Robert Pattinson's 'Breaking Dawn' Muscles: Even Kellan Lutz Is Impressed!

by Christina Garibaldi

Robert Pattinson is known for many things: his perfectly unkempt coif, his smoldering stare and his ability to make every girl swoon. Yet, one thing RPattz hasn’t been particularly well known for is his muscular physique…until recently.

In the "Breaking Dawn" trailer we see Edward Cullen take his new bride Bella on their honeymoon retreat, and it’s there that we get a short glimpse of his bulging back when he BREAKS THE HEADBOARD in a fit of passion. (This moment didn't top our Shirtless Guide to 2011 Cinema for nothin'!)

After seeing the scene, however, some wondered if Rob actually used a body double. Well, we caught up with his "Twilight" co-star Kellan Lutz, who blessedly assured us that it was all Rob.

"Someone asked if that was me. Is that Kellan’s back?" the 26-year-old actor said, laughing at the idea. "I’m really proud of Rob for working out and really training really hard. He cycled so hard and trained very hard, and he’s really diligent. He talked to me about what proteins to drink and what to do and he listened and cared. He had a great mentality for it."

Um, we so can’t wait to see more! But Robert isn’t the only one working hard; Kellan has begun filming his new Indie flick "Syrup" (where we caught up with him on set) alongside Shiloh Fernandez and Amber Heard in New York City, his first film since wrapping "Breaking Dawn." So was it hard for Kellan knowing he wouldn't be returning to the "Twilight" set?

"I love the 'Twilight' movies," Kellan said. "They enabled me to work with the commercial side of the industry and then make great independent movies that I’m proud of like 'Syrup.' It’s not bittersweet; its all sweet. It’s all pro vs. pro. It's great that we shot the last movie of 'Twilight,' 'Breaking Dawn,' but we still have two more years of press, so it’s not over for a while."

Would you like Kellan to be your personal trainer? Are you excited for his post-"Twilight" projects? Tell us in the comments and on Twitter!
