Alexander Skarsgard: 'Sexism Is a Big Problem in Hollywood'

Alexander Skarsgard arrives at LAX Airport to catch a flight out of town on Wednesday (July 29) in Los Angeles.

The 38-year-old actor recently opened up to the London Evening Standard about sexism in Hollywood.

“Sexism is a big problem in Hollywood,” Alexander said. “Boys can talk about sex and have sex in films and it’s cool but when girls do it they are just sluts. It’s so prudish and puritanical. Hollywood is difficult for women — people making films want super-hot, young girls, and then there are fewer great roles for women aged over 40.”

10+ pictures inside of Alexander Skarsgard at the airport…

    We’ll see how old his next female co-star is. Margot was 23.

    You know what else is a big problem in Hollywood? Women who starve themselves. What do you say about that Alex?

  • jason

    If alex had the power to choose his female co-star he would choose a young one over someone his age

  • Other Side

    Talk is easy. He needs to back this up with a movie or project. Actions speak louder than words.

    Says the idiot who makes his living as a sex symbol to attract female audiences — presumably YOUNG females.

    And 1/3 his total body weight.

  • Other Side

    The best comments come from the London Evening Standard link:

    “Alexander is a good actor but the company he keeps is very disturbing. Any actor with self respect who cares for his image and career would never date a waste basket like Alexa Chung.”
    &
    “Alexander Skarsgård falls under the category of men in Hollywood who are superficial. He’s Sweden’s Leonardo DiCaprio minus the great acting chops. All he ever dates are models or actresses and says his privacy is important to him. That’s why he dates Alexa Chung because she’s so private and doesn’t like any media attention. (sarcasm).”

  • Only the lonely

    He forgot to add FETISHISM FOR ANOREXIC WOMEN is ONE BIG PROBLEM he has brought to HW on his own.

  • Only the lonely

    & some VAPID SHALLOW FASHIONISTA w/ no brains.

  • Only the lonely

    Thank you very much…
    I’ll never forget the good old DAILY FAIL times…
    Eta: Alexa is clearly taking him to the dark side of NO or LESSER & LESSER COMMENTS…
    Many of his old fans are clearly not interested anymore.
    WHY could it be???

  • Only the lonely

    He’s fucked up in the head.
    NO LONGER MARKETABLE AS A SEX SYMBOL…
    Much to his stans’ dismay.

    Heaven help me but I hadn’t checked the stupid skeleton’s Insta for a week & that is what I found.
    She DOES have A BIG BIG PROBLEM w/ her weight.
    Just check the comments about it.
    Maybe she’ll get dignified & defensive once more & close her IG?
    It’d be a relief for me.
    Closing her NARCISSISTIC TEENAGE-LIKE IG. I mean.

    Eta: the best comment there is a beautiful metaphor in Spanish.
    “Sus bracitos son agujas de tejer”
    Her tiny arms are knitting needles.
    LOL

    I would’ve linked the PITIFUL DELUSIONAL PF STANS who had those scans FULLY TRANSCRIBED at their PITIFUL DELUSIONAL thread but I’m feeling humanitarian so I’m cutting them some slack & went to the ORIGINAL SOURCE.
    Dearest Queen Bee,
    What kind of messed-up METH are you using so that you think that’s one of his best interviews in a LOOONG TIME?! You got yourself a new avatar (which could’ve been picked by Katy Perry) to replace the one w/ Jean Seberg so as to look LESS PRETENTIOUS? Epic fail. Now you seem STUPID.
    I wonder how i could think this guy was more intelligent than HW average.
    It’s the SAME F*CKING CRAP in repeat, over & over again.
    That he had a bohemian childhood much like Pippi Langstrumpf.
    That he became an actor b/c he was a failure in everything else (maybe you got tired of studying hard, Alex, & decided it would be better to make use of your daddy’s connections?)
    That his sister is THE BEST (once more he skipped the part that he’s giving his mum a heart attack w/ his addiction for the bone). And yep NONE of his siblings is as NUTS as Alex is.
    That VANITY IS DEATH for an actor. That he doesn’t consider himself attractive. C’mon. That’s why you work out? Apart from in order to have sex w/ one of the MOST HIDEOUS SICKLY-LOOKING women in the world?
    But i must confess that the line that made me spill my soda over my cell phone screen is the one where Alexa is openly cited as “HIS GIRLFRIEND”.
    Please google IAN WATKINS, folks!

    I don’t see a problem with working out,in fact have many benefits.Science has shown that working out is good against Alzheimer (also against other diseases and obviously all with moderation as too much work out can be bad as well).
    He can eat and work out all what he likes as long as don’t become anorexic or the opposite = obese (obesity also bring health problems,not just anorexia).

  • Razzie

    Hollywood has always placed young women in roles, rather than older women. Roles for older actresses is usually being someone’s mother. There are a lot of issues with HW in general, one being that the same actors and actresses keep getting the same awards every year during award season, its the same group every year. Sorry off subject. I think it would be nice if they are going to do quotes from interviews, is they include the question that was asked. I think AS popularity is not as it was a year ago, because he is no longer being seen weekly on TB. The public forgets easily and there is always someone new to take there place.

    Oh, honey. I’ve seen it. Askars is hot as *fuck* in that (and did a great acting job as well; he was 100% believable as a US Marine and I’ve got a brother who is one). But still, my comment stands.

  • aimeelou

    He has committed career suicide dating that transvestite no-one in HW will touch him now his partying and other habits have overshadowed his acting abilities

    If the rumors are true that broadway wont even hire him i think its time to give up and head back to Sweden

  • Only the lonely

    Dear Penny,
    Is it just me or Askars has become a little bit of a TRY-HARD lately?
    Maybe Chung’s influence…
    I know that he keeps doing some charity/awareness work & I could respect him b/c of that but i get the feeling that if he’s in love or in a relationship w/ someone so empty-headed as Alexa he’s prob doing everything for PR…
    Why did he dress up like a drag??
    He doesn’t play one in the film.
    He reminded me a bit of my beloved Patrick Swayze I must say.
    Btw I am getting bullied at the last JJ post just b/c I keep throwing the words ED / fetish / impotent & Ian Watkins around…
    They are telling me to STOP.
    AS IF THEY COULD
    LOL

    He’s on the lower rung of human intellect, so who knows what the answer to these questions are.
