Fans of Alexander Skarsgard have been long wondering if the True Blood actor is dating Ellen Page, his co-star in upcoming action-drama The East. Though neither actor has confirmed nor denied the relationship, the duo turned heads when they showed up at the Hollywood premiere last week looking mighty cute and cozy.
In a recent interview from early June, Alex and Ellen certainly didn’t do anything to squash these growing rumors. When asked how they prepared for the film — a suspenseful and provocative espionage thriller — the following conversation only added to the speculation.
Alex: I did what I always do and just Googled myself.
Ellen: And I Googled pictures of Alexander Skarsgard.
Alex: We do that every Sunday.
Ellen: I was like, “Oh, is that who I get to work with?! Yeah, that’s nice.” I typed in “Alexander Skarsgard sex scene,” and then I hit images. [...] Dang! He’s got a body.
Romantic feelings or not, it’s pretty obvious that these two have a chemistry and feel comfortable around each other. However, it’s the “We do that every Sunday” comment that really has us scratching our heads.
First of all, Alex we’d her, which we all know is code for a relationship. Pair that with his reference to Sunday — the international couple’s day of brunching, movies, and lounging around the house — and what does he expect us to assume?
What do you think, Trubies? Are Alex and Ellen headed for a happily ever after, or are these rumors just getting out of hand?
