It seems the fake blood is "a bizarre kind of glucose concoction," Kwanten explained, and then cautioned that you wouldn't want to drink too much of the faux blood. "Like with anything, if you have too much, it's not gonna go down well."

"Extra" caught up with Ryan at Variety's Power of Women Luncheon on Thursday in Beverly Hills. The 32-year-old's mom is the most powerful woman to him, saying, "She raised four boys -- that's including my father!" "She turned us into men."
