Alexander London Evening Standard Interview

8

Alexander spoke to the London Evening Standard a few weeks ago about “The Diary of a Teenage Girl”, sexism in Hollywood and his life after True Blood.

Alexander Skarsgård is beautiful when he goes on a feminist rant. “Sexism is a big problem in Hollywood,” says the actor who made a name for himself as the hot vampire Eric in the TV series True Blood, winning everyone over with his perfectly hewn jawline and Scandi swagger. “Boys can talk about sex and have sex in films and it’s cool but when girls do it they are just sluts. It’s so prudish and puritanical. Hollywood is difficult for women — people making films want super-hot, young girls, and then there are fewer great roles for women aged over 40.”

Skarsgård is here to help, wearing the modern superhero garb of a denim shirt and jeans by Acne, a label based in his native Sweden. We have met to discuss his new film, Diary of a Teenage Girl. Set in Seventies San Francisco, it is “a coming of age story” about 17-year-old Minnie (Londoner Bel Powley), who begins an affair with a man called Monroe (played by 38-year-old Skarsgård), who happens to be the boyfriend of her mother (Kristen Wiig).

Disappointment at “Diary” 18 Rating in the UK

Diary-Poster-600x889

The makers of “The Diary of a Teenage Girl” have expressed disappointment that the BBFC have given the movie an 18 certificate in the UK. “Diary” has been highly commended for exploring the sexuality of a 15 year old girl in an open and honest way, but it seems teenage girls will be unable to experience the movie for themselves (at least at British cinemas – teenage girls are very resourceful and if they are anything like I was, they will undoubtedly eventually find a way to watch).

Distributors Vertigo complained that the reviewing panel were all men “and we feel that they have missed the point of the film and its message.”

Director Marielle Heller added: “A girl’s coming of age is rarely seen on screen or given the same treatment as a boy’s.

“Sexuality is something we’re both experiencing and so if one side’s perspective is reflected, the other side should be reflected too.”
