“True Blood” star Anna Paquin surprised many people by saying she’s bisexual in a public service announcement from the True Colors Fund in 2010, and now expecting her first child with husband Stephen Moyer, she’s telling critics her bisexuality is “not made up.”
“I’m sure for some people saying they’re bisexual feels less scary than making a statement that they’re gay,” Paquin tells Zooey magazine. “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.”
When asked if she felt she had to sacrifice her privacy for the PSA, she tells the mag, “Absolutely not. I think it’s a really minor biographical detail. If you’re going to talk about some cause in a way that’s meaningful, you should identify why it means something to you.”
