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.”
