Stephen Moyer: How Anna Paquin Told Me She Was Bisexual
Millions of fans were shocked when Anna Paquin announced in April that she was bisexual. Not Stephen Moyer, her True Blood paramour and real-life fiance.
"It wasn't something that was kept from me," Moyer, 40, says in the July issue of Playboy, out Friday.
The British actor tells the mag that costar Paquin, 27, was extremely forthcoming about her past. "I've never been in a relationship before in which, literally within the first three days, all the cards were laid out."
In an online public service announcement for the Give a Damn Campaign, aimed at promoting gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender equality, Paquin said "I'm bisexual, and I give a damn." The Oscar-winning actress hasn't elaborated since that unexpected disclosure.
"I condone what she has done 100 percent," Moyer tells Playboy of Paquin. "It's her business to talk about it, not mine. It doesn't change anything. I'm proud of who she is."
The couple became engaged in August 2009. "It's not as though people I've been with before haven't been loving, but with Anna it's just about pure trust, on camera and off," Moyer gushes. "I have never trusted anybody like I trust Anna."
In the interview, Moyer also opens up about his own sexual awakening. "I was quite young when I started doing all right, below legal age and with somebody I knew very well," he teases of losing his virginity.
"It happened outdoors and was very naughty and unexpected. In my little village some girls reached maturity at a young age, and there was a lot of 'you show me yours and I'll show you mine' stuff happening, lots of looking and a little bit of touching too, from a very young age."
