Showing off his abs in some shoots for Interview magazine, the 'Twilight' hunk does not understand why people consider him a sex icon.
Kellan Lutz has been featured in some sexy shoots for Interview magazine. In a couple of pictures, the actor is seen taking off his shirt and getting wet. While his poses which expose his abdomen muscles will tease ladies, he claims he is not sexy.
"It's funny when people say you have sex appeal or call you the next Brad Pitt. I just laugh," he says in an interview with the magazine. "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 ['Twilight']? 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' , 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]"
"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," Kellan further shares, before insisting. "I'm not pretty!"
