Twilight star Kellan Lutz has been plagued by gay rumors like most other single studs in Hollywood, but the actor says he’s not gay and only insecure girls assume he is.
“I don’t Google myself, but I’ve heard that people think I’m gay… 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,” Kellan, 26, told The Advocate‘s Brandon Voss in a recent interview.
“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.”
However, Kellan expresses no animosity towards the LGBT community and says he loves his gay fans — and even prefers them as roommates!
“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,” Kellan said.
“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. Trust me, I’ve lived with a lot of roommates, and straight guys are just kids who don’t pick up after themselves.”
