New York: `True Blood` star Alexander Skarsgard, who plays Eric Northam, has said that he loves being in the buff.

And he owes his fetish to his Swedish roots.

"I`m not a prude. I`m from Sweden, and it`s different there," a news daily quoted him as telling a news website.

"I love to be naked. It`s kind of liberating,” he added.

As Eric Northam, the `True Blood` star has already flashed his taut behind for audiences and engaged in numerous sexually charged scenes with a number of his female co-stars.

But the 33-year-old actor, who is reportedly dating Kate Bosworth, will not bare all for no reason.

"If it makes sense, I`ll do nudity, and it`s made sense every single time I`m naked on the show," he said.

He doesn`t even mind stripping in front of men.
