Anna Paquin goes retro to channel Marilyn Monroe in a new photo shoot for V magazine and pulls it off with stunning sexuality. Like her character in the vampire drama “True Blood,” she knows how to get the blood flowing.
Pacquin poses in Marc Jacobs and sparkly emerald green dress for the shoot. She also dons a blonde wig to channel Marilyn.
On the hit show, she plays Sooki Stackhouse, a telepathic small town waitress in Louisiana who is the object of lust by the town’s voracious vampires.
The show begins it’s fourth season tomorrow, starring Alexander Skarsgard and Stephen Moyer, who plays Sookie’s vampire lover. Moyer and Pacquin are also married in real life.

“Maybe it should be weird, simulating sex with your husband in front of people. But it’s really not,” said Paquin, a veteran actress who won and Oscar at 11-years-old for a supporting role in “The Piano.”
“When it’s a love scene with someone you actually love it’s not, ‘Can I touch him here, can I touch him there?’ You know what your boundaries are, or aren’t I suppose.”
The show has never shied away from nudity, and neither has the free-spirited Paquin. She’s very open about he bi-sexuality.
“There is a lot of prejudice against us but the more people talk about it, the less of a deal it will be,” she says in an interview.
“Who people choose to sleep with – or spend their lives with-shouldn’t matter, not that anyone particularly cares who I’m attracted to.”
Paquin came out as a bisexual in April 2010, just four months before she and Moyer wed.
She has since participated in the “Give a Damn” campaign, which features celebrities speaking out for sexual equality.
“I’m Anna Paquin. I’m bisexual and I give a damn,” she said in the promo.
She says she is mildly amused about how women and men also fawn over her husband.
“There is probably something wrong with me, but I find it amusing to watch these men and women fawn all over him,” she said.
“It’s not like anyone is really trying to do anything inappropriate. They just him to hug them… or bite them.”
