Difference between Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner

Once in a blue moon, a film adaptation of a bestselling novel will exceed what the book itself had already achieved. Its popularity will soar higher than what the book has initially accomplished, putting the actors who took on major roles in the limelight, propelling them into stardom that not even the book’s writer can equal. That is perhaps a sign that more people prefer watching movies than reading novels.

The Twilight series—both the novels, and the film adaptations—have gained massive popularity, especially amongst adolescent girls. Aside from the seductive tale of vampires and mortals falling in love, the two main actors Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner have taken their hearts—and hormones—by storm.


Robert was born on May 13, 1986, in London. His father was an importer of old vintage cars from the United States while his mother served at a London modeling agency. Robert immersed himself in theater acting and production before his discovery and before being offered professional roles.

Taylor Lautner was born on February 11, 1992, in Grand Rapids, Michigan. His father was an airline pilot while his mother was in the business of software development. Taylor’s unique smoldering looks can be attributed to his French, German and Native American blood.


Robert started modeling at the tender age of twelve, during the time when androgyny was perceived to be fashionable in the United Kingdom. His most well-known modeling racket was with Hackett, a men’s upscale clothing company that was competitively placed alongside other brands like Polo Ralph Lauren. His role in the movie ‘Twilight’ as the kind and good looking vampire Edward Cullen has pushed him into the center of fame and popularity. Other noteworthy roles he took were in 2009’s ‘Little Ashes’ where he played a young Salvador Dali and his participation as lead actor and producer of the drama film ‘Remember Me’, which has just been released this year.

Prior to playing Jacob Black in ‘Twilight’, Taylor appeared with minor roles in the ABC sitcom ‘My Wife and Kids’; he has also recorded voice overs for the animated series ‘What’s New Scooby Doo’. He also took the male lead role in the 2005 adventure motion picture titled ‘The Adventures of Sharkboy’ and ‘Lavagirl in 3D’.

Other Accomplishments

Both Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner have been perceived as two of the youngest, most good looking men these days: Robert for his pale, elegant yet intense look and Taylor for his dark and distinctive physical attributes. Both have also achieved more than just winning the hearts of legions of young female fans.

Robert is an accomplished musician and composer. He has contributed songs to two films where he starred in: ‘Twilight’ and ‘How To Be’. He has considered music as another career option. Currently, he is considered by many as one of, if not, the sexiest and most good looking actor of this time. He has also done charity work for movements to help victims from the Haiti earthquake.

Taylor Lautner is well trained in martial arts, particularly karate, which he will show off in the upcoming action movie ‘Cancun’. He is now considered as the highest paid teen actor in Hollywood.
