Stephen Moyer Loves Directing His True Blood Costars Naked

Originally posted 06/13/2013 04:00PM

Stephen Moyer has been stripping down for years on True Blood. But for some episodes of the new season, he was in charge of getting his costars naked, too – and found that just as enjoyable.

"It was a lot of fun doing three hours of makeup and getting into complete red-blob land, and then directing my fellow actors naked. That was a lot of fun," Moyer said Tuesday at the HBO vampire show's season 6 premiere at Hollywood's Cinerama Dome at the Arclight.

Moyer, 43, who tries his hand at directing this season – which kicks off Sunday (9 p.m. ET) – says he's very understanding with the other actors when it comes to the pressure of baring all for the cameras.

Sarah Jessica Parker Shops for Her Twins in Cincinnati

Sarah Jessica Parker and True Blood's Alfre Woodard stepped out in Cincinnati on Saturday to campaign for President Barack Obama – but Parker managed to squeeze in a little shopping, too.

The actresses – who were encouraging women to vote in the upcoming election – stopped into Sloane Boutique in Over-the-Rhine, Ohio.

"Sarah was so nice and so pleasant to be around," the boutique's owner tells PEOPLE. "Very humble and very down-to-earth."

The I Don't Know How She Does It actress tried on Veda leather jackets and bought some bracelets for her twin daughters, Loretta and Tabitha.

"She told me she couldn't wait to come back and shop again," the boutique owner added.

VIDEO: Is Lindsay Lohan a Convincing Elizabeth Taylor?

Lindsay Lohan Acts Up a Storm as Elizabeth Taylor (Video)

As the most famous celebrity couple of the '60s – if not the 20th century – Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were known as the "Battling Burtons" during their two tumultuous marriages and divorces.

Now, Lindsay Lohan, who has been known to face some battles of her own, is assaying the role of the violet-eyed, little-girl-voiced beauty who captured the hearts of millions, to say nothing of that of the lusty Welshman who could always act rings around his costars. (Watch the trailer below.)

Just how well LiLo comes off as La Liz, and True Blood's Grant Bowler as Dick, can be sampled in a 30-second trailer for the Lifetime TV movie Liz & Dick.

True Blood Cookbook Serves Up Bloody Good Bites

Originally posted 08/26/2012 12:45PM

True Blood fans worried about going through withdrawal after the season finale Sunday can cope with their vampire blues in the kitchen: A new cookbook, True Blood: Eats, Drinks and Bites from Bon Temps, featuring food inspired by the fantastical HBO show, is out Aug. 29 – and People.com has an early look at some of the recipes.

Marcelle Bienvenu, a culinary school teacher and cookbook author in Louisiana, developed the Southern-style recipes for the book with help from the producers of the vampire saga.

"I like the references they make to food on the show and I'm happy that the referenced food is authentic," says Bienvenu. "Developing and testing the recipes was a great adventure."

The cookbook has cocktails inspired by the show's vampire bar Fangtasia, Southern staples served at Merlotte's and home cooking favorites like Lettie Mae Daniel's Hoecakes and Jessica Hamby's Chicken-Fried Love with Gravy.

Joe Manganiello Talks True Blood's Wacky Sex Scenes

The only thing tighter than their lips are their abs, but the cast of True Blood let a few spoilers slip Saturday during a panel at Comic-Con – and it looks like Bon Temps is in store for a particularly steamy summer.

"I sexually eviscerate another cast member in one of the episodes coming up," werewolf hunk Joe Manganiello revealed, after showing off his body-rolling skills to the packed room of thousands of fans.

But the lucky lady in question may not be Anna Paquin's Sookie Stackhouse, who got hot and heavy with Manganiello's Alcide Herveaux earlier this season.
