Reality Check: Taylor Lautner Hits the Gym to Gain Weight?

If you've been to the gym lately, I'm sure you've noticed it's been a bit overcrowded with everyone trying to lose weight in 2009. Believe it or not, according to Us Weekly, Taylor Lautner, is hitting the gym for the opposite reason — to gain weight. His goal is to gain 29 pounds of muscle, to play Jacob in the Twilight sequel, New Moon.

He said:

I've been working hard for eight or nine months, and I've put on about 26 pounds of muscle. I'm literally in the gym every single day for at least two hours a day. It's hard work. My motivation is basically my passion for the character of Jacob and the series. I want the fans to be proud of the movie, so I have to live up to Jacob.

To find out what else he's doing besides exercising a ton

.

Taylor is also "trying to eat as much as possible." He told Us Weekly, "Basically I'm supposed to eat everything I can and try to keep it lean. Lean meats and veggies."

Well it sounds like this 16-year-old actor is serious about getting in shape and bulking up. He must be doing lots of weight lifting and good ol' strength training to build his muscles, and so far, he's definitely looking beefier.

I completely agree Westopher. I have been thin all my life and felt like crap for being "skinny". I am okay withbit now but it can be just as hurtful as being called fat. I just hope that he is not damaging his body. His body was on its own course. I hope he is doing this in an healthy way.He looks better thoguh. Didn't he play Shark Boy??
