Alex Pettyfer's Reputation Gets A LOT Less Pretty

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooAlex Pettyfer

alex pettyfer has an attitude problem

Lately, we've been hearing a lot of less-than-pretty things about Alex Pettyfer, and it looks like they're going to keep on coming.

Here's what an insider had to say to PEOPLE about Pettyfer's attitude:

"Alex is not good around big groups of people. He likes to be alone. He's very isolated and he has a bad temper."

So we've been told. Here's a rundown of the other complaints that have come up lately regarding Alex Pettyfer:

-Caused "extreme tension" on I Am Number Four set

-Demanded a renegotiation of his $250,000 deal on Four, when he learned another actor was making more $$$ than him

-Was absent from marketing meetings for his film Beastly

-Demanded $10 million for Screen Gems' Mortal Instruments, which caused an immediate end to a meeting

-Referred to as "cocky" and "very ahead of himself"

Seems pretty clear to us that the Alex formally known as "Prettyface" has got an attitude problem. Such a shame that his personality isn't on par with his seksi body and face. Ah well!

What do U think about Alex Pettyfer? Attitude problem or no?

    this dumbo eared, over grown leprechaun needs to disappear from site. he needs his ass smacked and his groin kicked.



  2. 2

    "formally know as" or "FORMERLY known as"?



  3. 3

    Alex pettyfer needs to get a reality check if this is how he truely is. He is not that famous and already the fame has gone to his head and overbearing ego.



  4. 4

    Someone needs to bitch slap him.



  5. 5

    Very unlikeable



  6. 6

    Aside from his so-called temper, I don't see what the big fuss is about. We know nothing of this "tension" on the set, so I can't comment on that. As for wanting more money for a starring role, I can see that. If another actor is getting paid more than the star, then I think the star should have the right to negotiate for more money. Sure, actors are overpaid, but he does play the main character in the movie. Does he really have to be at marketing meetings? Isn't that why the studios hire people to go to these things? If it's not required, then it's not a big deal. I just don't see why it's that much of a newsworthy thing. He might have a temper, might. He may be a little cocky, but he's young and he's getting some fame and success. If he turns out to be a nightmare, then we'll have room to talk about him.



  7. 7

    it is so sad that someone was given a chance of a lifetime and he blew it up! SHAME!



  8. 8

    Another good report from Perez. This was kn the Hollywood Reporter a week ago. Nothing new here.



  9. 9

    No NO NOOOOOOO! all these comments are wrong wrong wrong…. Perez is slow as always, everyone that wants to know about where he is getting his personality from then look up James Dean, he was known to have a bad attitude even piss on people on set from rumors… but you would have to look it up! but all I am going to say is James Dean, Perez! what happened to you keeping a nice guy truce? either your team is dumb or you were just looking to be on Ellen, either way get your facts straight, the hot thing to do now is to reincarnate an old favorite act, Lady Gaga, doing all the old pop acts in one, Ann Hath shooting for our favorite "Breakfast at tiff's" actress, this actor is evoking Mr James Dean, nothing new… don't be fooled America! but then again it's America…



  10. 10

    He has a right to demand money and in my opinion, he also has a right to be cocky.



  11. 11

    He'll either learn or his career will be cut short. Period. The fact is, it pays to not be an asshole in Hollywood. People always talk about how nice Brendon Fraiser is and that is why he keeps getting work even though his films are terrible. When you build strong relationships in Hollywood based on respect, you are more likely to have a lasting career. It is all well and good to be the lead in 1 blockbuster style movie, but if everyone on set, the director, the producers and studio heads say "this kid is too hard to work with" then no other production will touch him. There are plenty of attractive, talented men willing to take Alex's career right out from under him. If Alex was smart, he would get his act together and make sure he treats people with kindness and respect. Hollywood is a small community and it's hard to shake a bad reputation, especially when it comes to ones level professionalism. If he wants to be a piece of shit in his personal time, thats fine. But if directors and producers think he's unprofessional then there is no coming back from that. It'll be over.



  12. 12

    at the end of the day, if he does his job well, thats what'll keep him going. i saw the interview he did on ellen, he seemed likeable enough there. good media publicity like that always overshadows blog 'reports' and good movie roles/acting keep you in the buisiness. i didnt mind i am number 4, he was perfectly fine at it.

    i mean at least he wasn't abusive to his gf. yeah thats right, if chris brown can still sell records after beating up his gf, im sure egotistical 20 year olds have a chance



  13. 13

    Sad if true. Dude, there are 100 more pretty faces in line behind you. We are all replaceable. Get over yourself!

    I worked on the set of Beastly in Montreal… and from what I saw, Alex was very cordial, pleasant and easy to get along with. Sure, he knew he looked good and was on verge of stardom, but I think all his bad rap lately is getting way out of control. Give the guy a break and pick on a real ass hole like Charlie Sheen!!



  15. 15

    FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE



  16. 16

    Then the powers that be need to cut him off before the mainstream knows who he is. Once he gets big, he'll be a major pain for all. There's enough talent out there that would be thrilled to have his opportunities - and most of them would even groom properly.



  17. 17

    bizaarly i have a photo of a ex whos part scottish looks alot like this guy is he part scottish?

    i guess it depends on how much money hes making for them all as to how much he can get away with

    Its a shame they cant just be cool and make things easy for everyone its meant to be like a fantasy job we all would love why ruin it by making things unpleasant and uncool

    how hard can it be u stand in front of the camera and do ur thing for awhile big deal then just be nice to the other workers how hard can that be



  18. 18

    He sounds like an ass. I guess he forgot that he's really not a big name yet. The idea he wants to renegotiate his contract because someone else is making more - maybe he has to realize that if you are not well known and don't have a good track record yet, you're not going to be paid as much as other actors regardless of whether or not he has the starring role. I do feel bad about the fire at his house. I guess he wasn't very careful when he was burning Dianna's stuff (joking).



  19. 19

    His pseudo fame is at 14 minutes 50 seconds.

    Re: catlover – Well said. Bravo!

    As long as he does a decent job of acting, who gives a fuck. He's not our friend, and it's not like our lives will change depending on whether or not he's a major douche-wad, or if he's Mother Teresa. Seriously.



  22. 22

    Sounds like somebody has it in for this guy (jealousy maybe?), and it also sounds like he can stick up for himself, which is a good quality to have in Hollywood. If he can act and sell tickets that's all that matters, the trash will sort itself out.



  23. 23

    Re: FiveStarFreddie – Youre comparing James Fucking Dean to this loser who hanst even been considered A list.



  24. 24

    Re: Nikos555 – Of course hes going to start likable!!!!!Its Ellen! What you think hes going to act like a douche.



  25. 25

    I only saw him once on Ellen. And he seemed VERY full of himself. Usually I can't spot these things but it was very evident in the interview.
    Now if it was just said that he is a private person who doesn't like to be in a large group, I would understand why he seems so standoffish. But all those other rumors about him demanding money and being difficult on set? Hmm yeah, he has an ego problem.



  26. 26

    Re: Allesandra Casillas – Based on what? He needs to establish his career in the US before he goes demanding money. He's just starting out, he has no right to act like that.



  27. 27

    Re: catlover – lets get some perspective. the leads of Twilight, are getting paid $12 million a movie. This is after the first film proved to be a hit. Not when everything was up in the air.

    And this report was actually originally given by the Hollywood Reporter which is one of a couple most respected Hollywood publications. They collected interviews from producers and insiders on this guy.

    Why is it a big deal? because everyone thinks he's going to be the next "big thing". But he's obviously ecomaniacal.



  28. 28

    I'm really over cocky celebs, no matter who you're talking about. They're ACTORS…not exactly curing cancer or splitting atoms…get over yourself



  29. 29

    I'm really over cocky celebs, no matter who you're talking about. They're ACTORS…not exactly curing cancer or splitting atoms…get over yourself…on that note I'll get back to studying bio so i can become a doctor and have a real job that doesn't involve being a b-list celebrity making movies that haven't even been released yet but look like they blow



  30. 30

    The British and Americans think their chit don't stink. That's just because the stink of their arrogance is stronger.



  31. 31

    He's a wanker. Trust. The stunts he constantly pulls are ridiculous and only hurts the people around him. It's sad, because he does have a good chance in this town, but he's just not a good person.



  32. 32

    i like him he's got individuality.he's intersting and troubled what is wrong with that do you want him to be a poster boy for chocolate milk..leave him be an artist they are supposed to be introspective and on the wild side.he's absolutely gorgeous by the way…so shush up!



  33. 33

    Oh, please, like he'd be the first asshole in hollywood huh? I don't know, it's almost like there's a smear campaign on this guy this week, a bunch of rumors but nothing concrete.



  34. 34

    Re: FiveStarFreddie – Are you retarded?



  35. 35

    Re: UstinkA – Chit or shit?? Atleast learn how to spell if you're going to insult entire nations…silly bitch.



  36. 36

    Alex lost one of the most beautiful girls to hit Hollywood, his career, and all for a movie nobody cares to pay for… When men become divas… Whatever happened to powerful actors who could be dysfunctional like Marlon Brandon, Richard Burton, and Sir Lawrence Olivier? Now we have pretty boys like Collin Farrell the diva male who has been pouting ever since he failed at trying to carry off the greatest military general of all history, Alexander the Great. Please, you couldn't act as Alexander the Great's blacksmith. You couldn't play Napoleon's door man with all the booze you drink before hitting the set. What do these actors insist on forgetting that acting is a career, a job, a path towards a greater goal?

  38. 38

    This kid is not attractive…



  39. 39

    well lets be real he grew up rich and attractive of course he is going to have at least a little air of self loving, but as they say self love is better then self hate.
    I think people need to remember this is a GOSSIP site, how much gossip is actually truth? … well no one knows.
    I for one like him :)

    40

    Does he really think he is famous????? He's nothing…. just because he has made a few bad movies.

    This dude is nuts. He need a chill pill fast!



  41. 41

    still doing character assassinations on people without a shred of evidence just dubious rumours?

    yeah same old Perez scumbag Hilton



  42. 42

    Re: scratchit – You Dumb Ass He Was Quoting Other People's Sources. An If You Weren't Aware Your On A Gossip Site



  43. 43

    Everyone here in LA gets angry & isolated and no-shows at stuff. Especially the non-famous people because they don't have it easy here in LA. Ever! celebs get a "free-for-all" practically everywhere. As For Alex, you have to be Alex to really know the truth or false of this story. One of his homes was on fire this week, would you be pissed off or what. Alex has the "LA mood" like most people out here actually have but just don't wanna admit.



  44. 44

    Gees if those are only complaints about him that you have it doesn't make him bad…mostly it is about making as much money as he can-the AMERICAN GOAL isn't it? It's a bad goal in my opinion but still…



  45. 45

    Re: UstinkA – That's right, our "chit" doesn't stink…..that's why we live in the best country in the world now go get a green card



  46. 46

    well, I understand if you are a new comer, that you get scale, or close to it, even if you are starring in a movie, but, if people around the movie are saying it is going to be BIG, and you find someone else is getting paid alot more, YES, I CAN SEE DEMANDING MORE MONEY. No, you probably will not get it, but you can demand it. Maybe go in with a good attitude and ask for earning bonuses, maybe work. BUT, MARIO, I DO NOT BELIEVE IN SOURCES. GIVE NAMES, OR POSITIONS



  47. 47

    I dont even think he's that hot. No Liam Hemsworth or Garrett Hedlund, thats for sure. Just another skeevy Brit.



  48. 48

    A slightly short-fused business man, that's all.



  49. 49

    I read a blind item recently about a pretty guy who acts out aggressively because he is fighting his homosexuality. Hmmm…



  50. 50

    IF HES THE STAR OF THE MOVIE AND SOMEONE ELSE IS MAKING MORE THAT IS PHUCK UP. ID BE PISSED TOO!!



  51. 51

    I HEARD THAT HE KICKED DIANA AGRONSKY OUT OF THEIR PLACE BECAUSE SHE WOULD ONLY TAKE DOGGIE STYLE TWICE A NIGHT AND WOULDNT SWALLOW



  52. 52

    I finally remembered where I've seen this guy before….in an excellent British horror movie called "Tormented" (2009).



  53. 53

    You sound jealous Perez!!!



  54. 54

    Re: FemaleFilmMajor – Actually, Brendan Fraser is an asshole. I met him once and he thought his shit didn't stink. He was a total dickhead and he was driving a Volvo. True story. Hollywood puts up with all sorts of assholes if the assholes bring in the revenue.



  55. 55

    Number four will bomb, worst marketing campaign ever. All we know about the movie is that he's in it and has messed up hair

  56. Lo808 says – reply to this


    56

    STOP!!!!!!! I saw a few interviews with Alex and DJ Caruso the director of I am Number Four and they were getting a long fine and laughing even though you reported they didnt get along….Plus how do you really know all this is true, PEREZ you need to realize you are helping with ruining this guys career and giving him a bad image.



  57. 57

    i've literally heard of this guy like once and he was in my dream last night and he had been killed in a house fire. it was actually really scary. weird though i don't really know anything about him or anything he's been in..



  58. 58

    i'd suck his "cocky" anytime, but yeah, he's a no name jerk



  59. 59

    this guys headed strait for the hershey highway



  60. 60

    A perfect example of someone who should be seen and not heard. (Shortly after Dianna Agron started dating him, she fired all her representatives, it was believed at his urging. Good thing she has now distanced herself from this trainwreck. He could have derailed her entire career).



  61. 61

    whatever his hot.

  62. sanaa says – reply to this


    62

    He's only 20! a kid and they put him as a nobody starring in a big budget movie?? Why??



  63. 63

    You all know this is just advertising for his new movie Beastly right??
    Cause this sounds JUST like the character he's gonna be playing….

  64. @v@ says – reply to this


    64

    He's just another young guy with ambition and testosterone who will figure out the rules in time. A bit wild? Sometimes that brings appeal with it. Give him time, and in the meantime this business of compiling his bad laundry list looks like yellow journalism. Let the guy get started.



  65. 65

    I've known Alex since he had his first major role in Alex Rider and I can tell you that all these so-called rumours are completely untrue. He's easy to talk to and very outgoing and takes his work seriously. By Perez posting all of these rumours it's really actually starting to make people think that Alex is high-tempered, rude and full of himself which is absolutely NOT true.

    A word of advice Perez, try getting to know him before believing what all these so-called "sources" have to say.



  66. 66

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – …ya well you are not a Hollywood producer are you? Your impression of him isn't necessarily all that significant in the grand scheme of his career. Which actually brings me back to Alex. I don't care if he is an asshole to his fans, what he does in his personal time is no ones business. If his fans think that he is a loose cannon, and an asshole with a superiority complex, well thats just the way it is. But if producers, directors and studio heads think the same thing then his career will die. This Alex kid is not Tom Cruise, or Johnny Depp or Will Smith. He has yet to prove himself. Right now he is some snot nose, Hollywood noob who the public wont miss if he is never in another movie. The fact is no one is going to stake their 30 million dollar movie production on some asshole who treats everyone like garbage, slows down the production, doesn't meet press and media obligations and demands more money, not because he deserves it, but because he feels entitled to it. Do you really think some Director who has been working in Hollywood for 30 years is going to put up with that? No. they wont. Filmmaking requires the upmost professionalism, and this kid conspicuously lacks it. And that is enough to end his career.

    Re: FemaleFilmMajor – Flaming some new young guy based on some random rumor is lousy, don't you think?



  68. 68

    Um…what happened to the new nice Perez? You are negatively portraying a young in the early stages of a career; be it directly or indirectly.



  69. 69

    Omarosa needs to take charge of this guy



  70. 70

    He's in desperate need of a BIG meat injection to help him chill and take it easy.



  71. 71

    no one as good looking as he is, is nice. ever.



  72. 72

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – actually Brendan Fraser is a really nice guy. I was at Ceder Sinai Hospital visiting a friend and could here children constantly laughing. when i was leaving i checked out what was going on and it was Brendan Fraser visiting the childrens cancer center. he had brought tons of toys and was actually making balloon animals. maybe you where just giving off a weird vibe. and what does he driving a Volvo have to do with anything?



  73. 73

    Re: @v@ – .. sure, but rumors in Hollywood destroy careers. Think of it this way, If you were a big time Hollywood producer who invested 20 million dollars in a film, are you going to go for a young, talented actor with a reputation of being unprofessional and impossible to work with or are you going to choose an equally talented young actor with a reputation of being professional and great to work with? Sure, bad reputations and rumors are never completely true but that doesn't make them any less destructive.



  74. 74

    I just watched that number four movie. I have to say he has impressive acting abilities. Beastly, on the otherhand looks downright stupid.



  75. 75

    Don't care. Nuff said.



  76. 76

    He does look the type to be a total asshole and extremely full of himself. But who knows. All of these reports could be malicious and untrue. I kind of doubt it though. If he was truly genuine and nice, reports of this kind would have never been thought up
