Alexander Skarsgard is LA Times' Millennium Man

Alexander Skarsgard is heralded as the “Millennium Man” in the latest issue of the LA Times Magazine.

The 33-year-old True Blood actor talked about his ego-free personality. He shared, “I’m not a ‘Hollywood’ actor. I am a social guy, but I’m not one of those actors who will show up to a shoot with 15 agents and managers and publicists. An entourage like that just makes me uncomfortable.”

Watch the video below of Alex talking about growing into his own skin as an actor. And read the full interview at!

    Looking very classy here! He should keep it that way in all aspects of his life and he will go far.

    @Classy. Read the full article about him… the people doing the shoot say what a terrific, unassuming, genuine, non-ego person he is — and was a dream to work with. He has had that reputation for years. I’m sure he’s human and has flaws… but daaaamn they are hard to find. Please don’t be fooled by the gossip sites that just make up crap to get hits.

    Thanks JJ for the post. I can’t get enough of Alexander Skarsgard. I’ve never been a fangirl like this before. Jai. Its true. He really is a walking skarsgasm. *winks*

    Um, is he wearing guyliner in the interview? It seems like it. Or am I the only one who thinks so?

    Alex always manages to make me love him even more after each interview. He’s a gorgeous man with a wonderful personality.

    He speaks such good English, it’s incredible. I’ve heard many other Swedes speak English and they have this Swedish accent that sounds kinda strange lol. With Alex you can only hear it here and there.

    Mouse Says:

    @Liv: LOL! Yep, he’s DEFINITELY wearing guyliner. Quite a lot too.

    He seems really nervous in the interview.

    Veruca Says:

    Good god that picture of him looks like a painting – so perfect. And for a blonde he grows facial hair quite nicely. As for the guyliner, no matter how perfect a person is to look at, makeup is quite needed on camera or in pictures – that’s probably his makeup from the phtotoshoot.

    @VampFan: I agree with everything you just said. Did you see that pic of him on the Straw Dogs set? Shirtless? I just about fainted!

    Gorgeouzz Says:

    I respect him, he’s very talented. The only thing I hate, or dislike is that people in this bransch don’t always get through to much of struggle to be successful, it’s all about having good connections. There’s only a few people who have worked their asses of, and I really admire them for it. Alex is one of those who has had both connections (since his father is a famous actor) and he has also attended theatreschool, which is a sign of hard work.

    Anyway, I hope Alex, my fellow Swede, continues to be down to earth as he seems to be. Hope I’ll get to meet him one day :D

    He’s just gorgeous. He does look like he’s wearing eyeliner, I wonder what that’s about. He is just a perfect specimen, Great pics and good article. Nice job LA Times. He seems to have his spark back.

    VampFan Says:

    @Mouse… Hi… Yeah he is wearing guyliner, but for the photo shoot… gives it the 1920′s silent movie look… these photos are high end works of art not the usual stud shots. Very dramatic. Love them.

    @Gogreouzz Hello. I may agree with you on the connections part in some instances, but Alex is not one of them. Sure, his father is a star in Sweden but his name pulls little weight in the Hollywood. Alex has struggled for a long time to land a meaningful role here (4 or 5 years before he got GK). Even in Sweden, they may love him but he was only offered hunky boyfriend roles which he didn’t want to do anymore. I respect the fact he left the security of his home country to come here and give it a shot. So in my humble opinion, Alex’s success now was not handed to him on a silver platter.

    VampFan Says:

    HI again Gorgeouzz… I would love to hear more about what you know of him as a Swede. I’ve heard he really is a nice guy.

    I reread my post to you and wanted to clarify I was agreeing with you, and only clarifying in case people from Sweden think he had it easy here and connections got him jobs. I actually think the phenomenal thing about his success here is that he is from a foreign country where no matter how talented the star is, the accent lands them stereotypical Russian agent or Nazi roles. *grins* Too bad, cause I am a big fan of all countries movies and I prefer the mother language and subtitles to dubbed in. *smiles*
