Alexander Skarsgård for WSJ. Magazine

Posted on September 07, 2018

Alexander Skarsgård covers the latest Men’s Style Issue of WSJ. Magazine photographed by Annemarieke van Drimmelen and styled by George Cortina.



On filming season 2 of “Big Little Lies”: “I was staying with my friends, and they have two kids, 8 and 10. It meant so much to have that lightness, to go home to a lovely family life and hang out and play with the kids just so I didn’t spend five months in that darkness. They saved me.”

On filming with Meryl Streep: “I haven’t worked with her yet, but I’m excited,” he says, noting that he will soon return to L.A. to shoot the rest of his scenes. “If she’s a hologram again, I’ll throw a fit.”

On his favorite holiday [Sweden’s Midsummer]: “For someone who hasn’t experienced it, it’s fucking surreal. You celebrate by sticking a 20-foot pole covered in leaves and flowers into the ground. A phallic pole in a hole—the symbolism is very clear. So, after you fertilize Mother Earth, you get shitfaced and then you dance around the pole and sing.”
