Alexander Skarsgård & Ellen Page Make The Cutest Celebrity Couple EVER


So for the past few months I’ve been hearing talk that actors and co-stars Alexander Skarsgård and Ellen Page have been dating but, honestly, I never believed it. I assumed the dating talk was just rumor because the couple have been working hard to promote their film The East (because heaven knows that a famous man and a famous woman cannot walk side by side without folks thinking they are dating). Welp, it turns out that all the romance rumors are … true! The couple were snapped in a very intimately cozy photo over the weekend which appears to be their “coming out” photo. Click below to see the photo and judge for yourselves … it looks like Alexander and Ellen are seriously the hot new celeb couple.

They’ve been dating for a year, and their romance seems to be going from strength to strength. And Alexander Skarsgard and Ellen Page looked more in love than ever as they took some time out from promoting their new movie, The East, over the weekend. Cuddling up to each other as they kicked back in a San Francisco park, the Swedish actor could be seen planting a tender kiss on his girlfriend’s cheek as she reclined happily in his arms. Smiling coyly as her 36-year-old beau wrapped his arm around her shoulder, the Juno star looked the absolute picture of contentment as she enjoyed some quality time with her man. The intimate snap was shared on Twitter by The East director Zal Batmanglij, who accompanied the duo on their promotional trip to San Francisco. Writing alongside the adorable picture, he wrote: ‘This reminds me of shooting. When we’d lie in the grass listening to Toby practice Rostam’s piano piece. #TheEast.’

It was a flying visit for the couple, with Ellen and Alexander spotted arriving back at Los Angeles International Airport on Sunday after completing their duties. The 26-year-old actress was rocking a double denim look in a button-down shirt and jeans, which she teamed with tan leather boots and a trucker cap, while adding a touch of glam to her ensemble with a pair of dark shades. Meanwhile, Alexander – who previously dated actress Kate Bosworth – looked casual in jeans, a teal T-shirt and shades. The couple have been dating for a year and were first seen on a date at the Stanley Cup final in June 2012 after meeting on the set of The East the previous winter.

I have to say … I’m so surprised by this couple. I don’t think I would’ve ever guessed that these two were made for one another but I have to admit, they look really cute together. It’s been some time since I’ve been charmed by a celebrity couple but these two? Yeah, I think they’re adorable. I feel kinda bad that I never believed they were actually together because they just didn’t seem like the kind of people who would couple up. Goes to show what I know. Sorry ladies (and gentlemen), Alexander got scooped up by Ellen Page. You mad?

    I refuse to believe this. If I choose to not believe it, it won’t hurt me as much when we find out it isn’t true… (Unless it is then I AM SO DAMN HAPPY. CHRISTMAS DAY HAPPY. I WANT THIS TO BE TRUE SO MUCH. PLEASE LET IT BE!) So basically, I would like this Small Canadian and the Tall Swede to be diddling each other and stuff. I could go on and describe my excitement, but I’ll stop now and go to bed.

    • Krissy

      “Small Canadian and the Tall Swede” LOL!

      Soooo much more adorable than the other small Canadian!

  • adam

    I have to say what I’m sure a lot of people are thinking… Apart from the fact that both Ellen and Alexander were single when they met, this is a bit of a Johnny Depp / Amber Heard scenario we have here; so it is a bit more shocking than a typical co-stars romance thing. That said, I’ve been a fan of both for a while, they both seem very sweet in interviews and cool, and they certainly look happy in that photo. Cute couple!

    • Krissy

      Re; Depp / Heard situation…

      I have heard people say that this is 100% NOT a real thing because of Ellen’s past romances. IMO, human beings aren’t 100% any one thing and anything is possible even despite a person’s past. Sometimes a special soul can make you take a chance no matter what package they come in.

    • Serenity

      @Krissy Your last line is dangerously close to “people choose their sexual orientation.”

      Anyhow, Ellen has never confirmed or denied the gay rumors, so I haven’t thought about her romantic life very much. I’m not getting the couples vibe from these two, though. It just looks staged.

    • Krissy

      I wasn’t saying that people chose their orientation at all. I was saying just the opposite, that you can’t pick who you are attracted to, no matter what you have done in the past. Ellen has never labeled herself, so why are some trying to put limitations on her? (On another site yesterday I saw rabid comments about how never in a million years could this ever happen). People were trying to cement her as lesbian, when it is possible she’s bi-sexual.

  • Krissy

    Since they aren’t confirming, I am not going to do any celebrating yet. I think they both come across as kind and thoughful people, so if they are together, yay. If not, that is cool too.

    As a woman, I just have to point out the under-boob-finger-rub he is giving her on the red carpet. But some guys who aren’t my boyfriend have tried that on me before, so it isn’t conclusive evidence. But it does look like an attempt to cop a feel.

    • Ana

      Well… she IS really short and he IS really tall, so maybe that’s the are he can reach that isn’t too uncomfortable (and it’s not a “hand in the shoulder” type of thing, that you don’t actually see in red carpets).
      Even if they are actually together, I don’t think he did the ‘under-boob-finger-rub’ on purpose. If they’ve been together for a year and aren’t really ‘public’ about it, I don’t think he will give such a public PDA.

      (Yep, I just spent all that time talking about a finger =P)

    • Joan

      LOL, Krissy, neither of them seem to be the kind of celebrity to go out and explicitly confirm a relationship, so the under-boob-finger-rub might be as close we are going to get a confirmation. LOL!

  • Megan

    Wow they just seem so odd together, but I kinda love it!

  • Carmen

    Oh, how I love Ellen Page. Giving Nova Scotian girls hope that they will one day end up with a gorgeous, European man. Some day, it will be the same for me…

  • Megan

    They look absolutely adorable together in the park picture, but the red carpet picture creeps me out. He looks like he could be her dad.

  • Joan

    Personally, I call this a win for nerdy people.

  • Danielle

    I was under the impression that Ellen Page is gay? Maybe I’m incorrect, but as soon as I saw this headline I was super confused.

  • jc

    Eh they don’t look good together. Its just weird. Like avril and chad…no.

  • Lulu

    I don’t know… I want to love this, but it does feel a bit stagey for me. :/

  • Luna

    Holy moley Ellen Page is 26 years old already? I thought she was 16 or something!

    Wow. Don’t know what to say. Except that my flow of thoughts went something like this when I first saw the headline:

    WTF? — > Isn’t this child molest? —> WHAT she is 26 years old?! What face cream does she use? –> Damn Alexander is a hot fine thing. That lucky bitch. —> I wonder how they kiss or do that deed. Guess 69 could never work out for them.

    • Alexggb

      69 is always doable… Hehe.

    • stfuChivonne

      hahaha pretty much my thought process but i had the added “i thought she was gay…. wait what?” thrown in to the mix

  • Alexggb

    I thought she was gay. I see him with the more girly type, you can’t be the most beautiful in the relationship when you are the guy. He’s so…. You know. And she is OK but she is meh… And he is… Damn.

  • Evelyn

    Ellen Page is the new Eva Mendes! I’m so jealous!

    • @Evelyn — Yes, exactly

  • Susan

    Attention short ladies: Stop taking all of the tall men! It leaves nobody for us tall ladies! As a 6 ft tall girl who has always ended up dating someone my height or shorter, I am automatically irritated when a teeny tiny girl ends up with a super tall dude.

    But they are super cute together and I kinda hope this is for real.
