Speaking at the Entertainment Tonight/PEOPLE Emmy party after Sunday's big event, Ryan Kwanten – the hottie who plays dumb-as-a-rock but well-meaning Bon Temps good ol' boy Jason Stackhouse on HBO's True Blood – said he may have been the only person not to have figured out that his costars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer were in a relationship.
"I'm always the last to know. My ear is not very close to the ground," he said. "Stephen actually had to come up to me and tell me. He said, 'Ryan I know you're not really up with the gossip side of things. but before you hear from anyone else, we've been dating for the last 10 months.' "
But Kwanten, 32, said it made perfect sense once he did know.
"They just know who they are," he said. "There are no facades or egos. They are just down-to-earth people."
On the show, Kwanten's character is the brother of Paquin's character, one who often tries (and fails) to act as a caring older brother. Kwanten said feels like a friend more than a brother to Paquin in real life, but that he's confident Moyer will make a fine husband.

He's even already got the perfect wedding gift picked out.
"I guess [I'd give them] privacy," he said. "I'd just wave my magic wand."
