I Am Number Four's Alex Pettyfer made his US talk show debut today on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to chat about his new film and how much he enjoyed working with his costar, Glee's Dianna Agron. The duo are also a couple in real life, though Alex played it coy when Ellen asked about their romantic status. Ellen did, however, get Alex to remove his button-down and show off his impressive abs. Alex is a relative newcomer to the scene in Hollywood, but we always love a good shirtless sighting. So, tell us what you think of Alex's ab-bearing moment — totally hot or not really your thing?
Good-looking aliens, anyone? In our first look at I Am Number Four, the sci-fi flick written by James Frey, the preview offers up chiseled British newcomer Alex Pettyfer. Though you may recognize him from the trailer for the teen romance Beastly, his costar is a little more familiar to the BuzzSugar reader: it's Glee's Dianna Agron. Agron plays the human love interest to Pettyfer's alien character, the titular number four who's on the run from enemies who wish to kill him. His hiding spot? Ohio.

I'm so very confused about this trailer for Beastly. It's kind of campy at first, dramatizing the personality of its douchey protagonist named Kyle (Alex Pettyfer), as he dismisses everyone in his high school who's not as good-looking as he is. Things really go over the top with the addition of an, um, teen witch in Mary-Kate Olsen, who curses him with ugliness, purring that he has a year to find someone to love him in this form.
Vanessa Hudgens is the substance-over-style outcast he connects with, and it's all very Twilight, but then a blind Neil Patrick Harris shows up. Say it with me: "Bwhaaa?" Apparently NPH is some sort of tutor, and I don't know if this makes the movie look better or not. Then, they pull out their trump card: emotive Death Cab for Cutie classic "Transatlanticism." It gives a false sense of depth to a film that I fear may need a little help in that area. I do tend to enjoy melodramatic romance, though, and maybe I'm looking a little too critically at Beastly. Anyway, to decide for yourself and see the trailer, just read more
