Anna Paquin: Male co-stars shy about nudity

Anna Paquin says her male co-stars are more concerned about nude scenes than women are.

The actress claimed the True Blood boys - including her husband Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgård - are sensitive about showing off their bodies because they aren't used to being seen as objects of sexual desire.

The blonde star isn't fazed by stripping off in front of a camera.

"The boys are just a bit touchier about it because they are not used to being treated as an object, like women are. We don't really care - we are half-naked almost all the time anyway, aren't we?" she told German publication Spiegel.de.

Anna will miss True Blood producer Alan Ball, who will have a less hands-on role on the show after season five.

The 29-year-old joked that Alan has a lot of sleep to catch up on having been heavily involved in the programme since before its 2008 launch.

"This is his opus. To be fair, the man hasn't slept a lot over the last years," she said. "We need to face the truth: we are at our peak, but at some point even this superb show will come to its end."
