Alex Pettyfer Declares 'I Am Number Four' As This Week's Hump Day Hottie

It's hard to believe that someone as smoking hot as Alex Pettyfer could ever be considered a number lower than one, but as the star of this week's major movie release "I Am Number Four," the British babe is out for survival. He's set for a big year with multiple movie releases, which is why we're naming him this week's Hump Day Hottie.

Check out this video of Alex, and then keep reading for more details about him!

Vital stats: The 20-year-old English native got his start as a kid model—he posed for Gap after meeting fashion designer Ralph Lauren at a toy store. He later performed in plays and studied theater at Sylvia Young Theatre School.

Where you might have already seen him: He began building his resume in flicks like "Tormented," "Wild Child" alongside ex-girlfriend Emma Roberts, "Alex Rider: Operation, Stormbreaker" and "Tom Brown's Schooldays."

Why you should take notice of him now: He's set to star alongside his real-life lady love Dianna Agron in the sci-fi thriller "I Am Number Four." Next month, he'll play a hottie turned nottie in the long-simmering "Beastly" alongside Vanessa Hudgens. He's also tapped to star in "Now" and is in talks for roles in "The Mortal Instruments" and "The Seventh Son."

Until next week, when we choose another Hump Day Hottie, you can salute Alex by gazing at him in the video!
