True Blood's Anna Paquin is usually flanked by her sexy costars, but inside the July issue of V Magazine, on stands July 7, she stands alone and shines in a series of sultry poses. The fourth season of the cable series premieres tonight, and the entire cast has been talking up the steamy love triangle between Bill, Sookie, and Eric, which looks like it will be even more complicated than ever. Alexander Skarsgård, Stephen Moyer, Joe Manganiello, and Anna graced three different covers of Entertainment Weekly, out now, and Joe even stripped down for a shirtless GQ spread. For her part, Anna talked to V about awkward love scenes, her theater background, and what she thinks when fans throw themselves at her husband and costar, Stephen. Here's more:
- Anna on theater: "On stage you don't have anything to hide behind. I have never felt so naked."
- Anna on Sookie: "Sookie is always in distress; it wouldn't be True Blood if someone wasn't trying to kill her."
- Anna on sleeping with her husband on set: "Maybe it should be weird, simulating sex with your husband in front of people. But it's really not. When it's a love scene with someone you actually love, it's no 'can I touch him here, can I touch him there?' You know what your boundaries are, or aren't, I suppose."
- Anna on Stephen's fans: "There is probably something wrong with me, but I find it amusing to watch these men and women fawn all over him. It's not like anyone is really trying to do anything inappropriate. They just want him to hug them . . . or bite them."
