True Blood star Anna Paquin rebuffed talk show host Larry King’s misinformed line of questioning regarding her sexuality in an interview on this week’s episode of Larry King Now.
“Are you a non-practicing bisexual?” King asked.
“Well, I am married to my husband,” Paquin replied, referring to spouse and co-star Stephen Moyer. “And we are happily, monogamously married.”
“But you were bisexual?” King pressed.
“Well, I don’t think it’s a past-tense thing,” she said.
When King said, “No?,” Paquin pushed back.
“Are you still straight if you are with somebody[?]” she asked King, who has been married eight times to seven different women. “If you were to break up with them or if they were to die, it doesn’t prevent your sexuality from existing. It doesn’t really work like that.” …
Paquin publicly announced her bisexuality in 2010. As People Magazine reported last month, she celebrated LGBT Pride Month in part by declaring on Twitter that she was “proud to be a happily married bisexual mother. Marriage is about love not gender.”
