Alex Pettyfer Channing Tatum

The 25-year-old starred in the 2012 film but didn't return for the sequel, Magic Mike XXL, which was released earlier this year (15), and in a podcast chat with writer Bret Easton Ellis, Pettyfer insists Channing doesn't like him, because he didn't represent himself correctly on the set of the first movie.

"I was scared to speak," he recalled. "I actually did my work and I sat in the corner and listened to music because I had been told anything I did was wrong by my reps. I was very insecure as a human being. That also gave me a bad rep because everyone was like, 'Alex doesn't speak because he thinks he's better than everyone else'.

"That's not true. I was just generally nervous and scared to be myself. I was in character."
