Alexander Skarsgard has posted an interesting shirtless family photo to Instagram.
The group photo includes his brothers Sam, Gustaf, Valter, Bill, and sister Eija. The two younger boys in the photo are their father Stellan‘s sons from his second marriage.
The True Blood star shows his toned body for the world to see and fans are appreciating the treat.
To give some background on the unusual family portrait, we need to look back at Skarsgard’s conversation with Connan O’Brien in which he explains how he is very comfortable with nudity.
“My dad and his side of the family are old hippies,” he revealed. “I was 14 the first time I saw my dad wearing pants. He was always naked.”
The movie star also explained to O’Brien that his dad spent a lot of time cooking in the nude.
When O’Brien jokingly asked if that was at all dangerous, Alexander Skarsgard said,
“It’s not that big, so it’s fine.”
“The stove is really low, so it’s not a problem,” he clarified.
Skarsgard told E! News a few weeks ago that he is almost done shooting the HBO hit series True Blood and after that he will be taking some time off.
“We wrap in a couple of weeks and I’m going to go to Iceland on a week long hike,” he said. “No phone, no iPad, no nothing. I’m very excited about that.”
The Swede is very popular with the ladies and he was recently accosted by fans at True Blood Season Six Premiere in Los Angeles.
But the actor is unfazed and takes the attention and passionate fans with a grain of salt.
“It’s fun,” he said of being a part of the show. “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.”
