Their 'True Blood' characters Bill and Sookie just got engaged, and Stephen Moyer opens up about his relationship with real-life fiancee Anna Paquin in a new interview in Redbook. The magazine's press release follows, read the whole story here.
On his onscreen chemistry with fiancee Anna Paquin:
"Everybody on set now gets to see what goes on behind closed doors. We leave nothing to the imagination! 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."
On the moment he knew Anna Paquin was "the one":
"It was when I was away from her. When we were filming the pilot, we were the only two actors who didn't live in Los Angeles, so we ended up going to dinner almost every night. When we finished filming, I went to London and she went to New York, and it felt so weird not to talk to her. So we began Skyping and have been together ever since!"
On what he's learned about women from Anna:
"Men would much rather run away than talk about stuff, and my default setting has always been, If you have an argument, walk out the door. Anna's brilliant: She won't let me walk away....The main thing that Anna has taught me is absolute transparency and honesty and truth. Even if you know that what you'll say will hurt a woman's feelings, I've learned that it's better to be truthful with her than it is to cover up. Ultimate honesty is what a relationship is really about."
