Alexander Skarsgård looks smashing in GQ

Ohlala… Alexander Skarsgård is featured on the GQ that will hit the newsstands on May 24.

What does Alex say about his intimate scenes with Anna Paquin? “It’s really clear to Steve and to everybody else what the deal is—which is that Anna is like a sister to me,” Skarsgård says. “Those love scenes take quite a bit of acting, actually. A lot of acting.”

…on why he decided to join the Swedish military:
“It was my way of going off into the unknown,” he says. “I didn’t want to just be somebody’s son.”

…on LA versus his native country:
“You walk into the coffee shop, and the girl asks how your day is. When I first moved here, I loved that. I know it’s shallow and superficial and she doesn’t give a f*ck about my day, but I still like it,” he says. Sweden, by contrast, is more reserved. “It’s difficult to get to know a Swede. But once you do, you’re in,” he says. And there’s a stronger sense of boundaries. “You’re never going to see a television show The Skarsgårds.”

…on his famous father, actor Stellan Skarsgård:
“I don’t think I came to acting to compete with my father. But, you know, he wasn’t around as much as normal dads, and seeing his passion…Maybe it was a way to get his attention… I mean, if anything, we’re trying to take care of him. He’s over the hill.”

Stellan on Alex and his brothers:
“Of course I’m threatened,” he says of his sons. “They’re younger, they’re better-looking, and they’re all trying to kill me.”

You can read the 3 page interview on the GQ website.

    I REALLY like that he said Anna was like a sister to him! :) It was always so obvious to me that she had sooo much more chemistry with Stephen than with Alex, and that these three are great friends.

      Alex and Anna have great chemistry as Eric and Sookie. For people rooting for a lack of chemistry in Season 4, sorry you are wrong. Anna and Alex are both excellent actors, and the fact Anna is married to Stephen won’t affect her scenes with Alex. Saying otherwise is disrespectful for the actors.

        Um, I didn’t say she didn’t have any chemistry with Alex, just that she had MORE chemistry with Stephen than with anyone else on the show. But they do make it work with other characters, like Eric, Alcide or Sam. How on Earth is that “disrespectful”?

        It proves what great actors they both are. I remember Stephen saying in an interview that if there is no chemistry between two people, you have to act really hard to make it seem as though you have chemistry. So, it’s all in the acting -fancy having to be intimate to someone you see as your sister and vice versa! Lol!

    “He does this thing with his eyes,” says creator and show-runner Alan Ball. “It’s like they become slightly unfocused and all of a sudden they’re mirrors to this ancient, 1,000-year-old soul.”

    What a lovely quote and this one, awe he sounds so grounded :)

    “If you’re an actor in Sweden, you do drama, you do comedy, you do action, you do film and live theater. You do whatever there is,” Skarsgård says. “Vanity is death to an actor.” Ball describes him as “the least actorly actor I’ve ever met.”

    Very good interview and gorgeous photos. Alex is certainly a stunning young man, and it’s so nice to read this and get some insight into his personality.
    I agree that he is poised to be a well-known celebrity in Hollywood – I hope it is good for him. He seems grounded and realistic about “the business”. And going home frequently surely helps put things in perspective.

    As for Anna, she is a consummate professional, and so is Stephen. Everyone knows this is acting. I am looking forward to their storylines. S4 will be full of surprises, I am sure!
