Alexander Skarsgård is a beautiful man — and makes a stunning woman. At the premiere of his new movie, The Diary of a Teenage Girl, on Monday night, the Swedish actor walked the red carpet at San Francisco’s Castro Theater in a floor-length gold dress. He paired the gown with crystal-embellished heels — even though he’s 6 feet 4 inches without them — carried a silver clutch, and accessorized with large gold hoop earrings. He also had on a feathered blonde wig and full face of makeup, including fake eyelashes, blushed cheeks, and a statement pink lip.

Baby Peggy – a Story of a Silent Film Star
The Guardian just posted a wonderful expose about Baby Peggy, a child actor star from the early days of silent movies who worked with Edgar Burroughs on set of Tarzan.
In 1922, when Hollywood was young and anarchic, an actor known as Baby Peggy made a silent film called The Darling Of New York. Her career was booming and this was a major role, the movie pivoting on a scene in which she would be trapped – title-cards illuminating the horror – in a burning bedroom. On the day of the shoot, propmen doused their set in kerosene. Then they positioned Baby Peggy in the middle and lit everything on fire – including, the actor thinks by accident, the door by which she was meant to escape. Forced to improvise, she had to claw a way out across a burning windowsill, her performance later praised for its realism. Baby Peggy was four years old. “They said I was fearless,” she remembers. “Which was not true.”

Transforming into a Martian for the John Carter movie
Ekaterina Botziou posted about her interesting experience starring in the 2012 John Carter movie. She describes the process of transforming into a native Martian by undergoing deep St Tropez tan sprays every two weeks, as well having red swirly tattooed glued onto her. Here is an excerpt of her experience:
The problem with a fake spray tan is that it gets progressively darker as time passes. So some days, I would get to the studios in the morning, as pale as a ghost, and travel back home on the train getting more and more orange with every stop.
I looked like a cross between a member of Hell’s Angels and an orange smurf.
The cast spent almost 4 hours in hair and make-up every morning (bear in mind that our call time was usually 5:30am so the make-up artists had to work wonders), and we were told to ease up on the nightly wash in case the tan came off. Fat chance.
