The Abduction actor is widely known for his impressive physique, which was often on display for his early film roles.
After appearing in the initial Twilight movie, Lautner bulked up and worked out everyday, eventually gaining over 30 pounds of muscle for the following films in the hit media franchise.
This sudden change in body type brought much attention to the young actor and is commonly seen as one of the series’ selling points.

The Valentine’s Day actor appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone in 2009 wearing a wet t-shirt and participated in a subsequent interview, which many media outlets criticized for pushing the actor into an uncomfortable position.
The year afterwards, his workout routine was published by Men’s Health and went into detail about how the actor gained so much muscle mass in a short period of time.
In an interview with GQ, the actor discussed how he did not want to be recognized solely for his physique, and how the Twilight series showed his body in a story-appropriate way.
Lautner stated: ‘The reason I took off my shirt for New Moon is because it’s written in the book that way. And there’s reasons behind it.’
