Fake tan shows off Alex's abs

Twilight star Alex Meraz has joked that he lets the fake tan showcase his impressive abs in Eclipse.
The 25-year-old, who plays werewolf Paul in the third instalment of the vampire saga, spends most of the film running around in just tight shorts and no top.
"I don't have a choice! I work out quite a bit but then at the end of the day I'm kind of a canvas, I just let the spray on tan do its job," he said at the film's London premiere.
Alex claimed there is no abs rivalry between the werewolves.
"There is no competition because we know Taylor Lautner has the best body. He talks to his abs, and they kind of grow," he added.
His co-star Booboo Stewart, who plays werewolf Seth Clearwater, revealed he too puts up with the lack of clothing because "it's part of the job".
"It's the character, so it's fun. It's the character that does that not me," he said.
His work-out regime is also his bonding time with his mum. "Actually my mum is a personal trainer so she trains me which is really nice, I get to train with my mum."
:: The Twilight Saga: Eclipse will be released on July 9.
