Kellan's happy to be single

Kellan Lutz doesn’t feel the need to be in a relationship.

The 29-year-old actor was rumored to be dating Wrecking Ball singer Miley Cyrus earlier this year. But the Twilight actor vehemently denied the accusations and during an interview with British newspaper Metro admitted he is still single.

“I used to need to have someone to take care of,” he said. “I always had a girlfriend, not because I was co-dependent but because I love giving. Now I feel more secure and more able to just take care of myself.”

Kellan has previously dated 90210 co-star AnnaLynne McCord on and off before having a long-term relationship with Australian actress Sharni Vinson. Since that union ended in May last year, Kellan has had time to assess what he is looking for in a girlfriend.

“I’ve learnt a lot about what I want during my years of dating. I live such an active lifestyle, it’s really important for my partner to do the same,” he explained. “I love adventures, not just slobbing on the couch watching TV.”

The American actor had no time for laziness while preparing for one of his most recent roles as Hercules. He will also be starring as Tarzan on the big screen soon, and he had to change his diet to get in shape for both characters.

“I used to have a bag of gummy bears every night before I’d pass out,” he revealed. “But about a year ago I had my blood work done. I’m A+ and I learnt what that means and what’s good for my body. The Paleo diet really helped me with Hercules. The high proteins help with the muscle mass. I was going to be topless for most of the movie so I had to look good.”
