Alexander Skarsgard Calls His Sundance Movie 'Refreshing'

Alexander Skarsgard arrives at one of his favorite spots, Joan’s on Third, for lunch with friends on Tuesday afternoon (January 27) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The 38-year-old actor is in town after attending the Sundance Film Festival over the weekend to premiere his new movie Diary of a Teenage Girl.

“There’s been tons and tons of coming-of-age stories, but I’ve never read a book or seen a film about a young girl that is so real, and not sentimental, and it’s not judgmental,” Alexander told HitFix. “It’s actually a girl that’s allowed to think about sex. You see that with boys a lot in films, but when it comes to girls, they’re always portrayed as they’re waiting for that prince to come and save them.

“I thought it was real refreshing when I read the script… how raw it was how real it was, and visceral,” he added.
