    TAYLOR IS GAY!!!!!!!!!!?????!!!!


  • CA

    i dont mind if Taylor is gay , as long as hes happy its cool
    but why are all the cute/hot guys gay
    its not fair jk

  • Are You Serious?

    I have one question for all who think he’s gay…Why the hell do you think he’s gay? I’ve been trying to understand this for a long time and honestly the things people come up with like “gaydar” and all this crap are absolutely REDICULOUS . What set off your “GAYDAR”? Just because he’s polite? Because he actually CARES about making sure he looks presentable in public instead of looking like a slob? Because his hair always looks good? Because he isn’t making out with girls out in the open for the paparazzi to capture? None of that proves ANYTHING! People need to remember that Taylor isn’t a regular guy and NOT because he’s gay, but because he’s a celebrity who cares about his image because he strives for success! NOTHING about him has ever made me think that he’s gay! And he’s always been with girls. I’ve never seen any pics of him going out on dates with some gay dude. Dustin Lance Black is an academy award winning screenwriter and he’s gay BUT he’s 37 YEARS OLD! Do you think he was hitting on 19 year old Taylor? especially while with Gus Van Sant- a director? IS Gus even gay? i never read anything that said he is. and he’s ANCIENT anyway! you think they were talking about making porn videos or making a great film for the box office? All you haters are REDICULOUS! GIVE ME REASONS WHY HE MIGHT BE GAY? Besides that fact that you and many other jealous men out there aren’t as successful, handome or gracious! OR because YOU are gay so you come up with these rumors because you want him! IN YOUR DREAMS!

    @are you serious….I agree with you regarding gay. Most of Hollywood plays that number anyway so what’s new? Gus Van Sant teamed with Dustin Black for the film, ” Milk. ” Years ago, Gus Van Sant also directed “Good Will Hunting” with Matt Damon/Ben Affleck. He usually works on subjects that are on “society’s fringes”. ( I have read on Wiki that Gus is gay also.) Sean Penn nor Matt do not admit to being gay and have worked with these guys. Some folks in this field play both ways. Thought of that? As for Taylor Lautner’s present “GF”, she is now busy filming in Montreal and so far, NO paparazzi has followed him nor his gf there or just followed her. He, like other stars, can travel when not on set during filming to personal places/hideaways and no one has followed up with this. His affection for her was VERY obvious on the Abduction set and soon both will be promoting this film.
    Now, he wants any positive attention to keep his young career going and always is searching for new material to develop his abilities AND his Taylor-made production company. Possible that he could be only a producer for this team?

    And the guy with TL looks like MY agent…ha

    @dian: Hi Dian. I, like many others, question the validity of the Taylor/Lily pairing, but because of questions of his sexual orientation. No initimate pictures of the two in over a year. I think there are no pap shots b/c even they think these two are not together and they are not going to waste their time or film.

    You said he was very affectionate with her on the set of Abduction. (Geez he’s a co-producer of the film as well. Annouce to the world you’re bedding the boss.) The operative word is “was”. What happened a year ago doesn’t define the current state of the relay. I agree he can make arrangements to see her on set; she certainly made sure she was on the Breaking Dawn set. Given what you have said Lautner may have burned hot for her in the beginning but now it has cooled down. Relationship questions are an unwanted distraction during promotional swings; so it’s better to keep the status quo and pretend to be solid for business reasons. To me, this is looking like an on-set hookup that tried but couldn’t go the distance. It’s humilitating as well-she dumped a boyfriend for him; if they are confirmed as done she looks like a fool. She will be bagged on as the latest location itch that has been scratched.

    correction – I question the pairing NOT based on questions about his sexual orientation.

    I’ll try to keep this relatively short.
    1) i agree, i don’t think they’re dating either
    2) The only reason why Lily was in Vancouver was to begin pre production of Snow White- or that’s everyone has said. Therefore, she didn’t fly to Vancouver just for taylor but it would make sense for her to visit him because i believe they are friends and that’s what you would do if you and your friend happened to be in the same city at the same time. I don’t believe they ever really tried to be an item. it seemed to me- again i’m no relationship expert- that she was interested in him but taylor didn’t feel the same. that’s my opinion.
    4) do you or anyone know if he’s dating anyone?
