Kellan Lutz Lends a Hand for New Orleans!

The Twilight actor helped build homes for Hurricane Katrina victims -- and hopes to get Robert Pattinson involved next time!

Believe it or not, Kellan Lutz is as good on the inside as he looks on the outside! The Twilight star has spent the last week working with New Orleans' St. Bernard Project in an attempt to build five houses in seven days for victims of Hurricane Katrina.

"We were working around the clock at 50 hours at a time in different shifts," Lutz told UsMagazine. "We got it done just in time. We had so many people come out and lend a helping hand. It was so touching. "

Lutz, 25, credits his girlfriend, 90210 star AnnaLynne McCord, with opening his eyes to the desperate need for volunteers in the area. "She really educated me on the need down there," the actor said. "You don't really grasp what is going on unless you are down there experiencing it."

Lutz will be back in Louisiana when Breaking Dawn begins filming in Baton Rouge and plans to continue his volunteer work.

"I'm hoping to truck down and work with the St. Bernard Project [there] as well," he said. "Hopefully I'll be bring some other cast members too."

Does Lutz mean that the very proper Robert Pattinson could be getting all rugged on us? "It would be a great surprise for everyone," Lutz said, laughing. "Although I would have to take video of Rob trying to hammer a nail, he might hurt himself."
