So by now all you True Blood fans have gotten to see the big 5th season premiere, no doubt learning where the stage is set for this new season of the show. Hopefully they have enough sense to set aside the goofy fairy world and unrequited vampire love nonsense, and return to what they do best - creating an interesting world where supernatural/mystical creatures of all sorts are attempting to exist and interact in a real world scenario. Whatever happens this season, we will surely have an assortment of hotties of all kinds doing all kinds of hot things for us to appreciate. Today, we pit two of the show's hottie regulars, Anna Paquin and Deborah Ann Woll, against one another to see which one stands as the hottest True Blood hottie of them all.
Deborah hasn't been a recognizable person for most folks for very long, but in that time she's made quite a splash, both as an actress and a beauty. With that red hair and bright, blue eyes, she's quite a contender against anyone in the looks department. Being partial to the redheads, it's not much of a surprise that I give her the award here. Still, it's quite impressive how far she's come in such a short time.
Most of us have been checking out Anna since way back in the first X-MEN movie. Since taking the role of Sookie Stackhouse on True Blood, Anna's taken a bit of a turn. Abandoning her natural brunette hair for Sookie's blond locks has caused her to lose something in my estimation. She works much better as a brunette. I could get into the whole gaps thing, but the blond over brunette issue is frankly much more glaring to me.
Deborah hasn't done a full on nude scene on the show yet, although she's come pretty damn close. Perhaps not close enough to satisfy one's desire for skin, but enough to give us a fairly complete picture of the quality happening south of the neck line. I think it's safe to say that, in addition to a pretty face, Deb's rocking an equally hot body. I do love when two perfect things come together. Being both beautiful and built is at least 2/3rds perfect as far as I'm concerned.
Anna's gotten down to it in a number of sex scenes during her time on the show, coming right out with some unadulterated nudity in more than one scene. This was a bit of a surprise, as it happened rather unexpectedly a few seasons into the show. Quite a nice surprise, though. So nice are both these ladies bodies, it's rather difficult to say one of them is hotter than the other, so they both tie for first.
Of course, being pretty and built isn't the whole story. One has to know how to make use of those assets. And Deborah certainly knows how to do that, at least on her show. Real life Deb seems like a pretty down to Earth kind of gal in her interviews. I like to think she channels at least part of Jessica's intensity from some real life aspect of her personality, but who knows if that's true.
On the other hand, Anna's real life personality is much more interesting than her fictional persona. Being a self-proclaimed bi-sexual certainly helps there. Something about hotties of Anna's quality contentedly going from hot dogs to tacos, that makes the perverted male mind do mental picture somersaults. Those are fun.
As a newly created vampire, Deb's Jessica character craves nothing but sex, violence and blood at all times. She's just dying to get some willing "fang banger" cornered in a bathroom stall. She's also equally willing to get neck deep in folks asses, even ancient vampires who could snap her neck like a twig. Jessica has little to no self control at all, which means that when Jessica hops on top of you, the odds are 50/50 that you'll either come away with the best experience of your life or dead and bloodless. I like those odds.
As Sookie, Anna is too much of a screaming, panicked victim, quite often stumbling through throngs of monsters and creatures as they battle it out around her, or for her. She does deliver an occasional smackdown with her lightning throw powers, but she only brings that out when she's cornered or seriously provoked. Maybe they'll give Sookie a bit more of a backbone this season, but then who would all the smitten vampires fight and cry bloody tears over? The drama revolving around Sookie's love life is probably my least favorite part of this show, so she's definitely in second place here as far as I'm concerned.
I wasn't really surprised with the outcome here, as Deborah has quickly become one of my favorite hotties. Although she wasn't immediately my favorite on the show. It wasn't until they started to imbue Jessica with more sex and violence qualities that she really came into her own. For all of Sookie's vampire preferences and super tight barmaid outfit, she's still got a long way to go as far as character goes. Too much damsel in distress for my tastes. As for Anna, she's hot, but something went wonky when she went blond. She needs to literally go back to her roots.
