True Blood actress Anna Paquin's answered Larry King's questions about her sexuality during a recent interview on his TV show.

Was Paquin a "non-practicing bisexual” King queried. "Well, I am married to my husband," Paquin replied, referring to her co-star husband, Stephen Moyer. "And we are happily, monogamously married."

King then asked if the actress was bisexual, referring to the time before her marriage. "Well, I don't think it's a past-tense thing,"  replied the actress. "Are you still straight if you are with somebody?… If you were to break up with them or if they were to die, it doesn't prevent your sexuality from existing. It doesn't really work like that."

Eighty-year-old King - who has been married eight times – countered with a piece of wry advice. "Stop with wishful thinking." 

Paquin declared her bisexualtiy in 2010. She married Moyer, 44, the same year, and in 2012 gave birth to the couple's twins, Charlie and Poppy.

The 32-year-old actress also spoke about shooting sex scenes while pregnant with twins, "We tried to time it quite carefully and up until the last couple of episodes there was a lot of creative costuming. And then they just CGI-ed out the bump."
