Remember back when we told you about how Alexander Skarsgard and Meryl Streep would be co-starring in The Giver, a film version of the YA lit classic? And how, hey, wouldn't it be crazy if those two -- Skarsgard and Streep -- ended up being, like, a couple? Like, CRAY-ZAY!! Cause they'd obviously be way, way over the line into sunrise/sunset territory, but on the other hand, Skarsgard does have a thing for dating co-stars, so who knows, right? Well, WRONG. I completely take back everything I ever said supporting that theory, because now yet another female co-star has signed on for The Giver, and that female co-star is none other than Taylor Swift. OH MY HOLY GOD MAKE IT STOP.
Yes, Skarsgard fans, I'm incredibly sorry to report that Skarsgard and Swift (oh, and did I mention Katie Holmes?) will be spending lots of time together filming The Giver in South Africa, and just seeing the names "Alexander Skarsgard" and "Taylor Swift" in such close proximity is enough to send me into a panic. Why? Well, for a few reasons:
More from The Stir: Taylor Swift’s 6 Ex-Boyfriends & the Songs She Did (& Didn’t!) Write for Them
1. Taylor Swift is boy-crazy (and no, I don't mean that in a slut-shame-y way, but it does seem to be true and hello?! Who wouldn't go crazy for ASkars??).
2. Alexander Skarsgard has a history of hooking up with younger women and Taylor Swift, at 23, is 14 years his junior!
3. Taylor Swift annoys the living hell out of me.
So maybe that last reason isn't exactly a valid argument against a potential pairing, but it does happen to be true, and isn't honesty the best policy? What, am I supposed to lie to you people?? I've said it before (about Ellen Page) and I'll say it again (about Taylor Swift): I JUST DON'T LIKE TAYLOR SWIFT.
And there you have it. Please, please, ASkars, if you're reading this: Don't do it. Don't date Taylor Swift. Seriously, I'd rather see you with Katie Holmes. Do it for Suri, Alexander!! She needs a father figure!!
Do you think Alexander Skarsgard should date Taylor Swift?
