If you don't already know about Alex Pettyfer, you need to. He is the star of teen flick Wild Child, Red Riding Hood, and upcoming film Beastly. Pettyfer finds himself as a "relative unknown on the brink of stardom, a blank canvas on which anyone can project a scandalous backstory".
Here is Alex Pettyfer in an editoral for V Man shot by Mario Testino.

According to V Man, Pettyfer's publicist pulled Blaskberg aside to ask if he has read Pettyfer's Wikipedia page. It's all wrong, she tells Blasberg, and he shouldn't even bother.
Blasberg writes, "What I find there turns out to be inaccurate but harmless: Pettyfer was not approached by Ralph Lauren at a toy store when he was a little boy and made into a baby supermodel; while he did appear in two Burberry campaigns, he was never a model aspirant; and—my personal favorite, because it’s so ridiculously random— his family is not best friends with Channing Tatum’s. Beyond the Wikipedia entries, however, I see that in the weeks leading up to our photo shoot quite a few less-than-flattering posts about Pettyfer have shown up on the gossip blogs."
Whatever anyone's saying about Alex Pettyfer, be prepared to see him around a lot more because I'm sure he won't be going anywhere for a while.
