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.

‘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.’

MTV: Kellan Lutz Impressed With Robert Pattinson’s Workout

Here’s an interview with Kellan Lutz, found at

http://hollywoodcrush.mtv.com/2011/06/29/robert-pattinson-breaking-dawn/

 

MTV Hollywood Crush talked to Kellan Lutz (Emmett Cullen) recently. Kellan talked about the ending of Breaking Dawn and Robert Pattinson headboard breaking scene and his workout regimen.

Robert Pattinson is known for many things: his perfectly unkempt coif, his smoldering stare and his ability to make every girl swoon. Yet, one thing RPattz hasn’t been particularly well known for is his muscular physique…until recently.

In the “Breaking Dawn” trailer we see Edward Cullen take his new bride Bella on their honeymoon retreat, and it’s there that we get a short glimpse of his bulging back when he BREAKS THE HEADBOARD in a fit of passion. (This moment didn’t top our Shirtless Guide to 2011 Cinema for nothin’!)

After seeing the scene, however, some wondered if Rob actually used a body double. Well, we caught up with his “Twilight” co-star Kellan Lutz, who blessedly assured us that it was all Rob.

“Someone asked if that was me. Is that Kellan’s back?” the 26-year-old actor said, laughing at the idea. “I’m really proud of Rob for working out and really training really hard. He cycled so hard and trained very hard, and he’s really diligent. He talked to me about what proteinsto drink and what to do and he listened and cared. He had a great mentality for it.”

Um, we so can’t wait to see more! But Robert isn’t the only one working hard; Kellan has begun filming his new Indie flick “Syrup” (where we caught up with him on set) alongside Shiloh Fernandez and Amber Heard in New York City, his first film since wrapping “Breaking Dawn.” So was it hard for Kellan knowing he wouldn’t be returning to the “Twilight” set?

“I love the ‘Twilight’ movies,” Kellan said. “They enabled me to work with the commercial side of the industry and then make great independent movies that I’m proud of like ‘Syrup.’ It’s not bittersweet; its all sweet. It’s all pro vs. pro. It’s great that we shot the last movie of ‘Twilight,’ ‘Breaking Dawn,’ but we still have two more years of press, so it’s not over for a while.”

Kellan Lutz Interview With Ryan Seacrest

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.”

Kellan Lutz Reveals ‘Breaking Dawn’ Wedding Scene Was ‘Miserable’ For Kristen Stewart!

Breaking Dawn kellan3 280x560 HL: Kellan Lutz Reveals Breaking Dawn Wedding Scene Was Miserable For Kristen Stewart breaking dawn filming news

Hollywood Life caught up with Kellan Lutz (Emmett Cullen) at the Solstice Sunglass Boutique Summer Soiree on June 21st!  Kellan talked about the miserable weather conditions on filming the wedding scenes in Breaking Dawn Part 1!

We knew the wedding scene was shot in cold rainy weather but we had no clue just how awful the conditions were — especially for Kristen, Ashley and Nikki!

Kristen Stewart‘s wedding day wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows it seems. HollywoodLife.com spoke with Twilight star Kellan Lutz at the Solstice Sunglass Boutique Summer Soiree on June 21 in NYC and he revealed that there was more than just a little bit of mud and rain on the highly anticipated day! We’ve always heard that rain on your wedding day is good luck, but it’s definitely not fun!“Very cold. Very wet,” Kellan tells us of the wedding day. “Very miserable for the females who didn’t have heaters by them. But it was beautiful. It was beautiful; the set designer did an amazing job. The fans will really enjoy seeing it.”

Kellan’s co-star Peter Facinelli echoed Kellan’s comments when he spoke to MTV about the shoot in Squamish, BC Canada: “With this wedding, it rained the whole time we shot the two scenes. But you’ll never see it on film, they block out the rain. They put tarps up and you’ll never see it. But for us, it was very wet and muddy and cold.”

But even though the Twilight saga has almost come to an end, Kellan says it’s bittersweet.

“No, I’m not really sad. This last movie was 7 months of pretty tough work,” Kellan says. “And we are all very blessed to be a part of it, but I don’t think it’s really going to sink in that it’s over till the lastpremiere, then we’ll still have a couple years for it to really sink in.”

We have to say that Kellan is one of the most down-to-earth actors in Hollywood and we are so happy we got a chance to meet him!

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

Here’s an interview with Kellan Lutz, found at

http://www.eonline.com/uberblog/marc_malkin/b241857_kellan_lutz_on_breaking_dawn_a_long.html

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.”

kellan lutz’s special message for seventeen!

Here’s an article on Kellan Lutz, found at

http://www.seventeen.com/entertainment/celebrity-scene/feeds/kellan-lutz/kellan-lutz-video-message

Kellan Lutz, whose gorgeous face has shown up many times on the pages of Seventeen, seventeen.com, and even in our office, wants to say thanks — to you!

This interview was done by our Freshman 15 blogger andTwilight superfan Katie Quine, of the University of NorthCarolina! She says it basically made her life. 🙂

I’ve heard that you are quite the adventurous person and that you actually perform all your own stunts. Do you ever get freaked out at all?

I just love taking risks. I am very well prepared and very educated with the stunt, so I don’t really think about it because I let my instincts take care. I’m really into extreme sports and just having fun.

Rumor has it that you are in Louisiana to film Breaking Dawn. Is there anything really cool that you can reveal about the film thus far?

Everyone looks really, really great, and our director has taken a lot of personal time to talk with all of us actors so we can make it our own. It’s great to have that with a director. Everyone looks reallygood with the help of hair and makeup, and everyone’s really excited to be here.

How do you believe your character Emmett has progressed throughout the films? What can we expect to see from him in the final two movies?

Personally, I feel he’s progressed a lot, [even though] it’s difficult to show that when you’re not in every scene, but I feel Breaking Dawn is going to be great because you can see more of him and the relationship between him and Rosalie. I love Emmett; he goes from being the comedic relief to the protector, so it’s been a great role to switch back and forth.

One of the greatest aspects of the Twilight Saga is the depiction of true love between Edward and Bella, and your character Emmett and Rosalie. Do you think there’s such a thing as true love?

For sure, I’m all for that, and I know that it’s out there. If you don’t believe in something, there’s no hope for it. I’m going to believe in it and hope that it’s out there for me some day.

There’s no doubt in my mind that the number one thing on your fans’ wish list is you. What kind of girl do you look for?

That exact girl — you always want somebody who’s into you, and I think that’s very endearing. Personally, I love just a normal girl because I’m just a normal guy. I love some who has the same outlook on life, and loves it wherever they’re at or whatever they’re doing. I love to take risks, I love to travel, and I’m very outdoor-sy, so any girl who can pick up a football and throw a spiral will definitely catch my attention. A girl who likes to bowl, a girl who likes to camp out for movie tickets [is the type of girl I look for].

Now, obviously everyone is really excited that Eclipse was released on DVD today. How you are you celebrating, and what does being a part of such a beloved movie series mean to you?

I’m going to watch the movie with a fan who came out here after she won the contest sponsored by Eclipse gum. I’m excited to see the movie because I haven’t seen [it] in so long. It’s just so amazing to be a part of movies like this because I love my character to death. He’s been my favorite character I’ve ever played.

Fans are already anxiously awaiting the debut of both Breaking Dawn installments, which won’t be completed until two years from now. You’re driving us crazy! Where do you see yourself in the future, after the saga’s complete?

I fell in love with acting, and I love to fight. I’ve been training with my mixed martial arts guy as much as I can when I’m back in LA, so if I could do another movie like I did in The Killing Game, with Samuel L. Jackson, that would be awesome. [I would also like to] do [something similar to] theBourne movies. I’d love to switch it up. That’s why I really like Matt Damon’s career, and to kind of mimic what he’s done would be great.

And besides Matt Damon, is there any other actor you have not gotten the chance to work with but would love to?

So many! Working with Tarsem Singh in Immortals sort of spoiled me, because I got to work with so many amazing actors. [I would love to work with] Daniel Day Lewis.

The cast of Twilight seems to be an extremely tight-knit group. I’m going to give you the names of some of your fellow cast-members, and I want you to tell me the first word that pops in your head for each one of them. Feel free to tell why.

Taylor Lautner: Ever since I’ve met him, he reminds me of a puppy. I mean, he’s a manly man now, but he is always energetic. He’s like a little puppy with a tennis ball when he has his football around everywhere. He’s just full of life, so [I would say that he’s] just a little energetic puppy.

Ashley Greene: Angelic. She’s been such an angel in my life, and we’re best friends. She’s been [someone] really great to share these memories with.

Kristen Stewart: Genius. I am so impressed with her. She’s so intelligent in the way she channels everything [into her acting]. She’s just brilliant and a really, really good friend.

Have any sort of shout out you want to give to your fans?

You girls and guys are the best fans ever, and thanks for reading this amazing interview, and I hope you guys are enjoying Eclipse!

Kellan Lutz Interview In Scene Magazine!

Here’s an interview with Kellan Lutz, aka Emmett Cullen, found at

Nearly forty actors of his generation appeared inGeneration Kill, David Simon’s war opus that premiered on HBO in 2008. The acclaimed mini-series opens with a Humvee gunbattle in Iraq and a Marine playing dead, something Kellan Lutz wouldn’t be doing for long. “It was definitely a passion project for me, because my older brother was in the Marine Corps,” he told me as we spoke at The Loft in Baton Rouge. “I spent seven months in Africa, but grew up five years. To work with Alex, James Ransone, Billy Lush…a lot of these great guys we built friendships with for life.” Though many from the mini-series’ talented cast would eventually emerge, Generation Kill jumpstarted the careers of both Kellan Lutz and his co-star Alexander Skarsgard. After their seven-month tour of duty, Skarsgard booked True Blood. Kellan booked Twilight.

“All we did was work out, eat high protein meals. I was eating sixteen eggs a morning. That’s what helped me transition into Twilight: I was a big guy and that’s what Emmett called for,” Kellan remembers. “It was really funny to work with Alex, then I got Twilightand then he’s doing True Blood. I’m just so proud of him. He’s such a great guy and I was blessed to be a part of that Generation Kill crew.”

The success of Twilight rocketed its cast into the stratosphere, making Kellan and company household names overnight. But while the character of Emmett has given Kellan great exposure, he hasn’t been identified with the role in the same way that Christopher Reeve, while a talented actor, was forever Superman. The result is a great deal of freedom. “It’s been such an amazing process. I fell into acting and I found a passion for it and it’s really like a hobby to me. I have a great agent, we’ve been best friends, and we have the same dream: to not care about the money and to not care about the fame. We can be cool and collected and really plan my career.”

“I’m blessed to be doing the Twilight movies because I know I get to make multiple movies,” Kellan says. “So, let’s go find some independents with meaty parts: let’s find a drama, let’s find a comedy, let’s find a thriller, let’s find a romantic comedy, a love story. I know my strengths and weaknesses. So, I might not take the great paying jobs of playing the frat guy, playing the jock, playing the preppy boy, because that’s what people see me as already. I’d rather do something a little different. It’s very tough for me to be seen as vulnerable or someone who could be beaten up, so its tough to get those roles, but I’m all for it.”

The planning has paid off. While Kellan is currently in Baton Rouge filming Breaking Dawn, the two-part finale to The Twilight Saga, it isn’t the first time he’s filmed in Louisiana. Just a few months ago, he was the lead in two films that could not have been more different. While shooting the action-thriller The Killing Game in Baton Rouge, he was also starring in the romantic comedy Love, Wedding, Marriage in New Orleans.

“It was really one of the best moments in my acting career: doing two movies at the same time, shooting three days here and driving down to New Orleans with a six-hour turnaround, putting on a suit to do Love, Wedding, Marriage for two days. Then, driving back up, putting on prosthetics, getting all bloody and fighting. I didn’t have a single day off for thirty-three days,” he says. “And I was the lead in those two movies. I loved it, because I haven’t had that opportunity. Doing these two completely different projects was so challenging and I thrived on it. I never felt so energetic. A lot of times I only had three hours of sleep.”

“Kellan was an absolute delight,” says Lauren Thomas of Illusion Studios, the makeup artist responsible for creating his “wounds” in The Killing Game. “Even though he had another film going on at the same time, he was always first in, last out. He was just such a gentleman throughout the whole process. I know he was exhausted but he never showed it.”

The Killing Game is like The Running Man mixed with Gladiator,” Kellan continues. “Sam Jackson plays this new-age Caesar and I play the gladiator thrown into this Running Man-esque, fight to the death battleground.” In the romantic comedy Love, Wedding, Marriage, he plays Charlie, a newly married husband to Eva, a marriage psychologist played by Mandy Moore. It afforded Kellan an opportunity to work with actor Dermot Mulroney in his directorial debut.

“I play a typical, normal newlywed husband, who wants to have that first six months of a relationship, the honeymoon stage. You’re newly married and you just want to be with your wife,” says Kellan. “It was a tough movie for me. My character was just so matter of fact, so I didn’t have to be ‘large’ about it,” he says, indicating his own affable personality. “To have a director like Dermot who you can just go to…he was probably one of my most favorite directors to work with. He was just so nice and so easy going.”

In addition to Breaking Dawn, Love, Wedding Marriage and The Killing Game, Kellan also has Meskada, A Warrior’s Heart and Immortals, in which he plays the Greek god Poseidon. And while his career is clearly keeping him busy, he is careful to make time for causes he cares about.

“[My assistant] Richard and I just went down to New Orleans and worked with the St. Bernard Project, which is an amazing organization that helps rebuild communities and the homes destroyed by the levees breaking. We got to do some painting and woodwork. And there’s a lot of emotional and psychological trauma that comes with losing a house, so they have a great program to help,” Kellan says. “It’s so great when I do have time. And I’ve been blessed to shoot projects here in Louisiana, some in New Orleans and now some in Baton Rouge, where it’s only an hour drive on a day off to go.“

His work in Africa on Generation Kill also raised his awareness regarding the clean water problems of the developing world. “I’ve started working with Water.org, which was started by Matt Damon. That deals with bringing clean water to Africa so I’m really diving into that as well.” As he pointed out, many actors attach themselves to humanitarian projects for the publicity opportunities. It was clear to me that Kellan’s earnest interest is real, stemming from when he was growing up a young boy in a big family. Now, at twenty-five, Kellan Lutz is playing his own game.

People magazine talked to Kellan Lutz (aka Emmett Cullen) about his 2011 New Year’s resolution at the Grand Opening of The Cosmopolitan and Marquee Las Vegas Nightclub on New Year’s Eve!

“I don’t have too much down time, which is a good thing,” he told PEOPLE at the Grand Opening of The Cosmopolitan and Marquee Las Vegas Nightclub on New Year’s Eve. “I was in Arizona, and I got to spend time with my five brothers – that hasn’t happened in years.”

And though he’s known for his chiseled chest and hot beach body, his other goal for 2011 is to be even more disciplined: “I want to eat better,” he says.

So what are his food vices? “I keep saying I want to quit candy, and I slowly digress [to increase] the candy intake,” he says. “I eat late at night all the time, and I want to cut that back – and get more sleep. I live right across from Jack in the Box, so that’s not good.”
