Alexander Skarsgard nuzzles, kisses Ellen Page in San Francisco: seriously, it’s on!

No, seriously. Ellen Page and Alexander Skarsgard are TOGETHER. We can spin conspiracy theories all day long, but I really think they’re telling us that they are together. I know, many of you think she’s a lesbian. I think it’s possible she’s bisexual. At the very least, she got one look at the Skarsdong and decided that maybe she could totally be bisexual or Skarsexual. The photo evidence has been right in front of us for months, you just won’t believe it! Anyway, Ellen and Alex’s friend (and director of The East) Zal Batmanglij tweeted this photo over the weekend, posting it with the message “This reminds me of shooting. When we’d lie in the grass listening to Toby practice Rostam’s piano piece. #TheEast”. Ellen retweeted it with the message “Canadian tuxedo party”. Which is funny.

They’ve been dating for a year, and their romance seems to be going from strength to strength. And Alexander Skarsgard and Ellen Page looked more in love than ever as they took some time out from promoting their new movie, The East, over the weekend.

Cuddling up to each other as they kicked back in a San Francisco park, the Swedish actor could be seen planting a tender kiss on his girlfriend’s cheek as she reclined happily in his arms.

Smiling coyly as her 36-year-old beau wrapped his arm around her shoulder, the Juno star looked the absolute picture of contentment as she enjoyed some quality time with her man.

The intimate snap was shared on Twitter by The East director Zal Batmanglij, who accompanied the duo on their promotional trip to San Francisco.

Writing alongside the adorable picture, he wrote: ‘This reminds me of shooting. When we’d lie in the grass listening to Toby practice Rostam’s piano piece. #TheEast.’

It was a flying visit for the couple, with Ellen and Alexander spotted arriving back at Los Angeles International Airport on Sunday after completing their duties.

The couple have been dating for a year and were first seen on a date at the Stanley Cup final in June 2012 after meeting on the set of The East the previous winter.

[From The Mail]

I would love to spend the weekend in San Francisco with Alex Skarsgard. Maybe drive to Sonoma, get some wine. Stay at a nice bed and breakfast and we’d break that g—damn headboard. Of course, Alex wouldn’t be into me. He’s into really small women. He likes ‘em petite. And I think Ellen is a much better choice for him than Kate Bosworth.

    They’re probably visiting SF so she can introduce him to her girlfriend. Sorry-these two are not dating.

    • Lucy says:

      They look like they have the brother/sister type of relationship going on nothing sexual whatsoever

      • Erinn says:

        I don’t know. The picture where she’s clutching onto his jacket – I don’t feel like that’s something you do with a friend or sibling figure.

        I assumed she was a lesbian, but maybe she’s bisexual.

      • emmie_a says:

        I think her clutching his jacket is a nervous or anxious behavior (which can happen on a red carpet) so they don’t have to be together for her to do that.

      • Rachel says:

        His arm is draped across her breasts in the first pic. How is that not sexual? My brothers would never hug me like that. Maybe dating a demented famewhore convinced him to go for more substance.

      • lisa says:

        i think his hand is in an awkward place because she is so short

        they have a “to catch a predator” vibe to me

    • melina says:

      Why is it so hard to believe? Ellen never declared that she is a lesbian!! They could totally be together and in fact they look really cute!

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I agree, it is possible. Even if she did declare herself a lesbian, it is still possible. A person’s sexuality isn’t carved in stone.

        They seem to have a strong connection. Whether that is sexual too, I don’t know and I don’t really care. Their biz-nas!

      • Liv says:

        Last thing I heard was that she has a girlfriend. And do you really think she would publicly declare that she’s a lesbian? It doesn’t work for gay actors and it also doesn’t work for gay actresses. (Jodie Foster doesn’t count!)

    • Liv says:

      I agree, they probably want to promote their film. He published the photo, didn’t he? He would never do this if they were seriously in love.

      • Decloo says:

        Also, the fact that the Director of the film tweeted the photo makes it look like a possible publicity stunt.

      • amanda. says:

        That’s the only vibe I’m getting from the pictures and all the gossip, publicity stunt.

      • lucy2 says:

        Director took it and tweeted it, and Ellen re-tweeted. They were all doing a Q&A for the movie in SF over the weekend.

      • StaCat1 says:

        If it’s true…fine- good for them..BUT the timing and circumstances SCREAM publicity.
        They’ve “been dating a year” and NOW the director of their movie that they are promoting tweets a lovey-dovey picture…

        hmmm….seems WAAAAYYY too set-up. And these are two supposedly very private people….just feels manipulated.

      • Jamteezy says:

        Yeah, I’m not buying it. I know someone from the gay scene in her hometown and she says that over there, she has been with everybody. It is quite common knowledge on the Canadian gay scene that she is out and just keeps it quiet.

      • Camille (TheOriginal) says:

        I agree with the above^: PR.

        This film looks good but it really needs the promotion.

    • Mia says:

      @Happymom- LMAO! I completely agree! Ellen is as straight as Michelle Rodriguez.

    • Lisa says:

      Maybe, but they are also here promoting their film, The East. I live in the East Bay, and one of the movie theaters in town had a live Q & A with them and the director on Saturday afternoon.

  2. Lynn says:

    Ugh no they’re NOT TOGETHER AT ALL. Why are people so dense. They’re just friends. He would NEVER take a picture like that with a girlfriend and put it on twitter. This is so f’n stupid. I guess I sound like a crazy fangirl but I’m not. I can’t believe how ridiculous this has gotten. You do realize men and women can be just friends who work together, right?

    • MrsB says:

      I don’t know. I’m not saying they are together by any means, but that is a pretty intimate pose for friends. Growing up, I was one of those girls who had almost all guy friends and I never remember doing anything like that…

    • Veronica says:

      @ Lynn, you’re not crazy and you don’t sound crazy. I’m with you: totally perplexed by the fact that people actually believe this. And not only believe it irrationally but apparently NEED to believe it.

      And by the way, when I say “believe it irrationally” I’m not saying the believers are irrational people. I’m saying their reasons for believing it are irrational. Photo evidence?? Of Alex behaving with Ellen exactly the same way he behaves with Brit Marling and Kristin Bauer? Photo evidence because two friends are showing affection for one another? Photo evidence because they went to a game together a year ago? Photo evidence even though Alex has never, ever flaunted an actual verified girlfriend the way the believers claim he’s flaunting his “GF” Ellen.

    • Roo says:

      Co-sign this. *Sigh. Kaiser what is up? Alex would NEVER be so public with someone he was seeing. And agree with most others: Ellen is WAY more interesting and worthy then bosworth. That was just all kinds of awkward to watch.

    • Bobbiesue says:

      they remind me of my male friendships when I didn’t have a relationship going on. They’re close; whether they’re f**king is an entirely different story.
      Like, my theater buds…we’re overly expressive.

  3. Jenna says:

    You’re officially turning into one of the cray cray fangirls that ships people together that will never/probably will never be together. Seriously though, he does this with almost all of his friends. He takes pictures like these with the TB cast too. *sigh*

    And almost everyone is better than Bosworth. Come on, son!

    • Apples says:

      Please tell me that was a Psych reference!

      • Jenna says:

        *sucks teeth* Come on, son! LOL Yes, it twas! Glad I’m not the only ‘Psych-O’ on here! :D

      • Apples says:

        Ha ha ha! Nice!

        Somebody got me hooked, now I have returned the favor to friends and cousins many times over. I love all the random silliness and 80′s/90′s references. I always tell people to start with the pilot and give it a couple of episodes.

    • FirstTime says:

      Didn’t he pick a women up in New York about 2 weeks ago? So he cheated on her?

      I agree about almost everyone is better than Bosworth. Did you see them on the motorbike?

      • Jenna says:

        I think that was the rumor going on.

        And I DID she her on the motorcycle! Weren’t those EXCLUSIVE pics one of the highlights of your day? lol :P

    • Hello says:

      It would be nice to see him with someone thou.

      I take it he has just been whoring it up since he broke up with bos 3 years ago?

    • Cheese says:

      Comic Con is soon, doesn’t he hook up with women when there? His behaviour at Comic Con will tell us more.

      And if she shows up to the True Blood premire.

  4. tory says:

    Does anybody else think she looks like his mom?

    • Thora says:

      No. Quite the opposite in fact. The height difference makes her look like a kid. But it’s good to see her in the press again. I was begining wonder where she was. I’ve always found her quite likable.

  5. RocketMerry says:

    Look, I don’t really care ’cause he’s not tall and dark-haired and sweet/dreamy-eyed, but isn’t she a lesbian? Or is she bi? Or maybe they’re just friends who are very playful with each other…?
    I’m confused. That happens a lot lately.

    • marie says:

      ha, see I don’t know. they would be cute together but I just don’t know. I think I’m gonna need to see some pr0nographic evidence of them bumpin pretties (there’s nothing about him ugly) or it didn’t happen.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I don’t see the sexy between these two at all. *IF* she’s gay then it would be a lot easier to have flirtatious gestures with a dude when you both know that there’s no chance of funny business occurring.

  6. Elle Kaye says:

    They make an adorable couple, and would have beautiful babies. If this is true, I hope it works out.

  7. DeltaJuliet says:

    She’s so tiny and young looking and he’s SO tall….it looks weird.

    Or maybe I’m just jealous lol

    • Veronica says:

      It’s not jealousy. It IS weird. And I’m kinda let down by people saying this is so cute if they’re a couple. Whatever, to each his own.

      • Badirene says:

        Meh I am 5ft 4 and the hubs is 6ft and a bit, guess we are “weird” and letting you down Veronica. Sorry for disappointing you so much by being different heights.

      • Veronica says:

        Well, Baderine, you certainly chose to see YOURSELF in my comment despite the fact that I was clearly referring to a woman who is 5 feet and a man who is 6’4″. That is not even close to you and your husband, whom I wouldn’t find odd at all. You might want to check yourself next time before getting so defensive of another’s comment.

      • Badirene says:

        Yes clearly I am the one with the problem, excuse me while my eyes roll all the way out of my head. You just continue being “let down”.

      • Colu says:

        I am 5′ tall and my husband is 6′ 3″. He’s only 3 years older than me, but looks older. Sometimes I feel like I look childish next to him, but in the 8 years we’ve been together we’ve never been mistaken as father/daughter.

      • minime says:

        +1000 @Badirene

        if people’s judgment on other people’s relationships is based on their height difference, then that is extremely disappointing!

        Independently of believing or not that they are together, what is obviously questionable since none of us really knows what happens in their lives, to support such an opinion based in physical differences is just hilarious.

      • Veronica says:

        Oh my goodness, people who feel the need to get defensive and reveal personal information about themselves and their spouses to a total stranger on a celebrity gossip blog because you chose to see your own self in that person’s comment about two celebrities.

        *sigh* I can’t even.

      • Brookie says:

        @ Veronica – Maybe it’s because your comment was that is “weird” for there to be such a big difference in heights between people in relationships, and your disappointment when others do not share your opinion. Which touched a nerve in people because your original post made a broad assumption, and a pretty negative one at that. Maybe you should have been more specific on who is weird and why it’s so disappointing to you when people think it’s cute. Maybe it wouldn’t have been so offensive.

        Maybe, or maybe you’re always negative. From your responses, it sounds like the latter. Heights on an anonymous blog isn’t that personal, really. I’m 5-8, and I wear a 38DDD bra. Tell me you can hunt me down by that info. Please.

      • Veronica says:

        @ Brookie

        Please try to process this so I don’t have to keep repeating it:

        I WAS REFERRING TO ELLEN AND ALEX. Never did I mention other people.

        It is the CHOICE of any reader to project themselves onto this innocuous comment to the point of revealing personal info about themselves to a total stranger on a gossip blog. If you or any other reader CHOOSES to project yourself onto others’ comments that’s your issue not ours.

        Now, stop behaving like bullies and move on.

      • amanda. says:

        @veronica – Why you think they look weird then? You agreed with the height difference or maybe because she looks younger than him, I suppose you think everyone with a greater height difference looks weird as well.

    • DeltaJuliet says:

      Wow this took a strange turn for the worse.

    • Rice says:

      It does look weird in photos. But then again my hubby of 8 years is 6ft 2in and I’m 5ft 4in. I’ve always loved tall men. While SkarPage look cute, it does look a little weird.

  8. Ai says:

    I think I like them together. You can clearly see the chemistry. Why do some ppl think she’s a lesbian? By dating her, he went up a few notches for me.

    • Rice says:

      I had no idea she was gay. I could have sworn she had a boyfriend some time after Juno.

  9. GeeMoney says:

    Sooo fake. Everyone knows that Ellen Page is a lesbian. Don’t know about Skarsgard, though.

  10. Amelia says:

    Unfortunately, this isn’t concrete evidence that they are together.
    Boo. I don’t generally ship couples, but there’s something about these two that I find really endearing.

    • Annie says:

      Me too. I’d like them together.

    • truthSF says:

      Me three Amelia, I like them together.

      As far as people saying she’s gay, maybe she is. And maybe she’s doing what most straight people do, and is “experimenting” with the opposite sex. Or maybe she’s bisexual. No one really knows.

      Alicia keys was strongly rumored to be gay for years, and now she’s married to a man, with a kid… and is now labeled a home wrecker.

      We can’t predict what anyone will do or be in life.

    • gogoGorilla says:

      I feel so hip just because I know what “ship” means. LOL

      I think she’s a terrific actress, but she looks so young standing next to him, maybe that’s why it strikes me as odd. Also, I just love the idea of him with someone like Charlize, LOL.

  11. Mirella says:

    Anyone would be better than Bosworth. In this case, Alex & Ellen are just friends. He’s like this with all of his cast members.

  12. Deb says:

    Another fauxmance to sell a movie

    • Lynn says:

      No it’s not since THEY’RE NOT TOGETHER. They’re not even pretending to be together. Ugh so annoying.

    • emmie_a says:

      That’s what I’m thinking. This happens when there’s a movie to promote. Twilight comes to mind. How convenient that those two are history now that the movies are over.

  13. Annie says:

    Gaaah that picture is so cute!!

    But Ellen is gay. 100%. No grey area there. I hope this isn’t a PR thing to force her into the closet because she’s almost A-list. That would suck.

    • steph says:

      How do you know that shes gay? Are there comprising pics with a chick? A rumored girlfriend? And how do you know shes not bisexual? I am genuinely curious.

      • Veronica says:

        It’s funny: the same people that declare “how do you know she’s gay? there’s no evidence!!! she’s never said she is!!” are often the very same people who INSIST that Alex and Ellen are a couple and that these photos TOTALLY ARE HARDCORE EVIDENCE AND YOU DENIERS JUST CAN’T ACCEPT IT.

        Yeah, some demand evidence for what you believe on the one hand, but on the other hand believe they have all the evidence they need to believe what they want.

      • Erinn says:

        These photos are more evidence to support them as a couple, or even a casual couple than there is to support her being a lesbian.

      • steph says:


        Take a long deep breathe then repeat after me “I will not trawl gossip sites picking meaningless fights with complete strangers”. Fangurl used to refer to the sweet devoted fans who sent their idol baked goods and knitted scarfs. Now adays fangurls are………..well, they are like Veronica.

        Anyway if you read my other comment posted in a thread further down over four hours ago, you know I dont care for Alex and think Ellen vould do better (whatever gender). So its fangurl cray-cray that you even accuse me of being invested in them as a couple.

        In that post I also ask if Alex rumors are credible FYI. I have heard for years that he prefers to play with boys but will in a pinch settle for a girl. In otherwords bi with a preference for men. So I acknowledged they could be bearding but would like evidence outside of just online rumors.

      • BeesKness says:

        Steph, fangirl totally equals crazy these days! I could totally believe Ellen is gay, but I also would like to know why people believe that so strongly. What evidence is out there that Ellen is a lesbian? Same with Bradley Cooper, I see people on here say with certainty that he is gay. He could very possibly be gay, but some blind gossip items and rumors do not prove a person is gay.

    • melina says:

      Annie are you her ex? And if you are did she tell you that she only does women? Just curious…

      • Bobbiesue says:

        Believe it or not, “stars” were regular people, once upon a time, who lots of other people know. She’s from NS and many people know her and know whether she’s had a girlfriend at one time. It’s not rocket science.

      • Hollz says:

        having a girlfriend “at one time” does not make one gay…

    • Emily says:

      She could make a hardcore girl on girl sex tape and it still doesn’t mean she’s gay. Peoples actions do not necessarily mesh with their sexuality you know?

      Only she knows who she is and isn’t attracted to – your speculating is childish and unnecessary.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      She could be a card-carrying lesbian, and that still doesn’t mean that she could never have a relationship with a guy.

      A person’s sexuality isn’t carved in stone. I am not saying these two are together or not, don’t really care, but I find the idea of someone being “100% lesbian” to be completely laughable. Humans aren’t 100% anything.

  14. mimifarrow says:

    Skarsexual made me LOL.

  15. Sassenach says:

    I don’t believe this for a second.

  16. Chrissy says:

    I may be one of the few but I’m TOTALLY into them together! Alex is enough HOT for the both of them.

  17. Kim1 says:

    If they are a couple than they are pimping their relationship with this intimate pic Why?

  18. UsedToBeLulu says:

    Nah. She doesn’t look ‘into’ him at all. Not buying it.

  19. sheila says:

    Alex and Ellen? AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. sorry.

  20. Mary says:

    Wow, they just look … wrong. By the way, what happened to Ellen Page’s career? I haven’t seen her do the rounds since Whip It (which sucked)

    • Angie says:

      she was in inception w/ leo di caprio and joseph gordan lovett since then, and this the east film w/ skarsgard, which i suspect will do all right. i think i also heard something about her being in the x men film coming up. she’s doing all right. i think she actually does a lot of hipster, indie shit no one has heard of on the side, tbh. kinda what KStew wishes she was doing.

    • Irishae says:

      Hey, I actually liked Whip It :( . Which is odd because I can’t stand to watch her in anything else. Although I hear she’s a pretty cool person in “real life.”

  21. Tania says:

    I think he’s just a touchy feely, affectionate kind of guy and she’s just all kinds of awesome. Of course he would hug her! I don’t think this is anything beyond friendship.

    • Veronica says:

      Exactly. And how come no one notices that she’s almost never reciprocating in these photos? He’s being touchy and she’s just … well, she’s just there.

    • Ginger says:

      Completely agree. I’ve known plenty of actors and they tend to be very touchy feely people so their behavior doesn’t surprise me.

  22. JenD says:

    Before I looked at the picture, my reaction to the headline was “but was she nuzzling and kissing back?” Of course the answer was no. It seems like he’s just very friendly and she lets him be.

  23. steph says:

    I love Ellen Page. Never got the fuss over Askars. Hes pale and lanky and the receeding hairline and that underwhelming naked flat booty I saw on Tru Blood and just totally over rated.

    Having said that I think they look cute together. He gets points for not chasing after some generic starlet or brainless lingerie model. By the way, are there any credible rumors that hes gay? Maybe they are bearding for each other? Whatever. Ellen>Alex

  24. Tessa says:

    I think they are BFF’s who are taking the piss out on all of the people who think they’re dating. Free publicity for their movie. Everyone is talking about it, eh? Yep and yep.

  25. Jayne2300 says:

    Hahaha the idea of them as a couple is so stupid I laughed out loud.Alex has been photographed meeting secretly at the Beverly Hills hotel with some tall skinny,blonde(or 2 blondes) for weeks.And if Ellen were his girlfriend he wouldn’t even touch her in public,that’s how private he is.This is all to make his female fans think that he would actually go for a plain short brunette and to sell that awful cheap looking indie movie he did with her.Worst fake couple publicity stunt in history.

  26. lmb says:

    good god some people in this thread have some unhealthy obsession with making sure we know THEY ARE NOT TOGETHER.

    for those saying they have a “brother/sister” relationship…um unless you’re a lannister, that’s not a normal brother/sister relationship. whatever they are, it does not look strictly platonic to me.

    • Amelia says:

      Points for the GoT reference :)

    • minime says:

      ahah just to say that I love your Lanister reference :)

    • Badirene says:

      Ha at the Lannister mention, love it.

    • Samigirl says:

      Ahahahahaha @ GoT. Awesome.

    • Little Darling says:

      For the win! Awesome GoT reference!!

    • jamie says:

      THANK YOU. I could care less if these two are a couple but good god, some of the people commenting on here are coming unglued at the very thought. It’s bizarre.

      • bluhare says:

        Agree. I thought that stuff was on other threads, but when I saw this one had over 200 posts I had to come see what had blown up and it’s all about whether they’re a couple and how tall they are????

      • gogoGorilla says:

        It’s very strange, right? I think we’ve been invaded by stans.

        I like them separately but they seem awkward together. I loved her in Juno.

  27. Annie says:

    He’s obviously dating her baseball cap. Whispering to it “You’re Mine” while he noses it off her head, grabs it and jumps up triumphantly yelling “Mine, Mine, Miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine”.

    • Shannon1972 says:

      Lol!! This visual actually made me laugh. :D
      I just picture him prancercizing around the park, waving her hat and singing “It’s miiiiiine”!

      Good lord…it’s definitely Monday and I obviously need more coffee.

      • Annie says:

        I could totally see it. Waving it above his 6’4″ head and daring her to come and get it…

      • Shannon1972 says:

        Annie, I am still laughing over this visual. I don’t know why it struck me so funny! I swear, I was driving home from the supermarket and it popped into my head, and I actually started chuckling again.
        Poor little Ellen, jumping futilely while trying to grab her hat back. “GIVE. IT. BAAACK!!”
        Thanks for making my day. :)

      • Tiffany :) says:

        You KNOW he’d try that taller person trick where they put their hand on the short person’s head while the little one swings their arms, never making contact.

    • UsedToBeLulu says:

      LOL! Yeah, I was struck by that too. He’s not kissing her cheek, he is nuzzling her cap. And how his arm is positioned is irrelevant IMO. Aren’t Swedes known for being touchy feely?

    • I Choose Me says:

      Hahahahaha. Best comment on this thread.

  28. minime says:

    Skarsgard is my major crush and Ellen Page is my girl crush so yes, I think they would really look good together…also it would bring me a bit more of love for him to see that he doesn’t go only for apparently vapid women.

  29. Talie says:

    Friends. If they were dating, it’s not her style to be so overt.

  30. TOPgirl says:

    And it’s on for now…..until it ends. Nothing last forever in Hollywood.

  31. RHONYC says:

    for the love of Pride Month…the DENIAL on this thread is HILARIOUS!!!

    who gives a damn about their presumed sexuality.

    if its true, good on them.

    i ain’t a hater, i’m an appreciater!

    ride that Viking for us all Juno! hee-ha! ;-)

    • Badirene says:

      Let me add a “giddy up!” to your “hee ha”

    • Little Darling says:

      Right? The posters are getting a bit up in arms over this…it’s *almost* like reading a leeAnn thread!

      I hope she’s a Skarsoholic…drink up that tall glass of yum sister!!

      They obviously have a close relationship…does it matter if its sexual? I’d LOVE to be draped in his limbs.

      Love em both!

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        “The posters are getting a bit up in arms over this”

        Yeah people are getting WAAAAAAY too worked up, like Twi-hard level.

      • BeesKness says:

        Up in arms indeed. I will never, ever understand stans/fangirls/obsessed fans of ANY celebrity. I like gossip and all, but I don’t get emotionally invested in these people I don’t know and most likely will never meet! If they’re dating… awesome, if they are just good friends and maybe one or both happens to be gay… also awesome!

    • Lee says:

      I will admit I’m doubtful they’re a real couple since neither one of them has ever seemed interested in having the public eye on their personal relationships in the way they are allowing now, but I do agree that the need to INSIST they are NOT a couple is a little strange.

      That being said, it would actually make me a little miffed if they were a real couple if only because Ellen has always kept her relationships hidden and if she was willing to put her hetero relationships out there but wanted to hide the same-sex ones, that would be pretty disappointing. As I stated in a previous post on this pairing, I think she pretty much came out as queer on SNL years ago so I tend to take for granted that there have been relationships in the past that she has gone to some lengths to keep private.

      • jaye says:

        She did? Did she just announce she was gay on SNL out of the blue?

      • Lee says:

        no, I meant I interpreted the final sketch of her episode, where they pretty obviously addressed the rumors, as her coming out as not entirely straight. It wasn’t explicit and obviously, it was in a fictional sketch, but the timing and content of it lead me to believe it was as much of a “coming out” as she was interested in doing.

    • Lucinda says:

      Exactly! I don’t get all the fuss. I think they look cute together and the picture evidence for the past year supports a low-key relationship.

    • jamie says:

      I didn’t give two figs about them until I started reading all the comments…now I ship them hard.

    • littlestar says:

      Lol I’m having a good time reading this thread! Many chuckles over here. Is she a lesbian? Are they dating? Are they brother and sister? Lmao.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      “ride that Viking for us all Juno!”


  32. Elle Kaye says:

    I’m curious as to why people believe she is gay? Yes, a guy “outed” her in 2011 and there were pictures of her kissing a girl, but what does that prove? Apparently she has had relationships with men and women both, so this doesn’t define her as a lesbian. I have yet to hear her say she is in fact a lesbian, so how is it that people are so absolutely certain she is?

    Amber Heard was also a “lesbian” until Johnnie Depp.

    • Kim1 says:

      What man has she had a romantic relationship with,just curious?

    • Lee says:

      Amber Heard has never stated she was a lesbian. This bugs me so much since it contributes to the erasure of bisexual women and perpetuates the myth that gay women can be “turned” by the right man. When she first came out, Heard explicitly stated that she had successful relationships with BOTH men and women and she chooses not to define her sexuality.

    • Elle Kaye says:

      Thus the “lesbian” in quotations. People were calling her a lesbian when in fact she was very much into men. But it was more titillating for the tabloids to think of her as a lesbian who was “turned” by Depp.

      This is why I’m not buying that Page is a lesbian. And even if she is, it isn’t anyone’s business to be throwing it around. If she has something to share, she will. Until then, people should leave her sexual preferences alone.

  33. The Original Mia says:

    I think they are cute together. Who knows what their relationship is. What is known is that they’ve been fast friends since filming last year.

    • claire says:

      I’m with you on this. Not sure at all what’s going on between them, but they sure do make cute cuddly friends!

  34. grabbyhands says:

    Considering that she’s playing for the other team combined with the fact that he has NEVER pimped out his relationships (did everyone forget Frowngate when he was with Bosworth?), I think people need to stop trying to make this a thing. He has always been super affectionate with his friends, and while I think they would be super adorbs as a couple, that’s not what this is.

    • lmb says:

      maybe he was just frowning b/c he was with bosworth…that’s enough to give anyone the sads.

      • Veronica says:

        Yeah, even though he could have left. But didn’t. For 2 years. And frowning the whole time–or at least the last 3/4 of the relationship. I’m telling ya, this guy loves screwed up women and dysfunctional romantic relationships.

    • Melma says:

      @Veronica, well he doesn’t love you. Go home crazy.

  35. GiGi says:

    I really love them both… but I don’t think they’re banging, lol!

    In fact, the public photo is the thing that clinched it for me that they’re *not* dating. They’re both phobic of the famewhorey relationship thing *side-eye the Bos* so it doesn’t make sense that if they really were together, they’d put out a photo like that.

    IDK – I’ve had mostly guy friends and some I’m still incredibly close with – like family, really. Since I’m married, I don’t hang out on their laps, but I’ve seen plenty of very close platonic friends have touchy-feely relationships.

  36. SleepyJane says:

    They are just trolling everyone. Good for them. I think they’re great friends, and enjoy toying with the media because of how ridiculous the circus can be.

  37. Samigirl says:

    LOL! Yes, I too, am a Skarsexual. I like it. I like her. I LOOOOVE him. I approve.

    Also, he likes brunettes? Good to know ;-)

    • lori says:

      He has said in interviews before that he is into brunettes…..also thin tiny women. I read a translated from Swedish interview somewhere. I’m kinda digging this possible hook up. If all they have in common is hockey and beer that might be enough. And it does make up for the Bosworth business.

      • Veronica says:

        Yeah, except Alex has never said that. He’s been open that he has no preference and has dated both blondes and brunettes and short and very tall. The one thing he DOES seem to prefer is that they be super skinny. He’s never wavered on that.

      • Erinn says:

        Sweeet. I’m a 5’2″ Nova Scotian Brunette – like Ellen page. DOES THIS MEAN I HAVE A CHANCE WITH THE SKARSGARD? haha

  38. PinkG says:

    I still can’t believe she was Treena in Trailer Park Boys. They grow up so fast. :-)

    • ScrewStewrat99 says:

      Hahahaha yes!!! I flipped my shiz when I was watching TPB and realized Laheys little girl was Juno! It took me forever to make the connection. I can’t wait until the new movie is released! :)

  39. Anna says:

    I think they are all sorts of adorbs together. She kind of annoys me a bit on her own, and he completely disinterests me on _his_ own, but together I am all about this couple and want to see more!

    Also, ASkars gets his own ‘sexuality’ before Fassdong? Seems wrong. #Fassexual.

  40. lucy2 says:

    I like them both and would actually like them as a couple, but I just don’t think it’s happening. I think they’re buddies who are affectionate.
    If they were together, they would be trying to hide it more, they’re both very private.

  41. mkyarwood says:

    Beardy Weirdy!

  42. C'mon says:

    How can they be together for a year when just a few weeks ago in NYC when him and Ellen where there for the East he was seen with women around him then a blonde at a bar and then he brought her back to his hotel. They are just friends or at best they shag but NOT bf and gf

  43. littlemissnaughty says:

    Um, yeah …. sure. They’re dating. I think not. Or maybe they are, who the hell knows. But these pics are not evidence of a romantic relationship, if that were true he’d have been dating Michael MacMillan for years now. Come on.

    Could it be true? I don’t care but this really proves nothing. Also, she seems to be an incredibly private person, why would she suddenly flaunt it like that? And we’ve all witnessed how he treats a girlfriend. Posing with her? Cuddling in public? No.

  44. CC says:

    I have no idea if they’re dating but he could do a lot worse than Ellen (even for possible PR-dating). Wait, he did a lot worse than Ellen while trying to “promote” that POS called straw dogs. So, even if this might ultimately be another thing to give them publicity, it won’t make me cringe, so, bravo.

    • Domestic_diva says:

      Omg that straw dawgs movie totally traumatized me!!! It was horrible and disgusting I was just too done with it

  45. sshhh says:

    Alex is ghey

  46. mel says:

    They absolutely look together!! Adorable!

  47. vv says:

    I hope it’s true but considering his laid back upbringing and the fact she is kind of ‘kiddish’ and cute, it seems likely they are just really affectionate friends.

    Then again the quiet, cute types I find are usually some of the biggest horndogs so who knows. I kind hope that’s the case haha.

  48. drea says:

    Sorry, but I have to agree with all the others who don’t think these two are dating. He has similar pictures with a few other female co-stars from the past, I guess he’s just a touchy-feely kind of guy.

    Besides, don’t we also have “photographic evidence” of him picking up random girls and actually going home with one? All while his supposed relationship with Ellen has been “going from strength to strength.” I guess the writer of that article missed those pap photos (hey, it’s the Mail).

    • C'mon says:

      Yeah his GF of a year is in NYC with him the night of their premiere but then he goes out of his way to let other women feel him up then go to a bar with one and left to HIS HOTEL with one. Yeah these two are dating. I DON”T THINK SO!

      • Hello says:

        It makes him look like a cheater.

        I wouldn’t stand for that. Looking and acting like your single when your with someone.

  49. Hipocricy says:

    He looks like he brought his 16 years old daughter or young sister with him.

    She really looks like an underage. lol

  50. C'mon says:

    there were pics of them at the airport yesterday arriving together and then going their separate ways. where are those pics??

  51. truthful says:

    not buying this one at all, babe, nope

    unless she needs a beard or something.

  52. ctkat1 says:

    I have no idea if Ellen Page is gay or bisexual- what I do know is that about two years ago, she was spending a LOT of time with Clea Duvall- they were photographed together, out and about, many times. And Clea Duvall is gay/bisexual- there are pics of her making out with a girlfriend in a park.

    I can believe that Ellen and Skarsgard might be dating, because I believe that sexuality is fluid and people are attracted across gender lines.

    The weird thing about this situation isn’t Ellen’s sexuality, it’s the fact that Skarsgard would be okay with a “nuzzling girlfriend” picture being posted on twitter. He’s never done that before. It may be as simple as he was embarrassed about Bosworth, and he isn’t embarrassed about Page (which I GET), but still… this seems like a blatant grab for attention for the film.

    They were seen out together a year ago (when they were filming/just finished filming) and now they’re seen together as they are promoting the film…that’s not a relationship, that’s friends spending time together for work.

  53. shannon says:

    Sorry, ladies, I’m putting my money on “they’re banging.” I have two brothers I love dearly and many close male friends. You’d never catch a picture of me with one of them snuggling me and kissing my head … that’s not a brother/sister or best buddies pic. Honestly, I think they look adorable together.

    • Kim1 says:

      Are you promoting a film?

      • shannon says:

        Aw, hun … no, I’m not. But I can’t imagine anything I’d want to promote enough to let my brother’s hand roll up on my thigh or right under my boob. I’m sorry that you’re so invested in these people not being a couple. Don’t worry, it probably won’t last long and Alex will be yours at last (mad fits of laughter, coughing, more laughing).

    • trish says:

      There’s multiple photos out there of him kissing friends on the head, both male AND female.
      Why this one is singled out as significant I don’t know…

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      Um, nobody is saying they’re behaving like actual siblings. The hell? Of course not. So that comparison, the “well my brother and I NEVER” doesn’t work at all. And I have had a guy friend or two kiss my head. Or put their arm around me affectionately. It’s really not a big deal. Maybe it’s different in America? I don’t know. But a smooch and a hug does not a romantic relationship make. It might. But it’s not proof or even a big deal.

  54. Adrien says:

    They look awkward but not as awkward as Hayden Panettiere and her wrestler boyfriend or Mary Kate Olsen and her man.

  55. nhi says:

    so what would it take to convince some of you guys :) ? a sex tape? hahahah

    seriously, i think they are cuteeeeeeeeeee together and i love them!

  56. Londongal says:

    It’s not so much the height thing (although at 5″11, short bitches, step AWAY from the tall crumpet!) but surely logistically, the Skarsdong would ‘break’ her? She’s *so* tiny! Amd she looks terribly young. I’ll refuse to believe they’re doing the ‘no pants dance’ unless I see them getting off in a photo.

  57. ladies says:

    she likes the ladies, ladies but of course she could be bi

  58. Ginger says:

    Skarsexual! That’s awesome.

  59. maranda says:

    I like them both and I think it would be great for Alex to date someone of substance. I’d rather he not turn into Leo Decaprio or Adam Levine who only date models. But that being said, this reminds we of the “Gerard Butler and Jennifer Anniston are dating” thing that happened a while ago which seemed clearly to be a rumor started just to promote their movie.

  60. Birdie says:

    They are clearly together. But I would be in denial, too, if pics of Cumberbatch and some chick appear, so I let you ladies the illusion. Yeah, obiously just friends.

  61. drdoolittling says:

    As someone who has literally never seen either of these two in anything, I believe it. Completely objective yet completely naive about this particular pairing.

    Honest question: If any other couple sent out these pics, wouldn’t that be confirmation of a relationship? Why is this one different; I may just be missing something.

  62. Mayday says:


    • ElleGin says:

      I agree!! Some of my idols date such losers!! These two seem unlikely but I think they actually would work well. They’re both passionate and serious about their work, and neither of them appear to be fame whores.

  63. Thinker says:

    Bisexuality is really throwing the celebrity gossip world into a loop! First that cacophony with Depp and Heard, now this….

  64. Isa says:

    I don’t think I ever thought she was a lesbian. However I do find them to be an odd couple. But sometimes that’s what works!

  65. Kt says:

    What does “ship” mean? A commenter above said they don’t normally “ship” couples. I’m confused!

    • AmyLynne says:

      To ship two people is like saying you want them to be together. It’s shorthand for relationship.

      Ex: people ship Katniss and Peeta or Katniss and Gale. Harry and Ginny. Ron and Hermione.

      • Veronica says:

        Really?? I always thought it was short for worship bc I’ve seen it applied in more ways that just couples.

      • UsedToBeLulu says:

        Thank you! I feet stupid that I couldn’t figure it out. lol

  66. celebitchin' says:

    I’m thinking not because I think they’re just friends.

    The thought of them together actually creeps me out.
    She looks like she could be his little sister.

  67. Mauibound says:

    Personally I think the Skarrs is just stirring up the twitterverse a bit

  68. Hollz says:

    I’ve never clicked on a Skarsgard story before….and I don’t think I will again.
    I adore Ellen Page, and the amount of venom pouring out of some people on here is ridiculous. I know it’s CeleBITCHY, but damn guys!
    Based on these photos I’d say they are a couple.
    A quick google search tells me she might be bisexual. The evidence is this is her kissing Drew Barrymore – who is married to a man with a kid herself! Or a commenter who had a friend that went to high school with her. Doesn’t everyone experiment in high school?

    I don’t particularly care if she’s gay straight or bi….You zealots that are sure she’s gay are never going to be convinced she’s anything but gay, and she doesn’t seem the type to comment so it’s not like we are going to know.

    • Domestic_diva says:

      +1 folks are soo passionate at even the thought if them together I’m kinda worried about a few of them like maybe they’re sitting in their closets/ skarrsgard shrines making Ellen vodoo dolls right now lol

    • LV says:

      I completely agree! Sexuality is so personal – how do these people really know anyway?

  69. Domestic_diva says:

    I like them so much together I’m mean yes I’m jealous but if she even remotely has the sense of humor Juno had i real life I can forgive my white husband for cheating because I totally dig a chic with wit lol. As for the people that are like they can’t be together because he never publicizes his relationships…who are we to dictate what actions people take when they love someone is is si improbable that he adores her enough to want to be public?

  70. TheOriginalWaffle says:

    Some of you guys seem pretty protective of Skarsgard.

    They look adorable together! He has better taste than I thought (cough Bosworth cough). Never liked him until I saw him in _What Maisie Knew_.

  71. Miss M says:

    I like them together, but I don’t see the connection… I vote for friendship + pr for the movie+ dispel any unwanted rumors…

  72. Cam S says:

    I’m always suspicious when these private stars all of a sudden go public with another high profile celeb. Beard much?

    These two give me the creeps like Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko.

    Dlisted’s Michael K said it best when he said Ellen looks like she is tugging on his jacket begging for a princess pop from the ice cream truck.

  73. serena says:

    Awww I love them together, nice pair

  74. Alexa says:

    I’m not sure how old she is, but just looking at the pics – he looks more like her father than her lover. So saying that they are a romantic couple really feels sickening to me.

  75. Jules says:

    Eh, I’ll believe they’re dating if they confirm it—otherwise forget it. Also, photo assumption isn’t proof or fact.

  76. amanda says:

    I can understand why some people dont buy this as evidence. I’m a lesbian and I’m like this with my guy friends. One in particular would always cuddle on the couch with me or hold my hand. We liked being close to someone and it wasnt complicated because we both wanted to have sex with women haha. This stuff happens.

    • Just me says:

      straight people do the same and sometimes have sex together and sometimes don’t in fact these pics mean nothing

  77. Nev says:

    something is up with this.

  78. I Choose Me says:

    Don’t know if Ellen is gay or bi – she dated Ben Foster I believe. Doesn’t matter though, although I do think they would make a cute couple I’m not convinced they’re together for reasons already stated above: That Skarsgard is by all accounts very affectionate with his friends both male and female, and that he is not the type to flaunt his relationships. Witness his obvious annoyance with his ex Bosworth’s antics.

  79. Ginger says:

    They look like me and my ex husband as far as height goes. I came up to his shoulders. It was a pain! as for their dating/sexuality goes…human desire is rather fluid wether or not you chose to believe so…facts are facts.

  80. Hannah says:

    Love them both. Don’t think they are dating though.

  81. Emily C. says:

    I think Skarsgard has a lot of female friends with whom he has sex. Whether Ellen Page is one of them… well, I hope so, because I think they’re hot together.

    • Cheese says:

      Along with all the women who throw themselves at him.

      Or how he acted at Comic Con after breaking up with Kate.

  82. Irishae says:

    I like how this thread has over 200 comments of rabid speculation and I’m not being sarcastic. Just goes to show how much we lurve our viking. “NO HE’S NOT WITH HER SHE’S GAY!!” and “That’s not how my brother/second cousin/thrice removed uncle hugs me!!” Etc. :)

  83. moon says:

    The photo looks weird. Like they’re both trying not to laugh, and he’s kissing her baseball cap. Getting an inside joke/prank vibes from this thing…

  84. Isabella says:

    I don’t believe it is real for a second. It’s most definitely for their movie. And apparently their shtick works bc people think the pair are legit item and it gets them interested in the movie. So.. yeah, eh. To each his own.

  85. LahdidahBaby says:

    It’s a simple father-daughter college tour, babies! No big. ;-)

  86. Twez says:

    “Skarsexual” – hahahaha

  87. hmmm says:

    Doubt this relationship. Im smelling PR in the air. I was kind of hoping he was going to end up with Charlize. But she seems to be living happily in Spinsterville plus pushing 40.Skars will have to look elsewhere. How about a nice swedish girl?

  88. Ash says:

    I have no idea what to think. If this is indeed true my mind is BEYOND blown.

    The weirdest couple I may have ever heard of. I love both of them but this is on par with Julia Roberts/ Lyle Lovett strange lol

    That being said, I think I would love to see them married :)

  89. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    According to a ‘source’ they are just friends- was posted on People’s website:,,20707668,00.html?xid=rss-fullcontent

    • Mary says:

      they had to have known this would be the reaction especially after people already were speculating after the sports game, the airport pics and posing so closely on the red carpet. I didn’t think Ellen played these PR games that’s why i was so slow to dismiss a relationship at the start

  90. Alyce says:

    They are not a couple! She is a lesbian – I’d be willing to bet my L Card on it!

  91. Bridget says:

    You just used The Daily Mail as your source. Shame on you for believing anything they say. If you are really this gullible I have a bridge to sell you.

  92. Bridget says:

    You just used The Daily Mail as your source. Shame on you for believing anything they say.

  93. LostinSpace33 says:

    The best thing about this entire 200+ post thread is the term “Skarsexual”…sign me up for that club! :)

  94. Maritza says:

    Once they finish promoting their movie this “relationship” will be over too.

  95. Ashling says:

    I think they are just friends, but I wouldn’t hate it if they were together. After they went to the Stanley Cup together, she got those death threats mentioning him by name. So IF they have been dating since then, it would make sense to me why they never went out in public together.

  96. tjay says:

    Sweet couple, they look totally into each other. Good for her and good for him, they are both very attractive people. I lived in Sweden and the blonde men there love dark haired women.

    IMO They clearly are in heavy throes of the start of their relationship where every thing is hot and dreamy.
