We're totally comfortable in our own skin and have no problem doing a little naked dance in the bedroom (don't lie, you know you do it, too), but being nude and going at it in front of over two million people? That's a whole different story.
Janis Ian Lizzy Caplan appeared on Chelsea Lately last night to talk sex in her new TV series Masters of Sex, but ended up talking more about her steamy scenes in True Blood with Ryan Kwanten's character, Jason Stackhouse, instead. Not that we mind, we mean, remember this? Whew.
"I was hammered for that," she tells the host. "I didn't really have lines the first time. It was like 7 in the morning and I was chugging vodka completely naked while a makeup artist I had just met was on her knees in front of me, sponging my ass. It's intimate."
Intimated indeed, but hey, they don't call it "liquid courage" for nothin'. Watch the interview clip below, and set aside some time during your lunch break for throwback True Blood videos.
