NEW Edward Eclipse Promotional Picture


Rob on Oprah

Oprah Winfrey revealed on Friday that the stars of "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" will be coming to Chicago next month to tape an episode of her show. The announcement came at the end of her interview with "Twilight" actress Dakota Fanning, via skype.

"Dakota, we'll see you in Chicago on Thursday, May 13," Winfrey said. "We'll have all the other big 'Twilight' stars right here too. Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner all will be here. Tune in for a 'Twilight' show."

"Eclipse," the third film in the "Twilight" franchise, hits theaters June 30. The previous film, "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" pulled in $140.7 million during its opening weekend last November.

Kellan in the MTV “must-see list” at Tribeca Film Festival

These days, it feels like every major city — and more than a few minor ones — has its own film festival. But few can approach the credibility, level of quality and star-studded pleasure of the annual Tribeca Film Festival, which once again kicks off in the heart of New York City this week. When we recently sat down for an interview with co-founder Robert De Niro, he was as excited for the new crop of films as we are.
“I’m very happy that we’ve managed to make it work and it be a success, and I’m very happy,” explained the Oscar-winning screen legend. “I hope it goes down for a long time — a lot longer than I’m around. That would be great. [I hope it becomes] part of a real tradition of New York and part of the fabric of New York.”
With that in mind, and as the fest kicks off, we’ve combed over our TFF guide and humbly present this list of the five films we’re most eager to see:
“Meskada”: For “Twilight” fans, three words explain why this movie is in such great demand: Shirtless. Kellan. Lutz. The crime drama follows an affluent town dealing with the brutal murder of a young boy, co-stars Nick Stahl and Rachel Nichols and is sure to elicit an “OME!” or two.

Kellan Shirtless in Meskada

The Tribeca Film Festival is just days away now and New Yorkers are starting to prepare for their city’s annual celebration of film. There are some big names this year, starting with “Shrek Forever After,” the (supposed) final chapter in the series, which opens the fest this year.
Today I’m here to showcase “Meskada,” a thriller from writer/director Josh Sternfeld starring Nick Stahl, Rachel Nichols and “Twilight” star Kellan Lutz. The story follows a small-town detective investigating the death of a young child, killed during a home robbery. Not that you get a sense of that here; what you do get a sense of is Lutz, shirtless. Enjoy, ladies.

Kellan in the VMAN Magazine

Kellan Lutz is dubbed one of Hollywood’s five hottest men in VMAN’s upcoming issue #18, on stands April 20th. (He of course is wearing a Calvin Klein jacket.)
The 25-year-old actor is currently in negotiations to star in an indie action movie called Deathgames opposite Samuel L. Jackson.
THR reports, “The story centers on a young man (Lutz) who is kidnapped and forced into the savage world of a modern gladiator arena, where men fight to the death for entertainment of the online masses. Jackson orchestrates the games, overseeing them from his computer lair with the help of twin ladies who see to his every desire.”
Production begins next month in Louisiana. Next week, Kellan will be there to shoot the romantic comedy Keep It Together opposite Mandy Moore.

Samuel L. Jackson, Kellan Lutz eyeing ‘Deathgames’

Samuel L. Jackson and Kellan Lutz are in negotiations to star in “Deathgames,” an indie action movie from Motion Picture Corporation of America.

Kellan for Interview Magazine

Actor, action-movie star, farmhand, Calvin Klein underwear model, and nascent motivational speaker, Kellan Lutz is the man of the moment. The determined 25-year-old Lutz has made a name for himself with roles as a cocky, good-looking jock with rich parents on CW’s 90210, a soldier stationed in Iraq in HBO’s Generation Kill (2008), and a vampire in the Twilight series—a trifecta of mainstream masculinity. He is a superhero-in-waiting, unbothered by an unbuttoned shirt, and thirsty for a franchise phenomenon of his own.
Born in North Dakota and raised in Arizona with frequent visits to the family farm in Iowa, Lutz has a backstory that is authentically rugged and thoroughly American—a Bruce Weber–esque narrative that became an actual Bruce Weber narrative in 2004 when Lutz appeared, photographed by Weber, on the cover of the A&F Quarterly magazine. But it’s Hollywood time now, and Lutz is hard at work. There’s this month’s A Nightmare on Elm Street remake; a turn as a hotheaded lacrosse player opposite fellow Twilight-er Ashley Greene in Warrior; the independent murder mystery Meskada with Nick Stahl and Grace Gummer; and then, most importantly, more Twilight (the third installment, Eclipse, is out in June). Lutz believes in paying it forward and the laws of attraction. Even stray pups follow him home.

MARK JACOBS: Hi, Kellan? Where are you right now?
KELLAN LUTZ: I am in my backyard in L.A. hanging out with my two dogs.
JACOBS: Who are your dogs?
LUTZ: Kola is a shepherd-husky mix I adopted from the Compton animal shelter. Kevin is the newest, most adorable member of our family. He’s a Chihuahua. I found him on the street when I came back from one of my trips.
JACOBS: You spent time on a dairy farm in Iowa while you were growing up?
LUTZ: Iowa is where the big farm was, where my grandparents lived. After my parents divorced, we would visit them. My mom would send me out to the pigpen, where we had these huge, huge pigs. I would stand there for six hours holding a hose, watering pigs. They’d dive in the mud and shake it off, and I’d go home covered in it. I loved the whole thing of getting wet and dirty and then getting in a warm bath.
JACOBS: You also have experience spraying crops and building silos. Are you aware of how this story reads in New York and L.A.? Anything involving uncontrived hard labor is irresistible to the style industry.
LUTZ: I’d rather do manual labor than sit behind a desk. And as my grandparents got older, I’d fly out there and help out around the farm. We’d tear barns down; we’d build barns. I’d rather be outside rolling hay or driving the tractors.
JACOBS: Then how did you choose Hollywood?
LUTZ: I have a lot of older brothers who messed up in different ways in my mother’s eyes. So I learned from all of their mistakes. I can’t go into detail, but while I was growing up, I always tried to make it a goal to relieve some of the stress my mother went through. I applied myself to school very diligently. I wanted to go out of state so I wouldn’t have to depend on my mother. And L.A., where my father lived, seemed to call to me.
JACOBS: Why acting?
LUTZ: In L.A., I was meeting people who were all actors. My mind started to open up to what acting was. I didn’t realize that Brad Pitt was a real person. I didn’t think he was a robot or a machine, but I thought you were just born into acting—that it’s a family tree, kind of like NASCAR. No one can just say, “Hey, I’m going to be a
NASCAR driver.” They need to have some way in. Once I was in L.A., I realized anyone could do this. Why not give it a shot? I started going to a ton of acting classes, and I found I had a real passion for it, probably the biggest passion I’ve ever had in my whole life. So I decided to put school aside, put all my scholarships aside, put everything that I worked hard on for my mother and myself aside, and pursue this roller-coaster ride.
JACOBS: How old were you when you got the -Abercrombie & Fitch cover?
LUTZ: Eighteen. I was actually working in L.A. at an Abercrombie to make friends. I had no friends.
JACOBS: On the sales floor?
LUTZ: I was selling clothes. But I believe my personality helped, because I was the worst folder. I just couldn’t care to do it. I felt like I had ADD. I would just goof around and shoot rubber bands everywhere. Somehow the manager didn’t fire me, and I became a greeter, when you have to stand outside, you know, topless, and kind of finagle people into the store. Then Abercrombie had an audition, and my agency sent me out. I met Bruce Weber, and they chose me. I wasn’t the strongest, most fit, best-looking guy on that shoot, but somehow Bruce put me on the cover. I was just lying on the grass playing with this beetle, and they used that shot. I was still working at the store when the magazine came out two months later. I was just very lucky, and that opened up doors to acting.
JACOBS: Unlike some actors, you don’t seem to have a need to distance yourself from modeling.
LUTZ: It’s weird that the world sees modeling as a negative. It just blows my mind how many people think that because I was a model, I think I’m pretty and that I can use my looks to get ahead. I’m not pretty!
JACOBS: You really don’t think you’re pretty?
LUTZ: It’s funny when people say you have sex appeal or call you the next Brad Pitt. I just laugh. I’m not that. I don’t want to be that. “You’re a sex icon.” Why? Because I played a vampire in a movie? It’s all very unearned. If I had the best freaking abs in the world or if I looked like Brad Pitt does in Fight Club [1999], then cool, but I’m not starving myself. I eat what I want, and I’m not a workout fiend. My genetics are good, but they aren’t crazy He-Man style. I don’t get it, but I appreciate it. [laughs]
JACOBS: And sometimes you just like to go on a shirtless run with your dog, and people need to deal with it.
LUTZ: I don’t see why it’s special. I know a lot of people who run shirtless because they don’t want their clothes to get sweaty. I’m just a normal person. And I have four paparazzi who sit outside my house all day.
JACOBS: Your humility is charming, but do you ever look at other guys going up for a role and think, “I can destroy you with my good looks”?
LUTZ: I love competition. I thrive on it. I love being able to win the room over before even walking through the door. When I was going out for Twilight, I was a big guy, especially after Generation Kill. I was close to 200 pounds and just all muscle. The character description was a big, bulky fighter, a wrestler, a bear of a guy with a smile. I walked in the waiting room and I noticed nine other actors, and half of them were trying to do push-ups, and half of them were trying to be all tough. I chuckled to myself. I’m very perceptive. I love seeing guys out of the corner of my eye be like, “Great.” Because they see a guy walking in who totally looks the role. It’s funny. I don’t try to be cocky, but I’m just very confident because I know I did all of my homework. I also really love, love
JACOBS: So you have four very different films coming up.
LUTZ: I’ve had a great run with great projects. Especially the new ones. I love this industry. It keeps you young; it really does.
JACOBS: You’re pretty young.
LUTZ: I’ll always see myself as young at heart. I mean, I’m 25, and some people see that as getting up there.
JACOBS: Who’s telling you you’re getting up there?
LUTZ: People are saying that you can’t play high school anymore and I’m like, “Thank god.” I want to be the Jason Bourne type. I don’t want to play high school.
JACOBS: You’re unapologetic about wanting to be an action star.
LUTZ: It’s all about goals. If you just take whatever comes to you, then you’re not going to get anywhere. The more you say it around town or in meetings, it starts happening. That’s what’s going on right now. People are seeing me as the guy who wants to get hurt, who wants to break a bone, get bruises. And that’s how it was growing up with six brothers. I got beat up, and I beat up people. I have no real tattoos. I wear my bruises and tons of scars as my -tattoos. And I’ve grown up loving action movies. I’d love to work with Sylvester Stallone, and I almost had the chance to in The Expendables [out August 2010], but that didn’t work out because of scheduling. I’d love to work with him and Mickey Rourke, Matt Damon, Daniel Craig, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Jean-Claude Van Damme. . . . Bloodsport [1988] was one of my favorite movies. I feel like there’s only so many roles out there and such a surplus of actors that if you don’t have a goal, you just get lost.
JACOBS: You’ve covered your bases. You even did a Hilary Duff video [“With Love”].
LUTZ: My agent and my girlfriend at the time both wanted me to go out for the audition. There’s a quote, I think it’s Wayne Gretzky, that says you miss 100 percent of the shots you never take. That’s so true. That’s why I love going out for any audition. I’m very professional, I study my stuff, I work on it, and even if I’m not right for the job, so what? I know I did my best.
JACOBS: You keep getting roles because you’re a talented actor and you’re dedicated to what you do.
LUTZ: I’ve got a lot to learn, and I’m very blessed to work with such talented actors. I’m nowhere near my goal. It’s all about applying yourself and taking time to work and train. I want to be doing this until the day I die. I want to be in movies and working with people who push me to be a better actor. That’s what I look forward to, and that’s what’s important to me. I just want to test out all that Kellan is and push him to the limits and create new Kellans.

, love doing character pieces. I love wearing wigs to auditions, even though sometimes they don’t work. I love trying to play the not-confident guy, the guy against my normal character, because that’s when real acting comes into play.

MTV: Kellan Lutz Joins ‘War Of The Gods’

“Twilight” actor Kellan Lutz is the newest recruit in “War of the Gods,” the upcoming Greek mythology epic from director Tarsem Singh (“The Fall”).
Lutz has earned the role of Poseidon, the Greek god that rules over the seas, according to Variety. He joins an impressive cast list that includes Henry Cavill (“The Tudors”) as the heroic Theseus, Mickey Rourke (“Iron Man 2″) as the ruthless King Hyperion and Freida Pinto (“Slumdog Millionaire”) as Phaedra, an oracle priestess.
“War of the Gods” is a swords-and-sandals epic centered on mortal soldiers caught in a war between the eternal Greek gods and the evil Titans, with the fate of mankind hanging in the balance. Production is scheduled to begin in April based on a screenplay written by Jason Keller.

is no stranger to fantasy fare, thanks to his beloved “Twilight” role of Emmett Cullen, one of the many foster siblings of Robert Pattinson’s character. The actor was also a reported leading contender for the title role in director Marcus Nispel’s “Conan,” though he ultimately lost the part to Jason Momoa (“Stargate: Atlantis”). Lutz will next be seen in the upcoming “Nightmare on Elm Street” revival.
“War of the Gods” is the latest in a string of movies dealing with Greek mythology. Director Chris Columbus’ “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief” debuted in February to positive reviews and solid box-office success, while Louis Leterrier’s “Clash of the Titans” remake will land in both regular and 3-D theaters on April 2.

Rob in Hungary’s Cosmopolitan


Vampire hunt in Budapest!

On March 27th, Robert Pattinson arrived in Budapest with the Bel Ami film crew. Of course Cosmo didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity to see him. We tried to discover how the 23 year-old actor was able to become so famous in such a short amount of time.

The Price of Close Proximity

It’s 11am on a Tuesday. From a Hungarian Pattinson fansite, I was able to find out the super-secret information that is today’s location. It is staggering how well-informed the site’s administrators are: they knew in advance when Rob would be arriving to Hungary as if they were a secret agency. They’re like spies: they have people at the airport, the hotels and even in the crew.

Szabadság Tér (Freedom Square) is full of starry-eyed girls clutching their cameras and their Twilight books. Everyone’s staring fixedly at an entryway next to an Italian restaurant: it seems like filming is taking place behind the gate covered by a black curtain. I can’t see much from the other side of the road, so I decide to head to the terrace to see if I can sit down at a table. A moody waiter and a guard in a neon jacket blocks my path: “Paying customers only, no gawking.” Thanks for the polite greeting, buddy! A girl calls me over: she says it’s worth ordering something because she was able to watch them filming from a meter away as she was seated at the table closest to the entryway. She recounts all the rules: if you only buy a drink, you can also sit at the farthest tables, if your order is under 2000Ft (note: that’s about 10 dollars) you get seated in the middle, but if you order a hefty lunch (and leave them half your monthly salary in exchange for an entire ox and a bathtub’s worth of gazpacho) you will be able to see Pattinson from very close up. I am not quite determined enough for this, so I head back into the crowd.

Is he really so handsome?

I haven’t even taken my first step when the curtain opens and... a make-up artist comes out. Everyone’s holding their breath. Out comes a girl with short hair who seems like an assistant. Then body guards. And finally... Rob appears. White collar, slicked down hair, a small grin and downcast eyes. No one screams, not one camera click can be heard, it’s as if the Earth itself has stopped (or just the girls’ hearts?). We get a few seconds, then he’s already in his trailer. The vision is over, the fans are trying to catch their breath. Even I feel a little strange after seeing this famous actor with my own eyes. There is no doubt that Robert is just as handsome in real life as he is on film where they always make sure the lighting is perfect, or on photos where everything gets retouched for days.

The curtain opens once again after 30 seconds and he exits again. How is this possible. Cameras are clicking wildly, then we realize that this isn’t Robert after all. But he looks very similar to him - I later find out that he is the Hungarian double, whose name is Szabolcs Eszes. “I would settle for him too,” sighs a girl next to me, who with her checkered blouse, ripped jeans and leather bag looks like a Kristen Stewart wannabe. “But he looks more like Edward from Twilight, rather than the way Robert normally looks,” she notes critically, then turns to me, “Did you get a good picture of him?” Let’s see: a waiter’s back, a theater poster, my new shoes - I’m clearly not the best photographer. When I get to the photo where half of Rob’s face and a few locks of his hair are visible, the girl’s face lights up. “I want to talk to him so badly,” she sighs weakly. She tells me they watched him filming on Andrássy Avenue yesterday. “It was so windy, and the street was full of sand that ended up in our eyes. Everyone thought we were crying,” she laughs.

Is he really a gentleman?

A blonde girl aged about 20 runs towards us, buries her face in the Kristen wannabe’s neck, then starts to jump around as the words rush out of her mouth: “I saw him yesterday in McDonald’s! He was alone, without any bodyguards, me and my sister almost had a heart attack! He just went to the counter, ordered a double cheeseburger then rushed out immediately. He was so sweet: he smiled shyly at us, ran his fingers through his hair and made a face like we had caught him doing something bad.” The fans eavesdropping behind us turn around: they saw him at Oktogon, he was sipping his drink quietly in a garden, as if he was a normal guy from around the block. And what surprised me the most was that the girls didn’t even think about rushing over to him, they just looked at him from their balcony. They never scream either, because they respect their idol. “We know that this is his job. He has to stay in character, he has to concentrate all day, so if he comes out of his trailer we don’t go crazy because we don’t want to disturb him,” says a girl with a serious expression, wearing a Kings of Leon t-shirt. She travelled to Budapest from the countryside to see him. She says she liked Edward at first and it was because of Twilight that she started to learn English in order to be able to read the books in their original format, but she thinks that after the vampire, Rob is the hottest guy on the planet.

Is he really so modest?

Pattinson shows up again, gets in a black car and is driven away right in front of us. He’s going to lunch. His head isn’t full of his ego, he doesn’t wave like a campaigning politician. He’s more like a shy young man who doesn’t believe he deserves all this love and attention. He is very nice to the girls and is willing to take photos with them: a few were able to catch him at the airport while others saw him out and about in the city. “He was so nice and down-to-earth with us, he even had a conversation with us,” says a girl carrying a laptop case, continually loading all her photos onto the internet. “He doesn’t act like an unreachable movie star. He’s a very normal, very relaxed guy! I wish the men in my office were like him too,” she sighs, smiling.

The black car arrives a few minutes later and the shoot continues. This wasn’t what I expected: I thought I would spend my day among screaming fans and a heavily made-up wannabe actor. I’m not saying that I have now become a real RPattz fanatic, but I have a much clearer view of what is behind all this craziness. An incredibly good looking and very well-mannered guy, who was lucky enough to get the role of Edward Cullen, one of the most romantic characters in recent movie history. I discovered here in Budapest that even without that, he is sexy and interesting. And the end of the day’s shoot, he turns to his fans and to much of our surprise, starts to speak in Hungarian: “Koszonom hogy csendben voltatok” (thanks for being quiet) to which the screams that have been swallowed back for hours finally erupt.

Blue bubble in the middle:

Where did R. P. go?

1. One morning he was seen walking around in Buda Castle with his bodyguards. We would give him a crown if it would mean he would stay longer!

2. Even in sunglasses and a hoodie we were still able to recognize him buying fancy souvenirs in a shop in Váci street - let’s hope those gifts weren’t intended for Kristen!

3. During the weekend he had dinner at a restaurant in Liszt Ferenc square, then disappeared inside one of the pubs there.

4. He went back to Andrássy Avenue several times even after they were done filming there. Maybe he’s thinking of getting an apartment there? [personal note: pffft yeah right]
