Evan Rachel Wood and True Blood heartthrob Alex Skarsgard quietly dating

Evan Rachel Wood
Lainey over at Lainey’s Gossip is reporting that hot Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgard, 33, who plays the conniving viking vampire Eric on “True Blood,” is dating his new costar, Evan Rachel Wood, 22. Evan and Alex have reported taken pains to keep their new relationship under wraps. Evan made her debut on True Blood as Lousiana’s vampire queen Sophie-Anne in last week’s episode. The final much-anticipated episode in the second season will air on HBO this Sunday. In an interview with E! Online ahead of her debut, Evan said that she was “Team Alex” in the epic battle for lead Sookie Stackhouse’s affections between vampire Bill and vampire Eric. She quickly corrected herself, saying she was team “Eric, whoops.” I guess she’s team Alex in more ways than one:

Evan Rachel Wood and Alexander Skarsgard are dating.

Am told exclusively by an infallible source that it’s been several weeks now. And that she flew to Shreveport, Louisiana on Friday to visit him. Skarsgard is there working on Straw Dogs with Kate Bosworth. Smart Evan. Kate has a way of throwing herself inappropriately at other people’s boyfriends. See Jim Sturgess.

As for Evan and Alex – they met, of course, on the set of True Blood, and were able to keep it low key, very underground while they were in LA, never venturing out to pap friendly locations, only sighted a few times discreetly, and so far the relationship is progressing well, they’re having fun together.

What happened with Shane West?

Came and went. Two individuals going in different directions. Shane is idling. This is not attractive in the end. Believe me I know. I’ve dated my share of losers.

And Alexander Skarsgard is not a loser.

Oh ladies. Don’t hate. And stop with The Swears. Let the Twi-Hards own the market on the crazy. True Blood fans are much more sane?

[From Lainey Gossip]

I’ve watched a few interviews with Alex Sarsgård since developing my new-found crush on him, and I’ve been impressed with how smart, down-to-earth, and humble he seems. He’s done several long interviews with fan sites in which he seemed genuinely pleased to answer in depth questions about his character.

Kaiser sent me this article and I kind of shrugged and thought “oh well.” I don’t have anything particularly against Wood, and although she stupidly dated Marilyn Manson and then went back to him after they broke up the first time, I was willing to give her the benefit of the doubt. Kaiser schooled me that Wood is “as conceited and self-absorbed as Megan Fox,” but “actually kind of smart.” I dug up a couple of Wood’s recent interviews to see, and Kaiser is right –Wood is pretty far up her own ass. Her voice sounds like Lindsay Lohan’s too. At least Lohan didn’t get her clutches on Skarsgard. You know she would love to.

Alexander Skarsgard is shown at Comic-Con on 7/25/09. Evan Rachel Wood is shown on 6/25/09. Credit: PRPhotos.

    Is she trying to dress like the joker?

  2. LuLu says:

    If it’s true, Alex is a HUGE GIGANTIC step up from her former boyfriend.

  3. mila says:

    If it’s true then I truly hate her:) He’s miiiiine!!!!!!He or his father, Stellan, I don’t care.

  4. meow says:

    She sets off my skankdar and I couldn’t figure out why until someone posted these pics on the HBO site.




    Look where his foot is in the last pic.

    Alex is going where many have been including Marilyn Manson, Shane West and his foot! I know many people are upset about this, but maybe they are a good fit for each other.

  5. lena says:

    i believe this is why she went out of her way to get on show…calling allan ball and stuff….can’t say i blame the girl

  6. lucy says:

    I’m a little bummed, he could do better. But even if it’s true (which neither has confirmed and so far the only pics are of them *gasp!* walking around together) I wouldn’t expect it to last too long.

  7. Eileen Yover says:

    Meh-he’s probably just playing and she’s a great one to do that with.

  8. anna says:

    I can’t stop crying. And I’m 35 years old.

  9. mollyb says:

    Ugh. I remember one interview with her in her Marilyn Manson days where she talked about filming a music video with him and how they were making out in a rainstorm of blood and how “romantic” it was. It was such the sort of thing that a teenage girl would say like “Look how edgy I am! I think blood is romantic! I don’t ‘conform’ to your suburban romance standards! Please, someone be shocked by me!”

  10. Diana says:

    Good for Shane West.
    Finally free from this…b…girl.

    Shane deserves so much better than her!

  11. Jenna says:


    You get a humble man and a woman whose face looks like Ashlee Simpson before and after surgery. I don’t exactly see this lasting long but if Alex is happy with her then I guess yay team. I’m less than thrilled to watch the finale now.

  12. Jess says:


  13. Firestarter says:

    Well she has now tainted Skarsgard for life. I mean what man would want to be with ehr after she was the plaything of Marilyn Manson for years! Talk about a walking petrie dish! Yikes!

  14. gblinda says:

    yuck, she is TERRIBLE as sophie ann on the show. Ugh…she was a dolt when she was with manson and wasn’t she a part of that breakup? and she was only like 19 or 20 then? Girl’s got issues. He can do SOOOO much better.

  15. Rose says:

    ‘..a walking petri dish.’
    You know, this talking about women as if they are contaminated sluts purely because they have the audacity to have a sex life is getting really really old.
    I’m surprised at the amount of woman bashing on this site and getting pretty tired of it. Alex could have banged half of Europe for all we know. Or maybe he’s just mature enough to like someone for who they are as a person, not who they may or may not have slept with.

  16. meow says:

    Alex seems a bit slimy, he may have his own funk. They will combine their funk and it will grow wild in her petri dish.

    Having sex does not make you a slut. Skanky behavior (see above pics) makes others view you in a negative way.I could care less who he or she dates, but she is a nasty girl. From the above pictures she is enjoying her boyfriends dirty shoe near her coochie/petri dish. If she would allow a dirty shoe near her love cave what else has she allowed to funk it up. A coochie needs love and care to stay healthy. A coochie can take many chorizos and still be healthy, but the above pic shows her lack of love and care for her coochie. A woman must remember to love and care for her coochie, no one else will.

  17. Firestarter says:

    Rose- Excuse me, but I don’t care that she has a sex life, but it is known that Marilyn Manson has had bouts with STD’s, so it is not beyond the realm of possibility that she may have contracted something from him. I question her choice of partners, having been with Manson. I have said the same thing about Dita Von Teese, and Rose McGowan. Manson is a scum!

    Sorry if having read a few interviews with him and his openess about having had STD’s a time or two offends your delicate sensibilities. Any woman who has been with him gets called a petrie dish. Lighten up, no one was insulting any woman having a healthy sex life, I was insulting Evan’s CHOICE of previous long term boyfriend.

    If Vampire Eric had slept with Manson, I would have called him a walking petrie dish.

  18. Texas Gal says:

    You know, in that interview where she says she’s “team alex” I definately thought she was going out of her way to let it be known she was into Alexander.

    I found her annoying before but if this rumor is true Im going to 100%, in & out, up & down, hate her! Physically, I thought she could play Sophie Ann but then her ridiculous acting proved me wrong.

    Best. Post. EVER!!!

  20. Ling says:

    I don’t like them as a couple. I want Anna Paquin and Alexander Skarsgard together in real life.

    And I want Sam Trammel and Rutina Wesley together more than anything on this planet.

    Evan Rachel Wood was not impressive as Sophie-Anne. It was all a little too “Look at me saying these risqué lines, how edgy is that?” It wasn’t genuine at all.

  21. dr_bambi says:

    Hey Rose,
    I completely agree with you- it’s beyond tiresome to read the amount of bile directed at women regarding their sexuality.

    People f%^k- and STDs exist, get over it. Having one isn’t a reflection on one’s caliber as a person.

  22. meow says:

    Dr Bambi-

    F*c9king and STD’s do not have to go together, except maybe in your world. It is possible to be sexually active without catching a disease. Although sometimes even the most careful of people can catch an STD. Herpes for example, can still be caught while using a condom. It should not be a reflecion of morality, but in people like Paris Hilton and Evan Rachael Wood, it is. What is horrible is that most people do not know the basics of sexual health. My mother is a labor/delivery nurse, I recieved a plethora of information on std’s and sexual heath. Most was TMI since it was coming from my mother. STD’s are not funny and they are spread because people do not talk to their partners about their funk, they just keep spreading the funk. Most can be treated, unlike herpes which stays with you forever. I do not think most of the women are demonized because of possible std’s, but rather their skanky behavior. In my first post above Evan is getting her love spot massaged (live on stage at her boyfriend’s concert) by his dirty shoe. She is NASTY!

    The bile is not just directed at women- Gerard Butler is often referred to as a manwhore.

  23. Firestarter says:

    WTF???? Seriously, I was not commenting on her sexuality, I was commenting on her choice of men, specifically Marilyn Manson, who is a vile, filthy, sick human being.

    Last I knew, people could post whatever they wanted on this site, within reason. People need to get over themselves.

    walking petrie dish, walking petrie dish, walking petrie dish, walking petrie dish.

    Thought it should be repeated since that comment seemed to have really gotten under people’s skin.

    The way you act about a bloody comment, you would think it was made about you and not some stranger in Hollywood.

  24. Rose says:

    Firestarter, you sound like a bratty teenager. Put a sock in it.

    And Meow, I would wager you know very little about ERV’s sexual health one way or another, you are attempting to slut shame her because of a photo. Seriously, that’s pretty pathetic.

  25. Firestarter says:

    Rose, perhaps you should take some of your own advice and put a sock in it.

    Thanks for playing, have a super swell day.

  26. Ophelia says:

    Noooooo!!!!! 🙁 I like thinking of him as single. Or at least not dating someone who had sex with Marilyn Manson. Ugh I’m a hypocrit though, cos I love Dita.

  27. meow says:


    What should one infer from the above pictures? The pictures are clear without the need to slut shame her. She is getting “shoed” live on stage, by her boyfriend. As to her coochie, I can only surmise that it has more than likely grown quite a few extraordinary microorganisims, since she likes her activities with shoe funk.

  28. bellyache says:

    LMAO @ meow

    HAHAHAH. That is some serious funny sh-t. You sound like a mellowed out Michael K, which is just fine by me.

    Hahaha. I’m still laughin.

  29. H says:

    What’s really gross is that floor she was laying on, it looked nasty.

  30. Rose says:

    Meow, you can infer a girl is having a laugh with her boyfriend and that his foot is near her ‘coochie’ that’s about all anyone can infer from those shots. Not that she is a slut or riddled with STDs.

  31. browning says:

    i am completely jealous. i knew i didnt like her for a reason.

  32. I choose me says:

    Guess it’s just me that he does nothing for. He has a gorgeous bod and everything and I actually like his personality on True Blood and based on his interviews he seems like a nice guy but when I look at him, nothing, zip, zilch. Eh, De gustibus non est disputandum – In matters of taste there is (should be) no dispute.

  33. Fran says:

    All I have to say is that I would love to be with Alex but realistically that is never going to happen =(

    I’m really jealous of that annoying little girl if she is really with him.

    Actually I’m really jealous even if she is not because she gets to be around him and has a chance to have him.

  34. Nicole says:

    I’ve always been on fan of Wood’s (Thirteen, Pretty Persuasions…), but I wasn’t all that impressed with her spot on True Blood. I don’t know much about her personally, but kudos to her for landing him (if it’s true).
    Team Eric!!!!
