    Love the pictures. Collegues having fun on a day off work and goofing around. I find it hard to believe that some seriously disturbed people make the assumption that these people (Alex, Willa, Drew and their friends) must be romantically linked just because they were photographed together. I have myself been photographed in much worse poses when goofing around with collegues much younger as well as much older than me and you know what I wasn’t having sex with any of them. The internet with twitter, facebook etc. will soon make everybody who is famous so anxious of how they are portrayed that they will never have the courage to leave the privacy of their homes

  • poke

    To call Eurotrash a guy who’s been always elegant and gracious to his fans, the press and his colleagues is just a prove of how unhinged and immature fans can be, *g*

  • ErinN

    @ Jays-Girl. The real comparison was not on Anna / Stephen, but on Stephen getting a girl of 17 or 18 pregnant when he was 29. I said I dont judge him and I dont. I like him too. I am actually happy not to read about that being blown out of proportion. No one knows what the real situation is.

    @ Poke. You are so right. He had a career in Europe and a huge following for years. Friends I correspond with said this… We are more open sexually than in the U.S. and we follow Alexander’s career closely. If he was gay or bi it would have been out there already. And it is not. Also his over the top womanizing would have been out there too. Alexander says he has not had a long term relationship in around 5 years, since he came to the states he has been concentrating on his career. Prior to that he had two long term relationships… one for three years and one for two years.

    I am not ready to condemn this man on such rumors. None of us are God are we?

  • Randy

    @jays-girl: This is much ado about nothing.
    Last time I checked it wasn’t illegal to date an 18 year old. You people are making a lot of judgments about something that is really insignificant. As long as its not a child or animal I couldn’t care less about who an actor is dating. Wow, what is it about this guy that seems to inspire such rabid devotion and moral finger pointing? Even if it turns out the guy isn’t the golden boy some people might want. WHO CARES!! Compared to some of the s**t out there this is a big nothing. Are you all so perfect that you haven’t done a few foolish things in your own life. Get a grip! especially that Sara chick.

  • b

    I have to set some things clear here. I usually do not post anything but some of the posts upset me as European. I really start feeling sorry for AS.
    I give you the European perspective, this might explain a couple of things which seem so odd to you North Americans.

    1. We are used to different rules. (daah) In most of Europe the legal drinking age is 16! By then you are considered more or less as an adult. The only exception is that you are not allowed to drive. You have to be 18 to get you license. (I do not know the swedens law but it is similar I guess)

    By the way hardly anybody gets carded at bars, nobody cares! If you are stupid enough to intoxicate yourself with alcohol, you take full responsibility for your own actions anyways as you will be very very sick the next day.

    2. For us it is OK to hang out with 18 year olds if you are 30 and vice versa!! When I was 18 I was hanging out with 30 year olds too! NOT A PROBLEM! My parents were actually happy about that as my 30 year old friends kept an eye on me when we went clubbing, I was totally protected by them.

    I hope this info gives you more insight into the European way of life.
    Poor AS being verbally violated just because he hung out with friends on a boat.


    PS: sorry for my bad grammar, English is not my first language

  • Randy

    Oh jays-girl… I’m really sorry in my rant I wasn’t referring to you in particular but just to some of the responses in general. I forgot I had replied to your quote. So sorry!

  • ErinN

    @Randy. Agree. That is what I have been saying. Big damn deal. But you did strike a real cord… those of us who are fans of Alexanders and have taken the time to look at his old newsletters he wrote, listen to his long time friends, even listen to most of the press and his coworkers, we have discovered he is really, truly a nice man. Perfect? Hardly.

    @ to whoever called him EuroTrash. You are a complete moron. Considering the U.S. is in extreme financial distress and perhaps decline, while Europe (at least Sweden) is successful… does this make us AmeriTrash now?

  • ErinN

    @ B… I am appalled too by what some of us Americans can say. Soem of us seem to get our cultural experience from our local Wal-Marts. Not all of us are like that though. I only hope we dont scare Alexander back to Sweden.

    Please dont judge us all as Ugly Americans by a few.

  • ErinN

    @b: B are you a poster on I post there too but under a different name.

  • “Eurotrash”

    “Eurotrash” – that’s nice. You sound intelligent! Anyways. I’m Swedish and I would like to say that Alexander has been known for his whole life in Sweden and he has never acted inappropriately. Quite the oposite actually. This is just ridiculous what some of you are insinuating. He’s had a several girlfriends over the years and they have always been the same age as him. This is just a bunch of speculation. Please tell me what’s ‘sleazy’about these pictures? The fact that they are drinking? Oh please – welcome to the world. And it might so happen that they are together on that boat because they work together.

    I’m just basing this on interviews of course, but Alexander strikes me as a very intelligent, decent and hard working person. And he looks gorgeous in these pictures.

  • jays-girl

    where did i state that it was illegal? no where.. you’re missing my point..
    everyone is entitled to opinions and i was merely pointing out that everyone is so quick to jump on the person who differs to the “norm” opinion, when i’m pretty sure 99% of the people here actually have no idea about who A.S is as a person, only the way he comes across in interviews and the like..
    *insert scold scold scold and moral finger pointing here*
    *rolls eyes*

  • ErinN

    THANK YOU Eurotrash. It is days like this I am embarrassed to be an American.

  • ErinN

    @ jays-girl. *rolls eyes back at you for your moral piousness and bigotry too. WTH? You assume the worst and you dont know him either. Must be hard on you having all the answers.

  • b

    thanks erin

    I usually do not judge a nation. There are so many nice people living in the USA but also not so nice people, how could I put you all in the same box!?

  • Rukiddingme

    @sara – sadly, you sound like a woman scorned who has found her man with another woman. Even if you are assessing from a less than positive place, your comments are actually very bitter and hateful. I guess I am sorry you had a crush on him and perhaps held a fantasy of meeting him and sweeping him off his feet, but . . . .

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion, even if it does not mesh with the masses and it is reaching in its accusations. Ironically, both his defenders and detractors are quoting or substantiating their comments from interviews / articles that YOU think capture his character. “He said . . .” , “He was quoted on TMZ . . .” etc. There is no one who actually knows him and cannot validate either source (sorry, but even if you do, it is still only second hand news.) He has been very consistent and has projected his image as humble and respectable. I for one choose to believe this as I have seen him with fans and he has been welcoming, respectful and appreciative of the adoration. He was the last star to leave the Paley event in April evidently because he heard that people had flown from all over and he was determined to sign every autograph and take every picture he could, even while his ‘people’ tried to usher him out of the room; that’s quality.

    And no one is not commenting on the character of the person who actually posted those pictures. Let’s also look at this co-star who has grown up in the age of the “more media the better”, regardless of good or bad (and was on the OC and Gossip Girl – ’nuff said? okay no?) and may have blind-sided him by posting these with access to the general public (and how careless for her – she evidently has a boyfriend – that could NOT have been a happy moment seeing her on AS.) The only reason her age matters here is because if effects her maturity and decision making process that perhaps has come back and bit him on the butt. Certainly helps her profile – never heard of her before, but I sure have now. But can we imagine that being on a movie set in a small town must be very isolating – give them a break – imagine being away from family and friends for months at a time. What would you do? Hide in your room?

    Also, to disparage someone about their charity work does a disservice to the charity. I’ve worked in non-profit and I can tell you, as sad as this may sound, it is the backing of a celebrity that helps the organization’s awareness. No one at a charity will scoff if a celebrity lends their name and nothing else. That ALONE helps to generate enough awareness to help raise the funds needed for research, services, grants, etc. that benefit the respective organizations. Of course, it would be preferable for the celeb to do more and actually show up and get involved where/when they can, but your comments ultimately hurt the charity, not really the person, so do not be so flip and careless with your assessments in that area. Regardless of what can be confirmed about the level of his involvement, he is being responsible and doing SOMETHING . . . you would be SHOCKED to find out how many celebrities do nothing or want a charity to pay for their travel, hotel, make up, etc. for them to walk a red carpet – thousands of dollars that come out of the funds trying to be raised for the cause they supposedly support, it’s rather disgusting. I have to defend him on this one.

    On the other side, he has also said he left acting as a teenager because he was uncomfortable with the press commenting on his personal life. That was in Sweden with virtually no paparazzi and even 15 years ago here, it was not the salacious lie-generating monster it has become today. I worry that he is not prepared. I am happy to see that, after being hit by TMZ a handful of times, there is nothing new – and perhaps he has learned a lesson. I hope that the media machine and free ‘fan’ comments of the US are not more than he is ready to handle – but I suspect that even a smart, well-grounded person that he appears (and I like to believe) to be, cannot always prepared for this – it takes on a life of it’s own. But lesson learned and hopefully he will be more careful about the company he keeps to avoid these situations. I do not enjoy the quick clips and pictures of him walking on the street, in the airport or sharing time with his friends as much as I have watching GK, TB or some of his other older and Swedish movies – and would honestly feel deprived (and a little embarrassed for us silly Americans) if he threw up his hands and once again left the industry because of our strange and unhealthy obsession with celebrity. If I never see another photo op, paparazzi attack or read an article about his work or life, I will still be satisfied to see him in any body of work – he has been that impactful in his performance and I wish him well – so that I can see him more – in a theatrical environment.

    Oh my goodness – someone please get this soap box away from me!!

  • Thisistoofunny

    Underage girls drinking on a party boat with 30-something men looks sketchy, doesn’t matter who’s banging (or not banging) whom. Sure, the drinking age is 16 in Europe, but it’s 21 in the US. They’re breaking the law. But hey, bring on the controversy! It’s what the Hollywood PR machine is all about.

  • Johnny

    I loved how Just Jared cropped the picture to make it look like Alex and Willa were alone on the boat. Stay classy, you guys!

  • TBfan

    The only person under 21 is Willa, and you don’t see her with any alcoholic beverage on any of the photos.

  • “Eurotrash”

    @ErinN – don’t be embarrassed :) There’s stupid people everywhere in the world. God knows we have them in Sweden.

    Oh and I’m sure Alexander won’t be scared and go home. From reading about him, it sounds like he’s had tougher times. And it sounds like he feels LA is home now.

    There’s a downside to fame, and this is exactly it. I was just waiting for someone to make up some dirt about him.

  • jays-girl

    i never assumed ANYTHIN – i said it looks bad.. read the sentence word for word.. i never claimed to have all the answers and i rolled my eyes because i mistakenly thought Randy’s rant was directed to me but they had apologised before i had seen it..

    Sorry Randy for that rude gesture!!!


  • “Eurotrash”

    @TBFan – That’s so true. Willa isn’t even drinking LOL

  • TBfan

    Nope, Willa isn’t holding any beverage of any kind in these photos. Innocent of the charges. Please convict those who falselsy accuse her of doing so.

  • kc

    1. So I guess if I sit beside a male co-worker and take a picture, it means I’m dating him.
    2. Willa doesn’t seem to be holding any alcohol bottle. She is in the vicinity of people drinking. So does that mean that parents having dinner and drinking wine in front of their kids is disgusting?
    3. If Willa does choose to drink, it’ll be her choice or her mistake. She’s 18, she can vote for a President, I’m sure she can choose whether its right or wrong for her to drink or be in the presence of people who drink. :)
    4…. I think its the fact that people are rushing to conclusions that are angering some fans. All these accusations of “dating” & “fame-seeking” or whatever are based on pictures that are cropped.
    5. Instead of calling him “eurotrash” .. I think you should take a look at the likes of Paris Hilton or other reality “stars” who haven’t done much but are pictured going to “events”. Then define the word “trash” for me.
    6. Alex hangs out with all kinds of female friends. One such is his co-star Kristen Bauer. Alex co-hosted her birthday party the other year in Vegas… but you barely see photos of that… oh I guess its because she’s not 18. *duh*

  • b

    @ Thisistoofunny

    Correct, 21 is the legal age. What I just wanted to adress before is that when you are not used to such a law you just forget to pay attention.

    But as the young girl does not drink in any of this pics, I guess your accusations are wrong. There is no drinking party going on if only 1 person, who is old enough, has 1 beer! Because then my roomate and me would have a drinking party every evening.

    And there is nothing inappropriate about hanging out with coworkers on a boat enjoing the sun.

    I normally do not post at all ( well maybe in some newspapers from home town)

  • Randy

    @jays-girl: Yeah I know this… I did apologize a few posts later. When i was on my rant I had forgotten that I had replied to your comment. Many apologies!!!!!!! You were most certainly wronged

  • mouche

    I just don´t get it – if someone of the male sex is capable to have fun and be social with both women and men, young and “old” at the same time, he is per definition an immoral sleezebag, and into underaged girls or gay or bisexual – wow! AS has grown up in a big family and is probably a good mixer with a large circle of friends!

  • Randy

    @jays-girl: I posted my 2nd apology before reading this… :) this is most amusing. I guess we are all guilty of making snap judgements before bothering to get the full picture. I can’t believe so many people have posted on this blog entry… It’s getting a little ridiculous. I really don’t care about all of this and yet here I am… oh the dilemma!!!!!

  • Randy

    @Thisistoofunny: Yeah and this never ever happens anywhere! I don’t get why this such a big deal at the very worst it makes the guy a little sleazy but we don’t know the full story, we don’t know the people and to make any assumption good or bad is a complete waste of time. Do we live in a Salem?

  • Randy

    @Thisistoofunny: Once again I have to apologize I didn’t read your post properly. So sorry!!! what I meant to say is that I know its illegal but the vast majority of 18 year olds in the US participate in underage drinking. In fact i would have to worry a bit if they didn’t.

  • @Weronica

    Yes, Alexander’s sister’s name is Eija and she’s a model I think.

  • ErinN

    @Jays-Girl. I apologize to you. Sincerely. I misunderstood what you were saying. That has happened to me before too. Also you were never that offensive to begin with so never meant to come off too harsh too. Sorry this took so long, I stepped away from the computer to talk to my poor husband who is a saint for not giving me a hard time about my Alexander crush. Which by the way is the worse one I have ever had. Dont know what it is about this guy but we fans love him. LOL

  • live in la


    Why the hate? Life is too short. You have a lot of anger issues or something. What do you hope to accomplish by your rants? It makes you look like the “freak” not him.

  • P

    BOTH girls are underage, the other one is 19. Sorry, the photos look bad no matter how fans try to spin it. These stars say what the public want to hear in interviews. Alex could be a great guy with his fans, but that doesn’t mean he might not be sleazy in his real life.

  • kirsten

    He’s a great talented actor but I’m disappointed at his choice of G/F!

  • TBfan

    Please identify the other girl then. I can tell you that it’s not Megan Adelle who also co-stars in Straw dogs

  • hans

    I can’t belive what I’m reading in these comments. People getting all upset over some pictures of someone hanging out by a lake? And not only that, they are all co-workers for the movie Straw Dogs. This is beyond stupid.

  • s

    @Sara ~ First, you need to look inside yourself and wonder why you hate someone you don’t know and would probably NEVER meet. I feel sorry for you because this sounds mental. Secondly, there are actors out there many people don’t like, but most just turn a blind eye. Honestly try it- you’ll feel better. Lastly, I and probably most people on this forum live in L.A. too and that does not mean a single thing (regarding your mental rumors/facts you think you know). Don’t give the assumption that L.A. is some little town were everyone knows each other, because you may have seen an actor here or there does not mean you know the person. Honestly you sound like an obsessed fan of an actor you feel isn’t getting the recognition YOU think they deserve, but how is this Alexander Skarsgard’s fault? I don’t understand where all your hate is coming from, all I know is that it is not an healthy emotion. Cheers and meditate… breathe.

  • Bob

    Yeah these comments are lame quit it already! Chicks what can you expect!

  • hellzBellz

    How does this make the guy a little sleazy at all? Do ANY of us know what happened that day? The girls dont look drunk or dont debauched… what is the big damn deal? Maybe the ones here screaming foul so loudly are the ones with the real dirty, sick minds. I saw the pixs and never thought a thing other than people having fun. Think what you will, but I am not going to give it and those of you with small, dirty minds another thought.

  • anne

    We don’t know what really happened, but pictures are powerful, body language says a lot, and actors should be aware of the consequences. These aren’t paparazzi shots, these are posed photographs.

    If Alex wants to be considered a serious actor (like it seems he does), then he needs to act like one. Do you think Gary Oldman would be caught partying on a boat with teenage girls hanging all over him–even if they were co-workers? Would Anthony Hopkins do that? Daniel Day Lewis?

    And Willa isn’t just sitting next to Alex. She’s basically groping him (3rd pic), and Alex looks pretty OK with it. That’s great, but I do not buy his whole family-man, guy-you-want-to-bring-home-to-mom schpiel anymore.

  • kbb

    LOL! I pity the woman who ever dates Skarsgard.

  • TBfan

    Willa is wearing jeans. Alex is wearing shorts. In the third picture Willa is holding her own jeans clad leg, not Alex’s. They are not even touching each other.

  • Dr_ludwig

    Correction… the woman he is sitting next to on the set of straw dogs – the one where he is leaning on the arm of his chair – she is not Willa. The woman in the pictures has a tattoo. Willa does not have a tattoo. Plus the woman in the pics has lighter hair.

  • anne

    @TBfan: point taken on the knee, didn’t realise that. still feel that if Alex is wanting to present himself a certain way, these pics kind of counter-act that whole persona.

  • TBfan

    @anne: People should think once and twice before posting things they believe to be facts. You looked at a cropped photo and you thought you saw the truth. I hope this was a lesson you take to heart before posting in the web again.

  • anne

    lol at all of this

  • Poor alex

    Wow, I can’t believe how some of you people are tearing poor Alex apart. We don’t know for sure that Willa and Alex are dating. There were reports that he had dinner and went to the movies with Kate Bosworth. Nothing was reported about that because it wouldn’t be scandalous enough (both around same age). Reports from extras on the set have said it appeared that Willa tried to be around Alex whenever she could. He didn’t appear to encourage anything. But look at the pictures again. Not the cropped pictures. The girl sitting on the other side of him appears to be leaning towards him. And in one of the pictures, she is draped over his arm. There are also other people on the boat. As my swedish friend explained: they may be just hanging around. To swedes the age thing isn’t a big deal. Hanging around doesn’t mean anything inappropriate. I sometimes hang out with the people I work with. Some of them are guys, 20 years younger than me. I am not a cougar. It’s just drinks or dinner with co-workers. NOTHING MORE. So let’s not bring this man’s career down before we have all the facts. He is a great actor. Let’s judge him on that.

  • babydoll1229

    Well, I’m a BIG ASKARS fan! Plus, I’m a Black female. I didn’t know that Willa Holland was known for spouting racial slurs because I’ve never followed her like that. But if that piece of information is true about her, I wonder why ASkars would want to hang around some stupid, immature kid like that. He is 33yo and she just turned 18yo…I’m close to 30 and I don’t have anything to talk about with an 18yo, but that’s just me. But like they say: You are the company you keep! I really hope they were just hanging out for the sake of the movie. Because I would be really disappointed if ASkars shared her same views!

  • ….

    Yes, the whole family thing is bullshiat. I read an old article where he said he hardly partied anymore, then I saw about 20 subsequent pictures of him drunk in bars. I am not saying that he can’t party, but own it. I guess my bigger issue is who he is seen with. You have to be a pretty immature guy to hang out with teenagers and the likes of ERW. He tries to present a certain image and then stuff leaks out and it totally blows everything he has said to pieces.

  • anne

    @….: ia. as you said: “own it.”
