We’ve all heard of people getting drunk and then having real sex, but Lizzy Caplan says she was so nervous for her True Blood sex scenes she had to get drunk just to do them. Her drink of choice? Vodka! At least that was the case for her first sex scene on the show in 2008.

“I was hammered for that,” Caplan told Chelsea Handler about her HBO experience. “I didn’t really have lines the first time. It was like 7 a.m. in the morning and I was chugging vodka completely naked while a makeup artist I had just met was on her knees in front of me sponging my ass. It’s intimate.”

Wait…how does one go about getting that sponging Lizzy Caplan’s ass job? I’m just curious.

Caplan also told Handler that after the scene she was so smashed that she was going up to the crew, who she had just met, and saying things like, “You got a boner! You do! You’ve got one!”

And just like that Lizzy Caplan is now one of our favorite actresses in the world.
