FitSugar Readers Vote Taylor Lautner the Fittest Male Celeb of 2009

Taylor Lautner Is the Fittest Male Celeb of 2009

Actor Taylor Lautner left the competition in the dust this year, getting 45 percent of your votes for the fittest male celeb of 2009 poll. Though some of you expressed dissent that there was a 17-year-old in the celeb pool, the Twilight actor earned more than double the votes as Ryan Reynolds, his closest competition.

The release of New Moon made it a big year for Team Jacob, and Lautner packed on 30 pounds to reprise his role as Jacob, the werewolf. In a matter of months Lautner went from scrawny to seriously buff, showing off a new eight-pack in the pages of Rolling Stone. Lautner's motivation to be fit doesn't stem entirely from a movie role, either; he's also an accomplished martial arts artist. From ages 6 to 13, Lautner studied karate and was ranked number one in the world for NASKA's Black Belt Open Forms, Musical Weapons, Traditional Weapons and Traditional Forms. Growing up, Lautner played team sports, and says that if it wasn't for acting he would have focused on a serious career in football.

Curious to see why Lautner may have received so many votes? Check out his recent gig on Saturday Night Live where he gave fans a display of his martial arts skills.

I mean all credits for him on getting so ripped and getting people's attention as well, but I have to agree with jkat about the unrealistic messages. So is the only way for a guy to get people's (mainly female) attention is to get ripped with an 8 pack abs? I'm sure he has other outstanding qualities, but I did watch him on talk shows and don't find him very interesting. I hope he learns from this experience and keep developing as an actor, not just a poster boy.

Ick...he is underage. And I think him getting ripped so fast gives teenage boys the same unrealistic message and goals that female celebs who drop to a pin-thin size zero overnight send to teenage girls. Makes me sad.

It weirds me out that guys so young have bodies so ripped. Hahaha. I don't know why. He's a sexy young man, though.
