For Anna Paquin, work entails embracing the supernatural.
And lots of boinking with real-life boyfriend Stephen Moyer.
“It’s a very sexy vampire show,” the star of HBO’s True Blood said in an interview with AOL Television, “and yes, there’s more getting it on, so to speak.”
Paquin, who plays sweet clairvoyant Sookie Stackhouse on HBO’s cult hit, doesn’t seem fazed by – True Blood spoiler alert! – the gratuitous nudity required.
“I feel fine,” Paquin says. “Although the way that people ask me about it all the time, I feel like maybe I should feel uptight about it. But I really don’t.”
Of course, doing the scenes with real-life love Stephen Moyer makes it easier.
“Obviously, if you’re already with that person then you’re not having to sort of get over the ‘Wow, I’m naked with someone I don’t even know the middle name of!'” the 26-year-old Academy Award-winner (for The Piano) laughs.
“I think that regardless of what kind of scene you’re doing, the better you know the person … the more open and real your performance can be,” she adds.
“And that goes for stunt scenes and heavy emotional scenes and sex scenes. OK, so I have a little bit of a leg up in that area with my on-screen [partner].”
Stephen Moyer recently incurred the wrath of Twilight fans for calling Robert Pattinson a pu$$y and the Diet Coke of vampires. Now he’s going to make people jealous by virtue of the fact that he boinks Anna Paquin on screen.
Or is he? Do you think Anna Paquin is hot?
