It sounds like Max Irons isn’t familiar with the phrase “movie star good looks.”

The star of the upcoming movie The Host says that he was unsure he was right for the role of Saoirse Ronan's love interest in the supernatural thriller because, as he puts it, he’s “pale and pasty.”

Max admitted to Us Weekly that joining the well-established stud brigade from author Stephenie Meyer’s other films proved a daunting task.

"You know, Taylor Lautner, with a body like that, he should be taking his shirt off,” said Max. “For me, it’s not so essential.”

Sure, Max, and good luck telling that to a million teenage girls.
