The Expendables 3 Set Visit Interview

Posted by admin with No Comments

ComingSoon.net got the chance to visit the set of The Expendables 3. You can read their full report on their website here. Below is the part that mentions Kellan.

[...] When Stallone enters the conference room we’ve assembled in, you can tell he’s exhausted, a trait that he shares with his character Barney Ross in the storyline for The Expendables 3. As the film opens, Barney’s actually considering wrapping it all up, which is why there are so many younger faces in the cast this time around.

“Barney wants to retire them,” Kellan Lutz says about the film’s original crew. “They’re getting old, so he wants to come after some new blood, wants them to think smarter. The younger generation is more tech savy.”

In a coincidentally meta way, Lutz’s comments on how the “new crew” gets connected into the plot of the film similarly reflect the real life reasons that the cast was added to the movie.

“Our stories, by and large, have been pretty much told,” Stallone said. “So now we have to branch out and investigate other people’s lives. You can only have so many times you go to that well and after a while you say, ‘I’m sick of the taste of this water, give me something else.’ Well you bring in a new spring and that’s exactly what’s happening, you have to do it all the time.”

Lutz plays the role of Smilee in the film, the defacto leader of these “Young Expendables,” and a character he says feels a lot like the young version of Stallone’s Barney Ross.

“There’s a scene that Sly and I have that he really gets through to me, when I have such a front on, and he actually speaks the lingo that I need to hear. As much as I throw him back and say F*ck off, he really gets to me and makes sense about what I’m doing with my life.”

Actor Kellan Lutz Becomes a Face of I Can Too – Article & Pics

Posted by admin with No Comments

From Icantoo:

Hollywood Actor Kellan Lutz Becomes a Face of I Can Too in Support of Children with Special Needs. The magnetic actor is the newest supporter of the Foundation.

I Can Too is a small but very ambitious international charity dedicated to supporting children with special needs. The main idea of the organization is that everyone can join to support by whatever he or she can do best. All work of the foundation is based on this principle.

Kellan was so impressed with the story of I Can Too that he decided to promote its mission and to build a long-term commitment to the organization.

I Can Too helps more than 250 children with special needs and their families. The organization began in 2006 by supporting two existing centers in Bulgaria. In 2008, in just five short months and entirely by in-kind donations, it established a rehabilitation center for children with disabilities in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. Following this model of work, I Can Too is establishing a Center for Children with Autism in the city of Plovdiv, Bulgaria with the in-kind support of the local community. The Center is scheduled to open in 2014.

Kellan shows his care for all children by volunteering to have his photo taken wearing an I Can Too Т-shirt. The actor comes from a large family. He has six brothers and a sister. As a member of such a large family, he leaned to share his love and enthusiasm.

“I am so proud to be part of this because of all they have achieved!”, said Kellan during his I Can Too T-shirt photo shoot. Kellan reminds us that being good doesn’t cost anything!

As a young actor Kellan had an impressive career. He worked on “Expendables 3”, which has been filmed in Bulgaria. Les Weldon, the producer and one of the supporters of I Can Too introduced Kellan to I Can Too. Most impressed by the principle of I Can Too that everyone can contribute by whatever he or she can do best, Kellan was motivated to become a supporter of their initiatives.

Kellan Lutz to Wear First Sustainable Tux at Oscars

Posted by admin with No Comments

From The Hollywood Reporter:

The 86th annual Academy Awards is less than two weeks away, and we can hardly wait to see all the gorgeous gowns and dapper tuxedos that will hit the red carpet. For one actor, we already know which custom-designed tux he’ll be wearing on the big night — The Legend of Hercules star Kellan Lutz will wear the first sustainable tux at this year’s Oscars in a design by Suzy Amis Cameron’s eco-fashion campaign, Red Carpet Green Dress.

In October, Ami Cameron (wife of James Cameron) announced the addition of a menswear category to celebrate the campaign’s 5th anniversary. The winning tux was designed by Jomnarn Dul from New Zealand’s iconic menswear brand H Brothers. According to a release, Dul was inspired by will.i.am’s style when working on the design, which is made from recycled content. Dul will also get the opportunity work with American fashion designer and artist Jeff Garner, who will act as her mentor, to help guide her through the actual making of Lutz’s tux.

“I’m honored to have been asked to participate in this milestone year of Red Carpet Green Dress, and I look forward to wearing Dul’s winning design for H Brothers to the Oscars next month,” said the Twilight star in a statement.

Kellan Lutz & more join Greenpeace call for tiger and forest friendly products

Posted by admin with No Comments

From Greenpeace:

Untitled

Thousands of concerned consumers in Indonesia and around the world are joining celebrities such as Joaquin Phoenix, Paul Wesley, Gillian Anderson and Kellan Lutz who are saying enough is enough: do not make me part of the Sumatran tigers’ extinction!

Greenpeace is today launching the Tiger Manifesto: the first part of a global campaign to save the home of the Sumatran tiger and to eliminate dirty palm oil from the products we use.

Palm oil, an ingredient found in almost half of supermarket products, is the largest driver of deforestation in Indonesia. In October last year, we revealed that the vast majority of forest cleared in oil palm plantations in Sumatra during 2009–2011 was tiger habitat.

Forests do not need to be destroyed to grow palm oil, but the makers of every day products are making us a part of this destruction because they indiscriminately buy dirty palm oil.

Join the movement demanding forest and tiger-friendly products.

Kellan for Men’s Health UK Magazine – Article & Pics

Posted by admin with No Comments

From DailyMail:

The 28-year-old star said that his body transformation began in the Twilight saga, when he used the gym to escape from the attention he received during filming.

He said: ‘I was bored. They put us in these mall apartment complexes – the fans and paparazzi were outside the whole time. So I bunkered down in the gym; it was my escape.’

Being a vampire also meant going on a careful, calorie-controlled diet. ‘For Immortals, we all had dieticians: every hour they’d hand you eight almonds or a plate of spinach,’ he reveals.

He also explains he has a tactic of playing ignorant when he doesn’t like the menu.

‘Just ask if they have salmon and avocado and it they mind throwing together a salad for you. It’s being deliberately ignorant, but it works,’ he jokes.

And filming his latest role as Hercules, which involved swinging a 4kg sword, has put him in even better shape.

The film sees Hercules destined to fight his evil father King Amphitryon (Scott Adkins) who grows mad with power, conquering city-states and waging war.

‘Staying upright on a horse is hard on your abs, and swinging a sword really hits your core as well as your arms,’ Kellan reveals.

Kellan Lutz is obsessed with inventions

Posted by admin with No Comments

From azcentral.com:


‘The Legend of Hercules’ hunk is obsessed with TV show ‘Shark Tank’ – where entrepreneurs pitch business ideas to a panel of potential investors – because he loves seeing people’s creations as he says he has several of his own in the pipeline.

He said: ”I love [TV show] ‘Shark Tank’, I watch that religiously. I’m obsessed with inventions and this year I have a few patents coming out. You’ll see!”

The 28-year-old actor – who has recently been romantically linked to Miley Cyrus – prefers doing active sports to spending time working out in the gym to stay in shape.

He added: ”I don’t go to the gym that much. I find more fun ways to work out: Playing basketball, playing volleyball and snowboarding.”

Kellan is also a fan of literature and is a particular fan of Francine Rivers’ ‘Redeeming Love’ because he related to the subject matter.

He explained to America’s OK! magazine: ”This is an amazing book. God tells a man to marry a prostitute, and he goes after her, and she doesn’t feel worthy. I’ve been with women who don’t feel their self-worth, and all you want to do is save them.”
