Alexander Skarsgard: HBO Golden Globes After Party

Alexander Skarsgard suits up for HBO’s 2012 Golden Globes Awards Party held at Circa 55 Restaurant on Sunday (January 15) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Before ending the night at the exclusive Chateau Marmont, the 35-year-old Swedish actor hit up the Weinstein party and CAA talent agency’s soiree at Sunset Tower.

On Friday, Alex and his dad Stellan kicked off the awards show festivities by attending the ‘W’ Magazine Pre-Golden Globes party.

Next up for Alexander is the boardgame to movie adaption of Battleship which is expected to hit theaters in May. He’ll be starring opposite Brooklyn Decker, Rihanna, and Liam Neeson.

    He not only looks gorgeous but in such a good mood. You truly cannot take your eyes off of any of the 4 photos that JJ has given us.

    I wish he gave us more than 4, but I don’t think I will be greedy just greatful for the 4.

    He really does look better and better each time we see him. I am so glad he is back filming, where we can get these type of photos.

    Lol, Skarsy’s hair looks like he just rolled out of bed. Did someone stay out way too late with his Dad the night before? I’ll bet those two are a blast when they’re out together.

    @Canuck: Pity there are no sightings of Stellan from these parties.
    Alex was also at the Weinstein party:

    Perhaps JJ is saving those photos for later.
    We’ve had a nice run of Alex photos so perhaps now he’ll go back to wearing the Magic Beanie of Invisibility and we won’t see him again for months.

    @Fede: Oh she looks like her, you’re right, i just googled it. So another liason on the set? Or maybe they were just there because of Season 5. In fact thy weren’t together on the carpet or somewhere else as far as the paparazzi told us.

    Canuck Says:

    @ladybug: “Magic Beanie of Invisibility”. LOL

    He’ll probably be out and about schmoozing during the rest of awards season, so hopefully we’ll get a few more photos in before the Oscars end.

    Poor Alex. He’s shown in the presence of a female not his mom or his sister and he’s automatically linked romantically with her.

    Sounds good to me. She’s cute so go for it Alex.

    Just think Says:

    I kind of think they’re just sharing a ride if it is Lucy Griffiths. His dad and Fares (at least Fares is) is in the car with them. You’d think he’d have learn from his last on-set dalliance to keep the two separate. But also, if it is Lucy – she’s a good 10-11 years younger than him. Whatever.

    Hello all –

    Alex is looking good. I do love a man in a tux especially one who wears it so well!

    Question – where are these pictures of Alex in a car with Fares, his Dad and a mystery woman? Were this pics from last night?

    Inquiring minds…..

    The pics with the woman are on webcom. But there is no one with them in the shot. The pics are editted to show only them. Don’t know where they found the ones with Stellan and Fares.

    Hawt Says:

    I am looking at the pictures Alex is totally into his conversation with whom ever that is and she looks bored that no one is talking are looking at her until they almost blind her of course that woke her up a bit. I am going to say they share the same ride to where it is that they are going to.

    GirlWithNoTattoos Says:

    Hate to break it you guys but that girl in the photos is Lucy Griffiths and she and Alex are *definitely* an item. They first started becoming close because they have some very ahem, “intense” scenes together on True Blood this year and apparently he became totally smitten. Unlike his previous relationship this girl apparently makes him very happy and he’s been very vocal about it to his friends and family. He “adores” her and that’s one of the reasons why he’s been instructing everyone on his “team” (manager, agent, PR) that he wants to be out of the pap spotlight for awhile. After what he experienced with Kate he wants this relationship to exist in glorious anonymity. I’m amazed they even managed to get a shot of them together at all, but this parties are considered major industry events and for some up and comers they are not to be missed. And from what I’ve heard since around mid-December these two have not wanted to leave each other’s side. He even came back early from a trip to the Islands to be with her during the break. Or so I was told. This should be an interesting relationship to watch develop, the only time I’d ever heard of him like this with a woman was Sara, but that was extremely tumultuous and ultimately didn’t last. So I guess we’ll see.

    Based on a picture of Alex and his Tb costar Lucy Griffith in a car going to anther one of the GG parties fans around the fandom are questioning are they aren’t they all over again. (Shakes head)
    I believe his swedish actor friend fares fares accompanied Alex to the parties. You can see him lurking in one of the party photos in the background.

    Well where have you insiders been long time no see. Please not again, it is very plausible they have become friends during filming but dating not even convinced. It’s just a harmless car pic which has been taken out of context.
    Nice little story though.
    I need more proof to believe it. Not based on a car pic.

  38. 38
    Just wow. Says:


    Thank you for the pic, she has been identified as his TB co-star 25 yr old Lucy griffiths she plays his on screen sister Nora, and according to the Insider they an in love couple and Alex adores her based on that car pic. Lol lol

    insiders lol Says:

    @GWNT I love insiders they always seem to know things when things appears. why didn’t this person post when Alex was at GG party with his Dad alone or when when he was getting his tux fitted with his dad alone. There has been tweets and FB of people seeing Alex around LA alone so if he so desperately in love with this girl why is he still doing things Alone without her.
    But I know the answers Insiders are full of BS. I doubt they even had scenes with each other yet. So you are way off.

    Sure Says:

    @GirlWithNoTattoos: Yeah, such intense scenes considered filming for TB started in December (and Alex started late) and then went on break without two weeks and just started up again. So within a month he’s already intensely in love? Really? Also, thought he was in Costa Rica for the break. With family.

  43. 43
    Just wow. Says:

    I forgot about Alex being in cost rica for new year with family identified was his brother sam and some friends what no GF lucy?
    And that GG w magazine party alex accompanied by his dad stellan why did alex not take his rumoured GF lucy with him if he adored her so much ? and what islands did Alex come back from early to be with lucy?

  44. 44
    Emily Says:

    Lol the best part of Skarsgard being seen with a *GASP* member of the opposite sex, are the inevitable trolls that like to make stuff up. I’m also pretty sure they’re still going down the whole “Eric being in love with Sookie” angle, so it’s pretty improbable that he’s been filming intense scenes with this woman.

  45. 45
    Bubu Says:

    The Insider is back.
    I was waiting for this moment. Ou you Beelsbabe or Joesbabe are really comical i’m telling you. He was in Costa Rica and Nora won’t appear till episode two from what ive been told and they are filming that episode basically NOW. They filmed a couple of weeks than went on a break and Alex arrived on the set even later than other co-stars but guess what? They fell in love because of scenes they didn’t shoot yet and he came back early from Island where he never went.

    This sound funny. Keep going Insider.
    And if they are together i’m happy, she’s really really cute and apparently not a fmew***.

    texas swede Says:

    @Canuck: Webcom is an online sight where professional photographers sell there shots to the public. Not just pap shots but news, travel and other shots as well. You can sign up there and use the shots (With the watermark) for free. You must download them you cannot right click them. Or you can pay for using them a certain number of times. Alex’s shots have run from 45 to 100 dollars.
    I use to use them for my travel shots and concert shots. Still get an occasional check from them.

    Cafélady Says:

    He looks fantastic! Not only that he looks super-good in this suit (of course), but he looks like as he was in a very good mood too. I guess, these are the sort of pics of him which we all love to see.

    As for the pics with his actress-colleague; it’s always the same old game – as soon as he will be seen in company with any woman (doesn’t matter for what obvious, harmless reason ever) which isn’t his sister or his mother, they start the rumour-machine already.

    It was obviously the official hbo-after party, so I guess very probable it was rather an professional appointment for him (and his companionship) than anything else.

    lol “Magic Beanie of Invisibility”?? lol…I love such word-creations…really good…:)

    Well, it’s obvious Alex goes to work to find his girlfriends lol. I’m just surprised that Just Jared hasn’t reported the story about Alex and Lucy. I wish Alex the best no matter who he dates!

    Video. Says:

    Here is a video of Alex and Lucy, I cannot tell if he was holding her hand or Lucy grabbed his arm as he was walking. oh well what ever makes Alex happy she is cute “…………………………But I would love Alex to date charlize theron now she is a stunning women great actress.

  52. 52
    ladybug Says:

    @Video.: It would be possible for them to be actually dating and our ‘insider’ be completely wrong on all the details. If they are actually ‘together’, she’s cute, she looks like she eats, she hasn’t been calling the paps on herself, so an upgrade.
    “hat moment when you get hooked on True Blood and watch two whole seasons before realizing that Eric Northman and the dude in Melancholia are the same guy

    lol that’s the first time I’ve ever heard it put this way. Usually it’s “He’s Meekus in Zoolander?!?!” or “the guy that pushed Gaga off a balcony?!?!”

    A testament to his acting range, any of these statements. :)

  53. 53
    hmmmmmm Says:

    @Video – I saw the video and it looked to me more that she was with Fares than Alex lol. Alex looked a little tipsy there. It looked like to me someone was grabbing his arm. By the way Bjorn was there and on some boards they are saying that the blonde is his wife Lisa why I don’t know because it obvious it isn’t her.

  54. 54
    Mia Says:

    That link doesn’t work. Here is the right link of Alex, Fares and Lucy:
    They’re definitely there together, that’s for sure.

  55. 55
    moore Says:

    Who is Bjorn? Funny name by the way, Bjorn, lol. ;)

  56. 56
    Just wow. Says:

    It’s hard to say watching the video if Alex is holding her hand or she grabbed his arm, it seems very soon? Alex never touched Kate’s hand in the USA so Alex has no probes with public hand holding how long have Alex and Lucy known each other a month?
    It’s an up grade for sure, but we shell see if there are any further sightings of them? Over the next few weeks.
    it may not be as serious as the suppose insider makes it out to be. There probably just having some fun and why not Alex is hot. It won’t last forever. Every women Alex is seen with is is always accused of dating ?
    he will find his Swedish wife someday who would love him for who he is and able to see past his good looks.

  57. 57
    hmmmmmm Says:

    Also to add, I don’t know because it is a short window of them talking they did look to seem kind of awkward. Just my opinon.

  58. 58
    Gina Says:

    I have to say, I heard back in December she was cast in this role. Don’t hate me But – the very first thought I had when I say her picture was “she is Alex’s type”. Skinny blond KB was not his type. Dark, long hair, normal to curvy figures, seem more his type.
    I don’t know if this means they are dating, on a date, hanging out, getting to know each other because they -spoiler alert- from everything I’ve read they are going to have a physical relationship on-screen together.
    Maybe it’s something only actors can do but I COULD NOT imagine getting into a relationship with a coworker when you just started working together. Depending on how things go, dating and they it doesn’t work out, could make for some very tense TB sets.

  59. 59
    Shannon Says:

    I love how she’s basically a no-name actress that nobody knows anything about, yet she’s an automatic upgrade from KB. Not saying I disagree, I just think it’s funny.

    Their body language looked off if they’re supposed “lovers.” There didn’t seem to be any flirty banter. If anything, she looked bored. The brief hand holding looked like he was walking away & she pulled him back.

    I know he wasn’t super affectionate with KB in public, but there are videos of them in the beginning where they looked flirty. Def. different from this. I’m gonna put this one under professional obligation for now.

  60. 60
    Cafélady Says:

    @Anne: #50
    well…I think, these ‘official’ partys are mostly professional related too – not only but too; means that this has often something of an ‘duty-appointment’ to show oneself there. In this case hbo is the employer of alex and these actress. Of course you aren’t really forced to do it, but from the side of the employer mostly and indirectly is presence ‘desired’.
    And no one says that one can’t combine duty with pleasure. Or that it isn’t allowed to have fun too at an ‘duty appointment’. :)

    So even IF it should be, that this was somehow something like an ‘date’ for him – then good for him, of course.
    But with only one pic (the car) and these typical pap-vid up to now, I would say now at this time – it’s a bit too jump to conclusion to claim somewhat like that.
    And I guess, if one really want to have a ‘date’ with whomever to share a bit ‘romantic’ time – than one would surely pick an different, better place for it.

    Btw. this actress is really beautiful. So it’s quite understandable that every men would give her every attention.
    Just to avoid some special thoughts again…;)

  61. 61
    Yeah... Says:

    …she sure does. I hope she doesn’t drown in the shower lol.

  62. 62
    ladybug Says:

    @moore: Bjorn is a friend of Alex’s and Bjorn means ‘bear’ in Swedish, not an uncommon male name in Sweden.
    @Gina, I’ve not seen any spoilers that say Eric will hook up with Nora, do you have any links? I’m presuming that neither Bill nor Eric will remain chaste/celibate now that Sookie is taking a break from her two vamps, but I’ve not seen anything on which characters AB might be considering as possibilities for them to hook up with.

    Alex and Lucy have the same manager. They could’ve met a long time ago/known each other for a while.

    You mean we should hold off on expecting the wedding announcement? :)
    I have no idea what their relationship is, but I wouldn’t be surprised it this was outing was only work related. Remember how much we over analyzed the pics/videos of him at ComicCon?

  66. 66
    Gina Says:

    My bad. I just went back and re-read the blub about Nora/Eric relationship. I read it wrong. It was a press release of her getting the part and it said she’d be showing skin but probably not as much as her brother Eric. I’m paraphrasing.

    Even if their characters aren’t romantically involved, they are going to be working together a lot.

  67. 67
    Camille Says:

    Alex looks great there. It’s too bad there aren’t more pics with his dad and Fares. I watched the video and it just looks like she grabs his hand to pull him back because they want to takes photos of the two of them. It looks more like a work thing to me because then they walk separately from that point on and I agree it doesn’t look like a flirty interaction. They probably went to promote the new season and her role if she’s going to be a regular.

  68. 68
    mforman Says:

    You know it truly makes me laugh how the haters completely over react.

    I also read they have the same manager, when she grabs his hand or vice a versa, it looks like they are heading to the car that brought the group there and then realize they are heading in the wrong way, so they just turn around.

    It does seem that Fares is paying much more attention to her and that AS is quite relaxed and just having a good time, like he always does with his friends and coworkers. If I had to guess it looked liked she went with Fares and either she, Fares or Bjorn was directing him to his car and that obviously involved taking his hand.

    She started filming her suppossed hot and heavy scenes with AS, while AS was away with his friends and family in Costa Rica having a great time on the final leg of his vacation.

    He went to the W party with his dad and of course after the GG he went to the HBO after party with his cast and crew, all of which he refers to as his LA family.

    I totally agree that this was a business thing. Cant we leave him alone for once. He looked absolutely perfect on both nights, not only perfect look wise but look at just how happy and relaxed he looked, I mean seriously, he wanted to have fun and did and that is all that his fans have wanted for him for so long.

    This upcoming year and the next few are his and his alone, I cannot wait to see what roles he will playing. I have never been disappointed in anything he has done and I do not expect to be now.

    We all wanted video and photos and now we are getting them and of course these stans know who they are they have to start with just these ridiculous posts to feel impoortant, I never felt sorry for them until tonight.

    But he just looks sooooo amazing.

  69. 69
    insiders lol Says:

    So I watched the video and I am going to say that she is highly probably with fares fares, when she walks off first it was behind fares that she grab hold of Alex to let them know that they stop here is another video at the end of it 3:04 she is standing there waiting with Fares if she was with Alex wouldn’t she be standing next or to Alex? Oh Alex is no where in sight Is that not odd especially If they can’t be parted from each other.

    I am going to say either she hook up with fares at the HBO thing or before that either ways. I am saying Alex is NOT the one she is interested in and him also NOT in her.

  70. 70
    POGO Says:

    Just my 2 cents.

    There is Fares then her then there is another man on the other side of her. It looks like he is the one who grabed the sleeve of Alex’s jacket.

    Just what Im seeing in the video, I could be wrong.

  71. 71
    ladybug Says:

    @mforman: “You know it truly makes me laugh how the haters completely over react.” For the most part I don’t think it’s haters or even people pretending to be ‘insiders’, it’s just that people are really, really, really, really interested in his private life and any possible hint of a relationship-possible hand holding, being in the same car, standing within 10 feet of someone, is fodder for being over analyzed.

  72. 72
    Canuck Says:

    Well I hope they all had a good time at the party, regardless of what their relationships are to each other.

  73. 73
    Canuck Says:

    I’ll also say it’s likely she’s not with either of them. The woman just arrived in town and probably knows virtually no one except the crew and castmates on TB. I can easily see him being the kind of guy who would say “hang with us, fellow transplant” since they probably had to go to the HBO party.

  74. 74
    sky-blue Says:

    I don’t think she’s with either of them. I’m not sure how current or accurate this is, but it looks like she might still be married to Jonas Armstrong.

    @ladybug: @Canuck: I know on both counts….lol. I am sorry for the foreign post. I have been conversing with some overseas friends this morning in chat room and forgot to write in English again. We were talking about the same subject.
    IMO This was a PR night for TB. She does not look like she is enjoying herself at all. And he has never been known for seeing married women. I think too many people need something to talk about so they spread ideas and see how big they grow. I hope he finds a way to get involved with someone and keep them out of the public eye altogether. He deserves his privacy away from working. But human nature being the beast it is will always hound him and demand to know all the aspects of his life. Every detail of every second anywhere and everywhere he goes. Can you imagine living your life in a giant bubble with every detail on display? Any mistake being hashed and rehashed by thousands of people who don’t know you except for the characters you have played and interviews they have read seen? I know I could not stand up to it. I wonder if any of the haters could?

    ladybug Says:

    @texas swede: It’s also possible that HBO was just ferrying them around and had no intent of starting any rumors. The paps/websites however, especially since the original pics were cropped, may have had every intent of doing so.
    I think I’m reverting to my original impression of the pic, which is similar to yours, is that she looks bored and this is just a duty that she felt she should do.
    Though I do hope their management has informed that per website rumors they’re dating/engaged/secretly married. :)

    As someone who can actually speak and write the language, your claim of being a Swedish speaker is truly ridiculous lady.

    You forgot to write in English. Oh yes, its easy to do that!?! Especially when you come here and see everyone else speaking in English. Do you think people are blind.

    Guys, all you have to do is go on the various gossip sites and they were all talking about how the cast of TB: AS, Sam T, Ryan K, Joe M, and new comer Lucy Griffiths. The only two they mentioned missing was SM and AP, but the rest of the cast and I know I am forgetting alot and crew were all at the Golden Globes HBO Afterparty.

    That is what HBO does they throw their usual GG party, and made sure all the TB cast and crew were there. They also wanted to introduce new cast members.

    Not one site made any mention of any of the dating nonesense. Grow up Stans, men and women can be friends, especially if the guy is like AS and would hate for her to feel left out.

    You Stans keep making up this nonesene, the rest of us well just wait for the new TB season to start and in the mean time just enjoy the photos and videos we get of AS.

    As for Alex’s new “girlfriend”- I’m just picturing KB sitting at home watching those clips over and over, analyzing them like we are…stalkerish rage boiling, searching the web for the girl’s new LA address, eventually cruising by Alex’s place to see if they pulled an all-nighter.

    so let’s get this straight Alex is suppose to be with this girl they went on a date. They both work for HBO how them being there the same time be considered a date. If he had brought her to the other after party with his dad then yeah I would say there is something there. Last year that swedish girl hang with him after they met up at a drink thing and they were said to be together too. I am just saying there is no smoke there, Alex has said numerous time that he doesn’t get to work with some of his cast mate and tehy are on the same show lucy just started so Alex might have been the only cast member she has worked with so that’s why they hang together. There was no reports of them being together or him chatting up a woman or nothing like that from E and a woman that was there they didn’t see him engage in a woman’s company so if they were on a date wouldn’t she be at the bar with him etc. Plus now a days the paps put caption with their pictures that picture of her in the car if there was something ike holding hands or whatever the paps would have seen and said it and made more money for the picture.
    I will wait on them being a couple till I see more pictures or videos of it.

    Kerry duggan Says:

    I agree with Mforman,HBO put on these parties for PR and promotion for the trueblood cast members what was HBO suppose to do leave Lucy out she is part of the cast now, being Lucy new to HW she accompanied Alex and friends which has been taken completely the wrong way by some of his fandom——————————————————————-
    Just because she was seem with Alexander’s friends they are automatically a couple and they were holding hands??? Or it was one big group date. Or it is the start of a romance

    Yes Lucy is a pretty brunette and 25 years old I am sure she gets men’s attention. Alex once said in an interview 3years back he cannot get into a cab with a women without being accused of dating or married.
    Also Alex is a social pet and a nice person probably helping Lucy to net work at these events, considering Alex has been in the business since
    and also no gossip sites or people from inside the events have
    picked up on any couple behaviour from Alex and Lucy

    Sorry for the long post

    ladybug Says:

    @image: That’s what I mentioned in my earlier comment, it’s like Lainey Gossip’s reaction to Alicia VIkander at ComicCon, Lainey was quite convinced that Alex had hooked up with Alicia, despite no evidence. This is what some of the fan sites have done with this, a short grainy video and a cropped photo, and Voila! Alex has a new gf. Except probably not.
    @mforman, this ‘dating’ stuff isn’t from any stans, not from KB’s side. If you look at AS tumblr sites a lot of them went into speculation frenzy at the possibility of Alex having a new gf (and some of them don’t actually care who he dates, they just like watching everyone else work themselves up into a lather). As more info came out: there was a TB party, the cropped out people in the car were with HBO, etc, they’ve calmed down, realizing they probably went a little overboard in their reaction.
    I think we can move on from the ‘gf’ and on to other things, such as what is AB ruining on TB and will AS going underground again now that he’s had some photos taken.

    I know and she was there so, It just goes to show that if you are a man and a woman, you are both friendly to each other you are basically married.
    Well thanks for the information on more details, was there a TB party, was that different from the HBO GG one? Is there a better photos where we can see the others people?
    Either ways until he is walking around in the daytime with that someone or doing grocery shopping I still going to say he is Single.

    mforman Says:

    @#104—ladybug–My main point and I do not think anyone will disagree, is that the Stans just do not think women and men can be friends. Of course we know that HBO wants to kind of stir up the pot, especially since we are all commenting over and over, on how AB is ruining the show.
    Also ladybug, none of us knows how this stuff starts. The only thing we can be sure of is HBO is definitely involved. With them cancelling all the series that they have, they need to make sure their most popular one stays that way. Please do not take everything so literal, as soon as this went viral the stans and KB’s side went into overdrive, because they want to make him look bad anyway they can and what better way then to have him jump on the newest cast member. I mean seriously they are jealous of him and that is just too bad, I mean they only look at his looks not his body of work, boy is that a waste.

    We are all upset about what AB is doing, I can only hope that HBO has a “sit down” with him, AB is totally out of control and needs to realize what not only made the books a hit but also the show and it wasn’t Nazi Werewolf’s.
    @#103—-Kerry duggan—Thank you. At least you understood what I was getting at. The majority of the whole cast went, she could have grabbed anyonoes hand or arm, it was hard to.

    @#101–texas swede—I have always enjoyed your posts, so I hope you will change your mind. I didn’t think I read anything that should have offended Rachel and believe me I truly have been offended by some of the things that some Stans, especially HAHAHA (who is truly a bully), has.
    @#105—image–That was one of the main points I was making, if you are a man and a woman, they refuse to allow you just to be friends. HBO throws them a great party when the season finishes filming and we always get great photos and videos.

    Sorry late to the party.

    I viewed the video
    but Where was Alex holding lucys hand ,The video isn’t clear is there a better one out there at a better angle.
    Are they an item?

    Also if anyone attended the party were they not together once inside there’s no news no new pictures snapped and no inside scoop from fellow party people that’s strange?

    all I read Alex held court at a bar with friends? when he was with Kate it went global at 2010 golden globe there was sooooo many reports….

    hmmmmmmmmm Says:

    @ladybug- I should have added that it probably does’t change a thing either way. I just wanted to clarify that it was not a HBO party since some are very admant here about facts when it comes to all things. But let’s be real, there is going to be speculation especially among his fans no harm in that. Only when it gets to the overtop then I agree it’s obsessive.

I am actually glad that he’s not seemed to have rushed into relationship and is willing to be ‘alone’ for the time being. Perhaps after the last relationship he’s being a little more wary for the time being.

    Straw Dogs: So I watched this the other day. Aside from my AS love, if he does a bad job in a movie, I’ll know and call him out on it. I’m from a small town in the South and my brother used to lead a roofing crew, so I have a good idea of how Alex’s character should have been, and he was kind of awesome in it. Considering that we spend a good bit of time talking about AS’s life, I was really surprised that he could make me forget he was a famous, lovely actor from Sweden. I think that Alex had a good understanding and sympathy for the way a southern person from a tiny town would view things(aside from the gang banging, and shooting). He was the only one. Kate Bosworth(though somewhat likeable in this) has no clue. James Marsden did an awesome job portraying someone who has no clue. And Rod Lurie is (as we’ve always known) a moron. I lived in a county of about 500 ppl, in a city of 15,000, and we in no way “protect our own” to the extent of letting a rapist(or whatever they meant that guy to be) roam free. The movie was entertaining, but in no way (except for AS and JM) quality.

    Rachel() Says:

    @ladybug: I agree. I’m glad he hasn’t been famewh*ring it up, and I’m really glad that he hasn’t(as far as we can tell) been wh*ring around.

    Rachel() Says:

    @ladybug: Yeah, none of it made much sense. Lurie would have needed to highlight the dynamics of the group more to show that they loved AS’s character enough to follow blindly. I don’t think the characters were very believable. I know quite a few uneducated “straw dogs”, but that sure doesn’t mean that large groups of them are willing to rape and murder people to make up for the loss of their glory days.

    ladybug Says:

    @Rachel(): Not even Charlie, they were really following Coach. In November Penn State fired football coach Joe Paterno and students rioted. My friend, a former college football and basketball player tried to explain to me that many, many players (and sometimes fans) view athletic coaches as a parent (even if they have a healthy family dynamic) and that athletes can be very devoted to their coach, even when they shouldn’t be. That’s the only explanation that even made sense to me, they were supporting Coach and then they’d gone to far to go back. But Lurie never really explained anything, it just ‘was’. And it hurt the movie.

  127. 127
    Rachel() Says:

    @ladybug: True. At least this coach didn’t allow the sodomy of young boys to take place for years. They did talk about Alex’s crew being football players, so it’s assumed that the coach was their coach. And he lead them to small town “stardom”, so it makes sense that they would feel a strong sense of loyalty. They highlighted Charlie’s relationship with the coach more. What didn’t make sense was KB’s character not mentioning the rapes. I could see a woman being ashamed or afraid to mention it, but Lurie should have had her do something… I don’t know, I liked Amy a lot better than I thought I would, but I couldn’t empathize with her. I still don’t understand Charlie letting his friend rape her too, or why he wouldn’t let him rape her a second time. Why did he decide to protect her later, but not before? Too many holes in this story, and not enough character development.

    I really don’t think Lucy is married to jonas why was he not with Lucy at the after party.there is nothing out there to support it apart from that one website famous hook ups. How legit and updated is it?

    Ihave no idea what happened in that video whether they were holding hands? Or she grabbed his wrist, or whether the guy in front of her grabbed his wrist. I would not like to think that Alexander would be messing around with someone else’s wife?in public view of cameras.

    Only time will tell if we see any further sightings

  132. 132
    ladybug Says:

    @Not sure: There’s nothing out else out there on the web-not IMBD or Wiki especially-that indicates that Lucy and Jonas Armstrong are in a relationship, never mind married.
    As already mentioned by others Sunday’s outings were most likely professional HBO/TB obligations, and not personal/professional.
    @Rachel(), I didn’t mind KB in this as much as I thought I was going to. The only reason I can think of for her not telling David about the rapes is because she had decided she wanted to go back to LA now and perhaps would tell him later what happened, and that telling him now would perhaps make him want to stay and seek ‘justice’. I’m trying to remember whether Amy told David in the original version. Once again, no character development or explanation. From my recollection the only character that was given even a little more depth/background was Charlie’s and that wasn’t much.

    I knew when I saw a picture of her they were going to hookup/ date whether Alex confirms it and takes her to Sweden remains to be seen.
    I bet we will get sightings over the weekend coachella is coming up maybe he will take Lucy.also I remember a fan pic surfaced with alex where the person was leaning away not to get into there picture fans were trying to decide was it male or female arm could it have been Lucy?

    But since a while I have a bit technological problems already with JJ’s site in general…no idea why.

    So I try it again;
    I’ve said; that I found your word-creation ‘Black Cardigan of Inconspiciousness’ almost as good as ladybug’s ‘Black Beanie of Invisibility’….lol
    And that I thought, it would be may be an good title for an alex-post from JJ with a pic in which he wears perhaps exactly one like this. lol

    I think it’s a bit too much, just to explain it with the emergence of only one legend and then it was spread over the world…

    I could imagine that this would be interesting too for authors who are writing such stories. But like I said, it’s an interesting topic in general.

    @I think they r a couple:
    I don’t think so there is a picture of him this week of in his cardigan and cap wouldn’t she be out on lunch with him. Considering all she got now is TB and it was at lunch time it’s the second time someone seen him there and the first time the lady said she saw Alex at Alove if he was there with company she would say so also this girl too. Women notices other women especially with a hot guy around. He has been back a while now and people have seen him alot since the last two weeks by himself. I am not saying he is celibate (maybe he is) but I am saying if he was with her, he would have taken her to lunch with him or stay in his house and have lunch with her, especially if they are new in the relationship and want to keep it quiet. So I don’t think they are a couple.

    Someone on Twitter posted about an Alex sighting at the Chateau Marmont on Sunday. She said Alex was there with a couple of male friends and an unidentified brunette.

    @I think they r a couple:

    Were you watching the same video as everyone else I did not see any back rubbing, Alex is a touchy, feely guy there are numerous of pics out there.
    And what makes you so certain that Lucy and Alex are a couple?
    As for sightings over the weekend do you have INSIDER knowledge of this.
    And your going just a little bit far in the future with Lucy going to the music festival and his home country of Sweden.
    And that fan picture that arm could be anybody for all we know. Why does it have to be Lucy all of a sudden? I would lean away if I did not want my face in a fan pic and then plastered all over the net, bravo to the
    person for leaning away it’s a fan picture with alex not his pals.

    I thought this Lucy and Alex dating debate was done and dusted until we
    see further evidence so far ZERO based on 1 car picture and some video

    image Says:

    Well we all know that now there is a video and photos. Why?! She was hanging with them because they are fun, they are swedish they know how to have a good time. Plus the same could be said about the swedish girl at comic con that hang with Alex and his other male friends that night and they even pick up more females along the way, obviously this was not that kind of party. It was more networking and Alex name probably got her into more parties than if she went by herself.

  143. 143
    Kerry duggan Says:


    I total agree with all your comments, by now there would have been reports coming out and more outings of them if anything more happened between them,
    and lucy is an unknown actress with alex she gets exposure and more contacts in the industry
    I think thats why he takes is swedish pals to help them to network he is a very nice friend to do that
    and I think the Swedish girl your referring to is Alicia vikander she worked with his brother bill.

    Yes, he is great to his friends and even his country he talks about them and his family alot and he brings his struggling friends along because he knows they would get talked about too. I pretty sure Lucy name got alot of hits this week from fans and other people so he does help with people profile.

Maybe they are trying to get to know each other to make the Brother/Sister dynamic more believable. Maybe they are madly in lust with each other. I don’t care!!!!!!!!! I just want his performance to keep growing.

    Now can we just talk bout him?

    Well I am so surprised that millions of paps did not happen to get one shot of Lucy and Alex holding hands were there cameras broke That would have made a just jared post and hit all gossip sites by now
    And no other fan on the street seen it?
    And there must have been how many people at the party or waiting outside the marmont and just didn’t happen to see anything they must have had there eyes covered,lol yeah it would have been reported by now it would have gone national.Maybe they hooked up , shagging, hanging out whatever.

    So here is are photos from the night with his dad. He was trying to make his way through the crowd. Notice the one with his watch on it is behind him, he is trying to brush into people. I saw the video he was probably doing the same thing and the girl grab hold of him because she and Fares stopped. The only person that touched his back was Fares his rubbed his back in the beginning. To be honest all this is going no where if there is something you will see it people let it go. I going to say they are NOT on, I have not seen or heard anything to prove this and he has been out this week which seems by himself. We shall see in coming months what is what.

    @bS: Those are the pics from Friday, the troll is talking about the Sunday parties, where apparently there’s just oodles of pics of Alex and Lucy that amazingly haven’t been posted yet., 4 days after the events.

    GET A F'ING GRIP Says:

    I went to lunch with 3 guys from lunch today and at one point or another we all touched each others back. I took more than on of thems arms more than once. OMG I must be having a fling with all 3. I hope no one got a pic to prove it.
    Here in Georgia we call it manners. The guys even pulled my chair out for me. Gentlemen assist ladies by offering their arm or hand to you whether you are dating or not. Putting your hand to someones back is a polite way of letting them know you need to tell them something in a noisy place.
    I have looked at the picture and video and see no look of being smitten on either face. In the car pictures I see a woman who is not happy and not at all involved with the company she is with. Let it go. When you have proof then bring it up for discussion until then lets keep talking about truth. Like how wonderfully handsome and talented Alex is. And about the plethora of movies and season 5 we have to look forward too.

    I don’t get why people are still arguing about this. There’s no evidence that has surfaced other than a short video which is unclear, and a couple of photos that were obviously cropped. Until we get more evidence it’s all speculation. Even if he is with her, it’s not a big deal. She’s a million times better than the former option, and if he’s not well then that’s that.

    @GET A F’ING GRIP: The airplane part is from the book: “I’m going to run through that field that field waving my arms like an airplane” (pg278). Though they added the ballerina stuff in the series, not mentioned in the book. And in the book Colbert keeps his t-shirt on. Have to wonder what led to decision for them to have the shirt off in the series? Make up artists wanted another shot to show off their recreation of Colbert’s tat? Just another opportunity to ogle Alex’s pecs?
    Of course this is my favorite scene and it’s not in the book either:

    That tat is spectacular. I admire Colbert just for being able to sit for it. I have some ink myself and I could never make it through all that even it it was done in several settings. I love Alex’s leg tattoo and the story behind it also.

    It has taken part of this blog nearly two days to recover after the Golden Globes.
    Hard to really explain why. It was not harder than previous years. Would benice if it was the madness of the steps on the dance floor to do. But the hard truth declared safe development more with age than with after the partysupported the same time, stiff gin-tonics.
    One thirty, eleven hours after the initial walk the red carpet outside theBeverly Hilton, we set point.
    Yet it was nothing against diehard partying like Alexander Skarsgard andFares Fares.
    They went to the CAA party at Sunset Tower and rounded off at Chateau Marmont after four o’clock on Monday morning.
    from swedish delish

    This just proves that if he was partying so hard and drunk he would have been touchie with Lucy. It would have been report even if they don’t know her name, it happens most of the time when Alex is drunk so get free and touchie. This sounds like too Single guys partying hard more prove that Him and Her are just co stars nothing more.

    @GET A F’ING GRIP, i’d read the first article in the series (linked on a blog by a friend who’s definitely not a ‘thank you vote Republican’ type of Marine) and then forgot about. Finally read it 2009 after Alex became better known and they kept mentioning GK. And watched the miniseries. The miniseries is actually very faithful to the book, but a lot of the backstory and nuances are left out, though if you listen to the commentary some of that gets filled in.

    I have no idea if she is a good drinker or heavy partier because we know

    ladybug Says:

    @Carona: Why won’t he say who’s dating? Well, he might not be dating anyone. He doesn’t strike me as the type as someone who ‘needs’ to be in a relationship. And with his experiences with paparazzi during the last relationship weren’t very good so I wouldn’t be surprised that even if he starts dating someone that the relationship would be much more low key than the previous one. And he’s stated numerous times he doesn’t like the paps period, girlfriend or no girlfriend. I don’t think he’s become a hermit, I do think he’s going out of his way to find places that they don’t frequent.

They broke for a while but then get back together. Now idk how long and if they are together anymore, but they did marry and they were together at least back to this summer.

  186. 186
    Bubu Says:

    There’s nothing about it. Just speculation because of two edited photos.
    There were like 10 tweets from people at GG party and even the other party telling how Alex was chatting with his friend or drinking next to Clive Owen. Nothing about him chatting with a particular wman, just a normal guy having fun with his friends.

  187. 187
    ladybug Says:

    @Fan: or maybe it was pointed out that there was no other site with that information and therefore their information might be wrong? It might not gotten noticed until the pics from Sunday came out and people started searching the web for information on Lucy. And if you search Lucy Griffiths married or Lucy Griffiths dating that site was near the top of the search results. At which point someone probably also did further research, found nothing about her dating life and got the site’s information changed.
    Not a coverup, but the way sites like that (including Wikipedia) work.

    paps so I am left to wonder why is JJ holding those pics back LOL rolls
    Maybe they just don’t exist

    And Just like the Swedish report came out Alex was still partying until 4am monday morning with his friends what a way to get to know your

    ladybug Says:

    @Carona: As I mentioned before, no one was probably paying attention to that site before this week. And now someone has perhaps corrected what was incorrect information. Bubu mentioned that a couple of fan forums say that Lucy and Jonas were/are married. But that’s it. I see nothing else out there. If some one wants to link to a more reliable source that Lucy and Jonas have been/are a couple, please feel free to do so.
    Some commenters appear to be making the following presumptions: That Lucy and Alex are a couple. That Lucy is married to her Robin Hood costar. Therefore, to hide this fact, someone has created an account at this website and changed her relationship status, so Alex doesn’t appear to be involved with a married women.
    All of this presumes facts not in evidence.
    I’m going with what to me is the simplest theory: Those photos of Alex and Lucy created a small internet frenzy. And in all those little blog/tumblr gossip site comments came the notion that she and Jonas are in some sort of relationship. it came from that site showing up in searches. Someone not being able to find any corroborating evidence for that updated the site.
    Updating the information on a webpage shouldn’t be be conspiracy theory fodder.

    uhh….now we are at this it is a ‘relationship’ point already again…first it was called a supposedly (and in my book very unlikely) ‘date’ – now it is supposedly a ‘relationship’ already….uhh…people calm down please.

    As far as we know now, was NOTHING uncommon at this party or later too.
    At this point we can suppose that the whole ‘thing’ was only professional related. Ok, may be they had an funny evening there anyway – all of them, so what?? No one claims that you can’t have a bit fun and can’t enjoy the evening at a more likely professional appointment either. I’m sorry, but up to now there are very obviously no signs for it which could justify to speculate about ‘datings’ or even ‘relationship’.

    Also at this point it doesn’t matter whether this woman – lucy- now is actually married or not or even whether she ever was married or wasn’t. At least it shouldn’t be a point. Anyway, not now.

    I wonder why so much people so apparently strongly wishing that there was happened anything unusual; yeah even something ‘immoral’ and also discussable of him?? May be a small piece of sensation greed??
    It has something of bring about things and to blow up small, harmless things to something big and also to have a “topic” where actually is nothing at now.

    I think we should let it go now and give him a break, I mean he surely just wish to do what single people ever do – go out and having a bit fun with friends/aquaintances of both sexes, enjoy his free-time etc. and – wish to have a small piece of privacy. I think this should be quite understandable.

    I’ve always loved men in cardigans like that. It’s some kind of sexy professor type look. I still think he keeps his European flare, but it’s understated. I always find it funny how some people think just because he wears slim fitting suit that is a European thing. They wore them in North America in the 50′s, so it’s not something new. I think he looks good in them with him being so tall.

  213. 213
    ladybug Says:

    @GET A F’ING GRIP, his style has improved a lot in the last two years. He’s learned to wear suits that fit (and I suspect that designers might be offering suits to him as well) and his everyday look is simple but attractive. I don’t think he actually spends that much time on how he looks, especially his casual look, but i think he’s got his wardrobe to were he can grab something, throw it on and look fine.

I don’t understand all of these people getting their panties in a twist over “is he, isn’t he” and OMG, someone edited a website.

    IMO, it’s highly likely that this woman’s PR people asked it be updated if it wasn’t correct since a) she’s about to appear in a hit US TV show and b) all of this fuss brought to light the error and her people are looking out for her image.

    They do have the same manager, so it makes sense they would go to some parties together as they both work for the same show. Like I said, I don’t see what the big deal is at all. I want him to be happy either way, and with the other one, he didn’t look happy….at all. That was my biggest problem with her. She sucked the life out of him.

    It’s true, the yuku posters do seem to want to hook them up. They talk about him in Silverlake all the time in relation to her. They also seem to be obsessed with him being a “hipster” and point out bar locations and whatnot all the time. Of course Silverlake is a big “hispter” place, so they’re all happy he’s there. *eyeroll*

    @Cafélady: I think they should use the bunny slippers for his next big magazine photo shoot. They always have brooding. Which is fine, but there’s a goofy side to him, why not show it They should probably Bunnicula slippers to keep with the true blood theme.

    that before he hit TB big with all the attention, he was in LA for a while and some of his earlier interviews mentioned SilverLake hangouts. He is no a babe out of the woods. The man hangs out and about.

    @youdoknow: And if my memory of LA geography is correct Silver Lake isn’t that far from the Hollywood Hills (at least not by LA standards) so it wouldn’t be strange for him to be there.

    Here is a new question for discussion. Did anyone else notice in the trailer for BATTLESHIP that the bombs fired by the aliens that imbed themselves in the side of the ship look like the pegs in the original Hasbro game? I found that kind of funny.

    ladybug Says:

    @GET A F’ING GRIP: I want to know when we’re going to hear about what’s going on with The Vanguard. Is it still on for filming this year? And are we going to see any stills from the East anytime soon?

  236. 236
    Macy Says:

    I’m sure they had to do something in order to get those rights. How much screen time do you think he’ll have? We know he dies, but at which point…midway, first quarter?

    I’d love to see some still from The East. Do you think they’ll have made him super granola? I think Vanguard won’t start filming this year, maybe next year. It’s still listed on his IMDb page is it not?

    @ladybug: #229
    …hmm…I must admit I didn’t knew these books before…(no surprise I think, if one has no kid’s)…but after reading some reviews, it sounds funny…lol…I try to imagine this what you’ve said with the TB-theme…lol..somehow it’s..fitting lol

    Funny idea what you’ve said for the next magazine shoot…not too serious and more showing his funny side this time…lol…I could imagine that he would have enough humor to do even something like that – with bunny slippers or something…lol

    This I would like to know too, with the ‘Vanguard’-thing and when they will start filming and so on. Could one hear something about the main cast (aside of alex) yet? Or the possible director?

    The East shooting was finished last summer….so I would suppose that we must wait a bit longer for any news in this case. I have no idea how long a postproduction time is in general…

    Canuck Says:

    @ladybug: @Camille: Ladybug, you’re on a roll these days! Lol
    Camille: I know. It’s not as if his fans (or at least those on this board) want him to remain single. He’s obviously a family kind of guy. Hopefully he’ll have one of his own some day, and if not, that too will be by choice.

    As for Battleship, I think that HASBRO is actually listed as one of the film Producers, so it’s possible they actually invested in it. He dies before the end? Sucks, not going to see it then since he’d be the only reason to do so.

  239. 239
    ladybug Says:

    @Macy: Per SkarsgardNews The Vanguard is still a go, they’re probably still working on a script and all that fun preproduction stuff like financing.
    The East finished filming in early December, but I suspect it won’t be out until fall. I suspect that’ll also be when Disconnect and WMK are released.
    With the Bunnicula slippers, if I actually knew how to knit or crochet I’d knit a pair for each of the actors who play vamps on the show. And actually mail them in to HBO.

    We finally get a new AS post in which he looks absolutely gorgeous and amazing, the man can wear anything with that smile and some of you guys go off because he goes out with one of his co stars, but she wasn’t the only one there, pretty much all the cast was there except for AP and SM, they all hung together, even Joe M, who usually just likes to stay buy himself to get attention (sorry, I really do not like Joe M, seems very into himself).
    They all had a good time at the first of the many award show after parties that are going to be coming back, and I bet they have all been working hard and looked forward to a night of fun. That is why he was spotted with just his pals at the Chateu until Monday at 4 am, good for him, he deserves to kick back after how hard he worked this entire summer, and will be working for the next few months on TB.
    Let us just enjoy these wonderful photos of him and be glad JJ, isn’t us make three months for a new post.
    I for one have truly missed seeing him and reading your posts.

  241. 241
    Cafélady Says:

    oh…I’m sorry, because the wrong shooting finish of ‘the east’ I’ve mentioned, apparently I’ve got it mixed up with the shooting end-time of WMK – sorry, my mistake.
    As you’ve wrote the east-filming ended in early December, so it will surely took still more time until we can see something of it (even stills etc.).

    Because the Bunnicula-slippers; I guess if you could do that (knitting them or something) it would be surely funny to see the result…lol…I would like to see the faces of the HBO-people and the vamp-actors on the show if they would see them…lol
    Unfortunately I couldn’t do something like this either…I’m able to do knitting, even crochet too a bit, but not very well…:(
    Means, I’ve learned it once, but only the basics – no ability for such work of art. lol

    As for Battleship, I’ve never played the HASBRO-game – so I can’t say that much about it or any possible product placement strategy in the movie. I fear probably I even wouldn’t notice it…

  242. 242
    Cafélady Says:

    I’m as glad as everyone else of his fans here, to have a new post of him.
    And I’m sorry if someone possibly is thinking now that my last post about this whole after-party-thing was a piece too harsh. …I found it just a bit disturbing in the end, that as soon as he goes out with a group of people and of course in company with women too (doesn’t matter if only one or more in the group) and having nothing more than 1 harmless (and obviously still edited too) pap-pic and a typical, but anyhow harmless pap-vid the speculating machine starts promptly very, very wild…
    Sure something like this party-vid is ever an invite to speculate about his friends, the event and so on, so speculating is one thing, but I just found only at that time THIS sort of speculating (at least how it was to the end of it) was a bit too early and a bit unfair to him…that’s all. Just to explain it…

    Of course you are right, he looked absolutely gorgeous here. It was nice to see that he obviously was in a very good mood – at least it seems like it. And of course he deserved one evening with a bit fun with castmates and friends. Even if one of these partys were may be more semi-professional.
    Like you’ve said, very probably they had all a good time and this is great.

    Macy Says:

    Whoops sorry for spoiling that for you. I thought that was common knowledge.

    Camille Says:

    Wow I’m being moderated for saying that I hope he’s happy no matter who he is with, and that he didn’t seem happy with his now ex, which was what I had an issue with? Gee, big news I guess.

    Also, I was saying that I’d better go pick out a nice dress if we’re all getting married. And to Macy, that I hoped at least one of his films makes it to a festival. Hopefully he’ll get back to TIFF or finally get to go to Cannes for something.

    mforman Says:

    @#242—-Cafelady—-I am sorry if you thought I meant you, but truly I did not. There were quite a number of people that posted, that just went completely off the reservation. You just mentioned the same thing that I had said that because he goes out in a group and being his fans we all know he has friends of both sexes, that it did not mean there was or is any type of relastionship aside from friendship and or professional.
    Also I agree, that we have and never will see the few unedited photos or the unedited video, what still makes me question a lot of this is just one video and a handful of photos, it just seems so set up and we know he wouldn’t do it, I hope that HBO isn’t going to start playing games. We all know his and now we find out her manager likes to play games, so who knows. But once again, you are right it was truly unfair to him and way too soon for even slight speculation, but it really did get out of hand so quick.
    I have always enjoyed all your posts, you have never said anything that could not be backed up, and was always well meant towards AS.
    I just like to talk about him on his posts and how he looks better and better each time we see him, I really cannot wait until his new films start getting released.

    We’re all being repressed!
    I also hope that at least one of the movies is festival worthy. I’m presuming that he’ll do some promotion for Battleship in May. And with TB one month after that, perhaps we’ll see some more magazine covers starting in April. Wasn’t there a tweet back in November about him having done a Marc Jacobs shoot? Perhaps if true we’ll see that soon.

    That was most of my comment, about his movies and festivals. I don’t get why that would be moderated since you’re talking about someone’s work and not in a negative way. JJ lets all kinds of asinine posts attacking others through and then moderates ones that have normal conversation in them. I think he must have done something, you’re right. I think I remember that tweet about the Marc Jacobs shoot. Hopefully something will come out.

    Who else as in actors, actress’s does Alexander’s manager manage? Also hope his manager isn’t going to start playing silly games as in getting Alex hooked up with another co-star, to raise that persons profile, Alex is doing so well without all the drama in his life and PR stunts, I don’t think as a fan I can go all through it again?

    @mforman: #246
    Thanks, for your friendly words. Yes, it’s quite transparent with these edited pics and vid. May be with the thought to let rise interest for her name and for her as the new castmember (through the manager or hbo people or whatever), possible…and as one can see apparently it works yet…
    I guess I should have sometimes a bit more patience and I know some people love to speculate about every step he is doing in public. But sometimes…it becomes just a bit too bizarre etc….but ok, enough of it.

    Yes, I like to talk about him on his posts too (obviously) lol…you’re right; from what I could see of his work up to now he becomes better and better as actor. I truly hope he will get more interesting roles in the future. And it seems as with a lot of the next upcoming projects of him, we will see exactly this.

    I wonder if he want to work in sweden or in europe in general again in the future, like for ‘puss’ then…probably a question of the quality of the role-offers he get, I think.

    well…for now it will do it, that I can finally see s4 (since 9.Feb.)…was long enough to wait for it again…

  255. 255
    ladybug Says:

    @Cafélady: I think he’ll film where ever the role is, whether that be Sweden or Thailand or Cleveland.
    I think he enjoys the opportunities to film in various locales and doesn’t hide out in his trailer/hotel room ordering room service.
    I’d be interested in seeing whether he stays based in LA after TB. I know it’s the primary place to be for actors but he strikes me as more of a NYC type of person, should he stay in the States.
    Slightly OT, my library has uploaded the record for Melancholia to their online catalog (It’s not release here until March 13). There are already 186 requests for it. Pretty impressive for a little art house type movie that’s only made 2.9 million here in the States.
    I was sad to see that Melancholia didn’t get a few noms, either for Kirsten, or even for cinematography or sound editing.

  256. 256
    mforman Says:

    @#255–ladybug—I think that after TB ends he will stay in LA, with going to NY alot. Let us not forget that alot of his friends live in LA, people that he has stated he considers his American family, I do not think he would want to leave permantley. Like you said I think he likes to travel and go to the various places where his roles will be.
    Also, no matter how you look at it LA is really the heart of his business, it is where the scripts are and all the meetings are, but I can see him being the type to go to NY each weekend, especially in the summer. Also going back to Sweden, if a role caught his eye.
    I too was very upset that Kristen D didn’t get a nomination, I am sorry but she really did deserve at least the nod, she carried the whole film and was just exceptional. When I was watching E News tonight, they said that, that was being whispered around HW as a big snub.
    @Cafelady—-It is always a pleasure to talk to you through these posts. I am dying for HBO to repeat season 4, where did you hear about them starting to show it again on Feb 9th. Just really curious, thanks.

  257. 257
    Macy Says:

    I don`t think he`ll stay in LA after TB ends. He`s said numerous times that he is only there because he has a regular job and doesn`t think he`ll make that his base once that is over. He said that with all the ways to communicate now it isn`t necessary to live in LA and act, and he sites his dad as an example. I think he`ll either go back to Sweden or like ladybug said, move to NYC.

  258. 258
    Camille Says:

    Does it count if my grandpa was a Geordie? LOL! I think I might have the in there already.

    I think he’ll go elsewhere after TB ends, though he may stay in the US, but he misses Sweden an awful lot so I wouldn’t be surprised if he went there. I wish Melancholia was on demand here, but I haven’t found it so far. Sucks that it didn’t get any nominations, but it did for those Danish awards. I hope Alex goes to some pre-Oscar parties though, it’s a good chance to network.

  259. 259
    mforman Says:

    Maybe he will go back home, I guess I can dream, but if he did move to NYC, then I could just take the train into the city and find him.
    No, I am not a crazy stalker, I am the one that would probably see him and just keep walking away, and then curse at myself later for at least not gretting a picture.
    I would love it if they came up with a sequel that featured Eric, Pam, Godric,etc., A fan can only hope.

    Cafélady Says:

    @ladybug: #255
    I suppose you’re very right, for him it’s probably no question where he is filming the next projects. I think too, that the deciding factor possibly is how much interest will a new role/project arouse to him. If I remember right, then he hinted something like this in an earlier interview.

    But I thought anyhow more on it, whether he would be interested to make an german/european production (like mads mikkelsen for instance) in general for the future too. German movies for instance mostly haven’t an big international audience, at least not like HW-productions. So for an actor who want to work in projects with an widely spectrum of audience, not necessarily the first choice. And sweden needs no explanation of course (as job place).

    That’s actually an interesting question where he will have his base in the future. But unfortunately I can’t exactly agree with you here. Sure, HW will be very probably an important professional place for him furthermore after TB, I think. But I doubt that it will be his base in general. I could imagine that he then would spend more time in NYC if he has the possibility – like you said, especially professional related, but personal I’ve got more the impression that sweden will be his home(base) further, if one consider earlier interviews of him.

    186 requests – that’s actually pretty impressive, right. Melancholia will not be released here in germany before May 2012 (*sigh*). I’m still a bit annoyed about it that I couldn’t see it in the theater…

    @mforman: #256
    Thanks, again. I enjoy to talk with you through these posts too. So the feeling is mutual.
    I’m sorry that I’ve caused this confusion, but I forgot to mention that I meant in germany. Again, I’m sorry. We still hadn’t the pleasure to watch s4 here up to now (bc the stupid dubbing…*sigh*) – but like I said since Feb. 9th we will have the season-premiere on our pay-tv. Exactly for that reason I’m that much impatient. lol

  267. 267
    mforman Says:

    @Cafelady—Please stop and never feel the need to say “sorry.” I was just wondering about the date, because I am being greedy and want to see S4 again.
    You will really enjoy Melancholia when you get the chance to see it, it is one of those rare movies where everything and everyone seemed to fall into place.
    It is going to keep bugging me that KD did not receive an Oscar nod for her performance, she truly was that good.

    @mforman: #267
    Ok. :)
    Hopefully you will see s4 again soon – at least I could imagine that an repeat would make sense for hbo and the audience before they will have season premiere of s5 then…

    I’m convinced of it that you’re right with what you have said about Melancholia – of course I plan to watch it as soon as I can buy/rent it.

    Whether KD deserves an Oscar nomination for her portrayal or not – about this I can’t say that much (understandably) as long as I haven’t seen her in her role. But I could imagine that she was as well as you’ve said. At least is one consider the lot of praise which the movie and the actors received in general.

    But this whole thing with any award nominations is an thing for it’s own anyway, I think.
    I mean, Rooney Mara for instance received an nomination for ‘the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ now – well…not that she didn’t played well ‘Lisbeth’ – but compared with Rapace (‘lisbeth’ in the swedish original) I would say Rapace was at least as good as her. I saw both movies (original and Fincher’s version) and personal I think both actresses did an excellent job – but for me personal Rapace was a little more authentic. It was just an different interpretation (of both).

    Nice pic. :)
    Apparently he is in the mood to give us fans a few new pics of him again, at least no sign for the ‘Magic Beanie of Invisibility’ up to now…lol
    You’ve stolen the idea?? lol well…up to now I find your ‘stolen goods’ interesting…;) lol

  271. 271
    mforman Says:

    @#270—Cafelady–IMO Rapace did a much better job of protraying Lisbeth, there was just something about her whole demeanor, it is like she caught what the character was and wouldn’t let it go, and amazingly she got better with each film.
    I am sorry but I do not think Rooney Mara deserved a nomination for how to carried off the character of Lisbeth, it was more shock value, than quality.

    Cafélady Says:

    well…I just wanted to say that these award-nomination thing isn’t always easy to comprehend (who and why)…and with this exampel of Mara’s nomination I would say, that if Mara has deserved an nomination (at least according to the opinion of the academy) then Rapace really did deserved an nomination too. May be even more than Mara – in direct comparison.

    It’s a bit tricky for me to express what I like to say (as non native speaker)…also: I try always to recognize the work an actor had with his/her role and the effort they give for it, if one can see that this really was the case.
    So I’ve tried to be fair to Mara and I would say the job she made wasn’t worse, of course not. But Rapace was just more authentic as ‘Lisbeth’.
    And there was many more on the movie which disturbed me a bit compared to the original, but I know it’s too OT.
    Only one yet: Stellan as ‘Martin Vanger’ was just fabulous.

    I’m a bit surprised anyway, that you know the originals. I mean, the US-TV/theater-market hasn’t a great interest on foreign movies in general – at least not as much as for the own HW-productions, I guess.

    The quote is a bit older already, but every time if I read it I must smile again. It’s nice to see that his father and he apparently have a good relationship. And obviously has his father a great sense of humor too. Good imaginable why alex is this down-to-earth type.

    @Cafélady: As much as I liked Rapace’s version of Lisbeth, the 2010 actress field was pretty crowded. And the movies themselves, I liked them but there was room for improvement. I won’t be able to see the new version until it comes out, so I’ll reserve judgment on who was ‘better’, or if one can even say ‘better’, instead preferred interpretation.
    I know I’m interested in seeing Stellan’s take on Martin Vanger. I’d wanted him to play Holger, because I like Holger, but Stellan does play nasty very well.

    @#278—ladybug—Stellan was made to play Martin, he was just amazing and you definitely will not be disappointed. I am sorry but I will always go with Rapace as Lisbeth, sometimes an actress plays a role that you feel was written for her and this was such a role.
    @#279—POGO—As I wrote above to ladybug, Rapace is Lisbeth, I also own all three. Sorry to be such a dirty girl, but the man (and we all know who we are talking about) looks good in a suit, in jeans and a cardigan, he just looks good.
    @#280–Potstirrer—Why do you have to come on and start some ridiculous rumor. All of the Skarsgard children look alike, aside from hair color, really what a childish thing to even post about.

    @ladybug: #278
    well…even if the actress field is crowded for any of the important award competitions…sometimes it can be a bit difficult to understand why someone receive an nomination and others don’t – like the example mforman has mentioned; Kirsten Dunst. She was (from what I’ve heard) very good in Melancholia but she wouldn’t nominated – what it is something what obviously a few people don’t found comprehensible.

    I guess, the decision whether an actor deserves a nomination more than an other or not is in the end mostly very personal and depends on a lot of things (personal preferences for an certain actor/actress, personal feeling to his/her sort of acting etc.).
    Like you said, often it is an question of different interpretation and not to be ‘better’ or not (aside of some exceptions – we all know actors who played once wooden and implausible already)

    I’m sorry, but what do you mean with Stellan playing ‘Holger’?? As far as I know, there is no ‘Holger’ in both movies (2009/2011 versions) or did I missed something?? lol

    @POGO: #279
    Of course, he looks good in a suit. But…I fear the most other woman would find this a bit uncommon, but personal I like it more if he can wear his casual clothes…I have no idea why, but it’s just like it is…
    lol…and I admit, for this I get often enough blankly looks…lol

    @Cafélady: Holger Palmgren, Lisbeth’s guardian for awhile and one of the few people in her childhood/teen years who tried to support her. Much bigger role in books than in the movies.
    The whole awards thing is usually popularity to some extent, though they can get it correct sometimes.
    It’s also highly unlikely that Mara’s going to win anyway. And this is hardly the most egregious snub that Oscar has done.

    I have no idea what happened in the video around 0.26 min, hand holding, arm grabbing who knows, you need to go back through the Pages these were posted with links.
    A Swedish report came out Alex was partying till 4am Monday morning with pal fares fares so far no mention of Lucy or mystery brunette lady, they would have mentioned brunette lady even if they did not know her other reports have came out.
    1 – 2 weeks later Tweet pic of Alex at red lion tavern. Tweeters were trying to find out who he was with if it was lucy, Yes very scary tweeting that person, he was with a group of pals have no idea if Lucy was there or included as pal.

    Tweet pic came out of Alex and that Steve newlin guy from Tb partying
    don’t know if Lucy was there and alex sighting in mammoth lakes have no idea if he was with Lucy
    and pals

    So no I have no idea if he is dating Lucy or seeing someone else, frankly anything is an upgrade from boswh*re the topic of Alex and Lucy has been debated so many times since that party video and car picture there is NOTHING out there to support anything. Unless someone has anything

    @ladybug: #287
    oops…sorry, I fear I haven’t payed enough attention on it! Of course, her guardian…well…that role was really a bit small, I think – in both movies.
    And unfortunately I have to admit, that I haven’t read the books.
    First I was only interested for the (swedish) movie as I has read the summary on the back of the dvd – and that I could see it with the original swedish voices. And -of course- that the movies were a film adaptation of very successful books (in europe).

    …the oscars & etc. ….well…like I said, it’s often one thing for themselves…

    WMK it’s a similar thing to me, I mean I don’t know the book – but from what can be seen of the summary I would say it’s an interesting story.

    as for the new fan-pic: well…it says it would be from the TB-set…may be during a shooting-break or before/after his work?
    He looks good in it – I like it if he wear this three-day stubble…lol

    ladybug Says:

    @Cafélady: Read the books if you can. There’s a lot of stuff in the books that just is hard to translate to the screen, such as the hacking. That and a lot of entertaining stuff/characters had to be left out for time reasons, but it adds to the books. IMHO.
    It’s another reason I’m interested in seeing how Mara plays Lisbeth, because there are different approaches while still ‘getting’ book Lisbeth.
    I admit to not having read WMK yet, either. I did get it from the library, but never got around to it.

    As for the pic, he’s got some makeup (eye) so I suspect before shooting or during breaks.

    Cafélady Says:

    I believe you, that the story was more detailed in the books. That’s mostly the problem with film adaptations – there isn’t enough time to tell all aspects of the book-story, first and second; everyone who read the books has an own idea of the protagonists. Of course it’s impossible to hit the individual idea of everyone.
    Obviously it’s an quite similar thing with the sookie-novels and TB.

    May be I can read them (Millenium-trilogy) sometime, up to now I still have too many other books that are waiting to be read.

    As for the ‘Guldbagge’-pics: yes the SkarsSons (lol…nice word-creation ;)) obviously do wear suits well too.
    They look both very good in it.
    I wonder when they will work all together again in a movie…and this time may be with alex too…would be great, I think.

    well… to be honest, I haven’t noticed the thing with the shirt on or not…I guess, I should be a little more attentive…lol

    “It wouldn’t surprise me if she appears as some crazy Eric Northman sex dream at some point in season five,” she laughs. “I wouldn’t put that past Alan Ball at all. I can deal with. If Alex Skarsgard has to eat my neck for another season I can deal with it. We’ll see what happens. I have no idea; obviously they don’t stay rigid to the books.”

  305. 305
    Cafélady Says:

    well…I fear at this point we (the book-fans) shouldn’t expect anymore that they would follow the ‘red thread’ of the books in the future seasons more exactly – at least I’ve started in s3 already to accept this step by step. And anyhow, it would be a bit too late to follow the ‘thread’ more exactly now – I think, they’ve changed to much already.

    And when I was finished at this point, I could even more enjoy the single episodes.
    Of course I don’t liked all changes they’ve made compared to the books – but I admit, somehow I’m looking forward again for s5…lol

    As for Claudine;…a sex dream for eric?? hmm…I don’t know…I think, somehow she is right, at this point it wouldn’t be a surprise now – at least no longer. One could find this quite ambiguous (her statement)…in that sense whether it would be good or bad to the story…

  306. 306
    ladybug Says:

    @Cafélady: I took her statement as an indication that she really liked working with Alex, even though they probably didn’t spend much time on set together.

    I finally learned to separate book from series and just criticize/like each on their own merits. So other than what will probably be more a of a focus on Alcide than we’ve seen before, I have no idea what’s going to happen.

    @Canuck: Bret’s follow-up tweet was nice though:
    BretEastonEllis Bret Easton Ellis But Alexander is so vulnerable and touching and aching in Melancholia—his best performance—that I feel real good about the earlier tweet.
    However, his one from almost two weeks ago was a little weird:
    Does Alex know that the man who wrote American Psycho is tweeting about him? Kind of weird.
    There must be some awareness that people in that gym-celebrity and non-celebrity-tweet about being there with him. Maintaining ‘normal’ behavior is good and all, but at what point does it get to where you start thinking about building your own exercise room and hiring a personal trainer, just to avoid the staring?

  314. 314
    Canuck Says:

    @ladybug: Ellis is giving off slightly stalkerish vibes to me. ASkars should be able to go to the gym, work out, have a shower and get changed without a one hit wonder author tweeting about seeing him naked a lot. Yeah, it wouldn’t take much of that sort of invasion of privacy for just about anyone to consider setting up their own home gym, assuming you’ve got the space for it. Is Ellis gay?

  315. 315
    ladybug Says:

    @Canuck: Per Wiki:
    When asked an interview in 2002 whether or not he was gay, Ellis explained that he does not identify himself as gay or straight. He explained that he is comfortable to be thought of as gay, bisexual or heterosexual and that he enjoys playing with his persona
    His tweets about Alex do sound a little creepy, though BEE probably doesn’t perceive it as that way. And I take the first tweet (not needing to see TB) as more as a joke. It’s the last one that’s a little weird.

    Camille Says:

    Well, Kitsch has already started doing promo so hopefully Alex will join him soon. It’s more Taylor’s movie, but I do hope we’ll see a bit of him soon.
    As for the hockey game, I’m thinking someone gave him the jersey to put on because he doesn’t have it when he’s in the stands. I think he was probably a guest of Mats.

  322. 322
    ladybug Says:

    @Camille: I’m hoping that he’ll doing some promo! He’s so into undercover mode maybe he’ll not want to stop!. But after Battleship opens then about 6 weeks later TB premieres, he’ll have to come out for that.
    I have to reiterate how impressed I am that not only is he not getting papped we’re not even getting that many fan pics. And he’s not hiding out in his house.

  323. 323
    Cafélady Says:

    Obviously he is very skilled in it to go undercover! And -we discovered this earlier already- obviously he decides about himself now who will know his schedule and who not.

    As for the missed fan-pics; I think, sometimes it might not be the right moment or the right place to ask him to make a pic – plus; not everyone has the courage to go to him if there is possibly a group of people/friends around him and then ask anything like this…even then if one knows that he very probably wouldn’t have any problem with it…and I guess too, not everyone who has seen him anywhere recently feels always forced to share this on twitter etc. – ok, may be not very likely nowadays….

    …and/or may be he visit now more often places which are possibly more closed society or something – also places (or clubs for instance) with an VIP-area or that stuff. But I admit, this wouldn’t really sound like him – apart of the situations like the hbo-after party and similar things, where he has no choice.

    Alexander Skarsgård på hemmelig Norges-besøk

    Alexander Skarsgard at a secret visit to Norway

    “True Blood” star in Oslo on Tuesday.
    Recently, Swedish Bill Skarsgård in Oslo in connection with the fact that he is current with the main role in the Norwegian blockbuster “Victoria”.
    Tuesday visited his brother, Hollywood star Alexander Skarsgård Oslo.
    “True Blood” star was observed by several at the Hotel Continental in the capital on Tuesday.

    - I almost fainted when I saw him outside the hotel, a source told “Good evening, Norway”.
    “Good evening Norway» Tuesday has been in contact with several of the largest film production companies in Norway, but none of them know, or want to comment Skarsgård’s visit to Oslo.
    Will not comment
    In 2010 it was announced that Alexander Skarsgard had a role in the Norwegian director Hans Petter Moland’s film “The Elephant”. Skarsgard plays a Norwegian oil workers who have close contact with an American who works at the oil rig. Together, they are central to efforts to gain control of a huge explosion on a drilling rig.
    The film according to IMDB premiere in 2012.
    This is a story of Norway’s path to wealth and how it changed a whole society, the Moland said about the film, according to VG.
    Whether Skarsgård’s visit to Oslo has something to do this film, not a director Hans Petter Moland statements

    - For several reasons I will not comment on this, ‘he said curtly to “Good evening, Norway”.

    Recently it was also known that Moland soon as the screen a new film with the working title “The Prize Idiot,” or “Power Idiot.”

    This is produced by Paradox Film.

    “Good evening, Norway” has been in contact with Paradox on the occasion of Skarsgård’s visit to the capital, but they did not want to neither confirm nor deny whether they know of this visit
    Star in Hollywood
    Alexander Skarsgård is in the process of building up a solid career in Hollywood and is perhaps best known for his role in the vampire series “True Blood”.
    Alexander is the son of well-known Stellan Skarsgard. He also has worked with the Norwegian director Hans Petter Moland, when he played
    in the movie “A very kind man.”
    It is funny in a humane manner. No matter how grotesque and repulsive characters are, I think that the audience cares about them. It heats the
    film in a way. It’s really cool that is, have Stellan Skarsgard said to “Good evening, Norway”.

    @Alex in Norway: “Alexander Skarsgard at a secret visit to Norway”.If he’s really in Norway, it’s not a secret trip anymore!
    @Cafélady, I think it’s a combination of the things you mentioned.

    ladybug Says:

    @Macy: As mentioned in earlier threads, I think his going underground is a combination of personal and professional choice. After the last two years he’s sick of the paps, and is going back to pre S2 and KB ways, before he was famous, and not getting papped, and not even getting fan picced that much.
    He also knows that he’s got Battleship out in April in May, followed shortly by S5 of TB, followed by perhaps 3 movies in the fall. I think he wants to make sure we’re not sick of him by then.
    And yes, lack of a certain someone has helped him with this, much easier to hide in plain sight when no one knows your schedule.

    @ladybug: #325
    It’s surprising for an HW-movie that they start to show ‘Battleship’ in Europe first – but I certainly do not complain about it…lol

    And I think you could be right with what you’ve said about his possible promo-tour for ‘Battleship’ and TB s5.

    @ladybug #332 I think, his decisions he made up to now (including this make himself rare for a while), are well thought by him. I guess, when the promo-time for ‘Battleship’ and TB s5 starts, we will get probably more posts of him again.

  335. 335
    Macy Says:

    Hmm, the way I read that is that the model is gone somewhere and he’s staying in her house and the friend wants to hide in the model’s suitcase so that she can see Alex when the model gets back to her house. Since he was spotted in Norway perhaps he is staying at someone’s house while there. He used to date Sarah Tun, who was a model, so perhaps he has some model friends that he hangs with.

  336. 336
    ladybug Says:

    @Macy: I think that’s what I’m interpreting it as, though the tweet itself doesn’t really make much sense at first read, even if it’s true.
    @Cafélady, I’d have thought that the European release would have been at the same time or just a bit after the US release. I’m sure the studio has their reasons for this.

  337. 337
    Macy Says:

    There is some doubt as to the validity for sure, especially if the person wants us to believe he’s on holiday in Marrakech. I doubt he has much time to take extended holidays right now, seeing as they’re in the middle of filming TB. SN’s site said that Alex’s schedule was pretty full right now with filming, and that’s why he hasn’t gone to many parties lately.

  338. 338
    ladybug Says:

    @Macy: I’m interpreting the tweet as the model is with the Maire Clair fashion person in Marrakesh. Presuming that the tweet is true, is he still in Norway, the article in Norwegian is from Tuesday evening, and the tweet is from 12 hours ago (Wednesday afternoon Marrakesh time). So, is he still in Norway and just left the hotel to avoid being spotted, and is staying in this model’s house while she’s away?
    Or is he still LA, and both article and tweet are incorrect?
    It’s possible that if The Vanguard isn’t happening this summer and The Elephant is still an option and he had a couple of days he decided to kill two birds with one stone and suss out details of the movie and see Bill. He does seem to pile up the frequent flier miles.
    This British film critic/journalist had a phone interview with him yesterday, pity she didn’t ask where he was calling from, she could have clarified things:

    That’s the way I read that tweet as well. Like I said, the model could be a prior friend or a fellow Swede that he knows. I assumed he was in Norway to do some work around a movie or some kind of project and that it was probably a quick trip. I can’t see him going to Norway and then to Marrakesh rather than going to see his family. He goes home every chance he gets.

    Wouldn’t he be likely be doing promo work for Battleship if he had enough time for transatlantic holidays right now?

    Oslo Says:

    the tweet sounds to me like he is staying at a friend. I don’t think that’s his GF if so why would the tweeter want to go back with her to make Alex her BF lol, if the girl was Alex GF. Maybe he left his hotel because he was getting to much attention and he is there for business (secret trip) and he doesn’t want news leaking out about what he is doing there yet.

  342. 342
    ladybug Says:

    @Canuck: That’s sort of what I’m thinking, that if he had time to fly to Oslo for a couple of days he might as well throw in some promo work for Battleship, or TB even, since S4 is starting in some places in Europe right now. Which doesn’t mean he didn’t have couple of days and decided to fly there and then fly right back, and tried to keep it under wraps, not because of some romantic interlude with a model, but because he just wanted to keep the visit quiet.
    I’m presuming his TB schedule for April and May does include time for Battleship promotion.

  343. 343

    Hey folks. Just had to chime in. I read the tweet as though the tweeter is in Marrakesh with the model working and Alex is staying in the model’s empty house in Oslo. She (the tweeter) wants to hide in the models room while the model contacts Alex on Skype on his Ipad so she can see and hear the conversation. And remember he has said his filming schedule is erratic. Sometimes he gets 4 or 5 days in a row off. And on HBO’s site this week they are setting up the sets. So actors may not be needed around there. And Alex did some modeling in Europe himself and has quite a few model friends.

    I think the if he was in Oslo, the model is not. I’m more interested in whether not the visit was also professional, will he have a new movie role? When will we start to see new interviews and photo shoots in promotion of Battleship? What about pics from the new season of TB?

    Working on the TB set sounds so much more interesting than my job:
    We like to keep the crew busy and entertained when they’re working through the night. Set Costumer Sarah Basta’s job for this scene? Lubricating Pam’s latex costume. Just another day at the office…

    I’d thought that too, that he did a bit of modelling. It would make sense then that he has some friends in that industry. That’s also why it could be a more private trip rather than staying at a hotel.

    If he was in Oslo, he’s back in NYC now.
