Looks like Dustin Lance Black is Team Jacob. 

Or at least Team Taylor, that is, as the out-and-proud Oscar-winning writer took to his blog to sound off on Taylor's interview for his recent GQ Australia cover. 

You know, the celeb chat where Tay was asked if openly gay Hollywood tycoons Gus Van Sant and Dustin Lance Black made a pass at the hunky Twilight star when they were all spotted dining together. 

Let's just say DLB was not amused.

"Really Mr. GQ writer? I'm curious, will you be asking all of the handsome actors I've ever had the privilege of working with or meeting if I made passes at them as well? I'd love to be there when you ask Sean Penn that same question," refuted Black

So would we! Ya know Tay's response to the question was très boring ("they know I'm straight"); perhaps Penn would have something a bit more entertaining to say?

And while Dustin may question if the GQ writer is a homophobe himself, GQ fought back, insisting they were only poking fun at how friggin' hot Taylor is: "It certainly wasn't our intention to paint anyone in the story as a sexual predator. The point we were actually trying to push was that Taylor is irresistible to virtually everyone—regardless of sexuality or gender."

Couldn't agree more, Mr. GQ writer. Those Twilight-toned biceps have us dreaming about Taylor for days. Although let's be clear here: This is a total last-minute save on GQ's part—because, of course, Dustin is correct in what he's bitchin' about.

Also, since Tay-Tay hasn't responded to the controversy, we're hoping for a grand gesture to prove our fave celeb is straight as a nail. 

Like, say, a double date with Robsten? Taylor is due for a GF after his split with Lily Collins. Hey, what about Demi Lovato?


And until then, Taylor? Give us a werewolf stare, a shirtless shot and stay irresistible as ever.
