Move Over Edward...

Lately I've been obsessed with True Blood. Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgård make for a pair of hot hot hot vampires. But what makes this different from Twilight, at least for me, is the leading lady, Anna Paquin, aka Sookie Stackhouse. I must say her role in this show is so much better than on X-Men. And her character is much more likeable than that of Bella from Twilight. So what exactly is this obsession with vampires? In a recent interview with Anna Paquin, she provides the perfect explanation for this sensation that's sweeping the hearts of tweens, teens, and all other women across the world.

“The thing about vampirism is that it taps into a female point of view – you have an old-fashioned gentleman with manners who is a fucking killer… it’s an interesting duality, because in our present society it would be an odd thing for a woman to say, ‘I want my man to be physical with me.’ How, as a modern man, can you fucking work that? It’s one thing to be polite and gentle… But when do you know it’s OK to crawl out of the mud and rape her [as Bill does in one scene]?... It’s difficult stuff for a bloke, but a vampire gets away with it…. I think that’s the attraction of the show – it’s looking back at a romantic time when men were men, but they were still charming.”

I loved her interview and her photos. And it helps that she's wearing all my favorite designers...
