Tarzan hunk Alexander Skarsgård partied with girlfriend Alexa Chung at Stockholm's hipster club, while Alicia Vikander joined Matt Damon for the Jason Bourne premiere.

Skarsgård was back home in Stockholm to attend the Sweden premiere of his new blockbuster 'The Legend of Tarzan' on Monday evening.

Afterwards, he did what most Swedes who fall into the 'hip and cool' category do on a summer night: partied at Trädgården.

The 36-year-old Swede was joined by his girlfriend Chung, 32, at the club in the Södermalm district, known for its trendy bars, vintage shops and sourdough bakeries.

The British model posted picture on social media of herself partying and playing table tennis, but the couple – who have yet to admit they are a couple – avoided being photographed together.


If your name's not down you're not coming in.

Chung, as seen above, was dressed in a jungle-inspired striped suit. The Local was unable to get official confirmation, but we assume that Skarsgård kept his trousers on… this time at least

“It feels special to show this [movie] at home in Stockholm where I used to pretend I was Tarzan as a child,” Skarsgård told the Aftonbladet tabloid on the red carpet earlier in the evening.

“Coming home to Stockholm and Söder is totally magical. I was enormously shocked at how big a deal it was and how many people there were at the premiere.”

Meanwhile in London, Sweden's Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander glittered at the premiere of the latest instalment of Matt Damon's hit action series Jason Bourne.

The 27-year-old plays Heather Lee, one of the new lead characters in the movie, and the latest in a long line of starring roles in Hollywood movies in the past couple of years alone.

Earlier this year Vikander became the first Swedish actress to win an Academy Award in four decades, for her performance in acclaimed trans gender movie 'The Danish Girl'.
