Anna Paquin is tired of the misconceptions surrounding her sexuality.

In a new interview with Zooey magazine, the actress--who came out as bisexual in 2010--addresses the judgments people pass.

Admitting that there are some individuals who opt to identify as bisexual because it "feels less scary than making a statement that they're gay," Paquin still shoots down the popular notion that bisexuality is a choice.

"For me, it's not really an issue because I'm someone who believes being bisexual is actually a thing," the True Blood star, 29, shares. "It's not made up. It's not a . . . decision. It's not being greedy or numerous other ignorant things I've heard at this point."

Explains the actress, "For a bisexual, it's not about gender. That's not the deciding factor to who they're attracted to."

Paquin first came out as bisexual when she took part in a public service announcement in 2010 for the True Colors fund, a group dedicated to advocacy for the LGBT community; currently, the actress is wed to her costar Stephen Moyer.

In April, the happy couple announced they're expecting their first child together.
