Tell us allll about your feelings, Alex and Channing. Why don’t you take of your shirts while you’re at it?
There were some little nagging rumors that my fave washboard hotties Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer don’t exactly get along on the set of Magic Mike, but Mr. Rockhard Alex is finally spilling about their feud to Bret Easton Ellis during Monday’s installment of his podcast, which confirms that this things for REAL.
“It’s true. Because Channing Tatum does not like me — and for many reasons [and] many being my own fault.”
The 25-year-old claimed he got a bad rap because he was super insecure during the shoot, and not because he thought he was a greater thespian or tanner or something:
“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 anything I did was wrong by my reps. I was very insecure as a human being. That also gave me a bad rep because everyone was like, ‘Alex doesn’t speak because he thinks he’s better than everyone else.’ That’s not true. I was just generally nervous and scared to be myself. I was in character.”
He apparently crashed with one of Tatum’s friends and then didn’t pay rent, too.
“All of a sudden I got a very negative email from Channing — rightfully so — saying, ‘Don’t f*ck my friends. You owe money. Pay the f*cking money. Don’t be a clown.’ And I really took that the wrong way, which I shouldn’t have, and emailed him back and said, ‘I’m in a real negative headspace and can you respect me for a moment and blah, blah, blah.’ And I got hounded through this time of grieving for money.”
However, Alex did appear to take on the blame when he was telling this story:
“By the end of it I just said, ‘F*ck them, what is money when life is so much more. I’m not paying.’ And I should have just paid. I think he was looking for an excuse to not like me.”
Well, sounds like he didn’t need to look TOO HARD. What do you think about this hottie rivalry?
