Despite his son Alexander Skarsgård achieving huge fame on True Blood, Stellan's not taking credit. He told E!:
"I don't give him any advice at all, because for my kids, from the age of 16 their lives are their responsibility. If he had the feeling that it was thanks to me that he had any of his success, it would just be half a success. He owes everything to himself."
