Kellan Lutz Addresses Gay Rumors And Toning Down His Beefcake Image

Twilight Sagahunk Kellan Lutz dished with ‘The Advocate‘ on the gay rumors, trying to keep his shirt on, and loving gay roommates the best.

On gay rumors:

“I don’t Google myself, but I’ve heard that people think I’m gay. I’ve heard it all. See, I don’t really go after girls. Most of the girlfriends I’ve had have come after me. So it’s really funny when girls get offended because I don’t hit on them. They’ll transform their insecurity into, ‘Oh, that makes sense, because I heard you’re into guys and have a boyfriend.’ I’m like, ‘Seriously? That’s your tactic to get me to like you?’ There will always be rumors, but I know who I am.”

On whether Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon brought a gay sensibility to the Twilight franchise:

“Oh, definitely. I mean, there’s a lot more skin, first of all. It’s for a more mature audience. Our audience has grown up with us, and we have to grow along with them. The original high school fans are in college now, and they want to see more skin. Bill has Taylor Lautner topless all the time, so there’s some great eye-candy. … We have so many cast members in the movie, I wouldn’t be surprised if one of the characters was gay and I just didn’t know it. I’d be all for it.”

On battling his beefcake reputation:

“I love a topless run by the beach, and it does suck when paparazzi is there. It’s like, ‘ do I keep my shirt on because I don’t want to be shirtless in another magazine?’ I don’t want to be known as the guy who always takes his shirt off. … I’ve done a lot of photo shoots lately for the press coming up with Immortals and Breaking Dawn, and every photographer wants to get the topless shot. We’ve really had to be choosy and not do that for every magazine. I’ve actually been trying to keep my clothes on more.”

On his preference in roommates:

“Honestly, I’d prefer to live with gay guys. They’re the cleanest, and they just take care of stuff. Because I’m always away, coming home to a clean house means a lot to me. Trust me, I’ve lived with a lot of roommates, and straight guys are just kids who don’t pick up after themselves.”

On his gay fans:

“Oh, they’re the best. I love them. When I meet gay fans out and about, they’re so great to talk to – and I’m big on hugging, because I’m from the Midwest. They’re just so energetic and loving. I’m proud to have those fans, and their support means a lot to me. I don’t want just girls coming to my movies; I want guys to come too.”

    he’d be “all for” having gay cast members? geez, how lame! I don’t really know anything about this guy, but he’s obviusly into being politically correct. Have no respect for PC types. Get your own brain.

    “I don’t really go after girls, they come after me” ??? You don’t have a big head at all do you? He’s so full of himself it makes him seem like an a$% hole!

    Kellan seemed like such a normal, good dude back before Twilight blew up, but now he just sounds like a bit of a douche. (for lack of a better word) I’m still convinced that Taylor is gay. I just don’t get Hollywood’s thinking that it’s better for them to stay in the closet. It’s crap.

    Who cares what his sexuality is. How does this make him a douche for him stating girls chase him I know a guy in the same situation, where they’re that good looking that they don’t have to worry about chasing girls because the girls chase them.
