Looking good, Alexander Skarsgard! The actor made quite the entrance in San Francisco on August 3. Alexander showed up in drag for the red carpet premiere of his film, ‘Diary Of A Teenage Girl,’ and he looked amazing!
It’s unknown as to why Alexander Skarsgard, 38, decided to dress up in drag for the premiere of his film Diary Of A Teenage Girl, but does he really need a reason to do so? The actor surprised many people when he showed up in a beautiful floor length gown to his movie premiere in San Francisco, Calif. on August 3! See the pictures here.
Alexander looks a little bit like Neil Patrick Harris, 42, doesn’t he? It must be the makeup. The 38-year-old was dressed to the nines when he walked the red carpet at his movie premiere. Alexander wore a large, curly blonde wig with huge golden hoops and a long gown covered in golden sequins. His makeup was also pretty spot on as well! Alex had a perfect red color on lips and also sported oversized false eyelashes along with his flawless golden smokey eye. Go big or go home, right?
The valid question to ask after seeing the actor all dressed up is if his character is a transvestite or one that likes to dress up in drag in the movie. Although the answer is no to both of those, E! believes Alexander’s look is a homage to his co-star Joshua Grannell, a drag performer named Peaches Christ who plays a transvestite in the film. That’s a pretty good reason for the actor to dress in drag, but could he also making a point about gender inequality to the people of Hollywood?
Alexander Speaks Out Against Sexism In Hollywood
The 38-year-old opened up to the London Evening Standard on August 3 about the sexist problems in Hollywood. “Sexism is a big problem in Hollywood,” Alex said. “Boys can talk about sex and have sex in films and it’s cool but when girls do it they are just sluts. It’s so prudish and puritanical. Hollywood is difficult for women — people making films want super-hot, young girls, and then there are fewer great roles for women aged over 40.” The actor makes a pretty good point. It’s not a coincidence that he steps out in a dress after making this proclamation, right?
