London: `Twilight` actor Kellan Lutz has been left scarred for life after coming too close to a blade during a fight scene in his upcoming movie `Arena`.

The 26-year-old plays a Roman gladiator in the fight epic and said his enthusiasm left him with a painful souvenir, reported a website.

"We had this machete fight. I leaned in a little too closely for this machete and it goes `Slash!"

But Lutz says he loves scars and is proud of the battle scar on his chest.

"I like it because I love scars for some reason. I feel like you get them and they aren`t on purpose, but you have them forever and you get to remember where they came from," he
