EW caught up with Alexander Skarsgard at the Totonto International Film Festival to promote his movie, What Maisie Knew.
He talks about the movie, his 7 year old co-star and acting.
Check it all out here.
Below is an excerpt:
Skarsgard remembered starring in his own first role, when he was 7, Aprile’s age, and what it’s like being a child actor. He worked from age 7 to 13, and then took a break. Fame, Skarsgard said, “is f—king weird, and especially when you’re 13, and you have no idea what’s going on, and who you are. There’s nothing natural about being a celebrity. When I was that age, it made me paranoid. I didn’t like it at all.” As for Aprile, just starting out her career, Skarsgard said, she was a talented natural. Not to mention loving balloons.
