Anna Paquin, star of the HBO
supernatural drama True Blood, asserts she's bisexual, despite
her marriage to Stephen Moyer.
The 31-year-old Paquin first publicly
came out bisexual in a 2010 PSA for the WeGiveADamn campaign.
“I'm Anna Paquin. I'm bisexual,”
she said in the PSA. “And I give a damn.”
Paquin married her True Blood
co-star Stephen Moyer on August 21, 2010. Together they are raising
four children, including fraternal twins Charlie and Poppy born in
A tweet she sent last month reasserting
her bisexuality and in support of marriage equality attracted
“Proud to be a happily married
bisexual mother,” she
messaged her more than 99,000 followers. “Marriage is about
love not gender.”
During a recent appearance on Larry
King Now, Paquin explained her sexuality to host Larry King.
“Are you a non-practicing bisexual?”
“Well, I am married to my husband and
we are happily monogamously married,” she answered.
“But you were bisexual?”
“I don't think it's a past-tense
thing,” she replied. “Are you still straight if you are with
somebody? If you were to break up with them or if they were to die,
it doesn't prevent your sexuality from existing. It doesn't really
work like that.”
