Kellan Lutz never has to hit on women.

The 'Twilight Saga' heartthrob never needs to approach girls because they always make the first move on him.

However, he admits some ladies get so offended when he doesn't try to flirt with them they convince themselves he is gay.

He said: "See, I don't really go after girls. Most of the girlfriends I've had have come after me. So it's really funny when girls get offended because I don't hit on them. They'll transform their insecurity into, 'Oh, that makes sense, because I heard you're into guys and have a boyfriend.' I'm like, 'Seriously? That's your tactic to get me to like you?' There will always be rumours, but I know who I am."

Although he is not homosexual, Kellan loves his gay fans because he doesn't just want girls to come to see his movies.

Speaking about recently meeting a male fan who wanted to date him, he told gay interest magazine The Advocate: "We talked for about 15 minutes, and it clicked that he was probably hitting on me. By no means did I want to lead him on, so it was just kind of funny to me to realise that he was hitting on me - and doing a pretty good job.

"My gay fans are the best. I love them. When I meet gay fans out and about, they're so great to talk to - and I'm big on hugging, because I'm from the Midwest. They're just so energetic and loving. I'm proud to have those fans, and their support means a lot to me. I don't want just girls coming to my movies; I want guys to come too."
