Taylor Lautner Packs on 26 Lbs., Nears Weight Goal

Umm may I just say...DANG!!! Good job Taylor!

Taylor Lautner has almost reached his goal of gaining 29 lbs. for the Twilight sequel, New Moon.

"I've been working hard for eight or nine months, and I've put on about 26 pounds of muscle," he told Saturday at the Access Hollywood Golden Globes gifting suite in West Hollywood.

"I'm literally in the gym every single day for at least two hours a day," added the actor, 16.

"It's hard work," he told Us. "My motivation is basically my passion for the character of Jacob and the series. I want the fans to be proud of the movie, so I have to live up to Jacob."

Besides hitting the gym, "I'm trying to eat as much as possible," he said. "Basically I'm supposed to eat everything I can and try to keep it lean. Lean meats and veggies."

It was announced earlier this month that Lautner will return following weeks of questions about whether he could effectively portray his werewolf character (who grows a foot taller and looks 25 years old in the sequel). Most fans overwhelmingly wanted Lautner back.

Lautner told Us the support of Twilight has been "crazy."

"It's blown up into something we had no idea," he said, "so it's really exciting. I'm so thrilled to be a part of something like this."

New Moon begins shooting later this year.

you know those pictures you have, the kind of "Before" and "After" ones? His face looks fatter, don't you think, a little rounder. He's so gorgeous and I'm glad he gets to be Jacob, he must care a lot about the character and his fans (me!) to go to such an effort. Good on him, I reckon!
