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.”

@Cafélady:
this girls leaving maxim party…at this party there are some actors and 90% of porn stars (=b!tch)…honestly i prefer see him with bonesworth (which i hate) than sl*ts.
I hope he uses condom :/

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”.

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.

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.

@mforman:
This is a gossip site, not a fan page…this is not a place for fan only, anyone who is on JJ is free too express opinion about celebrity…”maybe you should listen what he’s saying and grow up” because you don’t accept a different opinion about AS….you pretend only positive thought

@://: So you think there is something negative about accepting people for who they are?

@Canuck:
people should accepting people for who they are, there is nothing wrong to be gay or black…i don’t like discrimination!!!
i found mforman too bossy ..she suggest people who don’t have a positive impression about skarsgard to leave this place..why? if i think that he is not a good guy i’m free to write here that i don’t like him!

@://: Why do you think he’s not a good guy?

@://: *this girls leaving maxim party…at this party there are some actors and 90% of porn stars (=b!tch)…honestly i prefer see him with bonesworth (which i hate) than sl*ts.

*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.

@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.

@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.

Hmm interesting article by Lainey about the OB/KB hug pics, and something she’s apparently going to write about Alex and KB tomorrow. Looks like in this article though she’s suggesting something bad and KB is trying to get attention. Big surprise.

@Camille: Kate set someone up for pap shots? I’m shocked!

This might be what Lainey is going to write about. This question is, will JJ post one of his “split” posts.

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).

@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”.

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.

Actually, I can’t wait to see Lainey’s take on it. She may be a crusty b*tch but she usually has pretty solid, and decent info.

Hahaha, yes! Finally someone confirms what all of us already knew. BTW, Lainey did write something about it. Maybe there is more tomorrow or maybe she just decided to write about it today after it already broke. Hopefully she can dig up more dirt. Doesn’t look good for KB. This b*tch is crazy!

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.

First trailer for Battleship. Alex isn’t in it much, but I guess his role isn’t super big since it’s more Taylor Kitch’s movie.

Free at last? @ 07/27/2011 at 12:05 pm

Is it wrong that I can’t help but feel a little happy (might even be smug but I’m not willing to cop to that.. just yet lol) that they are finally done?

I’m mostly happy that he seems to have found his stride again and actually smiles these days.

@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.

@Camille: We were right about why he changed his hangouts recently.
