The 39-year-old actor is starring in the new film The Legend of Tarzan, which is in theaters now. Alex takes on the role of the classic character, who has acclimated to his life in London and is called back to his former home in the jungle to investigate the activities at a mining encampment.
Alexander Skarsgard looks super hot in his blue top while appearing on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday night (June 30) in New York City.
The 39-year-old The Legend of Tarzan actor was interviewed alongside Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates actress Aubrey Plaza.
During the episode, Alex was asked by a caller if the “gossip magazine” rumors of him having wedding bells in his near future are true.
“Wow,” Alex said with a big surprise on his face. “I hope I’m invited. Wow, thank you.” When Andy Cohen followed up by asking if he’d be getting married soon, he said, “Not that I know of, but if it’s in a gossip magazine, it’s probably true. So I better get started.”

The 39-year-old The Legend of Tarzan actor opened up to the mag about how he got his eight pack abs to play the title role in the new film.
Alex spent three months bulking up and added “25lb by eating ‘an insane’ 7,000 calories a day (three times his usual intake) and lifting heavy weights.”
Once he arrived in London for filming, Alex “embarked on a very strict sugar-, gluten-, wheat-, dairy- and alcohol-free diet of six smaller meals per day alongside his twice-daily training sessions.”
Alex worked with his friend Magnus Lygdback instead of using one of Warner Bros’ trainers. “When you have to see the same person every morning at 4.30am, it’s important you get on well with them,” he said.
“The first A.D on that movie was Cousin Wonderlette, a legendary drag queen in San Francisco,” Alexander revealed to Conan. “She was hosting [the premiere] with all her drag queen friends, and there was just something about the excitement about getting ready for the premiere as I was sitting there with my gray suit. They were talking about their wigs and their dresses and everything and I felt left out. So I asked Cousin, ‘Can I play? Can I be a part of this?’ She said ‘yes’ and asked who I wanted to be and I said Farrah Fawcett.”

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.’”

Alexander Skarsgard is all smiles in a gray suit while making his way inside the Ed Sullivan Theater to make an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday (June 20) in New York City.
The 39-year-old actor expressed his love for Stephen and challenged him to eat Swedish fish eggs in the form of KALLES, a Swedish staple that the New York Times says “challenges the universal gag reflex.”
