Alex Skarsgard needs some under-eye cream in Rome: would you still hit it?

I’ve gotten to the point where I consistently want to bang Alex Skarsgard, but before I take off his clothes, I want to slather some under-eye cream on whatever he’s got going on there. I’m not one of those ladies who gets skittish about a dude who looks his age, or even older than his age. I love Michael Fassbender, for the love of God, and that boy looks about a decade older than his actual age. Alex is only 36 years old – some under-eye cream would definitely help, right? And then we can hit it. Anyway, these are some nice, new photos of Alex at the Rome Fiction Fest (?) on Friday. He looks really good – except for his eyes. He just looks exhausted. Probably from all of the Viking sex.

In other Skars-news, I kind of love how celebrities really have to sit down and do real interviews when they become “the face” of a brand. Alex is the current face of Calvin Klein’s Encounter, and not only does he have to travel the world promoting the brand (and talking about his love of sausage smells), but he has to sit down and give interviews to the Wall Street Journal about it too. Here are some highlights from Alex’s WSJ piece (you can read the full thing here).

Working with Calvin Klein and Lara Stone: “It’s my first kind of campaign. This felt like the right one because of a combination of things. First of all, Calvin is a great house. I was very flattered. Creatively, it felt interesting. I worked with [French art director and director of the short film] Fabien Baron, who is arguably one of the greatest art directors of our time and he’s behind all of their legendary campaigns. I’ve also worked with Lara Stone. Peter Lindbergh shot us two years ago together for Vogue and she is so great—so great—so much fun to work with and laid back and no ego, just very cool girl.”

Learning how to wear cologne: “Yeah, I do. I think the trick is in moderation. I think what’s very sexy is we all have our personal scent, kind of like our fingerprint, so unique. The trick is not to overpower that. You want the marriage between your scent and the fragrance. That creates something very sensual to me. As a young teenager I made the mistake of going all in and it was like a cloud. I was going to this disco when I was 13, like a school dance, and I just discovered fragrances. I had five different bottles and I thought they all smelled great so I figured that combining them was a great idea. I ended up alone, in a corner of the dance. People were 50 feet away because I was just a cloud of perfume walking around. I learned the hard way that less is more.”

He puts cologne on like a girl: “One spray of the fragrance, that’s kind of it. Wrists [dabbing his writs] and then bottom of my ears I do that [moved one wrist to one ear]and then like that [moved other wrist to his other ear].”

Going to “dark places” in his work: “I know. I need to talk to my shrink about that. I don’t know what that is about. What’s wrong with me?”

[From The Wall Street Journal]

There’s also an exchange where he’s asked about the rumors that he could play Christian Grey in a film adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey. Alex first says, “I haven’t read the script. I don’t think there is a script out yet.” When he’s asked if he’s read the books, he says, “No, are they good?” The WSJ guy says, “Uh, they’re something.” And Alex replies: “I like something.” Then Alex pretty much says that he would totally do the movie if they managed to give him a good script for it: “I haven’t read the books. I know how tremendously successful they are and how people are obsessed, so of course I’m flattered if some people out there wants to see me do that. But it’s difficult to say. Step one is always read the script for me. I get the script, I read it and then I feel something or I don’t. You either connect and you feel like this is a character that you want to spend a couple of months with or you don’t….” That’s basically a yes, I think. Which is disappointing. But I guess he’s being diplomatic too, like, he’s saying that we would never say “no” to anything without first reading the script.

    still asking? always and forever..

    and stop it with 50 Shades, I hate it-I hate that it’s bringing more crap writing out, more crap being published.. There are much better books out there that could be made into movies.

  2. Mirella says:

    Yes I would. Repeatedly. He’s had bags under his eyes since he was a kid.

  3. dooliloo says:

    Geebus he’s so tall.. Like a Swedish tree!
    Didn’t he say he liked the smell of sausages and not house fragrances? And don’t house fragrances smell like perfume though? Oh well..must be tricky with Calvin Klein eh…
    No he does nothing to me… I don’t know he reminds me of a Swedish deer with his eyes and bags etc.

  4. Missy says:

    It’s the heavy drinking finally catching up to him

  5. effy says:

    Am seeing this dude as handsome for the first time.
    not the height, the face.. looks good. he might only be tired.

  6. Kaye says:

    If you google images of a young Alexander, you will see that he had dark circles/bags under his eyes as a child. My grandmother called them “allergy shiners.”

  7. cr says:

    He’s had those eye bags since he was a child, here’s a still from Åke and His World:

    It gets worse when he’s tired (and yes, drinking).

    I’d still hit it.

  8. Gwen says:

    You need to ask? LOL :D YES!

    I’m not liking his answers about the unmentionable one bit, but I guess it would be bad form to simply laugh it off and say no way, the book is a piece of shit. Or rather: I don’t think he’s in a position where he can say that. Also – he *is* an actor – what actor would not be just a little pleased about being mentioned over and over again in conncetion with a project that might end up being huge? It must feel flattering.

  9. Micki says:

    No offence but his eyes were like that last year too!
    I always got funny feelings when all his fans crooned and swooned over him

  10. Liz says:

    It shouldn’t even be a question anymore. I would ALWAYS hit it. Without question or hesitation!

  11. Annie says:

    Pale skinned folk just can never hide the hungover face.

  12. Cathy says:

    His eyebags have layers. I’m not sure if I’d boink him or not. I don’t find him really attractive.

  13. Laura says:

    You’d think after years of writing about him you’d realize by now that his eyebags are genetic? And everyone in his family has them? And it doesn’t stop people from being attracted to him?

    • Minx says:

      ^This. He’s beautiful inside and out and probably too polite (from most reported accounts) to outright trash 50 Shades of Crap. I’m guessing he knows a lot of his fans are all gung-ho to see him take on the role, and while I think he’d knock it out of the park, it’s still stigmatized at this point. So yeah, basically irredeemable. I liked his response. It’s professional without giving the sense of smacking his fans with the verbal equivalent of a rolled up newspaper.

      Oh, and would I hit it? Like it owed me money.

  14. HadleyB says:

    He may have had under eye bags as a child but it’s obvious it’s not the same — they are worse, much worse, his eyes are red, and there is massive wrinkles now. Much much different than childhood or genetic eye bags.

    He’s getting busted, from age, drinking, drugs whatever . partying too much as his age will catch up with you faster than ever and it’s showing on his face.

  15. Heather says:

    I would hit it until the cops come knocking .

  16. Jenna says:

    Not for some time now, but I always appreciate the sight of him rocking a suit. Hello, Skarsie. :)

  17. blues says:

    I would!!!He looks very good in this suit :) I like the bags under his eyes, it’s unique ;) , in other images from Rome, they are much less visible. Besides, he looks happy and finally able to eat normally again after the diet for “Hidden”

  18. Jen34 says:

    I would hit it until I lost consciousness.

    And as previous posters have mentioned, Alex has allergies.

  19. j.eyre says:

    He is not on my Hit List but I think those bags under his eyes adds character, which I like.

  20. Chicagogurl17 says:

    Oh dear god he couldn’t run away fast enough before I pounced.

  21. Izzy says:

    I like him better clean-shaven, but the truth is I don’t care. I’d hit it in every way, every day. I love my Viking-dong.

  22. Viking says:

    ThE man is a heavy drinker and partier and sleeps with anything that comes his way but they have to be boney models before he hits it and he did say once he drinks like a Viking.

    His age is creeping up and is showing in 4 yrs he is 40 grow up Alex.

  23. A Fan says:

    The more banged-up a man looks, the better his girlfriend/wife does.

  24. Christina says:

    Has he stopped bleaching his hair? Looks like he’s gone back to his natural colour.

    Oh, and the answer to your question is yes. Is any other answer even possible?

  25. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    I adore my tall, dorky Viking, so of course I would hit it! I’d love to know what he smells like… :)

  26. Ashling says:

    His eye bags make him look more like a real person. Sexy is more than just looks. His acting and personality makes him sexy.
