Taylor Lautner’s Less-Buff Twilight Co-Stars Are Upping Their Game

Ever since Taylor Lautner miraculously went from total weakling to strapping, eight-abbed man-beast during the short break between the shooting of the first two Twilight movies, his male co-stars have been inspired to play catch-up. Last night we ran into Peter Facinelli, who plays Carlisle Cullen (Robert Pattinson's dad) in the series, at an absurdly long-named event in Los Angeles (Calvin Klein Collection & L.A. Nomadic Division Event in Support of L.A. Arts Month and ALAC, in case you were wondering). "I'm really excited about Eclipse — we did a lot of training for that movie, like six weeks of fight training," he told us. "It was funny because it became almost like an in-house competition and everyone was always in the gym or working out. Sometimes we’d work out like three times a day. One time, I was in my apartment and I was going down to do my workout, and the elevator doors opened and Kellan Lutz was [in there] doing push-ups. I was like, 'Okay, Kellan, you win! You win the competition!'"
