Anna Paquin: I'm "Proud to Be a Happily Married Bisexual Mother"
The final, seventh season of True Blood kicks off later this month on HBO, but in the meantime, series star Anna Paquin has other things to celebrate—including LGBT Pride Month! "Proud to be a happily married bisexual mother," the actress, 31, tweeted early Monday, June 8. Looping in the Twitter handles of Equality California, the It Gets Better Project, and the NOH8 Campaign, she added, "Marriage is about love not gender."
Oscar winner Paquin wed True Blood costar Stephen Moyer back in August 2010, and gave birth to their twins Charlie and Poppy just over two years later. She memorably came out as bisexual a few months before her wedding in a statement for the Give a Damn campaign. Over the weekend, the Canada-born star also praised British hubby Moyer's participation in the massive Soccer Aid charity match in the UK.
"Been obsessing so much bout @socceraid @_smoyer forgot it was #gaypride in LA! I'm proud of the steps we've taken 2wards equality! R U?" the X-Men star asked her followers. "So much love to you all. must sleep while the babes sleep. goodnight. xo #HappyPride #socceraid2014 #unicef #safetravels @_smoyer"
Of her bisexuality, the former child actress told Zooey magazine in spring 2010, "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."
The Piano star continued, "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."
