Today We Throw Alex Back

 A “matinee idol” is a male movie star who is obsessively admired by his fans. This term was used from the 1930s to the 1960s. Many actors continue to be admired, thanks to their classic good looks and good acting skills. Alex O’Loughlin has these qualities, and is the idol of many squeeing fangirls.  

The following photo comparisons capture Alex in the same look and feel as some of the idols of a past era.
