Hey Everyone!
My fellow Hawaii Five-0 fans & Alex O'Loughlin fans, I have the scan and interview of him in the new issue of Womens Health Magazine.
Thought the questions and his answers were cute so I wanted to share this with you.
Enjoy!! :)

--- --- ---

5 Juicy Questions for Alex O'Loughlin
The Hawaii Five-0 star gives the details

1. Since your job is very physical, how do you chill out?
I live in Hawaii, and the trails and mountains here are just magic. Surfing and trail running chill me out. I like reading too. And playing my guitar—I wish I were better.

2. Finish this sentence: A woman looks hottest in…
A sarong and my T-shirt—that's pretty good. But I love her dressed to the nines too. Guys want to see the diversity of beauty.

3. What would you consider to be the secret to a successful relationship?
(Laughs) I was hoping you were going to give me some tips! OK, look, it's so cliche, but it's true: honesty and communication. And a good sex life.

4. What still boggles your mind about women?
There have been many times when I thought I was having a logical discussion with a woman, and then I'm left sitting alone, confused, trying to recount how it went down. You guys are so much smarter than we are.

5. You just won yourself even more female admirers. How do you know when you're really into a woman?
When I am really into a woman, the way I look at other women changes. The other women on the planet kind of fade away. And the majority of my energy goes to that person. I'm a very attentive lover.

Fast Talk

Shower song?
All my songs are shower songs. I have a terrible voice. But I'd say "Johnny B. Goode."

Boobs or butt?

Ideal superpower?

Pet peeve?
When people drink the milk and don't buy new milk.

What do you sleep in?
