“The reason I did the Paparazzi video is that the director, Jonas Akerlund, is a fellow Swede and a good friend of mine, and he called and asked me to do it,” said the hunky True Blood star. “At the time, I didn’t know Lady Gaga’s work or her music very well, so I looked her up, and I thought, ‘Oh, this is pretty interesting.’ But I didn’t want to do something if we’d just be walking down the beach or holding hands or that sort of thing.
“And sure enough, when Jonas pitched it, he was like, ‘It won’t be anything silly. You’re going to try to kill her and push her off a balcony and then she’ll come back and she’ll poison you and you die.’ And I said, ‘That sounds cool, I’ll do that!’ I worked on it for six hours at least, six or seven hours, and I guess a lot of people saw it.
“The thing is, you can work on a movie for three months, and no one sees it, and then you do something like this for six hours, and that’s what people talk about!”
Asked if he plans to do more music videos, Skarsgård said, “That’s my new career. I’m just going to quit acting and do music videos from now on. I’m over ‘True Blood.’ I’m officially quitting right now!
“I’ll jump on anything. [Laughs] I’m just waiting for the phone to ring!”
