In addition to posing shirtless for the magazine's new Australian issue, the 'Hawaii Five-0' star opens up about starring in the TV series reboot and leaving his homeland for America.
"Hawaii Five-0" hunk Alex O'Loughlin has gone shirtless for GQ Style Australia. In a photo spread for the newest issue of the magazine, the 34-year-old actor who plays Lieutenant Commander Steve McGarrett in the reboot series takes off his shirt to tantalize women on the land Down Under with a doze of his ripped physique and rugged look.
In the featured article, Jennifer Lopez's love interest in "The Back-up Plan" opened up about taking on the CBS show. "It's really important that if you're an artist involved in recreating something as iconic as this, that you find some way to step away from that," he said about being compared to the original show.
"First of all, there's a lot of fans of the old show and a lot of critics who are looking to get their teeth into us," he further elaborated. "And then there's also a lot of fans and friends of Jack Lord - who played the original Steve McGarrett - and I'm an Australian. So I can't think about any of that. All I can think about is doing my work, being true and honest within the character and trying to deliver on time."
Speaking of leaving Australia for America, Alex spilled, "When I first moved over here I was really, really nervous. It took me six years to settle into living in LA. I had my life together [in Australia], my niche and my friends. And I'm like, 'Wow, I'm up and moving to the middle of the ocean, to a small island where â�¨I don't know anyone.' "
