Anna Paquin is a happily married woman.
But, come on, she can tell us: doesn't she get sick of Stephen Moyer, who she sees at home and on the set of True Blood?
“No," she says in the latest issue of Health. "I miss him when he leaves. That’s nauseating, I know. My me-time requirements are quite small.”
Among other topics the actress delves into inside this issue, which is on newsstands now: her favorite TV show and more. Excerpts are below...On how portraying Sookie inspires her to work out:
“If you’re going to be spending literally every single day of your working life wearing clothes that barely cover your body, you’re gonna be extra-diligent... There’s just a little extra motivation of, ‘Hmmm, teeny white shorts and a bikini top? I think I will go to Pilates this morning.’”
On her favorite TV show:
“I re-watch – and when I say the entire series, I literally mean the entire series of – The West Wing every year. I'm sort of secretly stalking Aaron Sorkin. I'm obsessed with his work. I think he's a genius.”
On how she dealt with Hollywood at a young age:
“I have a really, really, really normal family. And by normal I mean we’re all nuts on some level. I think you’ve gotta be a little nuts to pursue any kind of creative job. I was also a really good kid…I didn’t rebel in the traditional sense.”
