Earlier this year, a few rumors swirled around British tabloids suggesting Alexander Skarsgard and Alexa Chung were talking marriage.
And while the couple have kept their romance on the DL since they began dating last year, "The Legend of Tarzan," which hits theaters Friday, July 1, is forcing Alexander into the hot seat when it comes to clarifying the state of his love life.
This week, the "True Blood" alum sat down with Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens Live," and a caller said she'd read Alexander planned to marry Alexa.
"Wow, I hope I'm invited," he joked, making light of the tab's claim (via E! News). "Wow, thank you."
Never one to drop an uncomfortable line of questioning, Andy followed the caller's lead and pressed Alexander, asking if he was going to get married in the next year.
"Not that I know of. But if it's in a gossip magazine, I guess it's probably true, so I better get started," he said.
The Swedish star also recently checked in with Mr Porter magazine, which asked similar questions about Alexander's future. He was similarly poker faced about things, saying simply, "I'm not married. I don't have kids. I feel OK about it. No midlife crisis yet."
If he's relaxed about the prospect of settling down, maybe it's because he's still enthralled with the dynamic his own, unique family shares.
Describing his childhood as "incredible," Alexander recalled there were no locked doors when he was growing up -- "we didn't even have keys," he marveled.
"My cousins were in the apartment above us, so the kids would just run up and down. And Grandma and Grandpa lived across the street."
He added that his dad, actor Stellan Skarsgard, "is a very social guy" whose love of cooking translated to nightly family meals with his seven brothers and sisters, all of whom have vacation houses right near each other today.
"It's very unusual. I'm very aware of that and how lucky we are," he said. "Almost all my siblings live within a four-block radius and every night my dad will cook for whoever swings by. There's a big dinner party almost every night of the week."
Speaking of dinner, the rippled chest and abs and chiseled arms Alexander rocks as Tarzan required some serious eating and weight-lifting to achieve. According to Mr Porter, the actor was prescribed a 7,000 calorie-a-day diet plus two training sessions a day to get in shape for the role. On the plus side, he was able to use his own trainer rather than a studio-assigned fitness expert.
"When you have to see the same person every morning at 4:30 a.m.," he explained, "it's important you get on well with them."
