Alexander Skarsgard Happy To Be Naked
'True Blood' star Alexander Skarsgard refuses to cover up his manhood when shooting sex scenes for the series because he is comfortable being nude.
Alexander Skarsgard doesn't cover his manhood when he is shooting sex scenes for 'True Blood'.
The Swedish star - who plays vampire Eric Northman in the hit TV drama - doesn't opt for a modesty saving "sock" like many of his fellow actors and insists he is happy to be nude on set.
He said: "I don't want a sock around it - that feels ridiculous. If we're naked in the scene, then I'm naked. I've always been that way."
However, Alexander's co-star Stephen Moyer - who is engaged to 'True Blood' actress Anna Paquin - does opt for something to cover his appendage.
He said: "I've got nothing to hide. I just think it might be embarrassing for the crew."
Stephen - who plays vampire Bill Compton in the series - thinks one of the main reasons why 'True Blood' is popular is because people find vampires "sexy".
He told Rolling Stone magazine: "If we go from a base level, vampires create a hole in the neck where there wasn't one before. It's a de-virginisation - 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. I think that makes vampires attractive."
