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.
