Love is reportedly in the air for Alexander Skarsgard and British ‘It’ girl Alexa Chung after the duo was spotted enjoying each other’s company all over New York City, including a night out at the Father John Misty concert at the Bowery Ballroom back in February and a weekend visit to the Botanical Gardens in Brooklyn, where they were pictured together for the first time. Alexa also shared a photo of herself, taken by Alexander, amid the garden's roses with the caption: "O rose, thou are sick!"
Both Alexander and Alexa have been relishing in the single life since splitting from their longtime partners in 2011. The True Blood hunk parted ways with his Straw Dogs co-star Kate Bosworth after dating for two years, while Alexa’s relationship with Arctic Monkeys front-man Alex Turner came to an end following a four-year romance.
Since saying farewell to his vampy alter-ego Eric Northman last year, Alexander, 38, has been busy working on four feature films, including the upcoming The Diary of a Teenage Girl and the horror film Hidden. He is also the latest actor to take a swing at playing Tarzan in Warner Bros.’s modern-day, live-action adaptation of the famous adventure tale.
Alexa is just as busy as her handsome beau. She is Harper’s Bazaar UK’s July cover girl, moonlights as a DJ, co-designs a line for AG Jeans and is a constant fixture at every high-profile fashion event from Paris to New York - not to mention running in a Brit Pack of babes that includes Poppy and Cara Delevingne and Kate Moss. When it comes to dating, the Hampshire-born beauty, 31, tells Harper’s Bazaar, “I'm just more old-school in the idea that things happen when they're supposed to. You can't force it. Everyone I've ever fallen in love with, I just fell in love with! I didn't date them to try."
Only time will tell if Alexa has found true love with Alexander, but a source tells US Weekly that, “it is serious and has really heated up.”
