CANNES WATCH: 'Expendables' Kellan Lutz relishes down time, calls franchise 'a dream'

TOURRETTES, France - After a Cannes whirlwind that included a tank ride and walking the red carpet to promote "The Expendables," Kellan Lutz was eager for a chance to unwind.

He got it as the Terre Blanche Hotel Spa Golf Resort in the Provence region hosted Lutz and other stars as a getaway from the Cannes madness. The 750-acre resort, which also has a vineyard, offered spa treatments and more, and provided culinary delights at a private dinner there Tuesday night.

"It's been exhausting in the best of ways," said Lutz, who planned to go to Monte Carlo, which is hosting the Grand Prix, after Cannes. "I just want to lay out by the pool, get a massage. I never treat myself. ... It's just a great little break."

Lutz was in Cannes for "The Expendables 3," which made arguably the biggest splash in Cannes. The all-star cast, which includes Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mel Gibson, Jason Statham and Harrison Ford, rode down the famous Croisette in tanks, held a raucous press conference and walked the red carpet. It's out in the United States in August.

The "Twilight" actor called the experience surreal, particularly the Saturday morning tank ride, which drew a massive crowd.

"It was 10 a.m.. ... We're like, who's up at 10 a.m.? We had people running from where we started which was a mile away," he said.

Lutz said working with the veteran actors was "a dream."

"When you put them together, you would think that it would be an epic battle of who is bigger, who's better, who's stronger. But everyone complements each other significantly," he said. "I hope we get to do a fourth one and a fifth one."
