'True Blood' star Stephen Moyer : Wife Anna Paquin gives me permission to bite my fans' breasts

Stephen Moyer opens up about finding love with his on- and off-screen love, Anna Paquin.

Stephen Moyer opens up about finding love with his on- and off-screen love, Anna Paquin.

Even without his menacing fangs, Stephen Moyer can still bring the bite.

The 41-year-old "True Blood" actor talks love and fitness in the new issue of Men's Health and reveals he's always happy to sink his teeth into an adoring fan - as long as wife Anna Paquin gives the okay.

"I get to sign boobs a lot," the actor tells the magazine. "I get to bite boobs, occasionally, when I'm allowed. If my missus is there and she approves of the person I get to bite boobs ... and necks."

Paquin, 28, plays Moyer's mind-reading love-interest, Sookie Stackhouse, on the hit HBO show, which kicks off its fourth season this Sunday.

Off-screen, the two tied the knot last August after dating for three years, but Moyer admits he and Paquin were both hesitant about jumping into an on-set romance.

"I did find love on set," he says of the actress, whom he met during screen tests for the show. "Our interest was piqued by each other but at that point it was like, we're about to work together for a long time, hopefully, you know, if the show gets picked up."

"So, there were no feelings at that point," he adds.

But it didn't take long for the sparks to fly. "They put us in a hotel, we were in the same hotel. We were having dinner every night. [And then] I got back to London and Anna got back to New York and I just missed speaking to her every day, which is what we had been doing up into that point," he reveals.

The couple turned to Skype, chatting online for two or three hours a night, and their interest quickly grew into love.

"I was intrigued by her," Moyer remembers. "She was very open about work. But she was withdrawn [personally]. I was like, 'Here I am, here's everything I've got.'"
