Joe Manganiello: Sex With Sookie is Awkward With Her Husband Looking On:
With HBO’s True Blood Season 7 premiere event this week, there has been a glut of information from the stars of the show about what will happen in the final season. Access Hollywood got a chance to talk to Joe Manganiello (who plays Alcide Herveaux) about the new relationship between his character, Alcide, and Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) – and just what it’s like to be directed by Anna’s real life husband, Stephen Moyer (who also stars in True Blood as vampire Bill Compton). When asked whether this situation was awkward or not, his reply was:
Oh course it is… but Stephen and I have such a great friendship and we get along so well together that, you know, we’re professionals. And, obviously, you read that [in the script] and you go “Oh boy, here we go,” but, ah, if we didn’t get along so well together I think it probably could have been weird but it wasn’t.
Stephen Moyer actually has a different take on what it’s like to direct his wife in sex scenes with other actors:
In a funny way, I feel like — without revealing too much — it’s quite interesting for us as a couple because we’ve kind of gone to places where a lot of people don’t get to. And we’re still here. And I think that’s good for us in a way.
he recently told Entertainment Weekly.
And what about Anna Paquin’s take on it? She also had this to say to Entertainment Weekly:
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.
Besides this awkward and unique situation he also has time to talk about his upcoming role in Magic Mike 2 and how he keeps in shape for the show. You can view the entire interview below:
