Kellan Lutz Talks His 'New Moon' Muscles, Robert Pattinson's 'Crazy Hairdo'

“Twilight” star Taylor Lautner may have made headlines with his bulked-up body for series sequel “New Moon,” but he’s got another star to compete with in the abs department – Kellan Lutz, who plays Edward’s brother, Emmett Cullen.

In an interview with Ryan Seacrest on Friday on “On-Air With Ryan Seacrest,” Kellan explained how he’d gotten what Ryan called an “eight-pack.”

“I love to swim,” he said. “I have a pool in my backyard.”

And the muscular star said his workout regimen hasn’t interfered with his candy habit.

“I have a candy drawer and I’m terrible with it,” he said. “Gummy bears, gummy worms, chocolate, everything. I eat so much.”

Despite the star’s good looks, it’s his on-screen brother in the vampire saga, Robert Pattinson, who’s gotten much of the attention of “Twilight”’s female fans – and Kellan knows why.

“His accent and his crazy hairdo gets the girls swooning,” he said. “I don’t have those locks.”

“Rob’s kind of shy,” he added. “ He’s such a humble guy, it’s hitting him hard.”

Indeed, the “Twilight” stars have found their profiles skyrocketing in the wake of the film’s popularity – making it hard to leave the house.

“We all [hung out] before ‘Twilight’ came out, we would go to the karaoke bars and just hang out and relax and now it’s like, we can’t go anywhere without being hounded,” he said.

For now, he’s just going to the set – “New Moon” has just begun production in Vancouver under director Chris Weitz.

“Working with Chris Weitz and being with the cast again, it’s great,” Kellan said. “We did rehearsals all last week.”
