NGINX not binding to localhost:80 only 127.0.0.1:80

Ive had this issue with tomcat apache in the past and always fixed it by specifying localhost as part of the listen directive - not working with NGINX on OS X.
NGINX is responding to 127.0.0.1 - but localhost it just drops the connection (its not refusing the connection, just dropping it)…
Is there a way to fix this I have tried listen *:80, listen localhost:80 and still I cant reach it through the browser using localhost.
localhost is resolvable with ping and has its entry in the hosts file.
