We access the movie at a point where he’s already a little bit in love with Jade.There's nothing we enjoy more than one of our favorite hot guys getting all cute and cuddly to talk romance, so we are loving Alex Pettyfer's latest chat with Cosmopolitan, where he spills all the details on his perfect date.Magic Mike hunk Alex Pettyfer is rumored to be baring all for a more mature audience of one these days.
In this re-imagining of the 1981 film Endless Love (starring Brooke Shields and Martin Hewitt), David Elliot (Alex Pettyfer), the working-class boy from a troubled background, falls for the beautiful Jade Butterfield (Gabriella Wilde) and attempts to prove to her privileged family that he is worthy of her love.
When her father (Bruce Greenwood) does everything he can to keep them apart, their love affair becomes reckless, as they give in to their passion.
During a press conference to promote the film, actor Alex Pettyfer talked about finding the right tone, his favorite romantic films, making this version more accessible for audiences, how secure he is about approaching women, working with this cast, how awkward kissing scenes are to shoot, what he remembers about his own first love, and that he’s currently unemployed but auditioning. Collider: How did you strike the right balance in tone for a romantic film, and what are some of your favorite romantic films or romantic comedies?
My favorite romantic comedies are Love, Actually and Bridget Jones. And it’s a very scary thing for anyone to act like a child and have those innate feelings that come to you.
And Shana [Feste] was great, guiding me with all of that. In the original film, David was a little more unstable, there was some volatility to him, and he was not this wonderful guy.
