Alexander made a surprise appearance at the Cabos Film Festival in Mexico yesterday to promote The Diary of a Teenage Girl. The photo above is from the festival’s official Instagram account, and there a a few other (not great quality) pictures below from Twitter.
I Tunes in the UK have now released the dates that UK fans can officially digitally download two of Alexander’s recent movies. “Hidden” is coming very soon, but we have to wait until the beginning of next year for “Diary”. (There’s no dates yet for the UK DVD releases).
The Guardian have just released a new interview with Alexander – From True Blood to Tarzan – How Alexander Skarsgard Swung Into Hollywood
I’m tall in Sweden,” says Alexander Skarsgård, lounging across a conveniently oversized sofa. “But I’m huge in Hollywood.” He’s not kidding: at 6ft 4in, he’s even taller in the flesh than he appears on screen. This must make film parties particularly awkward for people who find themselves pitching projects – or even just chatting – to his navel.
His height, in an industry full of titches, and his unmistakably Swedish looks, have helped Skarsgård stand out from the pack. He was perfect for a small turn in Zoolander as one of Ben Stiller’s buddies, and his imposing presence led to a breakout role in the vampire TV show True Blood. It also makes his turn in new movie The Diary of a Teenage Girl, in which his character has an affair with his girlfriend’s 17-year-old daughter (5ft 2in), even more shocking. The coming-of-age drama, which also stars Kristen Wiig and British newcomer Bel Powley, recently gained an 18 certificate in the UK for its explicit sex scenes, a decision its director has denounced.
