Anna Paquin in a tight short red dress at Comic-Con: cute or put it away?

Anna Paquin worked a very tight, very short v-neck red dress with zippers up the side at the Comic-Con panel for True Blood on Friday. She looked great and I wish she would get it right like this on the red carpet. Maybe she should have thought twice before crouching down though.


The True Blood Comic-Con panel was large and featured nine of the lead actors including creator Alan Ball, Kristin Bauer (Pam), Alexander Skarsgard (Eric), Kevin Alejandro (Jesus), Nelsan Ellis (Lafayette), Deborah Ann Woll (Jessica), Ryan Kwanten (Jason), Rutina Wesley (Tara), Stephen Moyer (Bill) and Anna Paquin (Sookie.) You can watch the Comic-Con True Blood session in five parts on YouTube and here are some of the better excerpts, with more at the source.


Potential Spoilers

How do you feel about Sookie losing her innocence?
Anne Paquin: There is part of here that is sweet and innocent, and another part that has very dirty vampire sex with possibly multiple vampires.

Since the memory erasing incident, we’ve seen a lighter Eric. Do you like playing him?
Alexander Skarsgard: Yes

Why does he forget to wear shirts? And what’s with that outfit he wears?
Skarsgard: Sookie finds me in the woods. And when she finds me, she dresses me. It’s something she found at her house. Where did that come from, Alan?
Ball: If you translate the spell, it will say “You will lose your shirt, but find a dorky outfit that you will wear for several episodes but still be insanely hot.”

First you have weird head-twisting sex, than you have sex with your great, great, great granddaughter. What’s up with that?
Moyer: If Bill did a little work at the library, she could have figured out who she was. They will see each other again, but Bill has bigger fish to fry.

Is Lafayette along for the ride with the witches because of Angel, or does he believe?
Nelsan Ellis: He loves the dude. He didn’t want to step out into the supernatural.

Tara’s transformation from victim to kicking ass and taking no prisons. What do you think of the evolution to lesbian cage fighter?
Rutine Wesley: I love MMA. I think Tara was sideswiped by love and didn’t know what happened. I think it’s awesome that she’s happy and smiling.

Ryan, tell us about being strapped to the bed and ritualistically raped?
Ryan Kwanten: It’s interesting for an actor when all you have to use is your face, especially for Jason who is a physical type of guy. It’s strange for him, especially being called “Ghost Daddy.”

We all know what happens when a person drinks vamp blood, so what will happen when Jason drinks Jessica’s blood?
Deborah Ann Woll: We all know what happens, but it’s more interesting on what happens when it wears off.

What do you think of Pam’s “face off” with Marnie?
Kristin Bauer van Straten: We work hard to make you squeamish. It’s very physical. I was told to “find the hole in my face and push up.” Only on “True Blood” will you get that kind of direction.

Will Eric remember what happened with Sookie?
Alan Ball: That moment if it comes, if you know it is coming, it won’t be as good. So, maybe.

Bill and Sookie be together again?
Anna Paquin: It will be a complicated road back. It’s impossible for me to call that one.
Moyer: There are only so many telepathic waitresses in town. It’s not like I can just move on to the next one.

What is up with creepy baby doll and Arlene’s baby?
Moyer: I was with Alan when he looked at the set for Jessica and Hoyt’s house, and he said, “This is a great place for that baby to be born. There is something not right about that baby.”

Will fans get the infamous “shower scene” from the books?
Ball: There will be a moment where Sookie and Eric are in a shower. It won’t be exactly like the books. It might be weirder and dirtier.

What are your favorite moments of this season?:
Ball: I like the ritualistic rape of Jason Stackhouse
Kwanten: Me too. It was a bizarre sense of therapy.
Wesley: The cage fighting
Skarsgard: I enjoyed the swimming in the sun.

Spoilers for last night’s episode of True Blood
Last night’s True Blood was decent but the show has kind of lost its luster for me. It seems to be meandering a lot lately and there are quite a few plot lines that bore me. I’m also kind of tired of the constant dream sequences. The Jason explained to Hoyt how he was systematically raped in Hot Shot was almost as if the writers were trying to justify it. I found that explanation more disturbing than those scenes. It’s telling that Alan Ball says that’s his favorite part of this season. The potential romance between Jason and Jessica is very promising, though. I’m looking forward to that as much as I am to Sookie and Eric finally getting it on.

How drunk do Alex Skarsgard and Stephen Moyer look?

Also, Deborah Ann Woll’s outfit is adorable. She’s so pretty.

    Wow how beautiful is Deborah Ann Woll, her eyes piercing or what

  2. Quest says:

    What is up with her knee in the second pic?

  3. constance says:

    Zippers. Messy hair. No/bad make-up. Dress that washes out whatever figure she has. Chunky mesh shoes.

    Just look in the mirror, think about your venue, and say no! to whatever your “stylish” husband tells you to wear as he faps to Skar’s gifs in the next room.

  4. mimi says:

    I think Anna looks like she is trying too hard to look cool and hip. She’s got nice body but this dress is not a good look for her because it accentuates how flat she is in her upper body.

  5. LisaMarie says:

    I know in one of the previous posts there’s a lot of commenting about Bar’s bangin bod, but Anna’s body is the one I aspire to. She works hard for that body. I mean, look at her butt! That is not a butt one gets by sitting and eating cheetos all day.

    EDIT: I’d keep my boobs though. I’ve definitely got a better rack than she does.

  6. Gossip Owl says:

    There needs to be a casual wear only rule at next year’s comic con.

  7. Cherry says:

    Agree with 5.LisaMarie. Great ass! What’s with the face, though? I always like how she looks in movies, but on these pics… Is she just not that photogenic?

  8. Nat says:

    Alex shouldn’t be growing a beard. Only few men can grow a beard and he’s defo not one of them.

  9. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    I love the dress. Anna looks hawt, they all do.

    *Spoilers, I guess

    How can you think the show is meandering?!?!? Its sooo good. I absolutely love Marnie. The witches storyline is soo awesome. OMG the look on Bill’s face when Pam said what she said…OMG soo excited for Sunday.

    Yea the rape thing was hard to watch. I hated that storyline. Hated it. I think most victims of rape at first try to blame themselves…so thats how I took Jason’s conversation with Hoyt. He was just blaming himself for getting in that situation.

  10. lucy2 says:

    I do think maybe Anna is not as photogenic – she looks very pretty on film in the show, but a bit less so in still shots.
    DAW is really gorgeous, especially on the show.
    Really, Alan and Ryan both liked THAT particular scene the best so far? Yuck. It bothered me quite a bit.

  11. Jen34 says:

    Anna looks okay. A dress that short seems inappropriate.

    Deborah Ann Woll is beautiful. She should get a cosmetic contract. Her face is radiant.

    Except for the first season of TB, there are always story lines I can’t stand and characters they waste too much time on.

    Alan Ball seems to really have a hard on for Bill/Stephen Moyer. If you watch the panel, he seems shocked that people booed when he mentioned a Bill/Sookie reunion. I think that Eric/Alex is not his type, and he can’t understand all the love for Eric.

  12. Isa says:

    She really isn’t photogenic. I don’t think she has a pretty face at all but she def looks better on the show to me than she does in many of her candids. I also think it has to do with the angle the pictures were taken at.

    Her dress and body looks great. Her booty in particular looks amazing. I really need to work on mine after this baby is born. I’d like it to look like that!

  13. LisaMarie says:

    @Jen34: Comic-con has a little bit looser definition of appropriate I think. This woman was “dressed” as Daenarys from GoT:

    Definitely NSFW!

  14. Maritza says:

    It looks like she has a scar on her knee, I have one just like it. She looks pretty although the dress is kind of tight but she and her husband really like a loving couple.
    On a side note I think this is worthy of some news: Adrianne Curry was kicked out of Comic Con.

  15. The Original Ashley says:

    Don’t know how I feel about the show anymore. It’s gotten so out of hand I can’t take it seriously tbh. It’s too camp. I kind of wish Ball would find something else to do because I feel like he and his hard on for Moyer are killing the show.

    I’m a HUGE fan of the books though so I may just be biased. There really wasn’t a need to change them. Had Ball improved on them (for instance I do like Jessica and liked having Lala around) it wouldn’t be bad but either his ego won’t allow him to admit it or he’s a fool, but he actually ruined Sookieverse. I cannot see him redeeming himself especially when he thinks his “show” is god’s gift to HBO. I forget her name but the girl writer on the show should take over since it seems like her episodes are always remarkably better. Sack Alan Ball because he sucks.

    And that Jason storyline was just gross. If Jason had been a woman that would never have been allowed on tv, but because he’s a guy it’s suddenly okay?

  16. The Original Ashley says:

    LisaMarie – It’s genetics. I have that butt and I get it from sitting on my ass all day. Every pound goes to it instead of elsewhere. Luckily it’s never reached Kardashian proportions.

  17. Jen34 says:

    @ Lisa Marie

    LOL When you compare her to that mess, Anna’s dress is demure. I take back my comment. I guess if I were on a panel, though, I would be dressed comfortably. Jeans and a t-shirt.

  18. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    It looks from the first pic that Stephen Moyer(the biebs haircut doesn’t suit him) really likes that dress, looks like he’s got a boner pointing at her.

  19. dovesgate says:

    I am SO mad I didn’t go to Comic Con!!!! Grrr!

  20. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    @Lisa Marie, I can’t believe they let that woman into the venue! The least she could do is slap on a pair of pasties.

    @love Angelina,I took like the storyline this season, but the way that woman plays Marnie annoys me. She is too over the top (campy) and I wish they had cast someone else for that roll.

    ****book spoiler*****

    I do, however, wish they stuck with Jasons storyline in the books, the non-rapey one where he marries Crystal.

  21. 4Real says:

    She looks good…the hair is bugging me a little but at least she wore underwear.

    And ITA – I don’t like that Marnie “actress”…and they BETTER fix PAM!

  22. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    @the original ashey, the only way my butt has even started to look anywhere near that nice was with the help of a personal trainer who subjects me to a crap ton of Bulgarian squats! If you sit on your butt all day and have that ass, I’m guessing you’re in your early to mid twenties. Enjoy it while it lasts, at 31 I’m having to work hard at it 🙁

  23. Eleonor says:

    Did someone hire Justin Bieber’s hairstylist?

  24. aenflex says:

    deborah ann is a godess and she steals the show from all others. i like paquin but she’s never been attractive to me. gimme more jessica!

  25. Green Is Good says:

    Anna is trying way too hard be to sexy.

    Having said that, she’s no doubt dressing to turn her husband on. Nothing wrong with that!

  26. Ari says:

    Deborah, I LOVE YOU!! *fangirls out*

  27. MourningTheDeathofMusic says:

    @4Real – Bite your tongue! Fiona Shaw is a fantastic actress!
    And let me get my nerdom on over the irony (which I’m sure was meant) to have Fiona Shaw aka Petunia Dursley (a Muggle) from the Harry Potter [film] series play the part of a head witch!

    As for Anna’s dress… Meh. I agree that it appears she’s trying too hard.

  28. JM says:

    I agree with the others who’ve pointed out Alan Ball’s Bill boner is killing the show. To many things that Eric did for Sookie in the books either were omitted or Ball gave them to Bill (killing Longshadow). It’s one thing to tinker with the source material but quite another when you throw the source out and produce bad fan fiction.

    As to his arguement he’s been spouting that if they followed the books closely, the readers wouldn’t have as much fun…I guess he missed Game of Thrones. There were scenes that were practically word for word from the book and yet, that show held my attention and left me craving more.

    As for Anna…I like her style and her body is something I strive for. Oh to have her biceps!

  29. Lizzy says:

    There are some really bad angles here and yet she still looks hot. Wish I could pull that off!

  30. UKHels says:

    she has a great bod but always looks miserable or like she’s about to kick off

    puts me off more than her terrible acting – sorry!

  31. Tomas says:

    True Blood has completely lost it’s luster but did so during that ridiculously stupid season 2. Season 1 was great but they haven’t even come close to capturing that dynamic since then…

  32. lrm says:

    i’m sorry, i just dont find either of them attractive.
    she looks hardened and oily-and her outfit in these pics just emphasizes that-but she always looks that way to me in photos….
    either she needs to clean up her lifestyle or maybe it’s genetic-but she wont age well.
    then again, i have never seen this famous show they are on together….
    so i dont get the appeal at all. blek.
    i live in san diego and there are oodles of hotter men and women/people outside my door

  33. Amanda G says:

    Stephen…UGGGGHHH….that hair! It just gets worse and worse.

    I hate how whenever we finally get some Eric/Sookie action, someone has to come along and interrupt it.

  34. kg says:

    i looooove annna & this show keeps me alive yo!

  35. hairball says:

    I agree that while I’m not getting tired of the show, I’m starting to feel it’s not worth it to keep watching this show.

    I do think the Bill / Sookie connection is very touching. I think Stephen Moyer does a good job acting.

    HOWEVER, there is SO little actual Eric/Sookie and Sookie / Bill time that I am starting to feel ripped off each show.

    Arlene and a demon baby?? I mean come THE f*ck on! What a f*cking waste of precious minutes. And out of the blue Jessica suddenly has a crush on Jason??? It just seems like a stupid way to show more sex. That is not a turn on to me.

    I am getting SO frustrated with how little they actually show Eric and Sookie that I’m sort of sorry I started watching this show in the first place. I’m also getting the feeling Sookie and Eric won’t even actually do anything anyways.

  36. Anonymous says:

    Anna’s body is smokin’ – Sookie looks great.

  37. hairball says:

    Yes though that Sookie looks 10000x better then seasons 2-3. She looked SO harsh and bad. She actually looks pretty this season.

  38. Leigh says:

    I totally agree with most of these comments..
    Still loving the show.. but I cannot force my interest in the Arlene story line.. the witch storyline bores me outside the vampire connection and I’m SO BORED of Tara.. The actress is awesome, the story line is completely uninteresting. Still my favourite summer show by far though…

  39. telesma says:

    She’s kind of cheap looking to begin with. The Fredericks of Hollywood style dress isn’t helping.

  40. Camille says:

    They all look great. I LOVE True Blood. One of the best shows on TV.

  41. dovesgate says:


    Uh… Guys. Jessica isn’t into Jason. Jason is only into Jessica because she fed him her blood to save his life. That’s why he had that dream about her.

  42. Louisa says:

    I like Anna’s dress but her boots doesn’t seem to match it.

    That girl in the orange dress is very pretty too, as is her dress, but it looks like it was made from curtains.

    Your novice fashion critic

  43. Mo75 says:

    Anna’s body is A..MAZE…ING!!!! I think she looks super hot!! Loved the show last night, but there are some story lines I could do without…like anything with Tara, I’m so over her.

  44. dj says:

    I am so glad others feel the same way about Bill killing the show. I actually have a little different opinion. Moyer and Pacquin are married in real life. Would most wives (if he’s a good guy) want less screen time for their husband? I do not know if this is true but it is a theory. Plus, love Jessica and Pam. Please get rid of ridiculous demon baby plot and give them more screen time.

  45. Jax says:

    Put it away? Are you kidding??? If I had a body like that you’d have trouble making me wear clothes!!!!!!!

  46. Stacia says:

    The show is starting to “jump the shark”.

    And whats with that “pedo-hairstyle” that Stephen Moyer(Bill)has. Kinda creepy.

  47. Christina says:

    Stephen IS SUCH A WANNABE TRYHARD. Lol. He looks like he’s 50 years old and he’s wearing that California surfer college guy hairstyle and Taylor Lautner leather jacket with a white fitted t-shirt with attitudish writing on it. HAHAHAHAH. Gimme a break! We all know you’re an old man, Stephen. Dressing up like this just makes you look like an even bigger douche. If you truly want to look young how about going to a top notch plastic surgeon or dermatologist and actually fixing your wrinkly saggy thinned skin? Because dressing up like this is like a homeless person applying cologne over their stink. IT JUST MAKES THE PROBLEM MORE NOTICEABLE.

  48. Meg says:

    lets be honest-if a woman criticizes her for wearing that its because she’s jealous. hell-i wish i looked like that
