So are Alexander Skarsgard & Ellen Page really fooling around or what?

First: OMG. OMG OMG OMG. How incredible is this magazine cover? Like, Alexander Skarsgard is good-looking, for sure, but I’ve gotten used to seeing him look kind of dirtbaggy in his ill-fitting pants and grungy shirts so when I see him with proper lighting and he’s making sweet love the camera… it’s incredible. Skarsgard has just made it back on my list!!! Anyway, this cover from Man of the World (more like VIKING DONG of the World) is all we have – no other photos from this editorial, and no interviews!

Alex is gearing up the ol’ press machine these days because of True Blood’s Season 6 and because of The East, which comes out in May. Alex was just in Austin, Texas for SXSW to premiere The East with the cast. You know this is the film he did with Ellen Page, right? And he and Ellen got along so well that they either started dating (side-eye) or they just became friends. Anyway, the Ellen thing was like a dozen rumored girlfriends ago, except that because they were just seen together at SXSW, new rumors are percolating. Ellen tweeted these photos of their partying in Austin:

If I’m just judging their couple status on the photos, I’m saying they are actually hitting it. Something about the way she’s leaning into him… something about the way he playfully bites her. Mmm. Did anyone just need to cross their legs? Yeah. Besides that, it looks like Alex and Ellen took the same flight back to LA together, and Alex carried Ellen’s bags for her at LAX – see those photos here. This prompted The Mail to declare that Ellen is Alex’s “girlfriend”. Ugh. I mean, maybe. Could be.

While at SXSW, Alex and the cast of The East did a fun little piece together with Entertainment Weekly, where they basically let EW hang out with them “backstage” – you can read the full piece here. Alex is described by his coworkers as “low-key” with “mellow charm”. When the cast arrived at the theater premiering their film, all of the people waiting wanting to see Alex, and he thoughtfully worked his way through the line of fans, “accepting hugs, signed autographs, taking pictures with young women who had driven into town from Dallas and Houston.” During the premiere, “Only Skarsgard stayed for the movie, watching his nude scenes like a grown up, without flinching or smirking.” At the end of the SXSW extravaganza, Alex told EW: “This feels like a vacation. It’s hectic but I’m with some of my best friends and I get to talk about a movie that I’m so passionate about. I get to hang out with these people and they’re so f—ing amazing.”

    No this is strictly a bearding relationship, so he can do what he does every Friday, play around with men.

    • lune says:

      Ellen swings for the other team so I think it’s a close relationship

      • Jamteezy says:

        Ellen is super gay, someone I know from her hometown says she has slept with every lady there.

    • spugzbunny says:

      I never understood why people think Askars is gay? I may be biased because I want him to poke me with his wang but he seems like the most alpha male with a history of womanising? Ellen I am sure is gay though

      • Sefa says:

        Because he’s European.

      • Lin says:

        Because he’s Swedish and has no problem showing affection for his male friends.

      • Eleonor says:

        Sorry, I don’t get the “European” thing. There’s some kind of stereotype about our men, I don’t know?

      • chris says:

        Because many Americans are petrified of homosexuality, anyone who shows any sort of affection for the same sex is clearly gay and therefore to be feared and hated! Europeans tend not to care about such ridiculous things.

      • mom2two says:

        I never understood the assumption that he is gay either. Maybe he is, maybe he isn’t.
        It does seem like from these pictures that he is at least, good friends, with Ellen Page. And who cares what they are doing together, it seems like they are having fun.
        Alex does come across as a very nice guy. It’s part of his appeal.

      • I'm Gonna Leave Soon says:

        History of womanising? He keeps it pretty quiet unlike Fassbender the other day. But then aren’t all actors in their position like that?

    • Liv says:

      I don’t think he’s gay, but I think she is – isn’t she a lesbian? So it’s probably him bearding for her.

      • leeann says:

        Ellen is rumored to be gay and just because a man and woman are seen in the same room, walking down the street, or having a drink doesn’t mean their dating. people are so quick to jump to conclusions when they don’t have evidence to back up their assumptions, and this leads to many actors having turmoil in their real relationships.

    • Darlene says:

      Agreed. For them both. Double bearding!

    • RHONYC says:

      why am i not mad at the image of him getting some dong???

      hmmm…sexy is sexy, right? :lol:

    • gefeylich says:

      Maybe this is a Jodie Foster/Mel Gibson thing, or a Kristen Stewart/Rob Pattinson thing, or a Chasing Amy thing: strange bedfellows, mega-bearding, or “lesbian switching temporarily due to deep dicking.”

      Whatever it is, Page is a lucky girl.

  2. lucy2 says:

    I say just friends. Ellen seems very private, so if they were together I kind of doubt she’d put the photos out there like that.

  3. marie says:

    gah, SO HOT, not fair. I would hit so, very, very hard..

    anyway, I would love it if him and Ellen got together-doubtful it’s true though.

  4. mkyarwood says:

    Gosh, she’s great <3

    • annaloo. says:

      I like her, and I’d buy them together. In fact, it would raise my respect of him to be dating someone like Ellen Page bc she seems so anti-typical Hollywood starlet.

  5. Gwen says:

    Kaiser, when Alex is drunk, he playfully bites everyone. They’re not dating. Why is it that he can’t be friendly with women without rumours of them dating? It’s getting SO old by now!

    So old that I almost forgot to comment of the pics. SWEET JEBUS HOW HOT IS HE *drooools*

  6. GiGi says:

    I love her. I love him. But I don’t think penetration is happening here. They seem like buddies – but then we all know how he treats his buddies – remember that drunken video with all the rubbing and biting… yeah… I bet he’s a biter… I bet he’s rough… I bet he…. whoa. Cold shower alert!

  7. Hannah says:

    They’re both really private so I doubt that if they were dating Ellen would put any pictures of them on Twitter. And Alex seems like a really chivalrous guy, he probably would carry anyone’s luggage about.
    If they are, though: Cool couple!

    • Minx says:

      He would probably offer to help carry a stranger’s luggage. LOL! I think that’s just how he rolls. That being said, that was HIS luggage he was putting in the car. Burberry, in fact. There are pics out there right after he bought it. You know, I’m kinda sad that I actually know that.

      *sighs at the gay rumors* I wouldn’t mind if he was, but the guy is straight. I have no idea about Ellen though. She’s such a cutie.

      • Raven says:

        THIS. They are obviously just friends and that IS his luggage. People are so anxious to hook him up. Ellen is a cutie, but preeetty sure she’s not into guys.

  8. Cookie says:

    It would be cute if they were actually dating.

  9. Kaye says:

    He seems to have a lot of women friends who are JUST friends, so I can believe they’re buds. And I’ve heard from many different sources that she’s gay.

  10. Live_laugh_love says:

    He can bite me and rub and grind on me whenever he wants

  11. dina says:

    Mannnn… I went to the same high school as Ellen and it is so surreal that she’s now this mega star that may or may not be banging my dream man.SO JEALOUSSSS.

  12. Oops says:

    I must be blind because I just saw friends. In some pics, my best friend and I would be a couple for the press, we were photographed in much more compromising positions :)

  13. spugzbunny says:

    I don’t think they are as that’s just how he is I think but it would be a match made in awesome heaven.

    I think she prefers the lady biscuits any way does she not?

  14. RavenClaw says:

    Way to overly read into fun friend pictures! Ellen is gay and even if she wasn’t, it’s actually possible for men and women to be good friends. Alex’s taste in friends (Kenneth the page!) just makes me like him more :)

  15. TorontoE says:

    Wasn’t there a blind out that discussed a new bearding relationship. One that was surprising because the woman was quite close to coming out? Sounds like these two.

    • Lin says:

      That stupid blind item (From Crazy Days and Nights which makes up stuff) says they’re in an actual fake relationship, except Alex and Ellen are NOT at all. Like…they’ve only been spotted together a few times in the past YEAR and that was when hanging out and doing promotion for their movie.

      As someone who’s a fan it’s frustrating when this stuff is so incredibly patently false but for some reason people believe it.

  16. Tinypixie says:

    She’s gay, darling! Was dating Clea Duvall.

  17. Nev says:

    If he is gay woo hoo!!! Hahahaha
    Soooooo YUM.

  18. Lin says:

    This is honestly the most stupid rumor in the world.

    2) Even if she was into dudes, she is the complete opposite of his typ.e
    3) When he’s drunk he gets touchy feel with literally everyone.
    4) He’s carrying his own luggage that he’s had for years that are even in the airport pics you posted last week

    I don’t even understand how these started. It’s literally impossible for people to be friends? oy.

  19. Amanda says:

    I’m happily married but I’d be a big fat liar if I didn’t admit I would love some of that Viking Dong.

    • kingkayski says:

      I too,am happily married,but wouldn’t mind some of that Viking hotness over there,and please i want him drunk all the time,don’t mind some roughness,toughness and maybe handcuffs on the side,jeez,i guessed time for that cold shower,lol!

  20. Ms Kay says:

    I wonder what Ellen’s girlfriend think of it… probably laughing.. no?

  21. GoodCapon says:

    I find him moderately attractive but look at that 4th photo. Ugh. He has a huge head and even bigger forehead going on. WTF?

    And Ellen Page looks so drunk in the photos.

  22. Abby says:

    For the love of *eye roll* … I see just friends. There’s a pic out there with his nose in one of the writer’s (Benji??) ears while enjoying a man-hug. OMG! He must be boning him too!

  23. Tessa says:

    My assumption? She’s gay, he has a huge crush on her because she’s awesome and adorable, and when they drink they flirt, but it ends there…because she’s gay. I get touchy and flirty with everyone when I’m drunk, but I don’t necessarilly want to sleep with them. She probably loves Alex, and feels comfortable and protected by him, but she’s into girls.

    • claire says:

      Thumbs up for this theory. I saw a video montage recently of him and the actress that plays Pam. He was so touchy-feely and playful with her, who’s very married. It’s obvious he’s just very affectionate with his friends.

  24. grabbyhands says:

    I’m thinking no. I thought it was pretty well determined that she was batting for the other team? Anyway, they’ve been friends for a bit now and you always see him being super goofy and affectionate with his friends. Having said that, if it came out that they were in it for realz, I couldn’t hate-they are cute together.

  25. bigbowood says:

    Didn’t Ellen essentially confirm that she’s a lesbian (in a Jodie-Fosteresque non confirmatory way) when she hosted SNL a few years ago? Couple that with the Alexander-is-gay rumors, and what you get is the equivalent of Rosie O’Donnell’s pre-coming-out obsession with Tom Cruise.

  26. Sefa says:

    I’m amazed by the rumors of Alex and Ellen considering the constant rumors about Ellen’s taste for women. But hey, maybe they’re super close or maybe he was so hot he convinced to give dick a chance. (I’m putting my money on good friends with ASkars lack of personal boundaries, especially when drunk.)

  27. bettyrose says:

    As long as they’re not exclusive, who cares? I could totally mess around with a guy who was also dating Ellen Page.

  28. Dinah says:

    Oh, FFS. She’s eyeing the blonde.
    The blond **CHICK**.

  29. Stacia says:

    ASCAR is kinda cute but dude has a BIG ASS FIVEHEAD!

    And I think Ellen is on the other team.

  30. Jenna says:

    Oh, FFS have you not seen some of the pictures of him when he’s had a few? He hangs over/grinds on/plays with EVERYONE. Not only woman, but men too. He’s a friendly drunk with an apparent ear fetish! Hell, he doesn’t even need to be drunk to mess around and take pics like that. Besides, I thought everyone knew which team Ellen swings for.

  31. Dhavynia says:

    So if someone is private they’re gay? Thats the same assumption ppl make when someone has a roommate of the same sex and it’s really stupid.
    Anyway, if they’re boning each other then shes a lucky girl because if I was her I wouldnt b walking for days (sorry for the bluntness but he man does that to me)

  32. TX Laney says:

    All I took from that article is the idea that if the rumors are true in whatever universe then I still have a chance at the Viking!!!!!

  33. CC says:

    No clue if they are or not, but I still pledge allegiance to the ABBA motto (Anyone But Bosworth Association). So, if they are dating, or even PR dating, it’s something that doesn’t disgust me. Even if I’m not invested in ASkars any longer.

  34. Jen34 says:

    Alex parties hard. I get the impression that ‘loves the one he’s with’, if you know what I mean. I bet he went home with someone that night, but it wasn’t Ellen.

  35. Sweet Dee says:

    I want True Blood to come back. NOW.

    Also, did I see the words “nude scenes”? Add The East to the list of movies I need to see.

    I’ve seen pics of Ellen kissing women, but that doesn’t mean anything. The more damning evidence against this is the fact that beloved, sexy Alex acts like this toward women and men alike when he’s drunk and also, neither of them would post a couple picture on Twitter.

    Now, back to my Viking dong fantasies…gotta love the five-head mmmm…

    • cr says:

      Sadly, as The East’s rating is PG-13, there’s probably not much more than what we’d see on TB.

  36. Katie says:

    If all the ridiculous blind items I read are true, this is a bearding contract for both of them.

    If my dreams are true, than he’s just a fun drunk who’s biding his time until we’re in the same bar at the same time so we can be fun drunks together until death do us part.

    Kaiser, I think it’s hilarious that you think he looks good on that cover, because I think he looks like a drunk frat boy (read: douchebag) on the cover. That’s the best that magazine could do? lol

  37. Jaana says:

    I hope this isnt true. It would confirm the gay rumors too.

  38. Devon says:

    Nah, they’re just friends. Loads of people get frisky and flirty when drunk and men in Europe even more so. If they were actually dating, which I think would be adorable, they wouldn’t let photos like this be taken.

    • Gemini08 says:

      Not necessarily. There were candid photos of him and Evan Rachel Wood together when they dated.

      • Devon says:

        I only ever saw one of Alex and Evan and they were just walking around, I think it was Shreveport? If there were more, I haven’t seen them.

        They could totally be dating but based off what transpired with his relationship with Kate Bosworth, I doubt it.

      • cr says:

        IIRC, there weren’t more to the ERW and Alex photos than those taken at that festival. But she confirmed a couple of years ago that they dated. She never mentioned a time frame, but I don’t think it was that long or that serious.

  39. Gemini08 says:

    Oh, Alex…how you make me quiver…

  40. Diana says:

    He’s never made it out MY list, he’s hot no matter what. I think I like these two together. Let’s see what happens.

  41. Ginger says:

    Well according to Alex and one of his former co stars they had to drink before doing a heavy Sam sex love scene on True Blood. Take that how u will but I interpreted that it made them a bit nervous playing against their own reality. But they had a job to do and did it well. Maybe Alex is too convincing?? I don’t care he’s hot!

  42. anonymous fan says:

    I wish it were true.I am also a short brunette and think it’d be awesome if he gave a nice cute brunette a shot instead of endless skinny blondes he seems to like.Maybe not Ellen,but I would love if he dated a woman like her.

    • Minx says:

      I don’t think Alex discriminates when it comes to girlfriends. From everything I’ve heard he’s an equal opportunity kind of guy, and he’s definitely dated brunettes before. Sara Tun, Amelia Drake come to mind. I think it’s just exaggerated gossip that’s tried to pigeonhole him as liking only skinny blonde chicks. When they’re not trying to say he’s into dudes, that is. *eye roll*

      • anonymous fan says:

        I only meant it would be nice if he got with a cute short girl instead of the gorgeous ones and models.

  43. Lexi says:

    GOD, I WANT HIM!!!!

  44. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    I love him. That is all. :)

  45. serena says:

    She seems in love with him.

    • Jackie says:

      ITA with Lin and Minx. There are also some pics from SXSW where Ellen does not look remotely into him; in fact, she looks super bored! He looked more into Brit at Sundance if all we’re going by is pics with cast mates. Pretty positive that he’s simply affectionate with his friends. I saw “The East” at SXSW – he shows his backside while getting out of a bathtub and there may or may not be a quick flash of Skarscrotch. He bends down to talk to Brit’s character during a group bathing scene, but it went by too fast for me or my friends to tell what we actually saw, if anything at all. Like people have said, it’s PG-13. And the sex scene is much tamer than on TB.

    • Jackie says:

      Me, again. Sorry, just trying to fix a double post.

  46. telesma says:

    Going by the pictures, I’d say they’re in a rather loud social setting and he’s trying to tell her something and she’s leaning back to try to hear what he’s saying. I don’t read anything more than that into it.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      It looks that way to me, too. We’ve all been in noisy crowded bars where you had to lean close & get in someone’s face to say or to hear anything. Look how crowded that room is. I don’t think you can read their relationship status from these pics!

  47. MIaK says:

    I’d rather talk about the fact that he’s penetrating Brit Marling’s ear hole in that pic.

  48. Antidoll says:

    I refuse to believe that a) he’s dating her and b) they’re bearding for each other, he’s so hot in a im gonna F*** the hell outta you 50 shades of grey style <3 rawr

  49. Ashling says:

    I just think they are friends. They have not been very public about their friendship, so I do not believe it is for bearding purposes. I don’t think he’s gay. I think she is, though. The fact that he is physically affectionate in public with her tells me that they are not hitting it.
