Alexander Skarsgard Covers 'August Man' January 2012

Alexander Skarsgard looks sexy in a suit on the cover of August Man‘s January 2012 issue.

The 35-year-old Swedish star shared the cover with his True Blood co-star Joe Manganiello, who also graces a January 2012 cover of August Man.

In the issue, Alex shared a big fear.

“It freaked me out to be talked about in magazines or on television. It made me feel insecure and nervous,” Alexander revealed.

Alex next hits the big screen in Battleship, starring opposite Rihanna, Brooklyn Decker, and Taylor Kitsch.

The film will hit theatres on May 18.

    JJ must be getting desperate for a new Alex post, since neither the photos nor the interview are new: Photos are originally from Blackbook and the interview is from the September 10 Guardian.

    Finally a new post, even if it is about old stuff.

  • steph

    makes me sad that the next big thing we’ll see him in isn’t until may 18th. that’s so stinking far away. :(

    i’m all for his privacy but throw us a bone askars…a gym pic, anything.

  • Camille

    We’re really in a drought aren’t we? They keep hashing up old stuff.

    BTW, it’s not really related but Lainey wrote an article that explains which magazines are related by parent companies and how they aren’t super reliable. I keep thinking back to all those bunk stories regarding Alex and the sources they came from, and a lot of them came from these same magazines she mentioned, so most likely they were false.

  • chucky_monkey

    i’ll get a copy of the mag just for the heck of it since i live in malaysia ;)

  • Canuck

    @steph: I was thinking the same thing, after all it is, according to ASkars, the “boning season”, :D

    @Camille: I trust the Enquirer only if it’s writing about US politicians, because then they really have to have their legal ducks in a row. Other than that, no.
    So a woman tweeted that Alex was in the gym on New Year’s Day, but apparently someone claims to have spotted him with his brother in Costa Rica on New Year’s Eve (not that that one precludes the other)
    I think he’s randomly sending out doubles to confuse people, and he’s really sitting at home knitting or something.

  • Rina

    @ladybug: LOL. I just got such an image in my head of Alex knitting…with his huge hands. LOL It’s not impossible. ASkars fan sites sponsored a charity that gave hand-knitted scarves to abused women, so maybe he personally contributed.

  • Camille

    I’m more inclined to believe the spotting at Equinox, but I suppose it’s possible.

  • Camille

    If he was in Costa Rica, he would have had to have worn a ton of sunscreen since he said he can’t really tan while filming. Just the two of them there? Seems odd that he wouldn’t go with more siblings and friends.

  • ladybug

    @Camille: I’m actually inclined to believe the Costa Rica one myself. According to the man who claims to have spent time with it was Alex, Sam and some others. Family time in Sweden is great, but if you’re looking for a bit of tropical sun and sand, Sweden is not the place (nor is LA, the Pacific’s a little cold this time of year). And Costa Rica’s not a pap hot spot like Cabo San Lucas or Hawaii, though I’m pretty sure that you can can go to Mexico and Hawaii and not get papped..
    if he was there I hope he wore sun block and had lots fun.

  • ladybug

    His shirt needs to be tighter:

    I have no idea how old this pic is (fairly recent I’m presuming).

  • Zola24

    @ladybug: Those guys Alex is with are Colin (McAllister) & Justin (Ryan) – Wikipedia them – they are such fun and so honest. Their tweet approx 5 hrs? ago and they have been in LA for a few days.
    Hey Alexander glad you are not being hounded all the time now – just keep posing for the private photos – you’re happy, we’re happy. Stay frosty ;-)

  • chelle

    @ladybug: WOW!! that guys hair is radioactive!! Skars looks yummy as always! Well back to the grind 5 minute break is over :’(

  • ladybug

    @Zola24: Thanks! I don’t have cable so I have no idea who they are, but just from reading the twitter feed they sound like a lot fun:
    And this pic is from yesterday (Friday), so whatever he was doing over the holidays he’s back in LA and ready to work. i like him and clean cut and tidy.
    Stay frosty, time to watch Generation Kill again!

  • Camille

    He looks great in the pic. Doesn’t look like he’s got any tan at all but I guess he could have been wearing lots of sunscreen and it might have faded a bit by now.

  • justsoyouknow

    He spent the NY’rs holiday at Costa Rica with some friends (Fares etc) and family.

  • ladybug

    @Camille: Maybe he finally learned he should slather on the uva/uvb spf 50 sunblock instead of mere sunscreen, so he can avoid that red raccoon look he usually gets.
    And Colin and Justin seem to have the usual reaction to Alex:

    @KirstySMac Still can’t believe we met him. We felt like two wee beiber fans! x

    @ladybug: Yay!

  • Zola24

    @ladybug: Sorry for timing confusion earlier, have only just seen how many times Colin and Justin have posted that pic and tweeted. In a few days they’ll be wondering why their following keeps increasing exponentially. Not for long tho. In the meantime, please will everyone just stop being so enamoured with Alex ‘cos it’s sure not helping my addiction ;-)

  • Tulip

    @justsoyouknow: You’re right about AS being in Costa Rica.
    I don’t know why Colin and Justin said he was 6foot7inches. Whatever.

  • ladybug

    @Zola24:”In the meantime, please will everyone just stop being so enamoured with Alex ‘cos it’s sure not helping my addiction ;-)”
    Not going to happen! :)
    @Tulip, the 6foot7 bit, a joke, Colin and Justin seem to have a sense of humor and of exaggeration. I’m pretty sure they’re actually well aware that Alex is in fact not six feet seven.

  • bleecker street

    Glad he’s been able to enjoy his privacy, but damn it’s good to see him out and about just a little bit! I’ve missed all 6’7 of him. ;) Okay, and how cute are Colin & Justin gushing about Alex?

  • STOP

    Stop trying to make this guy “happen”. It’s not happening.

  • Canuck

    @STOP: He’s already “happened” and will continue to “happen” since he’s got a great deal of talent and not just a pretty face.

  • ladybug

    @Canuck: The ‘happened’ ship sailed some two years ago, STOP’s a little late. Besides, JJ’s only posted 4 Alex-only posts since October 15. Hardly pushing him.
    Perhaps STOP could go on one of the plethora of Vanessa Hudgens posts and complain.

  • Canuck

    @ladybug: I didn’t know that STOP was an anagram for a 4 letter name starting with “K”. lol

  • Megan

    How do u guys know he went to costa rica? Just from one persons tweet or whatever? Some of u are talking like u know for sure but only one person wrote about him being in a busy club? When he was in Mexico and brazil lots of people wrote about him and there were photos even of his family at a concert. I just find it hard to believe that he supposedly went out with all these family and stuff to a nye party and one single person wrote about it. If people in brazil know who he is then people in costa rica probably would , especially since its popular with tourists. Just my two cents

  • ladybug

    @Megan: We don’t know. You’re correct, there are no pics. But it is in fact possible that he really wasn’t recognized, TB airs in Brazil but it may not air in Costa Rica, or if it does may not be that popular. And i think it was published that he was in Brazil, even though it was a private visit. Or if he was recognized he was left alone, like he is back home in Sweden.
    Either way he’s back home in LA and hopefully we won’t have to wait another month until the next photo.

  • Costa rica Fb sighting

    Darlan Jimenez There is a Disco Bar named Cocoloco right next to the beach (wonderful place). . .and to be honest most of the people here in Costa Rica dont know them. I recognized him cause I watched True Blood. So I walked to them and started talking with them. I did not ask for authograph cause movie star come to these places cause they want to get away from Fans. They were really nice on the talk and suddenly we started joking around. I called him Eric all the time cause I did not know his name and I was kind of drunk at the time but he did not get pissed at any time. I mostly talked to his brother Sam cause they were with 5 more friends and “Eric” was talking to them most of the time. We were there until 4am or some. I did not take any pics cause my phone did not any battery but I regret it now. Any other detail – ask!!!

    In fact I see the TB series but did not know much of Alex, I was impressed to meet them in Costa Rica. After that I greet other people began to greet him but talk more with the brother with him and to be honest I do not ask much because I did not want to disturb them better
    then hesitated. I think there were 2 women. No terms were in Costa Rica

  • ladybug

    I have no idea what to make of this:
    “He’s busy now filming “True Blood,” and my sources on the set of the hit vampire show say, “If Alex and Eric had fans before season five, they’d better be prepared. Everything changes, and for the better. He’s very popular here at the show, not just by viewers of the series, Tommy.””

  • sky-blue

    @ladybug Hmmmm…interesting. Perhaps a little damage control going on? I’m hoping it’s true, but I’m not holding my breath. Alan Ball has burnt book/Eric/Alex fans way too many times. It sounds good, but I’m taking it with a large grain of salt.

  • ladybug

    @sky-blue: Oh, I’m taking it with a very, very, very, very large grain of salt. And if the changes part is true, this is Alan Ball we’re talking about, so his good changes and the rest of fandoms good changes aren’t the same thing.

  • Canuck

    @ladybug: I’ll say.

  • Tanter

    The comments from “Jason” (can’t remember his name, sorry!) sounded much more believable. I can’t remember exactly what he said, but it sounded like more Bill/Sookie was coming. Again. I’m DONE getting my hopes up with this show.

  • Tanter

    “This season I would say is the season of controversy. We’re going to turn some heads this season. We’re going to pull back to where they were and then some. If we cracked open the door before, we’re going to smash it down. As for what happens to Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Bill (Stephen Moyers), Kwanten said, “There’s more in store for them, I think. They were a match made in heaven, but with him being the King now and with her dealing with her new fairy status, there’s all sorts of things that are keeping them apart.” And what dangers lie ahead for Alcide (Joe Manganiello)? “He’s again caught in the tumultuous love affair with Sookie. You can see that it’s not one sided. That she’s been very much denying it. She treads the water very carefully there.”

    Sookie and Bill a match made in heaven – GAG :O

  • ladybug

    There’s an actual new thread on Alex, gym attire, so he’s apparently heeding our pleas.

  • Canuck

    @Tanter: I was already completely turned off by the end of season 4, Ball turned Sookie into a spineless fickle twit. I don’t want Eric to be with anyone else because I’m a book fan and he and Sookie are supposed to be together, but boy oh boy, Ball made it difficult to not wish that Russel would just come back and eat the dumb b*tch. What kind of “match made in heaven” do you have when the guy lets (or arranges) for you to get almost beaten to death?

  • sky-blue

    @Canuck thumbs up x1000.

  • mforman

    I really, really hope that Alan Ball is starting to realize he needs to lay off that crap with Sookie and Bill. He has already made Sookie a weak, stupid woman, he now needs to do major damage control.

    I hope that Eric will come to her rescue with the whole Tara situation and Sookie realizes that it is Eric who truly does love her and they get back together. Maybe Russell will take Bill, that would be a twist and Sookie and Eric, the new awesome couple, will try and help him, but they have to make up to the fans how the season ended. I still watch it and cannot believe it.

    Alan Ball needs to lay off and let the writers and other people give their ideas, because I just don’t think it is us fans who want Eric and Sookie.
