Anna Paquin covers Zooey Magazine April/ May 2012, with a photo shoot that took place shortly before she announced that she was expecting her first child with husband and True Blood co-star Stephen Moyer (who has other kids from a previous relationship). Which means the stylists on this shoot and the Fashion Magazine shoot were the first outsiders to realise she was pregnant.
Paquin’s interview is getting a lot of coverage for the quotes reminding people she came out as bisexual in a PSA a year ago. But her quotes about her appearance are subjectively more interesting. Clearly prodded about the gap in her front teeth, the 29-year-old said it didn’t bother her and nor would she “limit” herself professionally by getting plastic surgery.
On criticism of her looks: “Interestingly enough, I don’t really care about my teeth, but I think any woman on this planet could say, ‘I wish my ass was smaller, my arms were thinner and I had green eyes not brown.’ I think anyone is as critical as they have the energy to self-obsess, but I also know as an actress you are more limited if you interfere with your looks. If you have a whole bunch of work done with your teeth and your face and your boobs then you’re only going to play modern people. That’s a big choice to make. Very limiting.”
On being bisexual: “I’m sure for some people saying they’re bisexual feels less scary than making a statement that they’re gay. For me, it’s not really an issue because I’m someone who believes being bisexual is actually a thing. It’s not made up. It’s not a lack of decision. It’s not being greedy or numerous other ignorant things I’ve heard at this point. For a bisexual, it’s not about gender. That’s not the deciding factor for who they’re attracted to.” – via Zooey Magazine.
