Actor jealous of co-star's toned body

Robert Pattinson felt inadequate compared to Taylor Lautner while filming New Moon.

The actors have several topless scenes in the Twilight sequel and Robert, 23, admits he was intimidated by his co-star’s buff physique.

‘I was really terrified I hadn’t worked out at all until I saw Taylor at the beginning of the year,’ he says.

‘I suppose it was quite good for the movie because I did feel incredibly inadequate.

‘It made me feel a little bit emasculated next to him with my pre-pubescent teen girl’s body. I needed to change that.’ 

New Moon is released in the UK on 20 November.
