Lastly, do you kind of have to laugh at the vampire craze that is so hot these days, when you and the Scoobies were doing it like 15 years ago?
I’m not surprised. I deduce the popularity to be all about the chemistry between the people. On Twilight, the chemistry between Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart … I mean, clearly they’re together [in real life], and it’s palpable in the way they look at each other. That’s what drew everybody in and made Twilight so incredibly popular. It is about that universal feeling of love and connection, understanding and protection, and sex, and that’s so visceral in Twilight. As far as True Blood goes, what I’ve seen of it is very sexy and raw. That cover they did for Rolling Stone brought out a dual side of me — offended that my son would see it on the one hand, yet intrigued by how daring it was with the sexuality on display. All that, plus blood.
