Taylor Lautner, The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Hands off, Taylor Lautner fans!

Ever since he bulked up for the second film in the Twilight series, the 24-year-old actor has often felt objectified by his fans. In fact, the last time he appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, one woman repeatedly rubbed his abs. When Lautner returned to the show Wednesday, he admitted it's become a common occurrence. "I guess because they watched it onscreen they feel like it's theirs," he told Ellen DeGeneres of his famous six-pack. "It's so strange. They don't even ask. They just reach over and start touching me as I'm talking to them. I'm like, 'All right.'"

"But you must do that to yourself, because it must be amazing," the daytime talk show host joked. "You have an amazing [body]. If I had a stomach like that, I would just rub it all the time."

A bashful Lautner tried to downplay DeGeneres' compliment. "The problem is," he explained, "if I just got done eating pizza or something, it's like, 'You don't want to touch that right now.'"

"Oh, yeah," DeGeneres replied. "I bet it's a mess once you eat pizza!"

Getting closer to Lautner's stomach, she said, "I just wanna touch it."

Lautner was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote Scream Queens, airing Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Fox. No character's fate is certain on the campy horror show, leading to job insecurity. "The whole cast is always nervous, because it's true: the writers don't tell us anything," he said. "When we get a new script, we all go into our trailers during lunch and just read it as fast as possible. First thing, you go to the end of the episode and see who dies. Hopefully it's not you."

Later, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, ULTA Beauty pledged to donate $10,000 if Lautner played a game called "Oops! My Water Broke." The rules were simple: the actor would sit directly below dozens of water balloons as DeGeneres and an audience member took turns removing the rods keeping them all in place. Whoever pulled the final rod would win the game.

Before the game began, DeGeneres suggested Lautner remove his Ted Baker London jacket. As the crowd cheered, the comedienne made another suggestion: "You should take your shirt off."

Lautner gave a glimpse of his abs before pulling his shirt back down. "I'm shy, Ellen," he said. DeGeneres tried one more time to change his mind, telling her guest, "I'm just thinking of you!"
