His True Blood character, Jason Stackhouse, may still be looking for that perfect woman; but it looks like the hottie who plays him, Aussie star Ryan Kwanten, has found a hot new romance. Ryan was spotted at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival this past weekend with a gorgeous, young brunette to whom he kept referring as “my girlfriend,” onlookers say.
“They stayed together at the same hotel,” an insider confirms. “They were together the whole weekend. I didn’t spot them apart once. They’re definitely a couple, and it looks serious.”
So serious, in fact, we still don’t have her name. But that’s no surprise considering Ryan’s always been super-secretive about who he’s dating.
We’re just glad our favorite non-bloodsucking hunk has found happiness!
Ever wanted a piece of Jason Stackhouse’s hair? Need a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift? You’re in luck, because True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten has donated his hair to SKY and LIVI, a jewelry company that has used his hair to develop a blue diamond pendant.
Estimated to be at least $16,000, the gem, surrounded by an 18K white gold pendent, is currently up for auction to fund cancer awareness.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the money will go to the organization, Look Good Feel Better, which hopes to better the self-esteem of women struggling with cancer.
Kwanten said, “My friend Anjanette started SKY and LIVI to help women cope with hair loss due to chemo. I know first hand how traumatic this moment is, as my mother is a breast cancer survivor and lost her hair during treatment.” The actor continues, “I think it is empowering for women to make a diamond from their hair, so I’m donating my hair to create a diamond in honor of my mother—to honor her strength and to celebrate her life.”
The auction is up on Charity Buzz for bids. The last day to bid is on Tuesday, May 7.

HBO has renewed the Aaron Sorkin drama The Newsroom for a second season, while their smash vampire romp True Blood was also picked up for its sixth season.
True Blood is currently in the midst of its fifth season, which will be its last with showrunner and creator Alan Ball at the helm. In February, HBO announced that while Ball would remain involved in the series as an executive producer, by stepping down he would have more time to develop new programs for HBO and Cinemax.
“Because of the fantastic cast, writers, producers and crew, with whom I have been lucky enough to work these past five years, I know I could step back and the show will continue to thrive as I look forward to new and exciting ventures,” said Ball in a statement at the time.
The Newsroom is currently just a handful of episodes into its first season, and though it received mixed reviews from critics, it has been among HBO’s top programs since it premiered on June 23rd. The drama stars Jeff Daniels as a jaded cable news anchor who attempts to change things with his producer/ex-girlfriend (Emily Mortimer) following a “mad as hell and I’m not gonna take it”-like moment.
HBO did not release any information involving possible air dates or changes for the new seasons of The Newsroom or True Blood.
