    Does she really need to be referred to as Robin Thicke’s wife?

  • Keiko


    I know, right? And I don’t personally know anyone who listens to his music (myself included), so it’s not like that’s scoring some points. Is he really that famous??

  • ND

    Did he wear this same shirt to the GQ Men of the Year awards like two or three years ago? If he did and I actually remember that plus the fact that his hair was way shorter and really cute, it’s officially okay to kill me for being so pathetic.

  • Katty

    You could park a bus on that forehead…

  • Whycantipost

    He is back to being pale again xD How can he lose his tan so fast?:O
    Love the waiter posing for the pic too xD He looks a bit like Stuart Townsend.

  • ladybug

    @Yohji: It’s rather weird/annoying/offputting/sexist phrasing, isn’t it?

    @ND: he’s been photographed with that shirt/jacket combo even farther back: 2006.

    @Whycantipost: his vacation ended the beginning of December, so not that quick. It was basically gone by the time of the holidays.

    And he does a much better drunken giraffe red carpet post than most of the women who pose like that :

  • marce

    He should gain a little wait, he is too skinny

  • ladybug

    @marce: Actually, he’s not skinny. He’s naturally lean. He has to work out to get to Eric weight. Which I’m presuming he’s at or close to since they’ve been filming for nearly three weeks. It’d be easier to tell if he took off his shirt :)

    And JJ, per the Hollywood Reporter, the date of release is now April 19, not April 12, the date that’s been on the IMDB site for awhile.

    The film will be released in select theaters by LD Entertainment on April 19.

  • kula

    keep posting skargard pics please

  • Slinky the Cat

    Is it strange that I want to crawl up his legs and snuggle? Yes, it probably is.

  • yumyum

    @Katty: I wish I could park myself on that forehead.

  • Strange

    That man never has a bad picture moment . Totally hot in every shape ,form or fashion .

  • chelle

    @ladybug: Maybe between the 2 of us we can esp that to him and from now on in every photo he will spontaniously strip off his shirt….sounds like a great plan to me!!!

  • ladybug

    @chelle: I’m on board with that plan!

    Here’s a shot from Sundance, note that his arm appears to be nicely muscled, not skinny:

  • chelle

    @ladybug: Damn!! You made want to crawl in the screen!! Computer is going to short circut with the drooling..LOL!

  • ladybug

    @chelle: I’d say ‘sorry’, but I’m not! :)

    Perhaps you need some sort of drool guard for your computing devices?

    Sad thing is, after a week of all these photos and interviews we probably won’t see him again for a month.

  • Lawrence

    Hello Mr. Hot stuff!.

  • christie

    he’s been working alot lately – needs a vacation somewhere with a beach & lots of sun – now those are pics i’d like to see; )

  • ladybug

    @christie: Being serious, he just did that, he had a well-deserved three months off after finishing The Hidden, so really only been working since the beginning of January.

  • chelle

    @ladybug: for some reason he doesn’t strike me as the hanging on the beach type like fellow co star Joe. Maybe cuz we’ve never seen it?

  • Rina

    Alex looks good. It’s nice to see him at these film festivals promoting his projects and sharing them with the fans. I can’t wait to see both The East and Disconnect at my local theater.

  • Iris

    Alex looks tired, but I’d still hit it. Paula looks very pretty. The Moët guy looks like a hobbit.

  • Samantha Patterson

    @chelle: I think he’s said before in an interview that if they had to put on enough body makeup to not only make him vampire-pale but also cover a tan, it wouldn’t look good, especially when filming in hi-def, so he tries to stay out of the sun while filming TB. Joe’s character doesn’t have that issue, in fact I would think the more “outdoorsy” a werewolf could look, the better.

  • Cafélady

    @ladybug: #7 I think, it depends on it what he is wearing, whether he looks a bit skinnier or not. But at that time shortly after the ‘The Hidden’ project, had he actually lost weight there – and was a bit skinnier than usual. And even in this shirt that he wore in this pic (thanks for the link); one can see that he actually is very muscular. You can see that at his arms. Personally I like this more than a too bulky look.

    As for the shirt/jacket combo: I also remember that he wore this already, years ago. I love this fact, that he apparently has favorite pieces who he likes to wear for a few years and wear them again from time to time – especially if one knows that he obviously has a bit money to spend now. Soo likeable and down-to-earth!!

  • ladybug

    @chelle: Oh, I’m pretty sure he’ll hang out at the beach on occasion, we just don’t see those pics, I think there was one pic from two years ago from the group trip to Mexico with the ex. Which conveniently showed up in US Weekly.

    And I’m sure he hung out at the beach while in Antigua, though if there were any photos taken no fansite/Tumblr site posted them.

    @Cafélady, I think there are two reasons for the ‘he’s too skinny’ stuff I see on occasion. One, it’s possible people are basing that on how he looks for Eric, and especially S2 Eric, which was also the year he bulked up for Straw Dogs. That’s not his normal ‘real life’ look, he’s muscular but lean when he’s not working out for a role.
    Plus, as you wrote, depending on what he’s wearing, and what angle he’s photographed he may look skinnier but not be actually skinny.

  • Cafélady

    bb!skars – this is from 2003? To me he looks more like 20 here or even younger…LoL…;)…at least not like 27…

  • ew

    @Katty: and on those horrible womanly wide hips

  • lu

    his cheeks are melting

  • Mama-Gina

    He’s just as hot as his father. But he knows how to please women, and he uses the best gifts from Athena-Toys-Dot-com

  • Bulk


    No, He filmed Gen Kill BEFORE True Blood even started filming, he was slimming down from it however when he began.

  • fyathyrio

    @Bulk: She mentioned STRAW DOGS not GENERATION KILL. He filmed SD in between seasons of TRUE BLOOD and was bulked up for his role as Charlie.

    *BTW I have been unplugged and offline for a month and really enjoyed catching up with the post today. For all those who don’t like his forehead, the family trait of eye bags, his child bearing hips{LMAO at that one cause I consider them Child Producing hips}, or his sagging face, just forget about him and spend some time on something or someone you do like. That way there is more positive things those of us who like him can focus on. His talent for instance.

  • mforman

    With each new photo we get he just looks more gorgeous and delicious than the last time, if that is even possible.
    The fact that he wears things more than once just adds to his many amazing qualities and shows us how geniue and humble he is; he has favorites and likes wearing them, he isn’t buying into the HW way of disposing of clothes becasue the New Year has arrived.
    I am so glad he got to attend this fesitival as well and promote this film, what a year this is going to be for AS fans, I cannot wait for the premieres, way too exciting, it is about time we get to enjoy his acting in so many different roles and films.
    Yeah, to us the AS fans.

  • ladybug

    @Bulk: fyathyrio is correct, I referred to S2 Eric and SD, not GK. That would make it 2009, not 2007, which was when GK was filmed.

    He was nicely muscled in GK, but I don’t think he really lost much of the bulk for S1:

  • ladybug

    And here he is in S1, looking pretty bulky:

  • Party sighting

    Possible alex party sighting

    Alex spotted by several people (twitter/Instagram) saturday night at Moby’s home in Hollywood other a listers were there.

  • chelle

    @ladybug: OK you are seriously killing me! Hubby is away this weekend with his buddies and you are killing me with Skars porn! Not nice…Not nice at all…LOL!

  • Cafélady

    @ladybug: *sigh* …I was moderated yesterday – for whatever…I have no clue why, because I haven’t written something suggestively…(?!?*looks confused*). But I should’ve been warned, as Canuck recently told that she also again was moderated…for whatever…

    I answered on your post #23 and basically I said; as you wrote, yes he is muscular but lean. And that I don’t prefer men with a bulky body – less is more. I think, he has a good figure now, and isn’t too skinny.
    But the pic you showed in your comment #31; sorry, but I don’t think that this is from S1 – because the pic seems to be from a scene which he had with Jessica as a newbie (shortly after she was turned). That was -if I remember correct- in S2 not S1. In that scene with Bill and Jess (they were in Eric’s office) he wore still the long-haired wig.

  • Cafélady

    @ladybug: And I also said in my moderated post, that I’ve thought as I watched S3, that his body (especially the shoulder/arm area) looks here (in S3) a bit less bulky than in S2.

    @fyathyrio: #32 “For all those who don’t like his forehead, the family trait of eye bags, his child bearing hips{LMAO at that one cause I consider them Child Producing hips},….”

    Child Producing hips?? LoL I like this one. ;)) I never heard that before, that a man’s hips would be named as child bearing hips (or alternative: child producing hips)…LoL That phrase is usually for the woman, I thought – who haven’t a size zero figure, respectively who have a normal figure….:) …I should search for pics again, where one also can see this, just to check out this allegation…(*looks brooding*)…LoL ;))

    But aside of it, I agree completely with that what you’ve said.

  • ladybug

    @Cafélady: Nope, that’s S1, the wig only lasted a few minutes in S2, and was covered in foil. And then blood.
    It’s from To Love Is To Bury, episode 11.

    I think they have ‘de-bulked’ Eric, he’s still muscular, but not bulky.

    And these do not look like child bearing hips to me:

  • Cafélady

    @ladybug: Oh dear…dirt and ashes over me!! LoL ;) I guess, it’s time for a new watching of the entire TB season-episodes…now, where S5 is over (also in G). But I really thought it was from S2….but I believe you’re right. Like I said; I should watch the seasons once again in chronological order. Gave me a good reason! :)

    As for the pic: …no it doesn’t look like child bearing hips…definetely not. It looks… just hot. ;)) Child bearing hips or not…who cares, at this view??….

  • chelle

    @ladybug: Thanks alot!!! now I am offically in a coma

  • ladybug

    @chelle: Hah!

    Here’s the start of S5:

    I’d say slightly less bulky than S1.

  • Macy

    I’m glad he’s at the film festival. I’m also glad he wears the same outfits and doesn’t just wear something once and gets rid of it. That’s less pretentious I think.

  • ladybug
  • chelle

    @ladybug: If people think that’s birthing hips….wow! Now in my family, when a female has a child talk about getting birthing hipsand boobs get bigger which is 2 thing s I definately want to avoid!

    BTW thanks for that pic on # 39…to fine!!

  • ladybug

    @chelle: I think our troll is lacking a grasp of basic anatomy, eyesight, colloquialisms, and well, sanity.

  • naomy

    Beautiful sagging scrotums and cheeks, creepy watery beady rat eyes and child bearing hips, beautiful. Oh and let’s not forget the forehead. Yes this man is hot.

  • liz

    @naomy: well, to be fair he doesn’t photograph well, but he’s beautiful in motion.

  • naomy

    @liz: Nah, he IS a pear shape no one can deny that. and has a questionable face. He’s tall and blond I give you that.

  • naomy

    Aaaand his head is too small, odd proportions everywhere
