WATCH: Alex Pettyfer and Jimmy Kimmel Sing ‘Endless Love’
On the show Jimmy Kimmel cozied up with Pettyfer as the pair crooned the iconic tune “Endless Love” for a taste of romance, right before Valentine’s Day. Paying tribute to the famous duet, Pettyfer took on the role of Diana Ross and Kimmel was Lionel Richie.
Pettyfer said that he doesn’t make conscious decisions to appear in any specific genre of a film, a traditional romance is something he’s always wanted to do.
“It’s not about any genre for me, it’s more about the subject matter, reading a script and seeing what’s appealing,” Pettyfer said in a recent interview. “I love romantic dramas. I love films like ‘Love, Actually’ and ‘Bridget Jones’s Diary.’ So when ‘Endless Love’ came along, I was really inspired to make a romantic film. The way the filmmakers wanted to tell the story was so original. As an actor, doing a remake is sometimes the kiss of death, but this film has really turned out fantastic and I’m so proud of it.”
