Some interesting news about Anna Paquin  a few days ago:

Anna Paquin Condemns Bigotry and Says She's a 'Proud Bisexual' in New Social Media Post

Anna Paquin is letting it be known that she's proud of who she is. The Flack actress took to Instagram on Tuesday to share that she's proud to be bisexual after receiving hateful comments on an earlier post aimed to celebrating Pride Month, which kicks off in June.

"I'm a #proudbisexual who is married to a wonderful human who happens to be a man," she shared, adding in the caption, "If he doesn't have a problem with it why should anyone else?" 

The post came after Paquin celebrated International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia on May 17 and received a barrage of hateful comments.

The actress went on to defend herself and the LGBTQ+ community in a series of posts condemning the backlash she received.



During a 2012 interview with Zooey Magazine, Paquin opened up about LGBTQ+ rights and their importance.

“If you’re going to talk about some cause in a way that’s meaningful, you should identify why it means something to you,” she explained.

“For a bisexual, it’s not about gender. That’s not the deciding factor for who they’re attracted to.”

Anna Paquin and Holliday Grainger now have something else in common.  Paquin gave  birth to fraternal twins in 2012 and  Grainger gave birth to twins this year.  Congrats!

"If you’re in the mood for a super-cheesy lesbian love film, look no further! Don’t let that description put you off, though. While it’s a little corny at times, Tell It To The Bees  is a lush period drama about two women falling in love in provincial, post-war Scotland. Holliday Grainger (who we would watch in basically anything, to be honest) plays Lydia, a young mother who forms a bond with the new doctor in town, Jean, played by Anna Paquin.

Jean is a beekeeper, and connects with Lydia’s son Charlie through these buzzing messengers. The bees also act as symbols of the natural forces that hold Jean and Lydia in their sway. Naturally, the conservative town does not approve. The early parts of the film, as they flirt, gaze and fall in love, are particularly moving and sweet."

"Paquin and Grainger have excellent chemistry together; their scenes are without a doubt the highlight of the film. When they do finally consummate their relationship, it’s a moment that both feels earned and is very sexy without getting too Blue is the Warmest Color (2013)."
