Alexander Skarsgard Talks Marines & Male Models

Alexander Skarsgard sits down with TV Guide magazine to chat about True Blood and more in this new video!

Here’s what the 33-year-old actor had to share:

On his 15-month stint in the Swedish Marines: “It was kind of in the Marines [when] I decided to try acting again. It was mentally and physically very, very tough. I hated it.”

On what he does in his spare time: “I’m a huge fan of football, or soccer, as you guys call it. Hammarby’s the name of the team – they’re from the Dirty South of Stockholm!”

Be sure to watch as Alexander reveals his bit part in Zoolander!

    Guess Alex must be keeping a low profile this week JJ since his PR team had you post an obvious old interview. This would have been great, LAST year.

    I really don’t like to watch war movies or television shows, but this looks much less “glorious” than most and with Alexander shirtless, it might be worth suffering through the harsh stuff. I adore this man. Thank you for bringing your high quality, insightful blog to my other obsession. You ladies ROCK!

    Well, he is a good actor but what is this rumour about his next film- some kind of allien movie – like battlestar gallactica.
    I mean this is ridiculous kind of choice. Come on Alex, you can do better. Please make some movie that has some point.
    Looking at his choices like in the past- Thor , Straw dogs and now this movie, I don’t think he is my kind of actor.
    In Sweden he actually made better movies than in USa. Why is that?

    Carla Nelson Says:

    I’m sorry I don’t know why he keeps cutting his hair. It takes from his looks. He looks better with a rugged look rather than a clean cut.

    Carla Nelson Says:

    I agree with you #4 in my book he never was. He is just stright up and down, nothing but height and legs. The close up scene they did in his face looks terrible even with the make up on. What happen to him. He has fell along way from season one. I thought Eric was handsome in the books.

    He used to be so hot! He’s lost weight and looks older from this interview done in the fall. Alex’s choices are suspect. I’m glad he didn’t get that cheesy sounding Thor movie. Battleship is based on a old board game and doesn’t sound much better. This guy has the acting chops to do so much better. Seems like he’s been derailed. It’s good that he’s lying low and not famewh*ring. Perhaps he can get back on track and not let others drag him down.The company you keep says a lot about who you are.

    Lauren Says:

    He’s not going to be the next Sean Penn or Daniel Day Lewis, people. Considering he wanted to be in Thor, and now this Battleship nonsense, it seems like he’s going for a more big-budget-popcorn flick type of career and not something like what Gary Oldman has.

    JM Says:

    Just read the articles saying he’s signed on to play a naval officer in “Battleship” based on the old Hasbro boardgame. What?! Is this the best Hollywood writers can come up with now? They recylce old films, old tv shows and now, old board games. I’ll hope it’s decent, for what’s left of his career’s sake, but we’ll have to see. Mabey it will be a surprise, like Clue was. That movie was hysterical! But how can you go wrong with a cast that included Tim Curry, Madeline Khan, Marin Mull, Eileen Brennan, Michale McKean and Christopher Lloyd. I won’t hold my breath though.

    Back to this archived interview. It really is sad to see how much Alex has aged in less than a year. He really needs to reevaluate his life and the company he’s keeping. ALEX! SNAP OUT OF IT!!!!!

    He’s gorgeous and sweet (I’ve met him) and I will see him in any project he makes. I’m proud to be a fan of his! I think he’s a wonderful man and a talented actor.

    Thanks OVER-AND-OUT…I was just about to repost that link with KB. The one that is practically a confirmation that she’s a coke head. That girl looks so f**ked up in those pictures it is unreal. Found it a few weeks ago in a simple Google search of
    Kate Bosworth Drugs Coke.” And surprise!!! Look what popped up, and on JJ no less.

    amanda Says:

    Oh my god people.. You really like to see the negative thing in this person? (well probably in everyone..)
    He is from Sweden, a really small country where being famous is nothing like being famous in America, people are not easily impressed in Sweden. And now suddenly everyone wants a piece of him. Or yeah we’re proud of him here and we knew he a´gas become really known, but when he was acting in sweden no one really cared about him, only that we knew he was talented and good looking.
    I can agree that he should do better kind of films than battlefield (??) but at the same time he’s got a role in Lars Von Trier’s next film with actors like Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Rampling and Charlotte Gainsbourg… Isn’t that something? And he just made the film Metropia with Juliette Lewis and Vincent Gallo, so yeah I think the guy is smarter than you think. And he definetely got talent for it. Maybe he’s just trying around a little bit? Like Jake Gyllenhaal who did a ***** films like Prince of Persia.. Nothing to say about that?

    We’re talking about movies people! Don’t take it so f*cking seriously please!

    I love Alex, but I hate the American accent he’s picked up; so uneducated sounding. He didn’t have a better english instructor?

    Reasonable Doubt Says:

    @ 16>>>Look,
    I’m getting really tired of the view point that actors and actresses don’t have any responsibility to their fans.

    Today’s actors are very lucky,but act like spoiled children compared to Hollywood stars from the 1940′s.

    Back then, the studios kept their stars under close scrutiny,and ruled over their every move, thus preserving the fantasy of the perfect Hollywood idol.

    The public never was allowed to become disenchanted and it was a win-win situation for everybody.

    The career choice of being an actor in modern times is now very, very different.

    The difference being that the actor is now independently and solely responsible for how he or she is perceived by the public.

    The reality of it is, the only way you excel (salary increase, job security etc.) at this career is from a dedicated interest of something called a

    FAN BASE!

    And a lot of Alex’s fan base has most definitely become disenchanted!
    Personally ,I’m tired of Alex’s “IMAGE GAME”

    lol, you guys are ridiculous. How quickly you turn on someone you used to like. So fickle.

    evathediva Says:

    @Carla Nelson: @Reasonable Doubt: @Reasonable Doubt: I agree with the both of you. Alex looks so much different and he has changed since hanging with BOB!!!(bagofbones).HE really is not that appealing any more. Since he signed with the new PR Firm, I hope he tries to get a complete overhaul and better image. We’ll see.

    evathediva Says:

    @L: Its our right, however, I said that at the beginning, that alot of people would turn on him, when they found out his true colors. Welcome to America bub!! Americans are VERY fairweather, and will forget you quickly. So shut up Hans.

    L Says:

    @Reasonable Doubt: His SANE fan base is still interested in him. Don’t flatter yourself by thinking your ridiculous opinions affect his career.
