Alex in April 2008 at the movie premiere for Speed Racer

Oh what a difference 5 yrs makes. Talk about a style change.

I can’t tell if I love it or hate it! My mind is doing this:

  1. Know what you mean. Think I love it. But then he could wear a bin liner and look good. Hmmm ….bin liner ….easy to rip off…

  2. Well, I’ve always thought this outfit was a bit too busy-busy, and that the elements of it don’t even go together terribly well. However, whatever we may think about the ensemble, dude is wearing the ever-lovin’ HELL out of it! He is bending that mishmash to his damn will and somehow making it all look good.

    And, btw, that face! That stare! And that stance! Ummm… what were we talking about?

    • It looks too much like he was “trying” for a funky look. Not into it. Way into the guy, though!!!! (Obviously, heh)

  3. Not gonna lie – I hate the outfit, too rock and roll and just looks like he’s trying too hard, but I like the hat and a I love, love, love that face!

      • It doesn’t even seem like him THEN. Don’t like the hat, the scarf is ugly and unnecessary. And, if I remember correctly, isn’t he wearing some kind of weird floral tennis-type shoes?

        I don’t think he looks good in hats, at all. Some people do, some people don’t. He doesn’t.

        • Actually I think it does look like him then. Alex had kinda a funky period and I remember in at least one interview him saying he had a hat collection and loved wearing hats. But yeah, this is a strange, over-busy look. He is much more classic now…

          But HE looks awesome. The man makes the clothes in his case. πŸ˜†

        • “I don’t think he looks good in hats, at all” – I literally gasped out loud when I read that! LOL. OMG I think he rocks most hats. Just not this one.

          OMG the shoes. the shoes. eek.

  4. It looks like Alex as jack sparrow – but those EYES are so beautiful, so much to tell with those gorgeous eyes!!

  5. I’m always amazed at how much he became a man in those 5 years (or majured? My brain’s burning today so excuse my wrong choice of words 😞 !!)
    Maybe it’s because he had so many major steps in the last 2 years, leader of 5O, boyfriend, father, family man, severe injure!

  6. I don’t complicate myself….I hate the hat, so OUT!!….the scarf? For what? OUT! …. The jacket and shirt….not necesaries, OUT! Uhmmmmm, youngish Alex with curlies, chest hair and a pant that draws his bump, bump FOY!!!…..Now, I love it….my manguito verde<3

  7. OMG! I’m surprised by all your comments. I love when he dressed this fashion. He dressed like this when he was with Holly, he says he loves hats, and can’t agree with him more. I’ve seen him in so many and the leather jacket LOVE IT!!

    • Oh i love him in hats!! I’m just not very fond of this one. I think if he lost either the hat or the scarf it would have been better. It’s just one item too much IMO. but I love that he takes risks and has fun with his wardrobe.

  8. I am a little confused too.. Love the longer hair, Love the “Mick” do! πŸ˜‰

    Um.. the sunglasses placement hasn’t changed πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ But look at the size of that belt buckle!! 😯

    Thanks for the picture. I will add it to my others I have from this time πŸ™‚

    • to ontlls.. if you look at the pics from moonlight on the set and off, you’ll see he wore that belt almost always. I always thought it came from his closet and not wardrobe. could this be his lucky buckle?

  9. Reading my friends comments and join my opinion: LESS IS MORE for our handsome man!!! It’s too much clothes and accessories on him, unless that we will have a striptease show performed by the only AOL. My imagination went to far, girls? If you think that yes, i’m sorry.

  10. I’m fixated on two things in this pic…and it’s not the hat and the scarf. One is his huge package…yowza….where was I?….oh right…and two is Holly’s hand. Not because she has long, lovely fingers…but because it makes me crazy thinking about all the AOL gloriousness that that hand has touched and caressed….and stroked. *sigh*

  11. to canadagirl66.. I too have imagined were holly’s hands and lips, and tongue, and fingers, and toes, well, you get the picture! oh no.. I started dreaming of his omg! got to go… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
