The Word: You’ve gone too far, ‘True Blood’ fans

Alexander Skarsgard won’t bite — ever. Stop asking.

We get why you “True Blood” fans are obsessed with Alexander Skarsgard. We really do. In addition to being so hilariously, text-book attractive that he played one of the “Zoolander” models, the guy says things like this about his ex-girlfriends in a new interview with BlackBook magazine: “Kate [Bosworth] is such a great actress, and she’s so much more than a good-looking Hollywood starlet … we shared a really special experience.”

Swooning approved. We’ll even sign off on some weird vampire fantasies, if that’s your deal (and come on, it is: There’s simply no other reason to watch “True Blood”).

But begging for a bite? Really?

“That’s one thing I’ll never really understand,” Skarsgard says of nibble requests from fans. “But the main reason I don’t ever do it is because if I do it just once, every single person will be like, ‘Bite me! Bite me! Bite me!’”

We take it back — you people are freaks.

Lindsey feels it out

Lindsey Lohan added a new tattoo to her ribcage this week — which
was, obviously, visible through the side of her “shirt.” The ink? Lyrics
to Billy Joel’s “I Go to Extremes”:?“Clear as a crystal, sharp as a
knife I feel like I’m in the prime of my life.”

Just like I feel like I’m about to win a Pulitzer and go to the gym on my way home. It’s all about the positive thinking, babe.

She likes us! She really likes us!

You can’t blame Jennifer Aniston for not regularly reading tabloids. But on rare occasions, she does pick one up: “Most of it’s just bulls—, however entertaining,” she tells Glamour.

The takeaway here: Jennifer Aniston thinks we’re entertaining!

A word of warning from David Beckham

“She’s got three brothers that will take her, three brothers that will eat with her and three brothers that will bring her back home and a dad waiting for her,” the actor tells Access Hollywood of what will happen when his brand-new daughter starts dating.
