Alexander Skarsgard looks thin, scruffy, dirty in Vancouver: would you hit it?

Alexander Skarsgard is spreading his Viking seed in Canada these days. He’s working on a film called Hidden in Vancouver – the film is about “a family in North Carolina that has to take refuge in a bomb shelter after an apocalyptic event.” The film also stars Andrea Riseborough, who looks unrecognizable in this photos – the Blanchett is strong in her. These photos are from the set – according to FameFlynet, “Alexander shows the family the entrance to the bomb shelter under a piece of wood.” Because “wood” protects people from A) nuclear fallout, B) biological warfare and C) zombies. WOOD!

Anyway, shall we talk about how NOT HOT Alex is in these photos? Part of the problem, I suppose, is that he’s not supposed to look good. He’s supposed to look like a father who is trying to protect his family from a “dangerous outbreak” of slim-cut pants, running water and electric razors. Why are his clothes so baggy? If this is supposed to be BEFORE the outbreak, shouldn’t he have more meat on his bones? Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure he’s still a long, lanky, beast of a man, and I’m sure the baggy clothes are just playing tricks on me. But he looks really, really skinny here. If Alex was a girl, we would be analyzing the possibility that he had an eating disorder.

So, would you hit it? Would you ever have hit it? I would have hit it if this was Alex in his hot “Bang me in the middle of a hurricane” Calvin Klein commercial. But in these photos… probably not.

    I was going to say all day every day, but then I saw the photos! Yikes!!

  2. sara says:

    These pictures are from a scene that comes AFTER they’ve already been living underground for a year. Hence why they all look skinny and dirty.

  3. Genevieve says:

    Yes. YES. Repeatedly and with great vigor.

    In fact I could imagine making him my sex slave. OK, TMI, I’m leaving this post for my own good ;)

  4. beyonce's bump says:

    Well this just goes to show that for the most part we have some control over how we want people to perceive us physically cuz this aint my sexy viking in these pics. No no it aint. *shakes head*

  5. silken_floss says:

    100000000 x YES! Even as a dirty looking hobo. I’m not worried about it because we all know he cleans up nicely :)

  6. maemay says:

    Looks like a walking dead zombie.

  7. Ari says:

    skarsgard and zombies? im so there. and yes i would still hit it. its not like if he ever made the OBVIOUS CHOICE of banging me that i wouldnt allow the man access to the shower and a razor ;)

  8. howardshome says:

    After a good scrub and a layer of make-up I would yes.

  9. elllie66 says:

    oh yes!! I would hit that all day long!

  10. sara says:

    In case you need a reminder of what it looks like when he eats and showers….

  11. Samigirl says:

    I don’t care what these pictures look like. I don’t care if he’s 90. He will always be hit-able to me. He exudes sexiness.

  12. Gwen says:

    Yes, I would. So much yes :D I love scruffy Alex.

    I think this is how he normally looks size-wise. AFAIK he has to put on about 10 kg of muscle for True Blood. He looked the same more or less when he did Melancholia – minus the dirt obviously.

  13. Fabianne says:

    Yes. I would still hit it. Always. I imagine this is AFTER the outbreak so of course he’s supposed to look pale and malnourished.

  14. TIMR says:

    DEAR GOD!!!!
    what have they done to my Skars? wld still hit though.

  15. Dref22 says:

    Nope, I wouldn’t touch him. Then again, I’m not crazy for him.

  16. Chatcat says:

    Skars isn’t a tingle raiser for me. I do like him as Eric in TB and Eric can make me tingle with his sarcasm, wit and looks he throws around…but just a mild case.

    Besides that for me, he does look gaunt here. I hope it’s just for his role and that it isn’t something more or hasn’t/doesn’t turn an eating disorder. I saw a pic of him in People or somewhere heading into a movie theatre a week or so ago, he looked fine but a bit lonely and sad. Maybe he is just miserable because he is losing weight for his role. I am always miserable when I am hungry.

    • cr says:

      When he stops working out, as I’m presuming he has for this role, he loses muscle mass pretty quickly. He’s naturally lean when he doesn’t work out.
      I suspect that both he and Andrea Riseborough have restricted their diets for the shoot.
      Luckily for them shoot ends in a couple of weeks and they can stop looking like hobos and go back to their normal diets.

      I also think he looks more gaunt because of both clothing and makeup, and not just weight loss.

  17. A says:

    Yes. I would hit it so hard. He’s a f-king man, and not a boy.

  18. lori says:

    I’m a big girl so in his current state I might break him. LOL! Yeah…..I’d still hit it.

  19. seVen says:

    I’d hit it so good… oh youre a dirty boy… nevermind.

  20. Jen34 says:

    Do you have to ask? Nothing a little soap, water and cake couldn’t take care of. Yep, I’d hit it hard.

  21. Abby says:

    I’d hit it so hard, he might break a hip. Even thinner than normal, his hands stay generously manly and they are fantasy material all on their own. Gawd, those hands! I would make him shower first though. He looks like he might have stinky butt here …..

  22. Devon says:

    Oh my gosh, YES!

    You know what irks me so much about this? For the last 3 years or so, I’ve been WAITING for Alex to come to Vancouver so I could MAYBE see him in person. I lived downtown Vancouver, right in the area where a lot of actors stay and I’ve run in to a few celebs. It could have happened. BUT, the DAY he shows up to film this movie, was the DAY I MOVED TO SCOTLAND! I’m happy I moved, Edinburgh has been wonderful so far, but REALLY? THE SAME FREAKING DAY? *sob* Just. My. Luck.

    Ok, end rant. ;-)

    • The Real MJ says:

      Dang! Well, if it’s any consolation, you might not have recognized him had you run into him on the street here. He looks like he should be sitting on a corner on Commercial Drive, playing a didgeridoo while hanging onto a rope with a pitbull on the end.

      • Devon says:

        LMAO! He does look like he’d fit in on Commercial! Dang hippies!

        I think I would recognize him anywhere! I was sitting in my new flat a day or two after I arrived here and saw pictures of him at the Scotiabank Theatre on Burrard and I almost dropped my lap top. I had this look of shock on my face and my husband asked what was wrong. I couldn’t talk. I was so flabbergasted. Literally 5 BLOCKS from my old place… *sigh* Guess I’m just going to have to wait for him to come to Scotland.

  23. sheila says:

    well, he did lose some weight for this role, it’s not just the clothes…

    and I’d still hit it. :D

  24. Bulshit says:

    Even if he wore diapers, stiletto hills, full on drag costume..I’d still hit it…..drooling..someone needs to clone this man already!!

  25. Megan says:

    He looks like an overgrown Macauley Culkin here! Not hot!

  26. RTR_Girl says:

    I’d hit it like it owed me money. A lot of money.

  27. Isabel says:

    For me I think it’s the height.. I can just imagine him towering over me.. Ohboooyyy. So yes Kaiser, I would hit it, in every possible way.
    *takes icecold shower now*

  28. LeeLoo says:

    I don’t do giant men and with reason. I briefly dated a 6’7 man. 13 inches taller than my 5’6.5 self. When you get someone who is that much taller, the dynamics and certain positions become an issue. Plus giant men tire easily.

  29. Axis2ClusterB says:

    Yep. I’d still hit it. In fact, I can’t imagine it doing anything at all that would change my mind about that!

  30. Jenna says:

    A few years ago, I would’ve hit it so hard. But I wouldn’t have hit it for quite some time now. Probably b/c of a certain ex. Though I can still admire the pretty, which he isn’t at the moment.

  31. Dahlia1947 says:

    Eeeek! NO way! Too skinny and dirty. lol

  32. Anna says:

    Guys can have eating disorders too…

  33. RHONYC says:

    he’s givin’ sexy Jesus/Jim Carrey vibes…nuttin’ wrong with that. ;-)

  34. DreamyK says:

    Yes, yes and YES! I hope he grows his hair out again. My god is that man lovely.

  35. claire says:

    I think he looks cute. Bad awful middle part in his hair – aside.

  36. MissCubbie says:

    Yes – I’ll help him clean up.

  37. lilla fröken says:

    I’m Scandinavian so he isn’t that skinny to me. Your Americans should be more concerned about your own eating disorder, and by that I mean obesity. Just saw 9th season of US Biggest Loser. US is the most obese country in the world. All the members of Skarsfamily are very skinny compared to American people. It runs in family.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Right, because The Biggest Loser is a perfect representation of EVERY American. You also realize that the US is a GIANT country right? It’s a bit unfair to lump us all in together. Although your opinion is less valid, given your apparent predilection for US reality TV shows. My guess is that Scandinavian programming must REALLY suck.

    • RHONYC says:

      day-yum Lilla, i wish i would’ve caught your comment early and warned you to get out your umbrella for the sh*t storm. lmao!

      take it in good stride & stop frontin’…you know you love Mickey D’s just like the rest of us! i kid. :lol:

  38. cellabowi says:

    He looks like Jim Carrey in these.

  39. ToastedSkin says:

    yes yes and a million times yes. He’s just so tall…and yummy.
    He actually looks really good in the first picture, probably cause the baggy pants arent that visible.
    But of course, I prefer him with more muscles.

  40. Andrea says:

    To follow with the obesity in the US comments above, there totally is a huge problem in the US with obesity! I am an american who recently moved to Canada and there are far fewer obese people up here. It is all about fast food and unhealthy eating out in the US and people don’t care about their health (which is ironic because many do not have healthcare either). For those who get offended, you probably are drinking too much soda, eating too much unhealthy things, drinking and or smoking too muchand refuse to give it up. Wake up! Btw, skarsgard still looks hot to me.

    • Jen34 says:

      You are correct that obesity is a huge problem in the US. However, it is a problem not limited to the US.

      I also think it’s partly regional. I’ve lived in Seattle, New York, and now a suburb of NY, and it seems like I’m always surrounded by thin people. Go figure.

      • Andrea says:

        Funny I lived in the hudson valley of NY (where I grew up), eastern NC, northern VA, and buffalo NY before moving to Canada and I was surrounded by obese people everywhere but northern va and the hudson valley (there are some there also but not many).

  41. melior says:

    It’s all about the height people! It’s all about the height.

  42. anna says:

    He looks like he needs a shower, and a burger, or 4.
    I’d still hit it. I will gladly volunteer to join him in the shower, and help him wash his back, and other things too :)

  43. jaye says:

    I’d hit it like a hammer. And not one of those manual wood and metal ones. I hit it like one of those pneumatic air hammers. Yeah. ‘Scuse me…I have to go…um…do something.

  44. A. B. says:

    I would do dirty filthy things to that man.

  45. Minx says:

    I’d hit that like a wino on Wednesday.

  46. Ashling says:

    I’d feed him and help cure whatever wasting disease he had. THEN I would hit it. I love the man, but he looks near death in these shots.

  47. Amy says:

    No! Gross! How’d they make his beautiful, beautiful chest look concave!? I love the guy, but I will pass on this version of him.

  48. twoblues says:

    Yes, I would hit that. Multiple times.

  49. Bulshit says:

    I would hit it until exhaustion!! Merry me scarzie! I m just a regular nobody!

  50. Mourning the Death of Music says:

    I’d absolutely hit it.

    I would hit it on a boat.
    I would hit it, but not with a goat.
    And I would hit it in the rain.
    And in the dark. And on a train.
    And in a car. And in a tree.
    He is so good, so damn good you see!

    So I would hit it in a box.
    And I would hit it, on the sly like a fox.
    And I would hit it in a house.
    But I promise you, we won’t be quiet like a mouse.
    And I would hit it here and there.
    Say! I would hit that ANHYWHERE!

    I do so like that tasty man!

    Thank you!
    Thank you,
