In the midst of the fifth season of her hit HBO series "True Blood", Anna Paquin garnered herself a little added exposure by covering the August 2012 of REDBOOK magazine.
The 29-year-old actress looked summertime stylish for the Matt Jones shot front page while dishing about everything from her impending motherhood to her steamy scenes with Alexander Skarsgard on "True Blood".
Highlights from Miss Paquin's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to REDBOOK!
On embracing motherhood:
“I have a side that’s very nesty, and another that thinks, ‘Let’s lock up the house and go away for five months.’”
On how she landed the role of Sookie on True Blood:
“I’m a big believer in ‘fake it to make it’. I went out and bought some incredibly short shorts and a push-up bra that I knew were going to be a part of my new life. It’s not that I’m a prude, but I’m not a massive exhibitionist, either.”
On her image:
“I’m my harshest critic…but at a certain point, you need to embrace who you are and the whole package that comes along with it. For me, it was cutting myself some slack and not trying to be something that I think is perfect or ideal.”
On steamy scenes with Alexander Skarsgard on True Blood:
“We feel completely comfortable together. Steve and Alex are buddies. Its nothing like, ‘Oh, hi, nice to meet you. Now let’s take off our clothes and go into the fog.’ Everyone is very respectful of each other’s boundaries…They’re all very gentlemanly about it.”
