Personal Quote:

[on her bisexuality] For me, it's not really an issue because I'm someone who believes being bisexual is actually a thing. It's not made up. It's not a lack of decision. It's not being greedy or numerous other ignorant things I've heard at this point. For a bisexual, it's not about gender. That's not the deciding factor for who they're attracted to. See more »

Trivia:

One of the few actors or actresses to win an Academy Award without being a professional actor beforehand. Anna didn't plan on acting, even when she went to audition for the part that won her an Oscar. She was accompanying her sister to the audition. See more »
