Kellan Lutz rose to prominence in the early 2000s after landing roles in TV shows such as Model Citizens, The Comeback, and Six Feet Under. He also appeared in several music videos, including Hinder’s video for “Without You.” However, it wasn’t until 2008 that Lutz landed his big break as Emmett Cullen in the movie Twilight. The film became a breakout hit, and Lutz appeared in its sequels.

Lutz forged several lasting connections while working on Twilight. And as he revealed to his former co-star Ashley Greene on her podcast, The Twilight Effect, he even developed a bit of a crush on her. 

However, as reported by BuzzFeed, Lutz admitted, “I remember, she quickly became, like, one of the guys. Beautiful, but also, like, just so easy to get along with my group of friends. And then they’d always try and date her or something like that.” Greene added, “I think we like pretty quickly moved to the friend space, for sure, which was great.”

Emmett Cullen quickly became a fan favorite, thanks in part to Lutz’s natural charm. In the films, Emmett is the adopted son of Carlisle and Esme Cullen, a fun-loving character who doesn’t shy away from confrontation. Emmett and Bella Swan develop a natural rapport, and he is one of the first to vote in favor of Bella becoming a vampire.

Lutz went on to act in several other projects after Twilight, including movies like Immortals, Arena, and What Men Want. While his crush on Greene didn’t go anywhere, he did go on to find love. In 2017, Lutz and model Brittany Gonzales tied the knot. They welcomed their first child in February 2021, a baby girl named Ashtyn Lilly Lutz. One year later, in February 2022, the couple took to Instagram to share that they were expecting another baby. According to Page Six, Lutz shared the video of his wife’s pregnancy reveal, writing, “God is Good! Babies are the Best! Love you forever and always @brittanylynnlutz.”
