Kellan Lutz learned guitar from Rob Pattinson, Jackson Rathbone
Robert Pattinson isn't shy about helping out his vampire clan: "The Twilight Saga" actor has been giving musical pointers to costar Kellan Lutz.
Lutz, the brawny Emmett in the vampire franchise, has been playing an instrument that Pattinson knows a thing or two about.
"I picked up the guitar now that I have some down time," Lutz told the Ministry at an in-store appearance Thursday at the Grove, where he unveiled new pieces from his Dylan George and Abbot + Main clothing lines.
"I got a couple of books and some iPad apps, but I get to work with Rob and Jackson [Rathbone] on all these movies, who are brilliant musicians," he said. "I get to learn from talented people."
Pattinson has been strumming and crooning for quite some time, even contributing some music to the first "Twilight" film. Rathbone is in the band 100 Monkeys.
Still, don't hold your breath for "Twilight: The Musical."
"I can't sing for crap," Lutz said, "but I enjoy picking up hobbies."
