Alexander Skarsgard Thought Tarzan Should Have a Loincloth

Alexander recently revealed that he was upset that in the film, Tarzan was wearing pants instead of the traditional loincloth.

“I was trying to get a little sexy loincloth [to wear]. I was trying to convince [director] David Yates for weeks when we were doing prep,” Alexander explained during a press conference.

He added, “The way the script is written, it opens in London, he’s Victorian and he’s acclimated to life in London, and then he goes back [to the jungle]. David was like, ‘It doesn’t make sense. That little loincloth’s got to go.’”
