Alexander Skarsgard Hides in His Hoodie

Alexander Skarsgard Hides in His Hoodie

Alexander Skarsgard tries to keep a low profile in a blue hoodie while running errands on Saturday (March 26) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 34-year-old Swedish actor recently grabbed a bite to eat at Joan’s on Third – not once, but twice!

Earlier this month, Alex attended a party for Nylon magazine’s March issue, which was hosted by girlfriend Kate Bosworth.

At the bash, Kate told the L.A. Times with a wink that she’s “of course” excited for the June premiere of Alex‘s show, True Blood.

    Like him as I do…I don’t feel it’s right to denigrate the talent of others. Nelsan Eliis Ryan Kwanten, Rutina Wesley and Deborah Ann Woll, etc( sorry for Andy, Terry and the rest of the gang I didn’t name…very bad memory)l are also fan favorites. They ALL work well as an ensemble cast and contribute equally to the success of the show. For the many of us book fans that feel we’ve been short changed…Oh, well….it’s better than nothing.



    People who want privacy do not go to pap traps..Period. How delusional are you? Just because you say crack is wack but still light up, are you still drug free?>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>NOOOOOOO…It means you are a hypocritical crack head.

    @Merrick: I see. So if you’re a celebrity you have to do all of your shopping online and/or drive miles and miles out of your way? You do realize that these people get followed by the paps, don’t you? It’s not just a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Lady Di ring any bells for you?

    Just because you are a famous face doesn’t mean that you should have to live holed up in your house, ordering in takeout and groceries because the known places that are worth going to have been staked out by the paps, and the cool little holes in the wall that you discover on your own have people who tweet that you have just shown up.

  • BBC


    They’re not famous enough. If you’re a desirable celeb like Askars the paparazzi will come.

  • Really?

    @BBC: Exactly, and they are only featured on JJ and X-17. Rarely are they included in any of the other publications or gossip rags.

  • boop

    @Kara: I didn’t say he SHOULD be friendly with them, but he certainly used to chat them up & answer their questions. There’s videos if you want proof.

  • hilarious

    They’re remaking it with Colin Farrell. Two female roles are available: one to play Sharon Stone’s part – the fake bitch wife who betrays the main dude (Kate Bosworth has apparently been asked to read which…hilarious) – and a hot asskicker of a woman who helps our hero and they end up falling in love. According to Deadline Biel is going for the latter against Eva Mendes, Paula Patton, and Eva Green. You know, I actually like her odds against those three, especially if there’s some physicality involved.

  • Cara

    So I guess my biggest question is…why were the pap’s asking about an engagement? You know if they were engaged, she would be all over the world with the ring, and getting her picture taken all over his arm. It would be sickening

  • Africanuck

    @Kit: I imagine that it’s all a question of demand. If the readers want to see a pic of ASkars more than a Sam pic, the press will pay more for an ASkars pic because it brings them more traffic / readers. I guess ASkars is a hotter commoditiy these days. Maybe the others need to get naked more often ;)

  • amtj2008

    I know I will get marked down for saying this but a lot of you “so called Alex fans” are hypocrites.

    Even when she is not mentioned in a post you all bring her up. Then if she is, the whole thing turns into a post about her.
    You say how talented Alex is and should be talked about for the work he is doing(not his personal life) but in the same sentence you bring up his never confirmed relationship. He is actually working, doing the same thing he has been doing, it is not his fault that his star power has risen since TB became more popular.
    A lot of you say he has changed but you don’t know him and you know that the media can spin anything to look a certain way. His new found douche-ness does not match with the fan encounters.
    Paps are everywhere, they actually follow people around and not just show up at “known pap spots”; so that means to avoid them Alex should never go out?
    Every time a new post comes up a lot of people holler about how tired, skinny, and worn out he looks because he has to deal with the famewh*re. His life does not revolve around a never confirmed relationship. Unlike her he works, maybe doing 15 hour days.
    JJ and maybe 2 other gossip sites are the only ones on Alex/Bonesworth tail. Anna/Stephen, Joe, Ryan, etc they all get pap’d and stuff everywhere else. Rutina and Neeson are probably the only cast members that would NOT be considered famewh*res by this logic.
    If you believe that KB orchestrated this then she is winning. Because none of you can’t stop talking about her and coming here complaining. Which means JJ keeps doing post and she will never go away. This and his “fan sites” are the only ones who have people complaining they no longer like him because of her. It is the same people planning his downfall, calling him a hypocrite; yet at Paley fest he was the main draw???
    Over half of the TB promos released feature Eric, he is a main character. If you follow TB then you know Allan said they would not shoot another opening scene and that is the only reason his name does not come up with the rest.

  • credits

    @66 – disregarding the rest of what you say as you post on JJ as much as anyone does and it hasn’t been KB free, the point you make at the end about the credits doesn’t make sense. Alan Ball doesn’t need to shoot a new opening credits sequence – but the sequence can change if the contracts allow. So there isn’t a need to shoot anything new and It’s not “the only reason” why his name doesn’t come up in the beginning of the order – he wasn’t contracted initially as a star in the show and in Season One he barely appeared. If someone becomes a regular, like Kristen, they start appearing in the opening credits, not at the end roll. When they renegotiate some of that, he may move up because clearly he, Stephen and Anna are the main characters, as evidenced by all the major magazine covers (Rolling Stone, EW, TV Guide) they got as a threesome last year.

  • @amtj2008

    I tend to agree with you but we know for a fact that Jared works with Cher (they posted a photo of the two of them together on Twitter) so I think it’s quite fair to guess that Kate is actually paying Jared to post about her. I don’t think it makes much difference whether we discuss her or not.

    However – if all ASkars fans stopped talking about her and just ignored her, maybe she’d go away :D

  • Joan


    I love you for this post and I totally agree with you.

  • Uh-huh

    His fameho clinger calls the paps on him to constantly keep him and her in the spotlight because she’s desperate for any kind of attention.

  • http://viking65 mforman

    why should AS not go food shopping when he has a free minute, having assistants do things for you would probably get a little bit boring after a while, and he doesn’t seem like the type to ask someone to do something that he can do himself, I don’t think he was raised that way.
    it is that same pap that is always yelling the KB comments, he is probably on her payroll also, he has a very distinctive voice and if you go back to X17 videos when they bother AS and surround KB with her happy, they found me smug, it is that same voice asking the same type of questions, i really hope AS doesn’ t just loose it one of these days.
    JJ has got to stop putting her name in his posts, was she shopping with him, did we see them out together yesterday, nothing warranted mentioning that famewhores name, except for the fact her checks do not bounce, this was a post about him out grocery shopping that plain and simple, but remeber where AS is on the JJ ladder, he comes after KB and Cher.
    also, that disgusting thing needs to stop mentioning TB (AB will never, ever put her in his show, he deals with actors that have talent) and Sweden, she has already insulted the country, so just stop, you sound like a bigger moron than you are already known as.
    everyone knows she is getting this unknown award for the work she does on her knees and in the bedroom. the award was bought and paid for, believe me none of the well known sites will even mention it, because they know exactly how it was gotten.
    I have said it before I have watched all of AS’s movies, and the ones that were made in Sweden are just great and woth seeing. he just needs to get that one big movie in America and I am sorry to say it isn’t going to be SD, but I know he will be given another chance and he will shock all the doubters.
    i really do believe this US Weekly article, because lies can only go so far and whenever they go out as a group, that poor man looks like he wants to get out of there as quick as possible, this show mance has run its course. also, her and her people were quite quick to use poor Bjorn’s name on these unknown websites to quote him. they pick his BBF, but KB probably doesn’t even no what those initials mean, any friends she has are on her payroll. we still do not know what she did to Lisa (Bjorn’s wife), after they went out as a group to the Village Idiot, we probably will never know, but after that they were never again seen going out as a foursome. KB really must have stepped into it this time.
    that is why i was so happy to watch E News on Friday and they said it has been reported that the “rough patch”, looks final.
    thank goodness

  • break-up hmm not again

    I believe a break up when I see that shitty actress skank bosworth with a new victim, or alex with a new women! but I am sorry to say I still think they are together. skank will do any- thing to keep alexander. and alexander to me seems very naive, very nice and easy to forgive sort of guy and I think skank bosworth can easily wrap her twisted little finger around alexander!!

    so I would not be very surprised if we get another shitty couply outing if these two this week/weekend, I am placing bets that alexander will attend the film festival when skank picks up her payed award for top notch shitty acting (what a laughable joke)!! this sunday!

    sorry fans don’t get your hopes up of a break up for the 2nd time

  • @ break-up hmmmm

    But maybe this bought & paid for award she’s getting will be the catalyst to show they are no longer together. She’ll be in the spotlight, he won’t attend due to WORKING and within the next couple of weeks, it’ll be quietly confirmed they’re over. Just in time for her to debut her new unsuspecting victim at Coachella. She’s never been one to stop & work on herself. She always has to have a man in her life and at varying times, the men seem to overlap: Orly/James… James/Leo (alleged hook up)…James/CM/Alex. The girl does have a pattern.

  • Skarsgard wannabe

    I can’t imagine who told some bigwigs in Hollywood that the world was crying out for a “Total Recall” remake but… if KB does get cast opposite Collin Farrell maybe sulky smurf will be smiley once again. The paps won’t be asking about his “rumored engagement” because they will be busy chasing down KB as she links herself to CF- real or imagined; because you know she can’t let that opportunity pass by. He’s got a few more years of recognition than AS and she can get herself photographed (at least once or twice- before he figures her out) with a guy that doesn’t look like he’s turning his nose up at a bad smell when she’s in the vicinity.

    @hilarious: I found this on the site The Stir.

    Amy Adams as Lois Lane: Don’t Pull a Kate Bosworth!

    So, back to Superman — excuse me, Superman: Man of Steel. Lois Lane is not the most daring of roles out there, but it’s Lois Lane. You have to do it. You would be insane not to. But, as a favor (to me), can you not play Lois “safely”? Be sexy, be bold, don’t be Kate Bosworth! After this weekend, I know you can do it. Oh, and if you were wondering, Amy — yes, I’m available to work as your manager. Call me.

    I know it’s off topic,Just found it amusing.



    Sorry, if Smurfgarf really wanted privacy he would go to places not frequented by pap. I drive 20 minutes to go to my favorite supermarket….not a big deal.

    Seriously, Joan”s, Chateau Marmont., The Ivy, Equinox , That sushi restaurant, The Village Idiot, Bristol Farms and other such places are known pap hangouts. People who go there WANT to be papped.

    Worthskars is not a blip on anyone’s radar …try as they wanted to be. People were trying to get the money shot of Renee Zellweiger and Bradley Cooper…not these C/Z listers. It’s a shame…in 2009 he was climbing onto the B list. Bad company and choices led him to these silly famewh*ring maneuvers. Albeit, I think he actually likes Joan’s but he knows the deal and should stop being juvenile about it.

    Alexander Skarsgard took refuge from the rain in LA on Saturday with the help of his blue hoodie. He was out running errands solo after a busy week of meeting up with his friends and sticking to his intense gym routine.

    JJ doesn’t seem to want me to put down the bread crumb trail to Beachmint which is the mother company of Tackymint or their investors Anthem Ventures, Trinity Ventures and New Enterprise Associates. I keep getting moderated even though the info is listed on their public websites. Google the names and their portfolios will come up under their home page if you are interested in seeing how many millions have been invested in tackymint since last June. It’s in the 8 figures.


    @Follow the money:

    They had announced that they had invested $10M more into Tackymint Pretty soon the Q10 or quarterly report will come out. Considering the hard sell on twitter and all the 2 fer sales, I’m thinking it didn’t do too well. Very surprised that RZoe would have something like that on her blog…but then again, money is money.

  • Nikki

    @MERRICK: I usually agree with your comments, but I’m sorry I disagree with this. Obviously you’ve never been to Los Angeles. The traffic is HORRIBLE and since this season of TB is mainly about Eric, he probably has the busiest schedule so why would he drive an extra 20 minutes to get things that are right around the corner from his house? Don’t you think he’d want a little down time? What if he just needed milk? That’s hardly a reason to drive to a store further from you. And Equinox? That’s obviously the most convenient for him as well. What you’ve basically said in your comment is that you expect a man with a full schedule to go out of his way to go about daily routines just so he doesn’t get photographed. Alex is not stupid, and you’re making him out to be that way. He’s thousands of miles from his family so it’s understandable that he goes to Joan’s often- he’s obviously comfortable there and enjoys the food. Many celebrities go to Joan’s, and it is a known pap restaurant, but you’re saying that he should stop going there and go somewhere else if he “truly” wants privacy? If he went to another restaurant for lunch, don’t you think the paparazzi would eventually find out and hound him there??? I don’t know why you even brought up the Village Idiot or the sushi restaurant…he was only photographed there once and KB is probably the one that tipped them off. In Hollywood, it’s all about your relations with others. That’s how people get offered jobs so of course he’s going to go to the Chateau. People are in and out there having drinks with colleagues/potential employers all of the time. You are truly crazy to expect him to alter his routine for “privacy”. No, the paparazzi need to get the hint that maybe he isn’t having a good day and doesn’t want to deal with their sh*t. They should know by now that he isn’t going to answer their questions.

  • Rachel()

    @Ladybug#87: Imo the jewelry on ****mint sucks. About 90% of it’s ugly, and the rest of it is not nice enough to be worth 29.99. I took the little fashion quiz on the site the other day, that’s supposed to gauge your fashion tastes, and even the clothes in the pictures they have you choose between are seriously gross.
    @MERRICK: I see your interest in ASkars has turned into full blown hatred. I’m still on team Alex, but I can see how your feelings have changed. Hopefully the breakups for real, so she doesn’t eventually poison me against him!
    @mforman: I usually like your posts, but they’re difficult to read. Capitalization? Not trying to be mean!! = )


    My point is he’s still not big enough or news worthy enough for paps to actually “hound” him. He’s dating a Z list bottom feeding famewh*re not Natalie Portman or Sandra Bullock.

    Did you know that his brother, Gustaf was here for 3 months? No? Neither did I. He could have used the exposure going places with his brother but choose to legitimately work at getting jobs by attending meetings, not tabloid exposure .

    That’s an actor I think that values his privacy.

    You know what? A lot of us have tougher schedules than reading lines, sitting around waiting for our scenes or getting make up applied and wardrobe fitting. I like the guy , but he’s not a policeman or fireman or someone who does physical labor that would truly exhaust him.

    He chose to play the fame game. Yes, he has to get milk…so do many BIG stars that are always bothered by paps…they chose to ACT LIKE THE PAPS AREN’T THERE.Why……because they’re actors. Like anyone else that you ignore , they’ll eventually see you’re not playing the game and stop. Why put on a hood and draw further attention, like you’re the Uni-bomber? Eye forward, put away groceries, get in car and drive away….no biggie.

    No one is asking him to stop global warming or the for a plan to help Japan. It’s stupid questions that doesn’t even warrant an eye blink. sandra Bullock must still get some obnoxious sh*t hurled at her but she’s not pissy and acting juvenile. She goes about her business. In the scope of HW , Skars is still not important If he can’t handle this minuscule level of pap coverage, what will happen if he hits it big with Battleship or anything else in the future?

    He chose to associate with a HW pariah/ joke whose achievements are based solely on the men she knows, not talent or hard work. I hope he enjoys Vail when Hole gets the award given to her by Kevin Spacey from a “film festival” he’s in partnership with. Spacey gave her 3 roles that she failed miserably at, so why shouldn’t he give her an award for “Excellence in Acting”? Really, has anyone seen ANY stellar review that she’s gotten for acting? LINK PLEASE.

    Seriously, for anyone to come back and state I’m crazy and jealous, we’ve all worked with or known people who’ve gotten jobs solely on connections not hard work. Personally, I despise these people and have very little respect for them or people they hang with. Most assume that people they associate with are exactly like them. Might not be true but that’s the general assumption. Alex has been painted by the same brush despite actually being a good actor. I’ve seen so many BS comments about him getting jobs because of Stellan since his association with Hole. HW is not different than any other job, nor are the people different from any of us.. If we see funk attached to her, don’t you think they do to? Unfortunately, Skars has some of it attached to him.

    Btw, how’s he been getting food all the other times he’s not been papped at the grocery store? Besides Joan”s.

    What gym did he belong before Equinox? Don’t know either. Surely he’s been exercising for the past 5 years before he joined pap friendly Equinox?

    He seems to be able to be invisi mode 3 weeks out of the month then suddenly the paps find him for a week or so…then he disappears again.

    Bottomline, I hate the game, not the player. Seems like until he joined Hole’s PR team he had lots of privacy. Looks likes one of the many things he regrets he did in 2010. Buyer’s remorse.

    Just my opinion like everyone else has their opinion. Night.



    Hatred? What kind of drama queen are you? I call Bullsh*t when I see it.

    I like this thing called logic. How ….come ….he ….gets….. food ….all .. the …other …..times….and no… ……see…..him?

    Unless of course you actually believe he’s bought food for the rest of the month in that one bag? It doesn’t even look like food for last him 2/3 days.

    He dealt with a known famewh*re and has done some really douchey famewh*rey things since then….Going to Bristol farms and buying one bag(beer?) with Khate before Valentines Day was suspect…Going there again and getting practically nothing again is suspect. Since people claim what a b*tch LA traffic is and what little time he has….why would he not stock up to save himself from the exhaustive trip and providing more pap opportunities?

    I got some scenic swamp land. Are you interested?

    In the real world people like people all the time but don’t necessarily approve of or like the things they do. I like him but he cannot turn water into beer. I’m still a fan that hopes he can turn things around.

  • Rachel()

    @MERRICK: Um…not being a drama queen. Just observing that you’ve started ripping into Alex a whole lot more than you have in the past. Your posts definitely sound like you dislike him whether you mean them to or not. Just saying…

  • Duckman Walking

    @Merrick Welcome to the dark side. Why do I feel like I should say “daaaahhhkkk siiiiiiide?” Anyway, gotta say I agree with your last posts. Like the guy, but I can only give him a pass for so long before I realize I’m making excuses for him because I like him. I believe in equal opportunity ripping, and if KB is getting a perpetual smackdown for this behavior, he’s next in line. Some would think it really naive of Skars to not be aware of what’s going on around him in spite of what he’s said and doesn’t say. It would also appear to some that he’s taken the advanced course in douchey famewh0rey things and learned from the best in the biz. @Merrick, I like that line. “I hate the game, not the player.” If the player can play the game and still come out on top, then more power to him I suppose. But at what cost?

    Now I’m just going to go back over here and sit next to what appears to be a duck, call some spades “spades,” and watch the trainwreck from the sidelines.



    Besides saying he shouldn’t act pissy and juvenile when being papped at known pap hangouts, what else negative have I said about him? Btw, I say the same thing all the time…so I don’t know how all of the sudden it’s become a “HATE” thing.

    @Nikki: z

    . “You are truly crazy to expect him to alter his routine for “privacy”.

    Riddle me this,since he ROUTINELY eats and does grocery shopping, exercises and runs errands ,why is he not ROUTINELY papped? Please explain in a manner my crazy self can understand.
