Kellan Lutz was cut by a machete while shooting his latest film.

The 25-year-old actor loves tackling his own stunts but left his agent horrified when the knife action got out of hand on his new movie 'The Killing Game'.

He explained: "I loved doing stunts; I don't have tattoos and I always say that my scars and bruises are my tattoos. I just did this movie called 'The Killing Game' and we had real machetes and my chest got cut up by accident. My agent was like, 'That's your money maker! You can't ruin that!' "

Kellan - who is best known for playing Emmett Cullen in the 'Twilight Saga' - was left disappointed when he had to axe plans to indulge his action-loving side starring opposite Sylvester Stallone in 'The Expendables' because it clashed with his commitment to the vampire series.

He explained in an interview with website "I love action movies, I want to work with Sylvester Stallone one day. I was supposed to work on his movie 'The Expendables'.

"I auditioned for it and I got the role, but the scheduling didn't work out with 'New Moon'. And I was just like, 'What a bummer.' It has seven of my favourite action stars. Jason Statham, Jet Li, Mickey Rourke, Randy Couture... it's such an all-star cast. If the name 'Kellan' would have been up there with them, I would have died happy."
