Anna Paquin is very comfortable with sexuality. Whether it be discussing her own bisexuality or having to “simulate sex” with her own husband Stephen Moyer on True Blood, Anna doesn’t have a problem openly discussing sex.
In V magazine‘s Transformation issue, which hits stands July 7, Anna discusses how she admitted to being bisexual in a 2010 PSA.
“Frankly, no one had ever asked me before,” she said. “My sexuality is something I’m completely comfortable with and open about.”
“There’s a lot of prejudice toward us but the more people talk about it, the less of a big deal it will be,” Anna added. “And that will be better for everyone.”
And Anna’s level of comfort with sexuality also translates on screen. Anna plays Sookie Stackhouse on True Blood and has had to share some sex scenes with her real-life husband Stephen Moyer.
“Maybe it should be weird, simulating sex with your husband in front of people,” Anna said. “But it’s really not.”
“When it’s a love scene with someone you actually love, there’s no feeling like, ‘Can I touch him here, can I touch him there?’ ” she explained. “You know what your boundaries are—or what they aren’t, I suppose.”
