That Photo You Love Of Alexander Skarsgård In Bed Isn't Actually Alexander Skarsgård
It's all a lie.
If you're an Alexander Skarsgård fan, chances are you've seen/drooled over/reblogged/written fan fiction about this photo.
It's been doing the rounds for years, including in this very official-looking version.
That's right, it's actually a shot of Eric Nies, a cast member from the very first season of MTV's The Real World.
The image is from a 1993 photo shoot. Some thirsty ASkars fan got their hands on it and elongated the body, paled the skin and got rid of the underarm hair.
And stuck Skarsgård's head on Nies' body, of course.
For the record, this is what ASkars actually looks like with his shirt off.
Which is quite different from the photo manipulation.
Still great, of course.
Really great, actually.
But decidedly not Eric Nies circa 1993.
