Alexander Skarsgard: It Gets Better!

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.”

    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.

    @JennyCraig: maybe you should go to the website and see all the non celebrity people who sare his views. I am not gay at all but I totally support this message. And even if he was who the crap cares except narrow minded idiots who enjoy spreading more hate in the world. Go bully somewhere else.

    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…

    @://: 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.

    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.

    It’s sad that people twist what is supposed to be a good message and spew crap. There hasn’t been any gay rumors about him in Sweden. Nice try though.

    I’m 98% sure he had a nosejob. He looks better.

    @hannah2:
    So basically it was just a group of people probably heading to another party or somewhere. Like I said, I don’t see it as a big deal. If you’re young, and single then why not have fun as long as you’re safe.

    Dear God. I hope Alex doesn’t read the celeb blogs. Some of the comments are downright nasty.

    @Camille: Thanks, yeah I noticed that, which is why I didn’t respond to the ‘lovely’ Jenny who obviously has no understanding of compassion, or tolerance. I appreciate your comments although I am sure someone will find a way to twist them before too long.

    @chelle: Thanks, but I do feel you may be wasting your time with someone with such entrenched pathetic views as Jenny whatevahernamewoz but hey remember Pandora’s Box – there’s always hope.

    How can you teach someone to eat vegetables if you yourself don’t eat them? It’s so simple and obvious. Can’t you get it?

    This was funny. Well, Alexander may be a lot of things, but he is not gay.
    I can tell.

    Dear Ted:
    We both share a love for the delicious Alexander Skarsgård. But you, my dear, know his Blind Vice, while I am still in the dark. It is killing me. Please, please, please, throw me a bone (or anything). I need some info.
    —TAL

    Dear SkarsVice:
    It’s not boring, that’s for sure, but it’s not really a Vice, either. Even though it’s technically against the law.

    @Mariani: Just what is it you think I dont get? I have been the victim of anti gay bullies and yet I am not gay. So I do GET the purpose of the organizations message to young people to reach out for help. Being bullied for any type of difference to the point of suicide is not right and I applaud the celebrities passing on different types of messages and tht It Does Get Better.

    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.
