As the last installment of the Twilight franchise comes to an end – Kellan Lutz says it’s like being in high school. The 27-year-old actor talks to Dujour magazine about the movie, his family, and the new inventions he’s working on.
On the ending of the Twilight series: “It really is bittersweet. It’s very much like high school, and I’m ready to graduate.”
On his family’s farm in Iowa: “I’m very blessed to have my grandparents’ farm. I just decompress and put my phone away and ride the tractor. We have pigs—big ones. I water them, and they shake mud all over me! I love it.”
On acting: “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: “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. 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!”
