Alexander Skarsgard: Wednesday Workout!

Alexander Skarsgard: Wednesday Workout!

Alexander Skarsgard wears a black Nike top as he heads to the gym for a workout on Wednesday (August 24) in New York City.

The 34-year-old Swedish actor has made trips to the gym three days in a row this week to keep his body in shape.

Alex is currently in NYC while filming his next project, What Maisie Knew, which will be released in theaters next year.

Earlier in the week, it was announced that Alex is in negotiations to star opposite Brit Marling in The East, a thriller about a female agent infiltrating an eco-terrorism group.

FYI: Alex is wearing Persol 2999-S Sunglasses.

    He must pay the papps a fortune to follow him

  • PurpleSamantha

    Much as I love him, I’m disappointed that he continues to wear Nike after their association with Michael Vick.

  • Mia

    Mmmmmmmm :-) So sexy in black.

  • chelle

    @Mia: very much so ….he is nothing if not consistent routine wise. No wonder paps find him so easy …lol

  • Mia

    @PurpleSamantha: I am sure he’s had these clothes since before Nike started endorsing Michael Vick. Wouldn’t make sense to just toss them. He may not even be aware of the controversy surrounding Michael Vick. I, for one, am done with Nike. Makes me sick that they would endorse a subhuman like Michael Vick. He’s a disgrace to our kind.

  • Come On!

    i love seeing pictures of him but everyday it looks like u post the same pictures try snapping him somewhere else or give him a rest i can live a day without seeing him that’s what Google pictures are for, for those who have to look at him everyday or watch true blood

  • MrJeffery

    Damn, he looks hot. Love the way those shorts fit.

  • chelle

    @Mia: ITA on the Michael Vick thing. He’s not worth the air he breathes and he never should have been forgiven by NFL but I wear Nike too so hopefully that doesn’t make me a bad person. I’m all about animal rights. I even had a great idea regarding the oil spill that still effects the dolphins. I think for every dolphin and it’s baby that has died or dies due to oil mess a BP exec should be shot in the head.

  • Sydney

    These are all staged setup pics by his publicist – wake up girls.

  • Wow

    That bulge….

  • Lilla

    I love those shorts. He looks so good!

  • just me

    @Sydney: I don’t care. I still like to see him.And he has a movie deal and he’s working. Not like hayden christensen.That’s what he should have done with hisself instead of letting rachel bilson talk him out of coming back to hang with her.Hope he wake-up like Alex did.

  • valentina

    he has chicken legs.

  • mariano

    he has chicken legs

  • ladybug

    @Mia: Doesn’t Nike supply Hammarby with their unis? Perhaps that is why he wears them. Or he just likes Nike. I think with boycotting companies, occasionally exceptions are made for whatever reason.

  • Canuck

    @chelle: How about we shoot gas guzzling SUV drivers, and whichever Judge vacated the Amoco Cadiz monetary penalties into meaningless spare change first?

  • Canuck

    @mariano: I’d like a drumstick please… ;)

  • chelle

    @Canuck: first the people who not guiltied Casey Anthony then take care of the rest …….I think I’d prefer a thigh …..yummy yummy!

  • Canuck

    @chelle: Wait and see, BP will end up paying pennies on the dollar compared to the original reserves they put aside for this. Plus, odd how nothing has been said about Anadarko who are partners with BP on this particular field.

  • Jame

    omg, again? muscle head!

  • new kb

    he is the new kate bosworth

  • Rina

    @tj: Are you nuts? He hates this constant invasion of privacy. The paps stalk him ’cause he’s hot property right now.

  • Canuck

    @new kb: So desperate to get her name into ASkars posts, aren’t you? No one cares about the wowan.

  • Canuck

    @new kb: Who?

  • Dani
  • Canuck

    Here in the EU, it’s the 25th so Happy Bday Mr. Skarsgard, may it be filled ith friends and happiness!

  • Jessie

    An audio interview Alex did today answering a bunch of questions. I can’t really make out what the lady is asking him, only what Alex is saying but maybe my laptop has crappy sound.

    Apparently he has yet another project in the works, along with the East.

  • Jessie

    Why would they switch between English and Swedish if they were all Swedish, that doesn’t make a whole bunch of sense.

  • PurpleSamantha

    @Mia: I’m the same way. I had just purchased some flip-flops from them when they made the announcement about Vick. I’d spent the money, might as well wear them.

  • Jessie

    The movie is shooting in NYC apparently, but not sure when. Maybe right after Maisie and before The East.

  • ladybug

    @Jessie: That does seem a bit strange, why not just speak Swedish instead of switching?
    As for his apparently new acting gig, where’s he going to find the time to fit this one in? Admittedly, it’s a small part, but still.

  • 35 d*uchebag

    now he’s a 35 d*uchebag! congratulations alex! and happy birthday!

  • Jessie

    I think that some of it might be made up because that doesn’t make sense that they’d switch. The kissing thing is probably made up.

    Maybe his part will only take 2-3 weeks and the Nashville one won’t start until mid to late Oct? TB usually doesn’t start filming until Dec.

  • ladybug

    @Jessie: I’m presuming he can juggle the schedule. Just a lot of work. It looks like a good ensemble cast. Perhaps one of these days he’ll get to do a comedy.

  • Dani


    Well it happens when you are in an English speaking country, maybe when the waiter came up or they just got carried away & started saying it in English then switched to Swedish lol

  • Jessie

    I’d love to see him do a comedy. He seems like a really funny guy.

    Somehow I doubt that.

  • Jessie

    Alex says he’s is shooting Maisie until mid Sept, but that he hasn’t signed anything yet for the other movies according to that audio interview so maybe he might only be doing one.

  • Anna skarsgard

    I love him

  • ladybug

    @Dani: Entirely possible that this happened exactly as the Daily News wrote that it happened. Though at work, when I overhear our employees who have languages in common other than English, they’ll just throw in English loan words, not do a complete switch, not when talking with each other.

  • Dani


    Then maybe they were lying or making crap up lol

  • ladybug

    @Dani: But newspapers and their ‘sources’ or ‘insiders’ never lie! :)
    He’s a sociable single male in NYC, he’s been out and about having fun and will probably continue to do so. But for some reason the dialogue mentioned in this story seems off. Of course, it’s also possible that being in the presence of Alex made the women lose their ability to speak or think coherently (in English or Swedish).

  • Lilla

    I sometimes speak English and Swedish together. Most times because there isn’t a Swedish translation…or I don’t want my older relatives to understand what I’m saying ;)

  • Dani


    Yeah my mother lived in Sweden with my dad when he coached hockey for like 5 years & she ended up speaking fluently in Swedish & she would go back & forth too with people that knew that both languages she said, sometimes something in English just slipped out lol

  • seeshay

    we are getting so spoiled by having all these great new photos every day or so, sometimes two in a day. And I’m liking what i hear about both new movies, especially the East — sounds like such a meaty role there and a lead too.

  • Joyce

    I still say he needs an intelligent, witty buxom brunette to whip him into shape. He’s bee in relationships with girls, he needs a woman.

  • Lilla

    @Dani, that’s so cool, did they like living in Sweden? I don’t even realize I switch until someone looks at me funny and asks me to repeat what I said.

  • Rachel()

    @Canuck#16: Wtf? I’m all about joking about killing people…but really? That kind of “animals matter more than ppl” hippy crap drives me crazy! No offense, but can we talk about Alex, not your plan to make the world a “better” place.

    I’m glad he’s being so consistent with his workouts! Makes me optimistic about the future.

  • Jessie

    @sweetness: She didn’t. He got rid of her.
