Schauspieler Kellan Lutz soll sich von seiner Freundin Sharni Vinson getrennt haben.
Kellan Lutz (28) und Sharni Vinson (27) sind Berichten zufolge kein Paar mehr.Der Schauspieler ('Breaking Dawn - Bis(s) zum Ende der Nacht') und seine Kollegin ('Home and Away') kamen Mitte 2011 zusammen, als sie sich bei einem Vorsprechen für 'Step Up 3D' kennenlernten. Während die Australierin die Rolle bekam, tauchte der Mädchenschwarm nicht in dem Tanzfilm auf. Und nun soll der Star laut 'Us Weekly' auch aus dem Leben von Vinson verschwunden sein.
Dabei hatte Kellan Lutz in früheren Interviews immer von seiner Liebsten geschwärmt: "Sie ist ein sehr glücklicher Mensch und das hat mich gleich angesprochen. Es ist toll, wenn man mit jemanden zusammen ist, mit dem man die ganze Zeit lächeln kann. Es ist etwas Besonderes." Vor Vinson war der Amerikaner mit AnnaLynne McCord (25, '90210') liiert.
Seit Lutz mit der 'Twilight'-Vampirsaga seinen Durchbruch feierte, kann er sich vor weiblichen Fans kaum retten, aber der Star könne zum Glück erkennen, wenn man nur wegen seines Ruhms mit ihm zusammen sein will. "Ich habe das Glück, einen klaren Kopf zu haben und ich habe ein gutes Urteilsvermögen. Ich kann durch Menschen durchsehen. Inzwischen lügen mich die Leute so oft an, wie nie zuvor in meinem Leben. Ich glaube nicht, dass ich mich verändert habe. Es ist die Welt, die sich verändert hat", beteuerte Kellan Lutz im Gespräch mit 'Elle'.
Kellan Lutz im Interwiev mit " OMG ! " Kellan Lutz Reveals the Secret to Those Fab Abs
In case you haven't heard, Kellan Lutz is back on the market.
The 28-year-old best known as one of those blood-thirsty Cullens from "Twilight" and his girlfriend of nearly two years, Australian actress Sharni Vinson, have reportedly called it quits. (His rep did not immediately respond to a request for comment.)

But at the exact moment his relationship has ended, the actor's career is in overdrive. He'll play the ripped main character in 2014's "Hercules," and provide the voice of Tarzan in an upcoming adaptation of the jungle story. This month, he stars alongside Amber Heard and Brittany Snow in the satirical comedy "Syrup," which is currently available on pay-per-view and hits theaters June 1. "Syrup" is about a guy who has an idea for a new product that he thinks could earn him big bucks, but only if he trusts the villainous Sneaky Pete, who's played by Lutz.
Omg! caught up with the hunk about his "Twilight" co-stars, his latest flick, and -- the biggest question of all -- how he maintains such a buff bod!
What was it about "Syrup" and your character, Sneaky Pete, that made you want to take this role? I'm a huge fan of the book. [The author] Max Barry is a genius. I liked that Sneaky Pete never really spoke, but always had that look in the back of his eye like he had everything figured out.

What's the craziest thing that happened on the set? The time I asked the director [Aram Rappaport] if I could walk across the street for a foot massage at an Asian foot massage parlor and he said yes, then 10 minutes later my phone was blowing up and the [assistant directors] were looking everywhere for me. Apparently, I was in the next scene.

How often do you talk to your former "Twilight" co-stars? I talk to almost all of them when we run into each other or are in the same cities. But Ashley Greene was and is definitely my best friend of the bunch. We had the same agent before we got the movies, so we were already friends beforehand.
OK, time for the serious questions. How do keep your abs so ab-tastic? If I had a dollar for every time I was asked this question! Truth is I work out and do sit-ups. Boxing helps big time! I also try and train with the 8711 stunt team [the team that's worked with actors for movies such as "The Bourne Legacy" and "The Avengers"] down close to where I live in L.A. They are the best at making my body hurt from teaching me new Mixed Martial Arts moves. There are no shortcuts or secrets. I eat healthy for the most part, minus some candy now and again. I have a sweet tooth.
You've been cast as the lead in the upcoming remake of "Hercules" directed by Renny Harlin of "Die Hard 2" and "Cliffhanger." How will you step up your workout for that role? I've been doing two-a-days, which is workout slang for working out twice a day, morning and late afternoon. The director doesn't want me to get too big, so just trying to put on a little extra muscle and lean up as much as I can. And again I did some extra training with David Leitch from 8711 who's a big stunt coordinator. He's awesome.
How do you think Hercules would fare in a fight with the vampires from "Twilight"? Hercules would win, hands down. He's a half-god, whereas vampires are half dead … well, really all dead.
How do you feel about your status as a hottie? Ha. That's a funny question. I honestly don't think about it. If someone says it, it's in one ear and out the other, or if it's written somewhere, I swear my eyes jump over the sentence.
You were on "Sesame Street" this month helping Cookie Monster teach kids the word "vibrate." Was that word your idea? How difficult was it to keep a straight face during filming? The word was not my idea, but I thought it was hilarious and added a little humor to an otherwise straightforward kids educational program. [It's] one that I grew up on, so it was a real honor to be there. And I'm glad adults got a kick out of it as well.

What's your living situation? Are you still sharing homes in Venice, California, and New York with friends, or are you and Sharni thinking of moving in together? I'm finally living alone! As much as I've loved my roommates in the past and they're now my best of friends, I'm a big boy now and enjoy the alone time.
So not only does Lutz have an amazing body, but he's the kind of guy who keeps it classy by politely sidestepping a question about his ex?
Kellan Lutz im Interwiev mit " CraveOnline " über den Fight mit Mickey Rourke in " Java Heat " und über " Hercules 3D " Exclusive Interview: Kellan Lutz on Java Heat and Hercules 3D
Kellan Lutz talks fighting Mickey Rourke in Java Heat, the plot of Hercules 3D and walking around in a loincloth.
Hercules is the role of a lifetime, but you knew The Rock is doing a Hercules movie too. Was there any pause for you about embarking on another one?
No, no, and I love The Rock. I grew up watching wrestling. He’s such a great actor. I wish them the best. They have a great cast but the story is completely different. He’s much older and our Hercules is the man’s journey from him being a boy to a man, and it’s very real and human. Our character goes through being lovestruck and then heartbroken and then anguish and loneliness, sadness and remorse. It’s really a story about a man, a man and the journey to get back to his love. So it’s not a man with super powers. A man not understanding the strengths that he does have and he’s in denial because he doesn’t believe in gods at first and doesn’t believe that he’s the son of Zeus and just really feels rejected by who he thinks is his father. It’s just really going through the story of what a normal boy would go through and the situation that he’s forced into.
I saw a picture of The Rock’s costume and he’s unrecognizable with long hair and a beard. What is your look going to be?
You know what, I wish I had the long blonde locks. I was really fighting for that just because I always envisioned Hercules as that but we have so many fight scenes that are beyond epic. And riding a horse, if it’s not your natural hair, it’d be a lot of work and we don’t have time for that. So my look’s just, I have short hair in this. It’s very cropped and manly.
Will you have any mythological powers at all?
Well, even Renny [Harlin] himself, he’s like, “Kellan, I don’t want you getting bigger. Just get your abs to pop more.” I’m like, “All right, cool.” And I like being bigger. Even I saw Hercules as this giant guy, but the powers that he harnesses, it’s not like he’s throwing bears into the sky or really fighting off any of the monsters like Clash of the Titans or anything like that. It’s really just Gladiator pretty much.
Have you tried on the loincloth yet?
Yes, we walked around all day in that today and did some camera tests.
We haven’t seen your Tarzan yet either.
Yeah, that comes out in October. I was very happy to be a part of that one and do that, another dream come true. That one is motion capture and animated, so quite different. No hair, no makeup. You’re wearing a wetsuit with a bunch of pink balls taped to you. I didn’t have to wear a loincloth which I auditioned wearing one, with my underwear pulled really high and a wig. They’re like, “This is animated and motion capture so no need for that next time you come in” and I’m like, “Really? What’s that mean?” Then I had the time of my life doing it.
Is that in the original period of Tarzan or a modern update?
It’s very modern and contemporary. It’s very up to date and just smart. It deals with the situation with being green and not ruining the earth, being eco friendly.
Even though it’s motion capture, do you get to swing on a vine?
We had to fake it. We had ropes in the studio and we had a pool, a toy alligator I had to wrestle with that they then will create and make it real, so it’s tough acting. It really is acting in the round and you really have to envision the world. There would be a pole in the middle that you had to act was like a giant branch from a tree that you had to move. They built the world it definitely wasn’t the jungle that you will see in the movie. When I was doing ADR, I was just really blown away because I remember being there and I remember playing with the alligator or just being in my treehouse. That was just a frame of a treehouse that they then create. You just sit back and you’re like, “Geez, we’ve come so far with technology and being able to create a world that’s real.”
Do you do the Tarzan call too?
Yeah, yup. That was a lot of work and we can’t share that yet.
You also have Syrup coming out. What type of character do you get to play in that?
An antagonist. I very seldom play an antagonist and that’s all about marketing and the advertising world and how sex sells. It’s the story of two companies and it’s not really the taste that matters or the presentation or what consumers might like, but how it’s sold and the idea behind it and how marketing is so important. My character is Sneaky Pete. The book that Max Barry wrote is so smart and satiric. I loved it and I loved the script that Aram [Rappaport] wrote. My character was supposed to be Japanese I believe so it was just really great to play that character and that they were able to tailor it to me. It’s fun playing a character that doesn’t say much but you have to act with your mannerisms and your facial expressions to sell a feeling. That’s what I got to do with that one. I just really loved embodying a character.
Do you have some dramatic face offs against Amber Heard?
Not dramatic but I definitely get to frustrate her with how I am presenting myself I guess. I’m sure her character just is annoyed because I am her boss and I screw with her.
Kellan Lutz für " Peta2 " - bericht in englisch Kellan Lutz Sticks Up for Crustaceans
A recent PETA investigation uncovered horrific treatment of lobsters and crabs at a Linda Bean slaughterhouse in Maine. The investigative video footage shows animals being ripped apart while they’re alive and struggling. In response, thousands of compassionate people are crying out in protest—including Twilight star and animal activist Kellan Lutz.
I watched as conscious lobsters were torn apart by your employees, who then threw them into dumpsters to die slowly and painfully, treating them as if they were trash rather than living beings.
Studies have shown that all animals have the capacity to experience pain and suffering—that includes crustaceans such as crabs and lobsters.
When PETA investigated the slaughterhouse doing business as Linda Bean’s Maine Lobster, they uncovered the following: Lobsters’ heads were ripped from their bodies and dropped into bins, along with their abdomens. Their antennae and legs continued to move after their bodies had been torn apart. Workers slammed live crabs onto spikes to break off their top shells and shoved the animals’ exposed organs and flesh against rapidly spinning brushes. The crabs were then tossed onto a conveyor belt and dumped—alive—into boiling water.
Kellan Lutz vs. Linda Bean Over Lobsters: The Claws Come Out
Kellan Lutz will soon star as Hercules, and he's getting into character with a Herculean effort to save lobsters and crabs. After he saw PETA's undercover video footage showing workers at Linda Bean's Maine Lobster slaughterhouse ripping apart fully conscious lobsters and crabs and dumping them, still alive, into either boiling water or the trash to die slowly, he sent an urgent letter to the L.L.Bean heiress asking her to stop the most egregious acts of cruelty.
ACHTUNG : Der Videoclip ist nichts für schwache Nerven. Ich hab nicht mal eine Sek mir das ansehen können.
In his letter, Kellan pointed out that other readily available slaughter methods, such as electrical stunning or hydrostatic pressure, would quickly kill the animals before they are dismembered.
"Watching these animals writhe as their exposed internal organs were violently scrubbed off with spinning brushes made me wonder how you could possibly wait one second longer to spend a little of your profits on a machine that renders these animals unconscious prior to being processed," Kellan wrote. "Even if you can't relate to lobsters and crabs in the same way that you might to dogs or dolphins, they also deserve to be spared unnecessary agony."
You Can Help! Please help us flood Linda Bean with e-mails requesting that she switch to a far-less cruel means of slaughtering these animals. Let her know that if she is going to continue to rake in huge profits from the deaths of lobsters and crabs, it seems like the least that she can do.
Robert Pattinson fast nicht in "Twilight"? Kellan Lutz lehnte "Edward"-Rolle ab
"Twilight" ohne Robert Pattinson? Unvorstellbar! Doch bevor der "Edward"-Darsteller zu seiner Rolle zusagte, wurde ein anderer Schauspieler gefragt, ob er den Vampir spielen möchte: Kellan Lutz. Der US-Schauspieler hatte jedoch kein Interesse, den melancholischen Kaltblüter zu spielen.
Stattdessen begnügte sich Kellan Lutz (28) mit der Rolle des "Emmett Cullen", dem Bruder von "Edward" in der "Twilight"-Saga. Im Interview mit "Access Hollywood Live" berichtete der US-Schauspieler, dass ihm die Macher der Vampir-Saga anboten, die Hauptrolle in den Filmen zu übernehmen, die dann jedoch Robert Pattinson (27) ergattern konnte.
"Ich konnte mir einfach nicht vorstellen, diese Rolle zu spielen", berichtet der ehemalige "Twilight"-Star und plaudert weiter: "Ich wollte wirklich lieber eine fröhliche Rolle spielen, sonst keine." Am Ende konnte sich Kellan Lutz die Rolle von "Edwards" Bruder "Emmett" sichern und war glücklich darüber: "Ich liebte 'Emmett'. Ich bin so glücklich, dass ich ihn spielen durfte."
"Ich bin nicht zum Casting für die 'Edward'-Rolle gegangen, weil er ein bisschen launisch und emotional herausgefordert war", berichtet der 28-Jährige weiter. Fans der Vampir-Saga sind so mit Sicherheit auch glücklicher, andernfalls hätte es nie die Traumkonstellation von Robert Pattinson und On/Off-Liebe Kristen Stewart (23) gegeben.
Seit Wochen ranken sich Gerüchte um Miley Cyrus und "Twilight"-Star Kellan Lutz – pikante Bildchen und andere Hinweise deuten darauf hin, dass sich da eine neue Liebe anbahnt. Oder etwa doch nicht? Kellan Lutz macht jetzt reinen Tisch.
Was geht wirklich bei Miley Cyrus und Kellan Lutz? Das ist eine Frage, die in den letzten Wochen in der Regenbogenpresse munter rauf und runter diskutiert wurde. Zuletzt sollen die beiden sogar dabei erwischt worden sein, wie sie in einem Club in Las Vegas miteinander herumgemacht haben. Es wird natürlich schon darüber getuschelt, ob die 21-Jährige und der "Twilight"-Star ein Paar sind. Kellan Lutz war am gestrigen Montag in Ryan Seacrests Radioshow zu Gast und räumte mal ordentlich auf mit den wilden Fantasien der Medien.
"Diese ganzen Gerüchte sind einfach lächerlich", so der 28-jährige US-Schauspieler. "Ich bin schon seit sechs Jahren mit Miley befreundet. Wir sind Freunde, die einfach gleich ticken." Nach so einer langen Zeit, die man sich kennt, kann ja schon mal mehr daraus werden. Ein empfindlicher Punkt für Kellan Lutz: "Ob wir daten? Nein." Nichtsdestotrotz hat er auch noch eine ganze Menge Komplimente für Miley Cyrus auf Lager: Sie sei "ein großartiges Mädchen" und eine "coole, selbstsichere Frau". Das würde jedoch nichts daran ändern, dass Kellan Lutz derzeit nichts Ernstes im Sinn habe: "Ich bin total glücklicher Single und derzeit nicht auf der Suche nach einer Beziehung."
Auch für Miley Cyrus selbst scheint die Lage mit dem "Twilight"-Beau nicht besonders ernst zu sein – ganz nach dem Motto "Freunde mit gewissen Vorzügen", wie ein Insider HollywoodLife berichtet. "Miley ist nur darauf aus, ihren Spaß zu haben und möchte nicht zu sehr in die Tiefe gehen. Also sollte Kellan das Ganze auch lieber cool herunterspielen, sonst wird er sie nicht mehr einfach so zum Spaß herumkriegen."
Aktualisiert : Kellan Lutz beim " Sundance Film Festival " 2014 Kellan Lutz Attends the Sundance Film Festival in Salt Lake City
Landing in Salt Lake City Utah, Kellan Lutz set off to attend the 2014 Sundance Film Festival on Friday (January 17).
The buff "Twilight" series star was dressed for the weather in a black hat and coat, sporting a pair of blue jeans and snow boots.
Sundance's website states that, "Sundance Institute is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the discovery and development of independent artists and audiences. Through its programs, the Institute seeks to discover, support, and inspire independent film and theatre artists from the United States and around the world, and to introduce audiences to their new work."
One movie up for awards is named "Fruitvale Station," which "Follows the true story of Oscar Grant (played by Michael B. Jordan), a 22-year-old Bay Area resident who wakes up on the morning of December 31, 2008 and feels something in the air. Not sure what it is, he takes it as a sign to get a head start on his resolutions: being a better son to his mother (Octavia Spencer), whose birthday falls on New Year’s Eve, being a better partner to his girlfriend Sophina (Melonie Diaz), who he hasn’t been completely honest with as of late, and being a better father to Tatiana (Ariana Neal), their beautiful four year-old daughter."
