The issue, labeled as "An Inventory of Masculinity," shows the Abduction hunk looking mighty sweaty. We definitely don't mind!

When asked why he thinks fans are so obsessed with the Twilight cast, Lautner, 19, tells the mag:

    "Its definitely these characters we are playing. They are in love with Bella Swan, Edward Cullen, and Jacob Black. I mean, they feel like they know them. We are just lucky enough to be playing them. But I definitely think it's the characters."

His ripped body may also have something to do with it!
