Alexander Skarsgard Quit Acting As a Kid
Alexander Skarsgard walks back to his hotel after having lunch at Cafe Habana on Wednesday (August 10) in the Soho neighborhood of New York City.
The 34-year-old Swedish actor revealed during an appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly that he initially quit acting after breaking into the business as a kid.
“I did something and when I was 13, it got some attention and I didn’t like being famous. I didn’t want to be recognized, I was insecure, I didn’t like the attention, I didn’t want people knowing who I was; so to hear people on TV, radio talking about who I was and what I like was kind of confusing,” Alex said.
While studying at Leeds University, Alex decided to give acting another try.
“I don’t know, I just missed it. I was 20 years old, I’d lived in Leeds and I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life, and thinking about reasons for quitting, it was nothing to do with being onstage or in front of the camera,” he said.
FYI: Alexander is wearing an IWC Pilot Chrono watch.
