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.
