Anna Paquin, star of the HBO supernatural drama True Blood, says the “hateful” backlash to her coming out bisexual was expected.

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, who at the time was engaged to marry Stephen Moyer, her True Blood co-star, was criticized for the move.

“There's people who are probably going to go to their grave thinking whatever they think about the LGBT community,” Paquin said during an appearance on HuffPost Live. “That's their problem, not mine.”

“I know there are a lot of hateful people in the world who have strong opinions. You know when you stick your neck out on certain topics that some people are going to go “yay!” and some people are going to say some of the most vile things that you can imagine.”
