After sneaking the revelation that she is bisexual into a public service announcement in April, Anna Paquin is opening up about the issue. “It wasn’t like it was a big secret. It was just a cause I cared about and privately supported but not one that I had ever had an opportunity to speak out about in a way that would be useful,” she tells Zap2it. “Obviously, as someone who identifies as bisexual, those are issues I really care about. And frankly, I don’t see why everyone doesn’t care about them,” she says of Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors Fund, which lobbies for equal rights issues.

The Oscar winner plays Sookie Stackhouse on hit HBO?series True Blood, and is engaged to co-star Stephen Moyer.
