Alexander Skarsgard’s GQ cover is making True Blood fans swoon with delight! Featured on the June 2011 cover, get the details here on what the star had to say in his interview about co-star Anna Paquin (who he looks at like a sister!), his Dad and more below!
Sweden’s Alexander Skarsgard has been dazzling the ladies ever since he became a household name thanks to his role as Eric Northman in True Blood! And the thirty-three year old star continues to do so on the June 2011 cover of QG! Inside the actor talks about his famous father Stellan (with a tad bit of animosity some say?), and his co-star Anna Paquin and more! Read on below….
So what did the actor have to say about his famous father who has appeared in Good Will Hunting as the professor who just couldn’t handle Matt Damon’s genius problem solving talents?!
“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.”
Also discussing those intense on screen moments with Anna Paquin, who is married to co-star Stephen Moyer, Skarsgard says it takes a lot more than True Blood fans think!
“It’s really clear to Steve and to everybody else what the deal is — which is that Anna is like a sister to me,” he says. “Those love scenes take quite a bit of acting, actually. A lot of acting.”
And when it came time to discuss what most Hollywood celebs have to face, the stress, the spotlight, Alexander explains his beliefs:
“Hollywood can be like kids playing marbles on the schoolyard. Everybody wants the shiny marble until one kid says he doesn’t. Then nobody will touch it. So it’s important that I make good decisions now.”
