He is best known for his roles in "I Am Number Four" (February 18, 2011), a science fiction action adventure movie and Beastly (march 4, 2011), a modernized retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Pettyfer was born in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, the son of Lee Ireland (née Robinson), a former model, and Richard Pettyfer, an actor. He has a younger half-brother, James Ireland, a junior tennis player, from his mother's re-marriage to Michael Ireland, a property developer. Pettyfer has seven tattoos, including a Celtic cross on his chest, Arabic script on the inside of his right arm, the words, "What Goes Around Comes Around" on his right shoulder, a Kanji script on his lower waist, and the letters "ER," the initials of his now ex-girlfriend Emma Roberts inside interlinking hearts on his right wrist. When Contactmusic asked him about the "ER" tattoo he said "I don't know how to say it, she's a lovely, lovely girl, we had a spell of something that is over now, but we're on good terms. She's beautiful, she's great; we're really good friends." The actor had gotten Roberts' name tattooed on his wrist while the two were dating.
"I'm going to get asked about this, aren't I? I thought it was just between me and her," he said when asked about the tattoo. He is now dating Glee star Dianna Agron, after being set up by their director on the film I Am Number Four, in which they both star. Read more on Last.fm.
