“True Blood” star Stephen Moyer calls “Twilight” idealized, fluffy

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: Big things are afoot in Bon Temps, and star Stephen Moyer spoke today to the LA Times about what’s in store for the “True Blood” series. When questioned about the enduring popularity of vampire stories in recent years, he made a direct comparison between “True Blood” and “Twilight.”

“[Twilight is] this perfect romance, this perfect ideal. Ours isn’t quite as fluffy as that. The way that [creator/writer] Alan [Ball] works is, as soon as a character has a semblance of happiness, he digs a hole for them to drive into.”

Moyer also seemed to draw a big distinction between viewer demographics for the two franchises: “I think in the teen world, there’s a beautiful romance about that stuff. I believe this year the Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart characters have a baby.”
