New funny #AlexOLoughlin to cheer us up :)

Got alerted to some new pics of Alex tonight, posted by ausraura1. And asked her about the origin, they were caps from a tiktok video by Bella, aka belskib ∗ that seems to be a relative. It was posted a week ago.

∗ (She is Isabella – Malia’s niece)

Wanted to share these cute faces, all caps by ausraura1 twitter, enjoy 😀



Ps. our video is edited from the original, muted the music in case of copywright and also the end is flipped to keep Alex facing us the right way 🙂

And yes, it is Spike at the back in the video.

#AlexOLoughlin & Jennifer Lopez on ET, talking about The Back Up Plan – Feb 2010

In February 2010, Alex and JLo did some Valentines promotions for The Back-Up Plan.

This was their interview with Kevin Frazier of Entertainment Tonight, at the time.


Kevin: How much fun was it making this movie? You kind of walked away from it for a second now, and you can look back. How much fun was it?

Jennifer: It was a lot of fun.

Alex: It was good.

Jennifer: It was …. We had a great time. I mean, honestly, I said many times, that it was one of the best experiences I had. Just the group of people. And the movie itself. It was ….there was …. there’s a lot of funny in the movie, so that always makes for a great day.

Kevin: Hmmm

Jennifer: And ah ….

Alex: You did say that a lot. You would regularly, most days, you would come to …. when you saw me, you would say it ….

Jennifer: Yeah [giggle]

Alex: Jokes aside … That was such a great experience.

Jennifer: It’s true.


Kevin: Was it the project ….. Did it turn out to be the project that you wanted after 3 years off? Did you …. Do you think people will say, “Ah, there she is. She’s back”?

Jennifer: I hope so. I mean, I would hope so. I mean, for me, personally, it absolutely was.

I love romantic comedies. I love doing them. I love watching them. And this was like the dream one, for me. You know what I mean. I also loved, after not doing a movie for, I don’t know, 2 and a half – 3 years.

Ah … ah …. I just … I just love the whole, new thing, that I was able to bring, because of having the babies. And the experience of that. And the fact that the subject matter of the movie, dealt with that was well. Like, being able to, you know, bring all of that experience to it.

Kevin: Does this move make you want to have more babies? [To Alex] Or does it make you want to have babies?

Jennifer: I want to have more babies.

Alex: Yeah … ah … yeah …

Kevin: [Laughing]

Alex: I’m trying to work out whether … I think it wants me to get married first, and then have babies. It … It’s made it  …. It made me realize how complicated this could be, if you did it backwards.

Jennifer: But that’s the thing you can  … It’s so funny you ask us that. But  …. That’s the whole subject of the movie. You can’t plan your life.

Alex: Right.

Kevin: Hmmm

Jennifer: And as much as you would like to. As much as you say, this is what I want to do,   … And is how I want to do it. And by this time. And it’s all going to be perfect.

It’s … that’s …. that’s not really, life. You know, that’s not how it is. And you have to just be willing to go with what happens.

Alex: I think the thing that it did … I mean,  we’re both parents. And I think the thing, for me …. ‘cos I just saw the film a couple of days ago. I think it’s great.

Jennifer: You saw it?

Alex: Yeah, it’s good. You’ve seen it.

You’ve seen it 50 times.

Jennifer: How funny is it though?

Alex:  You were editing it, right?

Jennifer: Nah-ah.That’s what I am trying to …

Alex: But it’s  …

Jennifer: If they would let me, I would.

Alex: It’s … It’s really funny. I went  …. I drove to the Orange County …

Jennifer: It’s really funny.

Alex:  ….. and saw it with a real audience and … a Non-Hollywood audience. ‘Cos I wanted to just see how … and they loved it. They’re like … I was …. I couldn’t believe how …. how much they loved it.

Jennifer: It’s funny.

Alex: And I loved it too.

Kevin: Did anybody catch you?

Alex: No! They snuck me in … and Maggie Schmit pulled me in.

Jennifer: They sneak you out through the kitchen.

Alex: And the snuck  …. through the kitchen, and ….. you know.

Jennifer: [Giggles]

Alex: I think, that the thing …. like despite all the madness that these characters go through, and … and everything is upside down, and back to front. And they try to work everything …….  Once the kids arrive … I mean I think, one of the big things in this movie is …. is it shows how, once children come into your life,  everything is put in perspective.

And as a person, whether you’re a father of a mother… you know, kids, you realize why we are here on a fundamental level. And for the first time, despite yourself, you will love another person, more than you love yourself. I mean, that’s what kids sort of do.

Kevin: Hmmm … hmmm

What is there about her that surprised you?

Alex: Probably that, she was so …. she’s … 3rd person, she is right next to me.

Probably that you were so down to earth, you know, living in this kind of  … bubble of iconic fame that you exist in. Which I did not know anything about. I don’t know, I … I don’t have that.

I come from … I just ….. I don’t have that. My life is very different … and so … I guess not living in that … we all have different ideas about what it’s like for other people in different circumstances. But just ….

Jennifer: He expected me to be really weird.

Alex: No, it’s not true

Jennifer: [Laughs] Normal.

Alex: No is such a ..

Jennifer: Semi-normal.

Alex: No, no … but I  don’t think I did  …. I didn’t expect.

Jennifer: Whatever normal is?

Alex: We met at your house and we hit it off.

Jennifer: Yeah.

Alex: I don’t think I put anything on it, in the beginning. So it was just a series of …. .

Jennifer: But you have those preconceived notions …

Alex: No, but I did not have that many.

Jennifer: Yeah. That’s good.

Alex: But you …. When I went to ….. when I went to Jennifer and Marc’s house to meet them, before we all agree to do the picture. I was at the house and …. and … one of the … I guess your maid or … or someone like, let me through the house. And I hadn’t met them yet. And they … and they took me and sat me in …. What do call that room? Like den of something?

Jennifer: The office.

Alex: The office. And it’s beautiful … beautiful, everything. But it’s just wall to wall, like Platinum Records, of them both. And I was like, you know ….

Jennifer: [Laughing]

Alex: It was just like, ….. this power couple!

Kevin: Would you guys do something together again?

Jennifer: Yeah, I would

Alex: Work wise? I thought you meant …. you were going to ask if there is something right now …


Well, what am I going to say? … “Not really”… [Laughing]

Jennifer: [Laughing]

Kevin: In three years, when you look like ….

Alex: Absolutely.

Actually, I was watching this movie the other night and at the end … Diana, my assistant, was with us, and we walked out and she was like, “That’s begging for a sequel”.  And I was like …

Jennifer: [Laughing]

Alex: …. really?

Jennifer: Like that?

Alex: Yeah, and then …

Jennifer: With the kids and all ….

Alex: Absolutely, I’d love to.

[Alex & Jennifer High Five]

Jennifer: High five.

Kevin: Advice for couples for Valentine’s day?

Jennifer: I don’t know what we’re going to do this year?

Kevin: Really?

Jennifer: I don’t know what we are doing. Haven’t … honestly, I haven’t even thought about it. I have no advice for couples, on love. You know.

Kevin: [Giggle]

Jennifer: I always feel like I’m still figuring everything out. I go day by day with my thing.

#AlexOLoughlin, Sophia and Jason at Fangoria – April 2008 (Transcript)

Some years ago we posted an article that covers most of what is said in this video, but it is always great to actually see the actors on stage, doing their thing.

We do not know who took this video, or who it belonged to. I found it saved in my old files and could no longer find the original copy online.

According to the iF Magazine article, which we posted a long time ago, the panel was moderated by  Anthony C. Ferrante


Jason: Yes, I think it’s been addressed in the next episode coming up.

Alex: It is the next one.

Jason: Just a bit, yeah.

Alex: You see, I don’t remember what we’re shooting from one day to the next.

Jason: Yeah, he works like 20 ….. just unbelievable, twenty-hour days. It’s unbelievable. Both of these guys. I work 5 hour days, so …

Question: How many episodes do you have left for the rest of the season? There’s 2 or 3?

Jason: We just wrapped yesterday. And yeah, we have 3 more episodes to show.

Questions: Okay, so what are we going to see on the next three episodes, in terms of this evolution and what is going on? Are there more standalones, or will there be more mythology driven?

Alex: Well, they are more standalones, because you have to understand that logistics we haven’t been given a second season pick-up. And so like, until .. as filmmakers, you know as television .. makers of television series and that kind of thing [mumbling].

Okay…. ah … no … we … we cannot afford to start something that we are not going to be able to finish. It just wouldn’t …. like, we’re not prepared to do that, you know. And so until they give us that that pick-up, we can’t really do any arcs and we can’t ….. you know. So, we’ve had to do four pretty much standalone episodes. But they are really good standalone episodes.

And there is, the arc that is … will always be there is .. is the … is the arc between Mick and Beth. And so that sort of .. that comes to an interesting close .. and you know, that moving forward in 16.

Question: They’ve killed off a lot of your … your close people, on the show, Sophia. Yeah, and then again, the …. going really quickly – I think by Episode 3, you’re totally accepting that he’s a vampire. It seems like a tricky thing, you know. Having to take this person who is kind hard news and kind of logical person, and then have to be thrust into this world. It must be an interesting dance as an actress. As how much you can accept and how much … kind of … have to … how weird this is?

Sophia: I think, you know for Beth – she’s fallen in love with his soul. And the fact that he’s a vampire is, you know, secondary to her. And …. I actually think that he gets his contacts and his fangs – I always find him more sexy in that looks. So.. it works for me

Alex: Yes, she always makes passes at me once I am coming out of make-up.

Sophia: Here we go again.

When I’m kind of ready to go. And sort of ready to go, and she’s sort of leaning against the trailer, “Hey Alex! What you doing?”. I’m like, “We’re going to do the thing. Going to do the scene” And she says, “Oh. How are you?” and I’m, “How are you?” and she says, “Good. You wanna get a cup of tea somewhere?” …….. “Not really”

[Everybody laughing]

(We think these pictures were taken by somebody named Wendie.)

Question: This is for any …. any one of you. One of the things …. I’m curious, my favourite episodes is the mythology driven stuff and it’s the vampire’s stuff.

Alex: Mine too.

Question: And again throughout the 12th episodes, the ‘Mortal Coil’, or whatever the title of that one was, right before this one …

[The audience correcting him about the name of the episode – “Mortal Cure”]

Question: Thank you – ‘Mortal Cure’.

It was … There was a lot of the procedural stuff. And I know CBS loves the procedurals. You, know, they like to have that handle on the things.

But I think the genre fans, and I’m sure you guys agree, you know, that the  driven mythology and stuff that makes these shows work. So I’m curious, what …. which do you think works best for the show, in your own opinion? And what are some of your favourite episodes?

Jason: I want to say, real quick, that I think Alex kind of introduced the idea of the bloodlines, and that sort of thing. Which I think is some of the most interesting stuff in the story. You will see more of that coming up,  we’ve kind of have like, in the last episode, we have like a vampire conference.

And we kind of get together … and there’s a problem that comes up, that kind of threatens the survival of the vampires. And they kind of all deal with it in their different ways. In their different levels in the social spectrum, or whatever. And so you’ll see some interesting stuff coming up on that.

But I like the vampire stuff, when it gets into that. But your so good with the procedural stuff and I think that’s a good blue line for the show. But every time we get away to the bloodlines and that sort of thing, I think it’s very interesting.

Question: How’s your new boss .. you’ve got a new boss at Buzzwire, now right?

Sophia: We’ll I get … I have the new boss, but she leaves, because Buzzwire is very tabloidy and that kind TMZ thing, and Beth is not interested in any of that sort of stuff. So, she’s more interested in the hard-hitting journalism. And she gets on to a new job quite soon. So, yeah….

Questions: Very cool. I want to take questions from the audience now. So. …


Some of the fan pictures taken on the day.

Unfortunately, we do not know who any of them are.
