Before running his mouth, the “Magic Mike” star should probably hit the gym — just not the one at Muscle Beach

“Magic Mike” star Alex Pettyfer might want to pump some heavier iron before he shows his now heavily bearded face at Venice's Muscle Beach again.

TMZ posted a video Saturday of the “Lee Daniels‘ The Butler” star engaging in an argument with a few bodybuilders by the boardwalk.
