So, is Alexander Skarsgård really ready to pop the question?
Skarsgård has been dating Alexa Chung since 2015, and although the two are seriously private about their relationship, rumors have been flying about whether they’re planning on taking the next step in their relationship.
And Skarsgård was forced to confront those rumors when he appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live to promote his new movie, The Legend of Tarzan. A viewer who called in during the show told Skarsgård that she had read in a tabloid that he’s ready to get down on one knee, and asked him if there was any truth to the report.
Skarsgård, who appeared caught off-guard by the question, replied, “Wow, I hope I’m invited. Wow, thank you.”
Host Andy Cohen decided to dig deeper, though, asking, “Are you getting married in the next year?”
Skarsgård answered, “Not that I know of. But if it’s in a gossip magazine, I guess it’s probably true, so [I’d] better get started.”
This isn’t the first time Skarsgård has said something in an interview that made him seem happy about his single life. In another recent interview, he denied having any desire yet to settle down.
“I’m not married. I don’t have kids,” he said “I feel OK about it. No midlife crisis yet.”
But that doesn’t mean family isn’t important to Skarsgård, who says he’s extremely close to his Swedish father and brothers.
“Almost all my siblings live within a four-block radius, and every night my dad will cook for whoever swings by,” he explained. “There’s a big dinner party almost every night of the week.”
