Alexander Skarsgard: RomaFictionFest Closing Ceremony!

Alexander Skarsgard: RomaFictionFest Closing Ceremony!

Alexander Skarsgard suits up for the 2012 RomaFictionFest closing ceremony held at Auditorium Parco Della Musica on Friday (October 5) in Rome, Italy.

Earlier in the week, the 36-year-old actor attended the fifth season premiere of True Blood at RomaFictionFest with his co-star Kristin Bauer.

Alexander recently spoke to The Wall Street Journal about the difference between shooting True Blood and making a short film for Calvin Klein.

“This [Calvin Klein short film] was different on one level because there’s no dialogue. That was a cool challenge of telling a story with no words. But that’s what I love about this job. One day you are covered in blood shooting True Blood and the next day you are doing this. I just wrapped this film in Vancouver called Hidden about a family in a bomb shelter. So from this to like dirty bomb shelter with rats and smoke and soot and fire, that’s what so great about this job,” Alexander shared.

    @Macy: Fake tweets are on the same level as the gossip rags who make up stuff. Or on the same level as thumb trolls.

  • Macy

    What I don’t get is how these people think that nobody will catch on. It’s pretty easy to see that a twitter account doesn’t exist, or those tweets were changed when the person types them on here. Why bother?

  • mforman

    @Macy—I think they just like to see what kind of reactions they can get out of us. The things they make up are getting more and more ridiculous. I mean the things they are writing is beyond silly.
    I wish they could just leave us alone to enjoy the photos that we get and the truthful comments about him and his upcoming projects.
    AS is such an amazing actor and of course he gets more handsome with each new post.

    @Macy: Maybe because they’re the sort who actually believe everything they read?

    “Dressed with a Bite [Translation of Alexander in Café, October 2012]

    With his distinct sense of style Alexander is an exotic element in the garish Hollywood – a formidable bearer of Swedish fashion in the world.

    It’s not easy to get a hold of Alexander Skarsgård. If he’s not in the studio playing a vampire he’s in Vancouver and shooting a feature film. The time left over he spends on the brand “Alexander Skarsgård” – ad campaigns, cover shoots for the world’s most glamorous magazines and charity efforts for his beloved Hammarby IF. His face (and body) can now-a-days be likened to stock rushing up the market.

    The fashion houses that want to be associated with the Swede are many, but today only the biggest brands that can afford to buy his services and had he not been so humble he’d probably quote Jay Z’s famous words “I’m not a business man – I’m a business, man”.”

  • Macy

    Except they aren’t really reading that. They’re just making up random sh*t. LOL!

  • Disney Villainess

    So predictable.

  • Canuck

    @Macy: Yes, but they think everyone else is like them. If it’s in print, everyone will believe it.

  • ladybug

    @Canuck: You mean you’re can’t believe everything you read on the internet? :)

    and is some troll name stealing DV? Because there’s something off about that comment.

  • Intresting

    I found this bit Intresting from the article

    You’ve bought a house in LA now. Do you think you’ll stay here?
     ”I don’t know. I don’t know what will happen after True Blood, which is shot here. I’m here in Los Angeles for seven months a year – and travel five. Before I’ve shared a house with someone, or rented something. I stayed at a hotel for five months and then moved in to a friend’s guestroom, but after that I just couldn’t take it anymore. I needed a base somewhere in the world, a home where I could unpack my bags.”

    It sound to me like the living with SOMEONE might or could have been Kate, no one wants to believe it, but I believe he was living with her temporary basis just like she does with all her bfs moves them in

  • Macy

    True enough.

    That’s what I presume, because DV isn’t normally like that. I love how I always get connected to mforman, yet we’re nothing alike in tone or opinion. Jesus, talk about tiring! I must be extra interesting or something to get chosen to be pointed out all the time.

  • Macy

    Could be, or it could be before he started renting in the Hills before TB and he had the money to rent his own place. He’s talked about sharing crap hole places with friends before. I still think he lived out of a suitcase at friends after he bought this new place due to renos, because he was photographed with a design mag, but I guess we’ll never know that either.

  • ladybug

    @Intresting: As Macy said, could be. But despite Enquirer reports to the contrary, I think he was renting then, not really living with KB. And he’s lived in LA for many years, so the living with a friend part could have been at anytime, especially at the beginning when he had little or no money.

  • Macy

    True enough, and especially when the BB interview went out of its way to state that he lived alone and had rented that house for awhile. So did hers actually. It seemed they made a point of mentioning that.

  • ladybug

    @Macy: It did seem like the interviewer went out of his way to mention that.
    Either way, he’s got his own place now, to do with as he wishes. So if he wants to paint everything in Hammarby colors, he can do that.

  • ladybug

    @Macy: I’d also like to mention that you and mforman have the exact same writing style, it’s very hard to tell you apart. :)

  • Missy

    Has he ever lived with a girlfriend? In Sweden did he live with that on/off girlfriend?

  • Canuck

    @ladybug: yep for the troll.

    :)) for the rest

  • Macy

    Pffff, you nerd! LOL. Ah well whatevs.

  • Macy

    BTW I was just teasing you, in case someone jumps down my throat. Yes though, I agree that the interviewer made a specific choice to mention that and elaborate on it.

  • xyz

    @Missy: I don’t know, but I’m guessing he probably did live with her. (Sara Tun) I understand it’s pretty common in Sweden to live with your significant other.

  • A Friend of TS

    Texas Swede passed away Sunday afternoon. She had left a list of things for me to do and posting here was one of them.

    She ask me to tell you she enjoyed the communicating with fellow Alex fans and she appreciated all the good wishes she received. She fought the cancer as hard as she could but it finally won out.

    I want to thank you for giving my friend a place to go and talk to people when she could no longer get out and go.

  • Strange

    @A Friend of TS: I am so saddened right now . My thoughts and prayers go out to her family & friends . I will miss reading her blogs on one of my favorite stars Alexander Skarsgard . She was the best and will be greatly missed by me . RIP Texas Swede !!! Thanks so much for letting us know . .

  • §

    @A Friend of TS:
    Oh my God… Im so sorry to hear this sad news.Please accept my heartfelt sympathy on the passing of your friend Texas Swede. RIP TS; I will personally miss your posts around here.

  • ladybug
  • mforman

    @A Friend of TS—Thank you for letting us know this sad, terrible news. I am sorry for the loss of your friend, who many of us considered to be a friend as well.

  • Strange

    Alex is in Sweden . According to post of fans saw him there on the subway .

  • http://askarsgardlover Wendy

    Thank you A Friend of Texas Swede for letting us know, that is so sad and I am so sorry for you and all of her family.

  • Cafélady

    @A Friend of TS: Oh no…I’m so sad to hear this about TS. — And I’m sad and I’m so sorry for you -a Friend of TS- and her family and all her friends for this loss. Thank you, that you let know us others here what happened.

    It’s difficult for me to find the words…I’m really sad…I only knew her via this site and our postings here, but from what I could read from her in her posts, I’ve got the impression that she really was a interesting, thoughtful and adorable person who I have considered as a good friend – even if we knew each other only via the net.

    Aside of Alex himself as thread-topic, she was one of the reasons why I have visited this site. I enjoyed her comments and our little virtual talks here very much – I will never forget her. And every time when I will visit AS posts here again – I will truly miss her a piece.

    Good bye, Texas Swede.

  • Canuck

    @A Friend of TS: I’m so sorry to hear that she lost her battle to cancer. :(. Thank you for letting us know, we’ll miss her.

  • Macy

    @A Friend of TS:
    I’m so sorry to hear that! Thank you for letting us know. She fought long and hard, and she will be missed by many!

  • A FRIEND of TS

    She also wants to let you know that she always posted under different names. But the one that she liked the most was TEXASWEDE. Here is the list:
    1)Texaswede 3)hmmmmmm 5)Tanter 7)Disney Villianess 9)bonnie
    2)Crew Member 4)bloom 6)Sarah. 8)anne 10)Jas and Pita

    11)Molly 12)Average Jane 13)Whycantipost 14)STOP the Troll
    15)concerned 16)maria 17)Tove, just too many to list.

    She wanted to apologize for the confusion. She also wanted to apologize to Kate Bosworth. TS wrote a lot of negative posts about K.B. She regrets everything that she wrote about K.B TS only cared about Alex and wanted the best for Alex. TS believed despite the fact that he is not all what he seems. Alex is still special. Thank You!

  • fyathyrio

    @A FRIEND of TS: What a cruel thing to say about the departed. I don’t believe you are the real friend.

    I will miss TS post. She was a true fan and had some witty post. RIP TS. Your battle is over now. You will be missed.

  • §

    @A FRIEND of TS:
    Hummm… can you please elaborate when your saying and I quote: “TS wrote a lot of negative posts about K.B. She regrets everything that she wrote about K.B TS only cared about Alex and wanted the best for Alex. TS believed despite the fact that he is not all what he seems. Alex is still special.”?
    I just feel weirdly intrigued by this part of your comment.
    Either Way Thank you for letting us know.

  • ladybug

    @§: That’s a name stealer, I’m quite positive. And in this case is pretty disgusting, even for JJ’s trolls. And considering the content of the post, I’m going with a KB ‘fan’.
    She did switch names once, but fessed up to it. Interestingly, that name isn’t on that list. Some of those names I don’t even recognize, and the others don’t even have her ‘voice’.

  • §

    thought as much…didn’t recognize her style at all. Its actually very sad that someone will take advantage of someone passing for petty even ludicrous reasons. I didn’t personally know TS and I read alot her witty-in yourface-factual-objective comments around here and one thing I’m sure: she meant every word she wrote and she owned it. I’m just saying.

  • ladybug

    @§: The original comment was posted at 4:30. And has since been reposted on KB’s thread-some 10 hours later, followed by cut and pastes of comment 83. So the signs say KB fan, throwing stuff against the wall and seeing what sticks.

  • Macy

    @A FRIEND of TS:
    Name stealing trolls are losers! Nice one. Disgusting!

    That’s terrible! And people say that we’re the bad ones. Good grief, who the hell does something like that?

  • amy

    This JJ site is so riddled with trolls. It’s no fun to come here anymore.

  • Has she really passed way :(

    Sorry I am confused ? as Texas swede past way ? If so my condolences to the friends and family and i would miss her thought provoking input to this site, may the angels watch over her in heaven :)
    or is this just some nasty troll spreading lies if it is I am disgusted and that is a lower form of life.

  • Blackcat9

    This news has really saddened me. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Texas Swede’s posts and like mforman said Texas was a brilliant, funny and warm (sorry to steal your words but they were so fitting). I would like to express my condolences to the family and I just cannot express how much TexasSwede will be missed and how sad I am to hear this news. You were REALLY, REALLY LUCKY to have Texas Swede as a friend.

    I apologize for the Kate fan who posted those other HORRIBLE POSTS! There is an old saying “Like attracts Like”.

  • Look it up

    Going by all the comments and tone here I feel we may have a case of Munchausen by Internet.

  • ladybug

    @Look it up: Oooh, a cute turn of phrase!

    Could Texas Swede have been a total piece of performance art, and not at all what was presented? Sure. But it’s also entirely possible that Texas Swede was as she presented herself.

  • ladybug

    And Alex is apparently getting away from it all in NW Sweden:

  • amy

    @ladybug: There’s another picture of him taken from behind in the same place. It looks like he’s with somebody, but it’s really hard to see. I have no idea. If he’s with someone, he’s hiding her very well.

  • amy

    I’m no relationship troll. I was just curious. I’m a new fan. Is he single at the moment?

  • renee

    @amy: He’s been linked to many people over the last while, but nothing has been confirmed. He’s very private. Been extra private since breaking up with KB. Maybe we’ll never know.

  • ladybug

    @amy: This one?

    Same place, almost same time, and he appears to be doing what he, and everyone else in the photo is doing, which is standing around waiting. I think the angle (and blurriness) is throwing people.

    I suspect that if he’d actually been ‘with’ someone one the person who tweeted that pic probably would have mentioned it.

    And yes, the odds are very strong that’s he single, and has been since the end of his relationship with KB last year, gossip rumors aside.

  • amy

    @ladybug: Yes, that’s the pic. It gives the illusion that someone is leaning up against the front of him, holding a plastic bag. But if you look at the other pic, there’s no one else in sight. It’s a mystery, anyways.
