Images of a shirtless 21-year-old Alex Pettyfer in VMAN magazine have hit the Internet.

The I Am Number Four star, an ex of Glee's Dianna Agron, got the web talking yesterday when quotes from the interview were released.

Pettyfer told the mag he has a crotch tattoo that reads "Thank you." It can be seen in the photos.

His explanation? "In case I forget to say it," he said while winking.

Pettyfer also showed disrespect for the city and industry that are making him famous. He called Los Angeles a "s***hole."

    "Geographically it's fantastic, but socially it's disgusting. I wish they'd run all the c***s out."

Pettyfer even had the nerve to complain about his success.

    "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."

The Brit also said he hates red carpets and press. So, you know, it makes total sense that he gave an interview like this and posed shirtless.

What do you think? Does Pettyfer's bod make up for his comments?
