Since British actor Alex Pettyfer recently burst onto the US scene with his roles in films like I am Number Four and Beastly, he hasn't necessarily set the best image for himself.

Pettyfer has done many things that have led to speculation about him in the press, but his recent interview with VMAN Magaizine just might top the list!  Read on to find out more about Alex's very profane, but revealing interview!

In the interview, Pettyfer embraced the fact that he is known as a 'bad-boy' in Hollywood, but the thing is, he didn't seem to care all too much about the negative press!

"I've heard I've been called a bad boy, or difficult," the 21-year-old said. "Maybe that's because I don't take any bull****."

Pettyfer, who was previously linked to his I am Number Four co-star Dianna Agron also had a lot of negative things to say about Los Angeles, a city he should be becoming very familiar with if he wants to stay put in America!

"I think [L.A] is this insidiuous pool where nearly everyone lives in fear," he explained.  "Geographically it's fantastic, but socially, it's disgusting."

Previously, The Hollywood Reporter revealed a lot of surprising facts about Pettyfer, like his demanding attitude on the set of I am Number Four when he found out another co-star was making more money than he was, and how he missed out on mutliple marketing meetings during the production of Beastly.  However, it seems that, according to those who work with him, his acting may just outweigh his attitude.

"Pick your words: ambitious, hungry, cocky, very ahead of himself," a producer who worked with Pettyfer said to THR.  "But if he delivers, he'll be worth it."
