LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Kellan Lutz says the upcoming “Breaking Dawn,” the fourth film in “The Twilight Saga,” is a lot more mature than its predecessors.
“There’s a lot more skin, first of all. It’s for a more mature audience. Our audience has grown up with us, and we have to grow along with them,” he told The Advocate, when asked if director Bill Condon brought a “gay sensibility” to the franchise. “The original high school fans are in college now, and they want to see more skin. Bill has Taylor Lautner topless all the time, so there’s some great eye-candy.
“We have so many cast members in the movie, I wouldn’t be surprised if one of the characters was gay and I just didn’t know it. I’d be all for it,” he added.
Kellan himself has been plagued with a gay rumor or two, but the straight actor told the mag, it’s likely due to his dating style.
“I don’t Google myself, but I’ve heard that people think I’m gay. I’ve heard it all,” the actor told the magazine. “See, I don’t really go after girls. Most of the girlfriends I’ve had have come after me.”
The actor said his laid-back romance style has prompted girls to say things about his sexuality.
“It’s really funny when girls get offended because I don’t hit on them. They’ll transform their insecurity into, ‘Oh, that makes sense, because I heard you’re into guys and have a boyfriend.’ I’m like, ‘Seriously? That’s your tactic to get me to like you?’ There will always be rumors, but I know who I am,” he added.
And one of the things Kellan knows about himself is that he likes a tidy home.
“Honestly, I’d prefer to live with gay guys,” he told The Advocate of his roommate preferences. “They’re the cleanest, and they just take care of stuff. Because I’m always away, coming home to a clean house means a lot to me. Trust me, I’ve lived with a lot of roommates, and straight guys are just kids who don’t pick up after themselves.”
