Kellan Lutz and Sharni Vinson have ended their two-year relationship.
The two began dating in September 2011 after meeting during a chemistry reading for Step Up 3D. Vinson won the role of street dancer Natalie, but Lutz wasn’t cast in the film.
In the early days of their relationship, Lutz, who previously dated AnnaLynne McCord on and off from 2008 to 2010, had tons of good things to say about his new lady love.
“She’s a happy person, which really just clicks with me,” Lutz said. “It’s just great to have someone you can smile with all the time. It’s really special.”
Similarly, Vinson said the two were “really happy.” The 29-year-old previously dated CSI: NY actor A.J. Buckley from 2007 to 2008.
No reason was given for the breakup, and neither party has commented on the split.
Vinson has appeared in Cold Case, CSI: NY, and My Boys. The Aussie actress is currently working on You’re Next, a horror-thriller written by Simon Barrett (V/H/S) and directed by Adam Wingard (A Horrible Way to Die). The film had its world premiere at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival and is set to be released August 23, 2013 in the United States.
Lutz is best known for playing Emmett Cullen in the Twilight saga. He played Poseidon in the 2011 film Immortals, and made another leap into the realm of mythology with Tarzan, which is currently in post-production. The 28-year-old was also recently cast as Hercules in Hercules 3D, which begins filming in Bulgaria this month. Very few details have been revealed so far, but at the center of the film will be a love story between the eponymous hero and the mortal princess of Crete.
Executive producer Boaz Davidson said Lutz had the “look and charisma” writer Renny Harlin was looking for, and added that Harlin wanted Lutz to play the hero from the start.
