More naked Alexander Skarsgård in store on ‘True Blood’
Hollywoodnews.com: Let’s take a moment to thank Sweden for a few things such as Abba, Ace of Base, IKEA and “True Blood” star Alexander Skarsgård’s nudity.
“I’m not a prude. I’m from Sweden, and it’s different there,” the burgeoning actor tells Popeater, “I love to be naked. It’s kind of liberating.”
Skarsgård, who plays vampire baddie Eric on the show and engages in lots of sex scenes, further elaborates, “If it makes sense, I’ll do nudity, and it’s made sense every single time I’m naked on the show.”
“I’ve got a very, very graphic scene coming up [in “True Blood”] that I shot with a man,” Skarsgård teases.
And the more dicey the scenes, the better. When it comes to choosing projects to work on, Skarsgård doesn’t like any of that cutesy-wootsy stuff. For example, he appeared in Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” music video, directed by fellow Swede Jonas Ackerland, because it didn’t have any romantic clichés.
“I didn’t want to do something if we’d just be walking down the beach or holding hands or that sort of thing,” he says, “When Jonas pitched it, he was like, ‘It won’t be anything silly. You’re going to try to kill her and push her off a balcony and then she’ll come back and she’ll poison you and you die.’ ”
“I worked on it for six hours at least, six or seven hours, and I guess a lot of people saw it.
“The thing is, you can work on a movie for three months, and no one sees it, and then you do something like this for six hours, and that’s what people talk about!”
