This month’s Men’s Health cover boy is hunky Stephen Moyer. The man behind Bill Compton opens up about getting in shape for the new season of True Blood and falling for wife and don’t miss  his shirtless outtakes!

Here’s what the True Blood actor had to share:

On meeting his costar and future wife, Anna Paquin: “I was intrigued by her. She was very open about work. But she was withdrawn [personally]. I was like, ‘Here I am, here’s everything I got.’ I remember leaving the screen test and thinking, God, I’d like to spend more time with her….I remember getting back to London [after the pilot] and just going, ‘I have to keep speaking to this person.’ We began speaking every night on Skype for 2 or 3 hours.”

On persistence at the gym: “There’s no immediate payoff. Sometimes it feels like it’s taking forever to see results. It takes commitment and time, but when you start to see results—when you feel a bit leaner or you’re doing more reps – you start to think, Wow, I can see a difference! And it’s palpable. I recommend it.”

On his co-star, Ryan Kwanten: “[His character] walks into a room and takes his shirt off. That’s his normal entrance. Ryan has minus 6 percent body fat.”

He’s 41.
