The only reason women will have sex with them is that sex is the price they are willing to pay for a relationship with a man, which is what they want. Of course, a lot of women will deny this and say, 'Oh no, but I love sex, I love it!' But do they go around having it the way that gay men do?"

All the Boys Love Anna Paquin

Now Playing
You probably never suspected it while watching tiny 11 year old Anna Paquin hyperventilate with Oscar in hand in March of 1994 that she would one day become such an emblem of romantic envy on screens. Firs there was her touch deprived Rogue in the X-Men series, dreaming of the kind of soapy relationships all the other mutants were enjoying. These days she has unbelievably hot naked vampires fighting over her on magazine covers. And in THE ROMANTICS, Katie Holmes wants to trade places with her because she's nabbed Josh Duhamel. Not bad for a gap toothed girl with a grating voice (I kid. I'll always have a soft spot for the star, The Piano being only one of the greatest movies ever made.) I can't recommend The Romantics, though, which I caught at Sundance. Paquin aside, the movie about post collegiate friends coupling off, is hampered by bizarre casting: Josh Duhamel and Katie Holmes as poetry and philosophy loving intellectuals? Er...

Also Opening: Sexy Romain Duris and Mrs. Johnny Depp Vanessa Paradis star in the French romantic comedy HEARTBREAKER; Milla Jovovich is still fighting zombies in RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE. Maybe she's not very good at it since she's been trying to defeat them for eight years now.; Casey Affleck's celebrity studded documentary (mockumentary?) I'M STILL HERE follows Joaquin Phoenix's surreal career immolation as it happens.

Alexander Skarsgard: 'I Don't Want a Sock Around It' for Nude Scenes

Skarsgard

While Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin wear a "sock" and a "patch", respectively, while filming nude scenes for True Blood, Alexander Skarsgard tells Rolling Stone that he won't wear anything:

"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."

And we'll keep seeing it according to creator Alan Ball: "To me, vampires are sex. 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."

Skars  In related news, Pretty on the Outside offers up an alternate three-way male Rolling Stone cover.

Also in related news, I doubt anyone had a sock around it in this scene from Skarsgard's Swedish film The Dog Trick, AFTER THE JUMP...

Van
Carlton made the announcement during a performance at Nashville Pride yesterday. Said the singer, "I've never said this before, but I am a proud bisexual woman." Just a few months ago, Anna Paquin also came out as bisexual.

Good for Carlton for not only bravely coming out but for choosing to do so in front of her fans during Pride month.

News: Andy Bell, Helen Thomas, Mt. Rainier, Modern Family

 road Jake Gyllenhaal gets caffeinated in LA.

Jake  road Andy Bell on experiencing his first dose of ageism: "I saw this guy, turns out he was 24, and I went up to him and said 'you are stunningly good-looking.' And he says, 'I thought you used to be good-looking when you were in Erasure.' And I thought, I still AM in Erasure. Then he went on to say that he really only likes to have sex with people his own age. I have never been an ageist person. My tastes are open to all men, I like all ages, all races, all kinds. I remember thinking is it me, and the fact that I am 45, or is the issue with this kid?"

 road Miley Cyrus promises you that she did not kiss a girl on Britain's Got Talent earlier this week.

 road Foot in mouth: Helen Thomas sorry for saying Jews should "get the hell out of Palestine" and "go back home to Poland, Germany, America and everywhere else."

 road Anna Paquin on coming out as bisexual earlier this year: "It wasn't like it was a big secret. It was just a cause I cared about and privately supported, but not one that I had ever had an opportunity to speak out about in a way that would be useful. Obviously I know that one person's voice doesn't necessarily do that much, but I just wanted to do my bit."

 road NY Times columnist Charles Blows explains why heterosexual men are becoming increasingly accepting of gays. One theory: "Virulent homophobes are increasingly being exposed for engaging in homosexuality...In fact, there is a growing body of research that supports the notion that homophobia in some men could be a reaction to their own homosexual impulses. Many heterosexual men see this, and they don’t want to be associated with it. It’s like being antigay is becoming the old gay. Not cool."

 road Ed O'Neill on the controversy surrounding the lack of affection between Modern Family's gay couple: "Oh, that's so stupid. Who cares? When I hear that, it's half amusing, half annoying. First of all, they're the most conservative family of the three. Mitchell is a lawyer, and Cameron is a stay-at-home mom with a baby."
