The year is 2024, and we’re living in an era where an actor’s good looks can sometimes overshadow their acting skills. Taylor Lautner is an actor best known for his role as Jacob Black in the Twilight film series. On the other side of the coin is Canadian actor Robert Pattinson, best known for his role as Edward Cullen. He’s just released his latest film, and it’s received mixed critical reviews. Finally, we have American actor Ellen Page, who is best known for her role as Joan Holloway in the Hunger Games film series. She just wrapped filming on her latest movie, and it’s performed admirably at the box office.
These are just some of the biggest actors of the moment, and it’s easy to see why people are focusing more on their looks than on their acting ability. While they might not be the most famous faces in the world, it seems that whenever one of them graces our small screens or big ones, the world pays attention.
The media has a way of ogling celebrity, and this was made evident again with the latest Twilight movie. The media also likes to pit celebrities against each other, and this trend will continue with the upcoming sequel.
After months of media speculation, Taylor has finally spoken out about who he thinks is the real winner of the day:
- Taylor: “I think that when you compare our films and you compare our acting, I think that my films definitely speak for themselves. It wouldn’t be fair to say that one is better than the other because we’re all artists and we all have different techniques and we all bring something different to the table.”
- Ellen: “I think they’re all great movies and I think that it’s great that people like different things in different scenarios. I don’t know that there’s necessarily a clear-cut answer. I think that the people that are experiencing the films and loving them are the clear winners today.”
- Robert: “You know what, I think that it’s really cool that someone like Taylor would even think to ask that question, let alone answer it. I think that we’re all winners today because the film industry is still thriving, and there are still people out there that want to see our movies.”
