According to Anna Paquin, Sookie Stackhouse is a little less ... er, stacked on this seventh and final season of HBO's True Blood.
The 31-year-old actress, who welcomed twins with husband and co-star Stephen Moyer in 2012, joked about the effect her real-life pregnancy had on her character in an interview on Late Night With Seth Meyers that aired on Tuesday, July 15.
"It turns out that pre-baby t-ts are, like, so much bigger than post-baby t-ts," she said. "Sorry, babies."
Meyers commented on her usage of the word "t-ts," which was bleeped out, to which she joked, "OK, I've been on HBO for too long."
"I'm sorry," she said. "So post-breastfeeding breasts ..."
Many women who have breastfed babies have experienced changes in their breasts' size and appearance once they have finished producing breast milk. Paquin said she had to have her season 1 costume altered.
"So I guess technically you should never really be sad if you have to have your clothes taken in, but when you're, like, literally comparing a picture of what you looked like at 25 to like, 'OK, and that's what's left,'" she said, added, "I mean, you know, an amazing blessing—I have two beautiful children and you know, they did their jobs ..."
On this season of True Blood, viewers got to watch a flashback sequence showing Paquin-as-Stackhouse wearing a lovely floral dress (pictured below).
She wore the same outfit in a scene in season 1, which aired in 2008 (pictured below).
In her interview with Meyers, Paquin also talked about her last day of filming True Blood season 7, saying that the power to her trailer was shut down prematurely by accident.
"I couldn't find my clothes," she said, laughing.
Paquin, at age 11, became the second-youngest Oscar winner in history when she took home the Academy Award for her supporting role in the 1993 film The Piano (Tatum O'Neal holds the record—at age 10, she won an Oscar for the 1973 movie Paper Moon). Paquin told Meyers that she attended an Oscar party earlier this year and had her makeup artist give her statuette a makeover.
