“True Blood’s” Anna Paquin on coming out

Hollywoodnews.com: HBO “True Blood” star Anna Paquin elaborated in detail why she decided to come out as a bisexual earlier this year.

Paquin’s announcement came as a surprise following news that she became engaged to fellow “True Blood” star Stephen Moyer. In deciding to participate in a PSA for Colors First, a gay rights organization, Paquin felt an innate duty to reveal who she really is and speak on behalf of the gay community.

“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,” says Paquin to Zap2it.com.

“It wasn’t like it was a big secret. It was just a cause I cared about and privately supported, but not one that I had ever had an opportunity to speak out about in a way that would be useful. Obviously I know that one person’s voice doesn’t necessarily do that much, but I just wanted to do my bit.”

Paquin’s coming out didn’t shock her boss, “True Blood” creator Alan Ball as he is openly gay himself.

In 1994 at the ripe age of 11, Paquin won a best supporting actress Oscar for her turn as an outspoken girl in Jane Campion’s “The Piano,” beating out Holly Hunter, Emma Thompson, Rosie Perez and Winona Ryder.
