Alexander Skarsgard has had a rapid rise to fame, and he can thank the last six years of True Blood for that. 

The Swedish actor has gone from an unknown to being one of the sexiest guys in Hollywood, and there is always speculation in regards to whom the actor is dating on a given day. Including past romances with Hollywood starlets like Kate Bosworth and Evan Rachel Wood and current speculation surrounding himself and his The East costar Ellen Page, the actor is fresh bait for tabloids — but he says he doesn't mind being in the public eye.

"I enjoy it," Alexander said at the red carpet premiere of True Blood's upcoming sixth season. "It's fun. The fact that we have all these fans here [and] they've been here since early morning, it means a lot because I'm so passionate about the show and doing it with these people I love and getting to share it with the world...It's fantastic."

That said, the actor revealed that he is planning on taking a break from Hollywood very soon. "We wrap in a couple of weeks and I'm going to go to Iceland on a week-long hike," Alexander said. "No phone, no iPad, no nothing — I'm very excited about that."

How rugged! We have just one rule for you, Alexander. Come back!
