Stephen Moyer on Bisexual Fiancee Anna Paquin: "I'm Proud of Who She Is"

The True Blood stud opens up to Playboy about his costar and bride-to-be in a new interview

True Blood costars and real-life lovebirds Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin surprised fans last August when they announced they were engaged -- but it was nothing compared to the shock they felt when Paquin, 27, came out as bisexual the following April. But while the public may have been caught off guard by Paquin's announcement, Moyer says he was well aware of his fiancee's sexuality when they decided to wed.

“I’ve never been in a relationship before in which, literally within the first three days, all the cards were laid out, the actor, 40, told Playboy in its July issue. "It wasn’t something that was kept from me. I condone what she has done 100 percent, and it’s her business to talk about it, not mine. It doesn’t change anything. I’m proud of who she is.”

As for the other qualities he loves about his soon-to-be-wife, well, the list goes on. 

“She doesn’t pull punches. I’ll take 74,000 words to express an emotion because I fear hurting someone’s feelings. Anna will do it in three words. But we trust each other so implicitly that there’s never anything hurtful; it always comes from a loving place. It’s not as though people I’ve been with before haven’t been loving, but with Anna it’s just about pure trust, on camera and off. I have never trusted anybody like I trust Anna.

Even when there was actual distance between them, at the beginning of their relationship, Moyer says their closeness and emotionally intimacy prevailed.

"During the show’s first season I had to go back to London and she went back to New York. I wish I had bought shares in Skype, because we Skyped every night for three or four hours. It felt as though part of me had been removed when Anna and I were apart.”
