True Blood Hotties Top List of TV's Best Nude Scenes

By Lewis Wallace December 03, 2008

Paquin_big While True Blood's vampires bare their fangs, the HBO series' female stars are baring something else entirely.

True Blood boasts two of the top 10 nude television scenes of the year, according to a celebrity skin website.

Lizzy Caplan, who plays blood druggie Amy Burley in the sex- and corpuscle-drenched series, tops the list, which was compiled by nudie site Anna Paquin (pictured), who portrays mind-reading waitress Sookie Stackhouse, comes in No. 3.

"All the nudity on TV this year finally made good on the term 'boob tube,'" said website rep Mr. Skin in a press release crowning 2008's hottest nude scenes.

True Blood, based on The Southern Vampire Mysteries books by Charlaine Harris, takes place in a near-future Louisiana in which vampires walk among the living, thanks to synthetic blood and a "vampire rights" movement.

Before her True Blood portrayal of a hippie with a taste for mind-altering vampire blood, Caplan played Marlena in Matt Reeves' creepy creature feature Cloverfield and previously held down lesser roles in Smallville and Freaks and Geeks.

All the winners on's list come from cable television shows like True Blood, Weeds and Californication, which thrive in a world where FCC restrictions don't apply (and clothes and profanity fly). See the complete list of winners -- and sound off on the picks -- after the jump.
