“True Blood’s” Alexander Skarsgard chats about why Swedes are so liberal

HollywoodNews.com: SWEDES CHAT: For OUT’s November cover story, True Blood star Alexander Skarsgård chats with filmmaker and fellow Swede Jonas Åkerlund about why Swedes are so liberal regarding their sexuality, the American media’s obsession with nudity, and the how the his progressive HBO series is changing attitudes in the U.S.

Skarsgård recognizes that even True Blood, considered envelope-pushing in America, remains “very tame, by Swedish standards.” He tells OUT “…that always strikes me as weird because parents in the States freak out if their kids see a nipple or a butt cheek, but, at the same time, they’re OK with their kids watching people bash each other’s heads in with baseball bats. In interviews in the U.S. all people want to talk about is nudity…. If it makes sense as a scene, I’ll do it. I don’t even think about it.”

Skarsgård also applauds True Blood creator Alan Ball for challenging America’s attitudes. “Yeah, well, we’ve really come a long way. What’s interesting is when you have a character like Lafayette, who’s black and gay, if you can find someone – some guy who doesn’t know any gay people or black people, who may have all these prejudices – if that guy watches the show and thinks, I really like this character, then you’ve done something pretty good.”
