Alex O’Loughlin – The Perfect Profile

When I first saw Alex, it was in ‘The Back-Up Plan’ on my TV screen in 2011, one of the things that caught my eye, was his profile. To me it was just perfect! :love:

And it was just one of the many reasons that got me interested in him…….. 😀

You can imagine my surprise when I first saw somebody suggest that Alex might have had some work done to his nose. Did I miss anything? For me his profile in ‘Oyster Farmer’ (the 2nd movie of him I saw), was just as beautiful as in ‘The Back-Up Plan’. To me there was no suggestion that his profile was any different. Why would people even think that? 😕

This study has been in progress for a long time and  I just want to share my ‘agony’ about it, because it has been the most difficult for me so far. Difficult, because I kept staring at pictures of Alex and not knowing which ones to use! 😛

All of us have our own favourite reason why we adore Alex. Some purely follow him for his acting. Others might just appreciate how gorgeous he is, but most of the fangirls we come across here, loves the full package……. 😀

202-nose

Some find his nose utterly erotic. Most probably because of those nostril flares we often see from Steve and definitely also Mick’s glorious sniffing in the Moonlight days. Alex himself thinks his nose is too “beaky” and he once said he regards it as his worst feature. Well I have some news for him – his nose is a big part of his profile and his profile is just plain PERFECT for me! :heart:

As I said earlier I have seen so many comments, searches and speculations about Alex’snose job“. Even some of my online friends regularly ask the question, wondering if there have been some small alterations done to his nose. But you all know me by now, whenever there is a question or a statement about Alex out there, my mission is to prove it as either correct or show it as false speculation – for me the outcome is not really relevant or important, but getting as close as possible to the truth, is. 🙂

Before I continue, I just want to emphasize again – I do not see any cosmetic work as either right or wrong. It is always the choice of each individual to do as they wish with their own body. For some it might be the best thing in the world to do, but for others the worst ……. So for me this is not about the judgement of cosmetic surgery, but about the facts that are visible to us. I love to clear up questions and speculation by finding the truth, without judging any actions.

pilot-bw-nose

So what is the most logical way to find if there has been any cosmetic work or alterations done to a nose? My suggestion in such cases is to take the earliest pictures and the latest pictures we can find of the person and compare them – that should give us the best answer about any possible changes. If there are differences, try to establish when the change took place.

But the key is always to compare pictures from the same angles and in the same type of conditions with each other (A classic case of comparing apples with apples and oranges with oranges). Different facial expressions (smiles, frowns etc.), lighting, slight changes in angle of the shot, make-up, body weight, scruff, wearing glasses and even photoshopping done on some pictures, can play tricks on what we see. 😐

What to look for?:

I am not an expert on nose jobs or cosmetic work at all, but common sense tells me that someone would do it to correct a ‘flaw‘ or something that they feel is an imperfection. Something that, when it is corrected, would let them look prettier or more handsome. They might feel that altering how that feature looks, will let it fit better with the rest of their features.

What are the things that people would ‘correct’ in most cases?:

  • When some part of the nose looks too big, they would like it to be reduced (I think the cases where it is seen as too small and needs to be enlarged are pretty rare) There are mainly three places on the nose that might be seen as too big – the size across the bridge of the nose, or the tip of the nose, or the size  of the nostrils.
  • The other ‘correction‘, would be to straighten the nose.
  1. The ridge of the nose, does it look as straight as before?
  2. The tip of the nose, does it look the same size as before?
  3. The size of the bridge across, is it the same as before?
  4. The area around the nostrils, does it show the same size?

We took pictures of Alex’s earlier characters and some of his latest and compared them – and this is what we see:

I think a way to explain why people would ever think that there had been work done, is to show how, with in a matter of seconds, his nose takes on different shapes and sizes. Here we show  Alex’s nose in one episode and show how it changes with different shots in a scene ……

Can you see how his nose sometimes seems to look different within a few different screencaps.

The picture of Alex as a barman from 2002, is one the earliest pictures available of him as an adult. Here we compared it to a few pictures from over the years – looks pretty similar to me ….. 🙂

My conclusion to all of these comparisons would be, that if a nose at present looks the same as a nose in 2002, then any pictures that might look different over the years, where just illusions of light, make-up, angle or some other reason that would make it look different to what we might expect ……

All I can say after this study, is that it is all just perfect. Not just the nose, but the lips, the jaw, the ears, the brows and the eyes ……… the Alex profile is PERFECT!

We hope you all enjoyed studying all the pretty so closely with us. After all, everything we do here, we do to have another excuse to look at Alex some more and to have more fun with him! :D

    Awesome study! I have seen the queries about his nose, too. But his nose, like his eyes, is so darned expressive, I’ve just always thought it looked different according to his mood and facial expression. Everything about his face is changeable and expressive. Part of his magic. 🙂

  5. I confess. I did say to FOYeur that his comic con pics make his nose look different to me. But it´s probably just the lighting creating the difference, cause even in his earlier pics, it looks perfect. And who would mess with perfection 🙂

  6. As far as I know the only thing Alex had done in relation to his nose is he had a mole removed from the end of it. Looks like the same nose throughout all those years! 😀

    Like

    • Yes, that one is part of the “moles & holes” study, because it did not alter any of the shape of his nose. (that mole can hardly be seen before the removal)
      I suspect there has been more than one little correction operation like that in connection with the moles and piercings.

  7. Whoa!! That I call a REAL intense study! You’re amazing, FOYeur! Well, I never thought of his nose as anything but his, it’s weird why anyone should think there have been any adjustments whatsoever.

  8. Nothing like some hardcore NoseP0rn to brighten my somber Sunday! FOYeur, you really outdid yourself with this one! I know you have been working on it, wanting to perfect it, and you certainly did just that! I am glad to know I am not alone in the adoration of his nose. Wow, That’s an understatement if I’ve ever heard one! 😆
    His nose is “perfectly imperfect” don’t you think? I agree with GNP about his nose being as expressive as his ever changing eyes. When he flares his nostrils, I get weak in the knees and when he, as Mick, sniffs…. my panties go “Poof!” and I go ((THUD)) 😛
    I have commented before about what his orgasmic nose does to me and where I’d like him to put it. *S&T* Starting with a sniff of my hair, brushing across my ear, down my neck, across my breasts, circling my hardened buds, following each pass with warm wet kisses. *shudder*
    I really need to get back to my other studies, but I will be back for more when I need another break. 🙂 Great job FOYeur!

    Exceptionally well done job to prove that perfection doesn’t need alteration – just different angles of adoration. Alex has a natural talent with the expressiveness of his face and his nose is no exception.

  17. Another awesome study – thank you, Foyeur! Your attention to detail is always amazing and your work on the pics since 2002 until today is very cool. I agree that his imperfect nose is perfect to us.Abd in Grace’s words ” Everything about his face is changeable and expressive. Part of his magic”. Probably he doesn’t realize that but is the way he conquers us all.

    Your work here also makes the argument that his hairline hasn’t changed as well (although you made that argument very persuasively in another blog post.) Excellent picture matching across the years.

  19. I know it’s a little late to comment but I couldn’t do it without the seriouness it deserves, firstable because everything about rhinoplasty passions me and second because I consider Alex has a beautiful perfect profile. Also I see that you FOYeur make these studies with such a dedication that I want respectfully give some others details that could support your thesis:

    1. The nasal cartilages continue growing during the all life, in a minimum grade of course but that’s why the elderly noses look more prominent than the youth ones.
    2. When a rhinoplasty is planned at least four nasal angles are measured in patients and you have given good photos showing them: the nasofrontal angle (photo with arrow No.1), the nasolabial angle ( same photo arrow No.2), the nasomental angle and the nasofacial angle. I ‘ve been studying old and recently photos and they are the same and it’s impossible perform a rhinoplasty without modify some of them.
    I also found out that Alex has others facial remarks points in perfect simetry, for example, his ear lobes are at the same level as the external eye angle, his chin is lightly behind his lower lip , if you trace down a line from the internal eye angle , you can see that his nostrils are inside of them and believe I can continue giving and giving more…..sigh!
    So, there is enough evidence that Alex has a perfect and untouched profile :o)…..

    • 7 years ago when I made this study, there were a number of fans on Twitter who kept suggesting that he had rhinoplasty. People look at pictures and make comments without really looking at what they see – then they make silly comments like that.
