Twilight Saga star Kellan Lutz believes he has what it takes to win an Oscar.

Lutz, who is currently dating Home and Away star Sharni Vinson, also admitted that he is looking forward to the release of the final instalment of the vampire series Breaking Dawn – Part 2 next month because he wants to move on to the next phase of his career.

Speaking to DuJour magazine, Lutz said: ''I want to act for the rest of my life. I'll win an Oscar one day, but I'm in no rush to get there. I don't care if that takes me 50 years, and I'm old. I just love what I do.''

The 27-year-old actor also compared the ending of Twilight to graduating from school, adding: ''It really is bittersweet. It's very much like high school...and I'm ready to graduate. This is such a special moment in my life. I really just want to experience it with the people who mean the most to me.''

Lutz is set to join the rest of his cast-mates including reunited couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart for the film's star-studded premiers around the world in the coming weeks.
