    Really? The number one flick? Don’t think so.

    I read the book and it was okay, but from what I’ve seen of the trailer…they’ve decided to focus more on the romantic aspect of the book not the action/suspense. I will wait until it hits dvd to watch it.

  • Mad

    saw this photo and thought :hot
    then google imaged him and said: ewh

  • elliott

    he’s a douche.
    beastley is going to be a bomb.

  • Louisa

    #1 movie to look out for? Is this a joke? There are dozens of more interesting movies this year. Plus he’s a jerk, I hope his movies bomb.

  • Julia

    he is absolutely HOT!!

  • mae

    Not really that excited for this film, i like dianna agron but he is a bit of a douche.

  • godric

    I hope these movies fail miserably. He’s such an arrogant douche. Treat your agents better and learn some humility Alex Pettyfer!

  • hahays

    he’s a good actor but beastly looks shite … i mean vanessa hudgens? …
    but i am number four actually looks good :D
    and i didn’t know he had a tattoo?! i swear he’s really young? i always think of him as alex rider, the 14 year old XD

  • Joanna

    He’s had so many films released already! Tormented, wild child, stormbreaker?

  • Just Jared

    @hahays: I LOVED ALEX RIDER!!!

  • maria

    Beastly looks GREAT to me……great cast, great updated story, fabulous adaptation of symbolism and color. Edgy, but fused with humor. You people must be nuts if the only kind of movie that looks good to you is about people getting killed off. There are ALL kinds of movies that are good, and Beastly will surprise.

  • Just Jared

    @Joanna: None of them were released wide in the US

  • hanni

    He’s a huge arrogant asshole, I hope his movie bombs too.

  • hanni

    @maria: lmao… stop, just stop.

  • Kaz simply Amaazzing !!!!!!!!

    Badgley here ???

  • http://Ta Sligo ^_^ cute


  • Kaz simply Amaazzing !!!!!!!!

    I mean just jared bagley here ?

  • Tara

    lol…So Alex Pettyfer is really willing to be phony enough to call the paparazzi to show himself off. What a loser doing these staged photos.

  • Kay

    Why are ya calling him a arrogant douche?…Did I miss something??…As for the movie, it’s not the #1 to watch out for.

  • Kaz simply Amaazzing !!!!!!!!

    MmmYeah baby harder, harder

  • Kay

    Why are ya calling him a arrogant douche?…Did I miss something?…As for the movie, it’s not the #1 to watch out for.

  • Kaz simply Amaazzing !!!!!!!!

    Yeah baby that’s true

  • @Kay

    @ Kay he seems like he thinks the world involves around him.
    Read some of his interviews.

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o L

    …USA Today got paid a lot of money to print that. how stupid could a person actually be to believe that this movie is the #1 flick to watch out for in 2011. ahahahahahahaha `i’ll be watching, and i don’t expect much.

  • jj

    I hope he gets the part of Jace Wayland

  • John Smith

    Is he wearing a wedding ring on his left hand? He is married?

  • maria

    @hanni: Shut the F up…..if you can’t stand other opinions, you don’t belong here.

  • Tara

    @John Smith: No he is not, the idiot got his ex-girlfriend Emma Roberts initials tattooed there so he wears a ring to cover it up.

  • Tara

    Pettyfer is just an incredibly vain tool.

  • theraisedeyebrow

    Did he just jog shirtless out of a parking garage? Normally I’d like to give people the benefit of the doubt, but I’m not so sure I can now.

    And I just recently read “I Am Number Four” and I thought that the descriptions, narrative and dialogue could use some refining. Don’t get me wrong; I like the concept, really. In a world where we’re constantly assaulted with images of vampire/werewolf sexpots, aliens are a good change. At least until they start overusing the alien sexpot concept next…

    Truthfully, the only characters I found relatable were Henri and Sam Goode. And at the risk of spoiling the books, I’d rather not say how the story ends up for one of them.

  • SSSSsssss

    He’s not married get a brain people! just dating. People calling him a douche? STFU!!!! I don’t know what interview you read or saw or what molded maggot filled ground you climbed of making claims like that. What are you women nuns can’t handle badass? looks like.

    Sexy pictures hottest guy ever!! and I like his tattoo it looks unique! He seem to have a weakness for them. The tat is better then another girls name any day.

  • KHK

    @ yeah you should know. Your mom’s a lot like that. A TOOL.

    Hey B*TCHES if you don’t Alex GET THE F*UCK OFF.

  • Dayandnight

    Nothing wrong with him jogging out of underground garage. I don’t see what the problems is. It’s not his fault the paps caught him you people should understand that people like him are so used to them by now that it’s like the cameras are part of the air and so they stay oblivious to it and carry along. Looks to me like he’s just minding his own business. With a face and body like that who wouldn’t jog out in the open sometimes. So vain my a$$!

  • playmaker

    Staged much?

    Also? #1 flick? Yeah, I’m sure you convinced yourself of that all the way to the bank.
    Tried to read the “book”, didn’t even make it halfway. Sad that this is the future of YA books and movies…

  • chick

    Maybe his new found wealth will allow him to afford some acting lessons.

  • Amber

    I’m sorry it is staged because he has rarely been papped before because the majority of paps in Los Angeles have no idea who he is. Still a majority of the movie going public that is not silly tween fangurls don’t know him. Pettyfer staged these photos and it is obvious his publicist is at work here.

  • infinity

    Staged or not for whatever reason under the minds of whoever PR etc who gives. He can act, he’s good looking and I’m glad he exists. Haters what little there is of you can get hit by a semi truck.

  • Cassie

    Dianna Argon is the one who’s the real douche! that girl is so hollywood her fans are sheep. Alex Rules!

  • Gilmore

    He’s okay. I hear some British people aren’t fond of him though.

  • Louisa

    He does come across as a douche in interviews but my problem with him is because he’s been a prick to more than one of my friends who have had the misfortune of having to work with him.

  • flor


  • christopher451

    I see the Achele harpies are out in force again. As for Louisa, there will be no details because she’s just making things up . Lying liars need to go back under the rock they came out from under.

  • Someone


  • Karen

    OK – so the Lea Michele/Dianna Fantasy girls are going to span this page. Well – Alex looks f— amazing. Get over it ladies.

  • Prison

    How about you actually READ the USA article… The top 11 movies were listed in release date order, not in order of most anticipated!! READ then REPORT!! Otherwise the last movie listed of the top 11 would be Twilight…

  • Amber

    So did Pettyfer’s manager/publicist or Alex himself insist on now being referred to as a “bad boy.” Because he is a real jerk to women in general and was a controlling bf to Emma Roberts. So I guess it fits him well.

  • commonsense

    How is he a bad boy? Because he has a tattoo? I’m confused. As for him being a douche, it just goes to show that looks will only get you so far.

  • GALE


  • Lexy

    Alex you are the perfect male.

  • jacque

    I HATE bodies like his and most girls I know also hate that kind of body, it’s not like he’s HUGE, he’s just too muscular (hope you know what I mean)… and, please, he’s jogging AT NIGHT, why does he need a hat? And why isn’t he wearing a shirt? I love Dianna and think she’s really sweet so I try not to believe he’s a douche but gosh, he doesn’t make it easy trying to think he’s nice.
