Alexander Skarsgard Loved Working With Lars Von Trier

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.

  12. 12
    FAMEWHORE!! Says:

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

    Canuck Says:

    @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.

  16. 16
    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.

    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?

    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.

    @ chelle: So do I! :)

    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.

    I think it’s funny JJ calls Gemma one of Alex’s favorite spots when it is just the restaurant in his hotel. How long is Alex going to be in NY? Maybe I should get a job there…

    He probably bought some bras to keep his fun bags up. : )

    Melancholia is a visually stunning movie. You really have to see it in theaters to appreciate the amazing cinematography. I thought all the actors did a great job in it.

    Becca Says:

    I love this restuarant. They have the best food and lounge area. You can go late night and grab a drink to relax or take your favorite book. I think its a little creepy how there shooting him eating. Come on! Give the guy a break and let he relax! I wouldn’t want someone seeing me slurping down some joe n’ cream!

    blah Says:

    @Alexander Skarsgard is balding: Alex has said that the one thing he would not do for a project is have sex for real, so that definitely rules out porn. Plus, Lars has told Stellan that he won’t be having any sex in the porn.

    I don’t think Alex called the paps, I just think he’s predictable. Just like in LA, he has his favourite places to eat. And he’s suspected to be staying at the hotel that Gemma is attached to (or at least was for WMK), so it makes sense that he’d eat there.

    I saw Melanchola at tiff and it was very good. My fav Lars film (actually mini-series) is Kingdom. I had 2 Akars sightings – 1 opening night there was a Q&A at the end. Then outside his hotel, I was across the street and he was signing autographs.

    Love the way he’s flirting with this reporter.

    seeshay Says:

    looks like he’s off from filming and enjoying a day to walk around and shop and trying to go incognito. He looks better here than in the Disconnect wardrobe for sure. Wonder if Disconnect is done now?

    Camille Says:

    It’s possible he’s got a couple days off. I don’t think The East starts filming until the end of Oct or early Nov.

    He looks yummy. I think he’s gotten himself a few new clothes lately. He probably had mostly summer stuff since he was in Sweden in July and then went straight to NYC from there. Looks like he was at the gym again also.

    Tina Says:

    There was a twitter to OLV from a fan who went to see him on the Disconnect set and they were told Alex was done filming his part.

    I just loves how he looks in a beanie, I am so glad it is back, he can wear one in gray or black or just a combination of colors, those beanies just seem to fit him perfectly.
    Just when you think he cannot look any better, surprise surprise.
    One of the best parts about him (there are so many), is how genuiely humble and kind he really is, that just adds to his good looks.

    @FameMonster–I have seen that You Tube Video before, he was just so boyish, it just made his flirting even cuter and more adorable.

    @seeshay–I meant to comment on the thoughts you had at the premiere in NYC. You are so right the creature was actually paid for being herself; a disgusting tramp, who thinks she is better than everyone else and talks down to everyone because she thinks she has a career (what a joke).

    AS totally stole the movie and I say that because he really made you not just hate Charlie, which is usually what happens with a villian, he made you want to understand him and in the end you really did not know how to feel about him. That makes an actor an actor; which is truly what he has always been.

    I am so excited with that list of upcoming projects he has. It is about time American audiences will get to see a real actor, they will not be disappointed.

    @Famewhore—Kate, Kate, Kate, you really need to get help. It has been stated before but with these posts you have shown that you are getting worse.
    AS doesn’t need to call the paps, he is someone who is not only talented but he is someone of interest, whereas, what are you but a disgusting famewhore, whose own WIKI page calls her acting (if that is what you call it) wooden.
    You actually have the nerve to say his acting is medicore, have you seen any of his films or just pretend to. He is an actors actor. AS choses his roles, he just doesn’t make a film playing the same type of character as before, he always wants to push the envelope and he never, ever disappoints.
    AS never denied that his father wanted him to work with Lars and what is wrong with that. His performance was amazing and I am quite sure that both Lars and his father were thrilled with his performance as were the reviewers.
    Pushing all this negativity (the Vodka post) just goes to further show us it is you KB, AS is someone who has friends, is not only well respected in this industry but well liked. He is a humble man who truly does appreciate his fans.
    KB the only friends you have are on your payroll, you have been in this business for 10 years and nobody can name a fellow actor or actress that you are friends with.
    I think the entire industry was aware that whatever you guys had was over way before this years Coachella, but him being the gentleman he is agreed to let you save face; so what do you do in return, have a source (Robin of course) get Star Magazine to run a piece about how you and MP became “friendly” during filming. Why do that, do you really enjoy being the bed hoping tramp all the time. Drunk calling and texting him really just shows how classy you are.
    People respect AS, they do not respect you and never will.
    I know your 2 stans will call me fat, ugly and all the other names that show your 2 fans have just as much class as you; but sorry my opinion of AS has only grown throughout the years and with his upcoming film projects, I do not see that changing anytime soon.
    Also, cannot wait to see what he does next for charity; you see KB he actually helps out those less fortunate than himself, another reason to just really love the guy.
    The most amazing thing I find is that gossip sites, and fans alike were so thrilled when he dumped you. Everyone missed seeing the original AS, thank goodness he is back.
    Karma really is a bi*ch.
