Anna Paquin: My Bisexuality 'Is Not Made Up' Despite Being Married To Stephen Moyer

Posted: Updated:

Anna Paquin has never been one for conventionality. Currently expecting her first child, the Oscar-winning actress is hoping to silence critics who feel her proclaimed bisexuality is insincere.

"I'm sure for some people saying they’re bisexual feels less scary than making a statement that they're gay," Paquin -- who is married to her "True Blood" co-star Stephen Moyer -- tells Zooey magazine in a new interview. "For me, it’s not really an issue because I’m someone who believes being bisexual is actually a thing. It’s not made up. It’s not a lack of decision."

She continues, "It’s not being greedy or numerous other ignorant things I’ve heard at this point. For a bisexual, it’s not about gender. That’s not the deciding factor for who they’re attracted to."

Paquin declared her bisexuality in a public service announcement called "Give A Damn," released shortly before she married Moyer in 2010. (You can watch that video above). Her quotes have since been republished by the Daily Mail and the New York Post, among other publications.

Now calling her sexuality a "really minor biographical detail," she went on to note, "If you’re going to talk about some cause in a way that’s meaningful, you should identify why it means something to you."
