Alexander Skarsgard: U.S. Open Spectator

Alexander Skarsgard takes in a tennis match during day two of the 2011 U.S. Open on Tuesday (August 30) at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens, New York.

The 35-year-old actor, who earlier in the day shot scenes for What Maisie Knew, watched Rafael Nadal defeat Andrey Golubev in straight sets.

Alex‘s Straw Dogs co-star, James Marsden, recently dished to BlackBook about their intense fight scenes.

“There were times when Alex really did beat the s– out of me. There was a moment when he launched me into a wall, smacked me right in the face, and pressed a gun into my forehead. He pressed it so hard you could see the ring of the barrel on my forehead afterward. But the second they cut the scene, he’d go right back to his compassionate, considerate self: ‘Are you okay, Jimmy? Everything fine?’” James shared.

    I love Alex! He’s my man crush… No homo lol!

  • AbFab

    Love his hair and he looks so good in plaid.

  • HE LOOKS DRUNK

    He looks drunk in that picture. Can he do anything sober? or is a genetic thing to be drunk?

  • Melina

    Hot! Hot! Hot! And hotter since he escaped from the clinger. :)

  • HE LOOKS DRUNK

    I mean because of her mother problem his alcohol… I hope he’s not an alcoholic, because he’s so cute and hot.
    I love True Blood.

  • Please Stop

    I’m so sick of this guy. OVER-EXPOSED FAMEWHORE!!!!

  • Canuck

    Can’t be that much fun trying to something normal and being singled out just because you are known to the public. :(

  • Bubu

    @HE LOOKS DRUNK:
    Why don’t you STFU? All brits are alcoholic then because they usually drink more than 2 beers everyday? All italians are alcoholic because they drink lot of wine during the day? STFU seriously.

  • chelle

    Oooohhh I could just eat him up with a little ranch dressing …insert puddle here :-P

  • chelle

    BTW …santress has translated GQ article on her site with hot pictures too.

  • HE LOOKS DRUNK

    @Bubu: your reply is incoherent, maybe you are drunk too.

  • hobieluv83

    so pretty. His expression makes me want to say “Why so serious?”

  • Alexander Skarsgard is balding

    @HE LOOKS DRUNK:
    You are right. I think hard for some people to comprehend the obvious b/c they like to see things in rose colored glasses.

  • Alexander Skarsgard is balding

    @HE LOOKS DRUNK:
    He probably got drunk after being chased around crazy fans. If I can recall he did have a pint of beer in one of those pictures.
    I’d lay off the man’s mommy. That’s hitting below the belt. No guy wants to hear trash talk about there mommy.

  • HE LOOKS DRUNK

    @Alexander Skarsgard is balding:I agree with you!
    They think he’s different because he’s european and scandianvian, but he’s just like your average american himbo!

  • Hannah

    He kinda looks Zoolander here, posing while trying not to pose, pretending not to know he’s being watched. Beginning to wonder if Alex has any substance.

  • Debbie

    He looks like he’s concentrating on the tennis. How that’s supposed to look like drunk is beyond me. But then what would I know? I’m only a Brit who works in the pub trade who knows 99.9% of us drink less than two pints of beer a day. I’ve no idea whether alcoholism is hereditary but would hazard a guess that stupid is solely based on some of the above comments.
    .
    I like the blue shirt on him; makes a change.

  • chelle

    @Debbie: stupidity is a dominant gene!

  • Lilla

    He looks good!! Why would you bring his mor into this? Leave her alone, she’s a lovely woman.

  • HE LOOKS DRUNK

    - he does looks good
    - I’m commenting based of recent pictures and my fan knowledge of the guy (do you know more than me?)
    - he says he “drinks like a viking” but… really?
    - I hope he still gets jobs when his body doesn’t look so good…

    for every thumb down I have a skarsgarsm… haha.

    Q: Would you compare this character more to that character you played on the episode of Spongebob, Fish #21, or closer to your character in Zoolander?
    Alex: The episode of what?
    Q: Spongebob Squarepants.
    Alex: Was I on that show?
    Q: Are you kidding me? Don’t break my heart by telling me you don’t remember your performance as Fish #21.
    Alex: Fish #21?! No I…don’t think I’ve been fortunate enough to be on that show.
    Q: I’m just looking at the Internet Movie Database…it’s on the internet so it’s gotta be true.
    Alex: Oh if it’s on the internet then I must be mistaken – yes, I had a great time doing that.

  • HE LOOKS DRUNK

    @Alexander Skarsgard is balding: hey hey hey, as an admirer of your comments, I have to say I’m not talking about his mother, I’m talking about his genes.
    It’s very different to me.

  • jacqueline

    He’s my number one male crush! But I have mixed feelings about seeing pictures of him everyday, I love a daily dosis of Alexander SkarsGOD but he must get annoyed.

  • cooklhf

    just like taylor laughtner said; the tweens are not in love with him/rob/kstew. theyre in love with bella/edward/jacob. Its some kind of vampire obsession, lol. Im sorry but he is average looking. reciting hair line, overbite teeth,blond, pale, MEH. .its just his dark mysterious demeanor playing a vampire you fools are in love with.

  • HE LOOKS DRUNK

    @Melina: he escaped from the skeleton… escaped… like he was on captivity against his will.
    Poor guy, he was over 30, but a woman managed to make a ragdoll of him
    /sarcasm = the woman is always the bad, the bad b****.

  • Lilla

    I was born and raised in Stockholm, but am working in the States now. He said that he doesn’t drink much, but when he does, he drinks like a Viking. It’s not a big deal to have a couple of drinks in Sweden. People are going to say what they want about him, but he is really a very nice, humble and funny guy. No, we’re not friends, but growing up where I did, it’s hard to not see him or his family around.

  • sweetness

    Really how can you determine from these pics whether he is drunk or not? Can a drunk person even endure sitting through watching a tennis match..The level of stupid ridiculous comments attacking this guy is amazing.
    it does prove one thing…he is officially a major star in Hollywood.

  • HE LOOKS DRUNK

    @sweetness:
    …major star in Hollywood
    …major star in Hollywood
    …major star in Hollywood
    oh, please.

  • http://a.com ka simply amazing

    he in pasketball he want play

  • Alexander Skarsgard is balding

    @HE LOOKS DRUNK:
    Oh, I must have misunderstood then.
    Maybe your right. Scandavians do look rather dunk more than half the time. Look at Lars von Tier. That guy starts spouting crap about Hitler and Askars defended him.
    Or can I mention his dad. I guess it’s okay if we say that guy b/c he did leave his poor mommy when she was period of hardship battling the bottle demon. Everyone knows his dad is a himbo.
    Poor Askars must feel like the little girl in What Masie Knew. That’s probably why he looks so close to the little girl.

  • chelle

    @cooklhf: apparently you’ve never seen any other performances AS has done, that being said many of the “fools ” on here like him for his talent. But thanx for showing people how smart u really are!

  • Alexander Skarsgard is balding

    @chelle:

    Maybe in your family. :p

  • Camille

    Alex looks fine to me. It looks like he’s squinting to see the match and concentrating. Nice to see the trolls out in full effect.

    I’m glad he’ll be on Jimmy Fallon. Maybe Jimmy won’t ask dumb questions and cut him off nonstop like Regis did.

  • bgdg

    people like him for his talent? really? bc all I see is a bunch of droooling about how hot he is, every time I click on his topics. LOL

  • Alexander Skarsgard is balding

    @HE LOOKS DRUNK:

    Heheehee. The Skarscrazies (which I will now call them) must be pissing their pants with joyful glee when they see this guy. They must going through at least a package of Depends in a day.

  • Alexander Skarsgard is balding

    @cooklhf:

    That’s exactly it. If he was not in True Blood, would anyone here really care who he is?

  • Alexander Skarsgard is balding

    @HE LOOKS DRUNK:
    I couldn’t agree more. What happen to that one? She was pretty hot when she was in Blue Crush. She seems to have issues.

  • Alexander Skarsgard is balding

    @HE LOOKS DRUNK:
    Maybe because of Kate Bosworth.
    If you didn’t eff her, he would be not as well known and the crazies wouldn’t be following him everywhere he so convienently appears.

  • Jamie

    It’s pretty clear that there is a losery person on here posting under a couple names. Get a life, you only seem to come on to bash posters and the subject of the post itself. If you don’t like the person why make so many comments? Obviously you are starved for attention. Everyone should just stop commenting to this person because that’s what they crave.

  • VeryTransparent

    @bgdg: Well damn I must be doing it wrong them, I actually became a fan because of his outstanding performance on Generation Kill, and an even bigger fan once I found out how dedicated he was while shooting. NGL he’s an attractive man, but for me it’s always been his performance that has attracted me, IMO he’s a great actor with a lot of range. Know I wouldn’t be watching TB if it wasn’t for him, and yeah it’s not for the nude/sex scene’s, they give a major case of the awkward especially the one’s with AP. But even though I love Alexander as an actor, nothing is going to make me sit through the awful acting of KB, so I’ll be missing Straw Dogs . . . with a different actress I might have given it a chance, but KB no way in hell she hasn’t done anything good since Blush Crush and I did think she was wonderful in that. Now I’d rather poke my eye’s out than sit through any of her lack luster emotionless smackting, plus I always have a overwhelming urge to feed her anorexic ass, too bad girl had potential that sadly went to her head.

    @cooklhf: I was a fan long before True Blood ever came out. I became a fan while in Sweden with my late husband when he was assigned over there. It is his talent and the person that he is that I admire. I don’t find him all that sexy. But I do find him to be one of the most sensual men I have ever seen. Sexy and good looking have a time limit. Talent and sensuality last forever. And I am not in love with him at all, I am an admirer of his work.

  • really

    Scandinavian bon bon…………… yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

  • lafamepoma

    I must say that the more older he gets, the more looks like his father. He was so cute here as a teenager.

  • Camille

    @lucy:
    No she wasn’t, she was papped in LA the same day.

  • HellzBellz

    @texas swede:
    That was really well said IMO. Sexy & Good Looking have a time limit, but Talent & Sensuality last forever. That’s how I feel about Alex. No, he isn’t the handsomest actor out there, but there is just “something” about him. Something that draws us in. You either see it or you dont. Just glad to see that so many more do “see it”. Also, I’ve read nothing but good things about him and how he treats everyone. He may be guarded or grumpy with whacko paps, but I can understand a person’s need for some sense of privacy. Seems like an all around decent guy to me. Perfect? No one is.
