Alex Pettyfer Net Worth $3.5 Million


The son of actor Richard Pettyfer and his wife Lee Robinso – now Ireland following her remarriage to Michael Ireland – with whom she has a son, James Ireland, who is Alex’s younger half-brother, Alex grew up in Slough, Berkshire, and was thrown into show business at the tender age of seven; he became a model for Gap, following an accidental meeting with Ralph Lauren in a toy store in New York. This launched his modeling career, and since then he has featured in a number of campaigns for several popular brands, which helped him overcome any possible stage fright.

Growing up, Alex became more focused on acting, and featured in several school plays, such as “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “The Adventures of Robin Hood” among others, while after he completed his GCSEs, Alex enrolled at the independent Sylvia Young Theatre School in London.

Alex’s on-screen debut came in 2005, when he was chosen for the role of Tom Brown in the television film “Tom Brown’s Schooldays”, for which he received positive critiques, encouraging him to further pursue his career. Following the successful debut, Alex secured the lead role of the teenage MI6 operative Alex Rider in the Anthony Horowitz-written film “Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker”, for which he received a nomination for Young Artist Award in the category Best Performance in an International Feature Film – Leading Young Actor or Actress; however, the film wasn’t very successful commercially, though it still increased Alex’ net worth.

In 2009 Alex starred in the horror comedy “Tormented”, directed by Jon Wright, and then in his most prominent role so far, as John in D. J. Caruso’s sci-fi action adventure “I Am Number Four”, which increased his net worth by a large margin, since the film grossed more than $145 million. Returning to the road of success, Alex continued with popular roles, including as Kyle in the fantasy drama “Beastly” with Vanessa Hudgens and Mary-Kate Olsen; the film earned over $40 million from a budget of $17 million, further increasing his net worth. Alex then appeared in the biopic about Cecil Gaines, “The Butler”, directed by Lee Daniels and starring Forest Whitaker and David Banner, which earned Alex nominations for an SAG Award, while also adding a considerable amount to his net worth. From there, Alex continued with the lead role in the romantic drama “Endless Love”, next to Gabriella Wilde, and Bruce Greenwood, which earned him the Jury Prize in the category Best Lead Actor at the Global Nonviolent Film Festival, while in 2016 he had a notable role in the comedy “Elvis & Nixon”, and most recently starred in the thriller drama “The Strange Ones” (2017). He is also working on the thriller film “The Last Witness”, scheduled for release late in 2018.

Regarding his personal life, Alex was in a relationship with actress Emma Roberts and has her initials tattoed on his right wrist. Also, he was engaged to actress and producer Riley Keough, the eldest grandchild of Elvis and Priscilla Presley.

Alex, often regarded as the next Brad Pitt for his stunning looks and even greater acting talent, made it to the lists of several popular magazines, including Company’s top 50 most eligible bachelors, and Glamour’s sexiest men on the planet.

Alex is a big fan of tattoos, and aside from his ex-girlfriend’s initials, he has several others, including a Celtic cross on his chest, and Tibetan script on the inside of his right arm, which translates to “What Goes Around Comes Around”, which can be found on his right shoulder.
