Photos of Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Annalynne McCord, Shenae Grimes and Quotes From True Blood Couple in Nylon Magazine TV

Anna, Stephen, and Stars of the Small Screen Party For Nylon

Starlets were out in force last night to celebrate Nylon's special TV issue. 90210's AnnaLynne McCord and Shenae Grimes posed on the carpet, as did Melrose Place's Jenna Dewan. Anna Paquin is the magazine's cover girl, and she was the center of attention as she chatted with her fiance and True Blood costar Stephen Moyer. While his next project is the vampire movie Priest with Cam Gigandet, Stephen and Anna gave an interview appearing in the upcoming issue about their HBO show and their views on nudity and sex. Here's more:

  • Anna on her nude True Blood scenes: "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."
  • Anna on going blonde for her role: "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 on vampire sex: "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 . . . it’s an interesting duality, because in our present society it would be an odd thing for a woman to say, ‘I want my man to be physical with me.’ How, as a modern man, can you f**king work that? It’s one thing to be polite and gentle. . . . 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. . . . I think that’s the attraction of the show – it’s looking back at a romantic time when men were men, but they were still charming."

I love True Blood and I love Anna and Stephen. This season has been AWESOME! I love AnnaLynne's dress and Jenna I love and where the hell have I been to not know she is going to be on Melrose place! I even follow her on Twitter!

I agree with her comment on American culture. I lived in the mid-west for a while and it was incredible how everyone was so sensitive about nudity and sex. But at the same time all the kids at high school were doing it like rabbits and they had a huge problem with teenage pregnancy. I find these contradictions really fascinating.

I so agree with her on the first comment, America is so hypocritical. Violence is ok, but nudity is not? Come on.... I don't get Stephen's comment though, when is it ever "ok" to "rape" someone? And what about that makes someone "a man"? I've never seen True Blood, maybe that's why I'm not getting it... but that just sounded so wrong.
