fanboying over locating some pictures of Lautner, it’s understandable why some people would spend time pondering whether or not he’s homosexual. I mean, despite the fact that almost all of his fans will never ever get to engage in a romantic relationship with him, or even be friends with him (sorry if I’m breaking hearts now), it’s fun to think about. Sort of how I like to think about how awesome it would be if I were to have friends.
But the thing is, it is impossible to deduce Lautner’s sexuality unless one were to ask him themselves. That goes for any celebrity, really. Even then, he may lie to you, but still – one can waste hours wondering if that glance at Robert Pattinson in “Twilight” was filled with hidden longing, or if that gesture he made in “New Moon” actually represented his repressed desires for men, or if the second letter of every word he said in one of his interviews secretly spelled out “I like boys.” And yet, it will forever remain a mystery, because his sexual orientation is only his business and does not affect his ability to act, sing, play basketball, or look sexy at all.
That goes for almost any aspect of any celebrity. I become a little unnerved when people say things like “I don’t just love Justin Bieber because he’s cute, I love him because of his personality too!” Has anyone who is reading this post right now met Justin Bieber before? Have any of the millions of girls who swear that he is the sweetest thing ever actually hung out with him before? People should not judge celebrities based on their supposed personalities – sure, they can give intellectual interviews and be philanthropic, which are definitely positive things – but everything these people decide to portray themselves as to the camera could be false. That’s just how it is.
I’m not claiming that all celebrities are deceitful or fake – my point is that people shouldn’t waste their time over other people that don’t even know they exist. Of course one should have role models and inspirations and what not, but they should be taking all of that in at face value. With celebrities, what you see is what you get*, and nothing more.
So this is another one of those “ugh why do so many people in society spend their time doing unproductive things such as debating over the sexuality of famous people” posts. I have some (well, a lot) of other ideas in mind, so if this was too shallow or too scorching (get it? because he’s hot? anyway) for you, stay tuned. I’m going to go do Physics and Precalculus now, wish me luck!
What do you think of celebrities and their personalities? Is Taylor Lautner hot or not? Maybe I should start a poll. Well, see you guys next time!
*: edit, what I mean by “what you see is what you get” is that if a singer is really good at… singing, then that’s all there is to it. I don’t mean that everything a celebrity appears to be is who they really are, rather, it’s that one should judge their appearance as simply that – an appearance.
