Taylor Lautner will only show off his chest in movies if it "makes sense".

The actor is famed for his role as werewolf Jacob Black in the Twilight movies, where he was regularly seen flashing his chiselled torso.

Now shooting has wrapped on the franchise Taylor is keen to become known for something more than his pecs. He was adamant he wouldn't strip off too much in his movie Abduction.

"In the original script there were six or seven shirtless scenes and I said, 'No, my character can't just walk outside and say, 'Oh, I feel warm today, let me take off my shirt.' It had to make sense," he said.

The star is also pleased with his new diet. He used to eat a great deal to stay in shape while portraying Jacob but now he is more relaxed about what he puts into his body.

"I'm enjoying that I don't have to be in the gym six days a week now, or force-feeding myself every two hours to stay bulky," he explained to Company magazine. "Now it's about staying healthy, but I've always been active and loved playing sports."
