Kellan Lutz on Kristen Stewart: 'I'm Proud Of Her For Being Herself'

Kellan Lutz on Kristen Stewart: 'I'm Proud Of Her For Being Herself'

Kellan Lutz gives a coy smile in this new feature from Elle.com!

Here’s what the 30-year-old Bullseye host had to share with the mag:

On being Twilight-level famous: “I learned that if you make your fans your friends, they’re not as crazy. A lot of the actors became so shy that they became unapproachable, which made the fans so crazy that they just wanted to rip their clothes off of them.”

On Kristen Stewart: “I’m proud of her for being herself. Times have changed now—there’s a lot of invasion of privacy and a lot of ruined moments. What [the paparazzi] take, capture, and release is often taken as a reflection of who that person is.”

On his own reputation: “People just have this perception of what I look like because of the roles that I play. If I get people to believe that I’m this airheaded, unintelligent beefcake, I must be doing a good job. But I know myself: I’m intellectual. I’m intelligent. I have a massive passion for science, mathematics, and writing.”

On his career: “I don’t have the dream to win an Oscar. But, like, a lot of people get validation, or feel that there’s a level of success that comes from winning awards. Personally, I don’t need that. If I do [win an award], amazing! Look at Matthew McConaughey and what he’s done…”

    Never knew he auditioned for still Alice for the brother role, he’s such a nice guy and so true what he said about what people perceive from the media , hope he gets to work with k in he future they seem like they would be goofy and funny friends .

    You mean for being an antiAmerican britshit propatainment fraud trolling and frauding America from across that ocean. What’s to be proud of.

  • Nina

    So agreed, she is a normal human being like anyone else who make mistakes, live her life the way she wants, doesnt care about the comments of people. Thats how many of us should live our lives instead of worrying about the others

    LOL @ I’m an intellectual. I’m cackling.

  • Penny isafreeloader

    Didn’t he say last year that he KNOWS he’ll win an Oscar? Huh..

  • Chub Rub

    He was on WWHL recently. He is so smart, classy, funny and talented. I saw a flash of a young Brad Pitt in him. I REALLY hope to see him cast in some decent hunky, drama type roles like Brad and Colin have been in when young.

    He is so HOT! mmmm

  • momsandpops

    I think Kellan may be a nice guy. But in the same breath he over estimates himself and his abilities. He has an arrogance that is somewhat annoying. He uses Kristen and other Twilight people ‘s name to further his career. Example :If Taylor Lautner is in a movie he wants to be in he will claim that they are friends and how he respects him. So on and so forth. Good Luck Kellan.

    Well, maybe someday…:)

    Not a fan at all, but he’s still around, so he must do something right, I guess …

    I just read that he said he wanted to be the next Twilight hunk???and he mentioned he liked Kristen right away when he first met her. He’s sounding like he’s wanting to take over where Rob left off.??? Very weird. He was also on Seth Meyers talking about his inventions. One was a pair of sunglasses that you can’t see anything out of. He mentioned that he was going to be an engineer, how intelligent he is, and that he has several invention patents. If they’re like the sunglasses, I don’t know how many he’s actually selling. He’s a little strange. He didn’t say he auditioned for the role of the brother, only that he asked Kristen to put in a good word for him for that role.

    This guy also rubs me the wrong way, but don’t forget that 99% of the time, they’re asked by the interviewers to comment on these people. And it’s clear why they would ask Kellan about Kristen and Taylor; they worked together for several years.
