Alex Pettyfer Becomes Beastly

Alex Pettyfer Becomes Beastly

Alex Pettyfer recently sat down to chat about his upcoming movie with Check out what the 19-year-old actor had to say about his transformation, Kyle and the fairytale:

On how this film is different from other Beauty tales: “It’s because it’s mostly from the beast’s perspective. You’re going through a journey with Kyle. And you go on this wild ride where Kyle kind of has to open his eyes see the beauty of life and fall in love with himself and who he is and that amounts to fall in love with others. And I think Daniel [Barnz] is an amazing director. I watched Phoebe in Wonderland and thought his vision was amazing.”

On becoming Kyle: “I went through a couple of challenges physically. I had to shave all of my goldilocks which was one of the hardest things for me mentally. And then physically I put on about 12 to 15 pounds [of muscle], because I’m actually quite a skinny guy.”

On shaving off his blonde hair: “I think when you have an image and you have been with that image for quite some while to change how you look can knock a person’s confidence. It really affected me because as soon as I shaved my head it kind of put me in this weird place, the same place [Kyle is in after his transformation] which really helped me with the role a lot. But at the same time, it kind of is a challenge because you are fighting personally with your own problems off set, but then onset you have a great resource to go to.”

Beastly hits theaters on July 31, 2010.

    I think it says “Embrace” on one and “Suck” on the other eyebrow.
    I think it’s a punishment of when he says that when when arrogant
    before his curse takes place.

    hahaha; I thought it was Arabic also; but it actually writes, ‘embrace’ on the right and, ‘suck’ on the other.
    The calligraphy in which they designed it reaally does look like Arabic.
