Alexander Skarsgard Talks Working With Dad Stellan

Alexander Skarsgard talks about working with his dad Stellan in the new film Melancholia in this recent interview with MTV.

“It was awesome,” Alex said. “We’ve never worked together before. He’s one of my best friends. I love hanging out with him. Being able to hang out for two months – we shot in [our home country of] Sweden, and I thought it was great that he wasn’t my dad.”

“They’re really cute together as father and son,” Alex‘s co-star Kirsten Dunst said. “They’re like bros.”

is in theaters now!

    Well, it’s not new stuff but it’ll do. I can’t wait to see this movie.

  • ladybug

    Pity, I was kind of hoping to keep that previous thread going until at least December (since it’ll probably be at least until then before we get any new pap shots of AS).

    *sigh* a girl can dream

  • Annie

    I like that he’s tall, but he always sounds reta.ded.

  • Lilla

    Oh how I’ve missed him. I can’t wait to see this!

  • Moa

    It’s “Min vackra Alex” ;)

  • Just wondering

    It’s too bad that Alex and Kate Bosworth are no longer together. They were so cute together. :(

  • ladybug

    @Lilla: It’s getting really good reviews, so hopefully I’ll be able to catch it when it comes to my local indy theater at the beginning of December.

  • ladybug

    @Just wondering: Dear troll: please define ‘cute’ and ‘together’. Thank you.

  • Just wondering

    What??? I’m a troll because I think they were cute together?? A celeb couple?? LOL, oh wow…

  • Lilla

    @ladybug, I’ve heard its getting great reviews!! I’m hoping for some time off so I can see it next week. :)

  • mforman

    I rented it on my laptop and watched it twice, once for AS of course and the second time because I couldn’t believe what an absoulutely amazing film it was. The enitre cast was just tremendous. Please if you have the chance you must see it, you will not be disappointed.

    I love how relaxed he was in this interview, it reminded me of the Jimmy Fallon show, I love when he can discuss other things than the typical things he is usually forced to discuss in other interviews.

    I really hope we do not have to wait until TB starts filming again before we get some new updates and photos of him, I have to admit I really missed seeing him, even though JJ posted this clip a little late, it was still great to see it again ( I caught it on MTV). AS and his dad really must be fun to see together, they seem like they have a great relationship.

    @#9—Just Wondering—What are you talking about, as ladybug said, please explain to us what you mean by “cute” and “together,” since neither apply at all. It really is a very strange comment.

  • ladybug

    @Just wondering: So you wanted them to stay together because you thought that they were cute together? You mean physically? So nothing about their compatibility or anything like that?
    @mforman, I’m impressed that he and his family are still very close and willing and able to spend time with each other wherever they are, whether it be Sweden or Brazil.

  • Camille

    Finally a new post, even if it’s the clip we’ve already seen. I really hope we don’t have to wait until December to see new photos of him. I’d like to see what his character looks like for The East.

  • JM

    I rented Melancholia On Demand and it blew me away (no pun intended). It’s the kind of film that creeps up on you and stays with you long after it’s over. The entire cast was incredible and Alex’s performance was beautifully heartbreaking and far removed from Eric Northman which proves what a brilliant, talented actor he is.

  • BlueCrushed

    @Just wondering:

    Cute together means people who look like they enjoy each other’s company, which Alex and Stellan apparently do. Alex looked mostly annoyed in pictures with Kate. Paps or not, he should have looked happy to be around someone he cared about but he didn’t.

  • PurpleSamantha

    Alex and Kirsten have some interesting body language going. She’s turned completely away from him, and he’s sort of turned away from her. From what I know of body language studies, I’m not sure how well they really like each other, especially from her end.

  • BlueCrushed

    I noticed the body language also. Something might have happened recently since they hung out while they were both filming in NYC this summer.

  • PurpleSamantha

    @BlueCrushed: They looked uncomfortable on the red carpet at the premiere too. Is Kirsten dating anyone?

  • BlueCrushed
  • PurpleSamantha

    @BlueCrushed: Thank you, couldn’t remember. That’s from this spring, are they still together?

  • lafamepoma

    Oh i needed a dosis of Alex, he’s like drugs, i wanna see him more here. It must be funny working with your dad in your job, well in fact on acting cause other jobs don’t thin it must be really cool.

    he’s got that thing, he’s so sweet, love him…………

  • Must’ve seen a different movie

    I watched Melancholia On Demand. While it was beautifully shot (as I knew it would be) I thought the movie was so boring. And unfortunately, if you plan on watching because Alex is in it, just beware that he’s barely in it.

  • kathy

    @Just wondering:
    yeah most people on here don’t like kate and have a really weird obsession with Alex. Basically if you give kate a compliment, you are considered a troll….Oh and most of these middle aged hags think have a mental shrine built in honor of Alex and bellieve they have some real chance in he** with him….blows my mind how people get real defensive of someone that they don’t know and probably will never…feel sorry for the man in their life.

  • kathy

    oh by the way…the only reason i had clicked on this thread was because of Kirsten…I have always thought she was an amazing, beautiful, talented actress, glad to see her making a come back.

  • BlueCrushed

    @Must’ve seen a different movie:

    Good news for you, the new Harold and Kumar movie will be out soon. Sounds more of your speed.
    Melancholia is a beautiful and very engaging movie if you don’t need Bang! Boom! every other minute.

  • BlueCrushed


    “blows my mind how people get real defensive of someone that they don’t know and probably will never”

    Yet here you are defending Kate Bosworth. Pot meet kettle.That means…you….are …doing…the…same …thing…you…are …accusing …others…of.

  • Ella

    People can say whatever they will about Kate B. She is a very pretty girl, and she did mean a lot to Alex otherwise he would never have brought her with him to Sweden to meet his family and his closest friends. Sorry but that’s a fact.

  • Sorry

    @Ella: Sorry, but Alex also brings home a lot of his friends to Sweden, just as a lot of his Swedish friends visit him in LA for weeks. His mother wasn’t even home the first time and the second visit, Alex was working the entire month on Melancholia.

  • Cafélady

    Oh no…that’s too stupid, can’t see the vid because “Sorry, we’re unable to offer this video to users in your region” :(
    What a end for an sunday for me…(*starts crying*)

    Same thing on several fan-sites who had posted this vid too….(*head desk*)…may be I’m cursed or something…lol

  • Risk

    @just wondering: I agree with you, Kate and Alex were a cute couple. It’s rather silly how AS fans attack posters who have opinions different from theirs. Anyhow, I think Kate looks very happy these days. I hope Alex is happy too.

  • Cafélady

    @kathy: well…I think it’s pretty sure that Alex’ fans are of all ages, genders and social classes…as for the named “middle aged hags”, I think that they are able to enjoy their fandom yet to an super-talented actor like Alex, is -in my book- proof enough that they’re younger (in mind) than you’re have thought…
    …and btw. how old are you???
    You sounds somehow very old and bitter, I think…

  • BlueCrushed


    He brought Keith Ellis there first, so what? Btw, OB took Kate to meet Alex’s family years before when he was working with Stellan in POTC. Strange that Stellan didn’t seem to think that KB was more than “nice” considering she was on location with OB while he filmed POTC and must have socialized with her more than a few times. Doesn’t sound like Stellan had a good opinion of her.

  • kathy

    Not in a psychopathic way…… BIG DAMN DIFFERENCE!!! Get a grip

    If I don’t like a certain star, i don’t bash them…but i will make fun of folks like you (thoose who sound like stalker nut jobs, that these stars are lucky that they have never met)

  • kathy

    @Cafélady: exactly how do i sound bitter? I am not the one trashing on stars that i do not know, unlike you and half of this thread…i think that makes me more sane then your psychotic A**. READ MY POST…the only people i was making fun of are you pathetic loosers not liking particular stars because they dated Alex…it’s amazing that it doesn’t take much to stir sh** up and get you all going crazy…its laughable… YOUR LAUGHABLE…Say what you like, but i will continue to laugh and make fun of you since you have no problem doing that to anyone else. HAHA

  • ladybug

    @Risk: It’s not because it’s a ‘different’ opinion, it’s because it’s not any different than those who’d post that they thought AS and KB should stay together to have ‘beautiful blond babies’, as if KB and AS should exist for the poster’s eugenic fantasies.
    @Ella, I don’t think that most posters here would dispute that at some point in the relationship AS was taking it pretty seriously, so I’m not sure what your point is.
    (ok, I’ll try and stop feeding the trolls now)

  • Canuck

    Well, now that you KB fans have yet again slipped her name into an ASkars post because she gets no online exposure for just being herself and needs to piggyback on someone else, can you please just f off now? Thank you.

  • ladybug

    @Canuck: And here I thought Canadians were supposed to be nice and polite! :)

  • Cafélady

    @kathy: well…nice that I’ve could bring a bit joy in your apparently sad existence… ;)
    As for your post; I think we have something in common (but rather sure one and only this), I must laugh about your reply too…sounds as we both had fun now…*grin* (seems like my sunday is -almost- saved!)

    Unfortunately, no one can people take serious with an behave like yours…
    …btw if I had really trashed someone of the so called “stars” here, in that case you surely can show me this special posts, aren’t you??

    …and “how do you sound bitter exactly?” well…I guess, your own post-reply should have been answered your question…

    So, enough now; @ladybug and @Canuck are right; don’t feed the trolls…(put myself in the corner)…promised! :)

  • Camille

    Seems to me like everything was going fine and nobody brought up her name until a fan of hers brought it up. Seriously, go back and read the thread. It was all about Alex until someone brought her up and then people started talking about them as a couple. It seems like those people are the ones who wanted to bring that into the conversation, because until then, it was not being discussed at all.

    Just Wondering’s post started all of this, and that was probably the intention. Then others, or perhaps even the same person kept things going and other posters have fed into it and contributed. IMO it is over and should be left alone. It need not be discussed any further. If you want to give the girl compliments then do it on her threads, that’s what they are for. The same should be done for Alex threads, KB threads should really no longer be littered with points about him, seeing as they are no longer connected in any way.

    Just my two cents.

  • http://none texas swede

    We finally get a new post about Alex and instead of ignoring the bait of the troll someone jumped right in and now there is a battle going on. As Cafelady said “enough”. Just follow Alex’s lead and take the high road ladies. I am going to watch some Generation Kill and enjoy my afternoon. A wonderful day to all.

  • ladybug

    @texas swede: I was intending to watch GK for the umpteenth time this weekend (Being Veteran’s/Remembrance weekend) but haven’t been able to get around to it.
    “In limited release, two films stood out. After being available on-demand for a three weeks, Lars Von Trier’s Melancholia still debuted with a solid $265,000 out of 19 theaters, leading to a $13,947 per theater average….”
