Who Is Alex Pettyfer
Alexander Richard Pettyfer was born in Stevenage, Hertfordshire on April 10, 1990. The son of an actor, Pettyfer had his first glimpse of things to come at the tender age of eight when a man approached him and his mother at a store in New York and suggested a modeling career. Pettyfer’s mother was understandably hesitant, but that man ended up being Ralph Lauren himself, and his words proved to be prophetic when Pettyfer started booking gigs. As a young teenager, Pettyfer’s sights shift to acting and he enrolled in drama school to work on his craft.
We calculate Alex Pettyfer has a net worth of some $4 million dollars, as of 2020. This newcomer is heating up the box office in flicks like I Am Number Four and Beastly.
It wasn’t long before Pettyfer’s good looks and undeniable talent led to his first national gig. In 2005, the 15-year-old appeared as the title character in the British television production of Tom Brown’s Schooldays. His performance was met with acclaim, and in 2006 he reached teen heartthrob status when he was cast as a teenage MI6 spy in Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker opposite Ewan McGregor and Mickey Rourke. He earned a lot of buzz for landing such a high profile role and he quickly followed up with roles in two more British films—Wild Child and Tormented.
In 2007, Pettyfer returned to modeling, booking impressive ad campaigns with Burberry and Hugo Boss, but the potential for a big break in the U.S. drove Pettyfer back to the big screen when he was cast opposite Timothy Olyphant and Dianna Agron as the lead in Michael Bay and Stephen Speilberg’s I Am Number Four. The film received mixed reviews, but Pettyfer received some positive feedback on his performance and the buzz led to a 2011 packed with nonstop film work.
Next up was Beastly, a modern telling of Beauty and the Beast costarring Vanessa Hudgens. Pettyfer tackled the classic role of the beast, ditching his signature good looks for ugly scars and protruding veins. Later in the year, he starred opposite Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried in the thriller Now.
Despite his impressive explosion onto the film scene, Pettyfer’s personal life stole center stage in the press. He already earned a bad boy image, sporting at least six tattoos that include a Celtic cross and the initials of his ex-flame Emma Roberts, Julia Roberts’ niece.
In 2010, he began a whirlwind romance with Glee‘s blonde bombshell and I Am Number Four costar Agron. The two snuggled at premieres and professed their love on the talk show circuit, but after moving in together and sparking rumors of an engagement, things ended suddenly in February of 2011. Agron moved out of the couple’s home and reportedly began to hide in a hotel under an alias, terrified of her former beau. The press is buzzing about their split, and Pettyfer has been portrayed as a loose cannon by the often unforgiving media.
