Kellan Lutz: From ‘90210’ to ‘Twilight’
Sure, he’s not getting mobbed at Mexican airports, but Kellan Lutz doesn’t have it so bad for a 23 year-old actor.
Lutz has a knack for the right kind of supporting role, and we’re talking off the silver screen. Costars like Twilight’s Robert Pattinson and 90210’s Shanae Grimes and AnnaLynne McCord are becoming attention magnets, for better or worse.
But eating disorders, contempt for rabid enthusiasts and constant red-carpet appearances don’t plague Lutz. He seems to be of the rare breed of young actors who have the talent for buzz-worthy project but no desire for instant capitalization.
“The fan attention’s fun and I’m very flattered,” Lutz told Saturday Night Magazine, “Everyone I have met has been so kind and sweet. We know what big fans of Twilight they are so we just want to please them as much as we can.”
Lutz doesn’t want to stay on the West Beverly High campus forever, either. He has designs on a Brad Pitt-style projects.
“I am obsessed with Fight Club and can’t wait to do a movie like that one day,” Lutz said.
And as for his heat-seeking vampire flick?
“I worked with a lot of my friends…we had the coolest, most creative director and we had the best crew. There wasn’t that much pressure. Yes, the movie is based on the book but I loved the script and I know we will do the book justice and then some.”
