Anna Paquin has always been open about her bisexuality, but many people assumed she’d “gone straight” on us since she married her True Blood co-star Stephen Moyer and had twins with him. Obviously that’s not the case, so when Larry King asked about Anna’s “former” sexuality, she had to set him straight on a few things.
From Larry King Live (via US Weekly):
“Are you a non-practicing bisexual?” King, 80, asked.
“Well, I mean, I am married to my husband, and we happy monogamously married,” the Oscar winner, 32, replied.
“But you were bisexual?” King continued.
“Well, I don’t think it’s a past tense thing,” Paquin answered, laughing. “Are you still straight if you’re with somebody? Doesn’t mean you’re not, if you were to break up with them or you were to die. It doesn’t prevent your sexuality from existing. It doesn’t really work like that.”
Well, duh. And you’d think someone like Larry King has been on the earth enough to understand this, but I suppose that’s expecting too much. Love me some Anna Paquin, though.
