    thank you! i love!

    i can’t wait to see him on the Globes.

  • Penny

    He looks greasy. They’re discussing who’s going to top.

  • Liza

    @Anna: Yep. He is definitely Nelly.

  • Tania

    @Monica: “What a little fruitcake with his legs crossed like that.” That had me cracking up! LOL European men need to understand that this kind of behavior isn’t acceptable in the U.S. unless they are gay. He would look so much more appealing to audiences and to women if he didn’t have so many gay mannerisms and a gay way of dressing. That’s just NOT sexy.

  • Tony

    My girlfriend is crazy about him but even she admits that he needs to man up a bit. It’s not just that he’s crossing his legs but IT’S THE WAY he’s doing it that makes him look gay. When Brad Pitt and George Clooney cross their legs they don’t look gay. It’s just his whole body demeanor.

  • Sandra

    @Jason: “Erin you are knowledgeable that Sweden has the largest amount of homosexuals in any country right. Europeans are the reason why homosexuality is so prevalent there culture breeds homosexuality.
    Sweden as whole has the largest case of Homosexuals, so Swedish men aren’t afraid of their sexuality because about 40% of them are gay.” Oh My God. Is this true??? Why is homosexuality so prevalant in Sweden? I have gay friends and I’m okay with that but if you’re straight you should be straight and not swing both ways or act feminine. Maybe Sweden needs to be a little less liberal.

  • Cassie

    He looks normal in the pic where he’s looking down at the paper with his legs crossed only at the ankles. But in the pics where he’s completely crossing his legs like a woman he looks very effeminate! That doesn’t mean he’s gay but it’s still a turn off. YUCK.

  • Oceane

    I guess he’s made it eh? You don’t make it in hollywood until someone calls you gay….

  • I love Vin Diesel

    It’s not a big deal that he’s having lunch with a male friend. That doesn’t mean anything. But I think the point some people are trying to get across is that he tends to behave in an effeminate kind of way sometimes. Women don’t find that sexy.


    Is this a popular hairstyle in gay-friendly Sweden? I hate how his hair sticks up in the back in a choppy kind of way. It looks so naaaaaaasty. Please, Alex, for the love of everything that is good and kind in this world wear your hair in a normal way.

  • Lola

    What is it about Alex that brings out the crazies in the comment section here?


    His hair looked real nice at the Dior Cocktails event just a few days ago. He looks very studdly in the picture from that event right here in this website. I wish he would wear his hair like that more often. Not that sticking up in the back style. Maybe it’s a European thing.

  • Confused

    This is the problem with Alex. Sometimes he looks very masculine and hot. And sometimes he looks feminine which is very unnattractive on men. :(

  • Who is his friend??

    Does anybody know who the black guy is? Perhaps a new guest actor on True Blood? I know it’s not romantic, they seem to just be friends. But I’m curious about who he is.

  • Johnny

    To all the people who are calling Americans hillbillies: Personally, I’m glad we don’t share the same beauty standards for men and women as the Europeans. Because if we did we would think yellow crooked teeth and body order were attractive. I’m glad a large majority of Americans frown on feminine behavior in men. Women are attracted to manly men not womenly men.

  • Cathy

    God, listen to some of you people talking about the way he’s crossing his legs. The man is 6’4 and can’t fit his legs under the table. So he has them turned away while the rest of his body is facing his friend. Get a damn grip. And how is a way a person crosses their legs gay? Seriously. How? Why does that even have to be considered gay, as if it’s something bad? Some of you are morons. Especially Tania. I’ve never heard anything so offensive in my life. It’s 2010, quite talking about being gay as if it’s a bad thing and like it’s some type of social disease. Audiences would like him better if he wasn’t so gay? Are you effing kidding me with that? I wish I had never clicked on this thread. There is so much stupidity that it’s mind boggling.

  • Whoever

    @@ Jason:

    Dont you mean African Americans or even Native Americans!?!

  • Whoever

    Anyway… dont know of this guy or heard much about him.. nor do I find him attractive….all I know is that I want House to beat his show for the Golden Globe!

  • Nikki

    What so because he is with a “mystery man” that makes him Gay (gasp) no freaking way then its best that no man in the world have a lunch date ever do not want people to talk!!.

    Get a clue just because of where he is from their standing of homosexuality does not make them gay.
    And even if he was big deal there are loads of men out there with different enthnicty and relligion who are.
    I say good on them!! as long as you are happy and no one is getting hurt who the hell cares because I don’t hell I got gay and Bi friends an love them to death and you do not see me freaking out if one of my girlfriends hug me who is bi “oh god she hugged me that means she thinks I am in love with her!!” freaking grow up and educate yourself.
    A hug can be a hug and kiss just a kiss of many forms and meanings
    and a dinner date can be a dinner date where people chat or heaven frobid are hungry and do not want to eat alone!!

    I am not a big fan of Eric more towards Bill but got to say there is something about Alexander that makes me go wow! lol

  • Americans do it better

    Having lunch with a male friend doesn’t imply you are gay. But dressing like a gay and having a gay hairstyle and gay mannerisms DOES IMPLY you are gay. He needs to butch up and get rid of his European sissy ways. This is America not Sweden.

  • Celebwatcher

    Is that his boyfriend??? No for real. This guy comes off very freaky to me if you know what I mean.

    More in depth readings start as low as $5.00. Get yours today!!!

  • Sweden is THAT bad?

    Aren’t british men supposed to be very feminine? So why is Stephen Moyer who plays vampire Bill on True Blood and other Brits like Daniel Craig and Jason Statham a lot more manly than Alex Skarsgard? I thought the brits were the biggest fruitcakes around. Are the Swedes even worse??

  • w

    @BAD HAIR, I AGREE: Or maybe he doesn’t want to play dress up for you. Maybe he doesn’t give a f*ck about some message board troll, who probably doesn’t look half as good as does with this hair.

  • Mmmm…

    What’s up with his hair sticking up like that? He looked so hot at the recent Dior event. But that hair’s gotta go.

  • youarecrazypeople

    What do you talk about? Don’t you see there is no place for his legs? You are seriously crazy!

  • Jeff

    I’ve getting a gayvibe from him for a while when I look at pics, but then again my gaydar is pretty much broken. Maybe he’s just really comfortable in his own skin.

  • sher

    Wow. Like someone above said I really can’t believe some of the comments on here. Let’s say that it turns out he is gay. What then?does that mean he gets banished back to sweden or that he shouldn’t be cast in any other shows/movies?should hbo fire him? Or is it just the twisted satisfaction of being able to point at him and laugh “oh he’s so gay”. Someone please enlighten me.
    here. So let’s say that he is gay-what does that mean? He shouldn’t be allowed to act

  • Erica

    And guys the hair sticking up in the back is probably because he scratched his head and it stuck up because he had some goop in it.

    So, is it GAY to scratch one’s head? Is it GAY for a man to put goop in his hair? If so, alert all the haters on here: the US males may be 95% gay and even eclipse, gasp, Sweden!

    LOL you people are hella provincial.

  • British Latin American

    God, a lot of these comments are just plain ignorant and stupid. How manly are US men anyway, when their wives and girlfriends control everything they do?

  • Seriously

    @British Latin American: YOu have a ppoint, in the USofA stereotypes run rampant. On one hand you have the Ultra conservatives who basically live their lives a whole lie. Also what American fail to admit alot of men are living down low, which is very common, and a lot of their wives don’t know or pertend they don’t. Even though I am American, please forgive some of these idots for their expressions, that is the way most Americans act when we don’t want to face the truth.

  • Seriously

    @Monica: why do you come onto an AS thread? What is your problem? Crossing legs is a sign of being a fruitcake?really? are you serious? Actually Monica you sound more like a fruitcake with nuts than he looks. How nutty can you be, than to constanly post on a thread of someone you despise.

  • Seriously

    @@ Jason: actually biggot, Different ethnicities built the USA, not Europeans, get your history facts straight . WTH what does having to be of another race have to with you proving your point. It amazes me the amount of ignorance on this site. It leads me to believe that some of you posting are doing so w/o your parents permission. LOL

  • yeah


    Yep and my lord he is perfection! More Jared please, more ASkarsgard!

  • mouche

    Of course it isn´t easy for a man as tall and broadshouldered as Alex S to sit comfortably in that tiny chair! Poor man, no wonder that he twists and turns his body in strange positions lol lol!

  • Just Don’t know

    @sher: “So let’s say that he is gay-what does that mean? He shouldn’t be allowed to act”

    No. If it does turn out he’s gay, the being gay part in itself isn’t the problem. It’s that he says he’s straight, likes natural girls, can’t wait to have a family, etc. He cultivates this persona of being a very sweet, humble man and women all over of the planet are swooning for it. Who knows if that’s really him or if it’s an act. If it turns out to be bullshit, his fans will feel betrayed. That’s the real issue.

  • heidi

    If you like him as an actor, you like him as an actor–he doesn’t owe anyone more than that. He’s a gorgeous man and that doesn’t change. But as far as distrusting what he says himself, using a pic of him lunching with a friend and having crossed legs as evidence is about as idiotic as it’s possible to be. Body language is culturally influenced–Hugh Laurie did a great chat about it on Leno, as he starts to sit exactly like Alexander is in these pics and then catches himself and sits as wide legged as possible–American macho–while laughing at the different mores for male sitting between countries.

    I hope Alexander S doesn’t get pushed into editing himself to fit the expectations of the more bigoted comments on this board. I think he’s great and incredibly sexy the way he is. More Alexander!

  • jenn

    What does it matter if he’s gay or not. He has a reputation to be a very touchy person. . If you have ever seen footage of him You will actually see how touchy he is; 2009 Comic Con he was sitting next to Jessica Hamby and he was knocking his knees into hers fussing with her a little. He’s like that with almost everyone.

  • Annie

    Jason @ 01/11/2010 at 10:17 pm
    Are you kidding me? You don’t know what you are talking about, maybe it seems like there’s a lot of homosexuals in sweden but that’s maybe beacuse it’s more exepted there than in the US! 40%? Where did you get that from?

  • stacy

    Not to mention that the Kate B. rumours all started because he was hugging and kissing her backstage and playing with her hair. He’s a touchy feely guy who’s comfortable with himself and his friends all seem to adore him. Go, Alexander.

  • R&M


    Heidi, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Alexander is himself and I hope he stays that way. He’s waaayy hotter then most American actors, just for that very reason.

  • Janeth

    I don’t give a damn if he’s gay or not! he’s hot and talented who gives a damn about his personal life… Get a clue people, Get a damn clue!!!!

  • yo sista

    the guys in here saying he’s gay are the gay ones, ’cause my sister is a sexologue & told me 90% of men who are homophobc are GAY themselves, but just don’t want to face it, so they attack! So quit acting all bullsh!t a-aaghit? we all know yall ani’t that “manly” k? can’t stand fake people, what does a hair cut makes a dude gay?!!! get a clue, better yet get a life.

  • yo sista

  • JiJi

    Some people are SO judgemental,
    1) His legs are crossed cuz he’s like 6’7 (look at the table and look at his legs)
    2) OOooOoOoh he’s having lunch with some dude…..Don’t we all??

    **just add “Mystery male” and BAM!! let the rumours FLY!!!!****
    And let’s just “SAY” he was in fact “gay”???? So what?! I think WE ARE ALL adult here…….

  • Sintia

    You people are terrible and have no lives at all!
    So if you’re a girl you can’t go for lunch with another girl. Same applies to guys?
    Geez, some of you are unbelievable!

    Btw, thanks Jared. Alex looks GORGEOUS!

  • Christine

    It appears that the fat, ugly Purse Forum fangirls have found the thread. LMFAO at you all. You regularly complain about Just Jared and call this blog trash, yet you have no problem (a) posting photos from here in PF, and (b) coming in to the comments to make 30 million “he’s NOT GAY, not gay!11!!” posts. Pathetic. Your Alexander Skarsgard thread provides great humor for other forums, just to let you know.

  • True?


    LOL!!! Oh they are going to get you now!!! Yeah they are a crazy bunch!!!

  • heidi

    Or perhaps Alexander Skarsgard has some fans who enjoy pics of him and don’t get bent out of shape at the way he’s sitting and immediately decide they know his sexual preferences. Just a thought.
