I don’t think Tom Brady’s latest spread for VMAN, or Tim Tebow’s armpitty pics for GQ, are any kind of special effort on the part of the NFL to draw in new female or gay viewers. A) Wrong publications, and B) that’s a terribly sexist thing of me to say, as I know plenty of women and gay men who love the game. BUT, these sexy shots do go a long way in making me, a non-football fan, begin to see these men as more than the padded-up, grunting things they appear to be on the field. Even when Brady’s doing his best to imitate a Doberman pinscher. Because in the interview accompanying his cover story for the men’s fashion mag, he melts my New Yorker heart with this quotes (via E!):
“I grew up [in] … an environment where people weren’t afraid to express how they really felt or to express their emotions. I’m very blessed to be able to do that because with my two boys — I kiss them a thousand times a day.” Awwww. Now tell us about Giselle’s pregnancy already! Why are you pretending that she suddenly has a beer gut? Still not ready? OK, at least he said he wants to have four kids (doing his part for the gene pool!), and he really does look good in that tux.
Poor Alex Pettyfer. Everyone’s got the Brit boy wrong! He doesn’t have a tattoo which says “Thank You” above his crotch. He doesn’t think that L.A is a “s—t hole.” He doesn’t want to “run all the c—ts out.” The article which got all these alleged quotes — VMan — got it all wrong, guys! The actor was at the Hugo on Greene Street party at the Hugo Boss store in New York on Tuesday night and had a little chat with E! about how he didn’t really run his mouth off (*snort*). Of his damaged reputation. Pettyfer said, “You know everyone thinks it says ‘Thank you.’ It says my name, ‘Alex.’ It’s boring. He [the writer of the story] said that, not me.”
We’re a little confused! Did the writer say “It’s boring” or did he just go ahead and make up “Thank You?” We’ve heard of taking liberties, but if such a big misquote was given, Alex’s people should have swarmed in the second the interview was in print. Or perhaps this is all one big backpedaling exercise considering Alex’s movies haven’t exactly been box office gold, and he can’t afford to be the biggest diva this side of Mariah Carey! He continued his reformative act by saying, “I love New York. I love L.A., too. I love both places. I don’t think I was so much misquoted but misunderstood.” That’s when his publicist chimed in with, “The most misunderstood boy in America,” helpfully providing us with our headline! Alex, you’re hot and we’ll totally go to see you play a stripper a la Channing Tatum in a movie, but we aren’t buying the whole “you guys just don’t get me” act.

It isn’t very often that the crÃƒÂ¨me de la crÃƒÂ¨me of society reveals what’s really going on under their top hats, especially when it comes to junk tattoos! Given, we’re assuming, between trips to the haberdashery and the stables, I am Number Four star Alex Pettyfer’s interview in VMan reveals that actor has the words “thank you” inked into the skin above his crotch. “In case I forget to say it,” Pettyfer jovially explained. How wonderful! We can’t imagine why Dianne Argon broke up with Pettyfer when he is such a class act. How she must be crying into her pillow still!
The Beastly star also graciously shared his thoughts on his current city, and the very business that is currently making him a wealthy man. “L.A. is growing on me a little bit but it’s still a s–t hole. I think it’s this insidious pool where nearly everyone lives in fear. Geographically it’s fantastic, but socially it’s disgusting. I wish they’d run all the c–ts out,” he explained to America’s collective delight, later explaining “Being an actor is like being in prison. You go, you serve your time, you try and replicate Johnny Depp‘s career and then you move to Paris.” We have no doubt Alex will perfectly replicate the long and illustrious career Depp took decades to build, or he’ll be a hot dog vendor with a wiener tattoo.Ã‚Â Either way we’re sure he’ll be thrilling any and every woman who comes his way.
