Twilight: Breaking Dawn and Immortals star Kellan Lutz gave an interview, and he’s crazy in love with gay guys. Like, he will only live with a gay guy. And feels that they give the best hugs. Um, is this a coming out interview? I had a straight roomie for six years, and he didn’t go blaring about how living with a homosexual was a beautiful gift. What he discovered is that gay guys can be as lazy and umkempt as straight guys. It was like an Afterschool Special except Helen Hunt didn’t take PCP and bust screaming out of a 2nd story window.
Here’s some memorable quotes from the interview:
Your gay fans will appreciate the sexier vision.
Oh, they’re the best. I love them. When I meet gay fans out and about, they’re so great to talk to — and I’m big on hugging, because I’m from the Midwest. They’re just so energetic and loving. I’m proud to have those fans, and their support means a lot to me. I don’t want just girls coming to my movies; I want guys to come too.
You once told a story on Ellen about a male fan that approached you at a spa while you were naked in a hot tub. You didn’t specify, but I assume he was gay.
Probably, yeah. That’s why I was so flattered. We talked for about 15 minutes, and it clicked that he was probably hitting on me. By no means did I want to lead him on, so it was just kind of funny to me to realize that he was hitting on me — and doing a pretty good job.

Director Bill Condon brought his wonderful gay sensibility to films like Dreamgirls, Kinsey, and Gods and Monsters. Taking over the Twilight saga for its final installments, has he brought a gay sensibility or gay undertones to Breaking Dawn?
Oh, definitely. I mean, there’s a lot more skin, first of all. It’s for a more mature audience. Our audience has grown up with us, and we have to grow along with them. The original high school fans are in college now, and they want to see more skin. Bill has Taylor Lautner topless all the time, so there’s some great eye-candy. Bill did such an amazing job, and it was so much fun to work with him.
You’ve mentioned your roommates in various interviews, and you once told Jimmy Kimmel an anecdote about an unfortunately worded Craigslist ad for new roommates that accidentally attracted a bunch of gay guys. Would a house full of gay roomies really be such a bad thing?
Honestly, I’d prefer to live with gay guys. They’re the cleanest, and they just take care of stuff. Because I’m always away, coming home to a clean house means a lot to me.
Alas, he’s not:
Do you not worry about gay rumors?
I don’t Google myself, but I’ve heard that people think I’m gay. I’ve heard it all. See, I don’t really go after girls. Most of the girlfriends I’ve had have come after me. So it’s really funny when girls get offended because I don’t hit on them. They’ll transform their insecurity into, “Oh, that makes sense, because I heard you’re into guys and have a boyfriend.” I’m like, “Seriously? That’s your tactic to get me to like you?” There will always be rumors, but I know who I am.
Despite me being twatty, apparently he’s just a nice guy. And a hot one. Damn, ancient Greek goodness!
