Alexander Skarsgard showed just why he was the perfect pick to play Tarzan on the big screen in a new portrait for Vogue.
The 39-year-old hunk showed off his incredible physique while posing in a soaking wet shirt for the fashion magazine.
The cotton fabric clings to his skin showing every bulge and sculpted tone as the actor stares straight into the camera.
The new photo is part of a feature in the June issue of Vogue to promote the action adventure flick that co-stars Margot Robbie as Jane.
The True Blood star recalled in an interview how he’d first met the blonde bombshell in LA just before The Wolf Of Wall Street came out in 2013.
‘She lived in this tiny studio apartment in Hollywood. We were supposed to just have coffee and talk about the project, but we spent the entire day together,’ he said.
‘I remember being blown away by how cool and down-to-earth she was. And then Wolf came out, and she went from relative obscurity to being the hottest actress in Hollywood.’
The Legend Of Tarzan, coming out on July 1, is a modern re-telling of the classic story about a boy raised by apes in the jungle.
The movie opens with Tarzan now living in London as John Clayton, Lord Greystoke, and married to Jane.
He is invited to return to the Congo as a British government trade emissary.
But he finds himself at the heart of a murderous plot driven by greed and revenge and in danger of becoming a pawn in a high stakes game being played by a Belgian Mastermind, played by Christoph Waltz.
Directed by David Yates, who helmed several of the Harry Potter films, the cast also includes Samuel L. Jackson, Simon Russell Beale and John Hurt.
