'Twilight' Stars Credit 'Awesome Hair' For Winning Teen Choice Awards

Kellan Lutz, Jackson Rathbone joke about reason for movie's overwhelming success with teens.

Even before [movie id="369195"]"Twilight"[/movie] won 11 awards, including Best Drama, at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night (August 9), two of the movie's stars, Kellan Lutz and Jackson Rathbone, had theories about the secret to the film's overwhelming success with teenagers.

"Rob's hair. Jackson's hair," Lutz joked to MTV News at the TCA red carpet. "[The movie studio] Summit's brilliant with casting people with awesome hair and full lips."

Sure, those cats may be easy on the eyes, but Lutz added that the film also has a lot of heart thanks to the star-crossed love story between Bella and Edward in the film. "It's an awesome love story," he said. "Forbidden love, can't go wrong with that."

His co-star Rathbone jokingly added that it doesn't hurt that the love story also involves some hair. But before the show, he couldn't choose which castmates he really wanted to see pick up a surfboard award.

"I got to pull for our brother, Rob, but, I mean, Taylor [Lautner's] a great guy," he said, not knowing at the time that both guys would end up taking home a prize. "We're caught between a lot of our friends, a lot of our friends are nominated so just stay politically correct. So it's the teens' choice, whatever they decide."

Well, guys, it looks like the teens spoke and it seems like they have enough love for all of you.

The Teen Choice Awards show will air on Fox at 8 p.m. on Monday (August 10) night.
