    @Music Fan: We’ll also get more pics/videos from this, since he was doing a press junket today. And apparently there’s another screening in NY on Tuesday.

    @Amanda, well, she’s not going go away anytime soon. Aside from co-writing/starring in The East, she also gets other acting jobs.

    @Amanda: Co sign. So much for solo interviews, this is going to be painful to watch. I might have a drinking game to make it easier, every time someone says ‘Amazingggg’, or ‘not preachy’ I’m going for it.

    Wow… Unbelievable.. My friend Emily has just married to a handsome wealthy black manThey met through ~~Mìхed Màtchìng.Çoм ~~Serious interracial dating is an ideal platform for afro romance for black & white singles. So, if you want to look for people with which you can date, you are at the right place.You can meet(lawyers,busy professionals, benefactors. models, celebrities, etc….)If you are single, perhaps you can have a try.

    Cadulech Says:

    Oh my mistake went back to the post i saw it and wasn’t about matching but something of cashing,still nothing to do with the famous person.

    @Cadulech: There’s a contact page here if you want to complain:

    But JJ and his parent company have decided that spam comments, and the like, are acceptable, since he’s stripped down the commenting system to the point where there aren’t even thumbs up/thumbs down to hid the spam comments.
    I’m pretty sure they have the wherewithal to get a new commenting system, they have chosen not to.

    And why would you even watch the interview when you are not a fan? You think your trash talk about Alex and his projects will make other TB guys more popular? Think twice. This f***tarded fandom has made me dislike those other actors very much or at least I’m very suspicious of them and don’t say it’s not their fault. I think there’s MUCH more than jealous fans beyond this smear campaign. If everyone can speculate about Alex’s true nature and call him liar basing their “opinions” on their own biased and delusional minds, those other players ain’t gonna get free passes either. Big question is, who’s people are these “trolls” who are constantly bashing Alex all over the internet. Hmmmm

    @Rob Server:
    Now this is a very interesting observation and question:
    Who are these “trolls” and what are their true purpuse behind this smearing of Alex reputation?
    There can be several answers to this. What do you think?
    I`m sure there is more to this than meets the eye. A hidden agenda.

    @Rob Server: Pointing out that he does say many of the same things in interviews (especially if it’s a lousy interviewer) isn’t necessarily a criticism. It can simply be an observation, and after all, he’s hardly the only one with a a script they follow when promoting something.
    And I’ll point out that he seems to have a limited wardrobe -which also isn’t a criticism, in fact it’s one of the things I like about him.

    However, there does seem to be an upswing in the amount of comments by people claiming to be fans but seem to do nothing but criticize him. And this doesn’t include the usual suspects of relationship trolls, Alex is a ‘fill in the blank’ trolls, etc.

    If you don’t like what they say, and don’t think they’re commenting ‘in good faith’, ignore them.

    And here’s another pic from yesterday’s press junket:

    Hmmm, am I detecting sarcasm here? “Hidden agenda” is a bit far fetched don’t you think? I don’t think there’s any conspiracy behind this “Bring him down off the pedestal and point all his flaws and errors out to his silly fan girls” -mission. Seems very clear to me who they are, especially considering there isn’t that much criticism towards the other TB actors… or even some other Swedish actors for that matter, Joel Kinnaman comes to mind or Skarsbros even. Wait! Maybe all those other guys are flawless and perfect in every way lol. It may be just a silly fandom “war” because what I’ve seen on the other forums and discussion boards the most of the criticism and nasty comments usually come from their camps. Also some fan pages seem to be a “bit” impartial in favor of the other TB male actors. Color me unsurprised if it turns out there actually are some publicists/pr ppl involved. As I’ve said/wrote before I’m basing my observations strictly to the fandom behaviour on internet ;)

    Alex’s name is becoming more stream people outside of the True Blood fandom know of him now thanks to the 3 movies he is in and CK.

    More attention means more people with differing opinions. They are not all diehard fans that love anything and everything Alexander it’s more a casual interest. More attention also means more trolls and haters.

    I would describe myself as a casual fan, but I do want to see Alex doing more films I think he is talented and has a quality about him.

    I think he could probably use this surge in popularity to land that breakout star role.

    For me I’d like to see him in a role similar to Colin Firth in the King’s Speech.

    I’d like to see him hold of the comedic roles or the romantic lead roles, not because I don’t think he’d be good at them, I just think he would be easily type cast and not be taken seriously. I think he struggles with that now with people thinking he is either dopey or just a pretty face.

    My last thought for now, I wish he would wear pants that fit and not sag off of him.

    Dear Ladybug, I didn’t criticise you or your comments. Even I can tell you are a real fan even if not wearing those notorious rose colored fan glasses, which are funnily enough allowed to the fans of the other actors in Alex’s circle, but not to the Alex fans, poor me *sobs*. My comments were aimed to those who make nasty comments about Alex’s persona and “true” colors and call him a liar without knowing him and his private life or even meeting him once. That said, I can’t help but I’m still bit confused why just Alex’s fans are so critical towards him? For what reason? How this bash… sorry criticism is gong to help Alex’s career? Why aren’t the other TB guys under this same scrutiny and criticism? Do the”fans” think Alex read these forums and takes notes? If he did, he would never start dating Kate Bosworth. Oh wait, the hate fest started AFTER Alex already dated her. Poor guy, why the “fans” didn’t warn him when he started shooting the film with her ;)

    I read about the trolls,somehow i agree that probably are not just bitter people but some jealous about Alex.About if there are only from TB co starts? not sure but maybe half of it (maybe also co stars from other of his movies)
    Sadly Hollywood is like that (the more i see the more i thank for never wanted be an actress),lots and lots of jealousy.
    Know Alex doesn’t read but somehow i do wish he read me this: If he wants to stay in True Blood and do more movies.He has to stay strong because more and more jealousy will come from many many co-stars.
    I know he is not a perfect person that is somehow why i like about Alex,he was shown drunk and showing be not a patient man.I might probably have run but not to because he is what he is and not hypocrite one that only do things to make fans happy (he remind me Prince Harry,at least on his personality.Doing mistakes as every human but still charming.I am happy that Prince Harry is in love right now,i have faith they will marry)
    Thank you i will do a try,

    This is getting Messy Says:

    I love how people throw around this is a gossip site and this is gossip no it is not. Do people know what gossip is some of you are starting nasty rumor and bashing the guy off no info what so ever and there has been so much said about him and nothing as come to fruition.

    Gossip is talking about the likes of KK sex tape and how her mother film it and placed it on the web like that teen mom is doing. talking about KW rants and how he acts like an ***** to his fans and people and even now his pregnant GF. Or Gerald B doing almost every woman he comes across and sometimes forgetting their names even though they are on tv and apart of another gossip circle and many many more celeb gossip that is actually out there because those are gossip there are traces and photograph and video evidence on the web of these.

    But when it comes to Alex there is nothing so people make it up and it is tiresome and childish so far he has been nothing but nice to his fans who stop him where ever he seems to go be it on a plane or going to the bathroom or where ever. Shouldn’t that count for something shouldn’t he get a pass for peace until he f*ks it up.

    People complain that celebs are out of touch and out of reach and nasty to fans but the one guy that seem as a celeb to keep to his job greet and sign and talk to his fans almost never says no people bash him and his family and his friends and make up stuff no one is saying that you should only say nice things about him if you don’t want to say nice things then just don’t say anything at all.

    Where he is fair game to me is his acting and his movies you can talk about it all you want that is what he is there for he might do roles that you don’t like but for whatever reasons he has chosen those roles he knows why.

    But when it comes down to him as a person people should have some boundaries because it’s not like he is going out of his way to being a ***** or making sex tapes and bashing people or his fans he says nice things about everyone he has worked with whether or not he means it doesn’t matter he could be a difficult one and bi*ch and moan and complain and be an a*s to work with but no he is just doing his job and keeping his head down with what he seems to love to do it would be nice to not read made up comments about someone that seems to be so nice.

    That’s how you make ***** celebs when people keeps creating lies about them.

    Just don’t call it gossip call it slander because you guys are basing most of your comments on no facts or trace of proof anywhere so that is slander and bashing that is a huge difference.

    he looks kinda tired I hope he gets some rest after his press runs and TB.
