Ryan Kwanten Talks Modesty Sock, Brother's Coming Out

Posted: Updated:

True Blood star Ryan Kwanten opens up in the new issue of The Advocate about his abs, his younger brother's coming out and why he keeps his love life secret.

See Ryan's 'True Blood' costars Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgard nude on the cover of Rolling Stone here.

Here are some excerpts, read the whole the thing here.

On his brother:
"He's a doctor, so he got every ounce of intelligence in the family. He was probably about 18 when he came out, and I can wholeheartedly tell you that from the day that he did, he was a changed man for the better. The sheer beauty of who he is really came through."

On his family's reaction:
"There was never an issue. My parents always encouraged an open channel of communication, so we talked about that and everything else. That's something lacking in a lot of modern-day families - just talking. It's almost a lost art form."

On whether he auction off his cock sock like costar Stephen Moyer did:
"Well, I've gone through more than one, so there might be a couple out there. I'll have to speak to Audrey, our wardrobe designer, and see if she can track one down. There's quite a collection, actually - one for every mood."
