Alexander Skarsgard looks great at the Berlinale: would you hit it?


This feels like an old-school Hot Guy Friday moment! Alexander Skarsgard is in Berlin right now. He’s promoting his new film War on Everyone with Michael Pena at the Berlinale. It feels like it’s been a while since we’ve seen Skarsgard, but I’m just now realizing that I completely missed covering photos of him at the DGAs last weekend. He has been out and about the past few months, but I guess I just wasn’t paying attention.

War on Everyone is apparently about the drug war in America, and Alex plays a corrupt cop in New Mexico. The film is supposed to come out this year but it doesn’t have a release date yet. My guess is that this film will make the film festival rounds throughout the year, and maybe we’ll see Alex at Cannes and TIFF.

But the big moment of “Is Alexander Skarsgard a movie star?” comes this July, with the release of The Legend of Tarzan, the much-discussed reboot of the Tarzan story. IMDB says that Warner Bros has easily spent $180 million on Tarzan already, and we haven’t even gotten to the promotional costs. I suspect that’s why Alex has been attending more events recently – it never hurts to get some advanced free press for a film that could end his career if it bombs.

Apparently, Alex is still with Alexa Chung too. There was some talk that they had done the meet-the-families thing and that an engagement was in the works. If I was Alex’s publicist, I would tell him to announce the engagement about a month before Tarzan comes out.

    They are so rich. Can they not do anything about the bag under their eyes ? Is there hope then for us mere mortals??

    • Linday says:

      I’m sure there’s something you can do for eye bags, but he’s had them since he was a child and doesn’t seem to care so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    • Nameless says:

      I think his bags are sexy. I like a natural face. I was looking at pictures of Joan Fontaine when she was in her 40s and she was so beautiful. Today she would have that strange stretched and puffy look of surgery and fillers. Wrinkles and bags > waxy botox skin, but just my opinion.

      • Gina says:

        Funny, was just coming here to say he definitely has been tweaked about the eyelids or it’s a mini brow lift. He looked older on True Blood 7 years ago. Lol

  2. IrishEyes says:

    Every day and twice on Sundays. I’d hit it until it broke!

  3. gatinha says:

    Lol @ his over the shoulder pose!

  4. Linday says:

    Finally more Alex and less of the annoying British dudes!! War on Everyone is a black comedy, not really about the war on drugs or anything like that.

    You should post those pics of him making out hardcore with Nicole Kidmanon the Big Little Lies set.

  5. Beckers says:

    @ Cornyblue doesn’t everyone complain when they don’t age without plastic surgery. Maybe he just chooses to go it the natural way?!

    • LAK says:

      Having a famous father means that we have toddler pics of Alex, and those eyebags were present even then.

      If anything, the eyebags aren’t as prominent in adulthood as they were in childhood.

  6. Kaye says:

    Shout outs to the first Celebitchy poster, wherever she may be, who said, “I’d hit it so hard I’d be speaking Swedish afterwards.”

  7. lucy2 says:

    Yes please.
    That last pose is hilarious.

  8. vauvert says:

    Not getting the appeal at all. Small beady eyes, squashed potatoes nose and half his face is forehead. Still plan on watching Tarzan (loved the books as a kid) but despite him, rather than because of.

    • FingerBinger says:

      Tall blonde and Swedish is the appeal. I don’t get it either but that’s what it is.

    • Kaye says:

      Vauvert, I agree – in still pictures he is not attractive at all. But if you see him move or hear him speak, the attraction becomes much more apparent.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      Yeah, me neither. His height is the only thing he has going for him. Personally, I feel like Alexa is out of his league, if we’re going just by looks. Both of his brothers are much better looking. Especially Bill.
      I saw the trailer for Tarzan nd it looks awful.

      • Grant says:

        Alexa is so bland and basic in my opinion–but that’s Alexander’s type, it seems. I second the person who said that you have to see him in movement to understand the appeal. He was the best part about True Blood, especially in the later seasons.

      • Nameless says:

        Bill looks like a Boston terrier. Team Alex.

      • Locke Lamora says:

        I think Alexa is stunning. And she has a great personality, she’s very witty and sarcastic.
        I did see him in motion. Still nothing.

    • Mgsota says:


    • CoraNels says:

      The appeal? How about the fact that he’s beautiful and talented and charming and kind?

      • Minx says:

        ^All of this! Add on top of it that he’s a lovely person inside and out makes him even hotter.

        Cannot wait to see Tarzan. Loved the trailer!

    • elle says:

      Me, either.

  9. littlemissnaughty says:

    I keep forgetting that I adore him but then he busts out a pose like the over-the-shoulder-one and I remember. Bless him, seriously. The Funny Or Die vids he did with Jack McBrayer are the cutest thing ever.

    He really should announce an engagement during the Tarzan promo stuff but I doubt it. That’s not his style to announce anything at all.

    • lucy2 says:

      I loved the videos with Jack! They have a cute friendship.
      I don’t see him announcing anything either, I don’t know that either of them has spoken publicly about their relationship at all.

  10. Bluebird says:

    I miss Hot Guy Friday!!

  11. PunkyMomma says:

    I’d hit him like the proverbial piñata.

  12. Syko says:

    No, thank you. All you other ladies have at it. :)

  13. Jayna says:

    He looks sexy.

    No, George Clooney, that’s how you wear jeans and a casual shirt.

  14. Sarah01 says:

    He’s so hot and has a sense of humour – why not!

  15. Lilacflowers says:

    The wind chill here is negative 12 or something. I would hit that so hard, volcanos would erupt across New England. I believe it is my civic duty. Or something. Erik Northman forever.

  16. Mimz says:

    I’m gonna let the bitch out and the Kanye in and say


    Lol nothing against him, he’s just not my cup of tea. He’s too vanilla and I like hot spicy tea :)

  17. frantasticstar says:

    BRING BACK Hot Guy Friday !!!

  18. Mila says:

    Whenever i see him i think “god he looks like my father”, same look,blond,tall, green eyes and forever young.

  19. AlmondJoy says:

    Poor guy looks like he hasn’t slept in weeks! He hoesn’t have that POW that makes me attracted to him but he’s handsome for sure 😍

  20. grabbyhands says:

    He would have to either say something really dickish and stupid or be covered in bugs for me to not want to hit it.

  21. Dani8 says:

    He has such kindness in his eyes. You can’t fake that. I hope he truly is a nice guy. I don’t want my illusion shattered.

    • lucy2 says:

      I’ve seen a lot of lovely comments from his previous coworkers. I think he’s a good guy.

      • Minx says:

        You’re right. The comments from fans who’ve met him are even better. He’s a total sweetheart who goes out of his way for fans. I don’t think I’ve ever read of a bad encounter. He’s a keeper.

  22. Jasmine Warfield says:

    Is the over the shoulder pose a homage to Zoolander? I just remembered he played a male model in the first one.

  23. my3cents says:

    Yes.yes. Yes.
    With a side of Swedish meatballs! (sorry couldn’t resist).
    Please keep posting Alex news…

  24. dana says:

    I def think he’s a cutie but I’d say bad move on Tarzan. Its like ice down the back on the hot factor. Ewww no sorry. I don’t think hes a great actor, but he looks damn good.

  25. Jezza says:

    I’d climb him like a tree! Yummy yum yum yum yum!!

  26. Sugarcube says:

    He’s just the most gorgeous and talented actor in Hollywood. Tarzan is going to be a big hit as he’s such a good actor. He wouldn’t have done the film for it to be a flop.

    No way will he marry Chung he’s way too good for her. They didn’t even spend Christmas together how serious does it make their union. I think she’s most ugly of all his girl friends. He doesn’t even acknowledge her or want to be seen with her. I don’t blame him either as she’s such a famewhore.
