Kellan Lutz's claim that Robert Pattinson's ripped abs seen in some photos taken from the Montepulciano, Italy set of "The Twilight Saga's New Moon" are real has been refuted by an on-set source. Contrary to Kellan's statement, the unnamed source insists Robert's muscular body is fake.
"Rob had a team of makeup artists working on his stomach to make it appear as if he had a six-pack," the source tells Star Magazine. "Rob is definitely not that in shape. He hates the gym and will never really be a muscle man!"
Furthermore, the source reveals, "They used all the tricks - including liquid body paint, shading, and airbrushing - to make his torso look toned. Whenever they stopped filming, Rob would duck back insider to get touched up by the makeup team." That's not all, "The lighting team helped as well, creating the perfect way to accentuate the shading and highlights," adds the source.
Late last month, some shirtless pics of Robert Pattinson snapped during the filming of "The Twilight Saga's New Moon" in Montepulciano, Italy were published online. Rumors emerged soon thereafter, claiming the British actor's muscular body were fake.
And while Robert himself remained mum on the talks, his co-star Kellan Lutz insisted, "Taylor [Lautner] been training Rob a lot, and that's why he's got such ripped abs," adding that "Rob's been working hard. He's trying to be the best Edward [Pattinson's character in the films] he can be."
