You know him as the warm, cuddly Jacob Black in The Twilight Saga – Edward Cullen’s rival for Bella’s heart, and as a shape-shifting werewolf, the eternal enemy of the Vampire. It turns out that being a werewolf isn’t his only secret. Today, in a TwilightBlog Exclusive, Taylor Lautner comes clean.
TwilightBlog: Thanks for sitting down with us today, Taylor.
Taylor Lautner: No problem. You guys do great work on the site, I really enjoy visiting TwilightBlog.net.
TB: Lately, it’s been rumored that you are dating [co-star] Jackson Rathbone. Any truth to that?
Taylor: [softly chuckles] Oh, that’s what they’re saying about Jackson and me, huh?
TB: Yes, we assumed it was just made up by someone trying to start a ridiculous rumor.
Taylor: That’s funny. And at the same time, not funny. In actuality, J-Bone and I have been in a relationship for a couple of months now.
TB: Oh, really? You’re kidding?
Taylor: Nope! Once things didn’t work out with Kristen, both on set and in real life, I really started questioning things. One of them being my sexuality. J-Bone has really helped me through some things, both emotionally and physically. Mostly physically. Actually, only physically.
TB: Um. Wow. So, you’re saying you’re gay?
Taylor: Yes… I’m gay. I love men. I hate women, at least when it comes to romance.
TB: Wow… So how long has Jackson Rathbone been gay?
Taylor: Oh, I don’t know if he really is or not. I think he may just be pretending so that I will feel better about myself. In all honesty, he’s also dating [co-star] Nikki [Reed]. Sometimes I catch them making out. Gross. I’d never kiss a girl. Nope. I’m straight as a rainbow.
TB: Taylor, please say you’re joking. Girls everywhere are going to be heartbroken! This is a sick joke, right?
Taylor: I wish it was. I wish this was a joke. Actually, no, if it was a joke, it would mean I’d be straight and would have to do things with ladies. Nasty. Don’t even want to think about that.
TB: Okay. I don’t even know what to say at this point. Anything you want your fans to know?
Taylor: Yeah. First of all, if you’re a girl, please stop liking me. Secondly, if you’re a dude, you may continue to like me. That’s about it. Doesn’t get any simpler. Also, in Breaking Dawn, I’m going to imprint on J-Bone instead of that stupid baby that Robert and Kristen have. I hate girls and I hate babies even more. Not happening.
TB: Alright, everyone, that was Twilight star Taylor Lautner, who apparently is now gay. For you ladies out there, I sincerely hope Taylor was either extremely drunk and/or high, or simply messing around. And for you dudes, I guess you hope that neither of those scenarios is true.
Edit: Yes.... this was an April Fools joke. Sorry for the scare. ;)
