Photos: Taylor Lautner is buff and brooding for Rolling Stone

November 24, 2009 |  3:35 pm
Taycover Rolling Stone magazine has a sexy, soaked and sand-covered response to Robert Pattinson's Vanity Fair spread -- a day in the surf with the insanely built Taylor Lautner.

Famed photographer Mark Seliger shot the 17-year-old, who plays a beefed-up Jacob Black in "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," in Malibu.

Howling hotness ensues, and in the magazine's cover story Lautner touches on his potential love interest (a fellow Taylor).

“Aside from being beautiful, she’s extremely funny, charismatic and fun to be around,” Lautner said of country crooner Taylor Swift.

So are they dating? Sly wolf Lautner simply responded, "Possibly."

The two costar in Garry Marshall's forthcoming ensemble pic "Valentine's Day" and have been seen on several dates since meeting on set.

Get more of Seliger's smokin' Taylor shots after the jump!
