Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer revealing on EW cover



The golden True Blood couple graces the cover of the new Entertainment Weekly of June 27.

EW sat down with Paquin and Moyer at Bellefleur’s, in the very booth where Bill first saw Sookie, for a revealing look back at their bloody good time in Bon Temps. Here’s a brief tease:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Speaking of nudity, in the first ­episode of the new season, Stephen you directed a love scene between your wife and Alcide, played by Joe Manganiello.

STEPHEN MOYER: There are moments where I’ll be watching on a monitor [and say], “Oh, Joe, just move your hand up towards Anna’s breast. Good. And can you move your right thumb just a little bit towards her nipple? Great.” And then I’ll go, “Babe, babe, enjoy it.” I’m certainly talking to her as “babe.” “Darling, go for it. Yeah, feel the nipple.”

MOYER: In a funny way, I feel like — without revealing too much — it’s quite interesting for us as a couple because we’ve kind of gone to places where a lot of people don’t get to.

PAQUIN: Or have to.

MOYER: And we’re still here. And I think that’s good for us in a way.

  1. Thanks for the marvelous tease and the eye-popping cover pic.  I’ll be picking up this EW, that’s for sure. The Q & A with Stephen and Anna should be fun.

  2. I want to know why only Anna is naked. : )
    I’ll be sure to pick up a copy of this as soon as it’s available.

  3. Those are their real life wedding bands… This isn’t supposed to be show canon, it’s just a photo shoot.

  4. I’ve already tweeted a few questions, and can’t wait to get my copies of the mag. The rest of the joint interview should be fab. Is this the first joint print interview that Steve and Anna have done. About time!

  5. Exactly! I’m fine with Anna naked, she has a rockin bod. But why is Stephen so covered up? I want equal nekkid time for all (well, for them).

  6. I love this pic. don’t get me wrong, I wish Stephen was naked too, but I think it’s also cute that he’s fully clothed – in very tight clothes – but barefoot.

  7. That would be my dream ending!!!! I hope TB writers have the balls to go against all the Bill haters and go for the way it should be-Bill and Sookie End game. That is how it started and that is how it should end.

  8. Tots Agree jen .. Love Sam but that was a let down .. Love Alcide , Love Eric but its Bill and Sookie or Bust !

  9. I am green with envy, what’s a girl gotta do for a chance  to rock the box with Bill? I see his fangs but he is way over dressed. What a tease he is.

  10. WHY do people keep complaining because Anna is naked? lol Apparently she does not have an issue with it… ^ ^

  11. Love the cover and I do agree with the comments, Stephen is overdressed.
    The twitter session sounds fun, I will try to follow.

  12. She has a ring on for the photo shoot , I know there married in real life but she’s single on the show! hope this means she’s bills bride this season!!

  13. I’d like to see Sookie not being surrounded/ protected by men all the time, she was never a victim in the books, so why now? Sookie was a much stronger character in the books, stronger than all the men characters, I’d like TB to explore that. And in the end if she’s alone, wouldn’t that be okay. Besides I don’t see how there’ll be a Bill/ Eric & Sookie ending, she explicitly said she would rather die than be turned into a vampire, I think it would be horrible for her to be turned against her will, and ridiculiously out of character for her to change her mind. If she’s human, she’ll age, Bill/Eric never will. Sookie needs her picket fence ending, just not in the conventional way, they need to explore beyond which suitor she ends up with, if any.
