Alexander Skarsgard And Charlize Theron Walk Into A Gay Bar

Despite what you might read in the tabloids, the stars don’t want their privacy. If Jennifer Aniston didn’t want the paparazzi taking her picture outside the Ivy, she wouldn’t go to the Ivy—she’d go to Arby’s in Pasedena.  The leave-us-alone ploy is a tactic celebs use so they don’t look as egocentric as they actually are.

Witness Alexander Skarsgard and Charlize Theron, who were recently seen canoodling in L.A. Apparently the blond bombshells chose Gym Sportsbar, a gay watering hole in West Hollywood, for their tryst—because they thought no one would recognize them there.

In a gay bar. In West Hollywood.  Alexander Skarsgard and Charlize Theron.

As DListed eloquently puts it:

What self-respecting gay dude would not recognize ASkars? I could be blindfolded in the basement of Gym and I’d know ASkars walked through the front door, because my asshole would start blowing out the melody to a Swedish Viking song.

According to The National Enquirer, the two sat on the patio and nursed beers while holding hands and staring into each others’ baby blues. After about an hour, they left arm-in-arm after and got into the same car.

Guess that means Skarsgard and Kate Bosworth Elizabeth Olsen are fini. Or maybe he and Charlize have a movie project coming up together and just want to generate some buzz?
