#AlexOLoughlin ….. I appreciate what I have.

I started at the bottom. I was washing dishes at this tiny restaurant, getting yelled at by the old Italian owner, to pay for the classes I was taking at night, learning how a camera worked and how to break down a script. That was a long time ago.

From there, it was a general progression. I became an extra, a background artist. I did a couple commercials as a background artist, then a couple commercials as a lead – so I worked my way up. But I’m glad I did it that way because I have an appreciation for what I have.”

The Upside of being #AlexOLoughlin

The upside of having an ‘O’ name?

“I have far less chance of getting pocket dialed since ‘O’ falls in the middle of the phone book,” says the Hawaii Five-0 star, 35. But since my first name starts with an A, I get pocket dialed anyway.”

#AlexOLoughlin …. the Outdoorsman from Down Under

“It’s tough getting in the business, but it’s even harder when you are from Down Under,” the outdoorsman says. “You just have to work hard and devote all your time to making it.”

#AlexOLoughlin …. sometimes one carry the load of success.

But more than that, I have a responsibility to myself, and that’s something that I think I neglected a little bit. Not in a careless way, but this is the first show that I have had that has succeeded. I think I felt like it was really on my shoulders, and I had some sort of Superman complex — I’m going to be all right; you can’t hurt me. But you can. I’m just like everyone else. Bang me around enough, eventually something’s going to break.

#AlexOLoughlin …… a stage of contentment

I’ve lived a lot of life, I think, for my age, and I’ve done a lot of the stuff that I’ve wanted to do, and there is plenty more for me that I am going to do. But at this stage the contentment that I get from just hanging out with the kids and at home, and my house is so beautiful.

I bought this fixer-upper that was built in ’52 and things are forever falling apart and not working. I forever have little things to do. I work on it myself and get help working on it as well. I can do some things. That’s the stuff that I really get off on. I love it more than anything.

My Thoughts

  • Of course this interview happened while Malia was still pregnant, and before Lion was born that October. I can just imagine that the contentment increased with the little guy’s birth
  • And it was also before they fully renovated the house themselves (with help) and added a new wing to it during hiatus 2015.
