With the exception of Justin Long (and his long dong), most actors don't do nude scenes for real. In other words, as Alexander Skargard explains, they do it with a sock on (or in the case of his "True Blood" co-star Anna Paquin), with a patch over her so-called naughty bits.
But as he tells Rolling Stone in that slam-bang awesome interview we told you about the other day, Skarsgard has other ideas for how a nude scene should be performed… whether his co-stars are engaged to other co-stars and his behavior could make them uncomfortable or not.
"I don't want a sock around it, that feels ridiculous. If we're naked in the scene, then I'm naked. I've always been that way.
Stephen Moyer is more modest and opts for a sock but just out of regard for others. "I've got nothing to hide… I just think it might be embarrassing for the crew."
[And PS, as we mentioned before, Alan Ball hates Twilight] "To me, vampires are sex," he said. "I don't get a vampire story about abstinence. I'm 53. I don't care about high school students. I find them irritating and uninformed." [Rolling Stone, via HuffPo]
