Did we miss anyone?


    • Hi Jan

      We have taken all the facts from his interviews given to various magazines and newspapers. Sources have been mentioned at some places.
      If there are still some errors, please pinpoint those and also their correct versions.

      • First of all, he’s 6’1″ which he said himself on Craig Ferguson back in 2009. That’s his listed height EVERYWHERE. If anything he’s slightly over.

        Second, his younger sister’s name is Jackie. Not Jennifer.

        Third, he started dating Holly Valance in 2006, not 2005.

        Fourth, Alex did not walk the red carpet with Jodhi Meares at the GQ Men of The Year Awards Australia in 2011. He walked the carpet with his then-girlfriend, now wife Malia, who he’d already been dating for three months. That event was how Alex and Malia went public. Jodhi happened to be attending the same event, and Alex took a few photos with her. That’s it. Not to mention, his past “fling” with her was never even confirmed/verified. It was said to have lasted from February-June 2011. What’s hilarious is how you say Alex went public with both Johdi and Malia at the GQ Men of The Year Awards Australia 2011. LOL

        You obviously didn’t get most of this information from Alex interviews. Because if you had, it would have been correct. The only stuff you got right was his ethnicity, hair color, eye color, sexual orientation, past films/tv shows, and random additional facts at the end. Otherwise, most of this is completely wrong. It was a shoddy research job.

        • Hi Jamie

          Thanks for speaking your mind and showing your concern for improving the article quality which we strive for.
          First – His height has already been mentioned 185 cm (You are saying 186 cm). We have even made sure to be precise to the decimals.
          Second – Can you please send an interview link where Jackie is written?
          Third – Please send the interview link. As per Daily Mail, they dated for 4 years until 2009.
          Fourth – Have made some changes. To be clear, we had not mentioned Alex going public with both Jodhi and Malia at the GQ Men Of The Year Awards Australia 2011.
