Kellan Lutz poses for some exclusive shots for JustJared.com while atComic-Con 2011, held earlier in the month in San Diego, Calif.

Here is what the 26-year-old Twilighthunk had to share:

Just Jared: Talk to us about concluding the Twilight films now that you filmed the last 2 movies…

Kellan Lutz: I look back, and you know, I was working as an actor, it was really cool, I was very fortunate. I had justfinished up Generation Kill which took me seven months in Africa and a very epic project to work with for HBO and then I got on the ride of Twilight and that took off and it’s like Superman, the ride at Six Flags, where you just shoot and you have no idea what’s going on and it just continuously gets higher and higher and more enjoyable.

JJ: Coming from the HBO projects, I’m sure you had many ideas for your career, not knowing Twilight would become what it was, did you almost turn down the role?

KL: Yeah, I didn’t want to do it. I spent so much time filming in Africa, seven months, and that’s a long time to be away from your family and dogs. My agent wanted me to read for Edward and I read the script and thought that character was too depressing for me right now, I want to do something where I smile. I wanted to take a break from acting and I said that, I turned it down, I turned down the audition a couple of times. Ryan, my agent at the time really knew it was going to be a special project so he told me to read the role of Emmett, and I read it, it was only about four lines, but he was the big brother, the comedic relief and I fell in love with him. I said “Sure, I would love to play this type of role”. I auditioned, and long story short, here I am finishing the saga and Emmett is going to be in my heart forever.

JJ: You guys really filmed these films so quickly.

KL: It did go fast! I was thinking about that. Four years to do five movies is great. The movies have been nice, this last one was seven months because we shot two which was kind of tough, but it has been a fun ride.

JJ: Have you had any crazy fan encounters?

KL: I love the conventions that take me around the world, especially to the small cities and the small towns. To date, the most extreme one was the fan that brought handcuffs and wanted to handcuff me and bring me home. I was joking with her and said ‘Just lock me up and take me home’ and she yanks out some handcuffs and security had to step in. Now it is just amazing, I feel like the fans have matured with the books and the movies. It is still very extreme, but I feel like they are closer to us and that we are more human versus these characters. Now it is just fun hanging out with the fans. It is really fun to just meet them, if we are in the same location, just to hang out and talk over lunch, get a drink together, every one is really cool. I’m very fortunate to have such loving fans.

JJ: You have Immortals coming out, it looks amazing!

KL: I’m really excited for that. That is a dream come true. To work with Tarsem Singh who didThe Fall and The Cell, two of my favorite movies.

JJ: It has a really cool cast!

KL: Amazing cast! John HurtLuke EvansFreida PintoMickey RourkeHenry Cavill. For me that was a step up and a giant leap up. To play Poseidon! I love Greek mythology, I’m a Pisces – I love the ocean. So many cards just fell into place on that one.

JJ: We’re sure you have a lot of fun projects coming your way with the successes you have had. Especially with the body that works for those types of roles…

KL: Surprisingly (laughs) a lot of Chippendale movies…no, I’m joking.

JJ: The real life of a Chippendale (laughs)…

KL: Confessions of a Chippendale! (laughs)

JJ: What’s on your bucket list as an actor?

KL: A boxing role, a fighting one.

JJ: Are you seeing scripts that are in those genres?

KL: Yeah, the one that Tom Hardy just did (Warrior) I read that script and fell in love with it. I would love to do He-man, he was a childhood favorite.

JJ: It’s time for that to get revamped.

KL: Yeah! I would love to play a superhero, Marvel or DC anything like that.

JJ: Are you waiting for the right project to be the main character of a film like that?

KL: Yeah I am, I would have loved to do Captain America. I think Chris Evans was an amazing choice for it, and I can’t wait to see the movie. I would love to be someone that I grew up loving.

JJ: Let’s put some ideas out there for the studios to give you a call…

KL: (laughs) Flash, Aquaman, Jonny Quest I loved. You know, I would love to play a Ninja Turtle or something like that, Michelangelo.

JJ: That’s a lot of ideas…

KL: Hey! I’m down, I have a lot of roles I can play.

JJ: You have several movies that have come out or are still coming out this year – your schedule must be jam packed!

KL: You know what, it’s nice to be working. It’s just so weird being a movie actor because you shoot something and some stuff, especially independent films don’t come out for a year or two after. I ask myself what I did in 2010, and then everything comes out in 2011. It’s really kind of weird because time flies.

JJ: Who would you like to work with in the future?

KLRobert Redford, big time. I just think he’s a stud.

JJ: We could see you doing something with Scorsese.

KLScorsese would be amazing! I’d love to do something with Leo [DiCaprio] and him. I’ve also wanted to play like a brother role to Matt Damon or Leo or something along those lines. I think it would be really fun and trivial. Bruce Willis would also be fun, I would love to be a part of theDie Hard movies.

JJ: You have so many ideas!

KL: Well I’ve been thinking a lot. I make these goals and I put them out there.

JJ: You just did a romantic comedy, what was that like?

KL: I did Love, Wedding, Marriage and that was a very fun experience. It is something that I’ve always wanted to do and I am happy to have done it. I would do it again! It was fun.

JJ: How do you find time to maintain your body at its top shape?

KL: It’s tough! Especially when gyms close. Doing the Twilight movies I was in makeup and contacts and you can’t sweat or you have to go back into the chair, so when I’m working it’s all about not eating everything at catering and I try and cut back on candy and stay hydrated. I love to swim, but I got into running and I love to jump rope – you can do that inside.

JJ: Guilty pleasures?

KL: Candy for sure! Now it’s just one of those things that its I just have to not have a candy drawer in my room. I have Halloween candy from back in my Arizona days from back in 2003.

JJ: That’s some vintage stuff…

KL: (laughs) Yeah, thank god it doesn’t go bad. My fireball is, like, green now, the color dye disappears but it’s still spicy.

JJ: What is your paradise?

KL: I recently moved towards the beach and I just love being there. I don’t know why it took me so long, but now I go running on the beach every day and it’s beautiful.

JJ: Paparazzi gold…

KL: They aren’t usually there! When I lived in the Valley they would stick outside my house; now I moved and I am never home so they can’t find where I live. So it’s kind of nice.

JJ: What are the best and worst things that have come along with fame?

KL: The best is being able to travel but also lending a voice for the charities that I am a part of. I think that a lot of organizations like the Boys and Girls Club and the Saint Bernard Project, and Peta, I’m a big animal advocate and kid advocate. It is nice to let alone donate funds, a lot of the times they are a great organization, they just don’t have a voice. I like to spread awareness, that’s why I created twitter. I love the diligence of the fans to be a part of it. On the opposite side, the bad part is that I can’t really go to Vegas anymore and flirt with girls in the pools like I used to love doing.

JJ: We’re sure less people ask you out now that you’re constantly working and might seem unapproachable because of what you do…

KL: Yeah, you know what, people have alternative motives. Thank god I still have my good friends that I still have from before everything took off. Dating is kind of tough, right now I’m busy, I’m single. I’m just a normal guy, I’m always looking. Now I know what I want.

JJ: Who do you want us to cast you alongside on He-man so that we can maybe spark a romance?

KL: Ooo… Who, who, who… We could do Jessica Biel.

JJ: She’s single!

KL: She’s doing her thing! You know what, I would like to meet a lot more people, it’s kind of tough because you only meet the people who you are working with.

JJ: Who should we get to direct He-man? I’m thinking something dark like Guillermo Del Toro.

KLGuillermo would be amazing actually.

JJ: What’s next for you?

KL: I have a movie called Bumped that I’m doing, in Buffalo, NY. Ironically it keeps getting bumped so we will see when it goes. Just finished a movie called Syrup which was so much fun. Then I’m producing. I’m doing this movie called Lucas which is very much a Jason Bourne type movie with Scott Free Entertainment, they are coming along to produce.

JJ: Are you going to star in it?

KL: Yeah, it’s a really cool script. It’s really great to get into the producing side of stuff and make my own road happen.

JJ: Are you excited to do stunts and more action?

KL: Yeah, the film will be all action. It’s a psychological thriller as well.

JJ: Are you doing your own stunts?

KL: Hopefully! I will be able to now, because I will be a producer on it. That way no one can tell me I can’t.

JJ: Just don’t tell your agent.

KL: (laughs) I know. He doesn’t care, he likes my battle scars. I did a movie called Arena and a machete cut up my chest.

JJ: Well we can’t wait to see that!

KL: I’ve been practicing my leaps.

Ashley Greene Interview with Collider

Here’s an interview with Ashley Greene, aka Alice Cullen, found at

Exclusive: Ashley Greene Talks THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN, LOL, THE APPARITION, Bill Condon and More at Comic-Con

ashley-greene-twilight-slice

At Comic-Con, shortly after some very crowded press conferences and showing fans the first footage from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, I was able to sit down with Ashley Greene for an exclusive interview.  We talked about being at Comic-Con, working for director Bill Condon, what was it like to make the final two Twilight films, what kind of projects is she looking to do next, her other upcoming movies (ButterLOL, and The Apparition), and, of course, I asked what’s her karaoke song.  Hit the jump to either read or listen to the interview.

 

Click here for the audio (not the best quality as we were outside), or the full transcript is below.

Finally, if you missed our Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn coverage from Comic-Con, here’s the press conference with Elizabeth Reaser, Greene, Nikki Reed, Julia Jones and BooBoo Stewart.  Here’sthe press conference with Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and director Bill Condon.  And here’s our recap of the Hall H Twilight panel.

ashley-greene-imageCollider:  You’ve answered the same 50 questions in different orders this whole time so I’m going to start with my staple question: What is your go to karaoke song?

Ashley Greene:  Oh, gosh.  It’s probably the same as everyone else.  I mean, I feel like Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing is the one that always….I don’t really karaoke, but I feel if that comes on I will begin singing very loudly.  That is the one that starts everything and the unraveling of me.

This is the last Comic Con for you guys.   Is it something that you look at like, “Oh, my god. I get to do this.” or is it an overwhelming pressure to please the fans and meet everyone’s expectations?

Greene:  Yeah.  I feel like…wait, are we not coming to comic to Comic Con next year?

My bad.   Maybe you are.

Greene:  I was just like, “Oh, no!” So assuming that this would be the last one…

I could be very wrong.  Can you talk about coming to Comic Con?  Is it something that you truly look forward to?  There are a lot of fans here that are very passionate.  How do you take that pressure?

Greene:  You know what?  I feel like there hasn’t been pressure for the past few years.  Even before Twilight came out the fans started really embracing us.  They were really amazing.  That made me a little bit nervous because I really didn’t want to disappoint them but it’s gotten to a point where they are year after year are very gracious to me and they are really amazing.  They are extremely passionate.  So I think it’s now just very fun and it’s very exciting to see how passionate they are because it makes me want to do a better job.  It makes me want to bring this character to life even more.  So coming to stuff like this is really fun and exciting.  I think there is a big difference in hearing people talk about your fans and actually getting to go down, meet them, shake hands with them, give them hugs, and really interact with them.  It’s a really crazy and contagious energy that they have.

ashley-greene-twilight-movie-imageI think a lot of people and non Twilight fans are excited about Bill Condon.  He is a phenomenal director and is definitely a huge surprise to be taking over the last two films.  What was your reaction when you found out that he was directing?  How was it like on set with him?  Was it different preparing for this one?

Greene:  Okay.  Maybe that made me a little nervous. [laughs]  I was like, “Oh, my god.  Seriously?  Bill Condon?  This is….”  I feel like, “How much better can it get?”  You’re part of this franchise, you have these amazing fans, and you’re getting to start and finish something, which I feel like you don’t often get to do.  Then to be able to work with these incredible directors each time is kind of like a crash course for acting especially for me.  So when Bill Condon came on board I was just so excited.  I couldn’t believe it.  I think he is an incredible director and I definitely respect his work.  I was a little nervous to meet him because I didn’t know what he was going to be like – you never know.  I heard good things and then I met him and I was just like, “Oh, my god.  This is going to be amazing.”  He is so collaborative and very giving as a director.   His communication skills are amazing.  So we literally just sat down and talked about what I had done with Alice, what I thought about her, and what his ideas were with her.  We kind of just went back and forth and came up with ideas.  It was a really fun experience for me.  It was a growing experience, you know?

Totally.  I’m curious about hearing how he was on set and how it was like interacting with him.  Did you find for example that he had a lot more tracking shots or a different way of filming thefilm than what you were expecting?

Greene:  Yeah.  He doesn’t have a ton of tracking shots, but he was really great about just rolling with it.  He would say, “This is a great idea.” We would try something or someone would have a different idea about what would be beautiful, what would be awesome to do, or where their character should go.  He was very open about trying different things and letting beautiful movie god magic happen.  I think that was one of the really surprising things for me.  It was that I had a director of this caliber be so open to your interpretation.

In the last year you have branched out into some other film projects.  I believe that you haveButterLOL, and The Apparition coming up.   How has the last year been like for you with these other film projects?

Greene:  It’s been really exciting.  It has been equally terrifying and exhilarating.  With Twilight at least you are basically growing with this character.  So doing something like LOL that is a comedy, which I have never done before, with an incredible cast and a really great director was very intimidating.  But I feel like if it wasn’t that way there would be a problem.  Everything I do I am a little bit afraid of because I care about it and I want to do a great job.  It’s a new territory and it’s uncharted.  It was a little scary, but it’s been so fantastic.  Doing that was a really great experience and it has definitely inspired me to do more comedy and more characters.  In LOL I play the kind of “bad girl” and that is something that I had never done before.  I think it’s a lot easier to play the super sweet perky character because I relate more to that I think.  So that was certainly a departure.  I wanted to make sure that people and fans would respond to it.  I wanted to make sure that she had reasons behind the way she was acting.  So that was kind of a tricky film situation.  Then The Apparition was my first lead in a studio film.  So it’s kind of on your shoulders.  So if it doesn’t do well…that is not good.  So I was nervous about doing that one.  But I put a lot of hard work into them and I think they all turned out really well.  I’m very proud of something in each of them.

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN Part 1 posterWhat are you looking at now in terms of what you want to do in the future?  Are you getting ready to start filming anything right now?

Greene:  Right now I am doing a lot of post stuff like ADR, reshoots, and fun stuff like that.  There are a couple of projects that have caught my eye.  Right now it’s a lot of reading.  I’m looking into developing stuff with people as well.  I think that is a different side that I haven’t explored yet.  That would be really fun – to understand different sides of filmmaking.  I’m dipping my foot a little bit in that.  I definitely want to do another action film because I had a ton of fun when we did stunt work on this.  I have a martial arts background and I’m very athletic.  So I think if I can find a film where a female is a badass in it – that would just be amazing.  They are sometimes hard to find, but I definitely want to do something like that.  I think it would be really fun to do a 300 kind of epic film.

They are doing a prequel.

Greene:  Oh, really?  Great!  I don’t know if I would fit into that movie. [laughs]  But that sounds fun.  I definitely want to do another comedy because I literally came to set when I wasn’t working because it was so much fun being there.

They are doing the 300 prequel at Warner Bros and I believe that The Apparition might be related to Warner Bros.

Greene:  It is!

I am just throwing that out there.

Greene:  Connecting those dots. [laughs]

When are we going to see a trailer for The Apparition?  Do you know?

Greene:  Hopefully soon.  We are working out some stuff in editing right now.  We are doing ADR and all of that fun stuff.  But it will hopefully be very soon.  I know we are all anxious for everyone to see it.

‘Immortals’ Set Interview With Kellan Lutz

Breaking Dawn Poseidon 560x829 280x414 Immortals Set Interview With Kellan Lutz  immortals

ComingSoon.net interviewed Kellan Lutz (Emmett Cullen) about his upcoming filmImmortals.

Q: Can you tell us about the casting process and why you wanted to be cast?
Lutz:
 I read the script of this a while ago and I loved it, fell in love with it. At first auditioned for Ares, which I loved… they liked what I did, but they viewed Ares as taller, skinnier and more youthful, so I was really bummed because they didn’t really release all the characters for this movie and then I was like, ‘Okay, how about young Zeus?’ But then they had rumored that Alex Skarsgård and his father were going to do young Zeus and older Zeus, so I was just really bummed. I wanted to play someone in this movie. I love mythology, grew up loving it. I’m a middle kid, big family, that’s the thing you did in the farm country. [Laughs] I lived in Iowa, I loved mythology. I don’t know, we’re like that. But I also love Poseidon and I’m a Pieces, March 15th is my birthday, I love to swim, I competed in swimming, I swim in my backyard as much as I can when I’m back home and again, I never saw the role of Poseidon in here. So then they called back saying that I couldn’t do young Zeus and then they offered me Poseidon and I’m like, “What? Where’s Poseidon? Yeah! For sure!” 

Q: Do you see this movie as a step up for you or a challenge to get out of “The Twilight Saga”?
Lutz:
 I’m very blessed with “The Saga” because I am a character that, yeah, people ask why I don’t have as many lines as everyone else. Well, I can’t change the books so my character’s more of a presence. Even in “Eclipse,” I have more action and fighting scenes than I do dialogue. I can’t help that. I’m very fortunate and blessed that it still pushes my career up to the level where I’m not the face of the books, so I’m still, like floating, so the next thing I do, like the other independent movies I do and I’m very choosy with like “The Killing Game” is my own type of underground “Gladiator”/Jason Bourne type of movie. That’s what I want to do so being a part of these huge commercial movies like “Twilight” opens up doors so I can be the star of other movies and really show my acting chops, show and pick what I want to do as an actor kind of molded my career.

Q: With the very first “Twilight,” you knew sequel potential existed. Sometimes these big movies come out and they’re a success and then everyone scrambles to figure out how to make the sequel. Is there a sense of that on this set?
Lutz:
 This movie is different than any movie you guys will ever see because it’s not based on a book, it’s based on a really original idea, concept, mixing mythology, creating a story out of its own. It doesn’t have to follow any guidelines. That’s the beauty of it. What you’ll see in the beginning of this movie and what it transforms into as far as the story of Theseus and then what it ends on, kind of reflects back to the beginning and takes you on another journey of who might this new hero be. And then as you see with the epic battle with us Gods at the end, you guys are all here as we’re shooting – again, these are big movies and you always look to capitalize on sequels, third movies.

From day one when Tarsem showed us what he saw of each set, he built little models and I loved those 3D puzzles growing up… what he made with these models, I felt like a little boy again. I wanted to go play with my toys. And seeing these blown up, in here like we’re shooting with the Titan’s tomb, it’s so surreal again because it’s exactly how I saw it times ten and he can just create anything. And with the end of this movie it’s going to make you be like, ‘Wow, I just want to see where this next story goes.’

Kellan Lutz (Emmett Cullen) called in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest on Monday, June 27th for a quick interview.   Kellan talked about his upcoming movie Immortals and being an uncle to a hybrid baby in Breaking Dawn.  LOL!  Ryan asked if Kellan will go to Nikki Reed’s wedding to Paul McDonald.

“Twilight” hottie, Kellan Lutz called into “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” on Monday to discuss his upcoming movie “Immortals,” how he got the body of a Greek god, and whether of not he will be in attendance when “Twilight” co-star Nikki Reed marries Paul McDonald from “American Idol.”

Earlier this month, Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald announced their engagement, has Kellen received his invite to the wedding yet?

“I’ve never seen Nikki so happy and we really got close throughout all these movies. I’m just so happy for her. It’s great to see, especially in Hollywood, that real lovely happiness or marriage and I hope I’m invited!” Kellan shared.

When asked about his own love life, specifically his on-off relationship with AnnaLynne McCord, Kellan replied “We are both busy and we are both focused on our work.” Ladies, it sounds like Kellan may be single!

Focused on work, Kellan is currently in New York filming “Syrup,” and recently finished shooting the extraordinary Greek epic “Immortals.”

MTV: Does Robert Pattinson Think He’ll Win Best Kiss At The MTV Movie Awards

Here’s an interview with Robert Pattinson, found at

http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1663773/robert-pattinson-movie-awards-best-kiss.jhtml

‘It’s kind of terrifying if you suddenly stop winning it,’ he says of winning with Kristen Stewart back-to-back years.

Robert Pattinson

The 2011 MTV Movie Awards are less than a month away, on Sunday, June 5, and “Twilight” hunk Robert Pattinson is hoping he and Kristen Stewart can once again take home the prize for Best Kiss.

 

 

“It’s kind of terrifying if you suddenly stop winning it. You’re like, ‘Oh God!’ ” Pattinson told MTV UK about his chances this year after winning at back-to-back shows.

This year, Stewart is not only nominated for kissing Pattinson in “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” but also onscreen romantic rival Taylor Lautner. “It’s almost worse than if you stop winning, like, acting awards or whatever,” Pattinson continued, sharing his disappointment at the idea of losing this year. “If you can’t kiss anymore, it’s like, ‘What? I’m still good at kissing!’ ”

The film is nominated seven other times, including for Best Movie, Best Female Performance, Best Male Performance, Best Breakout Star and Best Fight, so there’s a good chance that if Pattinson doesn’t take home the Golden Popcorn for Best Kiss, he won’t go home empty-handed.

The 2011 MTV Movie Awards will be hosted by actor/comedian Jason Sudeikis and will be broadcast live from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California, on Sunday, June 5, at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.

Lupe Fiasco and Trey Songz are set to perform at the big show. Ryan Reynolds, Nicki Minaj, Selena Gomez, Jason Segel, Aziz Ansari and Steve Carell are presenting at the show, and more appearances will be announced soon.

You know Ashley Greene for her red carpet looks, her turns as Alice Cullen in theTwilight movie series, and—admit it, tabloid junkies—as Joe Jonas’s ex. This month, she gets her Farah Fawcett on in the indie drama Skateland set in the early 1980s, playing Michelle, a college-bound teenage mall employee with a crush on her longtime friend Ritchie, a slacker genius who works at a dying roller skating rink. We asked the actress about all things ’80s, high school beauty, and for her favorite products and tips.

Your character, Michelle, is a real music buff. Do you have a favorite ’80s song? “I don’t! I wasn’t very well-versed in ’80s music [until the movie], so it was a good thing that they gave us all a full iPod and introduced us to The Cure and Joy Division.”

Who do you think had the best retro look? “Farah Fawcett. Best ’80s hair. Definitely.”

You kind of have that feathered hair in the movie. “That’s who we were inspired by.”

You also rocked blue eye shadow. Would you do that in real life? “Probably not. But it was really fun to do stuff like that on film. You know what? Maybe I’d wear a different shade, a very sheer blue, one that’s not as intense.”

Are there any ’80s trends that you do love? “I like very bright, bright neon colors. I have a really amazing neon green clutch that adds a pop of color to an outfit. I’ll do some retro-inspired pieces, but never an ’80s ensemble.”

What’s a current trend that you wouldn’t wear? “Boyfriend jeans don’t look good on me, as much as I try to do it. They look good on Halle Berry, but everything looks good on Halle Berry. I’m also not a huge platforms girl.”

Any particular reason? “I like stilettos with platforms but the full-on platforms that are kind of coming back just remind me of when I was in 6th grade.”

What was your high school beauty look? “I don’t think I really had one. I know I wanted really thin, flat, straight hair. That was the big thing. Even though I didn’t know how to do it yet, I actually flattened my hair once with an iron. It was really bad. Not cute. And I went through a stage with dark lip liner.”

Brown? “Yeah, that was maybe 7th grade. I didn’t have a sense of my own personal style and self until I was much older.”

Have you picked up any makeup or hair tricks while working with the pros on movie sets? “Definitely. I mean, you’re sitting there for an hour watching them do your hair and makeup every day. And it’s so funny—when I started in this industry, everyone would always say, ‘Do you have any particular thing you like or don’t like?’ And I would always be like, ‘No, you can do whatever.’ But now I say, ‘Can I wear my brows like this? I don’t like my lashes this way.’ You learn what works for you. I think the best beauty tip I’ve learned is that eyebrows shape your face and thinner is not always better. That’s one thing I’d always do in high school—I’d try to have super-thin eyebrows. Now I’m always filling them in to make them a bit fuller.”

What beauty products are in your purse right now? “Mark Gloss Gorgeous Stay On Lip Stain—it’s not sticky and it’s not super-glossy. It leaves a bit of a stain, so you don’t have to worry about reapplying. Anything that’s low maintenance, I tend to like. I also have the Mark Light Bright Lighten & Depuff Eye Gel; I usually fly in on red eye flights, which I did last night. That stuff is magical.

Are you good at falling asleep on planes? “Oh yes, it’s like a talent. I should put that on my resume. The second we take off, I’m generally out.”

What’s your airplane beauty routine? Do you go bare-faced? “Yes, especially if it’s an all nighter or a long flight. For a shorter flight, maybe concealer and some mascara, if I want to look decent. Evian has a water spritzer I really like— that’s one of my biggest things, to stay hydrated, because traveling from place to place really messes up your skin.

MTV: Ashley Greene Likens ‘Twilight’ Finale To High School Graduation

‘Working with Bill Condon makes it kind of the cherry on top,’ she says of ‘Breaking Dawn’ director.

Audiences saw a whole new side of Ashley Greene this weekend as her ’80s-set coming-of-age flick “Skateland” rolled into theaters. The 24-year-old actress will continue to keep busy during the latter part of 2011, with movies like “LOL,” co-starring Miley Cyrus, and “A Warrior’s Heart” slated for release. And then, of course, there’s “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” hitting theaters November 18.

When we got on the phone a few months back to talk to Greene about “Skatetown,” she was in the midst of final shoots for the “Twilight Saga” finale and preparing to say goodbye to the cast she’s spent the last four years with.

“It’s fun to go to work every day, but it’s kind of bittersweet,” she said. “It’s sad, because I feel like it’s high school or something. We’ve been doing it for so long.”

Yet Greene considers it a boon to have worked with director Bill Condon on the final installments. “Working with Bill Condon makes it kind of the cherry on top, because he’s so excited and he’s incredible at what he does,” she enthused.

And, lest we forget, the two-part “Breaking Dawn” will roll out over the next couple of years, giving the cast plenty of opportunities to see each other, even as stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner continue to book high-profile projects.

“For two years, we’re going to have these movies coming out and press tours and all that stuff, and premieres. So the nice thing about that is that we know we are going to see each other over the next two years. It’s not as hard to finish out the franchise.”

No need for tearful goodbyes just yet, it seems.

Kellan Lutz on Breaking Dawn: “A Long Seven Months That Got Longer and Longer”

Here’s an interview with Kellan Lutz, found at

Kellan Lutz

No doubt Kellan Lutz is grateful for being a part of the Twilight franchise, but even he was a bit relieved when the two Breaking Dawn flicks finally wrapped.

Poor guy had a bad case of homesickness.

And who can blame him really?

We’ll let Mr. Lutz explain…

FACEBOOK: Have ya checked out Marc’s page yet?

“Honestly, it was a long seven months that got longer and longer,” he told me at Britney Spears‘ St. Bernard Project benefit. “That’s a long time being away from my home, my friends and my dogs.”

As Lutz fans know, his pooches mean everything to him. “I love my dogs,” he said. “And when you’re in Canada, it’s kind of tough to fly them in and out. Ashley [Greene] did it and that made it even harder for me not to have my dogs there.”

Immortals, Kellan Lutz

Next up for Lutz is the romantic comedy Love, Wedding, Marriage opposite Mandy Moore, but we have to say we’re most excited about Immortals, an action-packed Greek epic in which he plays Poseidon. “It’s probably my most favorite project,” he said.

And from what we can tell (and have been hearing from people who have seen early screenings, for that matter), the former Calvin Klein underwear model looks hotter than ever wearing, well, not much as the god of the sea.

And yes, it’s that Immortals flick—the one starring Superman-to-be, Henry Cavill. “He’s going to be the best Superman,” Lutz predicted. “He kills it in Immortals as Theseus, and he’s going to kill it as Superman.”

Exclusive Interview: Ashley Greene

Ashley Greene takes a Twilight break to talk about her cool new 80s movie, Skateland.

Many, many Twilight movies ago (okay, not thatmany), Ashley Greene took a break before starting production on New Moon to make a kinda-indie, kinda-fun, maybe-a-little-depressing-at-times movie about a roller rink in the 80s, called Skateland. It’s a sweet movie with a ton of heart, and you’ll get to see Ashleyreally shine in it. We were so excited about the movie (which opens tomorrow, May 13), we had to sit her down to get her to spill on everything from life lessons to her co-stars, and of course,Breaking Dawn.

17: What’s the biggest thing you learned about yourself while making this movie?

AG: I think I learned that I will always keep learning about myself. I’m always changing. I still have the same morals and values and foundation of who I was, growing up in Jacksonville, FL, but I’m such a different person from who I was when I was 17. You live and you learn and you grow.

17: Do you have any advice for your 17-year-old self?

AG: It’s not the end of the world. Back then, everything felt like the end of the world. My parents knew nothing. Hah.

17: Speaking of the end, how do you feel about getting so close to the end of Twilight

AG: It’s bittersweet. It’s like high school. You’re excited to graduate, but at the same time, you’re going to miss your friends. But we know we haven’t seen the last of each other—we still have a couple of years with the press tours and premieres.

17: Your Skateland co-star Shiloh Fernandez was almost Edward Cullen. Did you guys ever talk about that?

AG: Yeah, we certainly had discussions about (Twilight director) Catherine Hardwicke. We both had the same opinion on her: she’s just fantastic. She’s wild and crazy and eccentric and very fun to work with.
