Relax ladies, Alexander Skarsgard is still on the market. At Wednesday night’s GQ Men of the Year party at the Chateau Marmont Hotel in Hollywood, the True Blood star told RadarOnline.com exclusively that he and Kate Bosworth are just friends.
“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.”
Skarsgard was one of the night’s special guests; he was honored as one of the “Men Who Saved HBO”.
For the record, Kate also attended Wednesday night’s party but avoided the red carpet, sneaking quietly into the hotel instead.
Skarsgard, 33, who plays brooding vampire Eric Northman on the HBO hit series True Blood, will begin shooting season three along with the rest of the cast later this month. The actor told RadarOnline.com that fans can expect a lot more from Eric this time around.
“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.”
At 6-foot-four, Alexander’s model good looks are just as striking in person as they are on the small screen. Last season, he had to get up close and personal with True Blood co-star Anna Paquin — who in real life is engaged to co-star Stephen Moyer. But Skarsgard says there’s no tension on set.
“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.”
So there were absolutely no sparks flying between Skarsgard and Paquin during last season’s steamy love scenes?
“Not at all,” he said. “Anna and I are completely platonic, and Stephen knows that.”
