Happy 31st Birthday, Anna Paquin! Track Her Style Evolution From Child Star To True Blood Mama

While the rest of us were jamming carrot sticks up our nose and arguing about which Power Ranger was the coolest (Red, obvs), 11 year-oldĀ Anna Paquin was winning Oscars. And now 20 years later, she’s getting naked with her super hot vampire husband/co-starĀ Stephen Moyer on True Blood. So yeah, it’s safe to say that Anna Paquin is doing it very right, and has been for quite some time.

Even though she’s turning just 31 years-old today, Anna’s already had a career as full as most old timers! She navigated the tricky path from uber-successful child actress to teen starlet, appearing in personal favorites like She’s All That (oh hell yes) and Almost Famous. She transformed into an action hero for the big budget X-Men franchise, and now she’s adapting to her most important role yet: Mother of twins Charlie and Poppy! She’s done it all during her three decades on this planet, so to celebrate her big day, let’s take a look back at Anna’s style evolution. Enjoy!
