Kellan Lutz, the star of the Twilight films as well as the upcoming film Immortals, is featured on the cover of the new issue of Men’s Fitness magazine. As you can see below, Kellan is lookin’ JACKED THE EFF UP on the cover of Men’s Fitness this month … proudly showing off all of the hard work he’s done to pack on 25lbs. of muscle to play the Greek God Poseidon in Immortals. As a bonus, we also get to check out a behind the scenes video from Kellan‘s magazine photoshoot … and yes, he is shirtless in that video as well. Check it out below.
Most recognize him as a teeny-bopper heartthrob thanks to his turn as a vampire in The Twilight Saga, but Kellan Lutz proved that he’s no preening pansy during our November cover shoot. The 26-year-old, who stars next as the Greek god Poseidon in Immortals, was happy to put his neck on the line and succumb to our bizarre requests in pursuit of the perfect shot, something the photos couldn’t fully capture. Lutz proved again that he was no mere mortal… and managed to be a good sport throughout the gritty process … In a behind-the-scenes video of his Men’s Fitness shoot, the 26-year-old actor says he likes to make up his workouts as he goes along. “I don’t really like the gym. I like to fool my body,” he said, referring to his spontaneous outdoor workout regimes. “I run around the beach and then there’s scaffolding so I can just do different pulls-ups there.” Never wanting to sit still, Kellan says he even exercises on his many flights around the world. Speaking about getting into shape for Immortals, in which he plays Greek god Poseidon alongside co-stars Henry Cavill and Mickey Rourke, he said: “I ate 16 eggs every morning. I got up to 220 pounds of solid muscle. We’d work out every day. Shooting one scene could take all day—and when that’s just driving a Humvee at five miles an hour, we had energy to burn.” He went on: “We were doing push-ups on top of the Humvees. We were throwing wheels and rocks. We were timing each other, betting who can do the most push-ups, just to keep our sanity.”
Holy Moly! Or should I say OH MY GREEK GOD! Kellan looks really, really good in this coverphoto/video. I mean, I say it all the time … he may not be the best actor around but he sure is fun to look at on the big screen. I have *no doubt* that I’ll be seeing Immortals when it opens next month … I mean, yeah I like stories about Geek Gods but … I think I’m more drawn by the gratuitous nekkidness. So sue me ;)
