Does Our Queen Reign Supreme?
Evan Rachel Wood, otherwise known as Queen Sophie-Anne on HBO‘s True Blood, recently attended the premiere of Mildred Pierce. She plays Veda Pierce, eldest daughter of Mildred (played by Kate Winslet). Both actresses looked stunning on the red carpet, but the Huffington Post Style section would like to know who you think was best dressed?
Evan wore head-to-toe plum in a long-sleeved, drapey dress by Elie Saab, strappy peep-toe heels, and perfectly plum lips. Her hair was blonde, which Truebies are not used to, but it looked natural and elegant.
Kate wore a fitted black Stella McCartney dress, also long-sleeved, which was sheer and dotted all down the left side. She opted for a black, single-strap heel. Her makeup was natural, with sheer, nude lips, and she wore her hair up in a simple yet stylish ‘do.
If you’d like to vote in the poll, you may do so by clicking on the link below. Or just tell us in the comments — do you prefer Kate Winslet’s look, or does our Queen reign supreme?

True Blood’s Allan Hyde Movie Premiere:
These photos were taken during the “Exteriors” premiere last Friday night. “Exteriors” is Allan’s latest project done on a shoestring budget in Los Angeles, it premiered in Oslo Norway. The movie details the difficulties in moving from Europe to Los Angeles to seek fame and fortune in the movie industry. This is a subject in which Allan is well-versed. Having splashed into America’s living rooms, with his stellar performance as Godric in HBO‘s hit series True Blood, Allan has struggled to make Los Angeles his new home, seeking new friends and trying to break into the movie business with a Danish accent. Allan is blessed with talent and the freshfaced good looks that Hollywood loves. Hopefully, he’ll get another break soon and we hope to see him back in True Blood; we can’t wait to see him in more shows here in America.
You can watch the interview below:
When Allan was asked about the differences between doing a movie gratis, and acting on True Blood, he said:
“This is something extremely different, but it’s also a super cool
difference, ’cause True Blood is like… Super huge. But it’s that kind
of energy, I think it’s a great energy, and I would much rather have it
done this way, because I have made short films that I have also written,
and tried to get people to be in them, but it’s not the same because every-
one is out for money. I just think it’s a tendency in their culture, that
it’s always a question about money, it’s never ‘well, that could be fun’
or ‘I’ll just do a favor, and I’ll probably get a favor back sometime.’”

Kristin and Abri have a whale of a tale
Kristin Bauer and her husband Abri van Straten recently went on a whale watching tour with the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW). She encourages you to watch the video, go to the IFAW website and see how you can help save and protect whales.
Did you know that there are two kinds of killer whales? There are two major pods of killer whales on the Pacific coast, although they interact with each other. One pod, are fishitarians feeding only off of fish while the other eats seals. While these two pods do come into contact with each other, the whales seem to not interbreed leading scientists to speculate that we are seeing speciation happen.
Whale watching is a profound experience. There is something about these giant beasts with their knowing eyes and tail smacking excitement that is mesmerizing. Dolphins have the same effect on people. The people at Sea World say that humans can’t resist getting close to dolphins moving unintentionally closer even while acknowledging that they can’t touch the dolphins during backstage tours.

Skarsgård Is Tickled Pink about Season Four:
Alexander Skarsgård has confessed in the past to not having any problem whatsoever with nude scenes — thank Godric! The ridiculously hot Swede, who plays the ridiculously hot Viking Sherriff vampire Eric Northman on True Blood, spends a lot of time at the gym sculpting his god-like body into god-like proportions. Given the recent spoiler, we think he’s doing a great job. Even more exciting is to hear that Skarsgård is very much looking forward to donning pink spandex in season four:
“I’m very excited…about the spandex. I hope that will come soon…I might want to go to the gym before the spandex session.”
All of you hardcore Eric Northman fans will know that it’s in book two of the Sookie Stackhouse series that Eric wears the pink leggings to an orgy party. If Alan Ball wants to introduce spandex as part of season four’s wardrobe, we don’t think there will be any objections.

Lindsay Pulsipher and Carrie Preston attend Genesis awards:
TheFashionPatrol.com posted pictures of Lindsay Pulsipher (True Blood’s Crystal Norris) while she attended the 25th Anniversary Genesis Awards in Los Angeles at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel. Lindsay wore a Dalia MacPhee dress from the Spring/Summer ’11 collection. The shoes she wore are charcoal Dana Davis “Alana” heels and she also sported a Badgley Mischka purse. Also in attendance at the awards was fellow True Blood star Carrie Preston (Arlene Fowler) wearing a sexy one-shouldered black dress made by In Add Minus. I think both women look good and made a good choice with what they wore. Let us know what you think of their outfit in the comment section below.

True Blood Panel Highlight of Convention:
The True Blood Q&A Panel featured Brit Morgan (Debbie Pelt), Kristin Bauer van Straten (Pam), and Sam Trammell (Sam Merlotte), answering questions and signing autographs. The price for an autograph from Kristin was between $30-$60.
Kristin has been to conventions in Boston, New York, Atlanta, and the granddaddy of them all, Comic-Con International in San Diego. She finds them refreshing and fun, as working long days on set can be “slow and decidedly unglamorous”. She explains:
“You go to the convention, and all of a sudden you’re a rock star and you get accolades for the whole production. What’s so interesting about it is that you get a real survey of what you shot six months ago that apparently worked.”
By now, she knows what to expect. Fans offer up anything from gifts to favorite quotes from the show. Some are a bit more shy:
“Some people are very quiet. I want to talk — ‘Hi, how ya doing? Where you from?’ And some will kind of giggle and look at the ground and try to get away from me. Then there’s that 2 percent where you’re not really sure what they’re saying.”
It’s awesome that she and the rest of the cast are so generous with their time, and friendly to the fans. It makes us love True Blood even more, don’t you think, Truebies?
