Alexander Skarsgard Covers 'GQ Style Australia'

Alexander Skarsgard is smoldering on the cover of GQ Style Australia‘s Spring/Summer issue, on newsstands this Monday (September 3).

Here’s what the 36-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On comic-con: “There was a motorcade from the hotel in through the garage and up into the building…[screams were] deafening.”

On his experience in the military: “We were out in the woods in the middle of the winter for 10 days. We didn’t really have any food or any sleep. It got to a point where people started to hallucinate and, you know, talk to their weapons. And cry. There was a moment where you’re, like, ‘I’m gonna die in five minutes.”

    A very good weekend ahead after seeing these..very good indeed!

  • Sara

    Oh come on…you were never in any real danger. It’s not like you did any foreign service or anything.
    “Experience in the military”. Asså patetiskt att vara 35 och fortfarande snacka om lumpen!

  • Klaus Van Lagerfeldt

    I like his hair, very similar to mine. Lol!

  • herewegoagain

    AS goes to his standard puppy dog eyes and arm cross pose. He looks so worried. Liked his GQ germany much better.

  • sweetness

    sexy

    @Sara: Well, he’s noted that in many an interview, that Sweden’s been neutral for hundreds of years and it’s not like he was going to be protecting them from an invasion and he wasn’t in a branch that does peacekeeping.

    But this, at 19: We were out in the woods in the middle of the winter for 10 days. We didn’t really have any food or any sleep.

    Yeah, you probably think you’re going to die, no matter what military you’re training for.

  • blue

    He looks incredible on these pics :) I like his hairy chest and hands … very manly …

  • freya

    @Sara:
    varför är det patetisk, han bara svarade på en fråga?
    och jag har hört av vänner att vinterlägret är det tyngsta de har varit med om någonsins förutom att tjäna utomlands.

  • Rachel

    He’s a beauitful people (inside and out).

  • cami

    he looks like he’s in pain

  • Mo

    @freya: Det var säkert jättespännande och en riktig livserfarenhet. Säkert en grej man snackar mycket om med polarna liksom. Men det var ändå en väldigt kort period i livet, inte sant? Känns löjligt att han ska ta upp det i så många amerikanska intervjuer som om det vore nånting unikt. Speciellt med tanke på att USA är ett land som faktiskt ÄR i krig, och har haft tusentals dödade soldater i dessa krig. Att då ta upp 10 dar i svenska lumpen känns skrattretande, tycker jag.

  • Addie

    God he is gorgeous. I swear he was carved by angels.

  • Yoki

    He is such a man!!!!!

  • Polly

    Overrated

  • lia

    ” aaaaaaaaaaah *_* ” as usual

  • Anna

    His silly face cover is horrible.

  • Raven

    He smoulders. Hotter then ever.

  • mlllllllllllle

    Okay that man can be reaaaaally attractive in True Blood, okay….okay…

    But this picture is the worst I ever seen of a man in my life, WTF, it’s like he is begging for some Nuttela..lol

  • ladybug

    @Mo: He was probably responding to a question, the same questions he gets all the time. And he was referring to the training itself. As I already commented, he’s mentioned before he knows it’s not as if he was in actual battle or at war. But that doesn’t mean the training wasn’t difficult.
    Let’s throw you into the woods, never mind in winter, without little food and sleep deprivation and see how you feel at the end of it.

  • hmmmmmmm

    I love you AS but you look so worried, scratching a strange itch, just hear some really bad news or all three on this cover. The biceps are banging though. LOL.

  • Mo

    @ladybug: I find it amusing that people are so protective of him. I’m not saying it wasn’t tough but I am saying it was for ten days, 17 years ago and he should stop answering questions about it as if it was a bigger deal than it was.

  • ladybug

    @Mo: Not a matter of ‘protecting’ him.
    What’s he going to say: I’ve already talked about that in countless interviews, bored now? He’s not that type of interviewee.
    We should be happy the interviewer apparently didn’t ask about lions as an Eric inspiration and being naked.

  • Strange

    Gorgeous!~~Super sexy!! ~~~~ Very hot !!!

    Not the best cover, but the rest of the shoot is good. People are always going to bring up his military training to him, he’s good enough to answer the question. I wouldn’t want to do ten days in a Swedish winter!

    We should be happy the interviewer apparently didn’t ask about lions as an Eric inspiration and being naked. Because he would have answered those, though the ‘bored now’ response would have been appropriate as well.

  • Bumblebee

    My god ! We needed these pictures especially after the Hidden set ones! puppy dog eyes indeed!

    I hope we get to learn something new at least in this interview. They just ask him the same questions over and over again.

  • hmmmmmmm

    @Mo- I agree sometimes people are a bit too sensitive, defensive and overprotective here but in this case I think he gets asked this question because of the Battleship promo (DVD etc) and sometimes us AS fans who read everything under the sun about him forget that promotion is done in different markets around the world. Saying that I do think he does play too safe in his interviews but sometimes does let out a gem or two now and then.

  • Smile dude please

    What the hell is wronge with his facial expression???? is he in so much pain sitting on that chair? Must he a hard life earning millions, getting front cover shoots , shagging half of HW 21 yr old models/actress living in upscale west HW, driving a nice porshe expensive clothes/designers and still gives a shit expression with boring same answers to questions ……..”………”………”……..”"…….

  • just saying!!!!

    Jared, you little darling little man; spoiling us like that. We are so spoiled to have these posted. aah *sights happily and goes back on the pics*

  • ladybug

    @Smile dude please: Bring that complaint up with the photographer and the photo editors, we’ve been asking for happy/goofy Skars photoshoots for awhile now. Maybe if he does a comedy we’ll stop getting Broody Skars photo-shoots.

    @hmmmmmmm: I think one of the Australian tumblr sites mentioned this during his Battleship promo-he’s not as well known there and so some of of the questions are going to be repetitive for everyone else who’s read other interviews. And repetitive for him.
    Maybe by next year we’ll have moved on from the military service/lion/naked etc. questions. Maybe.

  • danielik

    @lizzie: Alex is beautiful here! About cover, it´s not his guilt, it´s editor´s choice.

  • Tanter

    @Mo: De frågar alltid samma fråga. Du är naken i TB, din far en skådespelare, dina bröder är skådespelarer, saknar du at väre hemma, är Eric så dålig kille, var det svårt att komma till Hollywood bla bla bla. Vad skulle han säga? Han kommer uppenbarligen inte att säga något om hans personliga liv, så detta är den typ av intervjuer vi får med honom. Tråkigt ja, men också tråkiga frågor. Han måste sälja en produkt så vi får inte några avslöjande intervjuer med honom, tror jag.

  • Lilla

    Well hello there chest & biceps!

  • ladybug

    TV Guide Magazine: Will Anna be back full time right away after the birth of her twins in November?
    Ball: She is. We’re moving production to January to accommodate her. And there will only be 10 shows next season partly because of Anna and partly because of the economics.

  • lord

    only 10 episodes next season is BS especially if S6 will be the last one. this season i only started paying attention to the last 3 episodes

    i just hope this means they will cut out the stupid side stores. ie the Alcide story lines

  • Sarah.

    Awesome pictures! ..except for the one they choose for the cover

  • ladybug

    @lord: That’s what other sites are saying, they could get it down to 10 without sacrificing the main stories, so less wolfpack, and perhaps Terry and Arlene can go back to being normal and proving comic relief in small doses.

  • Cafélady

    What in hell has everyone against this cover picture?? I love it!! It looks somehow invitingly, to sit down on his lap – especially with this look of him…;) LoL
    ..and I love it too, that he doesn’t shave his chest and arms like so much other HW types…this simply belongs to him…

    As for the interview; I guess if they can’t ask him something private – then it’s normal that some questions will be asked again and again. I suppose there exist probably many more no-go’s like political topics, opinion about other actor/actress colleagues, directors; current social incidents etc. The risk to be false interpreted or cited is simply too big (as we sometimes could observe already in the past) – so what is left?

  • Cafélady

    …ok, they could ask him at least once regarding art – as far as I know, they’ve never asked him up to now regarding his favourite pictures of famous art painter, for instance (Van Gogh? Dalí?) – and they’ve never asked him about his favourite architectural period…just two examples…

  • ladybug

    @Cafélady: Yep, no art, no design, could probably ask more questions about Hammarby, that would get him excited!, his favorite books, why does he wear a necklace with a chain held together by a safety pin, etc.

  • Next!

    Once in a while there is actually a writer that does their homework and asks good questions about Alex’s life. We got to hear about his love of whale watching and that same writer also gave us an excellent description of his facial expression and attitude when asked about KB. We also heard about his driving around Asia with friends when he was younger from a reporter from Japan (?). Seems like the European and Asian journalists ask the good questions. He answered all sorts of things when he did the European TB tour in Poland.If it is asked in the right way, he’ll answer it. Maybe with Maise coming out, he’ll get asked about becoming a father someday :)

  • hmmmmmmm

    @Next- His American Men’s Journal interview was good and the whole Aussie GQ hasn’t been posted yet so why do we wait and see.

  • A.

    So much photoshopping. He is so ugly!!!

  • lucyinthesky

    he looks like he’s hurt and I wanna hold him and say it’s gonna be ok so bad!

  • Jen

    Hello bicep! Ding dang, he is a yummy, yummy man! Wish I was in Van city right now!
