Those cheeky, cheeky Swedes! And their crazy, clothes-hating ways. I don't know why Swedish people are so anti-garment -- or at least so incredibly comfortable without traditional garb -- or even if Sweden does, in fact, resemble some sort of IKEA-furnished nudist colony. All I know is, Alexander Skarsgard prefers to go naked and THAT'S GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME.
And good enough for you, too, I bet *wink wink*? Because if ASkars wasn't so hell bent on going bare, we might have missed out on the wonderful part of that terrible/wonderful Eric Northman scene from the True Blood finale.
Yeah, you know the one -- cause you replayed it 8 gazillion times in slow-mo, oh yeah you did! We're talking about the scene when Eric burst into flames (which does NOT mean he's dead!!) and stood up in the process WITH NO PANTS ON and you know what that means! Full. Frontal. Skarsgard.
But according to Stephen Moyer, that scene wasn't supposed to be quite so revealing:
"It was never intended that way ... It was never written to have him full frontal. Alex doesn't like wearing his 'sock' or the 'sack of destiny' as we call it ... It's the sack of destiny that covers everything. He doesn't like wearing those so he had one in his room that day [but] he was the one who chose not to wear it."
First of all, omg, they call it a "sack of destiny." And second of all, see why I'm thanking our lucky stars ASkars is Swedish?? He "chose not to wear" the sack!!
Are you happy Alexander Skarsgard chose not to wear his sack of destiny?
