Anna Paquin is a poolside siren in the August issue of Redbook magazine. The “True Blood” star opened up to the glossy about how she landed her role as Sookie and her nude scenes with costar Alexander Skarsgard.
“[For my audition], “I’m a big believer in ‘fake it to make it,’” she revealed. “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.”
When asked about being naked with costars, she continued, “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.”
Luckily for Paquin, she landed the role of a lifetime as waitress Sookie and met the love of her life, husband Steven Moyer, with whom she is expecting her first child. Check out more photos of Anna Paquin in Redbook below.
