“I worked hard to get in shape for this role,” Taylor said, reports Aceshowbiz.com. “My motivation was the movie and the fans, but I don’t want to become known as just a body. If I had to choose, I would never take my shirt off again in a movie, but I guess that’s not very realistic. I certainly won’t be asking to do it, though.”
The actor probably should rethink that considering there are many young women out there rooting for him … to be shirtless more often in flicks. But, he does have some competition these days thanks to Robert Pattinson going around topless in “New Moon” as well.
“I don’t know [who would win]. Rob, he’s getting some muscle,” he explained about competing against Rob in a shirt-off. “There’s some good competition… No, he definitely doesn’t need any pointers at all. He’s got it covered.”
