Alexander Skarsgard Is Gorgeous in Full Drag for ‘Diary of a Teenage Girl’ Premiere

Alexander Skarsgard Flashback
Remember when he went to the South Pole?

To no one’s surprise, Alexander Skarsgard was the most beautiful creature to walk last night’s San Francisco premiere of his new film, The Diary of a Teenage Girl.

The 38-year-old actor arrived looking ***flawless in full drag thanks to a luscious blonde wig, glittery gold dress, fake eyelashes and just the right amount of contouring.

Some people are saying that Skarsgard’s red carpet look was a tribute to co-star Joshua Grannell, a drag performer (Peaches Christ) who plays a transvestite in the movie. 

Kristen Wiig and Christopher Meloni also star in the Diary of a Teenage Girl, based on Phoebe Gloeckner’s graphic novel of the same name. Skarsgard plays a man who has an affair with his girlfriend’s teenage daughter.

The film, opening in limited release on Aug. 7, is part of our must-watch list for Summer 2015 films. (See our other picks here).
