“True Blood” star Anna Paquin shrugs off the suggestion that she did anything remarkable when she came out as a bisexual earlier this year in a PSA.
“I’m not someone who endlessly talks about her personal life for no reason, but obviously, as someone who identifies as bisexual, those are issues I really care about — and frankly, I don’t see why everyone doesn’t care about them,” Paquin, who is engaged to co-star Stephen Moyer, tells Zap2it. “So when I was asked to participate in that PSA (for True Colors First, a gay rights organization), it was just an obvious, ‘Well, of course I will.’

“I thought that was really brave, and I say ‘good for her,'” Ball says.
“I like the fact that she doesn’t feel the need to keep that hidden,
and she was sort of saying, ‘This is who I am and I am doing this
because I want to make a stand for gay, lesbian, bisexual and
transgendered people, and equal rights for all.’
“But I don’t think it’s that big a deal, really. I was aware of this
before, but when I heard that she had made that announcement, I just
said, ‘Good for you.’ “
