True Blood star Anna Paquin, who came out as bisexual in April, says it wasn’t a secret or a big deal in an interview with website Zap2It. “It wasn't like it was a big secret,” says the Academy Award-winning actress, who announced she is bisexual while filming a PSA for True Colors First, an LGBT rights organization. “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. Obviously I know that one person's voice doesn't necessarily do that much, but I just wanted to do my bit.”

Paquin is engaged to Stephen Moyer, her costar in the hit HBO series, which will begin its third season June 13.
