Stephen Moyer Comfortable With Paquin and Skarsgard Sex Scenes

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Drama, Prime Time, Sci-Fi/Horror, HBO, Gossip,

Alexander Skarsgard, Anna Paquin, and Stephen MoyerAnna Paquin says her husband is completely comfortable watching her sex scenes with Alexander Skarsgard.

The 29-year-old actress, is married to Stephen Moyer - who is her True Blood co-star - and says that the two men are friends which makes it easier.

"We feel completely comfortable together. Everyone is very respectful of each other's boundaries ... They're all very gentlemanly about it," she said.

Anna, who plays Sookie Stackhouse in the show, met Stephen, who plays vampire Bill Compton, on the set of the program. Their characters were also lovers, but later split up on screen.

Anna - who is pregnant with twins - admitted that she has two sides to her personality and although she will be a maternal parent, she may also get urges to run away with her family: "I have a side that's very nesty. And another that thinks, 'Let's lock up the house and go away for five months.'"

Quote of the Day: True Blood’s Moyer on Being Intimate with Paquin

True Blood's Bill and Sookie

“Everybody on set now gets to see what goes on behind closed doors. We leave nothing to the imagination! [Laughs] But our love scenes actually work really well. Since the crew knows we do have chemistry and are together in real life, I feel like it takes away from the nerve-racking tension that can occur when people have to watch two actors who are just getting to know each other engage in an intimate scene.”

Anna Paquin Underwhelmed by Award Nominations

Anna Paquin was more excited about passing her driving test than being nominated for a Golden Globe award.

The star - who is up for the Best Actress in a Television Drama honor - admits she’s thrilled to be acknowledged for her work but is happier that she now has the freedom to drive herself about.

“I’m oddly more excited about the driver’s license. I’m totally the two-handed driver, and I’m not very good at parallel parking,” she said.

The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards take place on Sunday, but Anna admits she doesn’t get too excited about attending glittering ceremonies. Paquin - who won the same award year and a Best Supporting Actress Oscar at age 11 - said: “It’s probably not any different than any other day.”
