In May 2008, Alex appeared in TV Guide’s Sexiest Stars issue. He needed to do a photoshoot to get his picture for this issue.
This is a video taken at this shoot.
And of course, the question was – what makes you feel sexy?
Alex: What makes me feel sexy?
Oh, I don’t know.
Comment: That answer in a bit. And the more important question would be, who is this sexy male TV star?
Australian import, Alex O’Loughlin, is the lead of CBS’s vampire detective drama, Moonlight.
Alex: I think that the person you are with makes you feel sexy, you know. Like my girlfriend. You know, I mean being adored by someone else makes me feel sexy.
Comment: With his newfound fame, this Aussie hunk isn’t letting it get the best of him.
Alex: My exposure to the general public has definitely risen, ‘cos so much …. so many more people know my face now. So, I guess it kind of changes a bit. It hasn’t changed the way I think.
The Photographer for the photoshoot was Rodolfo Martinez

And this is what co-star Sophia Myles had to say for the article:
“I’m immune to Alex’s hotness. I see more of him than of any boyfriend I’ve ever had. I’m very privileged because of that, but since I see him so much, I’ve overdosed on his hotness. It’s just the norm.
But other people become weak in the knees around him. They start blushing. They drool. He has that Johnny Depp thing, a special sparkle that’s just magic. How do you define it? The young girls love him, the older ladies love him, and the gay guys love him.
He’s really good at expressive movement and loves musical theater. He’s also up there with the greatest comedians I’ve ever known. I go home with stomach pains from laughing so hard. It’s constant. He’s kind of crude.
English and Australians have a great connection when it comes to humor, and we can be outrageous. You couldn’t put some of it in print. Americans don’t know what to do with us, but I like that.”
