‘Twilight’ Fan-Favorite Moment #4: Taylor Lautner’s Abs

We're counting down your favorite 'Twilight Saga' moments before Rob, Kristen and Taylor join us live Thursday at 7:56 p.m. ET on MTV!

Twilighters are just days away from the premiere of “MTV First: Breaking Dawn – Part 1″ , which goes live Thursday on MTV at 7:56 p.m. ET with Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner unveiling a previously unreleased clip from the fourth installment of the “Twilight” franchise. Following MTV’s special, the three stars will sit down for an exclusive Q&A on MTV.com.

Of course, in anticipation of Thursday’s MTV premiere, devoted Bella, Edward and Jacob followers are one step closer to learning what might be the #1 fan-voted “Twilight” moment.

We already know that the “Eclipse” tent scene , showing the friendly rivalry between Edward and Jacob, sits at #5, and a particularly sexy scene stands out as our next fan favorite. So, what made the cut at #4? Well, it happens to be Lautner’s reveal of his very cut abs in “New Moon.”

Long before that scene was captured on film, there had been fan chatter about whether a teenage Lautner could beef up enough to keep his part of werewolf Jacob Black in the second installment of the “Twilight Saga.” Determined to prove to naysayers that he had the muscle for the role, Lautner hit the gym and showed that he had the ambition, drive and physical bulk to keep the role.

“I have been working out,” Lautner told MTV News in December 2008. “I’ve been working out since the day we stopped filming ‘Twilight.’ I just weighed myself today; put on 19 pounds [and] guaranteeing [director Chris] Weitz 10 more by filming.”

All the promises and hard work paid off. The reveal of his admirable physique in the movie remains a fan favorite as our voters revealed. And, four movies in, it’s just as fun (and sexy) to watch the chivalrous Jacob strip off his shirt, just to assist an injured Bella.

Be sure to tune in to “MTV First: Breaking Dawn – Part 1,” which kicks off Thursday, November 3, on MTV at 7:56 p.m. ET, followed by a Q&A with Kristen, Rob and Taylor on MTV.com!
