If you aren’t watching True Blood, you are dumb. We know this because up until July we were not watching True Blood, but then we did because our friends made us. And even then, after we got through all of season 1, we were all, “I don’t get why you guys are so into Alexander Skarsgard, he’s weird looking.”
And our friends put their sassy friend fingers in our face and were like, “Girl, trust. In season 2 he’s going to cut his hair and then in season 3 he ties up a stripper and has sex with her and you see his butt move really fast – his tight tight butt – and then there is a BLUE. CASHMERE. SWEATER.”
And now we’ve seen the haircut and the sex and the sweater and we concur: Alexander Skarsgard is the definitive sex god of the 21st century.
But Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer? *Crickets*Fart noise*Sound of a dog sniffing another dog’s butt*
The next time Rolling Stone wants to do a True Blood cover, they should lock the fair lovers in Bill’s cellar sleep room, throw away the step ladder Stephen surely had to stand on to appear almost as tall as Alex, and let that Swede do his thing.
And by ‘thing’ we mean full frontal nudity. Obviously.
Anna Paquin came out as bisexual earlier this year in a PSA. Her video was part of True Colors First’s ”Give a Damn” campaign, which premiered April 1. It attracted so much traffic that wegiveadamn.org had to invest in additional servers to handle the load. She appeared on camera and said, “ I’m Anna Paquin. I’m bisexual, and I give a damn.”
And as far as she’s concerned it was never hush-hush. She told Zap2it.com, “It wasn’t like it was a big secret. It was just a cause I cared about and privately supported, but not one that I had ever had an opportunity to speak out about in a way that would be useful.” She added, “I’m not someone who endlessly talks about her personal life for no reason, but obviously, as someone who identifies as bisexual, those are issues I really care about – and frankly, I don’t see why everyone doesn’t care about them.”
Alan Ball, True Blood‘s boss who is openly gay himself, wasn’t surprised. He said, “I thought that was really brave, and I say ‘good for her’. I like the fact that she doesn’t feel the need to keep that hidden, and she was sort of saying, ‘This is who I am and I am doing this because I want to make a stand for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people, and equal rights for all.”

Sexy vampires – from Twilight to “True Blood” – are taking over the world, and we’ve got the photos to prove it! While VILFs (ya know, vampires I’d like to…) may not be anything new (hello, Brad Pitt in Interview With A Vampire), there’s no denying that lately we’ve been bombarded with movies and TV shows featuring smokin’ hot vamps.
Twilight can easily be given all the credit for the recent surge in vampire lust, with Robert Pattinson at the helm. HBO quickly jumped on the vamp wagon with “True Blood,” the CW followed with “The Vampire Diaries,” and screenwriter Diablo Cody didn’t waste any time parodying the whole obsession by recruiting vixen Megan Fox for Jennifer’s Body. Yep, we’re declaring 2009 the Year of the Fanged.
The last three decades have produced plenty of vampires we’d gladly donate our blood to any day, including Salma Hayek, Aaliyah, and Alexander Skarsgard. Check our picks for Hollywood’s sexiest neck nibblers below.
Twilight vs. “True Blood!” We caught up with Sam Trammell on the Scream Awards red carpet and asked the “True Blood” shape shifter if there was any beef between his HBO vamp show and the uber-popular Twilight movie series (and the up and coming “Vampire Diaries”). While Trammell played nice, he did reveal which fanged posse he thought would kick the other’s ass – but you’ll have to watch to find out!
Earlier this morning we told you about the engagement of True Blood co-stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer. The Oscar-winning starlet wasted no time showing off her brand new bling; Paquin was spotted earlier today flaunting her gorgeous engagement ring to waiting paparazzi while walking her dogs. We love the vintage-y look of her ring – what do you think? [Photo: Splash News Online]

Reps for actors Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer are confirming that the True Blood actors are indeed engaged. The pair met on the set of the HBO series and have been quietly dating since it began. They went public with the relationship in February of this year.
Moyer told TV Guide earlier this year that they kept things quite because, “We didn’t want to take anything away from the show. The show is the star, not the two people having a relationship.” Now though, they are open and honest about it. Said Moyer, “We always take the piss out of each other and are silly with each other and it is great. We’re very, very happy.” We know these days there’s no shortage of vampires out there, but right now, Moyer wins for most adorable undead. [Photo: GettyImages]
