Alexander Skarsgård Featured in Elle UK: “Vanity is Suicide For an Actor”By ZZ on Nov 3 2011 | 10 Comments »
Alexander Skarsgård is featured in the December 2011 issue of Elle UK magazine. Here are some excerpts from the interview:
On fame and vanity: Skarsgård claims to be a reluctant heart-throb. He scrunches up his face at the label. “Euggggh. Of course it’s flattering, but I prefer compliments about my acting. There’s too much vanity in Hollywood. Vanity is suicide for an actor. Your creativity will die if you focus on looking good. It’s one of the main reasons I don’t look at gossip about me online.” Just to push him, I ask what he says to compliments about his chest and arms. “thank you?” he says, slightly desperately. He looks mortified.
On love, relationships and Kate Bosworth: Although their two-year relationship recently ended (neither will discuss why publicly, he says), he is convincing when rolling out the “we’re still good friends” platitude. “I’ve got nothing but love for her. She’s amazing, a great actress and person.” Is he happier single or in relationships? “If it’s right, love is amazing. I’ve been very happy in relationships, very miserable in relationships, very happy single. I’m not stressing about it, but I want to get married and have children. I come from a family with six younger siblings. I love kids. That day will come. I’ve got plenty of time.”
