Now, that's an outhouse.

Alexander Skarsgard obviously needed a little quiet time to read (Jack London, perhaps?) and enjoy his morning rituals after his recent arrival at the South Pole.

On the same trek that brought Prince Harry to Antarctica, the True Blood star, 39, led a team of wounded ex-servicemen and women on a four-week, 200-mile trek to the earth's southern extremity to raise awareness for the prince's "Walking with the Wounded" Challenge.

"#southpole -30C What are you reading Alex? The script for season 7 of #truebloodHBO? :) #alexanderskarsgard," wrote Inge Solheim, Skarsgard's team guide on the Challenge, in a message that appeared alongside the Instagram photo he snapped of the actor.

The tall HBO hunk is certainly no stranger to appearing without a stitch, although this may be the first – and last – time he sheds his protective layers in sub-zero temps.

For those who might have possibly forgotten, last August the Swedish star exposed it all on the season six finale of True Blood.
