    @Macy: He could, but he also doesn’t appear shave when he’s on vacation. I guess we’ll know in a couple of weeks.

    @ladybug: From the looks of what eveyone is wearing, not really beach weather in Rio. Bummer

    @Canuck: High of 77 fahrenheit
    But he’s a Swede, he should be able to tolerate it! :)

    Canuck Says:

    @ladybug: Yeah, but he’ll have nothing to look at! Isn’t the whole point of the beach in Rio the “scenery”? And not necessarily to be it… :)))

    @ladybug: @Camille: I keep having the urge to mail a new silver clasp and the necessary pliers to his manager. Domyou think it’s just disinterest that’s kept him from getting it fixed, or that maybe the way it broke/was repaired is sentimental?

    @Canuck: Someone needs to ask that!

    @ladybug: Yeah, they’d probably use better grammar than I did on that last, lol.

    Valter is also in Arn. It’s a pure Skarsgård party :) Family friend Joel Kinnaman is also in it. Watching it makes me a bit sad that Alex isn’t it, it’s almost like he’s missing :)

    Camille Says:

    I think he’s just a really laid back guy and it isn’t a high priority for him to get the chain fixed. He figures the safety pin is good enough I guess. I don’t know why he’d keep it broken. I can’t imagine breaking it in a sentimental way, though I can imagine that’s why he keeps a broken chain, because it means something to him.

    Anyway, here is a video of Alex leaving Rio. It’s blurry but he looks like he’s at the airport and the girl is asking him to say goodbye to fans and blow a kiss.

    Camille Says:

    Here’s a fan pic of him at the airport. I wonder if he’s flying back to NYC, or maybe straight to Shreveport.

    ladybug Says:

    @Camille: He’s got a week before filming starts so I’m presuming if he’s not heading to Shreveport immediately it’ll be very soon. This is his third movie to be filmed there. Which I find amusing, since TB is set near there, and they’ve never filmed there.

  12. 87
    Camille Says:

    I was just wondering about NYC because I’m thinking he didn’t take all his stuff with him when he went to Sweden for a week. He seemed to only have one bag at the airport, so maybe he left some clothes behind in NYC? Of course I’m just speculating, he could have just been with a carryon, and another bag checked.

    Not so much about the beard, but it’s possible it’s for the East. Though maybe he’s just taking a break from shaving and hiding his pretty face.

  15. 90
    ladybug Says:

    @Camille: I am not a fan of the beard either. Hopefully this is just his vacation look.

    OTOH, if this rumor is true I’m pretty sure the beard is gone:

    Camille Says:

    Kitsch is doing reshoots for sure, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that Alex is. Taylor has been doing them since last week I heard. Alex may have come later, but since he isn’t in the entire movie he may not have to do them at all if they’re reshooting something else.

  17. 92
    ladybug Says:

    @Camille: That’s why i put it as rumor, I think the twitter post was assuming that it would be both when that wouldn’t necessarily be the case.

  18. 93
    Camille Says:

    Yeah that’s probably true. They seem to do a lot of reshoots for this movie. They had already done one round of it a few months ago, so I wonder if it’s just due to the special effect, or what the case is.

    On another note, Alex’s siblings were in Rio also and went to the concert with him. There are pics of Bill and Eija there too. How cute that they all hung out with the big age difference. My sister is only 6 years older than me, and she treated me like garbage when I was a teenager like Eija is. It’s only in the last few years that she’s been decent. Obviously Alex thinks differently, which is great.

    @Camille: I love it that they want to get together and can afford to get together.
    I hadn’t been paying attention to reshoots for Battleship. I don’t necessarily take it as a sign that the original shoot was bad, as you said it may be due to special effects or tweaking. IIRC, Lord of the Rings also did extensive reshooting and new shots right before the final cut of each movie.
    I”m just looking for a good popcorn movie out of Battleship.

    Camille Says:

    I think they probably like to visit Stellan when he’s working if they can. It seems they’re all very close, which is really nice to see.
    The reshoots are probably to tweak special effects. Green screen work can be difficult to get the marks in the right places. You can shoot something and then when you send it to the company to add the effects in, it might not work as well as you had originally planned.

    I’d guess Alex had to go back to LA at least long enough to unpack and repack for Shreveport trip. Even HE can’t live out of a carry-on for like 4 months and 3 different continents, right?? And I bet he’s being careful to stay off radar out there. For many reasons. And I bet he’s seeing the photos of KB hanging all over Polish who is looking ever less thrilled with the whole thing at the recent Burberry event and thinking how glad he is that he wasn’t there.

    ladybug Says:

    @seeshay: I think the only reason he’d pay attention to what she’s doing is to make sure he doesn’t accidentally run into her. And for that he can probably check in with their shared publicist.

    mforman Says:

    All I keep thinking is that he is just so thrilled and happy and he looks better and better each time we see him.
    I don’t think he cares about her in the least. The only thing he probably still worries about are her drunken phone calls and texts, and to be honest, I still think she will stalk him when he is back in LA to film True Blood.
    Poor AS, he has to deal with his own personal Fatal Attraction.
    But he has to always keep in mind, he has the greatest family, the best fans, and a career that just wont stop.
    AS I am so glad I have been one of your fans for such a long time, you are so deserving of everything that you have going on now and what is to come.

    ladybug Says:

    @mforman: I don’t think she drunken texts/calls him because he either blocked her number or changed his. Or both.

    Camille Says:

    Lainey has an interesting take on KB’s recent Burberry appearance and how MP appears to be playing the game, where Alex didn’t want to be used that way by her. I have to agree with her take on why Alex didn’t show affection. I think he didn’t want it to be used, which she definitely wanted. He’s certainly affectionate with tons of people, but he went out of his way not to do it with her because he probably knew she wanted the paps to get it on film, especially in the US.
