Over a year ago, I said that Kellan Lutz, the guy who plays Edward Cullen’s brother, Emmett, in the Twilight movies, gives the most magical interviews. And it’s true, he really, really does. He just has this way about him, and this habit of saying really douchey things in a really sincere way. And I just love that about him.
Here’s the exciting part: he just did a new interview, and now there’s so, so much more to love.
On his inevitable Oscar: “I want to act for the rest of my life. I’ll win an Oscar one day, but I’m in no rush to get there. I don’t care if that takes me 50 years, and I’m old. I just love what I do.”
On his inventions (he’s an inventor): “I actually just flew back home to Arizona to build [my inventions] with this scientist who has a lab there. It was 120 degrees and the air-conditioning was broken and I was working with 400-degree ovens, but just being in the lab station is fun! Especially because you don’t have a teacher saying you can’t do something.”
On chemistry: “I know a lot about chemical reactions, but it’s interesting to see how you mix two chemicals together and heat starts forming. I even made some polyurethane! It’s what bouncy balls are made out of. It’s great because acting has given me the resources and platform to help charities but also the money to create my inventions and pay for the patent process. Attorneys aren’t cheap!”
Oh, ok, honey. Sure thing, Kellan, sweetie. Go play in your little laboratory with your little inventions and your little chemicals. You have fun, sugar. You just have a grand old time until you win that Academy Award.
I love Kellan Lutz.
