New Moon star Kellan Lutz flaunts his rippling six-pack abs in a sexy ad campaign for Calvin Klein‘s X underwear line.
The ad officially launches March 1, with Lutz posing shirtless wearing nothing more than a pair of skimpy underwear and a mischievous smile.
The athletic 6’1″ Kellan, who was once a model for Abercrombie & Fitch, works out and diets daily to play the hulking vampire Emmett Cullen in Twilight and New Moon.
In addition to lifting weights, Kellan does lots of isometric exercises, such as push-ups and crunches, and swims as often as possible.
I’M NOT PERFECT’
How does Lutz feel about his good looks? “I don’t see myself as perfect,” he says.
Adds Kellan: “I never will be and I never want to be. I’m not the good-looking guy with the nice hair like Rob Pattinson. I enjoy being not so pretty.”
KELLAN ♥ CANDY
Lutz, who follows a high-protein, low-carb diet, has a major weakness for sweets. “Candy–I just need sugar all the time,” he says.
But Kellan insists indulging his sweet tooth every day helps him stave off cravings for fatty foods. “I swear, candy helps,” he said. “It helps fight the hunger of higher-calorie foods, but it’s bad for the teeth.”
TAYLOR LAUTNER WOOED BY ARMANI
Meanwhile, Lutz’ adorable co-star Taylor Lautner is being considered to become the new face of Giorgio Armani menswear.
Like Kellan, Lautner, 17, hit the gym 5-7 days a week and exercised and ate nonstop to achieve the sleek, muscular physique required for his Jacob Black character.
Lutz’ career is on a roll, thanks to the mega-success of the Twilight saga.
He just signed on to star in a romantic comedy called Love, Wedding and Marriage opposite Mandy Moore. Production for the film begins in New Orleans this month.
Meanwhile, New Moon continues to flex its box-office muscles. The vampire romance has grossed over $704 million since its Nov. 20 release.
New Moon, which co-stars Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed and Kristen Stewart, is in theaters now.
