‘True Blood’ Does Naked ‘Rolling Stone’ Cover

Is it getting warm in here, or is that the cold chill of terror that we’re feeling? It’s hard to tell with the latest issue of Rolling Stone, which features True Blood castmates Alexander Skarsgard, Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin naked and blood-splattered on the cover.

The accompanying interview is similarly revelatory, with Moyer—Paquin’s real-life fiancé as well as co-star—offering his own theory on the enduring sex appeal of vampires:

“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…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…Plus, Robert Pattinson is just hot, right?”

He sure is. Perhaps he should take his clothes off too, it might help him cool off a little. The True Blood issue of Rolling Stone is on sale Wednesday. In the meantime, share your thoughts on the cover with us in the comments section.
