Alex Pettyfer Thinks L.A. Is A "Shit Hole"

    Alex PettyferWait, who? Are we supposed to know who that is? If you do, then you probably saw Beastly or I Am Number Four and we've never met because I literally don't know a soul who saw either. Anyway, Us Weekly thinks Alex Pettyfer is relevant enough for an interview and, in addition to sharing he has a tattoo that reads "Thank You" just above his crotch ("in case I forget to say it"), Romeo had some choice words for our turf and the people who live here.

    Life must be different out here in Los Angeles from his motherland of Hertfordshire, England. How is he liking the L.A. life so far? (Keep in mind that he's British so imagine this being all spoken in the Queen's English.)

    "L.A. is growing on me a little bit, but it's still a shit hole. I think it's this insidious pool where nearly everyone lives in fear."

    Insidious. That's a pretty big word for a model-turned-actor, maybe we were wrong about him. So Petty, what else is going on in that skull of yours? Are you saying you don't like it out here??

    "Geographically it's fantastic, but socially it's disgusting. I wish they'd run all the cunts out."

    Obviouslyyyyy he's jealous. We don't really blame him. I mean, wouldn't you be kind of bitter if you starred in those two movies we can't even remember the names of? Has Hollywood gotten to you, Petty?

    "I really don't give a shit about any of that. I wish I had some interesting stories about living in L.A., but mostly I just do my work and then go home. Being an actor is like being in prison. You go, you serve your time, you try and replicate Johnny Depp's career and then you move to Paris."

    Whoa, whoa, calm down there, guy. Johnny Depp's career? You've been attempting to replicate that? You should probably rethink your game plan then because his first film was the hugely famous A Nightmare on Elm Street and your IMDB says you've been in this business for 6-ish years and I still have no idea who you are. And guess what? The c-words you referred to don't even care what you said about them not just because you're irrelevant, but also because we've been called worse and are conditioned for that and will still sing your praises because you're pretty if you ever star in something we MIGHT actually go see.
