Taylor Lautner sat down for a recent interview and in the process was forced to reveal his heterosexuality. In his defense, it may be one of the stupidest interviews ever.
Lautner was recently spotted dining with Gus Van Sant and Oscar winning writer Dustin Lance Black in LA, so GQ Australia interviewer Mickey Rapkin asked the 19-year-old if the two openly gay men hit on him. Because as everyone knows gay men have no impulse control whatsoever and hit on everyone, all the time. Especially actors who are half their age and especially when they are in very public settings.
Lautner responded: “No, definitely not. I think they know I’m straight. But they’re great guys. They’re a lot of fun. It’s not a coincidence that there was a writer, a director and an actor at dinner.”
The question that should have been asked is why oh why are Black and Van Sant having dinner with Hollywood’s most stoic young actor? This better not have anything to do with the rumored American Idiot movie.
