Happy Birthday To My Fake Boyfriend
Alex Pettyfer, still my fake boyfriend after all these years, celebrates his 23rd birthday today. Despite what the tabloid media reports, he has been in a loving relationship with actress Riley Keough for well over a year. (I try to not hold a grudge.) He will next appear, along with the starriest of all-star casts in Lee Daniels' The Butler, a film that will either be cleaning up at the Oscars next year or a complete trainwreck. In May he will begin filming the lead role in a remake of the eighties schlock classic Endless Love. I must admit that I don't quite know what to make of this. The original film was based upon a very highly regarded novel, but was... how do I put it... not good. So, we'll see how this goes.
