    Can’t wait for pics on monday with the EAST cast in NY…do i need to comment on how good he looks…

  • Amanda

    Ugh, brit should go away for good.

  • ladybug

    @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.

  • Macy

    Nice to see him getting out and about lately! I hope his films do well.

  • Joan

    @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.

  • hmmmmmmm

    Before this post goes into the bizzaro world that the previous one went into, I like to say how good to be getting a little more Alex in NYC soon.:)

  • Cadulech

    How JJ can make of not allow the comments that have nothing to do with Alex or the famous person of the thread :S i also saw it on Prince Harry thread that comment of the dating

  • Cadulech

    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.

  • Pip

    He looks bad.

  • ladybug

    @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.

  • Rob Server


    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

  • Idun

    @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.

  • ladybug

    @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:

  • Rob Server


    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 ;)

  • Olivia

    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.

  • syart

    Sweet, sweet dear lovely Alexander
    jag älskar dig
    It’s great to see him and his boxer out and about.

  • Olivia

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

  • Rob Server


    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 ;)

  • Cadulech

    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

    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 Ahole 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 Ahole 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 Ahole 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.

  • rifkin

    Alex flying again to NY…
    When exactly he have time to photograph the true blood???
    No wonder the True Blood PRODUSERS WANTS HIM OFF THE SHOW…

  • Deal With It

    Just Jared is an open site.

    Anyone can see, read, and comment on any articles of any celeb no matter if they are a fan, superfan, just randomly clicking, or a troll.

    This is not a fansite or an Alexander Skarsgard appreciation blog.

    If you never want to see any criticism of his acting or interviews, never want to read speculation on who he might be dating, never want to see talk on what shows he might be leaving, if you never want to see anyone questioning how he might be in real life versus his public person, if you never want to read that he does things for promotion I suggest you spend all your time on a private fan forum where everything is moderated to maintain a certain image of Alex.

    Better yet I’d suggest you keep to your diaries and you can write out your love letters to Alex.

    If you insist on coming to JJ you will have to deal with your god like visions of Alex being questioned at times.

  • Cadulech

    “People complain that celebs are out of touch and out of reach and nasty to fans”
    I don’t like celebs for that matter that is why if i go to another thread,is royal one.
    Sadly JJ only put british royals but would be interesting see the rest here as well like the Swedish,the Spanish or the House of Holland now that they have new king.

  • Happy

    I don’t understand why anyone is upset in this thread.

    No one has said anything mean or disgusting.

    In fact I don’t recall Joan or Amanda ever saying anything mean about Alex.

    I have memories of them both saying they appreciate Alex’s acting.

    Not loving every interview he gives does not mean they are not fans.

    Many fans operate like this: they think an actor is good, and what to see him do better so they talk on how they think that actor can improve.

    That’s not slandering.
    Not liking how he interviews is not slandering him.

    Recognizing that he can improve on aspects of his public persona is not slandering him.

    Saying he does certain things to promote a film is not slandering him.

    Saying the type of roles you prefer him in is not slandering him.

  • ladybug

    @Rob Server: I knew you were criticizing me, and I wasn’t trying to criticize you. I was trying to clarify that while there are fans, of Alex or whomever, who can’t abide any criticism of their favorite celebrity, this isn’t really what you’re talking about.

    @Olivia, but there have always been differing opinions of Alex, even among his more ‘devoted’ fans, whether it’s concerning film roles, or the really important subject of why he can’t find/wear pants that fit! :)

    He’s also had a lot of trolls for a long time, so it’s not just that there might be an uptick in interest for people who are just finding out who he is.

    And it’s a lot easier to troll on this site because there is no consistent moderation, whether it’s for spam trolls, or more virulent commenters (and this is site wide, not just on Alex posts).

    Who are the trolls? Despite my fondness for the One Troll Theory, there’s probably a different motive for each one.

    And that being said, it’s time to take my own advice and ignore them.

  • Alex isn’t perfect

    Alex isn’t perfect.

    That’s ok. I think he is a nice guy and a good actor.

    Doesn’t mean he can’t improve on some areas.

    I for one am happy he is getting more exposure even if that means dealing with the occasional gossip and craziness.

    It’s part of the growing pains and it happens all the time when an actor gains popularity.

  • ladybug

    @Cadulech: This is an American site, so if he does anything on the Royals it’s going to be mainly the Brits. I don’t think JJ is going to cover the current scandals surrounding the Spanish royal family.

    @Happy: “I don’t understand why anyone is upset in this thread. No one has said anything mean or disgusting.” You might want to go back and re-read the previous thread.

  • This is getting Messy

    @Deal With It:

    You just said yourself lame a*s this is JJ so I will write a long a*s dairy if I want. Deal with that and while you are dealing with that know this douchebag just because you type it doesn’t make it so. Why not go fix your trouble life.

    But continue be a low life you, you got nothing so keep talking out your a*s and I will write long love letter to Alex if I want as you said as you said DEAL WITH IT A*SHOLE, I stay here and write love letter just like you feel the need to bash the guy.

    If you want to talk about his acting great lets discuss if you want to talk about how many pants he owns 5 maybe lets but making up sh*t don’t make it real.
    You people are f*cking idiot just keep proving that good bred of people are dying out congrats

  • Cadulech

    Hmmm … your point about be american site (not only as USA but as whole continent.Few care about royals,in my country time to time we have news from royals even the swedish royals but not as i wish and comments about the royals are worse than here in JJ or in any american site)

  • Rob Server

    @Deal With It:

    Practice what you preach then. This indeed is an open forum and to me it’s normal to speculate where all the negativity comes from, especially when the other TB actors are pretty much left alone and when Alex is widely praised to be a nice, genuine and humble guy by almost all his co-workers, reporters and fans who have actually met him. Alex is not that famous yet outside TB circles, I don’t think he’s even reached a proper celeb status aka Kardashians, Butler, Gosling (to mention a few etc) yet, so on that account I don’t think there’s that much random trolls or commenters. And if you can speculate what a bad, pretentious, manipulative liar Alex is why can’t others speculate why someone feels the need to smear him and spread obviously false rumors about him. Deal with that ;)

  • This is getting Messy

    No where in any of my post did I say the guy was prefect No where. I said he was nice and sweet and accommodating if you need a dictionary they don’t mean the same thing everytime someone says something nice about him you douchebags come in here and rant how he isn’t prefect. I know he is human.

    We know he is not a god either douche he is tall and Swedish before you start accusing people read their posts but then again it will go back to saying you douches have nothing to go after other then making stuff up to make yourselves feel better about bashing him.

    So you come here, guess what I am here too. DEAL WITH THAT

  • Deal With It

    I feel bad for the few sane fans here.

    They get lumped in with the crazies that think A. Skarsgard is indeed perfect and without a flaw.

    They get upset over someone saying they didn’t like an interview.

    An interview! Ridiculous I know. They yammer on and on about how perfect he is and that there is no evidence of character flaws.

    How about Alex’s own admissions?

    Alex has admitted he questions whether or not he’d make a good father.

    He has admitted to drinking too much. Too much to the point he blacks out and doesn’t know where he is. To the point he gets in stupid fights. He has admitted to messing around with drugs.

    Your man has flaws. Don’t put him on a pedestal and expect him to be a god that’s not fair to him.

  • Deal With It

    I’m fine with the way things are. I just don’t see why you all insist on being somewhere that makes you so upset.

    You energy seems like it would be better served at a fansite among people you don’t have to convince how wonderful Alex is or protect Alex from, or spreading the wonders of Alexander Skarsgard on the streets, or building an alter.

    You can do what you want with your time, but expecting an open forum like JJ to change to fit your perfect image of Alex seems a waste of valuable time.

  • This is getting Messy

    @Deal With It:

    F*cking moron did you have to google search to dig that up I guess reading is not a fundamental trait of yours. because here you go with the prefect sh*t.

    Sane fans on JJ I read more Insane stuff then sane stuff not only on Alex but on almost all celebs anyways you on on a path go on if makes your miserable life worth while.
    Why wouldn’t he question it, if you find one parent that told you they would make a great parent and say they are honest they are lying. No one knows that. Every child as issues with their parent. Good for him for admitting at least he is hiding it his drunk phase and when was the last time he black out or got so drunk that he couldn’t function.
    I have said it before I will say it again every one as a past and he seems to be trying to figure out which way to go let him do it , does it make you feel better to pick at his life and not yours handle your own business he is handling his.

    The only one that put him on a pedestal is you and the for no other reason than to kick him off of it DEAL WITH THAT but I have a feeling dealing with things is not really your strong suit.

  • Deal With It

    Costars rarely say anything negative about a coworker even ones who’s behavior is outlandish. It’s bad business for them. So them saying he’s a nice guy means very little.

  • This is getting Messy

    Everything means very little to you. Doesn’t matter what anyone says about him the nice stuff anyways. But wait until someone says some bad or nasty about him you will be here for days telling people see see then it then that is the truth right. Because THAT IS WHAT YOU WANT TO BELIEVE.

    LOL douche

  • ladybug

    @This is getting Messy: If you keep playing with it it’ll stick around.

    @Cadulech, I’m presuming there are sites out there that are more focused on royalty, but most mainstream US gossips sites don’t care beyond Harry and William and Kate.

  • Happy


    Yes I read that thread. I chose not to comment because I don’t think that kind of talk is worthy of a response.
    It’s stupid. I ignore stupidity.
    I don’t think it’s a good idea to bring those bad feelings into new threads. It’s better just to let them die. I think ignoring is better than having every thread become a fight with troll or trolls. Trolls don’t change they just want drama.

    I can understand being upset I was upset when I read those things to but I still think ignoring is better.

  • maria

    @ladybug: a lot of people have said lot of really nasty comments about alexander, and i dont talk about criticism his look, girls or works.but i think that happens with other celebrities, i read old post other day and i find angelina jolie post whit people say (2 years ago) that her twin has down sindrome wtf?some people are really nasty and crazy.

  • This is getting Messy


    They are always here Ladybug waiting and changing names. That last thread was beyond uncalled for. BEYOND As the douche said someone as to protect Alex because he is a Saint a God Prefect lol everytime. But I don’t know why though he is tall and I am pretty sure he can defend himself very well but I am here and I read these stuff and sometimes someone has to say this is getting messy. Stop it!

  • Deal With It

    Kind of like you only want to see Alex as perfect.

    The difference between you and me is that can accept that Alex is a flawed human being.

    I think Alex is like most people both good and bad. Nice and not so night.
    Alex has said something similar .

    It’s a fairly common tactic to sing the praises of your costars. So he may be great he may not be.

    Neither you or I really know.

    Again, what I said to you before are Alex’s own words.

    His own words. I think he knows himself better than anyone.

  • Cadulech

    @Deal With It:
    Yes,he said it something like that.That he doesn’t believe in good or bad people (i think start like that).
    Alex is human,is of human makes mistakes that is why i don’t expect him be perfect.Involved? yes,that is what expect.That every mistakes should be for learn.

  • Cadulech

    improve sorry wrong word.I expect him to improve.

  • Rob Server

    @Deal With It:

    No one here or anywhere among his real fans is putting him on the pedestal or think he’s a flawless, can’t do wrong superhero, but you keep patronizing his fans who choose to NOT bash errr sorry I mean “criticise” him on the public forums. You seem to be such a “know it all” person with ” I’m better than thou” attitude, so tell me again where’s the critic towards the other TB actors? There’s now way in hell you make me believe this is “normal” gossiping until you start to give some well earned critic to the other TB actors as well. Until that happens, I keep wondering who’s payroll these overly “critical” fans are. Does that make you uncomfortable? ;)

  • This is getting Messy

    @Deal With It:

    You write like you are incapable of reading with understanding because you repeat and rehash it’s not necessary Read last posts.
    You got nothing anyways if Chris Brown can have fans sing his praise all over and still get support. I can sing Alex’s praise too. Reading and understanding is a necessity read then reply because I hate repeating myself.

    As Cad says he seems to have learned from his younger days mistakes again everyone has a past we are now talking about his future.
