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.

@amy: I think he’s single. Didn’t he say so not too long ago? He strikes me as someone who might hook up with lots of women, but when it comes right down to it, is very picky about who he becomes serious about.

Bumblebee @ 10/12/2012 at 2:22 am

@janet
True. Unfortunately the girls he seems to get serious about, seems like a relationship where they make each other happy and unhappy. Like that girl in sweden and the last gf.
My older brother is like that. All his relationships with sweet girls never take off, and he is always attracted to women with a bit of darkness . Hes been married for five years to a girl , they seem to make each other miserable but some how cannot stay apart too. Baffles us but i guess diferent strokes for different people !

@Bumblebee:
humm… what do you mean when you’re saying: he is always attracted to women with a little bit of darkness”? You mean bad girls? Maybe in my language it sounds different , that’s why I’m asking…you really can’t judge a book by its cover hey. Is it just me or he has extremelly sad eyes. In his pics of the Roma event he seems so sad despite he was smilling and being dashing as ever; just an observation.

What puzzles me the most about that picture (#99) is: why is he the only one wearing just a T-shirt?

@amy: No, not a mystery, as you wrote, “it gives the illusion.” All it is is camera angles. You’re not the only one who’s ‘seeing’ this, but I think it’s ‘seeing’ something from nothing.

@just reading, that’s the first thing I noticed, actually. It’s in the 40′s where he was and yet he’s the only one in short sleeves. Goofball. I’m also presuming that perhaps his coat is in his checked luggage.

@§: He looked tired in Rome, but not sad, especially not during the fan photos.

When Bumblebee refers to ‘darkness’ she may be referencing this interview from 2010:

I”s he attracted to extreme situations? ‘Sometimes, yeah, but I also know I have to be careful because there is something destructive within me, I think, and I can have a tendency to just search for the kicks. I can’t really get too close to someone who’s too destructive, or too dark, because then I might go down the rabbit hole myself.’ ”

@ double s sign i cannot get on my ipad and ladybug

Not bad girls, maybe just bad for each other. Like i said, i have personal experience in seeing my brothers relationships where they cannot stay with each other nor can they stay apart from each other. You would wonder why they both dont get out of it, i mean isnt that what we would do, but something seems to bind them .
@ ladybug
Yes, but inremember another interview where he talked about his long on off relationship, maybe with sara tun? Sorry dont remember so cannot paraphrase it, but it was an interview where the interviewer mentions alex and he crossing some bridal party or something, and alex makes a remark.
I tnk he said something on the lines of that relationship being bad for each other but they were still on and off and it was very passionate .

Thats what i meant, and not that he is attracted to bad girls. Maybe just girls who have a bit of that darrk streak in them.
Like kb, dont want to sound mean cos i dont know her. But she went off the rails completely when she broke up with bloom especially and became so anorexic. Again, i dont believe in bashing her, but the poor girl looks so unhappy half the time.

Just once i hope he gets together with a girl who’s Positive with a fun outlook.

”It’s in the 40′s where he was”
That’s 40 degrees Fahrenheit, right? Sorry, I have to ask, because we use Celsius, so I had to calculate that ;)
Yeah, it’s cold, we have pretty same temperatures here in Slovenia too. It’s fall and I love it.

Haha, I think you’re right, he probably forgot to take his coat out of the luggage. Goofball, indeed.

@Bumblebee: For the bridal party you’re thinking of the Men’s Journal interview:

http://i1239.photobucket.com/albums/ff505/Jordan_Moon/Alex5.jpg

Two thoughts on that: he was probably being (mostly) sarcastic. But. he had finally ended one of those not-really-good-for-you relationships just a few months earlier.

As far as I know he’s never mentioned the Sara Tun relationship specifically, at least not in English language interviews, but he mentions the on-off passionate one in the Telegraph interview, but he’s mentioned it in other ones as well. I think it’s presumed that this is the ST relationship he’s talking about.

“Just once i hope he gets together with a girl who’s Positive with a fun outlook.” I’d add to that, someone who doesn’t need ‘help’, doesn’t need his fame, etc.

@ladybug

U r good, thats the interview i meant. Of course the bride maid heckling i knew he was being funny. But i gave that as a ref point . Cos i remember reading smething about him being in an on off long relationship where it was passioante but they were not good for each other . I thought it was in the same interview that had the bride party ref. But i guess its the Telegraph one.
Yes hes never mentioned sara by name, but as far as i know shes the one he had the 4 yron off relationship with. I know the other long term gf was joel’s sister, right? But was it for 4 yrs?
Lets hope hes successful in finding that partner for himself. Hes just starting to find success professionally in being recognised beyond true blood in Hollywood.
At the end of the day im a romantic who wamts him to get started on that half a dozen kids ! Maybe seeing him with onata kickstarted that feeling !

@just reading: Yeah, 8 degrees in Stockholm when he left and around 6 degrees in Ostersund. I do wish the US had converted to metric, it’d have been a lot easier.
Slovenija? Someday I’ll get there.

@Bumblebee, he’s mentioned the on-off 3 year relationship quite a bit in his earlier interviews, not so much now. I think both the ST and AD relationships were around 3 years.

I think it’s a good thing that he’s not rushing into another serious relationship. He shouldn’t be in a relationship just to be in a relationship, there are too many people-men and women-who do that.

@ladybug: I agree. He should just enjoy life, and it will come when it comes. He’s said before he’s not one of these people who has to be in a relationship all the time to be happy.

@fyathyrio: This is how I feel.:)

@FAKE PATHETIC ASS#58:……. Name stealing because I haven’t been on here in a while. And I’m glad no one responded to your wannabe copy-cat ass. The regulars on here know my sound and also know that I don’t come on here attacking anyone that doesn’t deserve it. Now go back to eating your luncheon loaf sandwiches, cheese puffs, and Red Bull like the obedient loser you are. This is exactly why I haven’t been on here, the pathetic neckbeards and “Jerri Blanks”with no imagination of their own can come on here and post ridiculous bullshit behind someone else’s established user name. F*CKIN’ COWARDS

Texas Swede never posted under my name. I’ve been the only one using this name. I haven’t seen anyone else using it. Whoever wrote that post about her was lying and trying to pull our legs. How awful and unnecessary.

@bonnie: We’re on a gossip site, so on occasion we’re not going to be nice. But name stealing is just extraordinarily juvenile, no matter what type of site you’re on. And name stealing in this case is both very sad and very vile.

bumblebee @ 10/13/2012 at 3:47 am

@ladybug
not just name stealing, but posting things knowing very well that the person has no way to defend herself, is downright pathetic.

This is precisely the reason people are so wary of Stans .

Another CK interview:

“Also, Swedes generally don’t show off. There are plenty of very rich people in Stockholm, but you aren’t going to see many pink Lamborghinis on the street or big fake mansions with fake Greek columns. It’s a culture where people don’t really talk about success. You strive for it, but it’s kind of frowned upon in Sweden to brag. Personally, it’s difficult for me to know why someone would care about what kind of sandwich I ate for lunch.

I’m not saying Tweeting is bad – it’s a great platform if you have an important message and a great way to connect, in terms of charitable causes or in politics. Just look at the Arab Spring. But I’m an actor. Do people care? I don’t – not about myself in that way. It’s so me, me, me.”

Regarding Texas Swede, we learned that TS supposedly passed away on 10/7 after battling cancer. See post 73. Macy confirmed it on 10/11 (how Macy would know is anyone’s guess). Post 34, under this topic: Kate Bosworth & Michael Polish: Australian Sight-Seeing Couple. However, on 10/5 two days prior to her “death” TS was posting comments. #30 under this topic: Kate Bosworth Tweets About Great Kiss. Most people on their deathbeds wouldn’t and more importantly, couldn’t, use up their tiny bit of remaining energy posting comments at JJ! In fact, they can barely open their eyes! Nothing happened to TS. This is something like her bogus posts about being on the SD sets. This too is bogus. You’ve all been punk’d.

@ladybug: “@Alex in London: He’s talking the long way home to Stockholm? Could be that he has friends there and is just visiting, no work involved.” Where does Lucy Griffiths live?

@Alya:
I’m gonna be straight forward here: what are you insinuating by that “quotation” comment? Just say what’s on your mind…

Akiva Goldsman’s ‘Winter’s Tale’ Sets Matt Bomer, Lucy Griffiths, Eva Marie Saint

Tags: Akiva Goldsman, Eva Marie Saint, Lucy Griffiths, Matt Bomer, Winter’s Tale

EXCLUSIVE: In his directorial debut, Akiva Goldsman continues to add to an already strong cast for Winter’s Tale. Magic Mike and White Collar star Matt Bomer, True Blood‘s Lucy Griffiths and Eva Marie Saint round out a film that stars Colin Farrell, Downton Abbey‘s Jessica Brown Findlay, William Hurt, Will Smith and Russell Crowe. The film, based on the Mark Helprin novel, is about a dying young woman (Findlay) who falls in love with a thief who breaks into her palatial home on the West Side of Manhattan, in a drama that takes place in 19th century and contemporary Manhattan. Farrell plays the thief and Bomer will play his father while Griffiths plays his mother.

Goldsman isn’t divulging the role Saint will play, as it is a pivotal plot point. The Oscar-winning star of such films as North By Northwest, she last appeared in a major movie when she played Martha Kent in 2006′s Superman Returns. Marc Platt and Michael Tadross are producing. Warner Bros begins production in Manhattan on October 27, and Goldsman has also tapped Caleb Deschanel to do cinematography and Hans Zimmer to do the score. Sounds promising.

@Bogus: We were not told how she died. Or how alert she was 2 days before. Let the woman go in peace. Whatever she did to you is moot at this point. The dead should not be disrespected.

I rarely post but I read daily. And people like you are the reason why.

@Bogus:
I didn’t “confirm” anything. I just stated the first post was a post from a friend of Texas Swede’s and the second one was an idiot using the same name trying to make a disgusting joke. As for how much energy she had right before her passing, you can’t possible know that and I don’t think it’s very respectful to bring it up or continue to debate. Let things rest in peace.

@Alya: If he and LG have been secretly dating all this time he should give up his acting career and go to work for the Swedish equivalent of the CIA, because as much attention as he gets I think it really would be hard to hide a romantic relationship for that long.

RETARDED!!! Clueless and stupid. They are out of touch with reality.
They truly are Askarloons.
