Lutz has called the relationship rumors "hilarious" in a recent interview with Ryan Seacrest while promoting his new film The Legend of Hercules. He tells Seacrest, "These rumors are hilarious. It just makes me laugh … I’ve been friends with Miley for like six years. She’s a great girl … we are friends [and] we run in the same circle."
Lutz described Miley as a "cool, secure woman," before explaining again, "Are we dating? No… I’m happily single … I’m not [looking for a relationship] right now. I’m enjoying life and traveling quite a bit … there’s no real time to find the one."
As for his role as Hercules, Lutz says, "For me there was no pressure, just excitement. Because this is my favorite superhero … for me, Hercules was my childhood dream."
He also explains he went on the Paleo diet to help create his muscular figure for the film. "For me with Hercules, I adapted the Paleo diet: no gluten, no dairy. But you can eat fruit and a lot of raw vegetables … I love candy, so as soon as I cut out my gummy bear addiction … you learn to love vegetables."
