Alexander Skarsgard Says 'True Blood' is 'Tame'

Alexander Skarsgard in Out magazine

While some critics have called True Blood overly sexual, series star Alexander Skarsgard would have to disagree.

November's Out cover boy says he thinks the show is actually pretty mundane!

“[True Blood is] very tame, by Swedish standards." he tells the magazine. "That always strikes me as weird, because parents in the States freak out if their kids see a nipple or a butt cheek, but, at the same time, they’re OK with their kids watching people bash each other’s heads in with baseball bats. In interviews in the U.S. all people want to talk about is nudity."

To him, being naked with his costars isn't something to be shy about on set.

"If it makes sense as a scene, I’ll do it," he says. "I don’t even think about it."

Then again, it appears he has a rather free spirited approach to sexuality. When asked how to deal with Sweden's long, cold months, he says, "When you’re bored, just have sex."
