'Twilight: Eclipse' star Robert Pattinson calls Taylor Lautner's body 'strange'

robpattinson_290.jpgFans of the first film were surprised to see Taylor Lautner's new abs in "The Twilight Saga: New Moon." So was co-star Robert Pattison.

"I didn't see Taylor until just a little bit before we started shooting," Pattinson told MTV. "When he came back, I had the same reaction as everybody else. I was like, 'Jeez, now I have to go to the gym!' But yeah, it was strange."

(The actor, who played vampire Edward Cullen, must have gone to the gym: He did his own disrobing act for the movie.)

Despite the abs competition, Pattinson said he and Lautner barely worked together on the second movie, though they'll have more interaction during the third. As for "New Moon's" box-office draw, the actor said his favorite fans are the older ones.

"I always find it funny when older people come up," he told the channel. "There was a woman who came up to me the other day who must have been in her 90s. And she said all this stuff... it's very unusual. And they say exactly the same things as 12-year-old girls! That is kind of bizarre."

Pattinson and Lautner will reunite June 30, 2010, for "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse."
