Anna Paquin has said her bisexuality is not a problem for her marriage because she doesn't view the two things as mutually exclusive.

The True Blood star is married to Stephen Moyer, who she met when they filmed the show's pilot together, and told HuffPost Live why her sexuality was not an issue.

According to Mail Online, she said: "The reason I feel like it's important to talk about this stuff is that the more normal and, frankly, mundane and boring this stuff becomes, I think the better it's going to be for everyone who is part of our community.

"There's people that are going to probably go to their grave thinking whatever they think about the LGBT community. That's their problem, not mine. And there's people that think that monogamy and bisexuality are mutually exclusive. Again, their problem not mine."

Last month, in recognition of LGBT Pride Month she sent a tweet that said: "Proud to be a happily married bisexual mother. Marriage is about love not gender."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

It feels like friends are few and far between. If you're not getting the help you need, ask why. It may be because you have been so preoccupied with work. Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
