Twilight star Kellan Lutz has enough sex appeal to sustain him in Hollywood for a while, but it’s his true talents that light up the screen and give him goals that far surpass the vampire saga. 

Blonde-haired, blue-eyed and bulky-biceped Kellan Lutz is loving life right now as a member of one of the hottest Hollywood casts to ever hit the big screen. The 25-year-old actor/model was an instant hit with the Twilight series fans, making an impact even with the small number of lines and quick glimpses of his character, Emmett Cullen, that were seen in the first couple movies. But all the pasty white vampire makeup in the world couldn’t hide the real talent Lutz possesses, though he claims this is never a position he looked to be in. 

“Modeling and acting is one of the biggest blessings that has ever entered my life,” Lutz says. “I really fell into modeling when I was in high school when a buddy of mine was photographed for Dillard’s and he was in the local newspaper and we made fun of him. And then his comeback was, ‘I made $500 for that photo shoot.’ To us kids in high school in Arizona that’s a lot of money so I asked how he got involved and he walked me through the steps of getting an agent. So I started modeling. And I liked it. I really liked being in front of the camera. It was this new world that I never really knew existed.” 

Once Lutz figured out he had a good thing going, he was able to capitalize on the opportunity even further A but not without experiencing some resistance from his family first. He explains it as his parents having “a fear of the unknown,” as parents are typically known for when the idea of a college degree has the potential to get thrown out the window. But he went for it and rationalizes, “It was never a dream for me, which is kind of helpful because it’s not a limitation. I don’t have a ceiling saying, ‘Oh, I haven’t made it yet, I’m a failure’ – because everything I do, it’s like, this is awesome! I was on my own for a little bit and there were hard times, but then my parents saw that I wasn’t getting into dirtiness or, to be honest, pornography. I think that was the biggest fear And I didn’t want a plan B because if you have a plan B than that means you’re allowing plan A to potentially fail.”

Anna Kendrick in video for LCD Soundsystems's Pow Pow

The video for LCD Soundsystem's heady, sultry "Pow Pow" which premieres on at 5 p.m. ET on Thursday (November 4), has all the makings of a cinematic epic, including an Oscar-nominated actress brightening up the screen and a Hollywood vet running things behind the camera.

"Up in the Air" starlet Anna Kendrick vamps it up as the video's mysterious protagonist, and she's surrounded by a crush of beefy bodyguards. Director David Ayer conceded that the concept is a bit cerebral.

"This video's a little far out, a little esoteric," Ayer told MTV News. "In this world, Anna's sort of this shape-shifter, I guess you could say."

Ayer further explained that the message of the clip, which is a joint effort between MTV and Mean magazine, is about remaining humble, regardless of how pumped-up one's celebrity status might get.

"No matter how big you are, how important you are in this temporal world of ours, there's somebody more important," he said. "You have to answer for your sins, and that's a little bit of what this video is about. And the person who sort of represents the power in this video isn't, like, some hardcore gangster guy, but little old Anna Kendrick kinda being her shy self."

Ayer was looking for a super-chill, accessible star for the video, and he found one in Kendrick.

"She is, like, down to earth, salt of the earth and just a rock star," Ayer gushed. "As far as her talent and her abilities, she's the real deal."

Ayer is something of a Hollywood rock star himself, with screenplays for flicks such as "Training Day" and "The Fast and the Furious" under his belt. And he was amped to be a part of the project.

"I feel pretty honored that [LCD Soundsystem is] allowing me to kind of take this wonderful song of theirs — kind of a flagship song, I think — and marry it to some great images," he said.

Anna Kendrick goes by many monikers: "Twilight" star, Oscar-nominated actress, red carpet stunner, and now she can add one more: video vixen. Anna teamed with "Training Day" writer David Ayer for the new "Supervideo," which utilizes LCD Soundsystem's song "Pow Wow" as the narrative inspiration.

Anna plays a mysterious woman who, along with her entourage of lawyers and bodyguards, travels through the underworld of L.A. to capture the souls of notorious villains. However, Anna isn't quite what she appears to be. (Perhaps there are some supernatural powers involved...just sayin')

Article on Kristen Stewart from with new pics

To some, Kristen Stewart is simply “the ‘Twilight’ girl.” Her arresting turn as love-struck teen Bella Swan in the swoony series of vampire romance blockbusters put her on the map and earned her the mantle of “movie star.”

And for many young actors, this would have represented the chance to cash in, to do a whole bunch of well-paying wannabe hits with various supernatural love interests. Stewart, on the other hand, prefers the more challenging route: offbeat indies, parts that speak to her in a genuine way, and the occasional portrayal of an icon (like, say, Joan Jett). She only hopes that those who want to see her as nothing more than Bella will give her a chance.

“There’s a road I’m going down now, and I’m aware that there’s not as much of an audience for strange movies—for different, eclectic movies—and I totally accept that,” she says. “But at the same time, if I do films like that, I want people to take it for what it is instead of going, ‘Oh, let’s see the ‘Twilight’ girl try to do this.’?”

Stewart says she is deeply grateful for all the opportunities the runaway vampire franchise has sent her way, but she has made sure the personas she has taken on since have not been terribly Bella-like. Take her nuanced performance in the recent indie sensation “Welcome to the Rileys.” As foul-mouthed teen runaway/stripper Mallory, Stewart is raw and real, a believably bruised troublemaker, and she more than holds her own opposite co-stars James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo. “I’m really glad that it took the time that it did to get made, because I think by the time I was 18, I was ready and more confident and mature enough to play the part,” says the actor, now 20. “I had read the script when I was 16, and I was just too young. I would’ve shied away from stuff, I think.”

“Rileys” director Jake Scott first took note of Stewart in Sean Penn’s “Into the Wild.” Her screen time is limited, but she made it her own. “I went for a drink with Sean Penn, and he said, ‘Check this kid out,’?” recalls Scott. “She didn’t do very much in that film, but she just had this quality that I’d always imagined Mallory would have—I always say ‘vulpine.’ Kind of feral, a bit of an alley cat. That really is strong in her, even though she’s come from a very happy, loving background. It’s interesting; maybe that’s why she can play such damaged characters, such complex characters.”
