  • Kim

    Wow! Another pap shot—looks like that PR money is flowing again. I mean, JJ mentions Alex is wearing Nike and he keeps mentioning that he walked his ‘girlfriend’ dog! Of course, he has to add that True Blood is coming on. Perfect and sad!

  • Pretty

    OH god he is soooooo hot and pretty.

  • Pretty

    @Kim he’s just doing his daily thing and the paps knows that. I don’t see the problem here how is that PR?

  • Yo-Landi

    Alright, I’m focking sick and tired of seeing that guy….. Though I’d hit it. Look at that bottom part WOWzyyyyy. DAMN.

  • poser

    What I don’t understand is how people don’t think he is in on the PR game. Regardless of the true nature of their relationship, by saying he isn’t part of it and pinning it all on Bonesworth is essentially saying he is an idiot. Come on Alex, show us more of your pouty face. You know we love it!

  • Kim

    @poser:

    I totally agree with you. Plus, Alex and Kate have the same publicist.

  • Mike

    Oh yay, here come the negative Nancy’s. LOL! Looking good!

  • @pretty

    It isn’t just the daily gym pics. It is a combination of things. If it were just here and there, I could see it being happenstance. But he is on overexposure right now and looking more and more beige every day.

  • Jessie

    Alex looks hot here. Nice tight shirt showing off those pecs. Hello sexy!

    LOL! I can’t wait for a certain board to start speculating that someone’s back in town because he’s got the black bag again. *eye roll*

  • poser

    It isn’t simply daily gym pics. It is a combination of all of it. He is on total overexposure right now and looking more and more beige every day. Don’t hate on me just because you don’t want to believe your precious Alex would be so low to famewh*ore himself out like his dear GF.

  • loveskars

    1) stop mentioning the Bos’ dog, no one gives a shit
    2) OH MY GOD HE IS SO GORGEOUSSSSS *dies* look at those pecs, jesus christ ahhhh!

  • Bikini Kill

    Absolutely f*ckin gorgeous………look at those d*mn pecs tryin to burst out into the world baby!!!!!!!!!!!!! Set them free Alex, set them free!!!!!!

  • Umm

    does he not own any other gym shirts besides this one & the white one?

  • Jessie

    For people wondering if or why Alex might not be at Comic Con, Skarsgard News said that Alex is still trying to figure out movie filming schedules.

  • Mike

    @Umm:

    Uh yeah, he has a blue one and a longer sleeved black one too. As someone who goes to the gym, people usually have certain shirts/shorts reserved for working out. It’s not like people have an entire wardrobe dedicated to go to the gym. People who do aren’t really there to workout I would think. Most people at my gym only have about 2-3 outfits they were regularly.

  • chelle

    Damn he looks sooo hot! Those gym days are definitely paying off!

  • Emily

    You can pretty much guarantee that every Skarsgard post will include a reference to Jared’s paycheck, AKA Kate Bosworth. Sad that Skarsgard associates with such leeches.

  • Kim

    @poser:

    I honestly don’t know if its Alex or his PR team that is doing this. I am still undecided who is doing this, but someone is calling the paps on him.

  • Looking Good

    The paps hang out at this gym because many celebrities go there. Gerard Butler was photographed there a few days ago. Alex is not a famewhore, Kate is a famewhore. One of the things that lets you know the difference is the paps getting them going in some where like they were called and told where to be. When someone is leaving, that’s usually a tip off from another source like someone working at the establishment. I wish JJ would lay off mentioning Kate’s dog. I really think that Alex was setup. He was asked to take the dog for a run and Kate made a well timed phone call to her favorite photog, telling them where he would be. Alex had nothing to gain from being photographed with her dog. Kate is being mentioned again so she’s the winner is this case. Let’s all just go back and enjoy the pretty that is Alex and his tight shirt and wait for True Blood to start again.

  • omg

    he’s so HOT!! I’m seriously WET LOL

  • Lilla

    While the pecs are always nice….what’s going on in the shorts is holy sh**!!! He’s so HOT!

  • Mike

    LOL keep it up negative Nancy’s. Thumbs down for saying dude looks good.

  • Mike

    LOL keep it up negative Nancy’s. Thumbs down for saying dude looks good. Hilarious, why so angry?

  • Kim

    @Looking Good:

    Explain to me how Kate is a famewhore, but Alex is not? He dates Kate and they share the same management, right? I think many of you are trying to paint Alex as this native man when many of you have stated in the past that you believe they have a faux romance and that it will end when Straw Dogs get its release. The pap pictures of recent days and some of your comments tell me that Alex is either dumb or be is playing the HW game. Which one is it?

  • Kim

    BTW, I don’t think Alex is a famewhore. But I do believe that his association with a famewhore reflects negatively on him. If you really believe that Alex was setup by Kate, why do you think he keeps falling for her games? After 18 months, I would think a 34 year old man would know better! Right? You guys see through her—why can’t Alex see though her?

  • Spoiled goods

    We can’t blame him for chosing the airhead Boswho, his unstable drunk mother screw him up!

  • jessa

    never smiles. always looks like he has something up his butt.
    LOOSEN UP DUDE.
    you’ll enjoy life alot more when you do.

  • Looking Good

    @Kim Let’s see. Kate has been pictured going into her Dr’s office hence flaming the pregnancy rumors. Going into the post office, the vet’s office and being photographed and videoed going to a friends house multiple times. All totally off the HW grid and not known about unless someone called with the location. Alex gets photogrphed at Joan’s, the gym and the Grove. All HW hotspots and known for paps. Sometimes he’s photographed, sometimes he’s not. Broken Bells was a tip off from Cher so that they could launch tackymint in style that very week. Alex’s sister is photographed with Kate so that Kate could show that she was close with his family. Where did Alex get photographed with his brother and mom, coming out of 7-11 after three different tweets went out about him being there and holding a door for some girls then the paps followed them as they walked down the street. Alex is very rarely photographed going into some place. He’s usually found by tip offs from staff or random tweets. How many of you scan twitter for Alex sitings? Most people on his fan forums do or are aware of them. The paps are too. Kate’s involvement in things has a very distinct feel to them. Broken Bells, The Village idiot , the trailer pics of Alex from L!fe Happens, Mexican Boob gate. Even the staged twitpics from the flight to London fashion week where Kate was sitting on the floor with a Nylon mag next to her only weeks before her ugly cover came out. She stages everything and that is why it all feels so forced and fake. Alex has a hard time faking his interest in her that is why he is so pissed and aloof with her. They are involved in a business arrangement at this point, pure and simple. They have to promote and sell SD. Kate’s been feeling neglected up there in Maine so she needed some attention and sent in her dog to get it. His fans knew it was her dog instantly (we’ve seen her at the vet’s). She didn’t have to do much work to get people talking did she? He’s stuck in a PR game until SD is released and that b*tch loves to play this game.

  • Cheryl

    Who gives a sh*t if he’s a famewhore or his gf is. I just want to look at him and drool. I don’t need to know about his personal life or what he’s like because that would ruin the fantasy. He just needs to stay pretty, maintain his beefcake and act well in his productions and I’ll be happy. Sigh…

  • burnt bacon

    JJ, I want you to try something. It won’t be easy, in fact, it might be downright impossible for you. But I just want you to give it a shot.
    .
    Here goes…
    .
    Ready?
    .
    Wait for it…
    .
    Write an AS post-a WHOLE post-without mentioning Whatsername. I know that if you try it their mutual publicist will probably lock you in the dungeon, starve you and force you to watch repeated viewings of The Warrior’s Way until you go irretrievably insane, but wouldn’t it be worth it just to know you can be free, if only for a brief moment?

  • burnt bacon

    @omg: Thanks for that bit of TMI. And by “thanks,” I mean “ew.”

  • Chose Anonymity

    “He’s walking on the street, how is he a famewhore?”

    Easy for you:
    - He goes to the gym
    - Paparazzi are there taking pics of any A to Z-lister they can
    - They try to sell the pics
    Have you noticed that the posts are about certain people??? you think someone cares about Rachel Bilson?
    - well, publicists pay to have their “stars” in the news.
    Get it???
    It doesn’t matter if Alex is at the gym, walking a dog or chewing gum: He agreed with this lifestyle.
    That is why people call him Famewhore, mmmkay?
    Duh

  • Kim

    @Looking Good:

    Okay. I hope you are right because I don’t like Kate either. I guess we will have to wait until Sept. However, I must ask: what will you say IF their ‘relationship’ continues after SD?

  • Chose Anonymity

    Glad that more people are seeing the true colors of the pretty guy.
    I like the pretty on the outside, but not the personality he’s showing.

  • Looking Good

    @chose anomynity by your logic, every single celeb would be a fame whore. There is a difference between being photographed out and about because your famous and setting up to be photographed to stay relevent. Alex is up and coming and has a huge fan base. People want to see him, his pictures are becoming more valuable. He is in demand. Kate on the other hand is now that girl from Blue Crush who wasn’t even in the sequel. An aging wanna be fashionista who can’t even dress herself without help from a stylist and the “designer” and seller of tacky jewelry. She has to be seen so that she can use those pictures to sell her jewelry and keep getting the designer freebies. Her fashionista status is wanning and she needs someone like Alex to be invited to any real HW parties. Her PR people know that hooking her to someone like Alex keeps her in the public eye. It is to his detriment that they have the same PR people as he’s being used to keep her afloat. Now that her financial backer Ryan Kavanaugh is having his own troubles, she’s going to have to grab all the roles she can. Her time is almost up.

    @Kim – I have no doubt that they are already over. Everything we see now is for show. I can’t wait to have smiling pictures of him with no Kate in site.

  • loveskars

    @Kim: i know that if once SD is done with,.. and they are still together,.. im going to hunt him down, and slap some sense into him.
    then im going to climb onto his back, and demand a piggyback ride while i caress those gorgeous pecs.

    whose in?

  • Chose Anonymity

    @Looking Good: “by your logic, every single celeb would be a fame *****.”
    If with celeb, you mean celebrity (which is a famous person)… yes, famous people tend to like fame.
     
    ASkars chose to be something else than an actor.
     
    There are young, great actors that you only see on screen or stage.
    I like my Alex as an eye-candy.

  • Looking Good

    @Chose Anonymity I think your definition of a fame whore is different than most. Yes, celebrities like fame and they need fame to promote and in many ways excel in the industry which they work so they can also get the good parts. It’s a double edged sword. Most of them are talented, have worked very hard at their craft and have put in their dues. Alex is one of these. Then you have the Kate Bosworth’s and Rachael Bilson’s of the world who don’t try to better themselves in their craft and are really only known for older projects and the men they date or showing off their lastest designer freebies in the tabloids. They make their living out of exploiting themselves and anyone associated with them to stay famous and relevent. Alex and Anna and many others would still get work if they weren’t in the tabloids because they are good actors. Kate would cease to exist in HW without the tabloids and her beloved paps.

  • amtj2008

    Have not been here in a while and I see nothing has changed.

    Actually a famewh*re is a person who is famous for things besides actual talent or who uses every opportunity to make themselves more famous. Alex is not really in any case a famewh*re: if we actually heard him speak about every mundane activity or event in his life, he would be. If he had Twitter, Facebook, or a blog/tumblr; then he would be. Because so many “fans” frequent JJ and other blogs, the paps take pictures of him, often in the same places. Him choosing to be an actor does not mean he necessarily likes fame and he became an actor in the internet age. You hear about private actors who say they could not have made it in this day and age, because nothing is private. When he is not filming something and shilling crappy products and then being seen and pap’d everywhere then he would be a famewh*re. Oh and guilt by association is wrong: that like being friends with a serial killer, racist, pedophile, etc makes you one. People act differently and hide around others. We do not know how “she who must not be named” acts around him or what excuses she makes.

    I like Alex and just because some blogger or pap paints something the way they want and it does not match what he says. I am not going to be fickle and hold it against him. Season 3 of TB was bad, I saw the first 8 mins of season 4 episode 1 and read about the changes and I am going in with an open mind. He looks good, seems like AB made him change the hair to signify a different Eric this season.

  • Mike

    Half of the people on this thread aren’t even regular posters who use the usual names. Where did you all come from? Came just to complain? Lots of thumbs down for saying he looks good, or positive comments in general. Weird.

  • JennyCraig

    He’s into men! That’s why he goes to the gym so much, that package is for bread and butter guys who like guys! He hasn’t been seen with a woman in 4 months..what damn waste

  • Yeah OK

    @ Jenny Craig What are you smoking? He’s working out because he’s naked a lot on TB and he needs to stay in shape. Joe M must be a connoisseur of men in your wacky world since he practically lives at the gym. I guess you’re just used to overweight, out of shape men hence the name Jenny Craig.

  • tami

    I love seeing pictures of Alexander. The more the merrier I say. I just see no reason why K.B. needed to be mentioned. She wasn’t with him, the dog post happened like 3 posts ago, so I figure JJ is just trying to stir the hornets nest and it works every time. lol.

  • Monique

    …too good for Comic-Con? i liked his goofy socks :-(

  • Not a KB post, but…

    I think this article sums up KBos’ acting pretty nicely:

  • Monique

    @Not a KB post, but…: haha, true. But (IF they get recognized at all):
    __
    Kate Bosworth (27?): surfer from a movie
    Alexander Skarsgard (34): vampire from tv-series
    __

    Damn, I liked him, really.

  • Danielik25

    I love him. Alex is a good actor, not only in TB like Eric! BTW one week and Eric is back!

  • avoid

    I don’t care about whatever right now he looks Amazing and Hawt!! Oh my what hot pecs you have Mr. Skarsgard. *put bucket down to get a lot of drool*

  • JennyCraig

    I’ve seen many men in my life, and as a wife of two kids, let me say, Alex has more sugar in him than a piece of angel cake. Men aren’t suppose to go to the gym that much, especially with no woman around!
