He signed on to portray the role of the film's "tracker" vampire James.
Gigandet received his second "Best Fight" award win at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards with Robert Pattinson.
The 29-year-old singer has been open about the fact that she struck up a friendship with Rutler, who is also a guitarist, during filming.'Matthew is a special person,' she told People magazine last week. 'He's the kind of person you could spend hours on the phone talking to and all of a sudden it's daylight.'Once I filed for divorce, we started dating. I'm having fun, I'm dating and it's something I haven't had in a really long time.'Her new boyfriend has accompanied the mother-of-one on a publicity trip to Japan this week, where she appeared at a press conference with co-stars Kristen Bell and Cam Gigandet.
And the singer has revealed how her relationship with husband Jordan Bratman had been troubled for some time before their split.'Things were so unhealthy and unhappy for both Jordan and me, I knew I had to end it. 'When I finished filming, I didn't feel right in my own shoes [at home].
I really didn't want to hurt Jordan, and I felt torn about splitting our family up. I was nurturing Max and felt independent in the relationship.''I went right into filming Burlesque [in Autumn last year]. I had a lot of things stirring inside of me that I felt were being suppressed.
'When you're unhappy in your marriage, your children are the ones who suffer. As a musician you're with your posse all the time, and during the movie I removed myself from mine.
The couple announced their engagement in early 2014 and are expecting a child together.People who have been in it for so long tend to take less risks, but take after take, she would take a risk and play around and try new things, every single time. Cher is such an idol of Christina’s, and her confidence would be boosted. The greatest thing for me was just to able to watch somebody as experienced as Cher have as much freedom as she had, and see her play around. Even with Stanley Tucci, they were such pros and they made it look absolutely effortless. Cher has had a film career, but Christina Aguilera hasn’t. After being here for a few months, someone had said, “Hey, you should try an acting class.” That night, I knew that this is where I was going to be. GIGANDET: You know, it’s such an insult to actual martial artists that I say that I do martial arts. Maybe if you combine it all, I could be a martial artist. The film also stars Ed Helms, Christina Applegate, and Leslie Mann, with Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo reprising their roles from the original 1983 film. The film is set to be released on July 29 – we cannot wait! That's the last thing I wanted for my son.''We were great the first year after Max was born. Barneys just announced their 50% off sale and apparently Lisa Rinna scooted straight from the gym to the store.Gigandet joked that, unlike the women in the film who were clad in elaborate bustiers and stockings, his wardrobe included "cookie boxes and pajamas." (In one very memorable scene, Gigandet parades around with nothing but a Famous Amos box covering his nether regions.) Aguilera lamented that he got off easy: "You didn't have to do any push-up bras, any high heels, any fishnet stockings." Aguilera did reveal a few makeup secrets, however, and reported that Gigandet donned eyeliner for his part as Jack, the love interest to Aguilera's Ali. , opening over the Thanksgiving holiday, Cam Gigandet portrays Jack, the confidante of small-town girl Ali Rose (Christina Aguilera), who has come to the big city in the pursuit of her dream to be a singing star. I knew it was not a strip show, but I knew it was dancing, I knew it was sexy and I knew it was entertaining.The couple met on the set of her debut film Burlesque earlier in the year, but the singer says they didn't start dating until after she filed for divorce from her husband Jordan Bratman.New pictures have emerged showing that the pair did indeed grow close during filming, and that Matt, who worked as a set assistant, was glued to her side. I'm taking it slow and trying to be happy.' But despite insisting they are taking things slowly, she added: 'There's a love there, yes.
