Anna Paquin And Stephen Moyer Spill Their Guts To “Nylon”

Sweet vampire plaything Anna Paquin and her on-and-off-screen lovah, Stephen Moyer, did an interview for the September issue of Nylon. As a huge fan of “True Blood,” I got super pumped when I saw the cover, which features Anna looking gorgeous though slightly off-kilter. But I got even more excited when Anna started talking about nudity, going blonde and, of course, vampires. After the jump, some of my fave quotes. On her (gasp!) nude scenes:

“I’m sorry, maybe there are women who keep their bras on while they have sex. I don’t happen to be one of them…I don’t think a naked body is particularly shocking or interesting. It’s not the culture I was raised in. I was not brought up in the United States. I don’t share the [attitude] that you can have graphic violence, but—God forbid—you see someone’s nipples.”


On becoming a blonde bimbo for the role of Sookie:

“I don’t look like a Barbie doll, and probably never will. People are incredibly literal in how they view you. You have dark hair and pale skin? You must be brooding. The second you dye your hair blonde and get a spray tan, people treat you as if you’re a bit stupider and happier. Suddenly, it’s like you’re hot and sexy.”

Stephen talks about vamps:

“The thing about vampirism is that it taps into a female point of view—you have an old-fashioned gentleman with manners who is a f**king killer…But when do you know it’s OK to crawl out of the mud and rape her [as Bill does in one scene]?… It’s difficult stuff for a bloke, but a vampire gets away with it.”
