The latest on this Hollywood star is the Moyer has partner with Facing the World and Facing the Atlantic, in an effort to raise much needed funds to provide surgeries for children with facial disfigurement.

Facing the Atlantic is the backer of the Atlantic Woodvale race, an idea that sees James Cash and actor Bertie Portal looking to row a two-man boat from the Canary Islands to Barbados.

Moyer and Portal have been best buds for donkeys years now and he was his best man at Moyer and Paquin’s beachside wedding day in a tent at Malibu a while back.

ANNA PAQUIN AND STEPHEN MOYER MARRY IN MALIBU

Canadian-born and Kiwi raised actor, Ms Anna Paquin is now Mrs Moyer. From an A.P to an A.M is an upgrade, for sure. :)

True Blood star Stephen Moyer wed his sweetheart, Saturday evening, in Malibu, said their publicist to Us Magazine.Com.

 “Surrounded by their family and friends,” guests came bearing gifts in purple boxes and with purple bows in a list that included Elijah Wood and True Blood costar Carrie Preston with her husband Michael Emerson (Lost). 

Paquin, 28, and Moyer, 40, wed Middle Eastern styles, ie: they exchanged their vows beneath a ten. Like many Kiwi weddings the star couple’s tent was pitched right across the street in a grassy lot from the beach.

Bleach-blonde Paquin, 28, summoned Marilyn Monroe for her look: she wore a white halterneck, three-quarter length gown and black platform court shoes, with her hair in an updo. Moyer, 40, donned a dark suit.

California love. Congrats to the happy couple!!

MAORI ROLLING STONE TRUE BLOOD TRIBUTE AND THE HORIWOOD TOP TEN – WED 8.18.10


One image especially for Maori and Polynesian artists, all Kiwis and Canadians as well as True Blood fans who dig Anna Paquin and her fearless art as an entertainer. Jokingly I might add, that we taught this kid well in Jane Campion‘s The Piano filming years, didn’t we Maoris? Thank goodness for Maori extras in Hollywood’s cinematic history and current evolution of entertainment. Some of Anna’s best memories of early filmic friends are Maori moments. lol! 

Apologies to vegetarians and PETA lovers for all of the faux blood splatter again, but here’s the Hollywood Maori tribute version to Rolling Stone‘s hot Anna Paquin cover for True Blood with Alex Skarsgard and Stephen Moyer (it just had to be done).

As I was getting this photo, this mag was flying off the rack stands so quick, it made me want a medium-rare, Californian flame grilled Houston steak, asap. These 3 crazy kids are too Hollywood fierce this week. And why are Americans so obsessed with blood? Kiwi, Swedish and British blood at that. And these nations are America’s allies in real life, so go figure! 

In other news, here’s how you voted our top ten news choices. The guest commentary post today (embedded) is laugh-out-lady funny today. I don’t know who wrote it, but it brought a smile for poetic chortles purposes. 

1. True Blood Rolling Stone marketing ferocity, sings Pump Up The Volume.

2. Nikki Six still holds a flame for Kat Von D 

3. Justin Gaston‘s Psalmist-King‘s ink is Hollywood newsworthy

4. جلوه‌هایی از کرامت ها و ساده زیستی مقام

5. Team Alex Meraz

6. Hot Pick: Beyonce & Jay-Z at a restaurant

7. Angelina Jolie is triumphant in Salt

8. Michael Vartan joins Zoe Saldana & Cliff Curtis

9. An Author’s Sugar & Spice Style with Lauren Conrad

10. Humor: Johnny Depp will head to Hawaii for Pirates of the Caribbean

Guest humor: Will the real Carrie Bradshaw of the Middle East please come forward?

And as my bro, Cliff Curtis, Hollywood’s Maori King, cut his hori chops acting in both The Piano and Whalerider playing a Maori roles, garnering Oscar nods/ or helping garner winners, here’s two trailers just for brotha Cliff too–in recognition of all that Maori have gifted to Hollywood, to date. These films by women New Zealand filmmakers, starring Maori, are just so pretty. 

Because of a tremendous amount of love and a lot of grace that I feel I never deserved, I wake up every morning–most days happy–having the unique opportunity to be currently listed as a Struggling American-Maori writer of sorts. From this position of privilege as a Maori who happens to live in the Entertainment Capitol of the World. I have learned that it’s the journey of being an indigenous peoples’ storyteller that is the blessing and I can add that these people are my filmmaking people in our ‘Maori Hollywood’ active city too, 2010′s. Mauri Ora.

It is an honor to bear witness to this filmic tradition in Hollywood California, via a zero budget blog pressed fresh daily often against great odds, to herald the dreams of Maori and Kiwi filmmakers, yet to come.

In the 2010′s, Maori fusion filmmaking is so hot in Hollywood. Just look at Maori influences in Avatar to get a picture of that box office and record setting, cinematic Maori potential. Wow! With special thanks to Cliff and Keisha Castle Hughes, and my creative writing tutor Witi Ihimaera today for the inspiration to breathe, dream and be here at the help of friends and family. 

Bloody good stuff! Thanks

WRITTEN IN TRUE BLOOD, ANNA PAQUIN FOR ROLLING STONE

~Art is True Blood ink, where a needle is a fang in Hollywood. Art is also music, like good cross-cultural retro music that reminds us to always have courage to put the needle on the record and appreciate diverse entertainers and artists.~

Look at all that fake blood on a real Oscar winning girl from New Zealand. So Hollywoood. And it’s not even Halloween in America yet. 

Anna Paquin is doing way too much for HBO in this True Blood cover for Rolling Stone Magazine. What next?!

And as Alexander Skarsgard and Stephen Moyer eye up Anna’s Oscars audience base and appeal, like its theirs–that also makes me smile with their Zoolander model stares. Will Alex and Stephen ever win an Oscar of their own? Only time will tell. 

Anything is possible in Hollywood. And if anyone knows that Anna does, having won her Oscar at 10 years of age. But still having an Oscar as a Kiwi kid meant that Anna had to “pack to win,” to move to Hollywood and represent. 

I wonder if Anna ever regrets that decision, because look, here she is being vamped and vamping it up as these three crazy kids go over and beyond the call for a New Orleans based hit cable TV series.

Oh, and for the faint in heart, if this image was disturbing, oops–I’m sorry. No harm intended. You just have to know the True Blood Show to get how cool this cover is. These kids are unstoppable for their art, of fame?!

Here’s Ofrah Hazi at the 3:00 minute mark with M/A/R/R/S and some good retro music. Will the true artists of the world, always pump up the volume. Art is in the blood. Let’s go!

TRUE BLOOD’S SEASON 3 CAST POSTER SIZZLES

True Blood are one of the hottest ensemble casts in the Hollywood game. Snubbed by the often irrelevant Emmys last year for nominations, these crazy kids–can turn on a show, without archaic mileus who miss the boat constantly, even recognizing them.

As this new cast picture portrait demonstrates for True Blood: Season 3 demonstrates, these actors bring an A-List game to the Hollywood mix. Quirky, often irreverant in all of the right places for humor’s purposes. Love them!


TRUE BLOOD’S FIFTH PROMO POSTER STARS STEPHEN MOYER

Actually, it’s the sixth True Blood promo poster, if you read this blog. Who doesn’t like Stephen Moyer playing Bill Comppton in Allan Ball‘s hit series about vampires on HBO? This show is totally addictive!

And of course, as a fellow kidult who doesn’t want to ‘grow up’ either like all of True Blood’s fan base, we love Bill, because this poster lists his age at 174! Lol! Which makes all of his fans, feel merely like spring chickens. Aw, Bill always makes us feel good.

And Stephen Moyer‘s onscreen/ offscreen love story with the one and only Anna Paquin makes Moyer, Oscars club royalty too, just like Brad Pitt.

OSCAR WINNER ANNA PAQUIN IS AN ACTION KIWI GIRL IN SANTA MONICA

While Oscar winner Angelina Jolie recently told EW Magazine that she’s looking forward to “doing new stunts” in future films, fellow Oscar winning peer Anna Paquin of True Blood keeps up Oscars leading ladies rhetoric with a bit of action near her home she shares with fiance Stephen Moyer on beautiful Santa Monica Beach in California. This girl has a very original way of doing the poi dance of New Zealand.

With a Kiwi sense of humor, Anna swings from Olympian hoops (literally) and rides a bike too with True Blood‘s Bill wearing his Brad Pitt cap. Gotta love her. She’s a riot. Too funny.

Alright, it’s Katherine Heigl‘s turn to do a stunt next. These three girls have Hollywood’s cool A-List set sorted between them…  for the next few years. Action star, Oscars material. Hot leadership. :)

ANNA PAQUIN’S VILF, STEPHEN MOYER HAS A MAGAZINE COVER

True Blood rocks out their VILF’s in a marketing blitz via Details Magazine. Anna Paquin‘s fiance Stephen Moyer of the UK works it on the cover of Details Magazine. In Hollywood, the best vampires are always imported, for Americans to consume for their entertainment. A nice cover from Moyer, who is apparently a very open-minded fiance.

While hosting a benefit for the Good Dog Animal Rescue, National Service Dogs Foundation and Fidelco Dogs Founation with Anna Paquine, Moyer said:

He’s a character!
