Kate Bosworth & Alexander Skarsgard: Sweden Sweethearts

Kate Bosworth and her boyfriend, True Blood hunk Alexander Skarsgard, share a laugh while enjoying drinks at Åsögatan Aarts restaurant in his hometown of Stockholm, Sweden on Sunday (May 16).

At one point, Kate, 27, affectionately held onto the neck of Alex, 33. More pics at Swedish newspaper!

Alex‘s father, actor Stellan Skarsgard, also recently confirmed that his son and Kate are dating and that the relationship is serious.

Kate and Alex even visited Stellan on the set of his latest superhero flick, Thor, in the desert of Santa Fe, New Mexico.

“Yes, they came both to the taping which was fun, ” Stellan tells Expressen. “She’s nice.”

Even more pics of Kate sitting in Alex‘s lap at!

  • Terese

    OMG some of you fangirls are crazy! They’re a beautiful couple who appear to be very happy together. Good for them. I think there are several people on this board who need to concentrate on their own lives and less on the lives of others! In other words . . . get a life!

  • Naomi

    Is the girl with the dark hair his sister? I like KB and AS.

  • hbgb

    Thanks for posting those lovely pics of Ryan. It’s nice to see a man who doesn’t play games and isn’t afraid to own up to the fact that he has a girlfriend. Alex could learn a thing or two from him”

    LOL! Chances are that Ryans publicist did the same thing you guys are accusing KB people of doing, calling the paps to take his pictures with his date in order to get some press. And yet you think he’s not playing games.

  • Mike

    @Terese: I think the ones who keep coming on here telling people what opinion to have are the ones who need to get lives. He’s just an actor on a show. Who cares if people think he’s dating this chick or not. Personally, I think he’s gay.

  • nicole

    Definitley not hot anymore!!! He is kinda sleazy and gross to me now and very much the liar!! He just wants fame too much and that is when people(especially now in the States) turn against you. He seems like a fake hwood wanna be so bad that I am very much turned off by him. Glad he didn’t get Thor or Captain America which are two movies that I am eager to see. If he was in them it would have ruined it for me now. Just the way I feel and not b/c anyone wants him(have a bf btw who I love very much) but b/c he tried to fake one way and came out another. And the fact that he would stick with this crankhead after she did what she did with Chris Martin. Sorry but we ALL know that is true. If it were not she would not have been snubbed so badly in NYC the week of the MET Gala. That was Gwyn’s way of letting the world know it is true(all her friends and Kate’s old friends ignored the sh*t out of her) and she had an awful attitude at the party b/c of it. She freaked out b/c it confirmed what so many people had believed already. Some say he didn’t go b/c of work but most say the negativity surrounding that was too much for him and plus Lady Gaga was there and “supposedly” there is bad blood between them after he called her fat and made fun of her. They do not talk(he was even quoted as saying if she called him he would be happy to work with her again). She is not calling him ever again!! He is a douche people and let’s just ignore the sh*t out of him. and her and not give them what they want. He is desperate b/c he is losing out on so many roles and he wants to be a movie actor here in a big way. Right now…ain’t happening. You have Sam Worthington, Crowe, Clooney, the Hemsworth brothers, Paul Bettany, Rpatz, Lutz, ETC who are really sucking up the roles b/c they are talented and ooze LOTS of manliness. He is kinda on the border of that really on the outside of it. And toting bag of bones, no talent, homewrecker around does not make him appear more masculine to anyone nor does it make me like him more or want to see his show or movies. Makes me gag and wanna hurl. Nevertheless, I would like to see more of the other real actors get the attention while these two twirl themselves in circles trying to get the paps to show up at whatever movie, restaurant, hotel, etc they are at. MAJOR TURNOFF!!! Good for Orlando to get away from her. Now he has to work to repair his career. At least he had more to stand on that Skarsgag does!!! And his gf is MAJORLY beautiful and sweet and NORMAL, NORMAL, NORMAL!!! What did happen to the black guy that Askars was dating. Supposedly they were seen all over l.a. for awhile at joans, kitson, concerts and he took him to Sweden last fall. What was the deal with that? Anyone know? Well, his PR person did her calls and stunts and I am sure there are more stupid ones to come. Sad person he is and none, none of the bloggers(minus JJ) like him anymore nor her. That ain’t gonna change.

  • nicole

    yawn done with these two……

  • @nicole

    I think it’s a good idea for you to be done with these two because they’re obviously very happy and you’re not!

  • annalisa

    Hey Kate, how did Chris Martin’s d*ck taste?

  • annalisa

    I bet it tasted….married!!!

  • shine your crazy diamond…

    LOL. Take your meds, Nicole.

  • Athena

    Awwwww, they’re so cute! Love Kate and Alex!

  • L

    @nicole: Get a life.

  • Jen

    United States of Nanny is on again. Nanny-Nicole-Annalisa etc I wish your grandkids would take your computer away.

  • Have a heart for Stellan

    Stellan must be so embarrassed. He just worked with Chris Hemsworth, who got the part of Thor that Alex wanted so badly… and is having the career Alex wanted. It’s got to be hard on Stellan to watch Hemsworth, Worthington, and actors of Alex’s generation behave with class, while his own son pays paparazzi to follow him around the world playing grab ass with a piece of used party trash like Bosworth. Ouch.

  • L

    @Kris: Actually, Evan Rachel Wood was there because her boyfriend at the time (Shane West) was there as well. Totally not the same as Alex bringing Kate back to Sweden.

  • If ya like watching paint dry

    Kate has no screen presence whatsoever in Superman Returns. She thought that would be her starmaker role, only now people think of her as the worst Lois Lane in the franchise history. I got so bored with her I started noticing the amazing art deco setting. Basically, Kate gets upstaged by the furniture in the movie!

  • Dumb

    @Annalisa – Two to three weeks ago Gwyneth was interviewed and denied the bull$hit rumors people like you want to keep circulating. But I guess you know better than GP! Does it make you feel good to spread lies about people?

  • uh, no


    Actually, she had broken up with West about a month before. Can’t tell you what the sitch was between her and AS, but she definitely flew out to see him. Lots of pix to back this up.

  • Lola

    @hbgb: What candids have you seen of Ryan besides the red carpet? He’s very low key and doesn’t call the paps on himself. Kate is a Z-list actress who hasn’t been relevant since Blue Crush/Orlando Bloom, yet she’s constantly being photographed at random places throughout LA. It’s sad that Alex is falling into the Hollywood publicity machine, although I’m not surprised because Straw Dogs is going to flop at the box office. Their showmance can’t save that disaster of a movie! I doubt Alex will go far after True Blood, unlike Ryan who isn’t overexposed and relies on his talent to get work.

  • Okay

    All the hate makes me laugh. People aren’t automatically the way they seem in the press. If that were the case people would be a lot more effed up than they seem. For all we know, Kate is an amazing person and Alex just as much. The press attention may make them seem douchey but that doesn’t mean they are (or that they’re necessarily informing paps). We’ve seen Kate in a few relationships, but in the US we’ve never seen Alex in one since he’s only really had fame here for a couple of years.
    Yes, the constant attention on her is suspicious, since she hasn’t done much of late, but not so much the attention on him since he’s at least a B list celebrity with True Blood and a new-ish heartthrob. Call me naive but if anyone’s calling the paps I don’t think that it’s him – he always seems to ignore them, he quit acting for 7 years because of them.
    They don’t owe us anything confirmation-wise. Everyone knew Brad and Angelina (no, I’m not comparing their talent or anything) were a couple, but they didn’t confirm for a long time (and only then cause she was pregnant). I’m guessing that if Alex brought Kate home, there’s something more than FWB going on. And they wanted to keep it quiet, since according to one article his managers tried to claim he was in the US.
    I also think that they are purposefully trying to keep their blatant affection out of the public eye – in multiple articles over the past 8 months it was said they were seen kissing out in public, not caring about photographers. If pictures were taken to finally 100% confirm they’re a couple, wouldn’t they be on the internet? Those would be the $$ shot and would definitely be shopped around. People don’t have to be constantly groping and shoving tongues down throats to be a couple. I kind of respect that they’re trying to keep that aspect out of the public eye if they know that everything else is being seen.

    As for him losing out on Thor – I doubt he would have been able to take the role anyways – the release date was already set and filming for True Blood would have definitely conflicted – TB would have had to be the priority because of contract. Sure he could have tried to do both, but with the TB filming schedule and wacky hours, and Thor being the main character in the movie, I doubt it would have worked out.

  • A Plus

    @L: No, he wasn’t. They broke up end of July and Shane West isn’t in Straw Dogs nor was he sighted in Shreveport during that time. Wood flew out to visit Skarsgard while he was making Straw Dogs and hung out with him during Labor Day weekend. There are parade photos to back that up. No Shane West in those. Agree, something with this guy is not right. He sure sounds convinving in his interviews though. Very good actor.

  • Meg

    Please stop reporting on this. I can’t take it anymore.

    He’s lovely and deserves better than to become part of a celebrity couple with a pet name. I come here for Dita posts, but am saddened every time I see a “Skarsworth” post featured. And I’m someone who’s never paid attention to these things before.

    I’m trying to be happy for him, but I just don’t see it.

  • Ulrike

    Stockholm is small and it has already been said around the city Alexander’s family is not happy about Kate.

  • kiko

    @ulrike what’s the reason for their dislike?

  • k

    OMG… I didn’t realize there are lots of crazies here. Although most of the posts look like they’re coming from one person. Hello there(!), WAKE UP, you gotta separate fiction from reality. Get out of the True Blood world. It doesn’t matter how much you hate Alex, because (#1) he’s not really Eric, he just portrays him (#2) Bill, Sookie & Eric aren’t real people and (#3) doesn’t matter how much you put Alex down, it has nothing to do w/ the story and the progress of the Sookie series.

    I think Alex is a good actor w/ lots of talent & potential. I hope he goes far.

    I don’t like Kate since the grunge-anorexic look & she hasn’t done much work but keeps appearing in magazines. (btw, lots of hwood actresses are like that….eg . Jessica Biel) But heck, they’re both adults, it’s their choice what they want to do. And the way things are in Hollywood… it probably won’t last.

    As for that poster… get a life. You gotta separate TV from reality. geeshh

  • annalisa

    @Dumb Gwyneth Paltrow NEVER denied anythingt about Kate and Martin. Sorry but good try!

  • orly

    and this is why his sister and brother were hanging out with them and his father let them stay at his place?

  • Carla Nelson

    I’ coming from a Christian point of view> People are getting hooked up left and right because of lust. Thats why many of these Hollywood couple don’t make it when they get married because they are having sex before marriage. We as a society thinks it right just because others are doing it. KB has been from man to man and he has been with a lot of women hiself. When lust is involved everybody you sleep with is the right person to you. Just because people tell you that you make a cute couple don’t mean your right for each other. It’s obvious that he or she is not saved. When you tell the public that you will take your clothes and it is just acting that would send the wrong signal to me. AS strikes me as being ambitous. It’s nothing wrong but sometimes you can go overboared with your career to the point you are doing anything in these movies to get popular. I’m not a playa hater because I have no reason to be jealous of sin. I was once upon a time doing my own thing just like these two are doing.Lust does not last it is usually the cause of people breaking up because what got you together will also break you up. KB is a model but you can be a model and keep it clean without taking your clothes off. I know a woman who dated a male model she thought it was cute because of the attention he was getting going to these parties on his arm and I told her this man meets a lot of woman your are not the only one that thinks he is sexy and cute. What i’m trying to say here is wether you are in Hollywood are not if GOD is not involved in the relationship it is doomed.I gave this message to my own daughter who was involved in a premartial sex relationship. I simply told the both of them that because of what they were doing their relationship would soon be over. I did not tell them what I wanted to but it was GOD who told me to tell them that there time is up with each other. The poor man is heart broken they are not a couple anymore. I feel sorry for a lot of this couples who have these lavish weddings and it ends with a divorce. You have to pray that you are making the right choice that is not based on your feelings and lust. You don’t seem to mind the picture taking when you are together and getting along but when you break up you don’t want to bothered by the pap. AS shoulod be telling his son don’t rush into anything because this is Hollywood all that glitters is not gold.

  • I concede

    I just figured out the attraction. They both love wearing those hideous ankle boots :P

  • Jam

    Well I guess it has finally hit its peek… Hopefully the crazy fangirls will be gone now…

    Be gone witches! lol

  • skipper

    outside of True Blood I don’t really get his appeal.

    or hers. she’s antiseptic, though once upon a time she was lovely.

  • Carla Nelson

    Reply back to Swedie: I agree with you because the daddy knows her from being with Bloom. Probably knows how she did Orlando behind his back. Let me tell you the old saying is that if you can’t say nothing nice then don’t say anything at all. A person will just say that you are nice and go about their business but have reservations about you all along. I can recall the time my mother did not care for a person that I dated but she would still treat that person nice on the count of me. Then she told me that I had already heard about his conduct but I had to let you see it for yourself. Mothers and Fathers will treat the person nice who you date but all alone they don’t approve of it.

  • Desparate

    I can think of two possible reasons why they’re suddenly a “real” couple: he’s very close to being outed as a raging bi, and/or she has so much on him now that for the first time ever she’s in control of a relationship. When this all hits the fan it’s going to be really ugly.

  • hannah

    One of the webmistresses for a fan site says she is keeping a secret that will be announced very soon. I hear wedding bells and babies crying!!! GAG ME

  • Bad PR

    I find it hard to believe as someone else on here posted that within a 24 hour period AS pretends he’s not with her in NY but then goes on a “private holiday” with KB and displays PDA constantly in the pics from Sweden. First -how did anyone find out about your “private holiday” and to then have it documented for the press every single place they’ve gone and with whom. Really????? He has been back and forth to Sweden several times this year alone and no photos ever surfaced and no one seemed to know he was there (press wasn’t interested in snapping his pic) but now since he came back with KB their “relationship” is now of full display. So the excuse from all of those in support of this relationship that they were trying to keep it private is bs because he knew their pics were being taken and he was interviewed by the local press and he has to know this will make it back to the US. So privacy up until now can’t be the issue. He is more famous than she is in Sweden so why now are pics popping up of him out and about when we never received them before. This reeks of his new PR rep trying to do damage control for both of her clients by publicizing this “relationship” in Sweden where it would receive a better reception than here. But unfortunately the damage is done. She looks like a desparate woman following him and his friends around like a puppy and he looks like a disrespectful man who could care less about a woman he has been linked to for almost a year. They both have handled this badly and for him to all of a sudden show her affection publicly 24 hours after he snubbed her in NY and still only claim he is hanging out with friends and having fun shows him in a very bad light. Some of his fans may not like her but she may not have received the major backlash she has if he had at any point in time (prior to hiring a publicist) owned up to dating her. Instead his actions made her look like a woman with no self respect by chasing him and her reputation suffered even more because of it. That’s not how you treat a friend or girlfriend and the fact that he has done this repeatedly for the past 10-11 months makes him look bad and no amount of new PDA/”relationship pics”/red carpet walks will change what has been put out there thus far and no explanation (i.e. privacy etc.) will remove the bad taste both of their behaviors have left behind.

  • Crystal

    @poor Alex’s mum: Kate Bosworth went to Princeton (an ivy league school). She’s a very intelligent woman. I’m sure that his parents are thrilled that he’s found himself a smart girl.

  • hannah

    As an American living in Europe (most recently London, but Sweden in the past) there are very few paps in Sweden, because no one cares what famous people are doing. I would bet anything on the fact that the publicity comes from the US. I feel for the people he made a fool of, like the people who run websites who he lied to and manipulated.

  • Not true

    @Crystal: She was accepted tp Princeton as a legacy but never attended. She went to HW instead.

  • hannah

    It does not take brains to get into princeton–only money
    and she never actually went there. Only accepted because of her parents money.

  • burnt bacon

    @Crystal: No. She was accepted but never attended. Do some research before defending your hive queen.

  • I agree

    @hannah: The publicity is definitely from the US. If you actually go to the Expressen website and read the comments on all of these articles the Swedish people think this relationship display and publicity is ridiculous and don’t understand why he is now constantly in the papers and being followed by photographers. No one there is the least bit interested in their “relationship”.

  • Princeton?

    “She was accepted tp Princeton as a legacy but never attended.”

    She has said she was the first person in her family to be accepted at an Ivy league school.

  • burnt bacon

    @Princeton?: Her father is/was on the alumni board. And yes, it *is* pretty sad that I know that.

  • Jam

    Hmm the haters sure knows a lot about Kates past… Are they trying to find info about her, so that they can be more like her? Seeing as she is with their dreamman…

  • A-HA

    She was accepted but never attended! So the fact is THAT SHE IS NOT GRADUATED!and it does not imply she is not intelligent…..
    but her choice to leave studies in order to be an HW celebrity talks for her.It has been an unnecessary “sacrifice”.

  • A-HA

    Why do you always speak about Fans being jelous haters,ugly trolls and so on……. is so PATHETIC ! The most of us post here just for fun.

  • HUH?

    @Jam: Why would any woman want to be KB? Yes we all want to be KB so we can have our “boyfriend” deny our relationship repeatedly in public. We all want to walk separate from him while he looks ashamed to have been caught in public with me and not be able to show any PDA until he hired a PR rep and she said it was ok but only in Sweden. Why would any woman want a man that denies their relationship even at home in Sweden to the press? Yeah that is our ideal man and we are all fighting to get him….NOT! If the only time AS would show that he is with me is when we go away for a “private holiday” to Sweden then sorry Jam I truly believe most women would take a pass.

  • Jam


    Oh I have fun, trust me… lol

  • hannah

    She never went. Never attended a class. Not a sacrifice. She comes from money. Her intellegence for me is in question for the way she allows herself to be treated, the decisions she makes, and the movies she picks. Getting into ANY university really has nothing to do with intellegence.
