Alex Skarsgard in altercation with police at Coachella


Alex Skarsgard is still with that bitch Kate Bosworth. They were at Coachella over the weekend, and Kate made sure they were photographed the whole time. You know what pisses me off? Many of the photo agencies are describing Alex as “the actor boyfriend of Kate Bosworth”. Like he isn’t known for anything else – like they couldn’t say “True Blood hunk” or “famous sexy Swede”. Anyway, shock of all shocks, the paparazzi were taking lots of photos of Kate and Alex, and at one point Alex got into some kind of altercation with a photographer. Alex had to be “restrained” by a police officer, and of course other paps got the photos. They even got a photo of Alex’s clenched fist, and of him making a really dumb face (I have no idea what he’s doing there, but it’s not very attractive). In the end, no one was arrested. Here’s more:



True Blood star Alexander Skarsgaard was restrained by police during Saturday’s Coachella Music Festival, in Indio, Calif., according to a report.

Pacific Coast News reports the 33-year-old actor was photographed being held back by a police officer, fists clenched, after he became angered by a paparazzo taking shots of Skarsgard and rumored girlfriend Kate Bosworth.

Skarsgard was calmed down by the officer before the situation escalated and no arrests were reported.

Earlier in the evening, Skarsgard was spotted giving Bosworth, 27, clad in a blue tie-dye print halter dress, a ride on his shoulders.

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival concludes Sunday.

Alex is known as an extremely easy-going guy, so I have no idea what happened. I have two guesses, and they are not mutually exclusive: one, Alex might have been drunk or stoned, and that’s why he wasn’t his normal easy-going self, or two, the paparazzi were truly annoying him, in which case Alex should talk to his girlfriend, who has always been one of the B-list celebrities who are rumored to call the paps on themselves. I mean, it wasn’t Kate Bosworth who was looking annoyed. She’s probably going to get some auditions from this incident, and being seen with Alex.

Ugh. Alex really needs to dump her.

    I so agree with you! This is just plain dumb and because he has always been so relaxed and laid back I blame her. Also I hope he’s just drunk, not on anything else. One thing is, that he’s banging her (booo!), it’s an entirely different thing if he’s picking up her bad habits.

  2. bellaluna says:

    Kate who?

    I don’t need a picture to know who Alex Skarsgard is, but I always appreciate one. ;)

  3. LolaBella says:

    I saw some other pictures of this where Kate is standing near Alex as he is being restrained by the cop and the SMUG look that she had on her face spoke volumes.

    She’s using him because he’s red-hot right now and her status goes up by being associated with him, hence the ‘convenient photo ops’ (she arranged this with the paps) at Coachella.

    He is using her because she is the more famous of the two of them here in the US – a market that he wants to break into in a big way.

    It’s a symbiotic relationship, really.

    Sad that Alex has gone Hollywood.

  4. Crash2GO2 says:

    He looks drunk. Being stoned usually makes you more passive, doesn’t it?

  5. Jazz says:

    Ugh, that skinny bag o’ bones is dragging him down.

  6. e says:

    I don’t like Kate and I think Alexander is pretty gross too.

  7. Jess says:

    He does look dumb in the pictures but I’d still allow the police to use my body to restrain him anytime.

  8. Roma says:

    @e: We cannot be friends if you would dare to describe Alex as “gross”.

  9. JulieNewmar says:

    The booze made him do it.

  10. Anti-icon says:

    I don’t know either of these two, except Kate supposedly banging Goopy’s husband last year…..but I hate the cops in general, so I’m glad no one got busted. It’s just a music festival, dude. LOL

  11. violet says:

    god he’s so freakin hot. and though i’m really not a KB fan they do look happy and affectionate with each other.

  12. Pooky says:

    My first thought when reading the comments was “saucer of milk for table 2″, but wracking my brains, I honestly couldn’t name a single Kate Bosworth film other than the uber-flop that was Superman Returns. Why is this girl famous?

  13. lucy2 says:

    Probably a drunk/annoyed combo.
    She does seem like a user, he’s on an upswing and she’s perpetually B-/C+ list.

  14. me says:

    Please… I don’t really believe these two are a couple.It seems odd. She’s too much of an attention grabber, I find it hard to believe she wouldn’t be shouting from the rooftops if they were dating..please

  15. Kolby says:

    Is she kissing his fingers while he sips his beer in that one photo? Oooooh, how romantic!

  16. Pont Neuf says:

    She may be a user, but she has to look at his wrinkly face, blotchy skin, infected-looking eyes and HUGE, parsnip-shaped nose every time they are making love. Only for that, she deserves all the publicity in the world.

    Seriously, am I blind? Because I don’t see the attractive anywhere in this guy.

  17. Icecat says:

    @Pont Neuf

    Then you have not seen True Blood.

  18. SweB says:

    @ Pooky

    She was also in Blue Crush. She played the part of a lesbian surfer or something like that. The only thing I remember of the movie really is that she was superfit in it and really muscular. These days not so much… Really why is she famous and why is Alexander dating this bag of bones for?

  19. Sudini says:

    Woofdie! It’s just rediculous how hot he is, lol.

  20. Sudini says:

    @Pont Neuf – ya, I agree with Icecat. You really need to see him in True Blood to get the full effect. It’s pretty amazing how smoldering he is as that character.

  21. Strawberry says:

    Kaiser – I vote for drunk. He looks wasted in these.

  22. buckley says:

    The man is beyond hot. But why all the Kate hate. I think she’s kinda beautiful, if too skinny and a mediocre actor. But I don’t see the desperation everyone else seems to see in her.

  23. Jez says:

    Buckley – She has history. Bad history. I don’t hold that against her because people can change however she has continued to be bad news.

  24. Macheath says:

    @ Pont neuf
    I don’t see the attraction either. He’s just so…blah. Maybe it’s because we’re Brits =P

  25. dread pirate cuervo says:

    I think my mom used to use that crocheted dress to hang spider plants from the curtain rod back in the early 80′s. Also, she has no ass & shouldn’t be allowed within 100 yards of the only hot blond dude on the planet.

  26. Sudini says:

    ROFL @ dread pirate cuervo! “The only hot blond dude on the planet”
    I was going to say, I’m not usually attracted to blond guys for some reason, but this guy..lordy..

    I really don’t have any hate for Kate. And I just love the way he looks at her so intently. It’s so nice to see a guy really engage with his girlfriend like that. They’re body language shows a nice connection.

  27. Red Folder says:

    This is the only time in history I’d wanna be a cop! That way I could fondle the Skarsgard LEGALLY! Honestly, I would have tried to get him into a tent for some strip seach action. Wooooo!

    And if Bosworth *accidentally* got tapped with my night stick…well. . .

  28. hoodiegirl says:

    Lucky cop. haha

    Alex seems like he is a nice and down to earth guy. I hope this doesn’t become a common thing with him. I mean its Coachella, there are photographers everywhere.

  29. padiddle says:

    his association with her brings him down in my eyes, which makes me sad because so far he has seemed really down to earth and sexy, but I heard he was acting all kinds of douchey at the festival and if his association with her is any indication it seems like he’s totally gone hollywood. boo

  30. VV says:

    He’s dead to me :(

  31. Kelly says:

    Lordy, I TOLD you all he was a dumbarse. Thank you for proving me right. Stoopid is as stoopid does.

    Look at Kate Whatever trying to eat solids in those Coachella pics. LOL. Just imagine it’s a penis, love!

  32. lucy2 says:

    Just saw new pics of the two of them at some beach or pool. She’s all over him and he’s…reading a paper.

  33. duckyface says:

    These people are idiots. I don’t care how attractive either one of them is, they are both vapid douchebags. Too bad because True Blood is a great show, but I just lost a hell of a lot of respect for it. Why the hell am I looking at this crap? Oh, right, I am unemployed and it’s 5:00am. I am waiting for the Big One to drop L.A into the ocean.

  34. Squirtle says:

    Ewwww she looks like a homeless bag lady in those pictures! He could do sooooo much better! Don’t settle Alex!! *sigh* maybe he’ll come to his senses

  35. indapeli says:

    yeah i think he was just drunk and maybe the paparazzo was really annoying. I hope to hell he breaks up with kate, she’s no good for him, she’ll just break his heart

  36. Kassie says:

    notice that the celebs are never questioned? they could have provoked him or something. and i think that Kate is a bad match, but if he likes her then i guess there’s some quality to her. and what movie was she in?? i can’t think of one…. oh well, none of my business :)
