True Blood actress Anna Paquin has said she’s not getting much sleep since her twins were born ten months ago.
She tells Angeleno magazine, “Sleep’s not a very big part of my life right now, But that’s fine. It’s kind of part of the deal.”
With a few projects currently in the works – including X Men: Days of Future Past – the 30-year-old says she’s grateful.
“This is one of the jobs where you don’t get to pick the timing, and when it rains, it pours. When there are interesting things happening and interesting people you want to work with, you kind of jump on it and figure out the details, which thankfully have all kind of fallen into place. And then I’ve had a really, really awesome last few months.”
Discussing the time when she won an Oscar for best supporting actress for The Piano at the age of 11 – Paquin looks back at the experience with awe.
She shares, “I mean, it’s a pretty bizarre and awesome thing to happen to a small child living in New Zealand. It consistently, sort of implausibly, has afforded me enormous opportunities and opened a door for me that probably wouldn’t have opened otherwise. I’m very grateful, but it’s just kind of part of the texture of my childhood. That was 20 years ago.”
