Midweek Skarsporn

Some scans of the VMAN magazine shoot have just appeared – here is a tease. The interview and the full set of pics are over at The Nest.

Note to magazine stylists: This man is 33 years old. Does he LOOK LIKE RPATZ TO YOU??

It seems to be all about the hair, this week.

Ridiculous hair aside, check the thumb/hand/bitey lip porn down there.

    Oh wow! He can literally bite me ANYWHERE he wants 😉

    The stubble is making me DIE.

    I’m a sucker for a three day growth, and that one is just…fucking amazing.

    Normally, I love Skarsporn, even though I don’t watch Trueblood. However, this time, he looks silly, I think, especially the one where he’s biting his thumb and covering one eye.

      I have to agree with you Suzanna. I am just not feeling these pics AT ALL!

      It makes me wonder if HE is trying to change his image, because he would have to have some kind of control of pics of himself. I am not sure how all that stuff works.

      First the LA magazine, then Details, and now this, Vman (although I love that name).
      All of these photo shoots were dramatic depatures from what we usually see.

        God, I hope that’s not the case! The spread in details and Vman are so utterly generic that it’s down right depressing.

    It’s so refreshing to be on a site that appreciates Skars/Eric. Since starting the show and books a few months ago I’ve been on a site that’s rather anti-both. Can you guess where? Anyway, that’s totally RPatz hair, and why’s it so dark?

    Well, I think I may need to take a old shower after that one. My week is certainly better now.

    I don’t think these pix are flattering for him.

    I like the expressions he is giving, but the hair is pretty RPatz, and I dont do sparkle boy, so that makes these a little less exciting. The hand over the face is a bit of a strange pose as well. Still, he looks yummy and I’ll take him anyway I can get him. I bow to the mighty brow.

    This isn’t working for me. There’s way to much retouching going on. Real life AS has wrinkles. It comes with having a beautifully expressive face and being a grown ass man.

    Seriously, I prefer his drunk face pics to this spread. The former always makes me laugh and makes him seem like a delightfully flawed individual, whereas the latter is just…meh. Basically they’ve robbed him of his personality and turned him into a generic pretty boy!

    First off, SVB, NEVER apologize for Skarsporn…midweek, mid-day…whenever!

    Second, that magazine also has single page tags of Ryan Kwanten and Allan Hyde! And I like some of the other pics of ASkars a LOT! Thank you Aaine!

      [First off, SVB, NEVER apologize for Skarsporn…midweek, mid-day…whenever!]

      I second that! I’ll take him every day, multiple times a day… Apparently my mind is wandering. NOW I need a cold shower 😉

      Is the hair maybe getting a tad longer, or is that just wishful thinking?

  12. April 21, 2010 at 3:51 am

    I agree. He is a man in his 30s not a freaking teen idol–despite the fact that we’re all fangirl on this site anyhow 😉 And I think they left quite a bit of his wrinkles…furrowed brow, etc.

    Despite the hairdo faux pas, the pics are very yummy. Love me some tux!porn.

    Hey all, I’ve been lurking here for awhile, love reading ya’lls comments, they crack me up. In a good way! Just wanted to thank SVB for all of the great skarsporn and the general good reading this blog provides.

    I agree with most of you, the hair-horrendous, but that face, ahhh… love the stubble. He looks delish. Why must they fuck with his hair. It was looking so good last year, before Straw Dogs, why mess with perfection?

  14. April 21, 2010 at 3:53 am

    Oh, and I forgot to say…new wallpaper for the iphone!

  15. April 21, 2010 at 4:59 am

    I think he looks like an anime character. Hello, Goku.

    Here’s where I step on toes. 😉 Grow a beard or shave. Choose one. As for the hair, I wouldn’t want to touch it because it has to be full of “product” for it to stand up like that. His natural hair, which we haven’t seen much of lately, is fine and limp, and tends to look almost painted on. All the futzing around they’ve been doing with dying it this color and that color, it’s probably about wrecked by now. Let it grow out, get rid of the treated hair and start over. I shudder to think about the pile of straw on Paquin’s head. /rant

    I have to concur with the RPatz clone thing going on here – the hair and the stubble. No, no, no. Neither the viewer nor the reader see him this way AT ALL. He’s supposed to be a Northern Viking with wheat-colored long hair. Hello???

    i dunno… the first pic he looks kinda concerned…. maybe he hates the hair too.
    the second pic is a face palm gone wrong, but he looks a bit vulnerable.
    the third pic… well… he looks like he could just devour someone, like he’s prone for attack.

    i love the way you guys analyse stuff

    Judging by the latest magazine’s covers (and the “Rebel without a Cause” image), it is obvious that someone is generating an intense marketing campaign to promote his hair. And certainly, the campaign is targeting a very different population than the usual SVM readers.

    That is some crazy ass hair right there, comrades. At least they can’t eff with his beautiful mouth, arms, and shoulders.

    April 21, 2010 at 2:36 pm

    Is it my imagination or does he look a little pained that they’ve screwed with his hair?

    • 35 Charlotte
      April 21, 2010 at 2:49 pm

      It’s not just you. He looks a little concerned about whats going on haha.

      April 21, 2010 at 3:03 pm

      I really, really do not think he has any handlers at all. If he did, whoever would be in charge of this aspect (PR rep?) of his career would make sure he had more control over the styling of these photo shoots.

      • 37 kelly1981
        April 21, 2010 at 3:06 pm

        well, it said in one interview that he showed up alone, his only request was a cup of coffee and he stood in for his own lighting prep….

        no PR geezer there…. maybe he needs one 😀

        • 38 sunnynala
          April 21, 2010 at 3:08 pm

          Yeah, and then they slashed on the manliner. 😦 Sheesh. Yes he does need one.

          April 21, 2010 at 6:08 pm

          But I think this is what I love about him so much – he’s not a diva and he seems so freaking down to earth. I think if he had all those handlers, PR reps, and publicists, he’d be just like every other hot guy in Hollywood who’s completely arrogant.

          I don’t mind these images that much – though I do like the tuxedo image with the hair mostly cropped out the best. I am in the camp that ASkars can pull off pretty much any look! =) (never before have I thought a man in SHEER t-shirt was hot!)

    This weeks poster! It’s Bill and he’s “missing” on a bottle of Tru Blood. LOL!


    However, I’m thinking the “navy” tie description is WRONG, but why? Didn’t Bill’s tie almost match Sookie’s dress, kind of a medium purple?

  23. April 21, 2010 at 3:54 pm

    I like this promo poster. Better than Sam last week.

    Having dealt with a parental health crisis in the last 24hrs., I needed this. Laughed till tears ran.

    Kate and ASkars at the pool so in love it’s kind of gross… If I had ASkars, I’d probably be the same, but, MAN, is she clingy!


    I’m sorry, but I just want to give Kate a cheeseburger – didn’t she fill out a bikini much better in Blue Crush??

    • 51 lagata181
      April 22, 2010 at 1:36 am

      I KNOW! When I saw these pics I had the same reaction – she looked cute and athletic but still very feminine in Blue Crush; in these pictures, she just looks scary-skinny and quite boyish. Perhaps someone should start a Feed Kate campaign? She looks like she hasn’t so much as glanced at a plate of pasta in months, poor creature. Then again, for all we know, she just has one of those metabolisms – I read somewhere that Kate Moss eats like a horse, so there you go.

      And yes, it is sort of ewww-inducing how syrupy-sweet these two have been looking over the past several days, but I suppose if they’re happy together, that’s all that matters. Not that it doesn’t suck for me and the rest of womankind, but i’m trying to be adult about it 🙂

      can someone zoom in on that script…. he’s holding it at such a promising angle in one of those pics….

    • 53 Sibyl_Vane
      April 22, 2010 at 4:49 pm

      She really does need to get some carbs in her. My hubby is in his 30’s and has always been thin no matter what he eats, but he has built on muscules in the past and it makes a big difference- maybe she could go that way? I don’t and I won’t every understand the appeal of the ultra thin boy body look. I would think if you were with a woman you might want to actually be able to feel it in the dark.
      I’m not trying to bash her, I’m sure she is nice enough, but I just don’t get it.
      On another note it looks like those poolside pics of her are all posed, like she is aware of it and making an effort for someone to geet every angle of her. Alex seems relaxed and sort of “whatever” about it.

    Granted, the arms….the hands…..even the nice, long fingers (are you using your imagination yet?!), are what dreams are made of (all kinds) and if I squint just a little, I’m losing the image of that hair — holy jeez — what the hell were they thinking?!
    Sorry, like lala said: I need the viking hair; not Twilight Boy! One good thing, at least he’s not wearing those Mafia track suits! Can’t wait to see how many different versions they dress him in this season — seems to be what the stylists are going for this year…..
    And yea I’d like to take that thumb and……well, you can just insert your own fantasy there!

      April 22, 2010 at 10:23 pm

      Oh yeah! My imagination is doing amazing things with those nice, long fingers. I’m betting they’re going to make a special appearance in certain people’s fanfic very soon. 😀

      Do not like the electrified hairdo. Don’t like these pics at all, actually. I don’t think they are dignified for a 33 year old man. However the tuxedo pic bears a startling resemblance to how my first true love looked when I went to a wedding with him many, many moons ago. I couldn’t believe the resemblance, though his hair was long and soft, not gelled up and spiky. Same height and body shape though, which could partly explain my obsession with the pretty Swede.

    I love our boy, but I absolutely can’t stand these photos. These are just wrong. The hair, the poke-a-dot pocket square, the whole thing. The guy is 33 years old not a teenager. I appreciate that he seems to be a guy who goes with the flow but, really , if I looked in the mirror and saw the stylist had done THAT I’d be saying there is no Fing way you are taking my picture.

    • April 22, 2010 at 3:42 am

      Just recrop them in Photoshop sans hair, dsm. They look MUCH better. 🙂

      Apart from the hair, I really think these are too pretty to waste.

        the thumb bitey one is good for inspiration when i’m trying to write my novel. tho i am heavily into making myself believe its the black and white style photo making his hair so dark.

My ramblings on the Sookie Stackhouse books, and the HBO series True Blood.
