Taylor Lautner might have won the Best Shirtless Performance award at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, but it wasn’t his rockin’ body that he was showing off on the awards show stage. Instead Lautner came up to accept his Golden Popcorn sporting a (fake) beer gut and slurping from a massive soda while admitting that his life has changed significantly since he turned 21.
“I’m just going to be real honest with you guys, I turned 21 recently I’ve been drinking a little bit, eating a little bit — a little too much drinking probably,” he said during his acceptance speech. When a photo of him in all his shirtless glory appeared behind him, Lautner added, “That picture was actually taken a few years ago. Those were the good old days. You could actually bounce a quarter off those things.”
He continued, “But in all seriousness, for us shirtless actors out there this is like winning an Oscar. … This is as high as it gets. This is the shirtless Oscar for all of us who have to take our shirts off — McConaughey, Tatum, Lena Dunham — this is it.”
This was the only award that “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2” was nominated for and won at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.
