All this time we thought the set of Magic Mike, everyone’s favorite male stripper movie, was just a place of a lot of male bonding and pec flexing. But while Matthew McConaughey, Channing Tatum, Matthew Bomer and Joe Manganiello were off comparing their perfect abs, Alex Pettyfer was apparently romancing a certain female co-star, Riley Keough, a.k.a. Lisa Marie Presley’s daughter, a.k.a. Elvis Presley’s granddaughter. (We’re pretty sure that’s all printed on her business cards.) And now, six months later, these two beautiful specimens are engaged, a source confirmed to Us Weekly.
Congrats and also good job, both of you. Fresh off a couple of box-office disappointments (I Am Number Four and Beastly) Alex snags a role in a movie we refuse to believe will be anything but a masterpiece (even if we have to watch it on mute, we don’t care). And then he lands like, the equivalent of American royalty. Riley, a model whose acting career is just getting off the ground, lands a role that probably required a lot of very difficult staring at naked men and partying on the beach, and also walked away with a souvenir for life! We are totally objectifying both these actors, sorry. Magic Mike talk just does that to us.
