Anna Paquin Talks ‘True Blood' Nudity: ‘I Feel Like Maybe I Should Feel Uptight About It'

As Sookie Stackhouse on HBO's "True Blood," Anna Paquin has found herself in steamy on-screen clinches with series and real life love, Stephen Moyer, who plays gentlemanly vampire, Bill Compton.

But while her "True Blood" trysts often find the actress in various states of undress, the actress said she is entirely comfortable with or without clothing in front of the camera.

"I feel fine," she told AOL Television of her nude scenes. "Although the way that people ask me about it all the time, I feel like maybe I should feel uptight about it. But I really don't."

Anna, an Oscar winner for her role in 1993's "The Piano," said professionalism runs high on the set and the nudity is artfully choreographed.

"I wouldn't do it if it was too much. Everyone's very respectful of the boundaries of whichever actor is doing stuff like that on set," she said. "It's not cameras being thrown anywhere and anything can happen, you know? It's quite choreographed."

And Anna pointed out things can be less stressful for an actor when your on-screen beau is your off-screen love interest as well.

"If you're already with that person then you're not having to sort of get over the 'Wow, I'm naked with someone that I don't even know the middle name of!'" she laughed. "I think that regardless of what kind of scene you're doing, the better you know the person you're working with and the more comfortable you are with them, the more open and real your performance can be. And that goes for stunt scenes and heavy emotional scenes and sex scenes."
