Anna Paquin teaches Larry King about bisexuality
First of all, happy 32nd birthday to Anna Paquin!
So the other night I was watching the True Blood star (and Oscar winner for The Piano) being interview by Larry King on the Emmy-nominated online series Larry King Now.
Paquin, married to co-star Stephen Moyer, was asked by the host: ‘Are you a non-practicing bisexual?’
Paquin replied: ‘Well, I am married to my husband and we are happily monogamously married.’
King: ‘So you were bisexual?’
Paquin: ‘Well, I don’t think it’s a past-tense kind of thing. It doesn’t prevent your sexuality from existing. It doesn’t really work like that.’
Paquin said she ‘just never thought it was a big deal’ to be a bisexual and she is happy to see more people being open about their sexuality these days.
‘I think it’s fantastic. … I do know the more people who are outspoken and advocate for same-sex unions and LGBT rights, I have to believe that that makes a difference and the level of ignorance and hatred becomes less acceptable.’
