Alex O'Loughlin Covers 'Men's Fitness' August 2011

Hawaii Five-0 star Alex O’Loughlin shows off his toned arms on the cover of Men’s Fitness magazine’s August 2011 issue.

Here’s what the the 34-year-old Australian actor had to share:

On loving workouts outside of the gym: “I much prefer being in the canyons or the hills or the ocean – being outside and using the resistance of the earth and gravity and my own body weight. I’d rather hang from trees and do pull-ups than be in a gym, surrounded by people in Spandex.”

On keeping his mind clear with exercise: “[Attention deficit disorder] went diagnosed and I managed to keep it hidden, but it caused me a lot of frustration. When I stopped being cerebral and became physical, my mind cleared. That’s probably why I like to be so active. It’s a huge part of the balance of who I am.”

Alex O'Loughlin: 'Emmy' Cover with 'Hawaii Five-0' Cast!

Alex O’Loughlin and his Hawaii Five-0 co-stars, Grace Park, Daniel Dae Kim, and Scott Caan, hit the cover of emmy‘s “For Your Consideration” issue.

Here’s what the cast had to share with the mag:

Alex on his character, Steve McGarrett: “This character is a cool cat. He’s got that Jason Bourne-Jack Bauer thing, where he has his own moral code. And I love the action stuff! I’m not a stuntman, but I’m athletic, and [as McGarrett] I like hanging people off buildings and tying them to the hoods of cars and then driving really fast.”

Scott on deciding to sign on for the CBS series: “My first instinct was no. I have no desire to do just a straight procedural. This is my job and I’m doing it with full passion. If it runs twelve seasons, I’ll be I my forties, and I can parlay it into whatever I want, you know?”

Daniel on showing a different side: “That people see that Jin [from Lost] was actually a character, and not who I was, is meaningful to me. I loved my experience on Lost and I’ll make no bones about it. That said, it was a huge ensemble and I wanted to make sure that I was an integral part of [this] show.”

Grace on dealing with fame: “This has been a really interesting journey. I’m really grateful [for the opportunity], but with that comes a lot of exposure. There’s an inordinate amount of attention put on actors. Some people want to make their lives public, but that doesn’t mean everybody does. It kind of feels you landed in – well, not really “Alice in Wonderland”, because its not that fun.”

Alex O'Loughlin: More 'GQ Australia' Pics!

Check out another batch of pics from Alex O’Loughlin‘s cover shoot with GQ Style Australia!

“Most people on this island are watching [Hawaii Five-0]. So everywhere I go, people know who I am. But the thing about it is that … it’s Hawaii, and Hawaiian people are rad,” the 34-year-old Australian actor shared with the mag.

“They’re a lot like Aussies, very grounded and laidback and really, really sweet. There’s a lot of ‘Aloha’ here, a lot of generosity of spirit,” he added.

“Sometimes I prefer to stay at the house, but for the most part, its part of the gig and it’s probably the best place on earth to get used to it,” he explained about fame.

Alex O'Loughlin: Shirtless for 'GQ Style Australia'

Alex O’Loughlin shows off his ripped physique in GQ Style Australia, currently on newsstands.

Here’s what the 34-year-old Hawaii Five-0 star, who also appears on the GQ cover, shared with the mag:

On leaving his native Australia for America: “When I first moved over here I was really, really nervous. It took me six years to settle into living in LA. I had my life together [in Australia], my niche and my friends. And I’m like, ‘Wow, I’m up and moving to the middle of the ocean, to a small island where 
I don’t know anyone.’”

On filming his CBS show in Hawaii: “It’s one of the greatest things that’s ever happened to me. This place is one of the greatest on the planet; the people here are amazing. I’ve already made so many incredible friends that I’ll have for the rest of my life. I can’t really see myself leaving, regardless of what happens to the show.”

On being compared to the original Hawaii Five-0: “There’s also a lot of fans and friends of Jack Lord — who played the original Steve McGarrett — and I’m an Australian. So I can’t think about any of that. All I can think about is doing my work, being true and honest within the character and trying to deliver on time.’
