Alexander Skarsgard Loved Working With Lars Von Trier

Alexander Skarsgard grabs a bite to eat at one of his favorite spots, Gemma, on Wednesday (October 5) in NYC.

Earlier in the week, the 35-year-old actor premiered Melancholia with co-star Kirsten Dunst during the New York Film Festival.

Alexander recently shared that he once worked with the film’s director, Lars Von Trier, before on a Danish TV show.

“It was only one day, but I had a blast. I loved working with him even if it was only like five hours,” he told The Playlist about their past project.

“My dad [actor Stellan Skarsgard] makes his way into every single [Von Trier] project, even if it’s a really small part. He loves working with Lars and they have a very interesting relationship. And he was like, ‘If you ever get the opportunity, just do it, it’s the most amazing thing,’” he added.

    I really like this sexy Swede,he is relaxed and he doesn’t really care about what you or I think I guess laid-back works for me.Lars is really great for any actor,a big big challenge,anyway,I still love Alexander for Eric,haha.

    FAMEWHORE!! Says:

    @hm: yeah, even when the actor got the role because of his father friendship with the director…

    @FAMEWHORE!!: LVT wrote the part in Melanchola specifically for ASkars.

    LaToya Says:

    @FAMEWHORE!!: Well even if that were true, most people do get opportunities because of who they know, it is how well you do the job that matters. Obviously it is not an issue because people think he was great in the role.

    Tina Says:

    Alex’s pecs are looking quite nice in that shirt!

    @FAMEWHORE!!:There are many stars with family connections to the business. So what? They still have to be able to do a good job for the director to continue to get hired. To name a few: Keifer Sutherland, Angelina Jolie, Nicholas Cage, Gweneth Paltrow, Drew Barrymore, etc.

    FAMEWHORE!! Says:

    @Tina: I know what you mean.
    But Alex’s acting is mediocre, so you know is only his father’s name what keeps him on screen (and his appereance). But talent? no.

    Looking in a mirror Says:

    @FAMEWHORE!! Is that you Kate? Sad because you didn’t get a lot of attention while you were away doing good for the environment? Psh!
    Heard you spent the entire time drinking and partying and not really doing much.

    Alexander Skarsgard is balding Says:

    Pecs? More like man-boobs or moobs from all the Propecia he’s been using. I read that stuff gives men bigger breasts and causes their penises to go limp. That might explain his sex drive of lately. Especially, when he gets get mobbed by crazy fans who would make any man lose their stuffiness. : )
    Also, Propecia might not be working because of all the booze he has in his system. The evidence is in the pictures. He starting to wear his beanie to cover his ugly head again.

    Stop responding Says:

    Ignore trolls. They thrive off the attention. Alex is sexy and talented. He has 5 movies coming out! I can’t wait to see him.

    Someone is off their meds and trying to find meaning in their life by being a troll. I wonder how often they are refreshing their screen to respond to new comments?

    I absolutely LOVE that shirt on him …..yummy!

    Alexander Skarsgard is balding Says:

    If Lars Von Tier is writing a porn with Stellan in mind, why the heck isn’t Alexander involved? He would be perfect because of the fact he like to be naked.
    The HOes will enjoy it. Like I said before, they can make a franchise out of it and call it Swedish Meatballs I, II, III, IV, and etc. At least, he’ll become rich and never have to live on his mother’s computer room floor anymore.

    Tina Says:

    @ chelle: So do I! :)

    Jessie Says:

    He looks awsome in that shirt. That looks like a different beanie than usual. He’s obviously done some shopping, and why not when you’re in NYC all the time? I wish I could go there to shop till I dropped.
