Kellan Lutz is an inventor.

'The Legend of Hercules' hunk is obsessed with US TV show 'Shark Tank' - where entrepreneurs pitch business ideas to a panel of potential investors - because he loves seeing people's creations as he says he has several of his own in the pipeline.

He said: ''I love [TV show] 'Shark Tank', I watch that religiously. I'm obsessed with inventions and this year I have a few patents coming out. You'll see!''

The 28-year-old actor - who has recently been romantically linked to Miley Cyrus - prefers doing active sports to spending time working out in the gym to stay in shape.

He added: ''I don't go to the gym that much. I find more fun ways to work out: Playing basketball, playing volleyball and snowboarding.''

Kellan is also a fan of literature and is a particular fan of Francine Rivers' 'Redeeming Love' because he related to the subject matter.

He explained to America's OK! magazine: ''This is an amazing book. God tells a man to marry a prostitute, and he goes after her, and she doesn't feel worthy. I've been with women who don't feel their self-worth, and all you want to do is save them.''
