Lautner's abs in particular have been subject to media attention, with The Wrap stating that companies bidding for the actor in movies in 2011 would "shell out for the young actor's much-on-display though mostly untried abs." Before the actor turned 18, his sexualized image was often critiqued, and subject to controversy.In December 2009, Lautner appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone in a wet T-shirt. Online said to wait a few months when Lautner would "be of age, which will make this whole operation you got going on completely legal." Brent Hartinger, a columnist for After Elton, blasted the magazine, calling the questioning "unimaginably irresponsible," commenting that Lautner was just "a 17-year old kid" and that while the rumors were baseless and speculation from certain blogs and fans, it was disappointing that a "legitimate media outlet" would print gossip.Lautner has said that he has never thought of moving out on his own, stating, "The thing I love is that my home life hasn't changed. I still help out with the lawn." He owns a BMW 5 series, with dark-tinted windows intended to provide anonymity.He has stated on Late Show with David Letterman that if he does not have work, he would like to go back to school.Lautner then earned voice-over roles in animated series such as Danny Phantom, Duck Dodgers, and What's New, Scooby-Doo? The same year, he earned his first breakout role, starring in the film, The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D.which was received with negative reviews from critics, and was a minor international success. Two years later, Lautner appeared in a lead role in the short-lived NBC drama, My Own Worst Enemy, portraying Christian Slater's son, Jack Spivey.
Although it received generally negative reviews, Lautner returned for the third Twilight film, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, in 2010.
The trio appeared on many covers and televised appearances together.
In between the second and third films in the Twilight series, Lautner was a part of the ensemble cast in the movie Valentine's Day as Willy Harrington, acting alongside his rumored girlfriend at the time, American country pop singer Taylor Swift.
