We see a very brief glimpse of Alex in the first official trailer for “The Butler” and you can watch it below.
No one can resist Betty White! The 91-year-old Golden Girls alum was the object of everyone’s affection at the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards presented by Ketel One Vodka on Saturday, April 20, in L.A. White and Magic Mike actor Alex Pettyfer, 23, took the stage together to auction off kisses to other guests, but Pettyfer couldn’t help stealing a quick smooch from the beloved star for free.
The duo entered hand-in-hand to a standing ovation from the crowd, which included stars like Charlize Theron, Darren Criss, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, and Drew Barrymore, who hosted the event. “I was going to say I’m ‘GLAAD’ to be here. But that would be corny,” White said after the applause had died down. “But when have I ever missed a chance to be corny? I’m GLAAD to be here.”
She then proceeded to pretend to hit on her 68-years-younger companion, as the audience erupted in laughter. At one point, after White voiced her support for marriage equality, Pettyfer turned to her and asked, “Betty, can I kiss you?” To which she replied, “Take a number.”
Indeed, the hunky I Am Number Four star was not the only one looking to lock lips with the actress on Saturday. Cloris Leachman bid $8,000 for a smooch from White.
“What kind of kiss?” the Raising Hope star asked the auctioneer, who replied that everyone was open-minded. “I may be open-minded, but I’m not ridiculous,” White joked.

Variety send word that Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde have been tapped to co-lead Universal Picture’s new adaptation of ’Endless Love.’ Though there was a book written by Scott Spencer in 1979, followed by a movie starring Brooke Shields in 1981, it is unknown how closely this film’s plot will mirror the previous versions. Shana Feste’s (Country Strong) is pegged to helm the film, while Scott Stuber and Pamela Abdy of Bluegrass Films and Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage from Fake Empire will produce. Tracy Falco will executive produce.
The project was reportedly highly sought after by several up-and-comers looking for a breakout role, and required a handful of test screenings before the final casting decisions were made. Others who tested for the leads included Brenton Thwaites, Sarah Bolger and Olivia Cooke. Alex Pettyfer was last seen in ‘Magic Mike’ and will appear next in ‘The Butler.’ Gabriella Wilde can be seen next in the Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore-starring ‘Carrie’ remake. The synopsis for Scott Spencer’s ‘Endless Love’ novel is as follows.
One of the most celebrated novels of its time, Endless Love remains perhaps the most powerful book ever written about young love. Riveting, compulsively readable, and ferociously sexual, Endless Love tells the story of David Axelrod and his overwhelming love for Jade Butterfield.
David and Jade are consumed with each other: their rapport, their desire, their sexuality, take them further than they understand. And when Jade’s father banishes David from the home, he fantasizes the forgiveness his rescue of the family will bring, and he sets a “perfectly safe” fire to their house. What unfolds is a nightmare, a dark world in which David’s love is a crime and a disease, a world of anonymous phone calls, crazy letters, and new fears—and the inevitable and punishing pursuit of the one thing that remains most real to him: his endless love for Jade and her family.
Published in 1979 and hailed as “one of the best books of the year” by the New York Times, Endless Love is the novel that first established Scott Spencer as “the contemporary American master of the love story” (Publishers Weekly).

With production expected to start soon on the feature adaptation of Divergent and the female lead already confirmed to be Shailene Woodley, fans of Veronica Roth’s young adult novel are anxiously awaiting word on confirmation for the male lead. Right now, it’s looking like Alex Pettyfer, Jeremy Irvine. and Lucas Till are going head-to-head.
The movie is confirmed to shoot in Chicago, which is where the story takes place; or rather, the story takes place in a futuristic/dystopian version of Chicago, where people are broken into five factions determined by their way of life. The story follows Woodley’s character Tris, as she chooses her faction and begins the training process in the hopes of securing a spot amongst them.
Variety posted word that Pettyfer, Irvine, and Till are all reading for the male lead later this week. They don’t mention the character by name, but I’m assuming they’re referring to Four, Tris’ instructor during her faction training, featured pretty prominently throughout the book.
Of the three guys in competition for the role, Pettyfer is probably the best known, with recent credits that include Magic Mike, In Time, Beastly, and I Am Number Four. I’m not sure I picture him as Four, to be honest, with darker hair and a few face piercings, it might be interesting to see him take on the part of Eric, one of the leaders of Tris’ faction.
As for Till, he could well have the edge on the other two actors, as apparently he’s already tested for the part. Among Till’s credits are Battle Los Angeles and X-Men: First Class, in which he played Havok. He’s got a distinctive look which sets him apart from the other two, in my opinion.
British thespian Irvine’s credits include War Horse and the role of Pip in Mike Newell‘s Great Expectations. He’s yet to wow audiences as an action-oriented heartthrob, as far as my knowledge of that sort of thing goes. But he’s certainly pretty enough for the part. Could he cut it as Divergent‘s knife-throwing radical?
