Alexander Skarsgard: 'Completely Different Side of Eric'

Alexander Skarsgard: 'Completely Different Side of Eric'

Alexander Skarsgard drops by the gym on Saturday (July 2) in West Hollywood.

The 34-year-old True Blood actor wore sunglasses over what looked like a bruise under his eye. Hope everything’s okay!

Alexander recently chatted with the L.A. Times about the evolution of his character, Eric, and what will change for him in the current season of True Blood.

“It’s a completely different side of Eric,” Alex said. “He doesn’t know who he is so all that baggage is gone — 1,000 years of resentment and bitterness, the whole loathing humanity kind of stuff is gone. But there has to be an element of danger there still. I didn’t want him to become too much of a little puppy…. I don’t think it would be fun to watch him for very long if he was completely emasculated.”

    I wonder if he got into a fist fight or if he fell and hit his head on something when he was drunk? Either way…it’s kinda hot…

    Naw, Kate punched him in the eye for yelling at her “friends” (the paps) the other day.

    I wonder why JJ didn’t post the other pics of him with the ‘mystery girl’ ;D

    Hope he gets home and puts a nice cold beer on that bruise!

    @Panties go *poof*: I’m thinking the ‘mystery girl’ isn’t with him, just near him. And probably wondering why the heck there’s a person taking pictures of her.
    And I think if the punching happened during the Friday pap incident, wouldn’t have the paps in the car behind the Prius caught that?

    Damn, he is sexy even when he is annoyed and bruised up. He needs a pair of those aviator sunglasses that look SO good on him, it would cover up his poor eye better!

    sometimes i stub my toe, but ma says give the parrot a cracker anyways and i guess that is what alex would do. so he’s my hero. he’s strong!

    Panties go *poof* Says:


    You are right i think. When i first looked at the pics i thought the same! I don’t think the bruise was anything to do with the pap encounter or those pics would be all over the normal sites…….hmm the plot thickens…or maybe he is just a bit clumsy sometimes, he is human after all! ;D

    Alex looks good here, even with a bruise. I’m thinking you’re right though, and that’s just some random woman who just happened to be coming out of the gym at the same time. Either that, or she’s some fitness person or something maybe working with him.

    Debbie Says:

    Is TB still being filmed? Might he not have ducked in time?
    The fourth book’s got a whole lot of fighting going on towards the endbut then the first two episodes only have the Jason storyline in common with Dead to the World.

    Kate Bosworth looks hot in that picture! Alex and Kate make a great couple!

    @Debbie: That was something I was also wondering, if he’s still filming and got whacked by a camera or mike or an errant ‘fake’ punch.

    Kristen, this incident from Friday, he had a few words with a photog:

    I think he’ll be happy to have this weekend behind him, whatever happened.

    sadly I agree — just some random girl. But I was excited for a moment there. Bruise looks nasty but probably doesn’t hurt all that much (black eyes always look worse than they feel) and you can’t tell with the sunglasses if his eye is swollen (that does hurt if so). Wouldn’t be TB filming being a weekend would it? I know nothing about filming schedules but don’t they get weekends off like in most jobs?

    Okay we have a few different things that could have happened:

    1) they were doing reshoots or added a new shot and he got hit by accident.

    2) he accidently got hit while working out

    We don’t know what happened, but we all feel bad that he got hurt.

    Truly though, no one can deny that he looks amazing even with his injury.

    Camille Says:

    Alex looks good, but I do wonder where he got the bruise from. Hopefully it was from work. It he got into a fight with a pap, I’m sure it would be all over the gossip news, and places like TMZ, etc.

    TB often films on the weekends, on Friday and Saturday at least. Not too sure about Sunday.
