Alexander Skarsgard: 'I Don't Want a Sock Around It' for Nude Scenes


While Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin wear a "sock" and a "patch", respectively, while filming nude scenes for True Blood, Alexander Skarsgard tells Rolling Stone that he won't wear anything:

"I don't want a sock around it, that feels ridiculous. If we’re naked in the scene, then I’m naked. I’ve always been that way."

And we'll keep seeing it according to creator Alan Ball: "To me, vampires are sex. I don't get a vampire story about abstinence. I'm 53. I don't care about high school students. I find them irritating and uninformed."

Skars  In related news, Pretty on the Outside offers up an alternate three-way male Rolling Stone cover.

Also in related news, I doubt anyone had a sock around it in this scene from Skarsgard's Swedish film The Dog Trick, AFTER THE JUMP...

  3. "I'm 53" isn't he more like 34? That has to be a typo!

  4. It's Alan Ball who's 53. Alex is immortal and always just the right age...

  5. I'm willing to bet my fangs that no straight men in the history of the world have ever had a conversation like this one in a gym shower.

  6. Glad to see he lets his chest hair grow out, at least when he's not on camera.

  7. Oj, vilket bra han såg ut! Great scene and there I find him attractive and hot, but not on TB. Weird! Kanske det därför att han talar på svenska!
    Still, I prefer the great Gilmore Girls singing "Här kommer Pippi Långstrump, tjolahopp tjolahej tjolahoppsan-sa..." as better scene.

  8. I was feeling lazy and thinking about skipping my cardio workout today... until I saw that video. Damn you, Skarsgard!

  9. From Wikipedia: Alexander Johan Hjalmar Skarsgård (Swedish pronunciation: [ˈskɑːʂɡoːɖ]; born August 25, 1976) is a Swedish actor and director. He is best known for his roles as Eric Northman on HBO's hit TV show True Blood and Brad Colbert in Generation Kill.

    So he has a birthday coming up.

  11. Sock it to me !

  12. Well it make seem hot to else, what about his co-stars. I'm sure they don't like his bits grinding up against them. But I'll be their stunt double.

  13. I just don't get it. He does absolutely nothing for me. But then, I found TB boring and derivative so stopped watching it after a few episodes.

  14. Doesn't do shit for me either. He's not unattractive, just kinda blah. I think I'd like him better with more facial hair, kinda give him an edgy look.

  15. Oh my god! Im not alone! Everytime I watch TB with friends they openly drool and squeel about him but I seriously feel nothing. The same thing goes for David Beckham.

  16. ok, the man is shmexy. plus, his peen is prolly uncut, so i'm cool with that.

  17. What a coincidence! I don't want him to wear a sock during his nude scenes either!

  18. I'll take the one on the left.

  19. Nice he doesn't wear a sock. Now I wish the clip didn't wear subtitles.

  20. He's Swedish, they really don't care about nudity, or homosexuality. The wonderful wonderful Swedish.

  22. Sad but i couldn't even tell you one identifying trait about the other 2 in the shower! They could have been camels for all i know! Love A.S.!!!!

  24. Well, at least Ken proves that it's not just the political threads that make people look stupid.
