Alexander Skarsgard: 'Melancholia' NYC Premiere!

Alexander Skarsgard and Kirsten Dunst attend the premiere of Melancholia on Monday (October 3) at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in NYC.

The 29-year-old actress wore a Chloe dress and Sonia Rykiel shoes for the event, which was held during the 49th annual New York Film Festival, while Alex suited up in YSL.

Guests, who also included Alex and Kirsten‘s co-star Charlotte Gainsbourg, were seen sipping Apothic Red wine.

The cast then headed over to the DeLeon Tequila-sponsored after party held at the Stone Rose Lounge, where Alex chatted up 30 Rock‘s Jack McBrayer. (They hung out backstage when Alec Baldwin hosted the Saturday Night Live season premiere on September 24.)

    @Camille: Quite true. But he’s wearing the h*ll out of that YSL suit.

  • Camille

    That he is! The man knows how to wear a suit that’s for sure.

  • Canuck

    @Camille: No jacket off, afterparty pix?

    I am in South East England and would have to go in to London to see it, so will have to wait for the DVD unfortunately

  • ladybug

    @Macy: I’ll watch on dvd, but I’ll turn the volume off, the subtitles on, and have the finger on the fast-forward button.
    This amuses me:

  • Camille

    I guess not but according to JJ’s twitter he was handing out smooches. JJ got one, and so did some other girl.

    It will probably be the same thing for me too. I just don’t know if I can stomach it. LOL, I read that also. “I didn’t do sh*t” He’s got a great sense of humour.

  • ladybug

    @Camille: He does have an excellent sense of humor, which is impressive since English isn’t his native language.
    As for the movie, I’ll be fastforwarding certain parts, and not just because of a certain actress. Not too sure I’ll be able to handle the siege scenes.

  • Camille

    I’m not so sure those parts will bother me, as I’ve got a pretty decent stomach for that type of thing but she will bother me something fierce. It’s not just her either, there are lots of actors and actresses that I just can’t stand, so I don’t watch their movies/shows. Katherine Heigl is one, Gerard Bulter is another. Just can’t stomach them so I stay away.

  • ladybug

    @Camille: I think it’s the siege in combination with KB. I don’t like Heigl or Butler either (I suspect Heigl’s ruined the movie of the first Stephanie Plum novel). I hope that if Alex ever does a rom-com it’s not with either Heigl or Kate Hudson.

  • Camille

    I really dislike rom coms on principle, so I don’t like many of the actors who continually make them. It’s just not a genre that I have any interest in. KB has just always bothered me, even before Alex. I never watched her movies, outside of Blue Crush before I knew who she was. She’s just a terrible actor.

    AS is the only man that can pull off that color combination and look absoultely amazing. The man is a true force of nature.

    Also, I will never understand why some people find the need to comment on his parts. AS is an actors actor, which means he can be in one scene or the entire movie, the point being, when that man is on the screen he owns it.

    That is what makes him a true actor not just some fly by night
    character actor; he takes over the entire movie when he walks on screen and does it in such a way that he just adds to the film, while not letting his co stars feel bad.

    I love how now that Joe M thinks he is something, he dumps his gf who he had planned to marry and couldn’t stop talking about. The funniest is that his family told him to because they said she was after his money and was using him for fame (Boy, that sounds familiar, we write about the fame thing and he copies it, maybe he should get his own things). He truly is starting to seem quite sad and desparate, maybe he should look up a certain tumor, they both love to call the paps.

    AS makes real movies and wants his films to mean something,
    Joe M wants to be in any movie in which he gets to take his shirt off.

    Let us hope that AS keeps up his winning ways at this years Scream Awards, because like I have said before he deserves everything he gets and is awarded.

    He is truly is the whole package.

    @Camille: don’t blame you. I saw Straw dogs and really liked it though, despite her. I thought she kind of played herself LOL. Bit irritating yes, but knowing she was past history helped. Alex’ performance was excellent and worth watching the movie just to see it. He really sold his character of Charlie as NOT such a bad guy, you could understand and sympathize with where Charlie was coming from.

    I watched the crappy quality clips on youtube. I didn’t really care for the movie, not even because of her, but because I just didn’t find it that good. I wasn’t overly interested in anything other than watching what Alex did. The other parts of the film didn’t really hold my interest, which was surprising because I thought they would. I ended up skipping a lot of it. I just couldn’t get into it at all. Alex did a really good job though, and he looked fantastic. I agree, KB was just playing her annoying, attention wh*re self. Her character drove me nuts, with the feet in her husbands face, etc. Get a hobby lady, your husband is trying to WORK!

    Can you put up a link, cuz’ I can’t find it on youtube :(

    I will have to agree that everyone looks tired, but it could also just be everyone is busy to! Movies that each actor or actress is working on and I am sure Mr. Skarsgard is very home sick. I think the break up was very hard on him and the stress of dealing. This is why celebrities need to date other people that are not famous. You are used up until a person gets what they want. I know lots of pretty girls and guys who don’t want anything to do with money or fame. (Clooney’s cocktail mate is the exception, almost everyone in Las Vegas is trying to get a head).
