'Twilight' Actor Kellan Lutz Thinks He's Gonna Win an Oscar

kellan lutzKellan Lutz needs to keep dreaming -- and I mean that both in the snarky way and the literal way. The Twilight star sat down with Du Jour magazine to, I suppose, talk about the topics du jour, and mentioned to the publication that he's really into chemistry (he's got two top-secret scientific patents pending!) and that he really loves acting. Like, really loves acting. Not only does he love acting so much, but he also thinks he's really, really good at it. In fact, he said, and I quote, "I'll win an Oscar one day, but I'm in no rush to get there. I don't care if that takes me 50 years, and I'm old. I just love what I do."

Ummmm.

I hope he's not holding out for any Twilight accolades, or expecting any recognition from the Academy for his upcoming role in Tarzan.

But hey, sure, it'd be swell if the guy gets his chance at winning Oscar gold. Maybe he's got the talent and is just waiting for the right role to come along to show the world what he's got. Who knows -- he could be the next Joaquin Phoenix. Wait. Joaquin doesn't believe in the Oscars, so never mind. Maybe Kellan is the next Sean Penn or Robert De Niro or, hell, even Leonardo DiCaprio. Maybe he's going to star in some movie based on a Dennis Lehane book any day now, and blow our minds.

But in the meantime, keep dreaming, Kellan -- that Oscar could, indeed, be yours sometime in the far off future. But, just one thing. When you get on stage to accept the statue, would you mind taking off your shirt? Because really, your abs are possibly the only thing award-worthy.

Do you think Kellan will actually win an Oscar, as he's promised?
