Actor Taylor Lautner has said that director Gus Van Sant and writer Dustin Lance Black, the team behind the Oscar-winning film Milk, would not hit on him because they know he's straight.

The 19-year-old star of The Twilight Saga film series made his remarks during a cover interview for the Australian edition of men's fashion glossy GQ.

GQ notes that Lautner was paid $7.5 million to appear opposite co-star Lily Collins in the action thriller film Abduction, making him the highest paid teenager in Hollywood, and is slated to earn $10 million for the time-travel film Incarceron.

When Lautner is asked whether Van Sant and Black made a pass at him during a recent dinner, he answers: “No, definitely not. I think they know I'm straight. But they're great guys. They're a lot of fun. It's not a coincidence that there was a writer, a director and an actor at dinner.”

Gay glossy The Advocate asked whether the question was homophobic: “Would GQ have asked Lautner the same question if he'd dined with two older straight women?”
