Alexander Skarsgard: I'm Not a Sex Symbol!

Alexander Skarsgard: I'm Not a Sex Symbol!

Alexander Skarsgard suits up while attending a screening of his new flick Disconnect held at SVA Theater on Monday (April 8) in New York City.

The 36-year-old actor was seen posing with his co-stars Andrea Riseborough, Jason Bateman, Paula Patton, Jonah Bobo, and producer Mickey Liddell.

“Honestly, I don’t think too much about it,” Alexander recently shared about the intense True Blood fandom. “I think if vanity becomes a part of who you are as an actor…it’s important that you let yourself be true to the character.”

Alex added, “I’m an actor, not a sex symbol.”

FYI: Andrea is wearing the Karen London “Pharaoh Cuff”.

    Ok. But as an actor, you’re pretty nice to look at too. ;)

  • Tonya

    Yes you are.

  • wywh

    But you are, though.

  • Strange

    Hello again gorgeous !! Love you as a actor as well .

  • Lilla

    Oh Alex…does hot actor work better?
    On a side note, Paula Patton is gorgeous.

  • raph

    he’s absolutely right about that. He has massive bags under his eyes and a skinny fat body. He’s a decent actor but he is no sex symbol

  • Jane

    Ok, whatever you say…

  • Canuck

    Huh…he’s got a nice suntan. What’s going on with True Blood shooting?

  • Sara

    Great, now his comments are going to get taken completely out of context.

  • maría

    @Canuck: yes he ís tannig so what happen with eric i am starting to be worried about

  • Canuck

    @maría: Seems odd, alright.

  • Lind
    OMG!!!! That pic scares the hell out of me :( He doesn’t even look like a real human being! Are we sure he’s not a reptilian alien??? *i need a hug now*

  • Canuck

    @Lind: His eyes are an amazing colour.

  • Umm


    Are you sure you aren’t one?! Forget hugs take meds instead.

  • Cadulech


    Yep,Alex does have nice eyes :)

  • WilliamsG

    He looks absolutely horrible in that picture! Scary indeed.

  • Betty

    I don’t know what pic you guys are looking at but he is not skinny-fat, he has a very well-toned body. Just because he doesn’t have huge wrestler muscles doesn’t mean he’s not muscular. He has one of the best looking chests I’ve ever seen and his body looks athletic. Ain’t no fat on this hunk! As for the bags under his eyes, he’s had those since childhood. If you want to see bags and squinchy rodent eyes, look at Leo di Caprio.

  • ladybug

    @Canuck: The eyes are quite lovely.

    As for the tan, I’d noticed that, and not just with the pics from today. I have no idea what’s going on with that.

  • Canuck

    @ladybug: It should be illegal to be that attractive. ;)
    In addition to the tan, we don’t seem to be getting any info from the set or location shoots lately either.

  • Ellen

    Can you say jealous????

  • Cookie

    He is so sweet…although there nothing wrong with being a sex symbol, swoon….aaaaa

  • Macy

    It is interesting that he has a tan. Maybe he’s got a week or two off right now. It doesn’t take long for tans to fade. So he might be able to get rid of it if he has to film in a couple weeks.
    Andrea’s dress is awful.

  • Lara


    Skinny fat? You are so stupid. He has the best body ever.

  • Slinky the Cat

    Oh, the things he does to a suit. Not a sex symbol, eh? The melted panty trail he leaves behind when he walks down the street begs to differ.

  • maria

    @Lind: yes, perfect skin, silky blonde hair, incredibly beatiful grey eyes… not human.

  • Boo

    Tarzan’s not happening?
