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??

  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?!

  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.

  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.

  10. PunkyMomma says:

    I’d hit him like the proverbial piñata.

  11. Syko says:

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

  12. Jayna says:

    He looks sexy.

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

  13. Sarah01 says:

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

  14. 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.

  15. 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 :)

  16. frantasticstar says:

    BRING BACK Hot Guy Friday !!!

  17. Mila says:

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

  18. 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 😍

  19. 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.

  20. 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.

  21. 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.

  22. my3cents says:

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

  23. 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.

  24. Jezza says:

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

  25. 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.
