Alexander Skarsgard Pictures in GQ 2011-05-17 07:26:32 Alexander Skarsgard Shows Hot Muscle, Talks True Blood, and Family in GQ by Allie Merriam 17/5/11 28 Reactions 0 Shares Print 0 0 0 0 0 Alexander Skarsgard made a hot cover model for GQ's June issue, available on newsstands May 24. He's out and about chatting up his big-screen project Straw Dogs, which he shot nearly two years ago in Louisiana. Production on the film gave Alexander a chance to meet his current real-life leading lady, Kate Bosworth, though he didn't speak about her in the magazine. Instead, Alexander touched on working with married costars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer in True Blood and what it was like growing up in Sweden with a famous dad, actor Stellan Skarsgard. Alexander Skarsgard said in GQ: On working with married couple Anna and Stephen: "It’s really clear to Steve and to everybody else what the deal is — which is that Anna is like a sister to me. . . .Those love scenes take quite a bit of acting, actually. A lot of acting." On joining the Swedish military: "It was my way of going off into the unknown. I didn’t want to just be somebody’s son." On life in Sweden: "You walk into the coffee shop, and the girl asks how your day is. When I first moved here, I loved that. I know it’s shallow and superficial and she doesn’t give a f*ck about my day, but I still like it. It’s difficult to get to know a Swede. But once you do, you’re in. . . .You’re never going to see a television show The Skarsgårds." On his famous dad Stellan: "I don’t think I came to acting to compete with my father. But, you know, he wasn’t around as much as normal dads, and seeing his passion. . . . Maybe it was a way to get his attention. . . I mean, if anything, we’re trying to take care of him. He’s over the hill."

She really makes it hard to enjoy him .I find it all shades of nasty that she was able to hook with a guy who played her rapist so soon after filming that gang rape scene in Straw Dogs. Gross! anya82 2 years Alex is a very masculine hotness about him. It's not a pretty boy but I can't help but blush whenever I see him on t.v. or mag. <3 Berrymimi 2 years Oooh military... That's kinda hot... anissadfw 2 years I <3 Alex! All he's missing is the cherry on top...yes, please!! 2 years I have a theory that good actors often make poor models and vice versa. Maybe because models are trained to make their faces very still to look photogenic and symmetrical. But then they come off as wooden when they act. Good actors have all these little "microexpressions" (fleeting bursts of emotion that cross their faces) that make them come alive on screen--but I bet they mess up the perfect stillness needed to look your best in a still shot. 2 years Alex is a stud but he's not really a photogenic one. He's much better looking in motion. I used to be surprised to find how extremely gorgeous he was in 'True Blood' and began to understand all the hype surrounding him. Really, all his photographs so far hadn't done him justice. spicyaroma 2 years he's so hot. omg. 2 years this guy does less than nothing for me...he's always so cheesy looking tinamarie76 2 years Well yeah that's a must. Lol jazzytummy 2 years I only want a hammock if he comes with it. YUM. tinamarie76 2 years Lol. No problem. I just love both him and his dad. And can I just say I so want a hammock. Haha littlemunchkin 2 years @tinamarie76 Ohhh got it now, thanks :-) tinamarie76 2 years It was a joke. His dad is in fine shape. Just a little sense of humor. littlemunchkin 2 years Is something wrong with his Dad? I don't understand what he means when he says "we're trying to take care of him. He's over the hill"?
