Taylor Lautner Shirtless: 'Eclipse' Plot Necessity

Taylor Lautner shirtless in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse helps to advance the film's plot in a number of ways: a) you can see why Kristen Stewart's Bella may wonder if a werewolf might be more enticing than a vampire b) it shows that Lautner's Jacob represents earthiness and sexual desire while Robert Pattinson's thin, white-faced Edward represent etherealness and spiritual love c) it shows that Jacob may be young but he's a man. In other words, you can lust after him without feeling guilty.

Lautner was the recent favorite movie actor winner at the Kids' Choice Awards held in Los Angeles last weekend. He also shared with Kristen Stewart the best on-screen couple award.

Directed by David Slade, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse opens on June 30.
