    LOL!! Wild and crazy Swede.

  • hmmmmmmm

    Yes, Alex is going to be “that’s my crazy uncle” in the family. LOL.

  • Lola

    what a great pic! hahaha

  • Disrespectful

    Wow, can’t believe you posted this, Jared. A private family photo that was lifted from Instagram (not a magazine, not taken during an interview) and includes the faces of two minor-aged children. Shame on you.

  • hmmmmmmm

    @Disrespectful – is this your first time on Jared? LOL.

  • Gina

    Cute and funny photo.
    Also, this isn’t the first time I’ve seen this. Other sites have it. If it’s on Instagram, it can be reposted.

  • pliss

    … but it wasn’t posted at public instagram any of them, someone stolen/reposted it on tumblr … and her we go :(

  • mary

    The two young sons are from Stellan Skarsgard’s second marriage. So he had Bill when he was still married to Alexander’s biological mother? Because Eija (the daughter) is younger than Bill… What a mess.

  • Char69

    @mary: The six children, ages 36 to 17 are from Stellen’s (Alex’s dad) first marriage. The two younger children, ages about 2 y/o and 8 months old are from Stellen’s second marriage. What is a mess about that?

  • Scarlett


    No, you really didn’t read it properly did you *sigh* Alexander, Gustaf, Sam, Bill, Eija and Valter are all his children with this first wife, My. Then he married Megan Everett and they have two sons together, Ossian born in 09 and Kolbjörn born 2012.

    As for the photo, where ever it came from, I would think if family Skarsgard are bothered about it being used on gossip sites etc they will contact them and ask them to remove it.

  • mary

    @Char69: oh ok, sorry. I just thought those two boys were his brother’s children.

  • mary

    @Scarlett: thank you

  • pu see

    I think it kind of makes him look stupid, IDK, maybe he needs attention, IDK, just kind of weird !

  • gaja

    he ioves to be naked or is that picture fotoshopte ?

  • Mia

    Hilarious, he is so damn fine, he can do whatever!

  • Strange

    Oh my goddess …..

  • Slinky the Cat

    Mmmmmm….bulking up for Tarzan? I love this family so hard.

  • natalie


    Someone’s already explained this to you so I won’t bother but take another close look at the picture before you post st**id comments. Bill, Eija and Valter – Stellan’s youngest kids from his marriage to My – look just like their mother (google her: My Skarsgård). It’s insane. The girl in particular is the spitting image of her mother, it’s uncanny really. Aside from the two babies (Ossian and Kolbjörn) the rest are fullblood siblings and it’s really fun to see how some of them look nothing alike. The only trait they share is their height. They’re all REALLY TAAAAALL.

  • Re


    Totally agree!!!!!

  • Batsh*t Crazy Keiko

    I love this so much, I love hulk moment, flexing Alexander. I love this family. I love Stellan Skarsgard that is all and everything. Oh I love Alexander Skarsgard so hard.

  • Tanter

    @Disrespectful: I agree too. To think that Jared repays the friendliness both Alex and Bill has show him with posting a private picture stolen from a closed account. Shame on you Jared!

  • Lulu

    Jared is quite good buddies with the clan so he probably had the approval of the family before posting it.

  • FDL

    @Disrespectful: Agreed. Jared blurs out the face of Sienna Miller’s baby when she takes her out in public very well knowing that the paparazzi are following her, but shows the faces of these children in a private photo? Ridiculous, despicable behavior.

  • Skarzan

    @Tanter: I agree but maybe JJ doesn’t know it’s stolen from private account? I don’t think Skarsfamily even knows the picture is circulating all over internet.

  • Curiosity about these 2

    Vikander and Alexander may not be serious but they are a little more then just co workers, since he has been in Sweden they have been inseparable.
    she attended dinner with Alex and pals yet bill and gustaf arrived some time later.? Wouldn’t Alex , gustaf , bill arrive all together ??? Why separate
    Sorry since when have her and bill ever hanged out her co worker the one she actually worked with and not Alexander,
    I think with bill once during Cannes 2013 ,
    Vikander is always with Alexander?
    I don’t care if the dating rumor was denied by her mom I think some time back to a Swedish paper that was then this is now
    Things change maybe they relise they are good for each other both Swedish, enjoy the same things age gap means nothing these days if Alex wants to start a family.

  • Tanter

    @Skarzan: He probably doesn’t. However – anyone who’s been following Alex for even just a short while knows he keeps things with the family private. This photo that includes the youngest brothers SCREAMS private and most fans know that too. Obviously it’s all over the net now but posting it like this is very disrespectful.

  • jen

    @Curiosity about these 2: ooooor, they just have mutual friends *GASP*!!!! Alicia was at a completely different Midsummer party than Alex. They have not been “inseparable” stop making crap up.

  • Tarzan

    @pu see:

    They are doing a Tarzan spoof. What the family portrait would look like if the oldest son was lost in the jungle and came back to society with out manners. The family has a great sense of humor.

  • Marlene

    Alex is such a goofball. It’s cool the whole family can spend some time together.

  • Lv

    Birth control, mate!

  • Steph

    Wow, really bad taste to put a private photo that was taken off someone’s instagram account Jared. You should take this post down. Putting two small children’s faces up without blurring them is not acceptable. Do you not need parental permission to do that? I would think you do.

  • gaja

    I read with amazement what is written . Some people know more of as then his friends. and as for that photo maybe they have themselves posted that picture on the Internet and have no problem with it . they will probably know that photo is on it. and j j is a friend of as ? if that is so and as had problems with that picturea a friend had not placed it .and if you do you are not a friend

  • ladybug

    @Steph: In the US you don’t need permission to post pics of children.
    @gaja: I wouldn’t call JJ a ‘friend’ of Alex’s, Alex knows that he has to be friendly with JJ, but that doesn’t mean they’re friends.
    I think JJ posted it because other sites had done so already. Whether or not it was meant to be private it was a little late to have it taken down.

  • Macy

    Wow, bizarre post but since everyone else has already run this photo it’s not really JJ breaking the mold here.

  • Cafélady

    hmm…I would say, if the family really don’t know that this pic circulates in the net – then surely their management (of alex, stellan). And if it would be really such a bad thing in their view, then they probably already would have done something against it.
    On the other hand: like ladybug already has mentioned – it’s a bit late now, to take the pic down. Because unfortunately it’s: once in the net – ever in the net. So one can’t really take it down now – respectively the effort wouldn’t be appropriate for the thing itself. Because I think, the pic itself (and what you can see on it) it’s harmless – even though, one can good imagine that it was originally thought for the private family picture album.

    Like I said already in the previous thread: I think, possibly they aren’t happy about it, that the pic now circulates in the net and onto several fan-sites – but presumable less because the pic itself (and what’s on it), then more because the way how it probably came that it came into the net anyway. At least, this would be my presumption – should they really feel bothered by this whole thing.

    @ladybug: #34 I agree, I also think that alex is friendly to JJ (like he is to everyone) but that doesn’t mean automatically that they’re actually private befriended.

  • vikander

    there are new pic on tumblr of Alex and Alicia having lunch from last year alone and it looked like she text him as he was going back to his car with his background of messing with co stars and women friends I think these two have done it and is doing it now in Sweden. He is still in Sweden and so is she and they have been seen more than once out with each other that we know of maybe he is in Sweden for her to be with her. He has not been seen with any other woman other than her and the last story of him was with her at restaurant with a small group sounds very comfy and romantic. But there is a pic of her with a guy that looks like Alex sitting in front of her and the other pics she was infront of him too as he drank is beer. So I am going to say that these two are more than just chumps and are a actively doing it couple. He likes that young and she is swedish prefect for him no?

  • ladybug

    @vikander: Those pics from last year? JJ posted them at the time.

    This doesn’t look like a ‘romantic dinner’ or outing:

    He hasn’t been seen with any woman other than her? What about the mystery brunette from NYC in May? Ellen Page? Caroline Winberg?

    @Macy: “not really JJ breaking the mold here.” Breaking the mold isn’t JJ’s thing.

  • London ?

    Alex is in London fan pic someone said he is their because of the ginger/red hair chick he is seeing WTF where have I been la la land who ??????? & lives in London & NY ?.????? WTF anyone know

  • London Yes

    He there to see Caroline Winberg. She’s doing The Face there.

  • Cadulech

    I have my bet that Alex is in London as he is next to go to Iceland if you all know what i mean (sure people who travel a lot knows what i am talking about with this)

  • gaja

    it is not sure that this photo was taken in londen . if he is there there wore more photos of him

  • Cadulech

    You are right,i now start to doubt he is in London or maybe is as i said,he was in london but not for so long.Some trips make land to UK to go somewhere else.

  • Canuck

    I have no idea if that’s London or not. But sunglasses, drinks with umbrellas? Are they actually having a summer this year that isn’t just grey rainy days?

  • Cadulech

    Could be Heathrow,just saying…

  • Cadulech

    I have to agree now,i saw last fan pic and doesn’t look like London.

  • hmmmmmmm

    He’s in London. A pic was just post on the purse forum. Ah AS in lovely old London. :) And there have been twitter (tweet, tweet) sightings. Lucky people!

  • Cadulech

    Yes but tweet can lie,looks more like Italy to me.

  • hmmmmmmm

    Cadulech- So what you are saying is all the tweets and instagrams from London are all liars.LOL. There is an Italy conspiracy going on folks.LOL.

  • Cadulech

    There are not all,there are few and i don’t like twitter for that reason.
