Christmas came early for thousands of squeeing True Blood fangirls this year- first in the form of a naked Rolling Stone cover featuring a blood-spattered Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgard.
Then a widely circulated snippet from the article began circulating, wherein the sexy Swede who plays Eric Northman admits he could give a frick about modesty on the set, unlike co-star Moyer, who hides his junk in a sock. While Paquin relies on “patches” to maintain a modicum of clothedness, Skarsgard says he doesn’t care who sees his johnson:
Alexander Skarsgard goes sockless. “I don’t want a sock around it, that feels ridiculous,” he told the magazine. “If we’re naked in the scene, then I’m naked. I’ve always been that way.”
Stephen Moyer is more modest and opts for a sock but just out of regard for others. “I’ve got nothing to hide,” he said. “I just think it might be embarrassing for the crew.”
God bless Europeans and their free-wheeling, penis-exposing ways.
