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.

    @Camille: Ha, true! And if push comes to shove, I’ve got a spare room you can crash in for a few days to qualify ;)

  • A bit late.

    Better late then never but
    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?

  • Rachel()

    I know all the speculation is irritating, but I’m really amused by it. Watching ppl get all frantic b/c Alex is talking to *gasp* a girl. Little did Lucy Griffins know she just shattered imaginary AS relationships across the world. Plus, I’m always entertained and impressed with everyone’s investigative skills!

    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…

  • ladybug

    @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.

  • mforman

    @#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.

  • Macy

    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.

  • Camille

    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.

  • mforman

    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.

  • Canuck

    @Camille: It does count, but it’s always good to have a backup plan ;)

  • looninthemoon

    @Just wow.: @A bit late.:

    You think Alex should date his looney stalker fans? Actors always date and/or marry their co stars why Alex is an exception?

  • looninthemoon

    Sry “Just wow”, I agree with you. My answer above was meant only for “A bit late”
    Alex indeed needs some Swedish or Scandinavian woman who are not known to be as shallow as American women. Just look at these comments here “he’s so hot”, “he’s balding” etc. Oh my..

  • Cafélady

    @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

  • mforman

    @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.

  • Lois
  • ladybug

    Michael McMillian is such a tease:

    I see the thumb troll came back.

    Has JJ deleted more comments?

    The ‘where will Alex live after TB’ question actually came from a commenter on a TB forum. So yet another idea that I’ve happily stolen.

  • Cafélady

    @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

  • mforman

    @#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.

  • ladybug

    “You just worked with your son, Alexander, in Melancholia. How was that?
    Ah, it’s great. I have three sons that are actors, and I’ve worked with all of them. It’s fun because you see… And it was nice to see him work so well with Lars, and Lars loved him so much. After every take, Lars came up to me and said, ‘You see, he’s much better than you are!’ I’d say, ‘Lars, that’s evolution for you!’..

  • Camille

    I love that Alex and his dad are so playful in their relationship. I wish we’d get some new stuff though, that quote is pretty old and they keep reusing the same things over and over.

  • ladybug

    @Camille: I keep hoping that this will be the year that interviewers ask new and interesting questions and that any photo shoots will stop trying to photograph Alex as Eric-all broody and photoshopped-and do a photo shoot showing Alex as Alex-funny and goofy.
    I’m not holding my breath.

  • Camille

    I don’t have high hopes for any of that. The goofy photoshoots don’t seem to sell in North America. Everyone wants smoldering sex pot. I think the Europeans appreciate smiles and goofiness more.

  • Cafélady

    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.

  • Mr T
  • ladybug

    @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.

  • POGO


    I love the original’s with Rapace in them. Im american. My daughter introduces me to them. After the first one I was like is there more. I have all three in my movie collection.

    In my opinion Rapace is Lisbeth. So Im with you on the opinion of that.

    Back on topic I love that man in a suite.

  • Potstirrer

    Has anyone noticed that none of the Skarsgard children resemble each other besides Bill and Eija? You have to wonder just how much sleeping around old My did while Stellan was in rehearsal or on location.

  • Katie

    @Mr T:
    Aww, Bill is such a cutie! :)
    Who’s the girl btw? Anyone know?

  • mforman

    @#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.

  • Macy

    If my memory is correct, her name is Hannah and she’s Gustaf’s girlfriend.

  • POGO


    mforman, you are no more dirty than the rest of us. We all can’t help it that the man makes clothes look good on him.

  • ladybug
  • Cafélady

    @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

  • ladybug

    @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.

  • ladybug
  • Macy

    I like that summary better actually. It gives a bit more depth to the story.

  • mforman

    @#284—POGO—Thanks for making me feel better about my comment. I really cannot believe how much better AS gets year after year, it is a true joy to witness.

  • Any news?

    What’s happened? To Alex and Lucy Griffith I thought they were dating? Holding hands in some GG party video No more sightings or news where are the pics the” insider ” said fans took of Alex and Lucy holding hands? It’s been 3 weeks at least?
    Was it just some rumor ? .and nothing confirmed,

  • Canuck

    @POGO: Yeah, it’s not like we don’t have eyes, lol

  • Canuck

    @ladybug: :)
    And who didn’t go to the gym enough last season? Lol

  • Mia

    @Any news?:

    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
    27 Jan Denisse Hidalgo @Negra_Hidalgo
    Alexander Skarsgard en Mammoth Lakes, CA!

    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
    new to add pictures new sightings? Sorry

  • ladybug

    AS on TB set, but not in Eric clothing:

  • Cafélady

    @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

    @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.

  • Camille

    He looks like he’s between shooting. It also looks like he threw on a hoodie because possibly he was doing shirtless scenes. It doesn’t look like he’s wearing anything underneath it.

  • POGO


    Alex is a true joy to watch in his acting. He has what it takes to be one of the greats. I’ve enjoyed all the movies I have seen him in. Very good actor.


    He is why I like having 20/20 vision. LOL

  • Canuck

    @Camille: I was thinking the same thing. Plus the fish belly white makeup matches from face to neck to what you can see of his chest. And hello Ipad ;)
