True Blood’s Anna Paquin is featured in this month’s Zooey Magazine. Anna is seen in two photos from the photoshoot below as well as a video.
Additionally, here’s are some excerpts from the interview Anna gave to the magazine:
In an era where reality TV, Twitter, and TMZ have excessively fed our addiction for knowing all there is to know about stars? Any mystery has seemingly faded. At least I thought it had until I sat down for a sunny March afternoon lunch at Santa Monica’s M Kitchen with Anna Paquin and the orange peach smoothie she ordered. Successfully concealing a baby bump under layers of charcoal wool along with those Raisinette eyes hiding behind turquoise shades, I realized that she just might be our contemporary mysterious starlet.
Despite being part of the Xmen ensemble, Paquin didn’t actually step into a true starring role until she took on psychic waitress/ half-faerie/ “fang banger” Sookie Stackhouse in HBO’s triumphant True Blood. Leaving behind that little brunette girl from New Zealand who captured our hearts in the 90’s, she strutted onto our TVs as blonde, sassy, sexy and southern…and even more bewildering than before.
As an adolescent, I was obsessed with Nancy Drew mysteries. Intentional or not, Paquin has been just that. A mystery. One to keep her personal life fiercely private, she set off a whirl of media curiosity when she declared her bi-sexuality in a 2010 PSA for the Give a Damn campaign while engaged to husband and True Blood co-star Stephen Moyer. Her answer to the numerous inquiries of why she chose to come out now? “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.”
Sitting across from me stroking her unpolished, neatly cut nails and keeping a protective grasp on any and all words departing from her lips, I knew after getting “I don’t know” and “I can’t answer that” to several questions, I was going to have to convert into my beloved girl detective if I was going to get any insights into who she was.
