GQ Style: Recently you did a video interview with the Los Angeles Times - and you wore eyeliner. Do you do that often?
Alexander Skarsgard: Ha! No, that was only for the shoot. The photographer wanted it that way.
GQS: C’mon, you’re wearing eyeliner regularly.
Alex: Yes of course. But only at home when I’m wearing the dresses of my girlfriend.
GQS: And the mane?
Alex: Sometimes I still got it. I always let my hair grow between jobs. On my head, in my face. I like that. And it’s practical. Before every role you’ve got all the possibilities to look like the character you’re supposed to play.
GQS: Do you sometimes tell the stylist on set that they have no concept of their job?
Alex: I’ve never had to. But good costume designers knows that a wrong pair of sneakers can destroy the credibility of the character.
