Yes, ‘Infinity Pool’ Star Alexander Skarsgård Is Aware of Your Anti-Nepo-Baby Sentiment: ‘It’s Haunting Me’ (Video)

Sundance 2023: The star of “Infinity Pool” discusses the only thing more horrifying than his new movie

“Infinity Pool” is the latest phantasmagoria from writer/director Brandon Cronenberg, whose previous films “Antiviral” and “Possessor” were enough to shock even the most hardened horror fan. His latest stars Alexander Skarsgård, Mia Goth and Cleopatra Coleman and the director and star, when talking to TheWrap at Sundance, faced something even more brutal and terrifying than the film itself: a conversation about the “nepo-baby” controversy. When asked if he knew about the phenomenon, Skarsgård replied, “Oh I do.”

To explain: “nepo-baby” is a term for a young Hollywood star who has seemingly gotten a leg up thanks to their famous parents. Think Dakota Johnson or Maya Hawke or Jack Quaid.
