Alexander Skarsgard: 'True Blood' Hits PaleyFest 2011

Alexander Skarsgard attends PaleyFest 2011 Presents True Blood on Saturday (March 5) at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 34-year-old Swedish actor participated in a panel with co-stars Anna Paquin and her husband Stephen Moyer, along with True Blood creator Alan Ball.

“Things are definitely not stable for Eric,” Alexander said about his character’s upcoming storyline. “He doesn’t know who he is anymore. He’s very lost.”

Check out a teaser for True Blood‘s fourth season, which features a shirtless Alex!

    Who cares who he is dating? He is an ACTOR for God sake. If he did not date Kate he would have dated some other blond bimbo. Actors usually do. And who cares if she was back stage or not. Even if she was not they are still dating.

  • Eyeroll

    We get p*ssed when she’s mentioned in the JJ summary. When she’s not, everyone talks about her. Can’t we please just enjoy a post of him, about him, and about his work? I’m sick to death of her all ready.

  • julie

    @Eyeroll: it’s never going to happen until he quits “dating” her. sorry.

  • Emily

    He looks so happy! He always seems to be in good spirits when he’s around the cast and fans of the show.

    Plus, I guess it wouldn’t be a Jared post without something claiming to have “inside information”. If she was there, who the hell cares. She can take comfort in knowing her boyfriend has a real job while she’s stuck watching from the sidelines. Whatever. Can’t wait until S4!

  • MadAboutTheBoy

    He looked hot as hell, both in the clips and on the stage.

  • @ post 42

    you were the only one who seen kate? god knows how many pple who were at the paley and nobody seen kate no tweets, no fb sightings. hmmmmm I think all you re doing is trying to stir up askars fan ladies. you have spoilt a nice JJ post with your crap CONGRATULATIONS.

    @Really tech
    well said glad someone was at the paley who can confirm that kate was not there hope you had a good time

  • All the family in town…

    @Lily: Why? I’m not using my daddy’s name to be a forced model.

  • Susie

    I like him as an actor. That’s it.

  • who’s worthless?

    “By 2004 Alexander was ready for a change professionally, seemingly being cast perpetually as the hunk in his native Sweden. So he made the move to Los Angeles. At first he had trouble finding work, and in order to keep working he often found himself travelling back home for roles.”

    “Alexander was on vacation visiting his dad when Stellan’s agent set him up with some auditions. ”
    source: and others.
    Then he played “iceman”, a marine (like himself), now he plays a VIKING vampire… big acting.

    He didn’t get the role in Thor. He sucks just like his girlfriend-whatever.

  • Plastic Surgery?

    Did Alex have work done. He looks different! I mean it my not be plastic surgery but perhaps he had some work done like chemical peels like his gf. He looks off. Maybe it’s the teeth

  • Doctor Dean

    He looks ill and old. His hottness has been sucked out of him by Beigeness. He needs to take care of himself he has anorexia face.

  • Caitlan

    my 2cents is JJ picked the best fotos coz he did’nt look like the old handsome askars we knew n loved. things r taking the toll now on his apearance

  • whatever

    He is still hot!!!!!!!!!!!!! sure not same Alex he was but still hot!!!!!!!!!!!
    Give him a break, he has had skeletor draining him and been working hard. Meanies!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Alex has granpa’s chin

    @Plastic Surgery?: IA, and he smiles with his fake teeth, uses make-up… I agree, JJ chose the best pictures.
    F*** Alex, why are you a himbo? You were so adorkable and cute!

  • Alex has granpa’s chin

    @Plastic Surgery?: OMG! I just noticed: the eyebags are almost gone and his face has a pink color.

  • MadAboutTheBoy

    What’s with the comments? Bills Babes upset that Skars got a MUCH louder round of applause?

  • Becks

    he looks as hot as always to me…you should read your comments…no sense really….anywway hot guy

  • Becks

    @Celia: is Sookie…

  • Can’t Understand Why

    why all of the sudden everyone is hating him…I love him, he’s dreamy and looks great, but then again I bet your boyfriends are way better-looking than he is….this is not posting comments is more like a chat between the same 10 people…

  • Becks knows best

    @Becks: couldn’t say it better myself. he looks so normal, hot as always, totally happy and I don’t know the thing about surgery or whatever, he looks so gorgeous, what Wrong with you people?

  • Dieter

    @Becks knows Best
    LOL not everyone is a diehard fan of Alex it’s JJ not world of Skarsgard, he looks different thats why peope are speculating that he had something done it’s hollywood and he’s an actor his looks are a commodity, not too unresonable that he had work done he’s nearly 40 , he has to be vain if he’s with Kate Bosworth.

  • @Alex has a Grandpa chin

    So does Kate lol ie grandpa chin!

  • Metrosexual

    This dude is GAY, he shaves his chest eww… Eric character is manly he does not shave his chest he has chest hair lol

  • veruca

    When would he have had time to get work done? Yes, his face is red, but last week he had sunglasses sunburn lines, so the red face makes sense. We’re just not used to seeing him smile, and the face looks different when you’re seeing a different facial expression.
    @Metrosexual: He doesn’t shave his chest – no, his chest isn’t hairy, but his smattering of chest hair is blonde. Just google image ‘alexander skarsgard shirtless’ and you’ll see.

  • Sunbug

    He looks better than ever. Got deafening applause at Paley last night that went on much longer than anyone elses. I think we’ve got a bunch of bitter Bill fans on here. He’s getting the fame and getting Sookie this year. It’s finally Eric’s turn and all us bookies know once you’ve had the”GP” you never go back. Here’s hoping for some full frontal to go along with his gorgeous ass.

  • Dieter

    His azz is kind of flat so no not interested in being crass by seeing his azz again and full frontal ,your creepy

  • Dieter

    His azz is kind of flat so not interested in being crass seeing his azz again nor seeing him full frontal, your creepy!

  • amtj2008

    I see Alex can’t win, finally a post about work. Something all of his “so called fans” have been begging for instead of what they believe is famewh*ring photos. A post with no mention of the demon spawn, yet a lot of people want to bring her up. I do not see plastic surgery, the last pictures of him was paps intruding on his workout time, of course he looks like sh*t. Both sets of work photos has him looking happy and refreshed, his bags seem to go away when he is either made-up or happy. He always looks better right after and before he films.

    I just hope Ball does not f*ck-up this season like 3, too many new characters and boring strorylines. Eric will ave amnesia but Ball has plans to put Bill and Sookie back together. My friend went to the TB panel, I am going to Supernaturals, and he said everyone was awesome and happy. But Ball’s a big fat liar who gave vague answers, like he did last year but didn’t deliver on, about Russell, Godric and Eric interaction.

  • Eyeroll

    He’s had his teeth fixed. So what? How many of you have had braces, retainers, used Crest whitening strips, or had a pallet expander for example? I doubt he’s had any other “procedures”.

  • Becks

    @Dieter: I’m not a diehard fan of Alex, i just think he’s good looking and all of the sudden seems to be hated by everyone….idk if its because he’s dating the bosworth girl or what… But then once again I guess u girls are more attractive than her and Alex would be dying for you…..anyway i cant wait for s4 :) love to everyone

  • Damn Hilarious!!!

    @Becks: KAte is not attractive, so I do not want to look like her, ummm, I think most women would take Halle Berry over her anyday , so miss me with that bullshit. I will say, that I am dissappointed, Alex ‘s character has taken a step backwards in the sexy department, he looks like a dork in this trailer, and he looks nothing like the first, nor 2nd season Alex. Even though he looks good in the Paley photos!!!

  • C’mon

    Let’s get real. Kate is very skinny (we know why) but if she just start eating normal, I’m sure she over the average in beaty and she has a doll face.
    I won’t denige she’s not very smart, tho.
    For now, Kate has the bulimia chin and gross legs. I hope she gets healthy, boyfriend hasn’t been much help…

  • C’mon

    ^should say: –she’s over the average in beauty–

  • chelle

    I thought this post was about Askars not beigeho…..just saying

  • Nikki

    @Metrosexual: He doesn’t shave his chest. If you’d watch some of the other seasons where he is shirtless, you can see hair on his chest but it is blonde and very fine.

  • Becks

    @Damn Hilarious!!!: I didn’t mean that any of you want to look like her, personally I wouldn’t like, but she is so hated …and why? for being sick? poor girl, she’s not ugly, she’s just very unhealthy….and Alex, well Idk if I hadn’t read the comments I’ wouldn’t be speculating anything….he’s just sunburn….it happens you know….

  • BeccaAldridge

    @amtj2008: he just can’t win!! he’s either a famewhore, ugly, or who knows what more…..
    what if he’s dating Kate Bosworth (Yeah I know I’m gonna get a lot of dislikes in here, shocker), is his life, I’m just a fan of true blood and seeing him happy and being around is pretty nice…but that’s all…get down a little

  • Belle

    Secretly, I hope that Alex marries Kate Bosworth. Not only because he loves her, but also to spite all of his so called ‘fans’ that talk trash about her and their relationship. He’s a big boy, he can make his own decisions and find his own bliss.

  • Yuck, he’s a climber

    So it didn’t work with Evan Rachel Wood (she ended all), it didn’t work with Amanda (she chose Dominic)…
    Alex is a desperate old guy.

  • Sarah

    @Yuck, he’s a climber: Actually, he broke up with Evan because he began to have feelings for Kate, and he didn’t want to string Evan along. That’s why Evan and Alex are still friends, because they were honest about their feelings.

  • Blackcat99

    @Becks: I think she is hated more for he actions than her looks.She is a user and a manipulator.She is also a Huge Snob.Why? I do not know.Lets not forget that she she has no qualms about going after other womens husbands,fiances and boyfriends if she thinks it can boost her failing career..Even if she is friends with them.She is a TAKER.When is the last time she has done anything for charity besides donate a dress that was probably one of the FREEBIE’s she is always getting.Did I mention her lack of talent.

    I think she uses the poor I’m starving myself thing to get back or hold on to men as long as she can.As soon as Orlando wanted out is when it started and she guilted him into staying for as long as he did.Hard to feel sorry for someone like that.

  • Missed it

    Let’s get the stories straight at least. Evan and Alex stopped seeing each other mutually. She’d just broken up with Marilyn Manson, because she wanted a ring and he wouldn’t cave. She and Alex date briefly, then she and Alex stop seeing each other and magically Evan and Marilyn are back together and Alex is making ‘Straw Dogs’ with Kate and they start dating. It’s not rocket science, Evan was using Alex to make Marilyn jealous. How else would he react knowing she was dating one of the hottest guys on the planet when he looks like an autopsy gone wrong?
    I think he looks amazing at the Paleyfest panel and who gives a crap who he dates? He can stick it anywhere he wants as far as I’m concerned, and more power to him.

  • JustStupid


    Yes, let’s see him marry her and bury the rest of his career.

  • Yuck, he’s a climber

    @Sarah: @Missed it: nop, she ended things because Alex like is a player, she was trying with all the actress to get more press attention.
    ERW said “Alex’s shit was too weak” really. :)
    *** ***
    Lainey’s words: “But Skarsgard? Vain, weak, dumb. And poor Evan must have been confused and hurt, fertile emotional territory for a predatory monster. Shortly afterwards, she and Marilyn Manson had not only reunited, they also announced their engagement. “


    a bit dumb
    love the booze / drugs ( google for more
    the big difference is that Amanda is a actually TALENTED and make movies.


    I’m lost…he’s gay, famewhore, dating a whore, dated whores, metrosexual, stupid, talentless..I can’t get this straight …I think I’d just stick to SERIOUS RELATIONSHIPS AND REAL ACTORS such as Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, There is the Talent peopleee!!! Twilight…

  • Cold path to stardom Fixed for you:
    he’s gay (I don’t think so), famewhore (hell yes), dating a ***** (there are different kind of whores), dated whores (nah), metrosexual (well, he use more make-up, and had a lot of work done, find old pictures of him), stupid (sometimes), talentless (yep, most of the time).

  • GreenCAT

    I can’t wait for season 4! But…shouldn’t Eric be walking…nekkid? :P


    @Cold path to stardom: why is he a famewhore…he’s promoting the show he is starring…is not like he’s on other people premieres to get photographed…idk…
