#AlexOLoughlin – being Stan

“I have trained a lot for this role.

My only duty was to be beautiful”.

– Alex O’Loughlin

(about being Stan in ‘The Back-up Plan)

Vanity Fair (Italy)

May 2010


My thought:

Oh my dear Alex, I promise you, you were more than just beautiful!

  1. LOL! I protest! Duty implies obligation, often effort, sometimes self denial. You just had to be your usual beautiful self, you lazy man.

    Alex I’m sure was beautiful the day he was born. But he is so much more than that. There are lots of beautiful people. I’ve asked myself why nobody else does to me what Alex does. It’s his personality, his essence. What goes on behind his eyes–at least as much as we are permitted to see without knowing him personally. I think you could talk to Alex and never run out of things to talk about and never tire of listening to him.

    I think Alex enjoyed making a big time movie, and enjoyed JLo and Marc, but he’s always seemed a bit embarrassed by the part and the quality of this piece. I understand that. He’s way above this acting level. But he was pretty!

    SanDee, You said it so well! Alex is beautiful inside & outside. He’s not just another pretty face; he’s got substance.

  5. ITA SanDee. For years I’ve always shouted from the roof tops he’s more then just a pretty face and body. Yes he worked hard to give “them” the beautiful body they wanted for Stan, but this movie was just OK. If not for Alex as Stan I would have been bored to tears…or one and done. I saw a new side to Alex that newbies at the time weren’t aware of. He’s so good at morphing into any character given to him with such ease sadly he’s often underappreciated. ♥ But any character Alex plays get’s people asking “Who is this guy?” “Where have I seen him?” and new Forever Fans are born. ♥

    Alex merece voar mais alto!
    O que está a fazer agora está a desgastá-lo. As histórias não têm conteúdo, um fio condutor.
    Um desperdício de talento, versatilidade e beleza! 🎸🎶🍀
