Alexander Skarsgård as Eric Northman35-year-old Alexander Skarsgård, aka True Blood’s Eric Northman, is nothing short of breathtaking on the cover of the October 2011 issue of Men’s Journal.

Skarsgård on the attention he receives:

“Of course it’s flattering. I mean, God, I’m human. But you have to be able to laugh at yourself.”

Skarsgård also speaks about his days in the Swedish Navy:

“We’d come at night in speedboats, with our dry suits and our weapons, and, under the cover of darkness, swim onto the island. Then we’d camp out somewhere, dig a hole in the dirt, and take pictures and notes.”

His Melancholia co-star Kirsten Dunst spoke on Skarsgård’s personality:

“I was surprised at how goofy he was. Almost like a puppy in a body that’s too big for him. All these girls are like, ‘Oh my god, he’s so hot.’ But he’s really such a goof.”

    Sorry Kirsten, goofy or not, he’s HOT.  Who doesn’t like to receive compliments.  Saw Straw Dogs.  He played a great part in it.  He is on his way to becoming the next leading man for sure.
