Alex Skarsgard & Charlize Theron might be hooking up in random gay bars

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.

    Oh! Viking Sex God – love it

    • Jenny B says:

      I think she has a thig for vampires. She traded the vampire Lestat de Lioncourt for the vampire Eric Northman lol I like her taste…

  2. Mirella says:

    Mmmmmm Alex….

  3. Helvetica says:

    Probably just one night stand like she did with Gosling and Sean Penn a few years ago

  4. Laura says:

    They were also at dinner together the same night they went to that bar, but with a group of people. Would be so into this.

  5. sarah says:

    my oh my, this two will make really cute babies. I don’t know why but in my head Charlize seemed much older. I was surprised reading that they don’t have noticable age difference

  6. Nessa says:

    I like this pairing. Hopefully this turns out to be true.

    • DreamyK says:

      So loving the idea of the two of them. They would give Brangelina a run for their money in the gorgeous department.

      • rufustfirefly says:

        I was thinking the exact same thing…a serious new power couple alert! I’ve always been very “meh” about Brad and Angie, but these two? Oh my!

  7. Fabianne says:

    Just because they look good doesn’t mean it works. But they’re adults. They can do whatever they want. And they thought no one would recognized them or pay attention to them? Ha.

    • Ginger says:

      Seriously, that is what I was thinking. If they didn’t want to be recognized, they would need to go some place they truly aren’t known, like an old person restaurant, where people don’t twitter or use Facebook. Or a restaurant deep in an immigrant community which there are plenty of in LA. Because they aren’t as well known.

      Oh and – how pissed do you think the Bos will be over this paring. They break up and his next relationship, become the next big tabloid front cover.

  8. Cerulean says:

    I don’t believe he is gay. Ted C shot that down a few years ago. I have been to a gay bar with my husband. No big deal. We happened to be friends with some of the people who go there and my hubs is secure in his sexuality so its all fun. Our gay friends are always coming to straight places I figure it’s only fair.

    It is a little aryan for my taste but the pap shots would be something worth seeing.

    • SHump76 says:

      I don’t believe he’s gay. I think he’s got a bit of that European thing going on (like Ewan McGregor) and he’s just comfortable in his sexuality.

      • rufustfirefly says:

        Ted C. has been pushing the whole gay/Nelly Fang story for a long time, but even he’s been all over the map with his spin. First he had NF trolling for tricks in the bushes at Griffith Park, then he was banging chicks by the trailer-load. The only thing Ted’s been consistent with is trying to point the rumor in Alex’s direction. I still believe Alex has been pretty up front about his sexuality. He was asked by gay mags in Sweden long before he became a hit over here. His response was “I’m pretty sure I only like girls”. If he were gay or bi, it would have been common knowledge over there. I don’t think he cares about the gay rumors though, and why should he? Most of his fans don’t care either. Straight, gay, bi…whatever. The man is hot!!!

      • Lilla says:

        I’m from Stockholm, there were never gay rumors about him. I just think Ted C wants him to be. 🙂

  9. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    I’m confused, how would they got unnoticed at a Gay Bar? Wouldn’t they just go unnoticed by the opposite sex? What a silly statement.

    • liza says:

      They were in Hollywood, and lots of people saw them there, so that’s true. The whole holding hands and staring deeply into each other’s eyes thing is up for debate though.

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      @Asli, I’m not usually a fan of blondes, but A Skars is SUPER sexy! SWOON 😍

    • Madisyn says:

      Hey Mort

      That was my first thought too. Like ASkars wouldn’t get ‘noticed’ in a gay bar? Is the writer of this story out of their ever lovin mind? Thats like saying Charlize wouldn’t get ‘noticed’ in a mens prison. The men in that bar would have thought they died and went to heaven. If I saw him in person, I know I would. YUM!

  10. Eleonor says:

    That will be a HOT couple! And the babies..with those genese! good Lord.

  11. cr says:

    Is this the same Enquirer that had Alex and KB living together and practically engaged a year ago? And then had him so distraught over the breakup and couch surfing with friends in LA-never mind that there was ample photographic evidence that he was out and about in NYC?

    Could they be a new couple? Sure, but I’ll take anything from the Enquirer with a large grain of salt.

    • Laura says:

      He and Kate were living together

    • cr says:

      @mirella, yep, it was, either it was made up by the Enquirer on their own, or someone else made it up and fed them the story, but there was never any evidence that they ever actually moved in together.

      • Mirella says:

        I think they said his friend Bjorn said it & he denied it.

      • cr says:

        @Mirella, Bjorn? Really? One thing about Alex is his friends do not seem to talk about him to the press, so I highly doubt Bjorn would talk to anyone, much less the Enquirer. I wonder if someone was playing a game with the Enquirer.

      • Mirella says:

        Bjorn wouldn’t say anything. Ever. So, you’re probably right, either the magazine made it up, or someone pretended to be him.

    • bns says:

      “drove off in the same care.” Some typos are just funny to me. This actually sounds believable, despite being in the Enquirer. They’re hot together. I like it.

  12. Aiobhan says:

    For some reason I refuse to believe that if Alex was gay he would be in the closet about it. Now I would believe that he was having sex with everything under the sun because he is such a sex fiend.
    Charex kinda sounds like the hook-up that it really is-if true. She seems to be enjoying her singledom and so does he. I hope they are having fun.

    • CC says:

      Right. Because being out of the closet and declaring himself gay or bi doesn’t hurt a male actor’s career at all.

      It’s funny, really, but the double standard is that female actors can get away with being bi and proudly declaring so, even, but how many male actors do the same? Oh right. Zero?

      • demian bichir says:

        To be totally honest i think that any actor in Hollyweird is gay or bi so…It doesn’t really matter if it’s about their families, friends, political views or their sexual preferences, where they live?,or their dog’s name ( Yes i’m looking at you Jacques!),etc…
        The public doesn’t have to know about everything because then it’s the end of any actor who wants a different variety of great roles.How many types of lead role HWOOD offers to male actors?The supermacho gangster,the superhero,the funny comedian,and the serious (versatile) actor,the guy in rom/coms.
        The gay actor comes out= no more lead role in HW. Simple as that.

        I don’t really believe in the double standards about women having it easier either they all say the same old shtick.A sexy,young and beautiful actress say:
        “I’m bi”=possibility for threesomes = men fantasies =OK!COOL!= Great where do i sign=My name is Joe Shmoe!Hey Charlie Sheen i was here first!
        You never hear about any serious A List actress say hey i’m GAY!NEVER!

  13. Jen34 says:

    I really like this and hope it’s true.

  14. liza says:

    Aww, it’s cute they thought they might not be noticed. All the gays in WeHo were chattering on Twitter when they showed up.

    And I disagree Kaiser, the fact that they’re both ridiculously tall and blonde and blue-eyed makes it hotter to me (I swear I’m not a white supremacist or something….)

  15. poof says:

    I like these two together. I hope its true.

  16. UKHels says:

    it’s a bit ‘aryan nation’ but I wouldn’t mind if he hooked up with her, she’s cool

  17. shannon says:

    I know straight guys who go to gay clubs/bars, they just happen to be European & very comfortable with their sexuality. Like Alex. Hope this is true. I’m really feeling them as a couple, as both are hot & have great sense of humors. Major upgrade, Alex.

  18. I wish he was gay! haha He’s so hot, and when he lost his memory in True Blood he’s so cute >_< haha
    I do like Charlize though so they'd be a pretty good couple.

  19. riri says:

    i hope this is false…i don’t like her at all!!!

    • liza says:

      I didn’t know there were people who didn’t like her. She’s a great actress, beautiful, and mostly keeps to herself. Why the dislike?

      • Fabianne says:

        She’s been described by gossip blogger Lainey L. as “high drama crazy” and “a handful”.

  20. Jenna says:

    Oh brother. Once more, pics or I won’t believe it. And if they did hook up, so what? I don’t think this is the end-all, be-all for either of them.

  21. HadleyB says:

    Please don’t name them anything is my only comment. I am still not over Bennifer . I hate name combo’s.

  22. Siren6 says:


  23. Roma says:

    When I read that they were hanging out at the Gym Sportsbar patio I was going to call BS, as it’s not patio weather in NYC. When did they open one in West Hollywood??

    Maybe they thought there would be less tourists or paps at a gay bar, as opposed to the Ivy?

    • Faghag says:

      That’s a good point Roma. Gym in WeHo is less than a mile from the Ivy. Paps would have been there in a hot second. It’s been 83 degrees here in LA. Def patio weather 🙂

  24. Sumodo1 says:

    I love the idea of them as a couple.

  25. Faghag says:

    i don’t buy it! The LAST place they would go unnoticed is at Gym. It is a teeny tiny bar full of True Blood die hards.. the bartender there, Jesse, had auditioned for True Blood and looks remarkably like Alex. Most likely, a case of mistaken identity. Had they been there, I would have heard about it. The news would have spread like wildfire through WeHo.

    • cr says:

      For someone who looks like he does, there do seem to be quite a few ‘fake’ sightings or mistaken IDs on him.
      Or they’ve cloned him, so the ‘real’ Alex is off working, and the ‘clone’ is off partying.
      And there were tweets of them being there but no photos? No papped ones or people using their phone cameras?

    • Sandra says:

      A credible person (@MSLisaChang on twitter) said they were both with one of her friends. WeHoDaily also tweeted about it. Just because everyone has cell phone cameras now doesn’t mean everyone is a snoop.

      • cr says:

        Oh, I’m not saying they weren’t out and about, but with everyone tweeting everything I think I’m presuming since they’re doing that they might as well take the pic to document it.
        Perhaps they were being polite and not doing so.

      • So So says:

        How does this MSLisaChang become a credible person. She wasn’t even there. Didn’t she tweet once herself about her friend at the gym staring at Alex and now all of a sudden another friend of hers hangs out with him and Charlize. I find it totally out of the blue all of this. I have not seen anything to proof any of this other than a few tweets of Charlize being at the gym bar and that’s it. Nothing about Alex there were tweets the follow days that place them solo at different venues. If they were seen at VF party chatting now this I would say totally. But out of the blue and no where how did they meet up why do they have gay guys as buffers. Everyone knows gay guy gossip a lot this was the gossip we got. But this Miss Lang is as credible as NY post was about EO and Alex.

      • Faghag says:

        Add the Gym bar is very exposed and that my friends aren’t shy about getting pics with celebs or tweeting celeb sightings……I call BS.

      • Grouper says:

        Haha why are you so hostile so so? My friend saw both Alex and Charlize leaving the restaurant Mohawk in LA, but they were with other people

      • So So says:

        @Grouper not hostile at all. It’s just so many reports but nothing concrete. I mean just last week everyone was celebrating EO and Alex having be the new hot couple. Now we making a super race with these two. But if I was to believe you I have to believe Fag she has friends that work there and they didn’t see him or them together. I just call BS on the whole thing.

    • faghag says:

      Well I stand corrected. I asked around and they were in fact there. There are pictures on various cell phones. What a weird place for them to go.

      • Sandra says:

        As part of your contrition for being so doubtful, YOU NEED TO ACQUIRE AND POST THE PICTURESSSSSSSSSS.

        Were they “together” or “together together”? haha

      • cr says:

        I never had a doubt that they were there, there were various tweets about them, it’s the rest of the Enquirer’s story that I have doubts about.
        As for why they were there, why not?

  26. cr says:

    There seems to be much more enthusiasm for them as a couple, as opposed to his previous relationship.
    Perhaps because Charlize is seen as a smart, independent woman with a career of her own (and therefore probably won’t be calling the paps on any outings they might have)?

    • rufustfirefly says:

      Exactly. I can definitely co-sign on this pairing. Too much pretty to handle! I would love it if this is true. I just hope he would be willing to share it once in a while (okay lots) with pics and smiles and just a bit of giggly PDA! 😉

      • reddmasters says:

        ITA and they are equals in all respects; who wouldn’t want to be in her shoes?

  27. Devon says:

    Nooooooooooooooo! Bitch be ALL SORTS of crazy! She’s gorgeous but psycho. If this is true, please let this be a hit and quit it deal.

  28. eyeroll says:

    So he really is just a famewhore like Kate Bosworth.
    Only dating famous girls like Ryan Reynolds.

    • Sandra says:

      That has got to be the stupidest comment I’ve read in a while. Actors dating actors doesn’t make anyone a famewhore. Being a famewhore entails having the paparazzi follow your every move (he’s been papped like twice in the last four months), talking about your relationships in the press (he doesn’t), going to random red carpet events for no reason (rare).

      So what was your point again?

    • cr says:

      @Mirella, I think he’s had 2 actual pap shots in four months (not counting official type events like GG and Oscar parties). If he was out famewhoring we’d be getting a lot more pap shots. But we’re not. With the rare exception of the last two weeks, he’s been pretty much able to go out and about and not be bothered.

  29. Nev says:


  30. T.C. says:

    I’m into this couple. Two beautiful people.

  31. Rachel says:

    Dirty lies! He’s saving himself for me!

  32. Wendi says:

    I actually like this pairing. First, they’re the same age. Second, it’s seems relatively “equal” in a talent, if not yet recognition sort of way. Third, neither of them lay their lives out for tabloid perusal (I blame KB for the constant papping, since she’s still being papped and he isn’t) and I can see the South African + Swede thing working.

    What’s with the “too Aryan” comments? Obviously they’re both blond and ridiculously hot, but isn’t that well… just a little bit racist? Would anyone be saying that sort of crap if they were both brunettes (too mediterranean?) or both black (too African?) or both Asian? Yeesh!

  33. Gia says:

    I don’t know about the guy – he seems a bit of a fancy pants but who can tell these days and who cares. Maybe Theron likes guys who are slightly unavailable since she seems to have problems staying in relationships or they are extremely short lived.

    Remember her background? Raised in Australia and a scandal surrounding her past was that her mother supposedly killed her husband – Charlize was there. Just sayin’,,,,,

    • Sandra says:

      It’s not really a scandal that her mom shot her dad, she’s talked about it before. It’s not some giant rumored secret or something.

    • cr says:

      She was with Stuart Townsend for almost 9-10 years before they broke up a couple of years ago. So it does appear she is capable of a long-term relationship.

    • Devon says:

      She’s South African, not Australian.

  34. The Original Mia says:

    Charlize, I bow to your game. Hit it, girl. Hit it hard & every night.

  35. Gia says:

    oops? she’s from S. Africa….hmmm.

  36. Grace says:

    Elizabeth Olsen and now Charlize Theron, well …

    I’m a new fan of Alexander and I’ve never been so swept away, so I care who he date but why? Do I think I’m going to marry him myself? Yes I do 😉 And I like to admire him, his acting, looks, believes, choices all around and in girlfriends! It’s so stupid, but … never the less, I Can’t help it!

    Elizabeth was very young and I have been bitching about that, because I’m older and it just annoyed me! Charlize is just perfect in every aspect (I’m like so approving this, as if I could), I can’t say anything bad at all, and even though I not happy about it (if true, could be damage control by his pr. people or just nothing), I am laughing at my self!

    I am laughing so much I think I loosing a couple of pounds, I wish the perfect Alexander Skarsgård the very best, of course he can do whatever, he should be the happiest guy on Earth, he has done so much (indirectly) for many (me not the least) and I love him, but now I have to get back to giving the guys around me a chance, god this is fun (Alexander, rumor or not; worshiping) … I’m so going to get ‘real’ and to give them, what I wished he would give to me!

    I love to love Alexander, it’s the very best and funny too!

    • Danziger says:

      I was willing to gave Alex fangirls the benefit of doubt, even after reading some majorly obsessive stuff at Tumblr fanblogs and HBO forum discussions (oh god HBO forum discussions), but my cup of suffering just overflowed.
      This is some majorly creepy shit.

      • Grace says:

        What creepy is your complaining over fangirls, don’t read it then! I do hope that it’s just innocent fun being a fan of Alexander, don’t you? Or are you not that able/quick to read between lines? It’s fun for me, now where/how did that intention fly pass you. Oh, you’re overloaded, so your sence of humor and ability to smile at foolish fangirl infatuations is non existent on that account. Too bad. At least I laugh at my self and is honest enough to put on display what most think anyway! More creepy to me is not to be upfront, even with stupid stuff! So go empty that cup and get some space in your system again!

        Anyway, all that talk about Alexander being gay might be to his and yours advantage then, that’ll cool at lot of us down!

  37. sauvage says:

    I honestly hate myself for saying this, but here we go: I don’t want this to be true BECAUSE I AM A CRAZED OUT SKARSGARD TEENAGE FANGIRL (I’M 31). Because I like Charlize Theron. I think she’s beautiful and she can act. Which means that I respect her. Which means that I have to take her seriously. Bosworth? No competition. One day Alex and I would get married anyway. (Nevermind the ocean between us during most of the year. Imagine me being 13 years old.) Charlize? Yeah, I could see that. Beautiful wedding pictures. Or just beautiful pictures without the wedding part. Cute kids (or just cute dogs).

    I’m going to cry myself to sleep now.

  38. Anna says:

    I guess his handlers and her handlers must read all these gossip sites because for a few years now his die hard fans have said this would make an ideal couple. Another paid for celebrity power couple made by their reps to sell ads, products, etc etc… yawn. I am so tired of Hollywood yet so many fall for it. It is all just to push mass consumerism to an ailing public who cant afford any of this stuff these people try to push.

    • cr says:

      “…now his die hard fans have said this would make an ideal couple..” They were?

      And you’re saying their management have decided to make them a couple for the sole purpose of advertising? Does promoting their movies count as advertising? And even they started shilling for everything under the sun no one is making anyone, least of all you, buy it.

      “…I am so tired of Hollywood yet so many fall for it.” Then why are you even here on a gossip site?

      You sound like you you’re suffering from ennui or something. Unplug, turn off your electronics, go have some chocolate, pet an animal, take a walk, etc.

  39. Cleo says:

    Wow, talk about the road not taken: go the Cameron Diaz boy toy route or become the wife of a Texas billionaire. Decisions, decisons, oh, wait, too late now.

  40. Sarah says:

    Think this will fizzle out!! As someone else pointed out they are too alike and charlize will be wanting to settle down sharpish whe Alex
    may want to play the field. She also seems a bit boring… Perhaps Alex like that I.e Bosworth. He also seems to like blondes.. Try a brunette for a change Alex… We are mysterious, hot and adventurous. It’s that or I’m booking a trip to the salon for some highlights.

  41. Lenore says:

    I quite liked the idea of him and Elizabeth Olsen, but I can’t begrudge him Charlize Theron, for god’s sake. So I choose to believe that they’re all doing it equally. Alex procures innocent young indie actresses to induct into their menage, and Charlize – well, come on. Who wouldn’t go gay for Charlize Theron, especially if there’s bonus Skarsgard on the side?

    …just me? 🙂

    • cr says:

      Kick out the Olsen and throw in a Gina Gershon and Fassbender and it might get interesting.

  42. Katie says:

    They are both good looking (Charlize is so beautiful!), but together, they are like… gross! look alike and stuff…

  43. MrsNix says:

    I’m confused by the “little too Aryan” comments about Charlize, but tiny little blonde/blue eyed Kate Bosworth didn’t seem to suffer the same criticism. He clearly likes blonde women (hardly surprising from a Swedish man), and Charlize has legs for weeks. I think they’re hot together.

    • cr says:

      I too am perplexed over the disappointment that Alex may have hooked up with another blonde. Maybe fans would be happier if Charlize dyed her hair?
      With Kate I think there were so many other criticisms of her that her being blonde was at the bottom of the list.

    • Laura says:

      I think it has to do with her tallness. I mean you imagine two incredibly tall and good looking blondes walking down the street together and “the master race” pops into my head, lol.

      That’s not a criticism or anything, like I said I find the idea of this coupling HOT

      • cr says:

        He’s 6 foot 4 1/2 and she’s what 5 foot 10? So I’d think some fans would be happy that this would be easier for him physically: less neck strain, etc.

      • Asli says:

        @CR – People actually worry about Alex’s neck strain whenever he has to bend down to kiss girls? Whoa. I consider myself a crazy fangirl but that’s over the top. Also, I’m 5’11 ASkars. Pick me!

    • cr says:

      @Asli, I’m joking. Some the forums, including here, have had posters complaining that he seems to favor tall blondes (ignoring the fact that KB is 5 foot 3) so I’m jokingly pointing out the the taller the women the less neck strain for both. And yes, since you’re five foot 11 you should be in the running!
      Also, my BF in HS was 6 foot 7, and I’m 5 foot 6, so just standing and talking in the hallsways between classes could lead to some neck strain.

  44. Laura says:

    You are aware that literally every single actor on the planet has creepy fangirls, right?

  45. Camille (The original) says:

    They do have a brother-sister thing going on now that its been pointed out to me lol, but they’d still make a hot couple.

  46. Anais says:

    Charlize’s ex boyfriends are mostly the tall, dark and handsome type (i.e. Craig Bierko, Stephan Jenkins, Stuart Townsend). Alex is so NOT her type. Hmm, seems like girlfriend has a change in taste for her man.

  47. Simone says:

    For some reason I believe he is gay, I just get that vibe from him, and no I haven’t met the guy, just going by media footage, just like everyone does when they form an opinion about a celeb. I think if they are “dating” its more of a fling since she just adopted a little boy.
