I don't think it's a past-tense kind of thing. It doesn't prevent your sexuality from existing. It doesn't really work like that'

Anna Paquin, currently starring in the seventh and final season of HBO's True Blood, says her marriage to co-star Stephen Moyer doesn't mean she's no longer bisexual.

Paquin was discussing her marriage this week on Larry King Now and was asked by the host: 'Are you a non-practicing bisexual?'

Paquin replied: 'Well, I am married to my husband and we are happily monogamously married.'

King: 'So you were bisexual?'

Paquin: 'Well, I don't think it's a past-tense kind of thing. It doesn't prevent your sexuality from existing. It doesn't really work like that.'

Paquin, who won an Academy Award for her performance in The Piano, said she 'just never thought it was a big deal' to be a bisexual.

She is happy to see more people being open about their sexuality these days.

'I think it's fantastic. ... I do know the more people who are outspoken and advocate for same-sex unions and LGBT rights, I have to believe that that makes a difference and the level of ignorance and hatred becomes less acceptable.'
