The newly blonde New Zealander Anna Paquin stars as Sookie Stackhouse, a telepathic waitress at a Louisiana diner who falls into the clutches of bloodsucker Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer).
The Post caught up with the sexy star in LA yesterday…
Q: Why do you think people are so fascinated with vampires?
AP: Because they are sexy. They are dangerous. What girl doesn’t like a bad boy?
Q: You have some sexy outfits on the show…
AP: My wardrobe is awesome! I am practically naked the entire time. What is not to love? [laugh] And they give me this nice spray tan, so I feel like I am sort of wearing an extra layer of clothing that is actually not really there. I feel quite naked actually. Or I did. I bought a lot of little tiny shorts to wear around on set.
Q: How do you stay in shape?
AP: I work out. I go to the gym. I run. I box. I do Pilates. I take dance classes. And I am now learning to skateboard, which is actually a lot harder than it looks.
Q: Where are you living these days?
AP: Well, I am not living in New York where I have been living for the past 8 years because my lease was up. So now I am staying out here (in LA). But I am kind of… a gypsy!
Q: Where is your Oscar now that you are a gypsy?
AP: It is at my brothers house… I think. [laughs]
Q: Are you attracted to the bad boy, like the vampire, in real life? What’s your type?
AP: I don’t have a type. I like smart people. Nice people. Good people.
Q: Is the blonde hair helping you find someone like that?
AP: I do okay for myself. [laughs]
