Alex Pettyfer Covers 'Men's Health UK' August 2012

Alex Pettyfer throws a punch on the cover of Men’s Health UK‘s August 2012 issue.

Here’s what the 22-year-old Magic Mike star had to share with the magazine:

On gaining weight for Magic Mike: “I put on a bit of weight for this film. I started off at 169lb (77kg) and went up to 196lb (88kg). They told me I was too big, so in the end I had to take it back down to 185lb (84kg).”

On his ambitions and goals in life: “I’m very ambitious. I live in reality but I have dreams I want to fulfil – I want to be a director, and I’ve already started my own production company. But I also have a measure of success that I keep to myself. It’s something very personal to me.”

On his role models: “My dad’s one of my biggest heroes. I also think Paul Newman’s an inspiration. I know a lot of people say that, but I love that he’s a great role model and a humanitarian. I admire people who don’t necessarily want to change the world, but try to make it a better environment.”

    OMG!! That is def Christian Grey!! Look at him in the 2nd pic and the 3rd with the rope! OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH!

  • kiki

    perfect christian grey. i don’t know why people want ian s. to play him because he is too short and too old to play him. they should definitely cast alex, he has the looks and the bad boy attitude to pull it off. and pick some new actress as anastasia.

  • bb

    He looks older then his age i forget that he’s only 22

  • kicks

    at least they got him cleaned up and well behaved for magic mike pr

  • Lyn

    Super Hot

  • laura

    he was supposed to be the biggest thing by now. I guess being a douche really ruins some careers. First, he lost Peeta, then he asked for 10 millions to play that dude on that other movie. And now he’s on this movie because he’s friends with Channin.

  • sweetness


    at 22 he seems to be on track. being in a hit movie at this stage is perfect timing for his career.

  • Hollyweird

    Just ran into him in LA. Maybe he’s douche. Don’t know but he’s definitely HOT in person!!!

  • FitzpatrickClinton

    just as Tony implied I’m amazed that people able to profit $5539 in 4 weeks on the computer. did you look at this web page(Click on menu Home more information)

  • laura

    @sweetness: no, he was cast on this movie because Channin’s parents and his parents are ong time friends. He’s dead in Hollywood. He has no real fans, all his movies bombed. He was part of a PR couple, he’s a megadouche. If any, it was Channin’s movie, not his.

  • Caroline


    What are you talking about? Alex and Channings families are not friends. That was posted on IMDB ages ago and it is false. Anyone can log in and post anything on that site. The PR couple being he and Diana Agron ended a year ago and he has two new prestigious movie roles lined up starting this month. I assume you are young but I know you are dumb.

  • Caroline


    It’s not Channin – you idiot. Did you’re parents have any children that lived?

  • Caroline


    sorry typo

  • ds


    So the bathroom wall says Laura is a slut. So because it’s on the bathroom wall it must be true. So Laura is a slut that f– ugly guys in the bathroom.

  • Wes

    Wow now it’s coming out at about Alex and his on set tantrums. He never learns.

  • Rob

    Some Matt Bomer fans are so desperate here. lol Aren’t they banned from a gay forum because of Matt Bomer fan thread turned into Alex Pettyfer bashing thread. Sad Bomer fans…

  • K

    OMG ALEX F*** ME!!!! UGH!! OHHHH! YES!!!!

  • Lacey

    Alex has never looked better or sounded better. I’ve read the whole spread, he really seemed to open up a bit more. I like it.

    Seriously, we’re citing Hollywoodlife as a credible source? Lol. Or even an “unnamed source?” Please.

    Now that Alex is #7 on IMDB’s StarMeter I’m sure there are people with agendas who want to smear him, especially because he’s inserted himself again as a threat to take the parts they want, to get the attention they want, etc. He nabbed a role in “The Butler” and is riding high with Magic Mike’s performance. This article and fabricated story smells of an agenda.

    Laura, are you Matt’s Number one Crazy Fan, LauraCollared? You’re going to new lengths now, aren’t you?

    Rob- Yes about Bomer’s fangirls. Some of those girls are the very worst. One of their ringleaders LauraCollared on Twitter is hoping for a Magic Mike prequel strictly for the fact that if they do a prequel, Alex can be, or really, has to be cut out of any subsequent films. She leads that fangirl ship, so I’m sure all the rest of her little followers are spewing the same venom. They’re so jealous of Alex, and truly think the kid is a threat to Matt. Does anyone know why? Anyone?

    Matt’s a 34 year heartthrob who has a different career path entirely and doesn’t even compete for or want the same parts as Alex. Alex is a 22 year old kid, who is an ascending talent and heartthrob. He’s just getting started… Matt is running out of the “young talent” years. 34 in Hollywood is nearly 80, right? That LauraCollared girl claims to be friends with Matt. She was just talking about how he “likes” her on her Twitter after the DataLoungers, awful as they may be, were even noting how crazy she was, too. Sad day when they get something right. If Matt’s friends with that chick– he should call her off in regards to crapping on Alex next time he speaks to her, lest it reflect on him. It’s unbecoming. She’s a headcase in her over zealousness when it comes to him. Poor Alex getting crap because he’s a threat in the deranged minds of lunatic fangirls.
