Alexander Skarsgard: It Gets Better!

Alexander Skarsgard is the latest celeb lending his support to the It Gets Better project.

“I believe it gets better when parents start to lead by example,” the 34-year-old True Blood star said in a new video.

“We have to teach our children that, not only through our words but also through our actions, that every single human being has equal value,” he added. “And to bully someone or for society to discriminate against someone because they have a different sexual orientation, it’s unacceptable.”

“I don’t have any children yet but the day I do, I will make sure that before they walk, before they can even crawl, know how important that is and I hope you do the same,” he said before reiterating, “It gets better.”

    melina Says:

    Everything that Skarsgard says is right, but he is in Hollywood bussiness, where “perfection” and “superiority” is a way of life through “image – making”. Where is equality’s place there?
    When you want to pass a value to other people you have to be a living example of it. The last place I would look for values would be Hollywood.

    It will never get any better, and Hollywood and media made sure of it.

    texas swede Says:

    @Lakas: I am straight but because of my living situation have been accused of being lesbian for years. People have assumed because I share my home with another woman we are sexual partners and not just lifelong friends. I was investigated by an overly zealous religous supervisor and hasseled until I gave up the best job I ever had. At another job was actually ask by other workers NOT to attend family company functions so they would not feel uncomfortable bringing their kids. So do not tell me someone who is not gay cannot understand!

    And yes I can pledge it does get better. I brought my daughter up to accept others for who they are. The only exception is if they try to harm her or anyone else. And my daughter was a friend to many types of kids in school. And she had no problem at 14 asking me to talk one afternoon and telling me she thought she was bi-sexual. Now at 20 she counsels girls at the university she attends about coming out and has actually helped quite a few. So yes by setting and living an example for our children IT DOES GET BETTER.

    That also means setting an example in all things.

    texas swede Says:

    @melina: Before you spread negative vibes about the project please, please read up on it. It is not just about sexual orientation. It is about teaching tolerance of difference and living an example of your teachings. If you dont have kids then teach your nieces and nephews, your godchildren, or your younger siblings. We cant change peoples minds today but with enough of us teaching and practicing It Does Get Better.

    Cafélady Says:

    True words…and an important message.
    He is right, I believe too that it is important HOW a child will be raised up. And that this is the deciding factor for -may be- the whole following life of his/her. Parents are and must be the first model/example for a young human, and yes, long before they can walk or talk. But in that sense, that the parents show respect for the very own personality of their child and the rights of the child as early as possible, and not use them for anything in any sort of way what the parents need for themself. And not only to show how one should behave to other people, that’s important too, of course. But only this isn’t enough.
    A child which has experienced this true love with respect for his/her true personality and for his/her whole person, will never have the wish to bully anyone for anything in the future. This is it what I really believe.
    I believe the best way to teach children to have respect for other people and their rights, is to respect -as parents- the child and his/her personality rights too. And -of course- to be a example for the child with the own actions and words in general.

    Thanks Alex, like I said your words are so what of true!

    Um, the project is called It Gets Better. Jesus, people will rag on him for anything. He’s SUPPOSED to use that tag line, everyone who filmed a PSA for this did. Good grief. Some people will bust on him no matter what.

    On another note. Check out this video of Alex and Keith leaving a party with a couple hotties. Yeah, he’s so totally single now.

    @JennyCraig:
    You do realize that a lot of the TB cast made the same PSA right? It has nothing to do with being gay. Kristen Bauer made one as well.

    @gina:
    The video stated they were leaving a party but who knows. Keith is the black guy, he’s one of Alex’s good friends. He and Bjorne were both with Alex in San Diego.

    Zola24 Says:

    What is it with some of you people – the guy is only trying to make a point and lend his support. After the horrific event on Friday, (which is not the first and unlikely to be the last), it is more important than ever to have, and instil, tolerance of others regardless of sexual orientation, political views, religious beliefs and ethnicity. Yes, Alexander is hot but I really don’t think he was trying to extend his fan base by making this PSA; so take time out and actually listen to what he is saying.

    @Zola24:
    Some people only come on here to post about him being gay. They have nothing else to say, literally. It’s lame and immature. Even if he was, there is nothing wrong with that, and that’s the point of the PSA.

    Again he isn’t the only person who made one, and them asking him to do it has nothing to do with his sexual orientation. Like I said, Kristen Bauer made one, as did some of the other TB stars. It is just to help raise awareness. If some people can’t get that, then they aren’t very smart. Either that, or they are being purposefully obtuse just to get attention, in which case they are total losers.

    Cafélady Says:

    It’s just so lame, always they bring up the same old vid with him in which he is making a little fun with his pal and just partying with a few people. To “prove” their theories about his supposed sexual orientation.
    Like I said this vid is old, and to have fun and making jokes at a party makes no one to be gay yet or something nor is it a proof for it.
    But should it be like that, if he actually would have a different sexual orientation, I wouldn’t have any problem with it. It doesn’t matter for me what orientation he finally has – straight, bi or gay, I will ever be a fan of him and his work in any case.

    But it’s curious how many people apparently are so much interested on it what he possibly are doing or not doing in his bed…

    Cafélady Says:

    @://: I can’t follow you exactly, with what exactly do you have a problem here in this vid??
    All I can see is an obviously happy alex, which possibly (hopefully) had a funny evening with a few other people/friends! And to go to a party with other people – together as a group, is nothing unusual. Yes, even then if are any (possible single) woman in this group too.
    And in which sort of way makes this a person to be a b*tch now?!?
    And anyhow, why shouldn’t he enjoy his life and to have an apparently funny evening with his friends and other people?

    I would say, not this what one can see in this vid is the problem – but obviously some people have a problem with that what they are apparently automatically suppose, if they can see alex in company with other woman.

  36. 36
    Camille Says:

    Just a note, the girl in the video seems more animated with Keith than with Alex. If you watch, she actually reaches out to Keith more than once and touches his back. She doesn’t do that to Alex though. Maybe they knew this person, or maybe they didn’t. Either way I don’t see it as a big deal to have some fun if you’re single. Someone on another thread suggested they were prostitutes. Just because someone wears a short dress doesn’t make them a h0oker. At least those girls have actual bodies, unlike the bones he was saddled with for almost a year and a half.

    Love it, and hope he does more of these. If you’ve ever been ostracized for being black, gay, female, skinny, fat, a different religion or anything beyond the status-quo, you’d know what he was talking about. It’s not just the parents, it’s also about time Hollywood realized that the Movies are also responsible for setting examples for values.

    Canuck Says:

    Good for him! He’s made the comment in the past that he dislikes intolerance. No one chooses their skin tone, sexual orientation or which country they are born in. Discrimination is the sign of fear, of needing to feel “better” than someone else because usually you know deep down inside that you are really “less”.

  53. 53
    @34 Says:

    LOL at the guy in the black shirt at 41-44 secs. His face is priceless!

    Kudos to Alex for this PSA. I agree completely. I’m a single parent who has a 12 yr old daughter who has stood up to several boys to defend a smaller boy who was being bullied. She is very active in her school’s anti-bullying program. Yes, kids today could get a distorted image of what’s beautiful from Hollywood and the media. But as good parents our influence should be stronger than anything else they encounter.

    mforman Says:

    The only comments worth reading here are from his true fans; the rest of you just do not want to give him a break.

    He is talented, smart , gorgeous and now we see this video which shows another side of his generosity.

    Maybe you guys should listen to what he is saying and grow up.

    Also, he is a single guy out at a party with his friends, why shouldn’t he meet and pick up some girls, that is what single guys do.

    Why do you come onto AS’s posts, just to make nasty, ridiculous comments? How about you leave his real true fans the room to make posts that actually reflect the man and actor.

    *sigh*…and from where do you know this exactly, that at this party were 90% porn stars?!? Do you want to suggest, that you were a guest at this party too and have seen all these people for yourself?? Or is this just an personal suspicion of you (what I suppose)?

    I’m sorry, I couldn’t recognize these Lady’s in his (and his friends) company (in this vid) will say; I don’t know them (and btw how and why should I?). And honestly spoken, I’m not much interested which profession these girls could have or whatever else.

    I guess, not the people at this party he probably left or the people in his company are the problem for you, no – I think you have a problem with your own personal assumptions and that what you are interprete into this situation respectively.
    All I can see in this vid is; he is leaving (may be a party) and in company with his friends/other people. That’s all.
    Anyhow, I truly hope he had a nice evening and a lot of fun.

    If you can’t stand him, well.. then this is your opinion. But I’m sorry, the reasons you give for it (or better to say the reasons you hint) to dislike him aren’t very comprehensible for me, because they are apparently based only on personal suspicions/interpretations of obviously harmless situations (in one can see him in pics/vids and so on) and -in following of this- ideas about his person.

    @texas swede:

    Celebrities themselves try so hard – you can’t imagine how much- to be likeable. They follow the pattern. They should look thin, beautiful, with white teeth- so white that shine in the dark- they try to hide all their flaws, they use their high horses a lot.
    And then they say we should accept everyone as they are and be ourselves. Yeah right. They give us the good example of honesty and tolerance while their behaviour states quite the opposite.
    I ‘ve had enough with their hypocricy.

    texas swede Says:

    @Mariani: I understand your point about the hyprochrosy of Hollywood. But where Alex is concerned I have to disagree. The only times you see him putting forth the Hollywood look is when he is working. On his own time he puts no effort into his appearance at all. LOL. I mean just look at the last day of SDCC, he had a hole in his tee. He wears the beanie instead of messing with his hair.

    My point is for this particular PSA they picked a guy who is not the typical Hollywood Hotshot.

  62. 62
    Camille Says:

    @chelle:
    LOL! You got that right.

    @Canuck:
    Everything I’ve heard/read about him from co-workers and people who’ve met him suggest he’s a very nice person. Has he made some poor choices? Sure, but who hasn’t? I don’t think someone should be crucified for that, it’s only human to make mistakes. The important thing is learning from them.

    http://www.usmagazine.com/celebritynews/news/alexander-skarsgard-and-kate-bosworth-split-2011277

    My opinion on Alex’s look…. He’s a guy and he dresses like a guy. Plain and simple. I don’t think he puts much if any thought into what he wears on a day to day basis. Just like most of the guys I know.
    He obviously doesn’t like to shave, (which I get, I’m SO glad I don’t have to do that everyday). The beany hat I personally don’t like. Unfortunately it is very Hollywood. I live here and I see them all the time. I don’t like it because I don’t think it looks good on him – IMO. I’m also not going to hold it against him for getting into one trend. Considering the extremes many people in this city go to following trends (the Hollywood look being discussed). He isn’t anything like those tools (KB).

  67. 67
    gina Says:

    @Free at last?: Ha Ha. Looks like we saw the same thing at the same time.

    Most interesting line is “they split some time ago”.

  68. 68
    Camille Says:

    We all knew they split a long time ago. It was probably even before Coachella. I have to laugh at the “exclusive” report. So KB fed them the line probably because she heard about Alex in CC and Sweden. I’m sure it wasn’t mutual, from the sounds of it he was plenty tired of her crap a long time ago according to US weekly’s other report in March. Alex hasn’t looked happy in months and month, so this was a long time coming. He may have had to stay with her until the original release date of the movie, which was supposed to be Feb so it’s interesting the fighting reports started to come in March.

    @ladybug:
    No kidding. Poor OB, he apparently according to that article must have been sh*tting his pants about those pics.

    Lovely video and obviously came straight from the heart. Alex is very generous about doing charity or PSA stuff, but have to say he looks tired in this one. I don’t even care anymore what the trolls say on here — he’s a really good guy no matter what they say. Of course the Kate stans are going to be taking any shots at him they can for a while, who cares.

    @Free at last?:
    Nope, there are going to be lots of people who feel the same way.

    It should be interesting for SD promotion though. Thankfully he’ll be filming for some of it, so maybe he won’t have to travel with her to do premiers and whatnot. I think that might be a tricky thing because you know she’ll try everything to dig her clinging claws back into him. Though this is going to help promote the movie as well. Interesting timing for them to wai tthis long to release a statement.

    @Mariani: Having read some of his interviews, at least where he mentions US politics, he seems pretty lefty (or blue) to me.

    @ladybug: He probably didn’t know what hit him, poor guy.

    @ladybug: she had to release something due to his “behavior” last weekend…..and didnt Ted C just say a couple of days ago that all was well in the whatever.

    Canuck Says:

    @chelle: I would think that his people put it out to head off the “I’m so devasted, my BF is a cheater” strategy.

    Bottom line, folks, we finally have confirmation it’s over. No more speculation! So let’s sit back and enjoy a good glass of wine. Here’s to you Alex :-) Wishing them both a happy life without each other.

    ladybug Says:

    @chelle: Which makes me wonder if some of that behavior was calculated to force some sort of statement (or at least to stop her stalking).
    I think TedC did, and I suspect that Ted knew they’d been done for months, but likes to make stuff up.
    @Canuck, they have the same PR person, so this might get a little awkward for her.

    Canuck Says:

    @chelle: We’re so smart ;)))

    Canuck Says:

    @ladybug: I’m pretty sure that if their PR person was forced to choose between the protecting the image of the one of two, she’d choose the rising star who is going to make her wayyyyy more $$ than the person whose career is languishing in low budget hell.

    @Canuck: but she is such a fashionista!!

    @chelle: Hehe, even her stylist doesn’t talk about her anymore…

  91. 91
    ladybug Says:

    @Canuck: She may have a much longer business relationship with KB, but I suspect you’re correct. She’ll of course try and make sure that ‘sources close to the couple’ don’t say anything derogatory about the other.
    @chelle, and now she has much more time to be a fashionista!

    @ladybug: Promo for SD should be interesting. 10 bucks says he keeps someone else between them at all times.

  93. 93
    ladybug Says:

    @Canuck: I expect to see Bjorne, Surfer Dude, Gustaf, Bill, Keith and some large random strangers from the street surrounding him at all times during the premiere.

  94. 94
    Mia Says:

    You know, them being separated and it being official now will create even more buzz for SD than them being a couple. Much juicier situation. The press will eat that up. Indeed very interesting timing for the break-up release.

  95. 95
    Mia Says:

    @ladybug: LOL! Let’s hope they’ll be there for him.

    OMG! JJ is so behind everyone has released this sudden but happwned a while ago breakup…whats the deal? Trying to find a picture of them standing close enough for the split thing? Good luck with that!

  102. 102
    Mia Says:

    @chelle: You crack me up!!! :-) I guess JJ will have to do some MAJOR digging…but will it still be considered “news” by then?

  103. 103
    chelle Says:

    Ted C just posted something except he stated that AS left coachella early…dumbass….he also said he saw it coming a mile away….really dumbass….just saying

  104. 104
    ladybug Says:

    @chelle: When she was grabbing his belt loop the first night of Coachella, that might work. I joked than she was trying to make sure he didn’t get away. Perhaps I was closer to the mark than I thought.

  105. 105
    Camille Says:

    I agree with you guys. Her stalking was probably happening for months. Lainey is right about her being nuts I think. You’re right about it raising SD promotion too. Hopefully he is filming for a lot of it so she can’t inflict her special brand of crazy on him. Guess we know why he left town every chance he got now.

    LOL Ted is an idiot. He has no more inside info than the rest of us I think. Can someone post the link though, I’m at work and just about to go into a meeting so I don’t have time to look for it. Thanks!

  106. 106
    Chloe Says:

    Just a thought but maybe a statement was only released just now because Alex is going to start doing some talk shows and doesn’t want anyone to ask about her. If people know it’s over they might leave it alone. He’s supposed to do Regis and Kelly next week so if the word is out they probably won’t ask anything.

    @ladybug: yuku probably crying in their cornflakes now…they lost their golden goddess….what will they do now??

    ladybug Says:

    @chelle: I was going to ask if anyone had gone over to the Yuku site to see how they’re dealing with it.

  109. 109
    Camille Says:

    LOL I just went to have a peek there guys. Some of them think it’s done and some of them are still treating it as a gossip piece that they don’t necessarily believe. They also posting “discussions” they supposedly overheard at work, etc and posting the poor KB comments. There are a couple that aren’t so nice about her but most of them are still buttkissing.

  110. 110
    ladybug Says:

    @Camille: Dear lord, are they still in denial? Are they this obtuse in their own lives?

  111. 111
    Camille Says:

    @ladybug:
    Most likely. Someone said because the US piece is an “exclusive” that must mean a gossip tip and not an official report. Uh huh!

  112. 112
    ladybug Says:

    @Camille: Do they not realizes that in this case ‘a source’ is probably their mutual publicist, trying to put the best spin on things?

  113. 113
    Camille Says:

    @ladybug:
    They only believe “sources” when it’s something good. Agreed though it’s most likely Robin Baum.

  114. 114
    Camille Says:

    Actually that leads me to thinking…I wonder if he’ll change his management or PR now.

  115. 115
    chelle Says:

    @ladybug: its not as if every gossip site including E! has run this rumor story…..our magic ball works for us does theirs have a short in it? I thought we were the psych fat fanfurls.

    Soula Says:

    Hey guys, I read that he and KB are over. Hey, at last!
    But I am a cautious person and ” I hold a small basket when I hear that there are a lot of cherries around…”
    My point is this:
    Last time I read something about KB and AS was June. Jared posted Alex taking KB’s dog to a walk. People then posted photos that proved that the dog was Kate’s.
    True Blood started on June 26th. Since then there were no Alex+Kate anywhere. Is this a coincidence?
    I mean, most of AS ‘s fans hated his relationship with that… whatever.
    What if they tried to keep it very hush hush until True Blood season 4 is over? Then they could come out openly as Straw Dogs premiere is on 16 September. Fans will have accepted the whole Alex-Bosworth thing until True Blood season 5 arrives.
    I have this bad feeling about it. Please prove me wrong.

  119. 119
    ladybug Says:

    @Camille: I’ve been wondering that for sometime, if he’s smart he will dump Robin Baum (PR), I think it be a little weird to have your PR person also be the PR person for your stalker ex-gf. Awkward.
    @Soula, how are we supposed to prove your bad feeling wrong?
    I think he finally got tired of the drama and ended it. She’s not taking it well.

  120. 120
    Soula Says:

    @ladybug:

    Not my bad feeling , the facts, the weird coincindences.
    Anyway, let’s wait and see.

  121. 121
    ladybug Says:

    @Soula: What ‘weird coincidences’? So, you’re saying they’re really together but have suddenly had to keep it very, very, very quiet for whatever reason?

  122. 122
    Soula Says:

    @ladybug:

    Yes, a good reason could be “let’s stay hidden until true blood finishes, because AS fans hate Kate”. (They hate her for many good reasons, but this is another matter).
    Or maybe I ‘m too cautious and Skarsgard really turned on his self preserve instinct and threw that leech away.

  123. 123
    ladybug Says:

    @Soula: So they’re keeping it so under wraps that they’ve not been spotted together in over 3 months, she’s stalking him and he’s flirting up a storm?

  124. 124
    Soula Says:

    @ladybug:

    I got your message. It’s highly unlikely these two are together then.
    He, he, he, the party begins….

  125. 125
    Camille Says:

    @ladybug:
    I hope so. It hasn’t been good to have the same PR team with the stupid antics. Also I’ve heard his manger guy is kind of a douche too. Maybe a change in his team would do him well.

    Say What? Says:

    ‘Now that Us Weekly’s reporting it, does that mean Kate’s finally ready to let go? Well, I’ve also heard from multiple and varied contacts that she keeps stalking his hangouts, just, like, dropping by the gym/cafe/whatever to see if he’s around, front like it would be an unplanned encounter, make him realise he misses her and wants her back. Apparently this has worked once. And he didn’t change his mind.’

    Posted on Purse Forum by Say Wat Pepo. Kate must have learned all about stalking him from Say Wat Pepo, they should be besties.
