New Moon heartthrob Taylor Lautner is reportedly eager to return to his usual lanky physique.
Lautner, 17, worked out furiously and ate around the clock to gain 30 lbs. to play the muscular shape-shifting werewolf Jacob Black in New Moon. While all the working out and eating have transformed the natually slim 5'8" Taylor into a super-ripped hottie, the young star will be glad to get his old body back.
Taylor Is Naturally Slim
“Normally Taylor is much thinner. It’s a struggle to keep the weight on because he likes to run," an unnamed source told the National Enquirer. "He’s into martial arts and has a pretty quick metabolism.”
Added the insider: “[Taylor] says he doesn’t feel like himself. He intends to stay fit, but he says he will take off at least 20 lbs. once filming wraps on the final installment of Twilight.”
While it's hard to put much stock in a tabloid report, Lautner himself admitted that gaining weight for his New Moon role was difficult. "The hardest thing for me was the eating," Taylor recently told Interview. "At one point I had to shove as much food in my body as possible to pack on calories. My trainer wanted me to do six meals a day and not go two hours without eating. If I would cheat on eating one day, I could tell—I’d drop a few pounds."
Taylor's Filming Schedule Is Fast & Furious
The superathletic Lautner, who's a former junior world karate champion, will have to wait until at least 2010 to return to his normal build. After production on New Moon wraps, its sequel, Eclipse, is set to begin shooting. After that, Breaking Dawn, the fourth and final installment in the best-selling Twilight book series, will begin shooting.Taylor Daniel Lautner (born February 11, 1992) is an American actor.

New Moon hottie Taylor Lautner who turns 18 next February, covers Rolling Stone December 2009 issue flaunting her gorgeous muscled body in a much-discussed cover photoshoot for the issue.
He’s seen wearing a wet t-shirt on the beach, riding a bike [you know, Jacob Black style] and chopping wood backyard.
What can I say, he’s only 17 but he’s a mega star with a super beautiful body. And basically it’s illegal to call him sexy and hot, but darn it, he IS sexy and hot.

hit the Today Show yesterday on the last leg of the promotional tour for New Moon.Ã‚Â In the interview he talks about being shirtless in the rain, Taylor Swift and what he plans on doing with his life. It’s so weird to think that he is only 17 years old. He is already so mature and he has already achieved so much success. I know that Taylor has the talent that will get him far. I know for a fact that there was no one else that could fill the role of Jacob Black other than Taylor.
