Anna Paquin Explains Bisexuality to Larry King: 'It Doesn't Really Work Like That'

True Blood star Anna Paquin, 32, sat down with Larry King, 80, for his show Larry King Now, when the topic turned to Paquin's bisexuality.

In particular, King was curious about Paquin identifying as bisexual despite being married to her True Blood co-star Stephen Moyer, 44.

When asked by King if she considers herself a "non-practicing bisexual," Paquin was quick to clarify.

"Well, I am married to my husband and we are happily, monogamously married," she said simply.

"But you were bisexual?" King pressed.

"Well, I don’t think it's a past-tense thing," she explained.

"Are you still straight if you are with somebody, and -- 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 has been open about her bisexuality in the past, coming out in 2010 in a PSA for the Give a Damn campaign, which featured celebs speaking out for equality.

In June, she celebrated LGBT Pride Month with this tweet.
