Their characters are rivals in the Twilight movies, and now Robert Pattinson may have some real-life beef with his smiley co-star Taylor Lautner. According to a Sun Times source, Rob has apparently been getting “a little jealous” of all the attention TayTay and his rippling abs are getting these days while out promoting New Moon. The British actor has repeatedly told the press, “I’m not the lead in the second film. Taylor is,” but a production insider insists there’s a rivalry brewing behind the scenes.
Says the spy: “While Rob despises all the paparazzi and crazy magazine stories, he still has the usual actor’s big ego thing going on. He wants his privacy, but he also loves having arrived on the A-list and knows that being in the public eye is part of that. If he really wanted to avoid the press, you wouldn’t see him hitting all the hot nightclubs and restaurants in Hollywood or Vancouver. … He knows that’s where the paparazzi hang out.”
Oh, and Taylor? The 17 year old is a “total sweetheart, who gets a kick out of all the attention,” says the source. “He loves his fans, he loves this successful roller coaster he’s on and he’s very fond of Rob, as a colleague and friend.”
