True Blood star Anna Paquin says her bisexuality is not made up.
The 29-year-old Paquin, who plays Sookie Stackhouse on the increasingly gay-inclusive HBO vampire hit True Blood, announced she's bisexual soon after she became engaged to husband and co-star Stephen Moyer, who plays vampire Bill Compton on the series.
“I'm sure for some people saying they're bisexual feels less scary than making a statement that they're gay,” Paquin told Zooey Magazine. “For me, it's not really an issue because I'm someone who believes being bisexual is actually a thing.”
She added: “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 choosing to come out now, Paquin answered: “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.”
