Taylor Lautner: Hotter Than Robert Pattinson?

Sorry Robert Pattinson fans, Hollywood Life reports that Taylor Lautner is the hotter of the two Twilight hunks according to the site’s experts.

A team of Hollywood pros (which includes agents, managers, and film directors) declare that the 18-year-old Taylor has a better chance of surviving in Hollywood once Twilight wraps.

Where does the 24-year-old Rob fall behind? He is reportedly “too broody” and stars in too many independent films. The expert crew thinks artistic fulfillment stands in the way of achieving Hollywood hunk status.

It’s true that RPattz prefers starring in dramas as opposed to action films: The British hunk just wrapped up filming on Water for Elephants this summer while Taylor is prepping for a starring role in the action-packed Stretch Armstrong movie.

An unnamed director says that Taylor’s “universal appeal” allows him to win these big-budget action roles:

Work-wise, Taylor has much more universal appeal than Rob. With his, strong, muscular frame, Taylor can go for a lot more roles that are needed in Hollywood, while Robert will be much more at home in the independent world. Taylor will definitely be more bankable when it comes to big-budget (and thus bigger earning) movies.

Another count against Rob? He reportedly doesn’t get naked enough to satisfy the masses:

Pattinson doesn’t take his shirt off enough. I think Taylor adds a few more layers to things that make him more marketable – he’s the next Tom Cruise!

What do you think, Twilight fans? Is Rob getting edged out by Taylor for top Hollywood hunk? Leave your arguments for your fave dreamboat in the comments below.
