3 things you didn’t know about Alex O’Loughlin

From USA Weekend

Cooking. He cooks for company, and “people politely eat my food.” But when he’s alone, “I eat out more, just because it’s easy and you can do it pretty inexpensively.”

Surfing. He has learned how; the trick is when. “It’s dark when I leave and when I get home. I dream about the next wave I catch.”

Working out. That is something he has to find time for, because his shirt’s off a good bit during every episode as super-cop Steve McGarrett. He works out in his trailer, “where no one is. You feel like a bit of a [jerk] doing push-ups and pull-ups in front of everyone.”

  8. I LOVE ALEX O’LOUGHLIN aka STEVE MCGARRETT and I agree with the ladies on this one! STEVE MCGARRETT is HOTTTTT!!!! Im in love with him! Lol:D Every time I watch Hawaii five o i want to go and live in McGarrett’s house on the beach. I want to meet him and stay, get to talk and hang out with him for two or three weeks or all the time! I want a guy like him that can get do exactly what he does. That would be grrreeaattt if it was actually him!

  9. I had a dificult time in accepting that Danny let his brother go. The other thing is Dano is still in with Rachael. You definitely need to bring some committed love interest for both Steve and Dano. You can’t tell me since they are so cute that they stay home all the time.
    Love the show. I’ve had dreams about the show. Need to see more of their personalities. :love:

    1. Hey Barbara, Love your comment. First of all I think we need more stories about Steve, after all Alex is the star of the show. I’ve already seen enough of Danny’s background/family.

      You’d think that Katherine isn’t the only love interest in Steve’s life, him being a gorgeous single sailor, every girl in a port, there have to be others, especailly ones that are closer to home rather than on some ship in the middle of the ocean.

      We know that Chin Ho was engaged and we’ve met her, but again isn’t there anyone else. And what about Kono, a gorgeous girl like that without any love interests in her life….hmmmmm.

      I’m with you about thinking about this show as I also wake up thinking about it, or maybe I just wake up thinking about Alex. :heart:

  11. I never see him laugh… show any interest in women.. just that married bickering in the car.. yes he needs to surf and also canoe paddling is Hawaiian sport.. show should do more to respect native Hawaiians.. we do more than shoot people and steal stuff.

    1. Hey Mike, Elvis had the same effect on both men and women as Alex does. I think it’s wonderful that Alex has so many fans and the numbers are growing in leaps and bounds.

  14. I remember getting a glimpse of him in August Rush so I waited with baited breath for him to show up in Hawaii 5-0. I just purchased the Moonlight series. He’s beautiful… Thanks for the site. :heart:

  17. I agree about this week’s episode. It was not as good as the previous one. Too much Scott and not enought Alex for me, even though I like Scott, he’s not Alex. I thought the two story lines were hard to keep track of. And I agree he let his brother go? I will watch this show good or bad because I am a true Alex fan and I will watch anything he does, and this show is usually good but last night was just okayt.

  18. I was disappointed in
    last night’s 5 0…….WHY was Danny’s seeminly funny, loving. a nice guy…. towards his brother neice, then turn our to be a BAD GUY!!! And they let him escape his crimes…just like Chin didnt shoot his x=police brother. (not that that show wasn’t more understandable…)……. Come on…!!! You guys are getting way too out there with the violence and running around shooting everyone AND the show gave 3/4 of the scenes to
    Danny who I love, the very BIGGEST and best scenes. Alex hardly showed up in comparison. xD WHERE”S MY ALEX??? :love:

    1. I actually liked last night’s episode, even though less Steve than usual. I thought it was great that they showed them at the pool having dinner late into the night. It showed a side of Steve we haven’t seen before all that much–very playful and with friends–I kept watching this segment over and over (as well as the one when they confront the feds). And the scenes between Danny and Rachael were so touching. Anyone who thinks there is a bromance really going on instead of them just being really good buddies just has to watch the last couple of minutes of this episode. Danny didn’t go to Steve’s house–he went to Rachael’s.

  22. finally got Alex on British TV in H5o. Sunday nights are quiet in my house so I can drool and dream about the man. I have a photo of him in my purse so that everytime I get it out of my handbag I can look at the man. I let people think he is my love interest.!!!! Have been looking forward to H50 for long time and not disappointed . Nearly as good as Moonlight. I just love the man.!!!

    1. Hey Darlene!! I lived in Wahiawa and worked at Schofield! My ex was in the Navy–No–not a SEAL (LOL!). He worked at the ComSta north of Wahiawa. I’m headed for Oahu this Tues to stay with a friend in Kaneohe. I’ll be having my “Alex eyes” on the WHOLE time I’m there 😉 There are several places I plan to visit just to catch a glimpse of that HOT Alex :love:

  26. I saw nothing wrong with this episode. It was great as Alex always is. What a dream come true-a man that cooks. In addition to his beauitful body and his gorgeous looks he likes to be in the kitchen. I am glad he has learned to surf. Maybe during the summer if he gets time off he can go surfing. Wish I was luckly enough to met Alex in person. I guess I will have to settle for in my dreams. Love ya Alex, you roc.

  27. Alex is always the BEST! 3 things and other great hobbies, skills, talents that he’s doing, that’s all amazing. I and other fans are so proud of him. Alex, be the best and keep up your good and hard works in life :love:

    Reply
  28. Oh, Goddess, a man who cooks! Could it get any better than that? I would politely eat his cooking and when he wanted to eat out, I’d cook for him instead. He could do pushups and sit ups while I tossed the salad. 😉

  29. alex is georgous! has a great body, awesome arms (catch those veins popping out??) and if you check out his pictures from The Oyster Farmer, the guy is packing something serious below the belt!

    1. You should watch his movie FEED.

      Reply
      1. Nat, never had the chance to watch “Feed” yet. But did buy “Oyster Famer” on Amizon.com. Have watched it a number of times, like “Moolight”. I can’t get enough of Alex…. :heart:

    2. There was also a part of BUP that took my breath away. OH–and the part in White Out where he went frolicking in the snow in the buff! I had to play it in slow-mo to make sure it was Alex–there’s no denying those beautiful tattoos!! :p

  30. I AGREE WITH LUCY 🙂 ..I WOULD NOT MIND WATCHING HIM WORK OUT..I WOULD NOT MIND JUST LOOKING AT HIM SIT IN A CHAIR AND READ :love: ..HE IS THE HOTTEST AND SEXIEST MAN ON THE PLANET EVER :heart:

    1. I totally agree with you Tammy, he is soooo hot!! There is just something about him, that takes your breath away. I was just stunned from the first moment I saw a picture of him…

      Reply
      1. I agree with Tammy and Lisa. He not only takes your breath away, but I melt every time I look at his eyes. If he is that charismatic on film, I can’t even imagine what it must be like to meet him in person. Why didn’t film goers get that with The Back-Up Plan? There were only 20 million of those moments in the film!

      2. When I met Alex in LA last Sept., he was very sweet, happy, he was with Amber, but came over to thank me and Mary for the wine. :love: The one thing I noticed was how tall he really is. I’m 5’7″ and I know he’s 6’2″, he really towered over me, but he doesn’t look that tall on TV only next to Scott. It was a magic day for me. At SOTB last Sept. (before ( met him in LA) when he was signing the photograph I gave him, I asked him if he had looked at it, It was a photo of me standing in front of Jennifer Lopez in the poster of The Back-Up Plan. (My husband took it while he was driving me to the airport, on my way to LA last April for the premiere of the The Back-Up Plan.) He looked at it and gave this incredible smile and said “That is too cool”. I have a photo of him signing it, that was taken by the papps. Now that was TOO cool.

      3. YOU SHOULD COME BY MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL, THE LADIES MAKE SOME GREAT VIDEOS :woot: ..AND THERE ARE SOME HOT ONES 👿 .youtube.com/user/TheTammy1122.. 🙂 ..I AM ADDICTED TO THIS MAN 🙂 HE IS PERFECT :heart:

  31. I Wouldn’t mind watching him workout at all.I bet that man could do anything he wants.Loved the show this watched it twice on internet :heart: that man! :love:

    1. Although I thought the writing was particularly bad on this episode, I did enjoy the pawn shop scene so much that I played it back several times. That writing was great–between Steve, Dano and the pawn shop guy. And Alex did look especially cute, especially when smirking and smiling, usually to Dano after the pawn shop guy made a comment. We just need better writing all around–not just certain segments of an episode. Ditto on comment watching him work out!
