'Twilight' star Robert Pattinson reportedly had a team of make-up artists working on his torso to make him look as though he had a rippling six-pack
Robert Pattinson's muscles are drawn on.
The 'Twilight' star has attracted legions of fans with his toned physique but movie insiders are now claiming it was achieved by make-up and clever lighting.
A source told the National Enquirer magazine: "Robert had a team of make-up artists working on his stomach to make it appear as if he had a six-pack.
"They used all their tricks - including liquid body paint, shading and airbrushing - to make his torso look toned. Whenever they stopped filming, Robert would duck back inside to get touched up by the make-up team.
"The lighting team helped as well, creating the perfect way to accentuate the shading and highlights."
The 23-year-old British star - who recently featured in People magazine's list of hottest bachelors - was delighted with the crew's efforts because he hates working out.
The source added: "Rob is definitely not that in shape. He hates the gym and will never be a muscle man."
