If you ever have the chance to meet Alexander Skarsgard — hey, anything's possible, right? — keep your cool and do not, under any circumstances, compliment his god-like physique or ask him to bite you.

"There will be no biting … I prefer compliments about my acting," the 36-year-old True Blood star said in an interview with Elle magazine. "There's too much vanity in Hollywood."

Of course, that's easy to say when you're born as naturally beautiful as Alex.

"Vanity is suicide for an actor," he continued. "Your creativity will die if you focus on looking good. It's one of the main reasons I don't look at gossip about me online." 

And this whole time we thought he read our articles! Total bummer. At least we can find comfort in the fact that he has moved on completely from his ex-girlfriend, Kate Bosworth, who he met while filming Straw Dogs in 2009.

"I'm not stressing about it, but I want to get married and have children," he said. "I come from a family with six younger siblings. I love kids. That day will come. I've got plenty of time."

For now, we'll just ogle these adorable pictures of him playing Mr. Mom on the set of What Maisie Knew, which is scheduled to hit theaters sometime this year.
