Anna Paquin's 'weird' vampire show nudity

From NZ Herald

Former child actress Anna Paquin admits it is "weird for people" seeing her naked as an adult in True Blood.

The former child actress - who won an Oscar aged 11 for her part in The Piano – doesn't mind baring all for scenes in her steamy US drama series True Blood but understands it is difficult for people to stop thinking of her as a "sweet" young star.

She said: "It's been a gradual evolution for me. It's probably weird for people to watch it and if they have this image of me as a sweet little child, but it's not weird for me.

"My wardrobe is awesome. I'm practically naked the entire time - what's not to love?"

New Zealand-born Anna – who is dating her co-star, Stephen Moyer, who plays vampire Bill Compton in the show – also explained that casting good-looking actors in the show was essential to explain the allure which vampires have.

Certainly this does not apply to me. I never saw "The Piano", and though I've seen all the X-men movies more than once, I never paid any attention particularly to her character. In fact, I had never heard her name until TB came along. So seeing her naked has not seemed strange to me at all.
