    I don’t think anything sinister happened. It’s fairly obvious that he just underestimated the power of the California sun. Besides, who’s brave enough to take on the Viking?

  2. marie says:

    see Miss Kiki and Izzy, this is what your fighting does.. I’ll be in the back helping him lick his wounds, ha ha..

    Happy Friday everyone!

  3. Eve says:

    I never thought his face was pretty to begin with…*shrugs*

    • RocketMerry says:

      Me too, Eve.
      I’m just not into skinny dudes with blond hair, bland complexion and bony faces. He’s just “eh”, to me.

      I’ll also say something about Richie: she looks thinner but not as thin as she used to. Still, if it’s indeed true that she is having huge fights with the husband about who cheated first and harder, then this might be her sickness coming up again: look at me, I’m thin/fashionable/desirable/lovable. We never really get rid of that, it’s always there in the back of our heads, and I wish her the best if that’s the illness acting up again.
      Guess we’ll see if she gets back into shape or gets worse shortly.

      • Happy21 says:


        I have never got the big deal about him either. He does nothing at all for me, not even a quiver!

        Nicole Richie has always looked too thin to me. She doesn’t look sooo thin here. I think she lives life with an eating disorder period. She always looks malnourished to me.

    • Polk8dot says:

      You know, I had the same reaction to him for years.
      Then I saw a movie from 2011 called ‘Straw Dogs’.

      I will never ever again think him skinny, bony, bland or meh.

      Watch it and then see what you think.

      I’m getting hot flashes just remembering………… (cold shower running now)

  4. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Where is Izzy?? She will be positively LIVID.

  5. jinni says:

    He always looks like he’s on the verge of dying/looks sickly or has severe allergies. The only difference is he doesn’t have his typical clammy, sweat, sheen coating his skin to go along with the puffy red rimmed eyes of his. I never got this guy hype, but I guess all it takes is some height and defined abs to be considered goodlooking nowadays.

  6. lori says:

    That hat does nothing for those ears….my word.

  7. KellyinSeattle says:

    I’ve never really thought he was that great looking; reminds me of Lance Armstrong.

  8. RHONYC says:

    y’all know how i feel about it.

    bruised, beaten, bloody, dirt-covered…it’s all good.

    climbing that tall tree truck will never get old. ;-)

  9. mercy says:

    Still looking fine to me. His body is so yum.

  10. Miss Kiki says:

    Who dares to harm My sweet Viking prince? I’m going to f*ck some people up!

  11. Samigirl says:

    I’d STILL hit it. Every. Damn. Time. He OOOOZES sex appeal. Alex, if you’d like someone to nurse you back to health, I’m your lady!

  12. Jane's evil twin says:

    It looks like he had surgery on the bags under his eyes and the recovery didn’t go well.He seems like he is only hot on True Blood as Eric but not so much in real life.

    • cr says:

      Oh, probably not. One, the bags are still there.
      And two, as someone who suffers from severe inhalant allergies, that’s pretty much what I look around the eyes during the ‘bad’ season.
      They’re red and puffy anyway, and then you’re rubbing at them, and they get worse.

  13. j.eyre says:

    I am still giggling about the lead in for the Barbie guy. I had no idea what to expect but yes, as soon as I saw him, that is exactly what I think he would look like.

  14. elceibeno08 says:

    Maybe he’s got conjunctivitis.?

  15. HillbillyintheCorner says:

    Too much sun on fair skinned people like he is and I am and you will puff up like a damn puffer fish……Never have been able to get in the sun and sunbath and have to wear major power sun block on the beach a Hat and long sleeves…..
    By the way if I ever am able to get my family’s story told in a movie …He would have to play my father…. could almost be dad’s twin…..LOL only Dad was better looking…..

  16. Caroline-Vivienne says:

    He never really took off professionally when he got True Blood. It really surprises me. But he lost Thor to Chris Hemsworth. And he hasnt gotten any other notable movie parts. With True Blood waning, I wonder if his time is passing?

    • buckley says:

      I wonder if that TB season where he was under Sookie’s spell resulting in his horrid puppy dog acting has affected his persona…

    • Mr.Smurf says:

      I don’t know about his career waning or not. I remember reading an interview with him, a year or two ago. It was just before he did Battleship. He spoke about how he wanted to do different roles than Erik. About how 99% of the scripts sent to him were basically Erik in a different time period and story. So I think he’s trying, but the public still sees him as “Erik”. Whether or not his career gets any better, I don’t know. If it doesn’t I think he’ll go back to his hometown and work there. He doesn’t seem to need fame as much as some people do.

    • cr says:

      Well, he’s got three, possibly four movies coming out. And he’s being considered for the lead in Tarzan, should that be made.
      Not sure that can be considered ‘waning’.

      • LAK says:

        This conversation is reminding me of the David Boreanaz career trajectory that was predicted to happen but didn’t when he was the breakout male star of Buffy.

        AS has made better choices outside of TB so i can’t see the same fate for him.

      • cr says:

        @LAK: Well, DB still has Bones, but he never made the successful transition to the movies. Neither did David Caruso.
        Sometimes that happens.
        And Alex in the last two years has been able to film 4 movies, even with the limited time available due to the TB filming schedule.
        So I think it’s highly premature to consider his career as waning.
        And if he doesn’t become a blockbuster movie leading man type, but still get interesting and well-received roles, I think he’s probably alright with that.

      • LAK says:

        @cr – I am completely biased by my dislike of blockbusters especially of the kind put out these days.

        I wouldn’t see it as a bad thing if he never made that transition. However, i do want him to transition as successfully as Johnny Depp/Leonardo di Caprio/Bruce Willis/Michael Douglas/George Clooney did from TV.

        I like his choices away from TV. His interviews show someone who is a thespian rather than a famewhore. He is invested enough in the fame aspect to make it work, but he says he is seeking out auteurs rather than blockbuster franchises. I think his childhood trauma over fame means he will never be as fame hungry as some other actors with his profile might be. And he says he doesn’t want to do anything that looks like ‘ERIK’ which is borne out by the choices he has made. That said, he has some splaining to do for BATTLESHIP.

        I remember David B’s interviews from that era, and he wasn’t as prepared or focused or even an ‘actor’ in the thespian tradition. It just seemed like a ride for him and he wasn’t too bothered if he didn’t transition.

        David C was just a tit. He thought he was owed big screen fame. He made bad choices and was difficult to work with.

    Britney definitely got herself a new set of weird, downward pointing bolt ons. (You can tell that the bra is super thin and not padded by the lacy outline, the way she’s (still) sagging and the nip show through.) From what I’ve been told, implant surgery is excruciating so I don’t understand how all these celebs, some admitedly, keep replacing or having them taken out on the reg. YIKES.

    That Sofia Vergara Machete Kills poster made me do a big double take! I mean, really?? :D I have to admit that I liked Machete-I’m a big Danny Trejo fan-so, I guess it’s sort of fitting with the theme…

  18. von says:

    poor guy can’t have a bad day without cameras following him around – I wear hats when Im having a bad hair day and would hate to have my pre coffee eye bags in a photo on the net

  19. Looking rough says:

    Alex only dates 20yr old blonde models, skeleton body type and really tall in Sweden he dated models.
    He must have had some hard boney sex with a model on that rug he took to the dry cleaners in the sets of pics.
    Where else did he get that bruise from
    dirty old man.

  20. buckley says:

    Does he have something against proper fitting jeans?

  21. Sara says:

    He looks like hes been up all night partying. I think the constant puffiness under his eyes is from all the partying.

  22. Chelle says:

    Looks like crack face to me…

  23. Jag says:

    Looks like he either got punched in the nose or had a nose job. The tip is swollen and the double black eyes is what I had, too, when I got my nose done. The bridge is red from where he took off the cast. (A big no-no!)

  24. erica says:

    He looks like Opie Taylor in these pics.

  25. cr says:

    If he had a nose job, don’t you think they’d have made it less bulbous, or gotten rid of the eye bags? Both are still there. Like they were just a few weeks ago at Sundance:


    Heck, he was red and puffy last week, but it’s more obvious in the recent pics.

    And do you really think if he’s going to have plastic surgery he’s going to have it in the middle of filming TB?

  26. babybarbie says:

    i dont like alex he is too skinny

  27. CC says:

    He didn’t have anything done, but he’s not good at taking care of himself, obviously. Those baggy eyes come from badly slept night (whatever the reason). And don’t even get me started on the clothes….

  28. Claire says:

    That man does nothing for me!
