Ellen Page and Alexander Skarsgard Are Just Friends, Says Source

Some appearances – sweet as they may be – can be deceiving.

After a cozy photograph of Ellen Page and her The East costar Alexander Skarsgard made the rounds on social media over the weekend – Tweeted out by the film's director, Zal Batmanglij, no less – speculation ramped up that the two were an item off-screen.

But, a source tells PEOPLE, the costars are just friends. And it isn't even clear how long ago the picture was taken.

The actress, however, liked it enough to re-Tweet: the photo shows the two dressed in matching denim outfits with Skarsgard's arm around Page, who seems to be lying in his lap. "Canadian tuxedo party," she wrote, referencing their denim on denim ensembles.

Anna Paquin: Sex Scenes with Alexander Skarsgard Are 'Completely Comfortable'

Originally posted 06/28/2012 08:00AM

Some actors admit to awkward moments filming love scenes.

Anna Paquin is not one of them.

Although her husband and father of her baby-on-the-way, Stephen Moyer, 42, costars with her on True Blood, the actress has no qualms about filming sex scenes with fellow cast mate Alexander Skarsgard.

"We feel completely comfortable together," Paquin, 29, tells Redbook in its August issue hitting newsstands July 10. "Steve and Alex are buddies. It's nothing like, 'Oh, hi, nice to meet you. Now take off your clothes and go into the fog.' Everyone is respectful of each other's boundaries ... They're all very gentlemanly about it."

Miley Cyrus Parties in Hollywood While Fiancé Liam Hemsworth Works

Originally posted 06/26/2012 06:00AM

While Liam Hemsworth was busy filming in New Orleans over the weekend, his fiancée Miley Cyrus made time to hit up her favorite Hollywood hotspot.

Popping into Beacher's Madhouse inside the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel at around 11:45 p.m., the "Can't Be Tamed" singer was joined by a group of girlfriends – and they immediately headed to Cyrus's usual table in the front row of the club.

"Miley spent most of the night dancing," an onlooker tells PEOPLE, adding that she shimmied to songs by Pitbull and Michael Jackson.

But it wasn't until Rihanna came on that Cyrus really seemed to be having a ball on the dance floor.

"She threw her hands in the air when the deejay started playing, 'We Found Love,' " the source says. "She was very chatty and was in a great mood. At around 12:15 a.m., she pulled her girlfriend into the photo booth to take pictures together."

Also on hand that evening was Alexander Skarsgard.

The True Blood hunk was "approached by a handful of girls," says the source, but "[seemed to enjoy] his evening mostly under the radar."

Toast True Blood with Bloody Good Cocktails

Originally posted 06/08/2012 01:30PM

What better way to kick off the campy new season of True Blood on June 10 than with a couple of blood red cocktails.

Basil Hayden's bourbon teamed with L.A. mixologist Joel Black to come up with two drinks inspired by the HBO hit's supernatural themes and the show's gutsy leading lady, Sookie Stackhouse, played by expectant mom Anna Paquin.

Fans who want to imbibe while Sookie, Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) and a host of supernatural creatures battle it out in Bon Temps, might want to try – what else – a spicy True Bloody Mary or a sweet floral cocktail dubbed Sookie's Virtue, which includes red grapes and raspberries.
