Yikes. If this is typical for Larry King Now, it’s a much different show than we thought.
True Blood star Anna Paquin was recently a guest of the 80-year-old host, and King quickly became deeply fascinated with Paquin’s sexuality. Several years ago Paquin came out as bisexual, and even though she is happily married to co-star Stephen Moyer questions such as King’s continue to come at Paquin.
After a ton of sex-related questions, King finally got down to what was obviously on his rather perplexed mind:
King: “Are you a non-practicing bisexual?”
Paquin: “Well, I am married to my husband and we are happily, monogamously married.”
King: “But you were bisexual?”
Paquin: “Well, I don’t think it’s a past-tense thing.”
Paquin: “No. 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 work like that.”
Poor Larry King. He is probably just confused about what the kids are doing these days, and isn’t trying to seem so clueless.
