Anna Paquin Covers 'Manhattan' June 2013

Anna Paquin Covers 'Manhattan' June 2013

Anna Paquin shows off some of her bra under a blazer on the cover of Manhattan magazine’s June 2013 issue.

Here’s what the 30-year-old True Blood actress had to share with the mag:

On the new season of True Blood: “Things left off in a pretty serious place in regards to where Eric and I leave Bill having just turned into this creature of the blood with these monster fangs—and who the hell knows what that is? So obviously, that situation has to [play] out. And we have new cast members this year, and that’s always fun to have fresh blood, if you’ll pardon the pun. This season, the writers and I have been making a concerted effort to help Sookie grow up, become a little bit darker, more accepting of her fate, more self-knowing.”

On her career: “I’ve been really blessed, I’ve never really been drawn to things because I wanted to be famous or huge or anything. I’d rather do one day’s work on a movie that is really creatively interesting than be in every single frame of something that I find a little dull. I feel like that guided my choices a lot and I’ve consequently been drawn to people who, in the best possible way, kind of kicked my ass, because I didn’t want to be the weak link.”

On growing up in the industry: “I mean, it’s a pretty bizarre and awesome thing to happen to a small child living in New Zealand. It consistently, sort of implausibly, has afforded me enormous opportunities and opened a door for me that probably wouldn’t have opened otherwise. I’m very grateful, but it’s just kind of part of the texture of my childhood. That was 20 years ago.”

    @Kristen: ??? Why would you say that? I don’t think SM was with anybody when they met and I know she was single. If anything, SM has two children by two different women before he even met AP.

  • Reba

    She looks fantastic as a blonde!

  • TC

    LOVE Sookie! Fantastic cover shot! And no, she’s not a home wrecker Kristen. Anna and Stephen first met on the set of True Blood and fell in love. They were both single at the time. Anyone who saw the first few seasons of True Blood cannot deny their chemistry together. According to a print interview with Stephen, he and his former girlfriend broke up in 2006 due to the distance, as she lives in London, while Stephen was always working in LA. By the time True Blood began filming in early 2008, Stephen and Lorien were no longer together.
