Kellan Lutz’s Calvin Klein ads: hot or creepy?


Here is Kellan Lutz’s new ad for Calvin Klein underwear. Sigh. Am I the only one totally turned off by Kellan Lutz? He’s all over the place these days, just because of his part in the Twilight series and 90210, I guess. That, and the guy seems to go out to for the opening of an envelope. Seriously, the photo agencies are flooded with images of this guy leaving after-parties and clubs. Aesthetically, he’s not bad looking, but he just seems… weird, I guess. My gaydar beeps with him, which in and of itself doesn’t make him weird or anything. It’s just that he seems to be putting himself out there as some kind of hetero stud. And I’m not buying it.


Hot! Hot! Hot!

Twilight hunk Kellan Lutz is among the hunks stripping down to their skivvies in new ads promoting Calvin Klein’s latest male underwear collection, X. The campaign also features True Blood star Mehcad Brooks, Spanish tennis star Fernando Verdasco and Japanese athlete Hidetoshi Nakata.

According to Women’s Wear Daily, the new X campaign promises to be Calvin Klein’s most digital to date. It launches March 1, so keep your eyes open for behind-the-scenes videos; interviews with the four hotties and (gasp!) 3D-effect versions of the ads.

“We’re thinking bold, graphic and provocative, as always,” said Bob Mazzoli, chief creative officer for Calvin Klein Underwear.

How did Lutz, 24, get in shape for the ads?

“I swear, candy helps! Gummy bears!” he told at a Calvin Klein cocktail bash Jan. 28 in L.A. “It helps fight the hunger of higher calorie foods, but it is bad for the teeth.”

So, long gone are the days when someone actually dangerously sexy, like Mark Wahlberg, was actually modeling for Calvin Klein, right? Actually, there are more ads from this series, and a couple of these guys are kind of hot:


From the left: Mechad Brooks (from True Blood), Spanish tennis player Fernando Verdasco and Japanese soccer player Hidetoshi Nakata. Verdasco is very sexy, right? I’ve never heard of him, but I’ll be keeping tabs on him now.

    Kellan is completley hot and if he’s gay, so much the better.

    Nice to see he’s proportionate too.

  2. Tess says:

    ummmm, I’m thinking sock puppet.

  3. Dorothy says:

    I don’t like how Kellan’s junk is pointing at me…

  4. ien says:

    kellan isn’t all that imo, he’s too muscular, and he doesn’t sound very smart in interviews.
    verdasco on the other hand is so sexy…he dated camilla belle

  5. Susette says:

    Yes, Kaiser! You took the words out of my mouth.

    I mean he’s got a good body and the face isn’t bad, but there’s just something about him that turns me way off.

  6. Linda says:

    totally have never heard of the dude

  7. grisgris says:

    There is something about the way the letter X is superimposed on the pictures that make me think the letters on the waistband say “TWINKLE”.

    Yeah, not sexy.

  8. naye in VA says:

    what turns me off about his face is it seems a bit feminine. Which is odd cuz hes got a crazy hot body. IDK… Ive seen him a couple times where i thought his face was awesome

    I really think he doesnt need to be a blonde. A fake me out bleach blonde at that.

  9. Ally says:

    In these ads, he looks like Jude Law overdoing puffy-face inducing steroids.

  10. buckley says:

    Mind ya I don’t bat for his team, but I’ve never liked his face much.
    The body..well…I can certainly appreciate that.

  11. Praise St. Angie! says:

    I think he looks hot here, which is strange because I just saw “Twilight” and I thought he looked terrible with the dark hair. I think the lighter hair suits him better.

    regarding the “creep” factor…for ME, it’s when he smiles with his teeth showing that he looks creepy, and a little bit…um…dumb.

  12. snowball says:

    I vote creepy. And I think he stuffed.

  13. Corina says:

    I do like how his junk is pointed at me :) Seriously though, I think he’s hot stuff, and if he is gay, more power to him. I like that he made his role in Twilight very charming and playful – he has a little boy like innocence as Emmett that I thought he did well. But I have to admit I don’t feel 100% certain that these Calvin Klein models aren’t stuffing…

  14. lucy2 says:

    I keep seeing photos of this guy and agree there’s something kind of creepy and off about him. And his hair does always looked bleached. That underwear photo is probably the best I’ve ever seen of him.

    “I don’t like how Kellan’s junk is pointing at me…” LOL! It’s saying hey YOU! Yeah, you! Buy this underwear!”

  15. marky mark says:

    I don’t know about this..Calvin Klein’s pederastic ass usually hits better marks than these.
    Mark Wahlberg–at that time was was one step away from working out in “PRISON YARDS” and it made him look more natural. I can almost taste the honey flavored creatine these manufactured models are exuding thru their pores..

  16. shorty30 says:

    Mmmmm I’ll take him!!! He makes my toes curl!!! LOL

  17. mudnessa says:

    Yes do follow Verdasco you will NOT be disappointed, this is a good pic but there have been a lot of much much better ones!

  18. Erin says:

    I think there’s something really feminine about his face too – i’ve never found him attractive. also, his hair often appears to have been glued on in small tufts by a 5 year old, although i know that isn’t really the case.

  19. moo says:

    ALL KK ads are all about SEX… get’s old after a while. Orginality is not an option, I guess.

  20. chloe says:

    Who cares about Kellan Lutz, his body has nothing on Mehcad Brooks aka eggs. Mehcad is the hottest man on television! His face, voice and those abs are the business!!

  21. fashionforward says:

    love the japanese guy, damn. sexy, hot. not very familiar with any of these guys though i have to admit…

  22. mags says:

    yeah the japanese soccer player is hot. i googled Hidetoshi Nakata and my eyes are a little watery from staring at the computer screen so hard. i’d hit that, and then some. mmmm

  23. Feebee says:

    not hot, not creepy, just… meh, nothing.

  24. Trillion says:

    Nice to see a sexy Asian man up there. We don’t get to see that often. I think they’re all molto hot.

  25. Rianna says:

    Fernando Verdasco is sex walking. That’s all that needs to be said lol!

  26. Jag says:

    Brooks is the only one of those guys who isn’t making a strange face. The others either look like they’re scared, or in Lutz’s case, looks like he’s on the creepy prowl.

  27. stanhope says:

    no love for the Black guy? figures bitches.

  28. cedar falls says:

    Hot. But not as hot as Fernando Verdasco. I can’t wait until Wimbledon rolls round and I can stalk him again…

  29. Jag says:


    Brooks is the black guy. Maybe you posted at the same time I did? Because he’s the only one that looks natural in these photos, imo.

  30. H_Do says:

    I like the Asian soccer player there. Hot Asia Mans are getting more attention in the media lately, yey.

  31. Kerri says:

    Mechad and Hidetoshi are the sexiest ones in the ads.

  32. Rx says:

    @Mags & A@ Trillion – I think Hidetoshi Naka dude Is soooo freakin hot. I would take him over the rest of those guys anyday. Ugh, they are such carbon copy gym boys but Hid”that” is just WOW!

  33. anybody says:

    So, they showed the pre-ads, the photoshoots, and unphotoshopped, unedited material…
    And Kellan’s Lutzs are so small, they didn’t fill in the klein undies they gave him, badly!!!… Thank Lutz, the guy loves being photographed so you can check out the photoshoot on youtube… and see for yourself what the Lutz (doesn’t) have to offer!!
    there is a LOT of stuffing in them kleins
