Brains, beauty and that body: Before acting, Kellan was in college studying chemical engineering. "I'm glad I'm not behind a desk," he says. "There's nothing bad about that, it'd just kill my heart."
Kellan Lutz is full of surprises!
While the 28-year-old actor and model is most known as the Twilight saga's Emmett Cullen, there are a lot of things that we don't know about him (there are some advantages to not being Robert Pattinson)! When we chatted with him about his new film, Java Heat, we accumulated a list of five things that would probably surprise most people.
1: Kellan's new film is an Indonesian action movie. He plays Jake, a reckless American posing as a graduate student, who is his polar opposite in many ways. "Jake's a very vengeful character. He has all this remorse and anguish in his heart, and he's quick to act," he says.
2: Offscreen Kellan is very calculative. "I don't just rush into situations. I'm kind of like a chess player and think three steps ahead. I like being prepared," he says.
3: Brains, beauty and that body: Before acting, Kellan was in college studying chemical engineering. "I'm glad I'm not behind a desk," he says. "There's nothing bad about that, it'd just kill my heart. That wasn't the route for me. I'm so blessed to be able to do [acting]."
4: Talk about a Renaissance Man: Acting is Kellan's talent, but it's not his only passion. "I love what I do, but the thing that tickles my fancy is my inventions, he says. "I have this invention book with about fifty different items. I never really took the next step to bring [most of] them to life. I just never knew how to."
5: But now he has patents for a few of them! "Currently I have one patent that just got approved and I'm adding some amendments to that. It's for the fitness world." His other patents include one for the wine industry and another for the movie industry. Now we're even more intrigued...
Keep an eye out for Java Heat! It's due in theaters in New York on May 10 and Los Angeles on May 17.
