Alexander Skarsgard: Blood, Sweat, and Motorcycles For Sexy New Photoshoot!

Alexander Skarsgard is smart, funny, and oh-so-very talented — and you better believe he’s 100% man!

In the newest issue of M magazine (appropriately devoted to manhood), the True Blood star suits up for a sexy photoshoot at LA’s Fortune Gym. Taking a cue from Paul Newman in Somebody Up There Likes Me, the 6’4” Swed dons Everlasts and prosthetic cuts for a bloody boxing-inspired shoot.

In the article, director Henry-Alex Rubin dispels rumors that Alex is anything like his vampire character Eric Northman. “True Blood capitalizes on his brooding, mysterious quality, but in real life Alex is very sweet and thoughtful and even kind of boyish. Alex doesn’t act like a handsome lady-killer. He’s very respectful, and that’s something you wouldn’t expect. He doesn’t exploit or even take advantage of his looks, and I think that’s telling.”
