Kellan Lutz Couldn’t Get as Big as Dwayne Johnson for ‘Hercules’

Kellan LutzKellan Lutz jokes he can't match rival Hercules Dwayne Johnson's physique.

The two actors play the Greek hero in separate movies, and the Hercules: The Legend Begins star joked his body could never match up to The Rock's.

"I wanted to get big, but then you have The Rock playing in the other Hercules. There's not enough 'extra-curricular' stuff for that," he told E! News.

The 28-year-old star has still put himself through a tough and ''rigorous'' training regime to getting into top shape for the film: "I wanted to put on weight. Renny [Harlin] the director, he just wanted me cut, so I had to get cut ... For me, it was very rigorous training. I had to learn how to ride a horse while wielding a sword and fighting mercenaries, as well as giving a badass speech and in the rain. And horses don't like the rain. It was very rigorous."

Kellan also revealed while he can't match the Hercules: The Thracian Wars star in terms of his physique, he's been glad to let himself indulge in some sweet treats on set: "If you've ever been on a movie set, there's food all the time. It's hard to stay healthy because I had milk chocolate bars three times a day, and I'd just eat the whole bar."

Cinema Scene: Little Miss Sunshine Heads to Stage, Field of Dreams Up for Sale

Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene-Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz have worked out their salary dispute with Summit Entertainment and will be starring in Breaking Dawn. Apparently they didn’t want to be the next Rachelle LeFevre.

-Jennifer Aniston reportedly asked that her daytime scenes in The Switch be retouched. She gets paid too much to look “rough” like the rest of us.

-I’m never going to be able to get “Super Freak” out of my head now. A musical version of Little Miss Sunshine will debut in February of next year.

-Will a big screen version of Wonder Woman ever get made? If so, TV’s Lynda Carter thinks Sandra Bullock “has in all her characters that needs to be in Wonder Woman.” Well, she’s definitely a fighter.

-If you love baseball, and have a cool $5.4 million lying around, the corn field featured in Field of Dreams could be yours. Neither Kevin Costner nor Ray Liotta is interested.

Blind Side Eclipses New Moon on Thanksgiving

Bella and Edward in New Moon

Despite predicted dominance at the box office this Thanksgiving weekend, Twi-hards seemed to be too busy stuffing their faces with food to keep up with movie-goers set to see Sandra Bullock‘s football drama The Blind Side.

Raking in $9.5 million, The Blind Side rushed ahead (barely) of New Moon, which received $9.2 million—raising its cumulative total to $188.4 million.

Will this keep up the rest of the holiday weekend? While I certainly do not possess Alice Cullen’s psychic abilities, I’ve surmised ten reasons as to why the latest installment of The Twilight Saga could be losing its box office grip.
