Skaarsgard, Paquin, Moyer nude on 'Rolling Stone' cover
The cover of the Sept. 2 issue of Rolling Stone is heavy on blood and guts -- at least, the guts underneath all the nudity on display from the cast of True Blood. This is way more provocative than anything Lady Gaga could do on the mag.
Alexander Skaarsgard (Eric), Anna Paquin (Sooki) and Stephen Moyer (Bill) took it all off to put on a show for the new ish, which hits the stands Wednesday. It's a tribute to the unabashed sexuality on the show, which is a counterpoint to that Twilight nonsense, True Blood creator Alan Ball insists. "To me, vampires are sex," he says. "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."
Hear, hear; Hence, this enlightened follow-up from Moyer: "If we go from a base level, vampires create a hole in the neck where there wasn't one before. It's a de-virginization — breaking the hymen, creating blood and then drinking the virginal blood. And there's something sharp, the fang, which is probing and penetrating and moving into it. So that's pretty sexy. I think that makes vampires attractive," Moyer says, adding that Twilight gets one thing right. "Plus, Robert Pattinson is just hot, right?"
