Sorry, Tweeners, Robert Pattinson’s washboard abs have been pegged as phonies.
The Twilight heartthrob — considered one of the hottest men on Earth right now — left fans swooning when he went shirtless while taping a number of scenes for the upcoming sequel New Moon in Italy last month. But according to Star Magazine, Pattz’ six-pack is missing a few cans. Set spies say the 23-year-old Brit achieved perfected his look with the help of modern makeup.
“Rob had a team of makeup artists working on his stomach to make it appear as if he had a six-pack,” spills one set source. “Rob is definitely not that in shape,” the informant adds. “He hates the gym and will never really be a muscle man!”
How did professionals manage to create the illusion that Rob has chiseled, ribbed abs?
“They used all the tricks — including liquid body paint, shading, and airbrushing — to make his torso look toned,” according to Star’s unidentified Twilight informant. “Whenever they stopped filming, Rob would duck back insider to get touched up by the makeup team.”
And that’s not all: “The lighting team helped as well, creating the perfect way to accentuate the shading and highlights.”
