I didn’t watch Magic Mike yet but I don’t have to in order to know that I want the whole cast to give it to me. British actor Alex Pettyfer is a standout, and always has been, simply because he definitely has a unique look. You remember that raw handsome sexiness.

“I put on a bit of weight for this film. I started off at 169lb and went up to 196lb. They told me I was too big, so in the end I had to take it back down to 185lb. When you eat and train as a sportsman I found it very enjoyable. But at the same time, it was hard, particularly at the start and I still remember not wanting to be in the gym. That’s why I don’t want to train at the moment.”
