Sure, Kellan Lutz thinks New Moon is a “great” movie, but he’s not afraid to admit he’s more excited by Eclipse.
“Eclipse is a masculine movie,” Lutz says. “I love it. All the stunts I was able to do by myself. It’s an action movie!”
In fact, Lutz thinks the third installment will bring even more new fans to the franchise…
“It’s going to be one of those movies where guys who aren’t fans of the Twilight series but like seeing a good kickass action movie are going to see it. And they’re going to bring their girlfriends who are anti-Twilight because they don’t want to be on that bandwagon,” Lutz explains. “Then they’re going to come and fall in love with it, too.”
And Lutz is hoping it leads to…well, we’ll let him explain.
“I have a great team and we’re really focused on becoming that new action hero,” he says. “I want to be Jason Bourne…and take over that franchise. I love doing stunts and shooting guns and doing fight scenes.”
Which brings us to his action hero physique. Lutz insists he’s not a “workout fiend.”
“I go to the gym maybe once or twice a week for 45 minutes,” says the actor, who will also be seen in the upcoming remake of Nightmare on Elm Street. “I hate running. I eat whatever I want. I eat pizza all the time. I have a candy drawer.”
As for the never-ending reports about his private life (Annalynne McCord, anyone?) along with the rest of the Twilight gang, Lutz says “it comes with the territory.”
That doesn’t mean we should believe everything that’s out there.
“Every day I hear that Ashley [Greene] and I are dating,” Lutz says with a laugh. “It’s like, why can’t friends be friends with the opposite sex? Like is it that bizarre?”
