Anna Paquin dating co-star Stephen Moyer
It was confirmated today that Anna Paquin is dating her True Blood co-star Stephen Moyer.
With all the talk around here of really famous people, how about a break for some less-famous hook-ups? Or possible hook-ups intended to bring in publicity for a TV show.
True Blood is a vampire series on HBO in which Anna Paquin stars as a mind-reading waitress named Sookie who consistently wears dresses that are way too small.
Us reports that 26-year-old Paquin, who won an Oscar at age 11 for The Piano but is probably best known as Rogue from the X-Men films, is dating her True Blood co-star Stephen Moyer, age 36 or 37, depending on what day he was born. Online sources only list his birth date as 1971.
Moyer has an eight-year-old son and six-year-old daughter from previous relationships. According to IMDB, he’s previously starred in a lot of British television series.
Anna is very protective of her private life but has been romantically linked to actors Logan Marshall-Green and Kieran Culkin.
Stephen Moyer obviously also keeps his private life private, because there is bupkus online about this guy.
According to Us, Anna and Stephen have been a couple since they met filming the pilot episode.
"They are really cute together,” says the source. “Extremely in love and perfectly suited.”

I don’t get HBO so I don’t know how good this show is, but I loved Moonlight on CBS even though it was super-corny. I’m still bitter that they cancelled it.
I’m always suspicious when co-stars are rumored to be dating because it’s the easiest way to get free PR for a TV show or movie, but these two actors don’t seem like the type to sell out their personal lives for publicity.
And here Charlaine Harris, the autor of the books that True Blood is based confirms it:
"Stephen and Anna's relationship is genuine." - Charlaine Harris
