Wait, is Pam human now? Why is she crying normal tears? I thought vampires tears were made of blood.

TEXAS SWEDE @ 05/01/2012 at 5:42 am

@Kinnamanfan: Good catch. Big Blooper!!!!!!! Wonder who directed that one?

# 8

The latest Sookie book just came out. Anyone else read it yet?

# 9

@TEXAS SWEDE: These are rough cuts, the ‘blood’ is added in post production.

Im ready to watch it now. Eric and Pam together again. Yes. They are two funny together,

@Canuck: I’m going to get it after work :)

@Lilla: I had it pre-purchased via Itunes and so when I woke up this morning, there it was, just waiting to be downloaded.

Bring it on !!!!!!!

Anyone else got the urge to give him a big hug to make the look on his face in that photo go away?

Disney Villainess @ 05/01/2012 at 10:38 am

@July: Yes!, Baby Yes! IMO, there’s nothing wrong with being superficial(in small doses) and with Skars, it just ain’t that hard to be.;-)

@Kinnamanfan: These are just the rough cuts, they add all the special effects and such afterwards.

Love him as Eric soooo sexy! Can’t wait for True Blood to come back.

@Canuck: I should have done that. I’m actually nervous about reading it. I didn’t really like the last book. And yes, I’m on board for giving him some hugs :)

@Lilla: Well, when you’re done it, ask yourself “Where is the out?”. I suspect that’s what’s going to happen in the next book. I won’t post spoilers, but there’s a bit in Ch. 8 that outlines motives. Think about it a bit when you get there.

@Lilla: The look on his face slays me in this pic. He looks so sad.

@Canuck: From what I’ve read through spoilers & comments, I know not to give up, its just going to be a bumpy ride? Is that how you feel?

He does look sad…we need to help him get happy :)

@Lilla: Not so much rough from an Eric / Sookie point of view, but Sookie probably needs a nice relaxing holiday after how turbulent her life is.

@Canuck: I’ve felt that she’s needed that since book 9. So, it’s worth the read in your opinion?

@Lilla: it was much better written than the last one. It centers more around what is happening in Sookie’s life in relation to other people than to Eric. At first read, I was annoyed at the end. Then, after having read a few reviews and comments, I found myself agreeing that the conclusion that CH is trying to make you think isn’t where the story will actually go in the next book. So by all means, read it. And then go back to chapter 8 and read the motivations I mentioned earlier. If you stop and think where the issues are going to come from in the next book, you’ll find the “out” that CH is hopefully going to take.

@Lilla: Also, chapter 9 where Bill discusses the motives of the deal with Sookie fleshes it out a bit.

Cafélady @ 05/01/2012 at 4:24 pm

@Canuck: I must admit, I’m hopelessly behind the schedule with reading the books..because after ‘dead and gone’ I had lost a bit my enthusiasm who I had for the first five books. But at least, I ordered today ‘dead reckoning’ at amazon…lol
I promised myself that at least I will end the series, even though the enthusiasm isn’t the same anymore like at the beginning…

As for the clip; interesting scene…fueled the appetite for more…lol
I admit, this I haven’t expected, because the last two epi’s of s4 were annoying in some ways.
But before every new season I can observe again that my ‘waiting sucks’-level then anyway is rising again…somehow….;)

“Where do I sign?” the sexy Skars smirked when Access Hollywood asked him how he felt about playing Christian Grey in Universal’s big screen adaptation of E.L. James’ bestselling novel Fifty Shades of Grey.

Holy hunk of Swedish hotness, we literally could not be more excited about the possibility of A.Skars playing this racy role. We’ve been saying for weeks that Alex is totally perfect for this par-tick role—he can pull off the bad-boy schtick (thank you, Eric Northman) but he also has that softer side to make the romance with Ana totally believable.

“I was born to play that part,” he admitted to Access with a grin.

Uh, tell us something we don’t already know. #Skarsgårdforfifty—let’s get this topic trending.”

http://www.eonline.com/news/the_awful_truth/alexander_skarsgaringrd_on_fifty_shades/312719#ixzz1tegrZHsA

Wow. Ted’s really pushing this one. I’ve got to admit Alex would be ideal for the role. I just cringe at the Twilight association.

@TC: Ted may wish all he wants, If Alex really didn’t know about 50 Shades, he probably knows more about now and since he wants to expand his acting roles, not get typecast, I think that even if he were offered it he’d say no. I hope. Really hope.

@Canuck: Ok, so chapters 8 & 9 have been read & I skimmed through the whole book. I think I get the ‘out’. It’s going to be a long wait!!

gosh eric is so hot!!!

@ladybug: I hope too. I’m pretty sure he was joking during that interview.

Cafélady @ 05/01/2012 at 6:46 pm

@ladybug: To my shame I must admit, I have absolutely no clue about this book…lol
I believe I’ve never read it, at least not in english, because the english-title ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ says nothing to me unfortunately.
Also I have no idea of the story in the book, can you give me a little tipp about it please? May be that then I could decide better whether it sounds familiar to me – or also not.

@Cafélady: 50 Shades was originally written as Twilight fan-fic. Having skimmed some pages, the writing doesn’t seem to be any better than Twilight.

“Let me be clear: There’s absolutely nothing wrong with “Fifty Shades of Grey” as a concept; erotic fiction can be, and often has been, beautifully written. It’s the book’s execution that’s problematic. Well, the execution and the characters. And the writing. And also the plot.”

Ted c knows diddly swat about the dating rumor, not so long ago he said they were an actual couple, know it’s Charlize has other priorities in her life right know (Jackson)

Dear ted

What exactly is the deal with my fave vamp Alexander Skarsgård and my favorite leading lady Charlize Theron? Is this relationship the real deal? Or is it more of a friends with benefits situation? Both their careers are pretty hot right now and with little Jackson to take care of, does Charlize even have time for anything more than some loving on the side? I need to know!
—Penny

Dear Needy:
Darling, you sound like you’ll implode if you don’t find out what exactly Charlize will be doing with her lips and love life for the next 20 years! Remember this: Charlize and Stuart Townsend were together a very long time not that long ago. Many people thought they would marry (including, for a time, Char and Stuart themselves). So, a year later, if Charlize wants to take her time with a hot stud like A.Skars, let her! And, as you said, she does have some other priorities right now like Jackson.

Whycantipost @ 05/01/2012 at 7:27 pm

@ladybug:

#27: I also really hope he doesn’t do it. The story could be worked with, it could be a nice movie.. but the whole Twilight-link makes me go, NOOO.

@Ted c; Ted changes his opinion A LOT. Which kinda proves he doesn’t know what the hell he is talking about, haha

@Canuck: I haven’t read it yet, didn’t buy it this time, am getting it from the library. But that’s the impression I’m getting from some of the online reviewers (especially a couple who’ve read her other series) that they”ll be some initially freaking out. But calm down, and then redread it.

@Ted c, I can’t decide whether or not he’s walking back on the ‘CT and AS are hot and heavy’ or not.
OTOH, this is Ted, so even if that’s what he meant today, he’ll post something contradictory in the next week.

Cafélady @ 05/01/2012 at 8:33 pm

@ladybug: #32 Thanks for the link, ladybug.
well…sounds somehow like a person who admired the ‘twilight’-plots, but wanted to add something ‘more’ and first of all to add a little ‘polarizing’ stuff to it…lol…plus perhaps parts of the own (secret) fantasies (and one can suppose that very probably the -in the article-described situation wouldn’t have a chance in the real life of the author, I guess). …

The topic itself mustn’t be necessary always somehow anti-feministic – I mean it depends on the sort of writing, I think.
I remember that I’ve read years ago Benoite Groult’s “Salt on our skin” (if you perhaps know this) and it tended also a bit (just a bit!) in this direction I think, at least as far as I can remind on it – and regarding to the erotic topic. But of course, so far I can judge it (and how the story sounds to me) – no comparison with the genial writing of Groult’s book!

But all in all (after all this info and so far I can judge it now), I would say – yes, pretty probably that he was joking during the interview. lol :))

As much as I think we would all love to see AS as Christian, I knew he never would when he referenced that Christian has a sex chamber just like Eric. He has always said he doesn’t want to do the same types of characters or roles, so that killed it for me, he is already comparing the characters.
This is the first time I haven’t gotten the latest Sookie book, I was so disappointed last time, that I am waiting a while, until I finish the 50 Shades trilogy. I am in no rush to be disappointed again.
I cannot wait for this season, it is looking better and better with each new sneak peak.

@Whycantipost: With a more than decent screenwriter and director, plus producer, etc you could get a good movie. And it would still probably be known as ‘that Twilight fan-fic movie/book)..

Cafélady @ 05/01/2012 at 9:20 pm

@ladybug: Pardon, I don’t wanted to injure someone’s (fan) feelings to this fan-fiction.
But somehow I don’t understand this description as a ‘twilight-fanfic’..I mean, at least ‘twilight’ doesn’t describe a violent relationship (with/o violent erotic-life)?! Ok, I haven’t read this ’50 shades’-thing…but from what I could read in the article, in that sense it isn’t really a comparison to twilight (unless the author of the article refers to bella’s a bit naive devotion to edward and this special sort of relationship itself), but else?

@mforman: Honestly -and with all due respect for your opinion- (which I appreciate very much!) but you would seriously want to see alex in a role-character who slaps his girlfriend?? (At least this was my conclusion after reading that article from ladybug’s link..) But possibly I interpreted something wrong…

@Cafélady: It started as Twilight fanfic, but she tweaked some things.

@Cafelady—How are you? If you read the books, there is alot more to it than smacking around ones gf. It is about a dom/sub relationship, that is why I never understood the Twilight comparisons. No way anything like Twilight.
But there is alot behind this character and I would love to see him play a character that is so difficult and conflicted, he would kill it.
But after that article, and interview I saw I don’t think he will touch it.

LAPerfect @ 05/01/2012 at 9:58 pm

Call me crazy, and this probably seriously dates me, but I keep thinking about how hot a much younger Mickey Rourke and Kim Basinger were together in 9 1/2 Weeks. If they could rework the story for Fifty to that level to give Alex something to sink his teeth into, I’d be saying, “Yes, please!” right along with Ted. I know, I know! *ducks*

I truly do believe that Ted C, knows nothing, he reads the gossip magazines and then rewrites what they do, adding his own ridiculous touches. He never has a true opinion. AS/tumor so perfect, AS/tumor so wrong, AS/CT perfect and hot and heavy, AS/CT both very busy and she just got out a long term relationship, and has other priorities, Ted C, what does he actually get paid for. The majority of us could do his job 100% better than him and give the people that bother with his column at least true things. I mean seriously we all knew he would back track, he always does.
Ted C has a very weird fixation on poor AS. I love reading the comments people post on his column, they also say things like, make up your mind Ted, stop making up stories, etc. It is truly very funny.

@Texas Swede—-How are you feeling? I hope all is getting better with each passing day.

alguien sabe si alexander skarsgard ya esta en Colombia?

@Lilla: Lol, that was cheating! Bet you went to the last couple of pages first…

@mforman: The original story was posted online in a Twilight fanfiction category. The title characters were Edward and Bella. The physical descriptions match Edward and Bella. The lip biting thing… Pure KStew. Wearing chucks? KStew. The playing the piano thing? Edward/RPatz. There are times when she’s describing what he’s wearing that directly correspond with RPatz photoshoots.

TEXAS SWEDE @ 05/02/2012 at 4:27 am

@mforman: Thank you it is. I have been battling other things the last few days but that is another story…LOL. Definitely learned not to try to be a peacemaker for myself or anyone else. People are going to believe only what they want to believe. No matter how much evidence you give them. Not gossip but evidence. So I withdrew the offer of the olive branch and will never offer it again. I transgress.

I am feeling much stronger and sassier every day. I do not need the pain relievers very often during the day. And only sometimes at night. Still have trouble with sleeping at night as you can tell by post. ;) But that will work itself out.

My book did not arrive today as it should have so I am anxiously waiting for it.

I know Alex could play the part of Christopher well but I hope he was joking about it. And I think he was. He tends to be a bit sarcastic in interviews sometimes. To play that part would go against everything he has stated about wanting to not be typecast. He has stated he has been offered a lot of vampire roles but doesn’t want to do any more vampires right now. I hope he sticks to it. Now if they offer him mega millions to do it and it would help him do some projects he wants to produce I could accept it. Sometimes it stinks to know the business side of things and know that some things need to be done for money whether you really like it or not. I hope he gets better offers elsewhere.

@TEXAS SWEDE: Let’s face it… If he starred in it, it would probably be a massive hit and that would likely give him enough box office credibility with the money people that his choice of scripts would expand hugely. That said, how much does he really want his first big HW movie hit where he’s in the starring role to be for playing a character whose personality is somewhat reminiscent of his breakout TV character?

He’d have a hard time getting away from it after that.

nom du plume @ 05/02/2012 at 9:11 am

I agree, A.S. would probably say no to Fifty Shades unless they could convince a really good director to take on a project that would be borderline pornographic. There is a better role out there for him. A self-published novel on Kindle Amazon called St. Bart’s. Read the free preview and tell me the author didn’t have A.S in mind.

@Texas Swede—I am so glad things seem to be getting a little better. I thought the olive branch was a very nice thought. Oh well.
That was what I was saying, the moment he joked about Eric and the sex dungeon, I knew he wouldn’t be playing Christian. I really think as much as he would kill the role, it might put him into a category that he has said he doesn’t want to be in.
With everything he has coming up, I am sure there will be no shortage of parts for that amazing talented man.
Keep being your sassy self.

@hmmmmmmm: I love it too .Thanks for the picture .He looks tired but good .

Looking good @ 05/02/2012 at 1:20 pm

Whole cast look thrilled, and over the moon to be there, what wonderful big smiles they all have on there faces (sarcasm turned on )

They must be getting bored and tired of all the promo work I bet Alex cannot Waite to get back to LA. Or a visit to Sweden for some rest.

Oh Gosh I forgot Alex looks so good different colour clothing I like it very much, I didn’t notice the other cast members clothing choices I was distracted by Alex :)

TEXAS SWEDE @ 05/02/2012 at 1:41 pm

The man shows his world traveler savvy. He chose the colors of the region. And he wears them well. I am so glad he did not go for the hat styles of the area though.

Anyone heard anymore about ‘Bullies’? I think with ‘Hidden’ and ‘Bullies’ his slate will be full this next year if he resigns with TB. His contract was for 5 years. So I am waiting to see if he is going to continue it or not. I am going to my corner for thinking negative thoughts now. BBL :(

@TEXAS SWEDE:
He has contract for 6 years so it finishes on 6 season “True Blood”.

TEXAS SWEDE @ 05/02/2012 at 3:11 pm

@wow:

Sorry I thought I heard him say 5 in an interview. Guess I can turn off my worry wart switch for another year. Thanks.

I actually thought it was/is a 7 year contract. Personally I’ll be happy when he gets to move on from TB – I know it gets him out there, but I think it’s starting to limit him, especially now where the writing is as bad as it is.

Love his look in Columbia. I do understand if they look tired by now though. Considering the size of his part, it’s also great to see him be part of the pr.

@TEXAS SWEDE: is it me or is BD slightly overdressed?

Ok totally and completely off AS topic but I’m all sorts of pis*ed off now! Some stoopid freaking twat on the post about Anna Paquin just hoped she miscarried. I am probably never going to be able to have children due to chemo/radiation I had as a teen answer to wish that on ANYONE no matter how much you dislike them is just sick. Sorry to bring it here but I’m seriously fuming now…..

@chelle: Why in the eff would anyone say stuff like that????? That’s sickening.

@Tanter: I think the leads all signed for 7.
I read something a few months ago, on another site, that the contracts might be for 7 years, not 7 seasons, so AP, SM and AS might all be ‘free’ after S6. I have no idea if that’s true or not.

And yeah, he looks tired. LA to Honolulu, Honolulu to Colombia, lots of flying for him in the last few days. He’ll probably be happy that the promo stuff will be done with by the 18th.

OK I am totally drooling in my socks over Skars outfit in Columbia…. looks absolutely yummy!

Alexander Skarsgard Thinks Rihanna Is Beautiful

Alexander Skarsgard and Rihanna worked on Battleship together and she admitted that she could barely keep the flood gates to her lady bits together when she was around him because he’s SO gorgeous (which we wholeheartedly agree). While he was able to keep his evil stick in place, he did admit to Cosmopolitan U.K. that she is beautiful and one of the hardest working people he’s met:

“Yeah, she’s beautiful,” he said. “And she’s so hard-working. We would shoot on a Friday, then she’d fly from Hawaii to Los Angeles to perform at the MTV Awards, then she’d be back again.”

He’s single, she’s single (and very horny).  I wonder how long it is before the rumors start (although it is being reported he’s dating Charlize Theron).

While he wouldn’t break the law for love like his character in the movie, he does consider himself romantic:

“I’ve not broken the law – I hate to disappoint you,” “But I am a romantic – I think it’s in the little things.”

Romantic and he has no inhibitions about doing nudity for True Blood. Why I believe we’ve hit the jackpot on hot mansicles ladies. And while people joke that his ass gets as much air time as his face he’s okay with that:

“That’s the money shot! People get bored when they see my face,” he said.

“They don’t recognize my face; they recognize my ass.”

Bored with his face? NEVER. I’m not sure I would be able to identify his ass in a police line up or anything. Okay, I lied. I totally could.

Cafélady @ 05/02/2012 at 7:49 pm

@mforman: #41 I’m fine (health wise, thankfully – and the other mentioned stuff, well…somehow it will go..lol), thanks for asking. :)
And anyway – when I consider what problems some other people have now (like texas swede for instance) – then I guess, I lament on a relative high level… I mean, it’s not ideal for me, but it also could be worse. lol
And you? I hope all is well.

As for “50 shades” and so on;…well…like I said, I haven’t read these books – but if you’re of that opinion, that this role would match to him (acting-wise), then I will believe you.
I mean, it’s not like that I would have anything against roles with inner conflicts and/or difficult character for him (in opposite these are the artistic roles who I think he should have it for the future) but I think it really depends on how such a character is written.

And in addition, he played already difficult character (with a little tendency to violence). Ok, not in HW (I’ve meant ‘Om Sara’ for instance). But in this example the focus lied on the inner problems of both – not on the violence itself. Or that one of both even would enjoy violence.

@I need my fix: “While he wouldn’t break the law for love like his character in the movie, he does consider himself romantic:”

Isn’t it Taylor Kitsch’s character that breaks the law, not Alex’s?

Cafélady @ 05/02/2012 at 8:08 pm

@mforman: Addendum (at #69):.I have to correct…of course, he also played difficult character in HW already – in straw dogs for instance. But in this case, the violence wasn’t during the relationship and initiated by other things and charlie’s own problems. So – the violence wasn’t part of the relationship of amy and charlie.

@Looking good: oh idk, his hips are too wide for my taste

Cafélady @ 05/02/2012 at 8:17 pm

@ladybug: #70 Without want to give away the story – but yeah, you’re right it’s taylor’s role-character who breaks the law. (And btw. I’m not sure what on this thing shall be that romantic – like alex said, it’s more other, little things…) ;)

@Cafélady: Well, that part, with Taylor’s character, has been out there for awhile, so it’s not like it would be hard to fact check.

@mmm: there’s something feminine about him, I cannot quite put my finger on it, but *blushes* it makes him hot, I’m weird

Cafélady @ 05/02/2012 at 8:43 pm

@ladybug: Right. But you know, there are always people who don’t want to hear too much of a upcoming movie. Personal I don’t have a big problem with spoilers – if it’s not unconditional describes exactly the end of the film or a book.

Btw; I like what he wore at this press conference in cartagena. Not the usual look of him – but it matches to him.
And yes, I also think he looked a bit tired. But that’s no wonder with the lot of flights he had recently, I guess…

@Cafélady: I’m not really considering it a spoiler, unless it plays a part later in the movie. Which I’m not seen mentioned. It’s just the thing that strikes me as lazy writing, not being able to keep the two characters straight, and not bothering to try, apparently.

New pic from Colombia:

http://askarsswedishmeatballs.tumblr.com/post/22289047409

He looks great with the lighter colors. I bet it’s exhausting travelling all around like that but at least he gets to do some promotion. It sucked that he never got to go to Cannes or anything before. TB seems to be giving him a lot of time off for this. I wonder if he won’t get a spring trip back home because of it.

Cafélady @ 05/02/2012 at 9:27 pm

@ladybug: No, it isn’t later in the movie. :)
I guess the interviewer has searched for an anchor to lead him to this ‘romantic’-topic sector. So in that case the questioner gave a kiss for that, that he twisted something of the story.

As for the pic; seems like as would a lot of people wear the clothing-combination which he also wore. That’s another thing I like about him – he tries often to fit himself into its surroundings – and so optical too. But always with his own note.
And the boots again if I have seen right – perhaps I was right with it, with the one packed suitcase for several events/flights? ;) lol

@Macy: I think the May break is for everyone, so he might be able to go home anyway. I do wonder if he’ll have a slightly reduced role in whatever episode they’re filming now.

Cafélady, I think those are the boots. Hard to tell, though. If only the photographers understood our need to see his footwear :)
I envy his ability to pack light.

@ladybug:
That would be quite a lot of travel, but I guess he’s used to it. Hopefully he’ll get home for a few days.

Even tired, AS is the hottest actor in HW, he looks amazing in those colors seriously, in my eyes the man can do no wrong. Sorry I cannot help it. Why is BD dressed up like that, it looks like a casual type premiere, I think she is getting a little carried away.
@chelle (#64)—Whoever made that post was a disgusting human being and should be ashamed of themselves. That is not even a normal thing to post or write. JJ really needs to do something about alot of these terrible posts people are making.
I also remember reading that when the leads signed on to TB, it was a 7 season minimum commitment. I am going to go back and see if I can find that somewhere.
@Cafelady—–I am glad everything is going better, with everything. You deserve that. As much as I think he would kill the role of Christian, I do not think he is going to do it. The Eric joke he made in the interview, and the fact he likes joking around in interviews, I really do not think he will let himself get into the same type of role, he likes to try new things. You should read the books though, they are really good.

TEXAS SWEDE @ 05/02/2012 at 10:55 pm

@Chelle A little overdressed is a gross understatement. That would be like me putting on make up and getting all dressed up to go to dialysis.

Whoever made that awful statement about Anna needs a trip behind the woodshed. Apparently they did not visit it often enough in their youth. Wishing the death of a child on someone is cruel and heartless whether born or unborn.

Does anyone know when and where the US premier of Battleship is?

I did notice that Hidden is in pre-production already. I check often on the three in the can movies of his but all are still post production. No word on release.

I hope he gets a trip home soon. His twinkle is fading. We need it back.

@Texas Swede—-I believe the US premiere is on May 10th in LA, the film opens on the 18th.

TEXAS SWEDE @ 05/03/2012 at 1:55 am

Alexander Skarsgard – Alexander Skarsgard Dating Italian Skydiver

check out Roberta Mancino’s facebook page she is gorgeous AND BRUNETTE!!!!!!!!

FROM CONTACTMUSIC.COM
Alexander Skarsgard is reportedly dating an Italian skydiver but is keen to keep things casual.

Alexander Skarsgard is dating an Italian skydiver.

However, while the ‘True Blood’ hunk is happy to spend time with Roberta Mancino, 31, he is reportedly not looking for anything serious.

A source told Life & Style magazine: ”He’s been courting her and taking her out to dinner a lot. It’s not a serious relationship, but they look forward to hanging out together even more. They really like each other.”

Perhaps one of the reasons Alexander wants to keep his dating options open is the recent confession by ‘Battleship’ co-star Rihanna that she has a crush on him.

The ‘We Found Love’ hitmaker said: ”I was completely intimidated by the other actors. But I had a lot of scenes with Taylor Kitsch and he helped me out a lot along the way.

”Alexander Skarsgard is so hot. I had to keep my game face. I could stare at him all day long. I was just watching him on set. He was really sweet.”

Alexander previously dated Kate Bosworth for two years and has been linked to Charlize Theron.

A bit random @ 05/03/2012 at 4:25 pm

Well if he likes this Italian lady then good for him, but it’s a bit random all of a sudden?
Someone has been spilling the beans to some gossip mag after Alex has been keeping the whatever relationship quite with this Italian lady .

I think I would rather Waite until Alex actually confirms he has a GF or pics (pics speak and thousand words more then in print )

here is another article him and Rihanna got frisky (yeah what ever)

From life and style

True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgård Is Seeing Three Women!
Quite the busy fella! Life & Style can reveal that True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgård is seeing three women!

Alexander Skarsgård is quite the ladies’ man! While promoting his new movie, Battleship, in Tokyo in April, the True Blood star got frisky with his co-star Rihanna, 24.

“They went to a geisha bathhouse,” an eyewitness tells Life & Style. “They were drinking, and before you knew it they were in a corner getting hot and heavy.”

But they’re not exclusive: Alex, 35, has also been linked to Charlize Theron, 36, and he’s romancing Italian skydiver Roberta Mancino, 31.

“He and Roberta have been seeing each other for a few months,” a friend confirms to Life & Style. “He’s been courting her and taking her out to dinner a lot. It’s not a serious relationship, but they look forward to hanging out together even more. They really like each other.”

Before getting close with these ladies, Alexander dated actress Kate Bosworth, 29, for two years until they ended their relationship last summer.

@bobby: Good for him. He is doing what single guys do. He is dating. I am sure we will hear of another gorgeous female from somewhere soon that he is seeing. I hope he is having fun.

Music Fan @ 05/03/2012 at 5:19 pm

Well for the dating rumour: He is European and let’s not forget he is Scandinavian, God dammit! You do what you do man! Be happy and enjoy the ride!

Oh no! Now he’s called a man *****? Basing on what… rumours.

http://www.showbizspy.com/

@TEXAS SWEDE: Well, the source for this is Life & Style, which is on a par with the Enquirer for reliability.

LOL. A man *****. Tell some us what we already know. :) He is the heavy in between type of dater. that’s all Whoa I googled Mancino and she is really something else. But on a serious note, practice safe sex Alex (pointing my finger) LOL.

It is such a shame that his movie news hidden and bullies is being over shadowed by this dating crap, I swear the gossip rags are desperate for news on Alex because he so private and gives nothing away, I knew it would not belong before they jumped on the rhianna story because she fancies him or finds him attractive.
And where did the skydiver stripper come from that one is out of the blue. Nice classy lady Lol

Lucy griffiths
Charlize theron
Rhianna
Italian skydiving stripper

Jeez Alex jet lag my a** get some rest PLEASE all these ladies your rumored to be seeing no wonder your tired lol

Also It always seems to be reported In print but never no snap shots to go with the article of “said” dating or hookup

This is just BULL S***

@hmmmmmmm: everything I found on her said she has been with some extreme sports guy sincere 2009. She is beautiful though.

@chelle: Pity, I really want to see Alex do BASE jumping and wearing slightly goofy outfits.*
But really: RiRi and Alex getting hot and heavy a month ago, in public, and only now gets ‘reported’?
Charlize, well, at least they’ve been seen together.
“a friend confirms” that he’s dating Roberta-whose friend? Alex’s? His friends don’t talk to the press.

*OTOH, this means she’s two timing on her long-time boyfriend with Alex, and Alex is with her and Charlize (and Charlize is also with Keanu) and Lucy and EO AND RiRi. I suspect the possibility of a very successful soap opera here.

@chelle- I just do quick google and really don’t go in depth. One thing I did pick up by looking at a picture/article is she’s the one in that new ad for a camera I remember seeing recently on tv. I said “that’s her?” I thought it was done by cgi or something. Awesome.

Trubi newbi @ 05/03/2012 at 7:42 pm

@ladybug

As Roberta got a long term boyfriend? If she has this is very poor and lazy journalism to accuse Alex and this Roberta of hooking up ? When clearly it’s probably not true,

Where do journalists get this crappy info from , there fantasy heads

I can see riri and Alex having a few drinks and possible flirting but romancing no way.

The only dating story probably FWB that is plausible is Charlize and Alex.

I am still hanging onto Lucy griffiths and hoping that something will blossom between them I think she complements Alex in a
nice way and she is different

@ladybug: A high school soap. They could always come where I work. We just had a 3rd year and 2 nurses get the boot for scre*ing in a patient room… together… same time ….lol!
@hmmmmmmm: She’s very beautiful… I’m jealous! I always wanted to skydive but I’m terrified of heights!

Cafélady @ 05/03/2012 at 7:49 pm

…lol…a ‘geisha bathhouse’…sounds relaxing…lol…does anyone have some experiences with places like this?? Because, in my poor small town where I live – here we only have an turkish hammam…but nothing so exclusive…lol ;)

….and now we’re again on this ‘alex’s supposed dating-life’ rumor thing…I wondered already how long it would took this time….*eye rolling*
…and again – no pic’s, no nothing – just the mysterious ‘hot news’ report of an unknown ‘observer’…so nothing new under the sun – at least not really.

And what is against to say – to sharing a (possible) glass of wine or a dinner together (should it be actually true, of course) just to relax – because said person has a really tight schedule and has also a hard workload and after a hard working day/working week tries to get a bit relaxation in this sort of way??

Whatever now was (or not was) actually – I hope he had great fun and hope he also will have fun further.

@ladybug: I should know better by now, I know – but I find that much interest on his very private life a bit irritating. I mean, it isn’t like that we (the usual fans) would have a chance – the most of us haven’t even a chance to see or to meet him once on a event and even then…I mean, what will change this knowledge for these people – whether is he dating actually someone (or more than one..lol) or whether has he a girlfriend??

I guess, for every single woman (and single man) it’s very presumably that he or she from time to time is dating someone. Nothing special I would say.

@Trubi newbi: chelle was the one who posted the stuff about the boyfriend, not me. I was just commenting on her comment.
As for the story, as already mentioned, considering the mag, it’s probably all made up, based on rumors and an active imagination.
How do we know that Lucy complements Alex?

@Cafélady: Yeah, the made up stories and the freak out over them can be annoying.

And, I think you’re correct, he’s got the boots on:

@ladybug: Is that not a great picture?!? I also like the one on there from TB.

Cafélady @ 05/03/2012 at 8:17 pm

@ladybug: yeah…like I said – possibly one time packing the suitcase for all events/flights together…;)) lol
But probably it’s simple – I guess the boots are both; comfortable and matching for almost every event who is rather casual. And who knows what they have done after the promo?? I mean, possibly they all still went to a place where the boots just were the better choice?

@ladybug: that would be the one! Such a doll!

Cafélady @ 05/03/2012 at 8:33 pm

@ladybug: I just love that smile and the face expression here…lol…nice pic…:)

@Cafélady: I’m impressed by his ability to pack lightly.

NOT all false @ 05/03/2012 at 9:15 pm

They said the rumors with CT was that just rumors turns out there is/was something there. I wouldn’t say it is entirely true but it could happen he is under the radar a lot you don’t know where he is at and what he is doing. One minute he is in LA next Sweden, Norway etc. So I buy some of it. I do believe he is playing the field why not he is single after all and if the ladies are okay with it. I think he is enjoying the attention he is getting from famous and pretty girls/women even tho it makes him look like a douche.

When I read what I copied below, I laughed so hard, these rags should realize by now that his fans know that his friends/family never, ever speak about him. That is how they are. I guess what ever it takes to sell papers.
Also, I love the bathhouse with him and RiRi, I bet the true story is that the whole cast hung out that night and this reporter decided this sounded better, I am sure that is what RiRi wanted, but we all know it didn’t happen. This reporter was quite creative, I was waiting for him/her to add on the woman that is starring with him in The Hidden also. Why not, the more the better. It just gets funnier and funnier. These reporters truly must hate how private he is and how they can’t bribe someone in his inner circle. That is why they turn a group date with a bunch of friends into a new romance, too funny.

Moving on to Skarsgard’s second romantic conquest is Italian skydiver Roberta Mancino, 31. According to Life & Style who spoke to a friend of Skarsgard’s the pair have been “seeing each other for a few months,” with Alexander pursuing her even though the relationship isn’t serious. “He’s been courting her and taking her out to dinner a lot. They look forward to hanging out together even more,” Said the source.

@111- maybe it was a friend of a friend of a friend kind of thing. Partying a little too much. too much bubbly at the geisha house then the morning after oh oh’s. LOL.

pics or it didnthappen @ 05/04/2012 at 1:23 am

@mforman: I ship riri/askars, too bad that story is BS

@pics or it didnthappen—-I am sorry what are you saying. I totally agree with you but I am sure that RiRi wanted it to be true. The whole cast probably had dinner and drinks and that was that, but this gossip mag’s reporter decided to get creative. He/she used a geisha house becuase they were in Japan, but if they were in LA who knows what they would have thought of.
What I love is that they are never going to catch AS unless he wants them to and he doesn’t want them too. You truly have to admire him for so mamy things.

@pics or it didnthappen: RiRi’s probably at heart a sweet girl, but waaaaaaaaay too much baggage and ‘issues’ So , no to a Riri/AS hookup.

And apparently Mancino was a the pool party at Coachella, so she’s not entirely a random selection, though she appeared to have been, since no one else knew who she was until they started Googling her.

And they’re still editing The East:

How is “The East” coming along?

We’re in the thick of editing, which is an awesome place to be because the movie can become anything. I always feel like the editing room is like coming into the kitchen. What kind of a meal do you make from there? It can be anything

http://www.indiewire.com/article/catching-up-with-brit-marling?page=1

@LOLOLOLOL: Hah! Mind meld or something.

So someone at life and Style knows who she is and decided that since she was next to AS at a pool party, they must be dating. This is going so sound cynical, but is she promoting anything, because her search numbers and FB page hits must have gone through the roof in the last few hours.

@115- Oh, so some extra and beyond sleuthing was done. She was one of the Coachella freinds by the pool. If it is true, I can see the AS mo is still happening. He really does have a type.

@ ladybug- dont be cynical just yet, her hits came from nosy people like myself who are curious ( remember Lucy Griffths was mega searched at one time)
You know the East is probably the one AS movie I really am anticipating.

@hmmmmmmm: But I am being cynical, sorry. Is this promo stuff coming from her people, or some fevered brain of a writer and Life & Style?
The Lucy stuff wasn’t written about by any mainstream gossip sites, so i think that was just fan stuff.

the fact that she was at Coachella gives the dating rumors more credibility as far as im concerned..at least its not some vapid blond actress…….

@bobby: As pointed out, this is L&S, not exactly up there in the credibility department. So they were at the same party at Coachella and sat next to each other doesn’t really give it any more credibility than the part about RiRi. It just means that the writer didn’t completely pull something out of their butt.
Do we really know what’s going on in his personal life? No, and there’s the high probability that L&S doesn’t either.

Vapid blond actress? KB or CT? :)

@bobby:
… when they would meet if she doesn’t live in LA, doesn’t live in the U.S., she still travels around the world (just look on her pics at the FS). Alex is still working in LA and he travels to promote BS? where is the time and the place? I don’t see this.

@ladybug- Lucy wasn’t mainstream but could you imagine how much more it would have been? Lucy got alot of attention by that Popsugar video alone. Maybe it was from one of the friends there at Coachella and the reporter just happened to pick up on it or the vibe. Sometimes friends are just a matter of fact about things and then go oops.LOL.

We can go with another scenario that he doesn’t care and wants to send the signal that he’s is not in a relationship with anyone (CT?) and if you see him being the playa he’s not cheating etc.

@bobby- I can say this much she sure has no prob with nudity. Something she has in common with our guy.:)

@hmmmmmmm: Ok, deeply reading into pap photos, but… the few photos from the Skyy party he doesn’t really look like he’s deeply into conversation with any of the gaggle of females (which of course means he’s being faithful to CT! ).
Hers is so out of left field that it might be actually be accurate, but I’m taking this article with a continent-sized grain of salt.
While I said mainstream sites for Lucy, really it wasn’t any gossip sites AFIK, just the fan sites.
Perhaps for next week’s premiere he can bring all the women he’s been linked to (they’re going to need a bigger red carpet).

TEXAS SWEDE @ 05/04/2012 at 11:36 am

@ladybug: I can see it now. He arives in a Humvee limo (camo of course) and out streams this bevvy of beautiful and internationally famous women. Then a pause for effect and out steps Alex in that gorgeous blue Tom Ford. Then the women surround him from both sides and they walk the Red Carpet filling it from side to side with him grinning ear to ear. :))

@TEXAS SWEDE: Don’t forget all the women in NYC he was supposedly hooking up with while he was there filming WMK and Disconnect.

@ladybug- I take every gossip with a grain of salt lol. The beauty or curse of deep reading AS pap photos is that he is very good at what he wants people to see or not. :)

TEXAS SWEDE @ 05/04/2012 at 12:54 pm

@ladybug: I know. It is a wonder the man ever gets a lick of work done. He must be twins. Do I need to flash my sarcasm sign for others to see>;)

@TEXAS SWEDE: I’ve mentioned it on other threads, I think they’ve successfully cloned him, one AS is for his social life, the other for work.

@TEXAS SWEDE:
Hi, glad you doing well(ish) – and no need to neon-light your sarcasm :-)
And save your bruised and damaged olive branch for another day.
Stay safe and most importantly happy
xx

@ladybug- LOL. AS can and probably does make the time for getting his flirt time in. It not all work ;) Multitasking , multitasking my friends.

TEXAS SWEDE @ 05/04/2012 at 1:43 pm

@hmmmmmmm: From all the reports lately I would say he has mastered multitasking.

@Zola24: Good to hear from you and thanks on all accounts. I am always happy no matter what. But my PO’d limit was definitely getting pushed. ;)

Big e-hugs to you.

@hmmmmmmm: Oh, I think he’s getting some, somewhere somehow. Just probably not anyone mentioned in the articles. Maybe not even CT.

@ladybug: OK since I was bored and extremely curious…. Roberta is still with that extreme sports guy or she was as of April 17 per his twitter. His name is Jeb Corliss. They seem to have an exciting life…. like I said before I’m totally jealous! I’m just not brave enough to do what they do!

@chelle: BASE jumpers/extreme sports people have fascinated me, because it’s interesting but I’m just not enough of adrenaline junkie to do something like that.

“Roberta is still with that extreme sports guy or she was as of April 17 per his twitter.”

Yes, but that was before Coachella, and she met AS, and they squished ‘a few months’ into two weeks. Also, what would he know, he’s just her boyfriend, it’s not like the much more accurate ‘source’ for a reporter!
/snark

@ladybug: He’s one smooth operator then……. got em coming out his ears!!!

Cafélady @ 05/04/2012 at 6:29 pm

@mforman: #82 Thanks for your warm words. It (my personal situation) is far away from it to be perfect, but I’m working on it…lol
I hope also all is well for you.
I really don’t know whether I can read the “50 Shades” books in the next time, because I still have to read a lot of other stuff. For instance, today I’ve got my recently ordered issue of “dead reckoning”. :) (It came together with the “melancholia” dvd btw. – yippeeh)…:))

Cafélady @ 05/04/2012 at 6:34 pm

@ladybug: **” I’m impressed by his ability to pack lightly.”**

lol…I’ve heard something about it, that apparently men often have this talent…:)

@TEXAS SWEDE: #132 …lol…and I thought always it would been the women who are the multitasking talents/masters…lol ;)

@Cafélady: Yeah, packing is easier for guys.

New pics from TB S5 (no new ones of Eric):

Whycantipost @ 05/04/2012 at 8:04 pm

The skydiver woman was also at Coachella and she was sitting next to him at the poolparty in a white bikinitop. There is also a photo of Alex laying on the grass while a blond girl with a hat and a girl with a fringe bikini pose next to/behind Alex. Those are her friends. Tbh, they seem more like famewhores, there is no pic of Alex actually interacting with them, just them showing up in his photos. I’ll try to find links:)

Lucy Griffiths looks fab in the stills, she is really pretty, love her eyes and her Angie jolie lips.
I am actually interested in her character and think she might bring some interesting story line to the show.
I hope lucys career really takes off after TB and gives her some world wide recognition : )

The rest of the stills just don’t Interest me :(

Whycantipost @ 05/04/2012 at 8:08 pm

And I’m being moderated when I post links.. Anyway, for those interested in the pics, look at the latest topic on Askars on thepurseforum, page 154.
Post is somewhere in the middle of that page:)

Maybe those girls were hoping for a chance as Alexander girlfriend and there hopes got dashed, I don’t like FAMEWHORES, or it is all perfectly innocent.

There is an interview he did with a Swedish, Stayhard mag on TPF where he discussed being able to single out users, he did a poor job kb was a user

here is one of the quotes the full interview Pg 150 TPF, it’s very Intresting

The more popular Alexander becomes the more women want to be his friend – and girlfriend. But if you ask him about his love life he shuts down like a shell. This is something he wishes not to discuss with journalist
- There is a lot of false things in LA. A lot of people want to be a friend with a celebrity. I pay attention and I can see very quickly if somebody
only wants to be friend with me just because I´m popular. I like to meet new people but I find out very soon if they only want to hang around with me so I could take them with me to fancy party or premiere.

@Whycantipost: Moderating the links, sometimes it doesn’t like more than 2 links per post (and even then may not actually link them)
