Ever since Kate Bosworth and Alex Skarsgard split up last year, Alex has maintained a much, much lower profile. I have no idea who or what he’s been doing. I don’t imagine he spends too many nights alone (he’s got that Viking Sex God thing going on, after all), but it doesn’t seem like Alex jumped into anything serious, or that he was even boning the same girl two nights in a row (“serious”). But that might be changing… The Enquirer reports that Alex might be quietly loved up with CHARLIZE!! Ol’ Rose-Boobs Theron. Chelsea Handler’s latest BFF. Charlize Theron, the Oscar winner who was boning Ryan Reynolds for a while last summer, just before Blake Lively got to him. THAT Charlize.
Charlize Theron has fallen for a vampire! Theron, 36, is enjoying a secret romance with Alexander Skarsgard, 35. Although Skarsgard has put the bite on Charlize, the two are meeting in unlikely places to give their relationship a chance to blossom away from the public eye, say sources.
Observors recently spotted the pair snuggling at the Gym Sportsbar, a gay nightspot in West Hollywood.
“They ordered two beers and went to sit on the patio,” an eyewitness told The Enquirer. “I realized it was Charlize and her date was Alexander Skarsgard. It was clear they were a couple, holding hands and staring into each other’s eyes.
“People said hello, and they were really nice. After about 45 minutes, they left with their arms around each other and drove off in the same care.”
Charlize is “crazy for Alexander, and he’s nuts about her,” said a close source. “They’ve both been through some bad breakups and want to keep the romance to themselves for the time being. They figured no one would notice them at a gay bar.”
Both Charlize and Alexander “have been scarred by love affairs gone wrong,” said the close source. “Now, with each other, they will perhaps find love and happiness they both deserve.”

While this is hot (anything involving Alex is hot, though), I’m also a little bit creeped out. You know why? They’re too much alike. They even look alike. They’re both crazy tall and all limbs, both with blonde hair and blue eyes, both in their mid-30s. It’s brother-sister, right? There’s something odd about the pairing. Still, on paper, it seems like a good match. They’re close in age, she’s got more stature but he’s a rising star with a lot of heat around him. Now, nobody’s marriage got ‘wrecked but Alex was rumored to be getting “friendly” with Lizzie Olsen at the Spirit Awards and at the post-Oscars Vanity Fair party. It’s not like Alex and Lizzie were coupled up officially though – maybe it was just a flirtation. Or maybe this Charlize thing is BS. Or maybe he’s boning both of them.
Also, I don’t know what to think about the gay bar stuff. That kind of set off my radar/gaydar. Alex has had gay rumors for a while, so it’s possible that Charlize has just found her latest gay BFF. Stacie (who scans the tabs here) suggested that he name them “CharSkar”. I kind of like Charex, though.
