Look, I love this show. This show is my job. This is my show. I like doing more work than anyone else connected to the show. I have from the beginning, and I will to the end. This is my life, and it’s all I have. I don’t have time to go do films. I don’t have the luxury of gaps in my schedule so I can go and do passion projects. I miss that, but I’m fully committed to Hawaii Five-0 and I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity I’ve been given.
I get really mad when I’m misquoted. I try to be honest with the press. I don’t give one-word answers, and I like to say what I think. I’ve got a bit of a sense of humour. But when I’m misquoted and painted in a certain way, it makes me not want to do press. I’m ferociously protective of this show, so I would like to meet that journalist again on a carpet.

Link to the original article where Alex was misquoted:
You can read my thoughts and comments on both the articles at the bottom of each one. As well as the video transcript of the original interview.
You will see that it was mostly other people with comments and making up their own articles afterwards, who took the original article further and out of context.
