Alexander Skarsgard: Hollywood House Hunting!

Alexander Skarsgard flashes a smile while doing some house hunting with his associates on Friday (February 22) in Hollywood.

Last year, the 36-year-old actor bought a $1.85 million hillside home, but he seems to be looking for more real estate.

    He is jut so hot! Can’t wait for the movies and True Blood.

  • New

    New house, I am intrigued. He looks great lovely smile.

  • ladybug

    Well, if it’s actually for him, could be investment property. Or he could just be going along with his friends while one or both of them are looking at property.

    It’s Oscar weekend, here’s hoping we get some photos of him at pre and post Oscar parties, all suited out.

  • Keiko

    I wonder how the paps know what the celebs they photograph are doing. And how they find them. Like, how do they KNOW Alex was looking at properties? And how did the paps randomly come across him? Anyway, He looks wonderful, slender and lean. I like that sweater on him very much.

  • Ginger

    There are several ways they find out. Most of the time, their PR people call in “anonymous tips”. This happens because the star is promoting something – sometimes just themselves.
    Some Paps “celebrity hunt” meaning they drive around looking for famous folks and they follow them.
    Many times, when a celeb is out some place in public, like a restaurant, someone in the restaurant will call in the tip to pap agencies. A lot of random pics come from a called in tip. Some times the businesses look at it as an opportunity for free publicity.

  • ladybug

    @Ginger: Which is why knowing where the info on the house hunting came from wouldbe helpful, if it came from the pap, then he’s just probably making a guess. And if for some reason it actually came from his management or PR, I’m not sure why. He was able to quietly buy a house last year and the only reason we knew about it -months later- is because he mentioned it. Why start mentioning stuff like that now?

  • hmmmmmmm

    @ladybug- it may not be for living space. He maybe looking for production office space.

    OR LOL – too many swedes and no where to put them so he’s looking for his bros and buddies. :)

  • ladybug

    @hmmmmmmm: Entirely possible, but this is a JJ post, who knows how accurate the information is-could be he was just looking at offices, or houses converted to offices, and JJ (and Zimbio, since this phrasing is also there) ‘translated’ it into a personal home.

  • justine24

    someone nows what is his paycheck in hollywood movies? sorry for my bad english

  • Lawrence

    Alex has the sweetest smile. :)

  • chelle

    So nice to see him smiling… maybe we will get to see him all dressed up for some of the parties. ;)

  • aussiefan

    IMHO … I reckon he ‘s helping out his friends, cause he looks so happy and smiling a lot..if it was his personal stuff he ‘d look more guarded and private.
    Lovely to see him so happy :)

  • ladybug

    @justine24: The only salary we’re pretty sure about is for TB, and that’s two million, presumably before tax. While is salary now is probably very nice, it’s also probably not that high in comparison to other movie salaries.
    I’m also pretty sure he got a very nice paycheck from CK for Encounter and now Provocations.

    Per characteristicallyexuberant. this set of pics was tagged that they were out carpet shopping, not house shopping. That makes a lot more sense.

  • Keiko

    I just saw on another blog that these guys were shopping for a carpet. This makes much more sense than “house hunting”.

  • Keiko


    Oh sorry, @ladybug beat me to it.

  • Alex and Charlize

    Will Charlize Theron & Alex Skarsgard ‘come out’ as a couple at the Oscars?

    Here are some new photos of Alexander Skarsgard and Charlize Theron – not together! – yesterday in LA. Charlize was seen out with her adorable baby boy Jackson, and Alex was out in Hollywood, apparently checking out some real estate. I just thought it was interesting that Alex and Charlize were both out – separately! – at the same time in the same city. Maybe it’s the conspiracy theorist in me, maybe it’s because Alex
    and Charlize maybe-probably have a history of getting dirty together. The last time they were rumored to be hanging around each other was last November, when there were reports that Alex had flown to Namibia just to bang Charlize as she was working on Mad Max: Fury Road.

    So, are they still together? Are they friends with benefits? When they mate, do they look like a giant blonde spider? Will we find out for sure
    this weekend? Some undercover Hollywood couples choose to “come out” for the first time on Oscar weekend, arriving at some of the Oscar parties together in full view of the press. Will that be Charlize and Alex? Charlize is due to present at the Oscars, and Alex has come to the Vanity Fair post-Oscar party for the past few years, so they’ll likely be in the same place at the same time. Watch for Viking Dong News!

  • Cadulech

    Serious why the scandal if he goes hunting for a house? maybe the last one wasn’t exactly what he wanted and want see more.
    So deep i do want that JJ info is right and is more likely a house hunting but now this house won’t be know public.
    Also there is nothing better than see Alex with his smile.

  • Cadulech

    I heard other rumours seem Charlize Theron old love interest Prince Philip is going to be in the Oscars.I believe Charlize Theron will be dating the swedish prince and be a swedish Princess while Alex will be dating someone else.

  • Cadulech

    Now i sound like a troll :) still i am waiting for more models/actresses rumours.
    About Prince Philip be in the oscars i don’t know,that Charlize Theron wanted date them well i saw her very interest with him and Prince Harry.I do believe she want to be royal.Alex dating someone else: No doubt,maybe tomorrow (not in the oscars) but he will.

  • Cadulech

    *Alex dating someone else: No doubt,maybe NOT tomorrow (not in the oscars) but he will.

  • Keiko

    The Alex/Charlize story is so bizarre. They’re not together. It’s unlikely they ever were together, even if they did go on a couple of dates. You know, DATING is about finding a partner. Just going on a couple of dates doesn’t mean that person is your partner. I personally think Lainey flat-out lied with the Namibia story. She claimed she had THREE sources who saw them yet there wasn’t one single photo taken with a phone nor even one single description of the supposed encounter seen by three people. It’s just a false story that for some weird reason is being kept alive a whole year after they were supposedly seen in a taxi/limo together, even though there’s been no a shred of evidence since then. I mean look at how Celebitchy is so bizarrely giving traction to this story with her random and out-of-the-blue post asking if they might “come out at the Oscars”. Come on, this is just embarrassing blogging.

  • yes

    … maybe because the area on the pictures above don’t look like a place where Alex would want to look for a new house? It looks mostly like the place where are offices, shops, not like area where are comfortable, peaceful and pretty expensive homes …

  • Cadulech

    Ok :) sorry my mistake
    @ Keiko
    Yes,go out is not dating.At least not what i understand and/or europeans undertand specially swedish people.In my understand is when one is already in a relationship and for swedish is just like he did with KB (that they even live together,go shopping together,etc) and so far he was seen alone the whole time.

  • ladybug

    @Cadulech: I really, really doubt that he and KB ever lived together, despite what the Enquirer printed.
    Also, it’s not so much a ‘scandal’ if he’s looking at another house, but the info seemed so very off-Mr. Private is going to be papped looking at houses? He manage to buy the one he has now without anyone knowing about it for six months, and that was only because he talked about it. And, as already pointed out, that’s not a residential area. Whatever was the pap smoking to come up with house hunting? Our objection was that the info seemed so off from the very beginning.

    @Keiko, this was mentioned at the time that Lainey first published the story, that she’s lying. Or she was lied to. It’s odd, because she really doesn’t much pay attention to Alex, and didn’t seem to like CT, and she comes up with the Namibia trip? And if she was lied to, why, out of all the gossips, three sources talk the one gossip who didn’t seem to care about either one.

  • Cadulech

    Thank god i am not a HW actress,that life is so chaotic,superficial and with tabloids all the time.

  • Tanter

    Lainey also claims he’s bisexual. I wonder if she can keep track of what she claims about him..

    He could be dating anyone, including Charlize. The Italian actress who went to Sweden for NYE throws a spanner in the works on that idea for me. Personally I think he’s dating around, nothing wrong with that but I guess it makes for boring gossip..

  • Keiko


    Ladybug: have a theory about Lainey. She actually did used to be an Alex fan. If you are curious and have the time, I highly recommend you go back and look at her post on Bosworth just before the Alex rumors hit. That would be 2009. I will give this much to Lainey: she is a shrewd judge of character. Even before Bosworth got with Alex, Lainey was posting about how Kate steals boyfriends and Lainey wrote “she will try that with Alex too [note: he was seen dating ERW at the time] and he’d better not be so stupid as to fall for it”. I’m paraphrasing her exact sentence, but it was very close to that. I mean, Lainey CALLED IT. She also said that if Alex fell for that trick she [Lainey] would be done with him. She wouldn’t be able to respect him again. Sure enough, within a few months the gossip had started about Alex and Kate, and Lainey posted that she was basically disgusted that Alex stooped so low. After that Lainey has never posted ONE SINGLE NICE THING about Alex…and it’s been 3 years. Look at her random, pointless post on him from last week. She’s basically mocking him for having no movie prospects coming up. She’s mocking him for only being wanted for a Tarzan movie. Note how she says “Guess who else did a Tarzan movie” and she listed some C-list nobody. She’s comparing Alex to a C-list nobody. She is a real b*tch. The way she treats Alex on her blog it’s like he personally betrayed HER. Yeah, Alex went off the rails by being with Kate, but that’s no reason to mock him, try to make him look stupid, and then use a blog to circulate out-right lies. Also, remember it was Lainey who spread the gossip about Alex and that Swedish actress…I’m blanking on her name…the one who was in Anna Karenina. Lainey herself claimed to have seen them with her own eyes. She claimed to have seen them gazing with sex eyes at each other. She claimed they left together and that she saw them leave together. Turns out, Alex wasn’t dating her either. He’s known her for years. Lainey lies, lies, lies about Alex because she hates him for dating Kate Bosworth.

  • Eva

    For me I doubt Alex is looking for any long term commitment/serious GF at the moment he’s career is taking off at a steady pace I suppose he would want to work at his career more than settling down.

    However Joel kinnaman and Olivia munn seem to be going very strong and its working out well for them they were spotted hitting up some pre Oscar parties Friday
    I thought they woldnt last , at least Joel holds her hand and acknowledges her publicly they seem happy .

  • Keiko

    I looked for the article I mentioned, a little bit, but I don’t have lots of time right now. However, to back up what I said about how Lainey turned so hateful against Alex once it was confirmed the Kate rumors were true, here’s a link. LOOK AT THE VERY LAST LINE.

  • Keiko


    They really are going strong. And I remember when they were first rumored all the Alex and Joel fans called Olivia “Kate 2.0″. Turns out, Olivia is nothing like Kate Bosworth.

  • ladybug

    @Cadulech: It doesn’t have to be, though. There’s a certain element of that gossip/attention that will be there if you become famous, but a great deal of successful actors and actresses seem to be able to do their job, maybe get a little attention from the press, and still have a fairly normal life.

    @Tanter, the Italian actress story was bs as well, the source for that isn’t any more reliable than the Enquirer.

    I suspect for the last 20 months or so he’s be casually (and privately) dating around-though not with Anne V, or the Italian Skydiver or Elizabeth Olsen.

    @Keiki, Lainey’s a fickle, grudge holding person. But she’s blown hot and cold with Alex since the end of the KB relationship. She’s occasionally been warmer toward him, and then comes the Tarzan piece. Which is why the CT bits are out of character, because she really seems to like the idea of them together.
    As for the Alicia Vikander Comic-Con bit, she really went off the rails on that one. She seemed to have a girl-crush on her. Which is fine, but it didn’t mean Alex was dating her-I think someone else was able to confirm that he didn’t leave that party with just her, but with others of the Swedish/Scandinavian Posse that were there.

    Lainey’s very good at picking out famewhores, but sometimes she’s way off on a lot of other things.

    @Eva, I do think that’s part of it, he hasn’t met anyone he wants to be serious with, and therefore isn’t. He’s enjoying his life and isn’t hearing some internal clock telling him it’s time to settle down and produce more Skarsgards.

  • Cadulech

    I do read she was very in her emotions rather profesional LOL read the tags: Alexander Skarsgard,Famewhores XD and Kate Bosworth.

  • hmmmmmmm

    I thinking more that these guys maybe interior decorators and he just now beginning to get his house together. Whew, I am spending way to much time on this. LOL.

    Oh and Alex iron that sweater man. :) Hope we get pics of out and about Oscar events.

  • ladybug

    @Keiko: Amazingly enough, Olivia really toned down her famewhoring. I’m impressed.

    Sometimes Lainey is very interesting when she writes about the business side of things. But even then, I still have to wonder, how much is really accurate?

    @hmmmmmmm: once I read that it was probably carpet buying, that’s what I thought, they’re helping him decorate/design etc. They’re probably telling him, ‘Alex, it’s very hard finding anything else to coordinate with the Hammarby banners’

    I don’t think the sweater needs ironing so much as it needs delinting.

  • Macy

    Lainey actually didn’t write the article on him and the Tarzan movie. If you look at it closely, it’s one of her guest writers who wrote that article.

  • ladybug

    @Macy: I don’t get that impression, since usually that’s at the lefthand side near the top, it says it’s posted by Lainey.

    Lainey’s in LA, attending the parties, from her Twitter:

    Elaine L. @LaineyGossip

    Why do I always forget how tall Alexander Skarsgard is. He said “excuse me” with a polite nod as he walked by. #greygoose #oscar

  • Keiko


    Thanks, I hadn’t noticed. Still, it’s Lainey’s blog and Lainey approves. And another writer making Alex look like a moron and a C-lister certainly fits the Lainey profile.

  • Keiko


    “Why do I always forget how tall Alexander Skarsgard is. He said “excuse me” with a polite nod as he walked by. ”

    Wow, she’s got some nerve. She publicly lies (and, in some cases, smears him) about this man profusely, with the most outrageous and totally manufactured bullish*t and then smoothly mentions that he politely nodded at her. Bizarre. It’s amazing how duplicitous liars can be and how easily they compartmentalize their morality.

  • Macy

    Ah, I got mixed up when I saw the name Sarah in the article. Sarah had done a few career articles on actors, and since it said it was a submission, I thought it was hers.

  • Tanter

    More from Lainey’s twitter – this little gem: Made a decision: Joel Kinnaman >Alexander Skarsgard. #greygoose #oscar

    I really wonder why she’s so negative towards Alex. If it’s all about Kate or not..

  • Keiko


    See? It confirms what I wrote before. She’s nasty towards him and tries to make him look stupid and insignificant with her random comments. I really do think it’s about Kate. Maybe Lainey had a more serious crush on him than she let on about and that’s why she took his relationship with Kate so seriously. I have to admit, it downgraded him for me, too. Because I stupidly thought he was different. Because I believe in art and talent and that great movies CAN still be made and that there are artists out there who are real people and are really in the business for integrity and art, and not just money and having sex with skinny dumb b*tches. That’s who I thought he was. I thought he was one of those “better than the others”. Until Kate. Yeah, I understand. But holding a grudge and talking about him cruelly 3 years later?? That’s a fixation.


    LOL IDK, that seems a bit extreme. I know quite a few truly awesome people, including my best friend in the world, who’ve had relationships with people I didn’t like, or didn’t have much respect for. It happens, for a variety of complicated reasons.
    As for Lainey, I don’t see what’s surprising in her behaviour. I wouldn’t expect anything different from someone who makes a living with gossip.
    Who the hell cares what she says anyway?


    Got this , fan forum ,really? No more models plze Alex their is more to life than fricken models models models blonde blonde blonde …………………………

    A lot of tall blonde model types are standing around waiting to be led to Alexander Skarsgard #greygoose #oscar party.
    11:21 p.m. – Feb 23, 2013 ·

  • yes

    Very slightly, you have to try more, because it’s all boring …

  • excuse me???

    Sorry what?
    @No more model. What again. Sounds more like a bordello than a oscar party. Waiting around to be led by him what does that mean?

  • HW

    Is there somewhere in your contract when you sell your soul to HW that you have to be paired up with a model that is most of the time hungry looking and half your age. Seriously. God I hope Alex next GF wouldn’t be a model so f*** predictable and common place and so 1990′s

  • JHC


    why did you do that? LAIR this was the original tweet from lainey.

    A lot of tall blonde model types are standing around waiting to be led to Leo and Bradley Cooper at Weinstein #greygoose #oscar party.

    Led to Leo not Alexander JHC you creeps are so creepy making up stuff all the time and your so stupid not to see that your lies are so obvious.
    Just wanted to add I don’t know what the appeal his for Leo to be honest he looks rough and not in a good way and his body needs to go to the gym and get a proper work out.

  • Ugh

    AS waiting for modals I didn’t think he was like that I n the tweet. must be a Hollywood contractual thingy when you become an actor you have to date tall, slim very attractive women, forget about persoanlity that dont matter Anything without that description forget about being taken seriously .so diisaponited with that tweet another certain type again Alex when will actors learn …

  • JHC


    Did you read my post IT WAS NOT ABOUT ALEX IT WAS ABOUT LEO!!
    the poster lied he/she just change Leo’s name to Alex’s name to start trouble.

    Again the poster lied it was Led to Leo not Alex. This is one of the reason why you shouldn’t believe everything you read.

    I don’t don’t get the attraction with Leo he is like the pillsbury doughboy but not as cute as he use ti be. I don’t get the actor model thing either so f** cliche. Like Weinstein and his wife, without the money no way she would marry him.

    Olivia is a big s/lut. And a perv too.
