From Document Journal:
Don’t be fooled by the throngs of hormone-addled Twihards he’s left reeling in his steamy wake, Kellan Lutz has a lot on his mind.
The 27-year-old North Dakota native, best known for his role in the Twilight saga as Emmett Cullen—adopted brother of Robert Pattinson’s Edward—spends his off-screen time rebuilding homes destroyed by Hurricane Katrina and lending his star power to Saving Innocence, a charity that helps restore the shattered lives of sex-trafficking victims.
It’s a serious existence; one that caused him to think twice about taking the Twilight gig. And besides, Lutz was unimpressed.
“I didn’t like the script,” he admitted to Document recently in a bustling Marina del Rey coffee shop, baseball cap pulled snugly over his curly dirty-blond locks in an effort at anonymity.
“How scary would a glimmering vampire really be?” he added, his twinkling blue eyes driving the point home. “It just doesn’t make sense.”
To add to his consternation over taking the part of Emmett, Lutz explained that he had just come off of filming HBO’s heady Iraq War series Generation Kill in poverty-ravaged Africa.
“You’re seeing all of these murals with little girls bleeding, saying, ‘Please don’t rape me. I won’t cure your AIDS’; you see people with no water, people taking baths in dirty rivers,” he said. “That project matured me five years and it really just spoke to my heart.”
