Alexander Skarsgard, Alexa Chung Dating: It ‘Is Serious’

Actor Alexander Skarsgard is reportedly off of the market!

Us Weekly confirmed on Sunday that the True Blood actor is dating British model Alexa Chung.

An inside source reportedly opened up about the new couple’s relationship and how their busy work schedules actually work out in their favor.

“It’s a fun relationship for both of them. She’s just about as busy as he is and it’s not really feasible [for them] to become a more committed couple, but the hang outs are great.”

Another insider claimed that the relationship between Alexandar Skarsgard and Alexa Young “is serious and has really heated up.” The 38-year-old Battleship actor was actually spotted on Friday enjoying a romantic date with 31-year-old TV personality at Botanical Gardens and Prospect Park in Brooklyn, New York.

According Us Weekly, the photo that was posted to Alexa Chung’s official Instagram page on Friday was actually taken by Alexander Skarsgard.

Alexander Skarsgard opened in a March 2013 interview with Elle magazine about dating – especially when it came to the ups and downs of dating an actress.

“It’s tough with your schedule. The flip side is, it’s a weird job, and to have someone who knows what you’re going through…but it’s so much about the individual. It’s more complicated than saying, ‘This is what it’s like with an actress.'”

During the same interview, Skarsgard also made it clear that he did not believe in soul mates, or that one special person that is out there just for him.

“When you meet someone, of course you want it to last forever. It’d be very depressing if you didn’t feel that way. But things change, and you maybe grow apart. You have to accept that.”

Alexa Chung was romantically linked to Alex Turner, the lead vocalist of the Arctic Monkeys for four years up until 2011. Before she started dating Turner, Alexa reported lived with fashion photographer David Titlow during their relationship, which lasted more than three years.

Alexander Skarsgard dated actress Kate Bosworth between 2009 and 2011.
