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: Oh, good I wasn’t the only one noticing that he might not have a shirt on. I feel so much better now! :)
    The SkarsSons do wear suits well:

  • Camille

    @Canuck:
    Totally. Either that or he’s wearing one of those super low cut wife beaters.

    @ladybug:
    I saw that picture! It’s from the Swedish Oscars isn’t it?

  • Cafélady

    @ladybug:
    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

    Lara Pulver (Claudine):
    “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.”

  • Cafélady

    @ladybug:
    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…

  • ladybug

    @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.
    And if you’re watching the Super Bowl tomorrow, there’s be a Battleship commercial:

    Alex has been spotted at the gym the last couple days. Hopefully this will mean lots of nekkid scenes!!

    @Macy:
    LOL! Loved the last tweet! :D

  • ladybug

    @Macy: Pity for her I suspect his filming schedule doesn’t really allow for a completely regular gym schedule. Though probably lucky for him, pap-wise. But it’s been almost a month since the last gym shot, I think we’re due a new one! :)

  • Macy

    @ladybug:
    ROWR! Well he was there two days in a row, so maybe he had some time off. I do wish we could get a new sighting of him though. Gym pics, walking pics, lunch pics, anything really.

  • ladybug

    @Macy: Time off, but also probably not a regular schedule day to day, he may work 6 days in a row, noon to midnight, and then the next week 4 days in a row 9 pm to 6 am, or something similar.
    Does he know that when he’s there many of his fellow gym-goers are ogling/tweeting about him?
    http://twitter.com/#!/BretEastonEllis/status/134539692392710144

  • Canuck

    @ladybug: That pretty much sucks. Dude who tweeted that needs to STFU, methinks.

  • ladybug

    @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:
    http://jezebel.com/5878634/bret-easton-ellis-finds-alexander-skarsgard-sexually-electric/gallery/1
    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?

  • Canuck

    @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?

  • ladybug

    @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
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bret_Easton_Ellis#Personal_life
    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.

  • ladybug

    MicMac had better not be playing with us:
    It’s gonna be really, really good. The whole season so far has been great. It’s very vampire centred. I think season five is gonna start paying off the promises of the first four seasons. It’s like, ok, now you know the way the world works, we’ve introduced these separate plotlines, these separate characters, and it’s really starting to come together this season in a big, big way.”

  • Camille

    @ladybug:
    I sure hope it’s vampire centric. I’m tired of all the superfluous storylines, they’re terrible and don’t add anything to the plots.

  • Camille

    I wonder if Alex is in NYC or if these are older photos. That’s Mats Sundin he is with, a Swedish hockey player, though retired.

    Hmm, in checking with Meatballs tumblr apparently those photos are like 3 years old.

  • ladybug

    @Camille: the tumblr sites are getting desperate, scouring the web for any obscure pic of Alex.
    He’ll have to come out again in a couple of months, to start really promoting Battleship.

  • Camille

    @ladybug:
    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.

  • ladybug

    @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.

  • Cafélady

    @ladybug:
    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”.

  • ladybug

    @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.

    Apparently Battleship is being released in April in Europe, so perhaps we’ll get some premieres/interviews then (I really wasn’t paying attention to the Euro release dates):
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1440129/releaseinfo

  • Macy

    @ladybug:
    Big shocker now that you know who isn’t in his life anymore. And people wonder who was setting that up. Look no further than twitter for evidence.

  • ladybug

    @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.

  • Carona

    thanks for the recent pictures you guys and gals , i missed seeing him I hope we see some more pics soon .but i agree with @ladybug it`s probably a profeessional and personal choice his decision now . I love him . season 5 almost here

  • Ria

    Not to bring up a bad memory..but the “are they/aren’t they”, leaving the chateau together in a car, etc…reminds me of 2009 Scream awards..ugh!! at least this one is an upgrade:)

  • Camille

    @ladybug:
    I agree. I think he ran the danger of being oversaturated for awhile there and he’s aware of it. Now we all look with a lot of anticipation when we get new glimpses instead of just taking it for granted.

  • Canuck

    @Camille: Not to mention 330 posts on his threads because we’re patient as well :)

  • ladybug

    @Camille: If only the Kardashians and LeAnn Rimes had such self awareness!
    He mentioned in his interviews last year that he wanted to make ‘smart decisions now’ and that he wanted and try and make sure he was in the acting game for the long haul. And I’d say that the hide in plain sight strategy is part of that.

  • Sighting.

    From yuku
    Natasha heasman @natashaheasman
    Model currently has Alexander Skarsgard staying in her house, must find something to bribe her with to Skype him/hide in her suitcase

    She is a fashion assistant for Marie Claire on location in Marrakech.

    So is Alex having a getaway break with a model very interesting I hope she is a nice model , tall brazilian , also I really doubt Alex is dating this
    Lucy g there would have been sightings of them by now!

  • Cafélady

    @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.

  • Macy

    @Sighting.:
    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.

  • ladybug

    @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.

  • Macy

    @ladybug:
    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.

  • ladybug

    @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:

  • Macy

    @ladybug:
    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.

  • Canuck

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

  • Oslo

    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.

  • ladybug

    @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.

  • TEXAS SWEDE

    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.

  • ladybug

    @TEXAS SWEDE: Hi, Texas Swede!
    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?

  • ladybug

    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…
    http://www.inside-true-blood-blog.com/

  • Macy

    @TEXAS SWEDE:
    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.

  • ladybug

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