Alexander Skarsgård is no stranger to posing naked, so it really isn’t a huge surprise that he stripped off everything but his snow boots for a nude photo at the South Pole last month.
Skarsgård’s nude photo was taken after he and several others, including Prince Harry, trekked to the southernmost point of the Earth on the Walking With the Wounded Challenge. Inge Solheim, who acted as Skarsgård’s team guide, posted the photo to his Instagram account on Tuesday.
Solheim wrote, “#southpole -30C What are you reading Alex? The script for season 7 of #truebloodHBO?” The photo was somewhat reminiscent of the the one during the season six finale of True Blood, where Skarsgård also ditched his clothes and went full frontal.
And while his fans, and critics, may think it’s odd to see the actor (almost) completely naked in sub-zero temperatures, Skarsgård revealed last year that nudity is nothing new for him … or for his family, notes E! Online. He explained, “My dad and his side of the family are old hippies. I was 14 the first time I saw my dad wearing pants. He was always naked.” Well, apparently like father, like son.
