    I was laughing at those too. I’m on vacation also, and it’s been nice to have lots of hotness to look at daily. Seriously, this stuff with the girl is killing me.

    @Gina the 1st:
    It’s totally adorable isn’t it? How can someone say he won’t make a good dad someday. Clearly he enjoys spending time with her and she looks like she’s in heaven using him as a personal jungle gym.

  • FandomJealoysyStrikes


    He looks AHMAHZINGGG in that pic too! Who cares if he has overbite. It’s cute and adorable and btw, Stephen Moyer and Joe Manganiello are not flawless either. Yeah I know there’s lots of negative Moyer/Manganiello action on Alex threads everywhere ;D

  • Hello Nelly

    I agree having much younger siblings would probably give him a comfort level around children that other single men wouldn’t necessarily have. Also, he was also a child actor. He would probably be more likely to go out of his way to make this fun for a child co-star than others on set would. It’s cute.

  • LuLu

    omg he is so cute **,

  • tim

    he shaves his armpits?!

  • Canuck

    @Camille: They’re killing me too. Plus I harbour somewhat less than pure thoughts about using him as my personal jungle gym too. ;))). Lol
    @tim: No, look at the pix a little closer.@Hello Nelly: I was thinking too that he might be inclined to make the set time more pleasant for the kids, especially if someone had done the same for him as a child.

  • Jenn

    Love the arm porn but I gotta admit it’s CREEPY how hard he stares at the little girl. WTF is that about???

  • Canuck

    @Jenn: You never had staring contests as a kid?

  • Nolly

    Alexander has 7 younger siblings!! so, stop saying he would be a “great father”…
    Keep your embarrasing dreams to yourselves.

  • Canuck

    @Nolly: Sorry, making the observation that someone who obviously likes kids and is good with them will make a good Dad is hardly an “embarrassing dream”. Why would that be an embarrassment? It’s not as if we are sittng here saying he’s going to be the father of anyone’s children but the woman he eventually chooses to settle down with. Maybe you should keep your own fantasies in check before projecting the on the rest of us.

  • gonebad

    actually he has 6 younger siblings.
    can you believe he has a 2 year old brother?

  • Nolly

    Oh, you are right: 6 younger siblings.

    Probably is a bit strange to have a little brother at his age, but fun.
    - – - – -
    Canuck… craaaazy.

  • blah

    @Nolly: What’s crazier than having a 2 year old brother is that his stepmother is the same age as him! I don’t think he gets to see Ossian all that much though, and I doubt he was around Valter quite as much when he was a baby, since Alex had already moved out by t he time Valter was born, in the military, then Leeds, then NYC before back to Sweden around 22, starting his career, but with the other siblings, he definitely would have had a hand, if only as a free babysitter so his parents could have some time to themselves.
    In any case… these pictures = ovaries exploding. So adorable with the ‘teacup humans.’ Plus, Alex has said how he’s looking forward to being a father someday, so it’s safe to assume he enjoys children.

  • youyou

    the bessssssssssssssssssssst

  • mforman

    Some of you people scare me. As a chid actor he knows how boring it must get around the movie sets with nothing to do, so he is making sure to let her have a fun experience I cannot believe what some of you guys are thinking.
    AS has an amazing reputation in both HW and Sweden and he has earned that with hard work, treating everyone with respect and just being an all around a good guy.
    So let us just enjoy all of these amazing photographs that we are lucky enough to be gettting daily and then we will get to enjoy his new films.
    I have said this before, I have been a fan of his since forever and I am so excitedd that he is finally getting the recognition he deserves.

  • What Maisie Knew Aug 2011
  • Camille

    Agreed. It’s a pretty normal observation to make. You don’t see anyone else playing with that little girl but him. Especially in the video, it’s obvious that everyone else is doing their own thing but Alex is spending time with her and he’s doing it by choice.

  • Canuck

    @Camille: Lovely man :)))

  • seeshay

    oh yeah, these photos and videos of him with the little girl are beyond adorable. And yeah, I agree with you guys above that he looks to have the makings of a terrific father. That little girl so obviously has a huge crush on him already. Look at her expression when he’s picked her up to cross the street. Awww….

  • Camille

    In pretty much every way possible!

    That little girl totally has a crush on him, you can tell. She’s excited to be around him.

  • Camille

    I have to laugh at the paps in the video contemplating how tall he is, and then saying he can’t be making much in this movie. How would they know that? LOL

  • Camille
  • Camille
  • CafĂ©lady

    @Camille: I guess, the tea-cup humans “fan-club” becomes bigger and bigger…lol…
    Obviously has the other little girl in the second pic a crush on him too, not only onata…lol …he is so sweet with the kids…I would claim he is actually an “kids-type”, someone who can really easy and natural interact with kids.

    I guess, would it be possible then I would like him now more, than I do it already – just for this… really cute.

    Thanks for posting these pics.

  • intresting

    is it just me? but in that video@117 posted, where alex and that joanne ? chick are eating, she is talking to him/looking at him and he is just intrested in eating his food?……….

  • Jessie

    Some links to watch TB live if you don’t get HBO.

  • Dani


    Are these safe though? thanks

  • Camille

    I’ve used them and they seem to be ok.

  • Camille

    LOL looks like little missy wants to feel some muscles. Cute

  • Jessie

    Not sure, I got them off yuku. I would think they’d be ok though because I think some of them use that to watch because they’re from overseas.

  • Jen

    THANKS!!!! You’re my hero!! LOL

  • Jessie

    No problem. Those links usually will work every Sunday.

  • Camille

    Eh….not the best episode, or is it just me? The shower scene was a let down, as I assumed it would be. AB is officially an idiot IMO. He robbed everyone of what they wanted, and he did it on purpose. The snowy bed scene didn’t make up for anything if you ask me, it was kind of cheesy actually. The previous episode was way better.

  • Dani


    Thank you, was good for me too.
    That was quite the ep holy crap!

  • Camille
  • Jessie

    Alex shooting another movie, right after Maisie?

    Hey True Blood fans – a little bird told me Alexander Skarsgard (Eric) is headed to Nashville to film a movie very soon

  • Jen

    Yeah, the shower scene didn’t go anything like the way I thought, and the snowy bed thing was kinda meh – I’d expect that of Twilight and not TB to be honest. Last week was sooooo much hotter, so this was a let down. The only redeeming thing out of the shower scene was the nice long shot of that gorgeous backside. For that I’m thankful, but Allan Ball still owes me that shower scene!!.

  • amazing

    wow – amazing, just amazing like, he can walk and talk and just amazing and incredible and awesome, and everything, he can be a dad and everything like, and it’s just amazing and awesome and wow, look at that, he’s got an ipad and he can walk and talk and have lunch. Wow, he’s going to have lunch again, amazing and awesome and he’s so sexy, come on JJ put up another post. he’s just too incredible and amazing and wow, another picture of him walking HOW DOES HE DO IT?!!!!!! and another picture of him having lunch, more more more JJ it’s all just too awesome and he’s so incredible and amazing ……. boring boring boring boring


  • ladybug

    @Jessie: Could be possible, but I’ll wait until it gets confirmed by someone associated with Alex and/or the movie.

  • Canuck

    Ok, if that was supposed to be the shower scene, I’m going to quote Pam. “This is sooooo f’ing LAME”! I guess the snow thing was supposed to signify the melding of the two, daylight with snow blah blah, but as others have said here, it was a ridiculously sappy Twilight moment, veering into jumping the shark territory.

  • ladybug

    @Canuck: I’m more than ready to have the old Eric back.
    I don’t know what AB was thinking (or not thinking) with the shower scene. I don’t think it was jump the shark for the series, but perhaps for AE.

  • Jessie

    The snow scene was terrible. It could have been good, but the frigging dialogue was so bad that it made it totally cheesy. All is possible? What the hell? It was painful to listen to those terrible lines. I think the snowy bed was supposed to be reminiscent of Mr. January, but it was poorly done. Plus afterward when Eric is whining how he just wants to be with Sookie and nobody else was bad. Since when does Eric whine? Ugh, you just know AB will have Bill save the day.

  • Canuck

    @Jessie: I’ll stake AB myself if he pulls that crap… Lol. And totally agree on the cheesy dialogue, it was bad, bad, bad!

  • Camille

    Last week was hotter. Allan Ball wrote this episode I think. For some reason I think he seems bent on making Eric as lame as he can and making Bill seem awesome. I just hate that.

    It was terrible dialogue. It was pretty groan worthy actually. Instead of having a heart to heart about their feelings they pulled that crap. It was seriously bad, and probably embarassing to say for the actors.

    I get the same feeling, seeing the preview makes it look that way and Sookie is supposed to have that three way dream according to spoilers, so it would make sense if that happened. Stupid! Then the Inside the Episode, AB said that Eric isn’t going to be there for Sookie and he’s now a slave to the witch and sweet Eric is going to be gone. Ugh, none of this happened. Making Eric someone’s slave is stupid.

  • Camille

    Apparently, since he pretty much confirmed that sweet, innocent AE was gone now that he’s Antonia’s slave. Ugh, what a waste of a scene. AB is a terrible writer.

  • Camille

    Ugh, good grief JJ. Well I guess I can’t include the link so if anyone wants to see new pics of Alex on set today then go to

  • Canuck

    @Camille: Well, that pretty much ends me watching for the rest of the season then.

  • Camille
  • Camille

    It’s been a let down, as per usual. AB is just bent on making Eric not as good as he could be. I think he’s actually p*ssed off at how much attention Alex is getting from the show. When they booed Bill and Sookie getting back together at CC you could tell AB was annoyed with that.

    Ok, I just posted a crap load of pics from meatballs tumbler, and at first they were there and now they’ve been removed. Ugh!
