Alexander Skarsgard: VMAN Cover Guy

Alexander Skarsgard: VMAN Cover Guy

Alexander Skarsgard looks spiffy in a tux on the Summer 2010 cover of VMAN, on stands April 20th.

The 33-year-old Swede is expected to attend the the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of his new movie Metropia this Saturday (April 24) in New York City.

Synopsis: In the year 2024, all of Europe is united by a vast web of underground railways, populated by an army of downtrodden worker bees. When one such cog starts hearing voices and encounters a femme fatale shampoo model who seems to hold some answers, he finds himself unearthing a vast Orwellian conspiracy in this visually arresting animated noir.

FYI: There are pictures of shirtless Alex lounging around with his bikini-clad girlfriend Kate Bosworth. We’ll hopefully get those pics posted soon!

    I love him but he looks truly ridiculous. What idiot stylist decided to give him porcupine hair???

    He looks silly :) Says:

    I think they were trying to going for something different and edgy. But it just ended up looking silly.

    Few are as fine as Alex but here he just reminds me of one of the guidos from MTV’s Jersey Shores. LOL

    MeMyselfandI Says:

    @Carlie: Yeah… gotta agree with you here. He looks HOT as usual but the creatives love him and are on a kick to shoot him high end artistically. Love him though!

    His hair looks a little darker.

    @New Jersey Shores member?: Ha ha I was thinking the same thing! He looks like one of those tacky Italian guidos straight up from New Jersey. Yo, Vinny try soma dis lasagna mama made.

    Carolina Says:

    Sometimes these artsy farsty magazine people end up going overboard with their ideas and they make the actors and actresses look really bad. They could have styled his hair spikey like this but not so much and not so high up. It looks exaggerated and draws away from his gorgeousness. I also would like to see him with his lighter blonde hair again which looks great on him.

  13. 13
    I like the beach boy blonde Says:

    Yeah how come his hair has been looking dark lately – like in the Coachella pics? But before he used to look so golden blonde? I wonder if he lightens it or darkens it. The golden blonde tones make him look so bright and happy and healthy.

    Stacey Says:

    I’m not digging the guido Jersey Shores hair but he still looks cute and hopefully the pics inside are better. BTW also in Miami a lot of Hispanic guys do up their hair like that. So it’s not just an italian thing.

    JJ when are you going to post these “pictures of shirtless Alex lounging around with his bikini-clad girlfriend Kate”? And if they both did pose for this magazine does this mean they are trying to make it official? Geez I don’t know why he doesn’t see how fake she is.

    I think this picture would have to grow on me…. its… different!

    As for Kate, least hes happy right? I can’t believe theres no pictures of them kissing yet.

    I miss the blond! Wish they would highlight it, oh well, he still looks hot as Eric in the webisode promos.

    Veruca Says:

    He actually looks a bit boyish in that picture – and skinnier – at a very quick first glance the messy hair and slimness made me think it was Ryan Kwanten! But super cute nonetheless.

    Alexa Says:

    He is such a smoking hot, talented actor – but his PR people need to be fired.
    Silly antics at Coachella, some overly metrosexual magazine covers… he’s ruining his image!

    Why is alex a liar? The comments he made regarding his status was made ages ago. I haven’t heard anything recent. Shes all over him though, god so would I

  33. 33
    Sigh Says:

    Alex looks not that attractive in the poolside photos, he looks really phweeny here, really thin. To think I thought he was soo attractive! Ugh! He was suppose to do s.x scenes in TB in that Bod, I quess I will have to go crushing on Steven Moyer!

    Whynot Says:

    As fans will have a hissy fit when they see the poolside photos!!! But, I still think it is a PR spectacle. They definately know they are being watched people, esp Kate she is even posing in some photos and they are laughing their asses off on how naive everyone is!!!

  35. 35
    Catherine Says:

    I know americans don’t have the Å letter but when having his name on the front cover I think they could atleast make the effort to spell his name correctly.

    Just because you pronounce it Skarsgard cause you don’t know the real sound doesn’t mean it’s his real name.

    It’s Skarsgård, not Skarsgard

    Alicia Says:

    Let me just say that I was totally surprised about how post KB has garnered and how many were neg. I really do not post comments but I have to say I do not know what is it about Kate Bosworth that turns me off about her too, for years never liked any of her movies. At this point I would even pefer Alex to be with Paris Hilton than her. Cannot really explain it though. She just does not come across as being sincere, I mean she has been photographed more than Paris at this point!!! She just does not have that likability that most succesful stars have! I still do not know specifically what it is and it is making me frustrated to say the least. It is like those situations when you get a feeling about how a person is and it is not good. Hopefully AS is happy. Wish him the best.

  37. 37
    TBfan Says:

    To think I thought AS and KB were hot. Nevermind. One look at those pool side photos, of Kate”s flat chest , and flat butt and AlexS shrinking pale physic, so dissapointed…Looking at him I do not see the character Eric and no wonder they passed him up for Thor. Man you have to built up some muscle!!

    marsy Says:

    you don’t think either of them are good looking? wow…. really wish I could see what you guys and your partners look like – guess you all look like Angelina Jolie and are dating Brad Pitt look alikes?

    Stop the hating guys! jeez!

    Veruca Says:

    Alex has constantly said that his frame is naturally very very thin and he has to work hard to keep on some bulk – while he looks very slim in the V Man cover, if you look at his Details cover he’s still got some muscle goin’ on. But on a 6’4 frame, anything non-body builder is bound to look slim. Even in the poolside pictures – he’s lying down. Almost everyone”s stomach looks skinnier when lying down. If he were standing up I’m sure he’d look more muscular. And of course he’s pale – he plays a vampire for like 8 months of the year. He can’t exactly be darkly tanned or anything.

    annalisa Says:

    Okay does Alex and the stylists not realize he is in his thirties not teens and twenties. Only RPatz can pull off that hair. Alex looks like a complete fool. I thought this was a joke cover when I first saw it. Like he was spoofing someone…but no real!!
    And the pics by the pool are so staged. Not saying they are not bf/gf or whatever but she is totally posing and they both know the cameras are there. She is pathetic. X17 just got a video of her coming into Chateau Marmont yesterday and you can totally tell they were tipped off as well. The camera is already rolling near the path where she has yet to appear. Joke!!!
    Really disappointed in Alex!! Staging photo ops, stupid antics at Coachella, dating an anorexic/famewhoring/desperate/homewrecking actress= typical douchebag. More into Sam Worthington or Ryan Kwanten. At least they are manly men who don’t have to resort to that kind of crap. Why so desperate Alex?

    annalisa Says:

    Just saw all the photos from the poolside and why does Kate always look like she has to initiate contact with him. She is always the first to touch, hug, lay on, and he looks completely uninterested in the conversation or her. Not in denial but since they are obviously dating he is acting like an ******* boyfriend here. If everyone is relaxing he is acting passive agressive by reading and not participating. She is posing, grabbing him, and doing anything she can for the cameras. So sad she is like this. I met Sam Worthington and his beautiful gf and they never do this kind of crap. They have plenty of private moments like this and more and guess what….they want to keep them private and not call the paps.

    According to European standards KB is a girl of average weight and very far from being thin as a model. Anyway, her major concerns should be her flabby butt and thighs…
    What about going to the gym, girl?
    About Alex: I agree that he looks like a fool in this pic, utterly ridicolous.

    zee Says:

    Oh God. This thread started off so well. Get over it. He’s dating Kate Bosworth. Do people have to keep moaning about how much they dont like her and how he’s now a douche (for whatever insane reason) in EVERY. SINGLE.THREAD? We get it already.

    And this staging photo ops thing is all speculation and people keep repeating it as fact. Celebs are photographed all the time and the blogs choose which ones they buy. Obviously JJ gets big hits from Skarsgard and Bosworth posts so he buys lots of their photos. That’s the way it works. For those who keep complaining about how famewhore the two of them are why don’t you consider not commenting or clicking on their posts – less comments may eventually lead to less coverage – and that’s what you really want, right? lol.

    irish Says:

    ARMAGEDDON is upon us people!
    Ok they are dating, but could he be MORE uninterested in her? She is the one always initiating contact(including the coachella pics). He is more interested in that script that he is in her..and again they are NOT ALONE.. see the friend in the foreground?
    I kind of think he is acting like a jerk…
    P.S. does anyone want an Anchor necklace? I don’t think I want to support his causes either-bummer

  53. 53
    Veruca Says:

    Yeesh, if these are the poolside pics comments here, I can only imagine once JJ posts them.

    Having looked at the full set that BooHoo posted, you can clearly see that he was reaching out for her in some, touching her butt and the back of her thigh while she just stands there. As for his ignoring her in some – he was reading a script. He probably did want to learn some TB lines or something while he had some relaxing time – sitting by the pool seems to be a kick ass place to work IMO, no matter who’s around. Work over play = some responsibility!

    In any case, he looks hot in the pool pics (though I wish we could have gotten an abs shot) and he looks hot on the magazine cover (though nobody, no, not even R Patz can pull off that hair. It’s not 1999 anymore people!) ASkars can smoulder like nobody’s business though… rowr!

    anonymous Says:

    @Lena: I don’t think anyone is denying anything is going on between them but I believe the problem is that the game playing (are they aren’t they and both of them denying anything was going on when it obviously was) makes people question the reasoning behind it if they are both adults. It can’t be because they wanted privacy or no one to know or they wouldn’t have been so obvious at Coachella. it just seems like a game to keep their names in the press rather than building a relationship.

    Dotell Says:

    All i have to say is golden globes people he SAID that he was Single then later on that night he the rumors of the making out and whatever esle they did He started out looking so honest and genuine what happen AS and recently in NY she said they were just friends what up people? Cmon THEY were and are lying to us and maybe themsleves but I don’t know why? be grow ups stop playing games especially with his fans be honest that’s all people really want even if they can’t handle or stand it at least now they wouldn’t be calling him a douche and a lair or whatever bad things they can think of. Sorry AS disappointed in Your lies.

    As for KB is she working on getting a modeling contract LOL please try again. Just be his GF LOL and follow him where ever he goes you both get talked about then.

    prisma Says:

    Just saw the pool photos. They look staged. I don’t think they’re a couple, maybe fwb but he seems more interested in the script than her and the few times he does touch her, it’s half-assed. She seems like she’s posing for the photographers.

    @ Kiko

    +++Perhaps in France, Kate would be considered as average looking woman but not in any other part of Europe. Especially not in Southern Europe :P+++

    Not exactly. According to the latest study published by the EU Commission Italian girls are just as slim as French girls.

    kiko Says:

    Interesting article :) I was speaking from my own experience. I’ve been to Spain, Portugal, Greece, France, Italy, Germany and I live in Croatia. In these countries most of the women on the streets have few more kilos than KB. According to EU standards, average European woman is 160 cm tall and has 60 kilos :)
    BTW I don’t hate Kate ;)

    I was speaking from my own experience too. I’m partly Italian, partly Austrian, partly Hungarian and partly French, living between Italy and France. And I was talking about young women, of course ; ) Plus, I know that in Croatia there are many pretty girls!
    Anyway I don’t hate Kate either, but I don’t like her.

    s.d. Says:

    It’s amazing how Hollywood puts a label on somebody as being “good looking,” or “desirable,” and everybody starts parroting it as if it were fact. The truth is, most celebrities aren’t any better looking than the average folk. Especially this guy, who’s looks are passable at best. Stroll across any university campus and you’ll see numerous Alexander Skarsgards. However, they’re not actors, models, etc. and aren’t being shoved down peoples’ throats, 24-7, so they go unnoticed.

    I would put my boyfriend’s looks up against Alexander Skargard ANY DAY! I’m not impressed with this guy one iota, and wonder why we keep seeing his homely face. Yuck!

    Poppa's Little Boy Says:

    The catchphrase on the cover must have been written by an LSD-saturated refugee from the psychedelic 60′s. AS is FAR from being a true Hollywood star. His antics over the weekend, primarily his second very public display of drunkenness in two months, won’t be endearing him to any of the power brokers in Hollywood who really matter. The two projects he has set for this summer, in Sweden by the way, both involve his father. Pretty good guess that Poppa S. did a lot to get him those roles and will be expected to keep his problem little boy in line.

    not working on true blood Says:

    Is he available to go to Tribeca this weekend? But how will he ever get the time off from True Blood? Sorry I forgot he hasn’t worked on the show since they started filming the new season, besides a couple promos. He has been doing nothing but calling the paps for months now, he sure hasn’t been working.

    Gustaf Skarsgard is better Says:

    Alex’s brother Gustaf is the real heir to Stellan’s talent. He stars in the upcoming movie The Way Back with Colin Farrel and he’s performing Hamlet. Once he makes his impact in Hwood this year, I can guarantee he won’t be hooking up with bottom feeder famewhrs and staging pap nonsense. He carries himself well and seems truly grateful for his opportunities.

  74. 74
    Kim Says:

    @Gustaf Skarsgard is better: Yeah, but unfortunately Gustaf isn’t as goodlooking as Alex. He is 4 or 5 years younger but he looks way older than Alex, mostly because he’s balding. He was really hot a few years ago but not now.
    One thing though; Gustaf is a MUCH better actor than Alex who is quite average. His voice and the way he speaks is also much better.

  75. 75
    OHVamp Says:

    Alex’s talent is being appreciated. IMO he will continue to grow. Alex was on a short list for Emmy nom for GK… I read many critics thought he deserved it. So come on, he must have “some” real talent. Gustaf may or may not be better actor, but he will likely not make it big in Hollywood… or maybe as a character.

  76. 76
    anonymous Says:

    Did anyone else notice that JJ has edited out the comment he added to the original post about wondering whether Kate would be attending the Tribeca Film Festival with him this weekend as well as the newer post of AS he has no mention of her at all?
