Alexander Skarsgard spoke about the rumors of his supposed romance with Charlize Theron.
The 42-year-old star of Big Little Lies and the 43-year-old Oscar winner were linked for the first time in 2012, and now supposedly resumed their romance on the set of the movie Flarsky . But what is true in those speculations? Skarsgard talked about these rumors in the September issue of WSJ Magazine.
“It does not affect me, people can think what they want,” he said of the rumors. “It’s impossible to live in a vacuum, you listen, ‘Oh, I heard you’re going out with so-and-so.’ Sometimes you say, ‘Yes, I did.’ Sometimes it’s, ‘I never knew that person but give me his number.'” .
Skarsgard, who was recently linked to Camille Rowe , Harry Styles’ ex-girlfriend , also shared, “Hopefully one day I’ll settle down.”
The actor was in a relationship with British model Alexa Chung , but the duo ended in July 2017 after spending two years together. “Nobody cheated on anyone,” a source told E! News at the time. “It was a clean break that was caused by their busy schedules and distance, they really loved each other and they were very serious, they still respect each other.”
But, months later, the cameras caught Skarsgard and Chung together again.
While the actor decides to become serious, he focuses on his career. His role in Big Little Lies , as the abusive husband of the character of Nicole Kidman , left him an Emmy and a Golden Globe. Although his character dies at the end of the first season, the public could see him in the second season in flashbacks or as “A secret twin or a malignant zombie,” he joked with the publication. “We are taking a slightly different direction this season,” he said.
“I think the world is his oyster in terms of actor, he has only seen the surface of what he can actually do,” Kidman told WSJ .
Meryl Streep joined the cast of the series for its new season, playing the role of the mother of his character. “I have not worked with her yet, but I’m excited,” said Skarsgard.
The next project in which we can see Skarsgard is in the movie Hold the Dark , which will hit select theaters and Netflix.
