True Blood's Jim Parrack is either a superb dead-pan comedian, or an enormous weirdo. I'll let you decide which.
In a recent interview with Vulture, the 33-year-old actor revealed that he has uncontrollable craving for real human blood.
Parrack told interviewers that his previous mentions of slurping down the red stuff weren't jokes about his role as Hoyt Fortenberry on [True Blood](series:200767), but deadly serious. When asked if he was larking around, Parrack told interviewers that;
No, that’s not what it was. I was being literal. I like the real deal
When pressed on why he likes to drink blood, the actor answered;
Um, I guess for the same reason some people want alcohol? Or for the same reason some people want, I don’t know … milk? Or Kool-Aid?
Obviously intrigued by these unconventional revelations of the vampiric kind, the interviewer question Parrack on how often he partakes in slurping the vital fluid. Thankfully, we don't have a blood bath on our hands here, Parrack answered;
I don’t know. Maybe a couple times a year? It’s more like on an impulse. When you make me spell it out like this, it sounds strange, but I just want to be clear — that night, I was being literal. There was something about that night where I had that impulse. I guess the best way to put it is sometimes I just like the way it tastes.
He then went on to explain that the blood he sips upon comes from his 'girl' as opposed to grisly gallon jugs of pigs blood from the butcher's store. Parrack clarified that;
No, I don’t mean copious amounts of blood. I'm not getting a glass of it or something. But if you drink it, it does something to you emotionally. It’s hard to describe. It’s kind of like you’re in the moment, and the impulse comes, and … I like it
I would say that I think somebody might have got a little bit too into method acting, but Hoyt wasn't even a vampire!
Can drinking blood be sexy?
