Alexander Skarsgård's quotes

  • When I step into a project, I need to feel that there's a challenge, something new, something fresh about it. That being said, I'm kind of attracted to characters with a darkness or a sadness that they carry with them.
  • (2010, on his career) I'm always looking for something that's real and that's got meat on it. I think it's artistic suicide if you're too vain, or if you're afraid to play ugly. I would never fall for that.
  • (2011, on his father) We're more like brothers than father and son. We hang out. I'll take him out with my buddies in LA or in Stockholm, and it's never awkward or anything. He's 60, but he likes to party.
  • (2011) The nice thing is that as long as I'm doing this TV show, I've got fuck-you money. So I can say no to things. I never want to be in a position where I can't defend why I said yes.
  • I was nervous when I first started True Blood (2008). If you do a play or a movie, you know the complete arc of the character. You can see the end. But with a show like True Blood, you don't know what's going to happen.
  • I grew up in a very secular society. I have atheist parents. My morality never came from religion or from scripture, but that doesn't mean I can't have the same values or ethics.
  • I don't want to sound like a cliché but my hobbies are boating, fishing, lying in front of a fire and drinking red wine.
  • I have never smoked and I think it smells like a b****, but I like cigar smoke, it reminds me of my grandfather.
  • [on what he would change about the world] I would remove a bunch of idiots and bring in some honest angels.
  • There's not a single young girl that I know in Hollywood that I have not been paired with. But that's what happens if I get into a taxi with a girl, suddenly we're married.
