Taylor Lautner has commented on a hoax of an exclusive People magazine cover featuring his coming out gay.

A photo of the cover went viral on the Internet on Monday.

The January 17, 2012 issue includes Lautner, the 19-year-old co-star of The Twilight Saga film series, wearing jeans, a gray v-neck t-shirt and a black leather jacket as he crouches behind the headline: “EXCLUSIVE TAYLOR LAUTNER OUT & PROUD.”

“Tired of rumors, the Twilight star opens up about his decision to finally come out,” the fake cover reads and quotes Lautner as saying: “I'm more liberated, and happier than I've ever been.”

“So false!!!,” Lautner tweeted to his more than 30,000 followers on Tuesday. “Don't believe everything. Rumours = Lies. … Taylor Lautner Coming Out 'PEOPLE' issue, is FAKE!”

A People magazine representative confirmed that the cover is “absolutely fake.”

The fake cover appeared just two months after GQ apologized for asking Lautner if director Gus Van Sant and writer Dustin Lance Black, the team behind the Oscar-winning film Milk, hit on him during a work-related dinner meeting. Lautner answered that they did not. “I think they know I'm straight,” he said.
