Alexander Skarsgard Reveals How He Picks his Movie Roles

Alexander Skarsgard walks back to his car after running some errands on Wednesday (January 28) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The 38-year-old actor just hit up the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, where he talked about how he picks his movie and television roles.

“I really don’t have a plan or a strategy. When I read a script, it’s very basic. It’s all about do I connect or not? Is this something I’m creatively excited about? The combination of the script and meeting the filmmaker — you’re either excited or you’re not. I can’t say what I’m going to be excited about, or a specific genre, or a specific type of director, or a specific role. I have a tendency to be more inspired and more excited if it’s something that I feel like I haven’t done, you know?” Alex told Refinery29.

“When I was on True Blood, every hiatus, I did actively search for roles that were different,” Alex continued. “Not because I felt that I needed to show people that I could play someone other than Eric Northman, but because I creatively wasn’t interested in — after shooting the show for seven months — going straight from that to playing a character that was exactly the same.”

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.

Alexander Skarsgard on Relationship Rumors: I Don't Let Them Dictate My Life

Alexander Skarsgard makes his way through the airport after finishing up his time at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival on Monday (January 26) in Park City, Utah.

The 38-year-old actor recently commented on false relationship rumors that are constantly circulating – including the recent Margot Robbie relationship rumors that just spread across the Internet.

“Well, I ignore it. I don’t buy those magazines…I realize that that’s the reality. If I go to a hockey game with Ellen [Page] — who is a super dear friend of mine who I really bonded with while filming The East — I understand that if we hang out or get coffee, there might be rumors that we’re dating or whatever. But, I don’t care. I’m not going to not see my friends because of that. I’m not going to let rumors dictate what I do or how I lead my life,” Alex told Refinery29.
