'New Moon' Wolf Taylor Lautner Chats With Us About Robert Pattinson's Abs & 'Eclipse' At The VMAs

By Chelsea Devine

So Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart may have failed to walk the red carpet at last night's VMAs, but that doesn't mean we were any less pumped to get the chance to get up close and personal with Taylor Lautner before the big show began. In light of the highly anticipated release of the exclusive extended “New Moon” trailer, you'd better believe we asked the werewolf to give us some teasers. Ladies, say it with us: shirtless Jacob and Edward.

Taylor modestly brushed off his “New Moon” exposure, explaining that fans “might start crying” in bad way during his shirtless scenes. As if anyone would shun his ab-awesomeness. Taylor went on to say that co-star RPattz has certainly given him a run for his money this time around. “[Rob's] getting some muscle. Some good competition… He’s got it covered.” We bet he does. In the video below, the real-life Jacob also discusses the third piece of vampire gold, “Eclipse," which as we all know, is currently filming up in Vancouver under the watchful eye of new director David Slade. From the sounds of it, Slade is going to deliver adoring fans another blockbuster champ.
