InStyle Men: The Calvin Klein Campaign is gritty like your “True Blood” – Series.
Skarsgard: Yes, almost like a Fritz-Lang Movie. I was really attracted to this Project! And I was really happy, to work with the Photographer Steven Klein. I knew him in the past and it was great and so well.
InStyle Men: Where do you like to go out?
Skarsgard: I rarely visit official Party’s, but I love to meet my friends at local Bars or Street-Pubs. Last Weekend I was in Stockholm again. I was really happy to see my friends and family. My Dad Stellan is one of my best friends, so we sat the whole Afternoon outside at a Street-local and had some Beer. This was great!
InStyle Men: What is your favorite Drink?
Skarsgard: Cognac and Whiskey, but more as a enjoyment after a great Dinner. When I go out, I drink beer or Vodka. But I should keep my Finger off “Snus” its a Swedish chewing tobacco. I don’t smoke, but when I’m drunk, I love Snus. When my Friends from Sweden visit me in L.A. they often brought my some Snus. But unfortunately I get a Hangover from it.
InStyle Men: What is you recipe against a Hangover?
Skarsgard: I cook some stew or Beef bourguignon, the main point is: Hearty! I love to cook and to invite my Friends. In my Family were cooking, collaborative Meals and a good glass of Wine really important Part of our lives. I’m glad, that I have such a good metabolism.
