What in the world?!
Jim Parrack, aka Hoyt Fortenberry, was around tons of fake blood on the set of True Blood, but in real life, he actually likes True Blood!
After the first season, Parrack made an off-handed comment that he sometimes drinks blood, and apparently he meant it!
The actor was recently asked about it again, and clarified:
"I was being literal. I like the real deal. 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?"
Hmm… oh-kay. As for how often he indulges, the 33-year-old said:
“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."
So, how much does Parrack drink and where does he get the blood from? Well, he said he’s “absolutely particular” and that it’s only from whoever he is dating, and currently that’s Hunger Games actress Leven Rambin. But it’s not like he goes and gets a glass of it! Parrack explained that "It does something to you emotionally” so he only needs enough to give into the craving.
Yeah, this is totally bizarre, but there are probably weirder things that people like out there in Hollywoodland!
