Alexander Skarsgard wants to get you pregnant: ‘I love kids, I want to have kids’

Here are some new photos of Alexander Skarsgard leaving (or entering?) the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills on Saturday. I let my mind wander for a moment and imagined him meeting some sexy young thing for a sultry hotel tryst, but the real story is that he was probably doing a junket in the hotel. Alex has a bunch of new stuff coming out in the coming months – The East AND What Maisie Knew are getting limited releases in May, and “True Blood” is about to start. So Alex is probably doing nonstop press. As for his outfit… he looks comfortable, and that sweater looks especially soft (I want to rub myself on it), but his casual style is always lacking for me.

When Alex was doing press for What Maisie Knew recently, he talked about why he signed on for the movie – basically, it was a chance for him to work with a child actor and experience on-screen fatherhood.

There are no fangs for Alexander Skarsgard in his new movie “What Maisie Knew” and, without making too much of a pun, that’s the point. For the 6-foot-4-inch Swedish actor best known for his role in the HBO series “True Blood” as 1,000-year-old Viking vampire sheriff and local bar owner Eric Northman, this update of Henry James’ novel was intriguing precisely because it was a challenge.

As Lincoln, Skarsgard is a working stiff who marries Susanna (Julianne Moore), a rich, famous and bitterly divorced rock star. Lincoln doesn’t realize he’s merely a pawn in her custody battle for Maisie, the 6-year-old daughter she doesn’t want — but whom she doesn’t want her ex (Steve Coogan) to have.

“What got me excited,” Skarsgard, 36, said last week from Los Angeles, “was there’s a sweetness I was drawn to.

“I love how he’s being stuck with this kid and falls in love with her. Lincoln’s someone who doesn’t take care of himself or anyone else, and Maisie takes care of Lincoln and he grows in the process.”

James’ turn-of-the-century tale was written “as a reaction to what was going on with capitalism and industrialization as people were becoming more focused on their careers and neglected their kids.”

“To set it in modern-day New York — it’s interesting how relevant the novel still feels. You see that so much today, where parents will let the PlayStation or television or computer raise their kids.”

Skarsgard has yet to become a father but “I love kids, I want to have kids,” he said.

“I come from a very big household and dad” — Stellan Skarsgard of “Good Will Hunting” — “has two young boys with his new wife. Growing up, my cousins lived in the same house and there were six of us, so that’s what I’m used to.”

As for the buzz that Skarsgard will be the next big screen Tarzan, “It’s a phenomenal character but obviously a big film and it’s going to take some time at Warner Brothers” before Edgar Rice Burroughs’ king of the jungle is actually given a green light, he said.

[From The Boston Herald]

Alex is 36 years old right now, he’ll turn 37 in August. If he wants kids, I would say he should start soon, although Hollywood men make their own rules about this sort of thing. But how cute would it be to see Alex with a little Viking baby in his arms? It would be better than Chris Hemsworth’s pap walks, I think. So, who wants to let Alex get them pregnant? Come on!

    my uterus is free, no waiting..

    from watching the way he interacts with children, he seems like he could be a good dad. (based purely on photo assumption)

    • aims says:

      I agree. I’m willing and able. And I get can get pregnant quickly. God, that would be an awesome baby making session! He does seem at ease with kids.

      *mind is now wondering to our baby making session.*

    • Lex says:

      I forgot to take my pill last night so I am one step closer to babyville!

  2. ncboudicca says:

    If only I was 10 years younger, I’d sacrifice myself to give Cumberbatch and Skarsgard babies. But only for the good of humanity, not because I’d enjoy it or anything.

  3. Samigirl says:

    I keep saying I don’t want any more but I’ll make an exception.

  4. Anna says:

    I was going to ignore this post till I saw the Hemsworth reference. Nobody beats Thor with baby India in his arms!

  5. A says:

    Well, there’s some eggs dropping over here for sure.

  6. Mirella says:

    I”m available! :)

  7. I’m only 20 and don’t really want kids before I’m about 30, but for him I’d make an exception!

  8. bammer says:

    Well what else did you expect him to say?

    • whatthehell456 says:

      Lol this! Do you really think he would admit to NOT wanting kids?! His publicist would kill him!!

  9. dcypher1 says:

    I wouldn’t mind having his Viking babies. They would be so gorg and Blondie.

  10. Faye says:

    I love him, but I always have to suppress an eye roll when Hollywood guys like Cumby and Skarsgard talk about their great desire to procreate. I can’t help thinking that it reeks ever-so-slightly of pandering to the female demographic. I mean, if they really wanted to find someone to settle down and have children with, they probably could, right? Talk about catering to the soccer-mom crowd. Just once, a wicked part of me wants one of these guys to say, “I’m a popular Hollywood star and I can get all kinds of hot totty now — I’m in no rush to settle down!” It would be funny.

    Also, I did have to roll my eyes at his analysis of the book. I don’t remember learning that it was some kind of indictment of capitalism, although I guess literary criticism varies. And I very strongly disbelieve that neglecting your children is associated with higher incomes – there are bad and good parents in every stratum. But I still love Skarsgard — especially in a suit!

    • Gina says:

      I roll my eyes at cumberlizard since he talks about it ALL THE TIME. But Alex is actually promoting a movie with a kid where he plays her stepdad, AND he has SEVEN siblings so it makes more sense.

      • Jaye says:

        This. Also he had such lovely interactions with the little girl who played Maisie that I kind of think he’s being mostly truthful.

    • Anna says:

      Hemsworth wanted to procreate and so he did. A man of action. Just how I like’em.

      • Gina says:

        Yeah because having a kid with a notorious gold digger is awesome, right? Who cares about finding the right person? Let’s ask kanye….

      • Anna says:

        I’m not saying he made a goooood choice… and now we get some DILF porn at least :) Plus hey, he was a man in love (in my mind). I like a committed type.

    • Dani says:

      In Cumberbatch’s defense he really tried. He was with the same woman for like 10-12 years. It’s not entirely his fault it didn’t work out.

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      Usually I would agree but he’s been going on about family and babies forever. I saw an old interview translated from Swedish a while ago where he said it. It was about 10 years old (or older even). In my experience, people who come from big families either want a whole football team of kids or none at all. :-)
      He needs to find someone soon, all his talk about being a dad makes me want to see him with a kid of his own.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Oh come on..maybe it is PR bullshit but you can’t fault a guy just because he doesn’t have kids. Maybe he just hasn’t found the right person yet?

      Better than rushing to have kids with someone you’re not in love with, which happens all to often.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:


      • Izzy says:

        Kitten, he hasn’t found the right one yet because he hasn’t yet found ME.

        Alex honey, my uterus awaits. Come on over and pillage…

      • Faye says:

        @TheOriginalKitten, I absolutely don’t fault him for not having kids (don’t think that was implied at all in my post). Not everybody wants or is cut out for parenthood, and I actually admire those who refrain from it rather than jumping into it and neglecting their kids.

        My issue was more of a general commentary on all of these celebs *saying* they want kids, when it seems to me to be a kind of pandering to female fans.

  11. OhHai says:

    Am I the only one who thinks he and Macaulay Culkin look a lot alike?

    • The Original Original says:

      Yes you are

    • Irishae says:

      Borrowing a line from Shirley MacLaine in Steel Magnolias: “You are evil and must be destroyed!”

      That association is soo not cool. :)

    • Monkeysam says:

      I’ll be the other side here and say you’re right. They actually have similar bone structure

  12. Jenna says:

    There was a time when I would’ve signed my uterus up for that…but now? *crosses legs* I hope you get want you want Skarsie! This shop only opens up for my hubby, Karl. :P

  13. els says:

    He is the oldest in a family of 8 kids or 7? I can’t understand why he would want kids anytime soon. In my experience the oldest brother gets to be some sort of parent for the rest of his brothers and sisters and parents always encourage older siblings to take care of the youngest.
    That’s a lot to carry.
    Of course he is promoting a movie and maybe he does want kids sometime, but he doesn’t strike me as someone that is desperate for that kind of responsability. Plus, he has horrible taste in the women department.
    But hey, promotion is promotion and the man has to do his job!

  14. Minx says:

    ” So, who wants to let Alex get them pregnant?”

    Um….*raises hand* The things I’d do for this man…

  15. DreamyK says:

    Ok, Alex. You’ve worn me down. I’ll have your love child but I insist on lots of practice first.

  16. CR says:

    Bio clock issues exist for men too in DNA in sperm degenerating as men age. Stellan Skaarsgard’s boys are probably stuck with this problem (even if it doesn’t manifest as an actual problem, such as autism, childhood cancer, etc) in the first DNA-damaged children, the DNA is permanently damaged and it can cause problems in later generations.

    I would not have kids with Alexander, even though he is super hot, because I think he would probably dump his share of the work on me, the mother, which is unhealthy for the kids. Also, he’ll probably be like his father and leave to start another family late in life.

    • A says:

      This is just a horrible comment based on absolutely no facts at all.

    • Ashling says:

      Stellan’s first wife had decade long problems with alcoholism and they stayed together until she was sober. The kids love both parents, My and Stellan are still friends, so why begrudge the second marriage?

    • Gina says:

      Wow this comment is super gross.

      • cr says:

        It is, and it’s done by someone with a commenting name similar to mine, which makes it worse.
        While there is a biological clock for men as well, the rest of the comment was a bit off, even for a gossip site.

      • Tulip says:

        We don’t know the details and personalities of either of the Skarsgarrds personal life. So that should be left alone. CRs comment does bring about some good questions, though. Do actors who gush about wanting to be a dad, actually plan on having their careers derailed for children? Will they take up a job with a steadier paycheque, or no? And I know of men who raised their first kids with their first wife, snapped, got divorced, and got to actually parenthood a lot more by remarrying and having another kid with a much younger woman. Which is fine, sure. But it pisses me off, because I won’t have the same option. I’ll just get to be the miserable first wife who gets to raise the kids and my husband, while the second wife gets it much easier. (blood boils)

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      Ahahahahaaa! … You’re trolling, right? *shakes head*

  18. mabooski says:

    *katniss voice* I VOLUNTEER!!!

  19. Ashling says:

    I wish he would have kids…soon. I love to see him with kids. My dad was the oldest of 7 and he was the best dad. He’d had a lot of practice growing up.

  20. babybarbie says:

    i am agree with CB

  21. Manylolz says:

  22. Maria_Spain says:

    IM HERE!!!! IM HERE!!!! PICK ME!!!! :D
    so handsome and cute and sweeet!!!!

  23. Darkladi says:

    I will take one (or 20) for the team – he can practice on me til all of the mamas are ready for him.

  24. Lexi says:

    Oh my God, he can soooo get me pregnant!!! He is sooooo hot and sexy

  25. Kayla says:

    If it makes you feel better about not having a chance with him, guys that hot are never good in bed.He probably just lies there and expects you to do all the work.And they never want to go down on you or are good at it.I bet our fantasies are hotter and more erotic than anything he’d do in real life.

    • Lena says:

      The stories I’ve heard from my friend in Sweden would prove you wrong…

    • Ramones says:

      According a norwegian source he is great in bed and a total sweatheart.

    • Irishae says:

      This made me laugh because that has proved true in my experience. The men who are best in bed are not the one’s you’d expect. But it can’t be so about Alex. Right? Right? RIGHT?!

  26. Manylolz says:

    Lena and ramones, please do say …we need more details ! :p

  27. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    <3. Sigh :) .

  28. Simply Red says:

    You guys made me laugh while reading the comments

  29. Mourning the Death of Music says:

    I just felt my ovaries throb.

  30. Amy says:

    Just thought of something–maybe he could get with Tiger Wood’s ex Elin? They are both Swedish, both blond, both very good looking.

    Actually the only reason I want them together is because they are both Swedish! I just think it would be nice for Elin to date a fellow countrymen. :D

  31. Chrissy says:

    That first photo with the too-tight sweater. Come to the future mother of your children!!!
