Season three of True Blood is all blood and sex, and the new Rolling Stone cover pays homage to those themes. With stars Alexander Skarsgard, Anna Paquin, and Stephen Moyer completely naked except for a light bloodbath on the cover, the only thing that's more provocative is creator Alan Ball's quote about vampires, which obliquely knocks Twilight. Ball says:
To me, vampires are sex. I don't get a vampire story about abstinence. I'm 53. I don't care about high school students. I find them irritating and uninformed.
That's not the only Twilight reference from the True Blood clan, either; Moyer jokes about Robert Pattinson being hot — only after he hypothesizes rather graphically about why vampires are sexy. Check out the issue when it comes out, and until then, get a load of some of the photos now!
