Anna Paquin opened up about her bisexuality in the April/May 2012 issue of Zooey Magazine.
The 32-year-old actress and expectant mom spilled on her bisexuality and life as an actress. Anna is currently expecting her first child with husband Stephen Moyer, her costar on the hit HBO vampire series True Blood.
Anna made headlines recently by claiming that despite her marriage and children, she is still in fact bisexual. Check out the excerpt from the interview for more details.
On her bisexuality:
“I’m sure for some people saying they’re bisexual feels less scary than making a statement that they’re gay. 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. 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.”
On how the pressures to look a certain way in Hollywood affect her:
“Interestingly enough, I don’t really care about my teeth, but I think any woman on this planet could say, ‘I wish my ass was smaller, my arms were thinner and I had green eyes not brown.’ I think anyone is as critical as they have the energy to self-obsess, but I also know as an actress you are more limited if you interfere with your looks. If you have a whole bunch of work done with your teeth and your face and your boobs then you’re only going to play modern people. That’s a big choice to make. Very limiting.”
