The Legend of Hercules star Kellan Lutz said he used his down-time during Twilight filming to buff up his body in a bid to fight boredom.

He told Men's Health, "I was bored. They put us in these mall apartment complexes – the fans and paparazzi were outside the whole time. So I bunkered down in the gym; it was my escape."

It was his role in Immortals however that had a huge effect on his diet, "For Immortals, we all had dieticians. Every hour they'd hand you eight almonds or a plate of spinach."

Lutz manages to maintain his regime by ordering off the menu in restaurants, "Just ask if they have salmon and avocado and if they mind throwing together a salad for you. It's being delibertately ignorant but it works."

The Legend of Hercules is set for a March 28 release.
