Alexander-Skarsgard-GQ-AwardsTrue Blood stars Stephen Moyer, Alexander Skarsgard and Ryan Kwanten were honored last night, November 18, 2009 at the GQ Men of the Year Awards as “The Men Who Saved HBO.”  The event was held at the Chateau Marmont Hotel in Hollywood, and while Stephen and Ryan are both busy with film project set outside of the country, Alex was able to attend the event to represent the men of True Blood at the Awards.

While at the event was able to catch up with Alex and ask him some questions about what we can expect to see in season 3 of True Blood and with his character, Eric NorthmanAlex stated that:

“There’s a lot of nudity,” he said. “As far as Eric goes, there’s going to be a lot violence and a lot of sex — with women and men! So it should be interesting.”

Asked if his love scenes with Anna Paquin are tense or uncomfortable (since she is engaged to co-star Stephen Moyer), Alex responded:

“No. I mean, I can’t wait to get back to my L.A. family,” he said referring to the True Blood cast. “I love Stephen, we’re friends and I love Anna. They’re great together. I actually think it makes things easier that way.”

Of course asked he if there was a special lady in his life, in particular they asked about certain rumors about who he may be dating currently to which Alex remarked:

“I’m not dating anyone, those are just rumors,” he laughed. When asked if there were any special women in his life, the hunky actor replied “my mom and my sister.”

Now that is a very sweet response.  Although Stephen, Alex and Ryan were honored at the GQ Awards with the title of “The Men Who Saved HBO” let us not forget about Sam, Nelsan, Todd, Jim, Chris, William and Alan who should have be included in the list.  All of them would have looked great in tuxedos in the featured photoshoot in the December issues of GQ which is available at newsstand now.
