Alexander Skarsgard: 'Melancholia' Playing at Cannes!

Alexander Skarsgard: 'Melancholia' Playing at Cannes!

Alexander Skarsgard shows a little skin while hugging a friend before having lunch at Joan’s on Third on Wednesday (March 2) in Los Angeles.

The 34-year-old True Blood actor’s new film Melancholia was just announced to play the Cannes Film Festival this May!

The film is described by director Lars von Trier as an “end of the world” movie and is about two sisters (Kirsten Dunst and Charlotte Gainsbourg) whose lives are drifting apart as the universe spectacularly unravels.

Melancholia also stars Kiefer Sutherland and Alexander‘s dad Stellan.

    Whoever this woman is she seems a much better match for Skars than Bonesworth.

    Good for them. LVT’s films usually go to Cannes so no surprise really. I’d be more surprised if it didn’t actually. Skars in a tux!

  • NY

    His hair always looks gross and unwashed and kind of like it probably smells.

  • NRich

    I think he looks good. But then again, he always does.


    He looks great and still not grumpy. I hope he had another happy Baldylocks free day.

  • Eresyn

    I hope that friend is KB’s replacement ;)

    Kiefer….Stellan and Alex….great cast.

  • @NY

    It’s gel ;)

    He looks good and it’s nice to see him smile and with other people than Beige. Funny, how we actually often see him with other people, but not her. I wonder why that is.

  • The Myths

    Myths about alexander skarsgard:
    “he’s talented” but doesn’t get roles in movies and his Eric is more about looks. Peaked with Generation Kill (playing a marine–> he was a marine in Sweden)
    “he looks better with age” because he has work done, like teeth fixed, work out (he’s slim), he has more money to “Ken up”
    “Kate Bosworthless mystery” there’s no mistery, they’re alike. His family probably doesn’t like their show. Period.
    “He’s so handsome” yes, he’s tall, has an accent and (thanks to gym) is hunky. But he’s a butterface, or butterhead in this case. His face is cute if you like seahorses.

  • KJ


    Looks like Kate is there too. Her hair appears to be darker.

  • ashley


    i wouldn’t be surprised. one of my friends that have met him says that that AS plays the field a lot with both men and women. :D

  • john

    i’m pretty sure he’s in the closet

  • FreeSpirit71

    In the closet as in Nelly Fang? Probably. But he’s still hot! I’d rather think he’s banging guys then banging Kate.

  • yum

    Nice belly. He’s beautiful.

  • Holly


    That woman it’s note Kate. Sorry, fangirl.

  • oh M GEeeeee

    @Henry: why do you always try to out the black guy as his boyfriend you racist beoytch?. I know who you are , you do that shits on a fansite all the time. Stop it, its flucking racist, and you are trying to be funny, but its really lame. He is a friend from Sweden, you damn simpleton.

  • @KJ

    I cannot see kate in those pics???. kate has bright blond bleeched hair and would have made sure she was photographed with alex
    at lest that lady gets nice big hug from alex more than kate ever does. there are some new JJ pics of kate coming from LAX.

    i see lisa larsson is back?

  • julie

    nelly fang appears to be in full force.

  • Lory

    I want a hug from Alex, too . It looks delicious.

  • FreeSpirit

    To the person stealing my tagname to right that muck, nice try.

  • Sunbug

    It’s really nice to see Lisa Larson back on the scene. The friend he’s with also works on TB. He was seen in the wrap party video. They probably went for lunch during a break from shooting. He looks good and seems to still be beige free. If she was so important to him, you’d think he’d be with her instead after not seeing her for a week.
    The Alex that we love is coming back and bringing with him the friends we haven’t seen since KB took over and poluted his life.

  • Yay

    Ahh, more beigeless Skars is always a good thing. Having lunch with friends. Showing affection. Not looking like someone put Ex-Lax in his beer. Talking about his projects and not his cling-on. All good. By the way, that’s Lisa Larson, not boney-maroney bleach blonie.

  • kiki

    I want to lick his tummy.

  • lol

    I was watching one of those pap videos and over the weekend someone asked him how Kate was. He did not answer and it did not look happy when asked that.

  • leave freespirit alone

    @ faux FreeSpirit71 post 15

    stop stealing other pples name you crazy person. and quit with the nelly fang sh*t

    what has ( real) freespirit ever done to you???

  • seeshay

    I’m no KB fan so this has been one sweet week of lots of good pics. Always nice to see him look so relaxed and happy with friends and he’s great to look at whether in a Tom Ford suit or here in jeans.

  • Kaz simply Amaazingg !!!!!!!

    He like old and nothing

  • Kaz simply Amaazingg !!!!!!!

    I know people here love old man with rot and hate youn celeb

  • Kaz simply Amaazingg !!!!!!!

    Good for yo take ald man rot ahahahahahahahaha ;-)


    From all the thumbs downs, negative posts and juvenile name stealing I see the Dementors have come out to play. I guess their dead lairs with all the in house fighting is even too much for them.

  • Prettylittlethings

    He has been looking so relaxed and happy lately. It is lovely to have him back to his old self again. Now if we get a lot more skin on TB this year it will be a perfect year no? Need equality, have full frontal for women lets do it for the men, at least for Askars!!

  • Famewh0ring again

    FAS boy doing his photo-ops again. Next!

  • wikkie

    Glad to see Alex hanging with friends even if he is not smiling. Can’t wait to see him on the new season of TB, you know after fast forwarding through the other 50 characters boring story lines….

  • Nory

    ASkars at Joan’s… this is almost weekly.
    He’s too old for all this “sex symbol” path. I hope he changes before he becomes a “has been”.


    Seems like the bitter KB stans are finally getting that Alex is not happy with Baldylocks, hence all the nasty posts and thumbs down.

    I love that the one or two name changing posters are making successive posts at 3-4 minute intervals. Obvious much? It really bites your @asses that he looks happy and is pictured smiling at events without the Clingon. I’d be happy too if I knew I wouldn’t be embarrassed by or have to babysit some cranked out drunk.

    Btw, why isn’t the fashion icon at Paris fashion week?Oh, yeah…she can come back to town knowing that the Oscar parties she wasn’t invited to are over.



    Since seeing him with the Joan’s bag on set, I think he actually likes Joan’s. Not that I’m excusing any obvious famewh*ring.

    Btw, no one is too old to be a sex symbol. It’s a matter of personal taste.

  • Doreen

    LOL, good to know that Alex is, in fact, capable of showing affection to women he actually likes.



    ITA. It’s killing the bitter KB stans that always like to say he’s Scandinavian and therefore not physically demonstrative. The guy hugs and kisses everyone but Baldylocks. He’s even smiling at that old man in the picture.

  • Buttercups

    Have you actually been checking this post for 2 HOURS?!

  • http://viking65 mforman

    why KB crazies always have to start with the Nelly Fang stuff. his life is his business, who he wants to be with is his business, as long as he stays away from that no talent famewhore. the minute he is getting more notice and postings than her and starts looking as amazing as we all know he does, she cannot stand that and has to start saying nasty things about him, she has to be the center of attention, she only matters to herself and so she or her paid for people post cruel and untrue things about him.

    he looks great, relaxed and having fun with his real friends who have his best interests at heart. they care about him and you can tell that from just a picture.


    ^^^Oops, meant to say at Doreen. Failing at multi tasking again.

  • Doreen

    No worries MERRICK, I got ya. :)

  • Doreen

    I hope Alex can go to Cannes….alone that is.

  • Doreen

    I hope we get to see Alex at Cannes….alone.

  • Doreen

    Sorry for the multiple posts, JJ keeps messing up for me.



    Same as you. This is brain candy, you know , something to do between real things. It’s especially good when you have writer’s block trying to do a essay.

    How many times have you changed your name? Seems like an awful waste of time to switch names, profiles, go on proxy sites to make negatives, vote thumbs down and act like teenagers. In fact my teenage daughter and her friends get a kick out some of the posts that I’ve informed them come from women in their 30′s , 40′s and 50′s. They think you’re officially worse that TwiMoms. But then again, they hate Twilight anyway.

  • lilla

    Wow, lots of haters out there. I’ve actually met, hugged and talked to the man. He’s about as nice as they come, sorry haters. I hope happy Alex is here for good. And, for the record, he smells amazing, even after being on set for 10+ hours.

  • grandma

    just a thought… maybe he doesn’t seem loving or affectionate with Kate because she’s missing the right tools. And by tools I mean a penis
