“So we’re just gonna ignore the shirtless tattooed guy?” “Yup.”

If you thought “True Blood” star Anna Paquin’s topless love scene (NSFW) with co-star Stephen Moyer was convincing, well, that’s because they weren’t acting.  Paquin and Moyer — who play a telepathic waitress and a vampire, respectively, on the HBO hit — confirmed to TV Guide Magazine that they are, in fact, dating.

“The reason it was dodged last year was very intentional on both our parts,” Moyer tells the publication. “We didn’t want to take anything away from the show. The show is the star, not the two people having a relationship.”

Moyer says his girlfriend is “the best.” “It’s just exciting and that was there from day one,” Moyer says to TV Guide Magazine. “We always take the piss out of each other and are silly with each other and it is great. We’re very, very happy.”

Well, that’s great, buddy.  But one thing has always bothered me about “True Blood” — and no, it’s not Anna Paquin’s teeth.  Her character’s name is Sookie, which I always hear and think “Suki.”  And then I’m all, “Why does she have an Asian name?”  And that takes away from everything else going on in the show, from the great concept to the slick way it’s shot to the horrible, horrible acting.
