Alex Skarsgard & Alexa Chung broke up, now he’s being set up on blind dates


The last time I checked, Alexa Chung and Alex Skarsgard were together. But the last time I checked was March of this year, when they stepped out for what looked like a grumpy pap stroll. They were also photographed together in May, also looking grumpy. Then Alex was in Paris for the French Open, and then he went on holiday in Capri in June. The European vacation did not include Alexa. And as it turns out, they probably broke up around that time. Page Six claims that Alexa and Alex have been over for a bit, and he’s moving on by letting his friends set him up on blind dates with models. Sure.

It looks like “Big Little Lies” actor Alexander Skarsgard and Brit model Alexa Chung have split. Sources tell us Skarsgard, who started dating Chung in 2015, was set up on a blind date with model Toni Garrn in Montauk this past weekend.

“This was the first time they met,” says the source. “It was a blind date set up by a mutual friend. Toni was nervous, so she brought two girlfriends. They had lunch at his house and then all hit Gurney’s.”

This unusual setup didn’t seem to go over too well.

“They didn’t hit it off big-time,” says the insider. “There may not be a second date in the cards.”

Skarsgard and Chung were last spotted together in May.

Garrn formerly dated Leonardo DiCaprio. Garrn’s rep tells us “not true,” but then admitted she didn’t know whether Garrn had been with Skarsgard.

What would you do if your friends set you up on a blind date with Alexander Skarsgard? Doesn’t that just sound like the most bizarre moment? But of course, I would try to make it work, because he’s Alexander Skarsgard, a legit Viking. WTF was Toni Garrn thinking?? She could make it work with Leonardo DiCaprio for more than a year but she’s not going to have a second date with Alex Skarsgard?!?!? Girl, you have a bad picker.

Here’s a photo of Alex in Tribeca a few days ago:

    Eh, I’d rather date Alexa. She seems to be so fun and down to Earth.
    He’s nice enough but not my cup of tea.

    I’d hate it if someone set me up with someone famous.

      >I’d hate it if someone set me up with someone famous.

      I wouldn’t mind as long as he wasn’t blonde lol

  2. PIa says:

    I vaguely remember an article from Lainey that said that he and Ben Barnes were both after Alicia Vikander before she blew up?

    • jjj says:

      Yep, there are linkes to the articles where Alicia was mentioned in the 2nd paragraph here. That was years ago, before Lainey even knew who she was

    • cr says:

      Alicia has been a long time Skarsgard family friend, I think Lainey got the hots for her at Comic-Con 2011, but I doubt that Alex ever dated her or wanted to to date her.
      As for Alex/a, they were last seen right after the Met Gala, and he didn’t even go to London to support her when her fashion line launched, so they probably broke up in May.
      As for the Garn story, eh, it’s Page 6. Alex likes the fashionista/model type, but he does date age-appropriately, so I side-eye the reliability of the story.

      • Longie says:

        Alicia starred with one of Alex’s bothers in a Swedish tv production back in the day. They used to hang out a lot as friends, she was seen on Alex’s every red carpet before she became known in order to get exposure. He was more known than her back then, I think because of ‘true blood’? There was also a rumour that he finds her quite annoying, so pretty sure they didn’t date.

      • Andrea says:

        I wonder why he finds her annoying??

  3. Stumpycorgi says:

    Where are his eyebrows?

    • l says:

      Alexa got custody. He kept the decorative hipster LPs though…

    • doofus says:

      OK, I legit laughed at both of these comments, but…

      …light colored and/or blond eyebrows don’t show up in pics and are hard to see in general…it’s why I color mine in every morning. 😉

      • LM says:

        Try getting them dyed once a month. It was one of the best beauty tricks I’ve ever done. To quote my tween daughter, “It legit changed my liiiiiife!”.

      • doofus says:

        oh, interesting…thanks for the tip! I wonder if there’s a home-dye kit for brows?

      • magnoliarose says:

        I do the same because I am light blonde and they look weird if I get sun. I do it with my eyebrows and eyelashes. It saves time when you are simply having a casual day.

      • Ariana says:

        yes, there are dye at home kits, but BEWARE!! a second can make a terrible difference!! that being said, I go to the hair dresser (since I waited that terrible second too long and had that terrible difference in my face for a month) and it’s still the most terrifying moment of every month

    • milla says:

      Same place as mine. Above eyes.

  5. SydneyGirl says:

    Alexa SEEMS like a fun, down to earth but in reality is probably the ultimate cool girl like Amy in Gone Girl – witty, fun, lives what you love then slowly fucks you over.

    His radar is broken.

    Let’s see if Alex can choose better next time round.

  6. t.fanty says:

    Alex is really losing the hot with age.

    • chaine says:

      His character in Big Little Lies didn’t help… now every time i see him I think of creepy wife-beater Perry lying on the floor screaming about his broken urethra…

    • Silver Unicorn says:

      He never had it on my opinion… I don’t know why. I can see he’s handsome but that’s it.
      I would still run after his father though lol
      Call me crazy 😀

      • kay says:

        can we do a relay then? lol.
        you are not crazy. i hear you loud and clear on that one.

      • notasugarhere says:

        I’m with you about his father, way back to his annoying character in the sailing movie Wind.

    • Adrien says:

      I find him very goofy looking. It has something to do with his resemblance to Jim Carrey. It is the reason why he totally creeped me out in BLL. His looks wasn’t the stereotypical meanie husband.

    • Tata says:

      The camera must love him because he is so meh in person. His head (brain head!) looks teeny in comparison to the rest of his body.

  7. grabbyhands says:

    I volunteer as tribute!!! :::waves hands wildly::::

  8. detritus says:

    Ahem Ahem. Garnn is probably not intellectual enough. This totally 100% must be it. *Sips fancy loose leaf tea and opens a hefty textbook* why hello Alex, yes, I am University educated and available (do not tell my partner). *switches textbook from upsidedown to right side up*

  9. milla says:

    I liked them together. Dunno why… Oh well…

    • lucy2 says:

      I kind of did too. I was crazy jealous of her of course, but she seems like a funny and interesting person.
      I cannot imagine being set up with him, I’d lose my mind.

  10. JA says:

    Not sure if it’s just aging but Alicia looks so different. Also less tan and not as thin as she is now. I figured the tan was from a bottle but she referenced it an interview how she was naturally tan so that clears that up…

  11. Fanny says:

    I like Alex, but there is something suspect about his dating life. The Alexa relationship seemed sporadic, like they both led very separate lives and every so often met up. I don’t know if he’s really relationship material – he seems like a lone wolf and kind of cold when it comes to relationships.

    • Wilma says:

      Yes, in interviews he seems to be saying everything you like to hear as a woman and he seems feminist, but then his actual life seems to contradict that.

    • Aims says:

      He’s a Virgo , we’re independent by nature . We’re not the one’s who appreciate someone breathing down our necks 24/7. I know I might sound looney but I think there’s some truth to it . Speaking for myself , I’m not clingy and I wouldn’t have someone who was.

      • kay says:

        fellow virgo here, decan 1…and i reckon you just might be right about that.

      • Andrea says:

        Maybe I need to find a Virgo then (never dated one). I am an only child Pisces who has had so many issues dating cling on men. They do not respect or value my space whatsoever and want us to be together 24/7.

  12. Minx says:

    He is just delicious and such a lovely person. 😍🤤❤️ So glad he got some Emmy love for his Big Little Lies performance! He was phenomenal and terrifying as Perry Wright. About damn time he was recognized for his talent. The man has some mad skills.

  13. Hannah says:

    I have lived in Scandinavia so I don’t find him that excotic or especially attractive and his choice in women is so off putting. He’s always dating some uberskinny model or actress. People give Chris pine and Chris Evans shit for being shallow with women but Alex is just as bad,

    • Fanny says:

      Don’t most actors generally date other actors or models? That’s who he meets.

      I don’t think it’s noteworthy unless it’s Leonardo DiCaprio who dates only a very specific type of model and no one else.

  14. lana86 says:

    hmm…”bad picker” ?? She s not the one who picks lol

  15. MI6 says:

    Who the hell brings their gf’s on a date?? What are we, 12?
    Sounds to me like he dodged a bullet.

  16. Camille says:

    Aww bummer, I liked them together.

  17. Lilli says:

    Toni Garrn is from Hamburg, so she probably is a “legit” Viking, too. Takes the exoticism out of it (not that a think that Leo was the more attractive choice).
    I would definitely say yes to a date with Alexander – so I could make him talk about his dad. He’s cute and all, but Stellan Skarsgard is a whole other league. Such a talented actor, great brains and a wicked sense of humour.

  18. Myra says:

    Known Alex since high school. He always has liked to be the smartest one in the relationships. Hence the young models.

    • cr says:

      Funny, because he’s dated age appropriately, so if he dated ‘young models’ it was when he was younger. And while I don’t consider Alexa to be old at 33, neither is she young in terms of the fashion world.

      • Myra says:

        Sorry I did not mean he always dates young models. I meant he always dates “ditzy” and superficial girls, ALWAYS and now at his age and career, easier to get that ditzy girl in young model. His girlfriend in high school and after military were the same ditzy type

    • Rae says:


      Alexa seems like she’s got a decent head on her shoulders, Kate Bosworth was accepted into Princeton, etc.

      Perhaps he just grew up from the time you remember?

  19. raincoaster says:

    Oh my god. That appears to be REAL leopard. I honestly don’t know what kind of moron would wear that nowadays. Especially since it’s July. But seriously, real leopard? You know they don’t farm it.

  20. Rae says:

    Hell yeah, sign me up!

    I’ll always have a thing for this Viking.

  21. Daisy says:

    Just watched Tarzan, then Binge watched Big Little Lies not realizing he was in that, too, what’s up next for this guy? I like watching him on screen. He’s versatile and easy on the eyes.
