Alex Pettyfer, 22, the British star who made a name for himself in such films as I Am Number Four with Dianna Agron (to whom he was briefly engaged) and Beastly with Vanessa Hudgens, recently revealed that he experienced a bit of a weight fluctuation in preparation for his role as newbie stripper Adam in Magic Mike, costarring Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum.
Matthew McConaughey, 42, has had such a reputation for his laid-back, live-and-let-live personality that he has come to make fun of it himself in productions like Failure to Launch and Eastbound & Down.
Yes, they may have been acting literally their entire adult lives, but 25-year-old starlets Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen are about to call it quits in front of the camera to focus on their clothing labels — Elizabeth & James and The Row.
He may seem too young to be jaded, but fresh-faced heartthrob Alex Pettyfer, 21, who epitomized irony playing the titular role in this year's Beastly, is already getting a reputation in Hollywood. Pettyfer has strong opinions about the film industry, and now he's been dubbed "Hollywood's Next Bad Boy" by VMAN magazine.
It was a good weekend for newcomers at the movies, as the Top 3 films of the weekend had their debut on Friday. Johnny Depp’s animated western Rango took the number one spot with an impressive $38 million, followed by the Matt Damon and Emily Blunt thriller The Adjustment Bureau and Beastly, Alex Pettyfer’s modern take on the fairy tale of Beauty and the Beast, which brought in $20.
Fresh off the release of his sci-fi romance I Am Number Four, Alex Pettyfer hit the red carpet again last night, this time for the Los Angeles premiere of his latest film Beastly. In theaters March 4 and costarring Vanessa Hudgens, Mary-Kate Olsen and Neil Patrick Harris, the film centers around a handsome but superficial high schooler forced to learn the importance of inner beauty.
