Kellan Lutz has finally settled the debate once at for all. Which actor – Taylor Lautner, Robert Pattinson, or himself – has the best “Twilight Saga” six-pack?
“I think Rob [Pattinson] does now,” Kellan told Access Hollywood from the set of “Breaking Dawn” in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where the star was meeting Eclipse gum’s recent lucky contest winner, timed with the movie’s upcoming DVD release. “Rob has been very diligent on his bicycle. He bikes a lot and he’s been training. I’m very impressed with him and I’d say that Rob [has the best abs] now.”
The actor, who plays Robert Pattinson’s vampire brother, Emmett Cullen, in “The Twilight Saga,” is currently shooting “Breaking Dawn, Part 1” and is looking forward to battling Kristen Stewart.
“I’m really excited to shoot the arm wrestling scene between Bella and Emmett because I know it’s one of those scenes that the fans are really looking forward to,” Kellan explained. “Even when I do conventions or hang out with the fans, they’re excited and they’re like, ‘Is that going to be in the screenplay, in the movie?’ And it is… and I can’t wait to shoot it.”
Now that Kellan has three “Twilight” movies under his belt, he explained what his biggest challenge is on the outset of filming the fourth.
“Definitely trying to get those contacts in my eyes,” he explained with a grin. “Those things… I have two technicians that kind of hold me down and dim the lights. I have small eyes and then my eyes are very sensitive. So, it’s not something I always look forward to when I have to come in an hour early to get the contacts in.”
“Breaking Dawn” will be released as two separate films with the first installment hitting theaters on November 18, 2011, and the second part on November 16, 2012. Until then, Kellan is showing no signs of slowing down.
The actor has five movies coming up including “A Warriors Heart” (which he shot with his “Twilight” co-star, Ashley Greene), and the crime mystery movie “Meskada,” which is currently out in theatres. Also on Kellan’s plate is “The Killing Game” with Samuel L. Jackson, “Love, Wedding, Marriage” with Mandy Moore, and “The Immortals,” in which the actor will play the Greek god, Poseidon.
