Bloody Naked Alexander Skarsgard, Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer on Rolling Stone Cover 2010-08-17 12:00:00

Alexander Skarsgard, Anna Paquin, and Stephen Moyer Are Naked and Bloody on Rolling Stone — Sexy or Gross?

True Blood trio Alexander Skarsgard, Anna Paquin, and Stephen Moyer stripped down to the buff to pose for the newest cover of Rolling Stone. Their show has been gorier than ever this season, a fact they clearly embraced in this blood-soaked shoot. In the article, the show's creator Alan Ball made a few jabs at Twilight, though Moyer admitted that Robert Pattinson is "just hot, right?"

Anna and Stephen are engaged to be married in real life, which makes their sex scenes and intimate photographs like this one more comfortable to pose for, and after years of working on the series Alexander Skarsgard is right at home up close and personal with the couple. So, what do you think of this naked and bloody shoot — sexy or gross?

I don't think the picture is sexy or gross. Just kinda boring. We see the blood and bodies every week on the show. Nothing new.

Take Bill away and the picture would be WAY more fantastic! It's a great photo, certainly not the first time we have ever seen a someone naked across the front of a magazine that would be in newstands. I love this season! I hated season 2 because of the whole goat head storyline, that was just plain terrible. The only improvements this season needed was more Eric and Sookie! Hope Bill explodes.

I agree with Pheobe! It would be so much better without "Bill." I love True Blood, but Bill really gets on my nerves. :) And the cover is gory, but so is the show. Alan Ball does a brilliant job mixing together humor and drama without taking it too seriously.

jaan_black - you can have an opinion on the show without casting aspersions about the actors like that. Anna Paquin has come out as bisexual but Askars is not gay.

the show sucks @$$ this season, it's not gory - makeup and acting are text book...Bill sounds like he's switched to the Shakespearean method of acting...seriously doubt "Bill" gives a good gosh damn about the gay dude on the left holding his bi-sexual fiances leg lol...seriously

I'm a big fun of True Blood and still i dont like the aesthetics of this particular pic at all. Its not just the blood, its the pose and the shadows etc. Its just cheap, not too hot for me.

Bring it on and more. Love the cover shoot. Love the blood. Love the actors. Love the gore. Of course, Alex is the hottest commodity on the scene right now. How about a photo shoot Rolling Stone with my favorite vampire hottie?

A huge supporter of True Blood and an Eric lover myself..of course I'll love this magazine cover. But yes, I understand the concern because it's pretty risque.

It looks like chocolate syrup to me and even though I don't watch the show or find any of them all that good looking, I will admit their bodies are AMAZING, especially the dude on the left. And being engaged to the guy on the right, I wonder how comfortable it was for the guy on the left - but then again it's hollywood, next week the fiancé will be directing her in a love scene with him and tell her to put more passion into it.

I like it; I know that it's fake blood, and the actors are all hot, therefore I can't complain lol :) I can see why some might think it's a bit much, but they aren't doing anything overly sexual, there are no "parts" showing, other than a bit of skin, and the blood is fake.

Good grief, Rolling Stone must really be in a bad financial straights. A little much me thinks, but not surprising given how far pop culture has circled the drain and how irrelevant publications like this has become. Shock 'em in the grocer aisles boys! Me and the missus were avid fans of this show through Season 2. Loved it. We realize that we are far in the minority but we ended up removing it from the DVR schedule. This season reeks.
