Actress Anna Paquin has stripped off for a quirky Entertainment Weekly coffin cover shoot with her husband and True Blood co-star Stephen Moyer.

Fully-clothed Moyer dons his fangs as vampire Bill Compton in the sexy shot as naked Oscar winner Paquin lies next him, carefully positioned to cover up her breasts and other sensitive body parts.

In the accompanying interview, Moyer reveals what it was like directing an episode of the drama, in which co-star Joe Manganiello has a love scene with Paquin.

He says, "There are moments where I'll be watching the monitor (and say), 'Oh, Joe, just move your hand up towards Anna's breast. And can you move your thumb just a little bit towards her nipple? Great'. And then I'll go, 'Babe, babe, enjoy it'."

Paquin adds, "It's not as awkward as you would think. If you were to picture the perfect day at work for your spouse, would that be it? Probably not, but this is just kind of how it's always been. So it doesn't feel as bizarre."

Paquin and Moyer wed in 2010 and they are parents to twins Poppy and Charlie.
