In January, a few days after my appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” aired, my friend Debbie sent me an email saying that someone had posted a comment YouTube saying that I look like Taylor Lautner. What the person, whose user name is “chuuchiee”, actually said was:
From a long distance, David looks a bit like Taylor Lautner.
Then, when my episode was rebroadcast a few weeks ago, someone named “Cecy J.” posted a comment on the Ellen website, saying:
Great Job David!!! Awesome and Inspiring!! P.S. Anyone noticed that he kinda resembles Taylor Lautner??? Just saying.
Before I get to the side-by-side photos, I thought I’d help out the readers who live on the moon or under the sea or, for some other reason, don’t know who Taylor Lautner is. I did my research, and found out that the two of us actually have a few things in common:
- We were both born in Michigan (Taylor in Grand Rapids, me in Pontiac).
- I love sharks, and Taylor starred in the 2005 film The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D.
- We’ve both appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine in a wet t-shirt.
Okay, so 2 is a stretch, and 3 is a flat-out lie, but still, we’re both native Michiganders. Taylor, Madonna, and I should start a club!
Taylor is best-known for playing Jacob Black in the Twilight movies – a role that made him a star in the dreams of millions of teenage girls worldwide. Last year, he was #2 on Glamour magazine’s list of “50 Sexiest Men of 2010,” and he was also #4 on People magazine’s “Most Amazing Bodies” list. He’s reportedly worth over $30 million – not too shabby for a 19-year-old. That’s right, he’s nineteen. And not even “almost twenty” – he’ll be 19 until next February!
Ready for some photographic evidence to judge for yourself?
Here you go. Taylor is on the left, and I’m on the right – just so nobody’s confused!
Oh, but let’s not forget that we may only look alike from a distance, so maybe you should look at smaller photos:
You could even step a few feet back from your monitor to increase the distance.
Since I like to be thorough, here’s some profile pics:
I’ll say this much: I don’t think I’ve ever been compared to a hot piece of 19-year-old Hollywood man-candy before, so…
Keep it up, David!
