On the same night the actor arrived late at the Los Angeles screening of his movie, a fire broke out at his Beverly Hills residence.
After pushed back from its 2010 summer release, "Beastly" will finally arrive in the U.S. next week on March 4. To promote the film, lead stars Vanessa Hudgens and Alex Pettyfer have stepped out at a premiere at The Grove's Pacific Theater in Los Angeles on Thursday, February 24.
Both actors hit the red carpet solo with Hudgens wearing a purple strapless dress and Pettyfer donning a gray suit on top of a purple shirt. Also taking part at the special screening was Neil Patrick Harris who lands a role of Pettyfer's Kyle Kingson's blind tutor in the film.
On the same night Pettyfer promoted his film, a quite bad news came for him. A fire broke out at his home in Beverly Hills and a representative for his ex-girlfriend Dianna Agron confirms to Entertainment Tonight, "There was an electrical fire in the garage while no one was home. The house was not burned. No one was hurt."
The 20-year-old British actor came late to the special screening but it apparently had nothing to do with the fire. Instead, the "I Am Number Four" star blamed his tardiness on Los Angeles traffic.
Along with the premiere, two new clips from "Beastly" have been debuted online. One snippet sees Mary-Kate Olsen's Kendra Hilfert cursing Kyle into a grotesque monster and telling him the only way he gets his handsome face back is by finding someone who loves him. The other video features Kyle unveiling his ugly face in front of Hudgens' Lindy.
