Though it looked like Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer got along really well in “Magic Mike,” it appears to be a different story in real life.
While chatting with controversial best-selling author, Bret Easton Ellis on his podcast, Alex Pettyfer revealed that he didn’t exactly have a great time working on “Magic Mike.”
“Channing Tatum does not like me,” says Pettyfer. “For many reasons. Many being my own fault.”
It was attributed to the guy who didn’t like him, which was his co-star and producer, Channing Tatum. Alex recalls:
“I was scared to speak. I actually did my work, and I sat in the corner and listened to music because I had been told that anything that I do was wrong by my reps. […] I was very insecure as a human being. That also gave me a bad rep because they said, ‘Alex thinks he’s fucking better than anyone else because he doesn’t speak to anyone.’ That’s not true. I was just genuinely nervous and scared to be myself.” This was reported by foodworldnews.com
What exactly were the problems with Channing Tatum? E! News explains:
“However, the problems that arose with Tatum apparently stemmed from an outside matter that involved renting a New York apartment from Channing’s friends. Pettyfer and his then-fianc?e Riley Keough moved out shortly after renting the pad because Alex allegedly couldn’t breathe due to what he believed was mold and dust in the apartment.”
Pettyfer received a “very negative email” from Channing Tatum that quoted: “Don’t f-k my friends. You owe money. Pay the f-king money. Don’t be a clown.”
During that time, Alex Pettyfer was also coping with the death of his own cousin. He explains: “I really took that the wrong way, which I shouldn’t have. And emailed him back saying, ‘I’m in a negative headspace, can you respect me for a moment?’ And I just got hounded through this time of grieving for money.
The foodworldnews.com reported, in case you’re wondering, Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer still haven’t patched things up. When they had to do re-shoots, Tatum allegedly already “told everyone he didn’t like me.”
The site further added that Pettyfer doesn’t seem to hold any ill feelings for the “Step Up” star, saying that he was the one “who made the poor decision.”
Alex Pettyfer net worth is approximately $3.5 million.
