Alexander Skarsgard Doesn't Wear A Sock During Nude Scenes

Alexander Skarsgard Doesn't Wear A Sock During Nude Scenes

Alexander Skarsgard tells Rolling Stone that he doesn’t mind being in the buff while shooting sex scenes for True Blood. (He’s on the mag’s cover with co-stars Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin.) Here are some select quotes from the 33-year-old Swedish god:

On his vampire character: “I like to think about Eric like he’s a male lion. He
looks so relaxed, his heartbeat is probably 15 beats a minute, but you don’t know if he’s going to pounce, or attack, or yawn.”

On staying mysterious: “I don’t want people to know too much about me. It’s easier for people to suspend disbelief that way. There’s a risk when people see you in a part and they’re watching Alexander Skarsgard. Also, I learned from my father to keep your integrity and protect your family – there are certain things that you can talk about and certain things you shouldn’t talk about.”

On not wearing a sock while shooting nude scenes: “I don’t want a sock around it, that feels ridiculous. If we’re naked in the scene, then I’m naked. I’ve always been that way.”

True Blood creator Alan Ball on how ridiculous celibate vampires are: “To me, vampires are sex. I don’t get a vampire story about abstinence. I’m 53. I don’t care about high school students. I find them irritating and uninformed.”

    Oh, I wouldn’t worry too much about the Twilight comparison. Doubt Ball ever saw it. I love Askars as much as anyone but I truly am going to buy him some new stories so he can keep doing interviews and I don’t have to read the same ones over and over. That lion quote in particular. And what’s the whole “there are certain things you shouldn’t talk about” nonsense? His refusal to claim Bosho? Oh Alex. You are so, so fab looking, please get over this phase and move on..quick!

    If he wants to stay “mysterious” he needs to drop about 100 lbs… I think you know what I mean.

    Weird Says:

    This cover is just stupid. True Blood needs to chill out or people are going to get burnt out on it.
    Alex is handsome but they all look ridiculous.
    Anyways if he wants people to respect him then he should actually practice what he preaches. That would give him a lot of integrity to start. In addition, if he actually dated someone who was not a famewh*re homewrecker who was down to earth(VIP section anyone) then people might really respect him and believe that he has integrity. He is no Leo nor will he ever be.

    Why can’t you like both… I love twilight and True Blood for what they both bring to the table. With True Blood you get sex and love and twilight you get love and romance. Can’t we have our cake and eat it too, why does it have to be one or the other?!?!

    Laura Says:


    Oops, I meant with True Blood you get sex and ‘LUST’ not love

    The Real Eva the Diva Says:

    I don’t like the cover. I cannot appreciate Alex’s fioness because of the wierd blood cover and poses. LOL They should have done seperate covers, like Alex, Stephen and Ann, and then Joe M, without the blood.

    Maybe the should have paid Hans to lick all the blood off. I’m sorry, Beel is okay, put Anna is not attractive at all.

    Yes Weird he needs to Date me! I am not a famewh*re homewrecker and am so down to earth it’s not even funny. :)

    Usually, anything that has Skarsgard naked in/on it is good with me, but there’s something off about this cover. Maybe it’s the way they’ve tilted the whole thing to make Stephen Moyer less short. Maybe it’s how squished Anna Paquin’s boobs are underneath Moyer’s hand. Maybe it’s the weak Pollock streaking pattern of the fake blood. Whatever, of course I’m still going to buy it.

    High school students are all irritating and uninformed? Then what’s everyone else’s excuse who’s not in high school? Alex is a pretentious ****, along with his soon-to-be-over show.
