Alexander Skarsgard may be a sex symbol thanks to his role as Eric Northman on True Blood, but he's not letting any of the fame and adulation go to his head.

"Yeah, [my father, Stellan Skarsgard] tells me not to get too used to it," he tells Vogue Australia. 

Alex has spoken often about being totally fine with the nude scenes on the show. He really and truly does not showing his butt on camera.

"Well, that's the money shot," he explains. "People get bored when they see my face. And yes, they probably recognize my a** just as much."

As for his love life, this currently single hottie knows what he's looking for. Ladies, be prepared to laugh!

"There's a word in Swedish, sjalvironi, which means self-irony. I like a woman who has a sense of humor, and who can laugh at herself," he says.

"I don't like someone who takes themselves too seriously. That's very important to me."

Which makes it very important to us!
