Kellan Lutz may be nearly done with "Twilight" -- the final installment, "Breaking Dawn - Part 2," hits theaters next month -- but his career is far from over.
"I want to act for the rest of my life," the 27-year-old tells DuJour magazine. "I'll win an Oscar one day, but I'm in no rush to get there. I don't care if that takes me 50 years, and I'm old. I just love what I do."
If the acting jobs dry up, though, the self-proclaimed science nerd has a solid plan B: chemical engineering.
Calling chemistry his "biggest passion in life," Lutz reveals that he has two top-secret patent-pending inventions in the works. In fact, he recently flew to Arizona (where his mom and several siblings live) to build his inventions with a scientist there.
"It's great because acting has given me the resources and platform to help charities but also the money to create my inventions and pay for the patent process," he explains. "Attorneys aren't cheap!"
Fortunately, the star still has a few paydays in his future. Lutz has several films set to be released in the next year or so, including "Tarzan," a remake of the 1932 movie "Tarzan the Ape Man." But first, he'll bid farewell to the "Twilight Saga" -- the franchise that gave him his big break.
"It really is bittersweet," the Breaking Dawn actor says. "It's very much like high school ... and I'm ready to graduate."
That said, he's looking forward to celebrating the release of the film with his family, friends, and co-stars.
"This is such a special moment in my life," Lutz adds. "I really just want to experience it with the people who mean the most to me."
