Alexander Skarsgard Covers 'Men's Journal' October 2011

Alexander Skarsgard gives a smoldering look on the cover of the October 2011 issue of Men’s Journal.

Here is what the 35-year-old Straw Dogs actor had to share with the mag:

On the attention he receives: “Of course it’s flattering. I mean, God, I’m human. But you have to be able to laugh at yourself.”

Alex’s Melancholia co-star Kirsten Dunst on his personality: “I was surprised at how goofy he was. Almost like a puppy in a body that’s too big for him. All these girls are like, ‘Oh my god, he’s so hot.’ But he’s really such a goof.”

On his days in the Swedish navy: “I could have, like, backpacked around Asia. But I wanted a challenge. Usually we’d be out for two weeks, just me and my men. We’d come at night in speedboats, with our dry suits and our weapons, and, under the cover of darkness, swim onto the island. Then we’d camp out somewhere, dig a hole in the dirt, and take pictures and notes.”

    Guardian interview. Not bad, but a pity the photo editor couldn’t differentiate between Bill and Gustaf.

    Army instead of backpacking around Asia!! HA—someone is jealous of Joel Kinnaman. He wants to downplay backpacking around Asia compared to his military service because that is what Joel did…backpacked all over Asia. Wow, Alex!! Wow…being a b*tch is not going to make you a better actor and get you better roles. Joel will win in the acting department against you. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. How bout them apples!! He is becoming such an undercover hater!

    I read Alex interview for MenJournal, he seems simple and funny, relaxed.
    But I hated his view on the rape in Straw Dogs, he is sad for Charlie, because Charlie doesn’t think is rape…
    I love his anecdotes about his family and filming (and he said pu5sy hehe), LIGHT stuff. He should stay in that territory, “deep” is not for him.
    (my opinion)

    Aw, our Joel Kinnaman troll is back. Funny thing is, Joel and Alex are friends, so I’m not sure what you’re trying to do here.

    @Annalisa: WOW I think that Joel Kinnaman would have made a better Eric than Alex.

    FameMonster Says:

    @Jen: Joel Kinnaman is in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo coming out December. There both good actors, but Joel is my fav.

    Lilla Says:

    I doubt he’s jealous of Joel, considering they are friends. Also, it’s required to do military service in Sweden.

    Cookiecrisps Says:

    He was not in the Army or Navy. He was a Marine-there’s a big difference. In his militry service pic it is very clear that he is a Marine, cuz u can see the uniform.
