So Taylor Lautner has officially lost his jailbait status. Yes, the incredibly sexy actor from the Twilight films has his 18th birthday today. What does this mean in practical terms?
Well, it means my lusting after him is now very slightly less creepy. Like maybe .0552% less creepy.
One thing he has not lost, at least as of November of last year, is his virginity. Or so he claims. He’s apparently a Christian and doesn’t wanna just sack any girl who comes along.
I suppose it might be easy for him to avoid girls if he’s actually, you know, gay. There’s been rumors, of course. He’s young, he’s hot, how can there not be rumors? I tend to ignore such things, but I do take notice of a line in an interview he gave to Rolling Stone where he was talking about love and sex and such.
“Yeah, I would need to know the person,” he explained.
“The person”, Mr Lautner? The person? Not “the girl”, or “the woman”, but “the person”? Straight people don’t generally talk like that. People who are gay but don’t want other people to figure it out, but also don’t want to lie, generally do talk like that.
Now I’m not saying he is gay. Statistically he’s probably straight. Statistically he’s probably also not a virgin, despite what he says. But it doesn’t matter, because if he’s gay or if he’s been having sex, we’re not going to hear about it. I’m sure he’s probably got morals clauses all over the place in his contract to do the Twilight movies and so he’s not going to be coming out over anything anytime soon.
But I can dream, eh?
