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.
