#Quote
1[speaking about equality for The Elton John Give a Damn Campaign] I'm Anna Paquin. I'm bisexual and I give a damn.
2[on her bisexuality] 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.
3You'll live a full and happy life if your pursue things you think are important and live the life you want to live.
4I'm not very political. I'm also not American and I don't get to vote so my feelings are not really relevant.
5I just do what feels right. I think the great thing about getting to do what I do is that you can try out being a different person without having to screw up your life to do it.
6There are very few films or plays or anything about really happy people with perfect lives. Everyone is usually screwed up in some way and that is usually where the work comes in - figuring out how to make it believable and make it real to present someone's problems that you don't necessarily actually know anything about. I mean it is not challenging to be happy all the time. I don't think I could do it!
7If I don't do laundry today, I'm gonna have to buy new clothes tomorrow.
8Everything about being a teenager and not feeling like you fit in is just magnified by being a mutant!
9None of the characters I've played are really like me. That would be boring. It wouldn't be acting.
