Anna Paquin says her husband is completely comfortable watching her sex scenes with Alexander Skarsgard.
The 29-year-old actress, is married to Stephen Moyer - who is her True Blood co-star - and says that the two men are friends which makes it easier.
"We feel completely comfortable together. Everyone is very respectful of each other's boundaries ... They're all very gentlemanly about it," she said.
Anna, who plays Sookie Stackhouse in the show, met Stephen, who plays vampire Bill Compton, on the set of the program. Their characters were also lovers, but later split up on screen.
Anna - who is pregnant with twins - admitted that she has two sides to her personality and although she will be a maternal parent, she may also get urges to run away with her family: "I have a side that's very nesty. And another that thinks, 'Let's lock up the house and go away for five months.'"
With nearly just a month to go until the new season of True Blood returns, the showrunners continue to offer up even more delectable teasers on their YouTube page.
In the latest upload, Christopher Meloni of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit fame is unveiled as an upcoming vampire performing some type of ritual. IMDB lists his character as Roman, but the clip seems to indicate that he's also known as the Vampyr (we all know how important he must be if he spells the word in an exotic way). The all-important vampyr combined with the robes and dungeon setting gives me a bit of the Twilight Volturi vibe.
True Blood season 5 premieres on June 10.

Just when you thought that True Blood couldn't get any better... they hire Taylor Swift! Well, her vocal talents, anyway.
The country pop singer's track "Haunted," has been confirmed by the show's music supervisor Gary Calamar that it will appear on tomorrow's episode of the hit vampire show, "Run."
Calamar wouldn't divulge the juicy details as to which scene the Speak Now track will play to, but he did reveal that it's "a racy, sexy scene." Given the star's squeaky clean image, Swift's team initially prohibited the song from the episode's soundtrack; however, Taylor stepped in herself and said otherwise.
As for the last episode -- titled "And When I Die" -- Calamar offered some insight as to whom the title may or may not refer to: "Vampires don't really die, so I'll say it's not a vampire. They won't face the true death. But some of our main characters do run into a little bad luck in the final episode."

-Spike TV’s Deadliest Warrior—a show that pits historical fighters against each other—is being adapted for the big screen. The details surrounding Paramount’s project have not been revealed.
Although True Blood is set in Louisiana and Mad Men is set in New York, the two shows do have one locale in common: Sesame Street.
Last year, the famous PBS series parodied the advertising execs from Madison Avenue in an emotional sketch. Now, the
grouches of Bon Temps will get their turn in the spotlight in a segment titled “True Mud.” (Make sure to keep an eye out for Lafayette!)
Season 41 of Sesame Street will kick off on September 27.

- Bachelor Pad (ABC, 8pm): Series debut. “The Bachelor and The Bachelorette meet Big Brother in this elimination contest, in which 19 castoffs from the ABC dating games face weekly challenges while living under the same roof.

“Everybody on set now gets to see what goes on behind closed doors. We leave nothing to the imagination! [Laughs] But our love scenes actually work really well. Since the crew knows we do have chemistry and are together in real life, I feel like it takes away from the nerve-racking tension that can occur when people have to watch two actors who are just getting to know each other engage in an intimate scene.”
-True Blood‘s Stephen Moyer on filming love scenes with his Anna Paquin, his real-life fiancee.

The road to the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards officially kicked off early this morning. Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara (who received a nod) and Community‘s Joel McHale (who didn’t) were the ones who had the honor of reading this year’s list of nominees.
Although Mad Men - with 17 nominations - once again topped off all dramas, 30 Rock didnot
lead the comedies. Glee did. The freshman FOX series raked in a total of 19 noms, only a handful short of the overall leader. (HBO’s miniseries, The Pacific, received 24 mentions.) 30 Rock did receive 15 nominations, though, while Modern Family followed closely behind with 14.
The August 29 ceremony - which NBC will air live on both the East and West coasts - will be hosted by Jimmy Fallon. You can see a partial list of nominees after the jump.
