Anna Paquin Covers 'Redbook' August 2012

Anna Paquin Covers 'Redbook' August 2012

Anna Paquin graces the cover of Redbook‘s August issue, on newsstands July 10.

Here’s what the 29-year-old actress – who’s reportedly expecting twins – had to share:

On embracing motherhood: “I have a side that’s very nesty, and another that thinks, ‘Let’s lock up the house and go away for five months.’”

On how she landed the role of Sookie on True Blood: “I’m a big believer in ‘fake it to make it’. I went out and bought some incredibly short shorts and a push-up bra that I knew were going to be a part of my new life. It’s not that I’m a prude, but I’m not a massive exhibitionist, either.”

On her image: “I’m my harshest critic … but at a certain point, you need to embrace who you are and the whole package that comes along with it. For me, it was cutting myself some slack and not trying to be something that I think is perfect or ideal.”

On steamy True Blood scenes with Alexander Skarsgard: “We feel completely comfortable together. [My husband Stephen Moyer] and Alex are buddies. Its nothing like, ‘Oh, hi, nice to meet you. Now let’s take off our clothes and go into the fog.’ Everyone is very respectful of each other’s boundaries…They’re all very gentlemanly about it.”

  • Chiara

    She┬┤s so pretty, and her tooth gap just maker her cuter

  • Lia

    I really like that girl ! She is just getting better and better :D
    I know that filming those scene with someone else would have been aakward !

  • lori

    They certainly photoshopped some of the unique-ness out of her face. Which is really too bad. I’m getting tired of photo shopped covers! Most of the time you can’t even recognize who’s on a cover anymore.

  • hope

    Photoshopped or not (of course it is) it is still a lovely picture of her. Not all girls can pull of blond hair and dark eyes but she does it very well.

  • Linda

    Beautiful cover!

  • Sharon

    I find her to be very inauthentic. She is as bisexual as I am Bin Laden’s twin sister. Phony to the MAX.

  • Mel

    Big congratulations for the twins!!! She’s looking great these days.

  • Courtney

    magazines have been photoshopped for decades it’s nothing new get over it and most stars just have to deal with it or not be in magazines

  • Eric

    @Courtney: Yes, magazines have been photoshopped for decades, but these days they photoshop so much that it doesn’t even look like the celeb anymore. Most of these celeb don’t even need all the photoshop that these magazines seem to do. Photoshop here and there is expected, but these days they just photoshop every single thing to the point where the person looks totally fake. It’s dumb if you ask me.

  • Eva

    @Sharon: How you do know she’s not really bi? You should patent that ‘bi’-dar if you’re so good.

  • Strange

    Beautiful cover . I love Anna wish her & her family nothing but the best .. Plus can’t wait to see the beautiful babies as well . They are a gorgeous couple .
