Alex Pettyfer Kind Of A Dick

Wednesday, February 9 by

New up-and-comer Alex Pettyfer, the star of the upcoming I Am Number Four, seems to think that he’s Number One. He’s not though, he’s Number Four. It says it right there in the title, Alex! You can’t just decide to jump 3 numbers on a whim. Be happy you’re not Number Five, or worse, Number Six!

Apparently, Pettyfer found out he was making less than a co-star on I Am Number Four, and subsequently refused to cash any of his checks after DreamWorks refused to renegotiate his contract. That’ll show ‘em, Alex! Work for free, and see who’s laughing then. You’re not gonna take a dime of theirs (he later cashed his checks).

There have been some other reports of “defiant behavior” and the like, but apparently this has all been patched up for now. It had to, since obviously Hollywood isn’t going to put up with dickish behavior from movie stars, right? There’s a certain level of decorum to be expected, no matter who you are.

    Well, if I had been playing the lead and find out that other actors get more money for less work, I wouldn’t be too happy either.

    Don’t wanna sound all bitter and resentful, but that kid probably made more on this one insignificant soon-to-be bargain bin dvd, than I make in 10 years. Actors are all greedy selfish pricks.

    WOW, I am surprised! He is NOT Peeta in The Hunger Games now.

    Who told you that ? As far as I know, there isn’t any decision about the casting of Peeta officially announced yet.
