The year-long rumor that Alexander Skarsgård and Ellen Page are an item seems to be crystallizing, if the Twitter shot of the two of them canoodling in our fair city this weekend is to be believed.
They were in San Francisco to promote their movie "East," but they apparently went off-script when they cozied up to one another in a park, reclining in a romantic embrace.
According to the Huffington Post, the couple has to remain on the D.L. because of Skarsgård's rabid "True Blood" fanbase than wants to murder any woman he's associated with. The Daily Mail quoted one tweeter, "Ellen Page if you continue to date Alexander I will K-1-L-L you in public in the next year… Be it in a club, at a game, in a restaurant, or when you’re signing autographs." Yipes.
