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.
Channing Tatum, 31, is no stranger to taking off his clothes in his films, and it's a good thing, because his next film, Steven Soderberg's Magic Mike, costarring fellow hotties Alex Pettyfer (I Am Number Four), Matt Bomer (White Collar), and Matthew McConaughey (The Lincoln Lawyer) is based on Tatum's previous life as a male stripper.
Hot on the heels of the controversial news that Michael Bay's (Transformers, I Am Number Four) production company, Platinum Dunes, is developing a reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, it seems that Bay is now seeking the rights to another iconic franchise – the Halloween series.
Glee star Dianna Agron, 25, has reportedly split from her boyfriend of less than six months, Gossip Girl actor Sebastian Stan, 28. The duo has been together since the summer, just a few months after Agron's split from her I Am Number Four costar, Alex Pettyfer.
Now that I am Number Four Alex Pettyfer has had a taste of fame, he’s also experiencing one of the negative consequences: the dreaded “misunderstood” interview quotes. Pettyfer, 21, explains that although he does have a tattoo above his crotch, it doesn’t say “thank you” like VMAN magazine reported in a recent interview.
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.
While the sci-fi teen drama brought in $19.5 million in its opening weekend, the success of I Am Number Four was not enough to maintain the relationship between its two young stars, Alex Pettyfer, 20 and Dianna Agron, 24.
