Alexander Skarsgard, Kate Bosworth call it quits

July 27, 2011 |  2:01 pm

Alexander Skarsgard and Kate Bosworth have broken up.

Alexander Skarsgard and Kate Bosworth have reportedly ended their relationship.

The blond duo were going strong for roughly two years, though neither party has ever commented on their romantic status. 

"It was very mutual and it happened a while ago," a source told Us of the split.

Skarsgard and Bosworth sparked in August 2009 on the set of their flick "Straw Dogs," which will see a wide release this September (not the first time this year a break-up has been followed by a promotional campaign).

The quiet courtship saw sushi dates and the occasional music festival -- Skarsgard even dined with Bosworth's parents in March to celebrate her Nylon magazine cover.  

The "True Blood" hunk recently attended Comic-Con 2011, where he allegedly flirted with a brunette, Us said. "He's single," added a second source, "and he is loving the attention!"
