Conan O’Brien may get a Pulitzer Prize for how much he got out of True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgard during his interview last night – well, at least he should. Conan got straight to the heart of the matter for us ladies, asking whether women are a little aggressive with him. He replied with that grin that we all know and love, “I like women a little aggressive.”
Conan said his assistant wanted Alexander to bite her (don’t we all?), and Alexander admitted that’s a pretty common request. With social media such that it is these days, he doesn’t do it, though, as he knows that could be something he does until the end of time (or when he meets the true death).
Conan was a bit resentful that Alexander, who plays Eric Northman on True Blood, gets all the chicks, insisting Eric is a bad guy. “He’s not a bad guy,” replied Alexander. “He occasionally kills people” but “He’s nice about it.”
The best part of the interview? The lengthy discussion about nudity, of course! Alexander said Swedish people (he was born and raised in Sweden) are much more comfortable with it, saying it’s “less stigmatized” over there. But no one likely expected him to talk about how his dad, veteran actor Stellan Skarsgard, walks around without clothes on, even cooking meals. “It’s not that big so it’s fine,” Alexander revealed. Ouch! The True Blood star almost blushes trying explain that's not what he meant to say, but we think someone is going to have some explaining to do at his next family reunion!
