Alex O’Loughlin on co-starring with Jennifer Lopez on “The Backup Plan

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

There are two things you’re not going to hear from hunky Aussie actor Alex O’Loughlin. One is whether or not he wears a suit and tie as the new Steve McGarrett of CBS’s updated “Hawaii Five-0” series. The other is anything negative about his “The Backup Plan” leading lady, Jennifer Lopez.

Given that the Friday 4/23)-opening romantic comedy is a big screen Big Break for the former “Moonlight” and “The Shield” actor, and we’re seeing his handsome puss all over billboards and buses, it would be pretty surprising if he dissed La Lopez, who has been notorious for her diva ways in the past. But he goes so far as to tell us, “It’s surprising to hear it mentioned as much as I have because she was perfect — on set, and off. It’s difficult to imagine the woman I know and worked with fitting this description. I found her selfless, always thinking about the people around her. Professional. A great, hands-on mother as well. If you’re looking for dirt, you’re not going to find it here.”

O’Loughlin notes that Lopez had her two-year-old boy and girl on the set of the feature, in which she plays a single woman who decides to have a baby via sperm donor, only to fall in love when she is already pregnant. “I didn’t know her before the twins, so I hesitate to guess, but I would imagine that this is the final element in her life that makes her the woman she was destined to be. Children are the ultimate definition of who we are as humans, after all,” says the single actor. “She’s amazing.”
