HOOOOLLLLLLYYY SHIITAKE MUSHROOMS, YOU GUYS. WHEW. I think I’m sweating. Wait, let me wipe it off. Yeah, I was DEFINITELY sweating. Sick. But it looks like I’m not the only one getting heated around here. Our little friend Mr. Alexander Skarsgård takes over the June 2011 issue of GQ with one photo after another of him slowly, delicately, and tirelessly undressing in the sweltering sun, and THANK GOD NO ONE ON THIS DESERTED ISLAND IS THERE TO STOP HIM.

But you guys realize he’s a 1,000-year-old dead guy, right? He’s Eric Northman from True Blood, duhhhh. You know, that hot vampire dude that used to have an UH-MAZING Kurt Cobain-y blonde bob at the beginning of the series, but in some HORRIFIC MOVE by the producers they forced him to cut it off. Or it was part of the plot. WHATEVS. Either way, we’re just happy Mr. Skarsgård is on the show so he can do amazing stuff like be featured in men’s magazines with gorge, high-res pictures with his bicep muscles in full view.

Like, we can’t EVEN DECIDE which one of these photos we like best. The cover shot is nice because this is what we imagine Alexander to look like while getting ready in the morning. Like as he’s about to put on his slate gray skinny tie over his military-inspired light blue shirt, he whispers, “Hey, babe. Thanks for the eggs. They were perfect,” and kisses us on the cheek all while managing to keep direct eye contact to let us know that he’s real and sincere. Right before he buttons up his shirt we notice his lucky necklace, which he NEVER leaves without, and only we know that because we’re his one and only girl.

The second pic is more of defeated Alexander look. He was like, “Ugh, WHY did I wear boots and jeans to the beach? Worst idea everrrr,” but then he probably realized, “Well, since I AM at the beach I might as well have fun and get a tan!” so he unbuttoned his shirt a little (because farmer’s tan = ew), rolled ’dem sleeves up, got on his knees and started building sand castles (as evidenced by the sand on his shins, obvi).

In the last pic, we imagine that we’ve just disturbed Alexander while he was just getting “to the good part” of The Iliad, and he’s frustrated and mad because it took him three days of sitting in this uncomfortable hammock without showering just to get through the first 100 pages (they used a reeeeeeeally small font in this edition). We think it’s kinda cute when he gets irritable, until he yells at us to get out of his “man cave,” to which we respond, “Fine, whatever dude!” And pretend like we’re actually upset when really we’re just thanking our lucky stars that we bagged a boyfriend THIS HOT.
