Anna Paquin shocked her True Blood fans when she came out as being bisexual.
Her announcement was part of a PSA called Give a Damn put out April 1 by the gay rights organization, True Colors Fund.
But only now is the actress offering an explanation as to why she chose to make her sexual orientation public, RadarOnline.com can report.
“I’m not someone who endlessly talks about her personal life for no reason but 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 told Zap2it. “So when I was asked to participate in that PSA, it was just obvious. ‘Well, of course I will.'”
