10 Things You Didn’t Know About Josh Holloway
We have no idea what the hell is happening on the island, but we did unearth some shocking — and sexy —secrets about Lost’s long-haired hunk.
1. He grew up in a trailer. Though he now lives in a Hawaiian paradise, Josh and his three brothers were raised in a trailer in rural Georgia. “Coming from a poor family, I had the ability to exist, and thrive even, with no money,” he says. Josh did work a few odd jobs, however, mowing lawns and picking up dead chickens on a farm. Uh, dead? “I would assume from the heat,” he says. “During the summer it gets really hot in Georgia.”
2. He has a criminal past. Just like Sawyer, Josh has his shady side. While working at a department store during college, he and his buddies would steal the merchandise and then return it to the store for a refund. Their scam earned Josh enough money to get through a semester of college. Not only that, he says proudly, “I left the job as employee of the month.”
3. He once played a cow. Before he was an actor, the Southern hottie brought out his animal side as a model. One of his strangest gigs was a pajama campaign. “The pajamas had different animal prints and our hair was styled to look like the animal,” he says. “I ended up with a cow-print hairdo with little horns. It only appeared in Europe, luckily, so my friends didn’t see it.”
