At an age where most of us were still eating Play-Doh, “True Blood” actress Anna Paquin was accepting an Academy Award for her supporting work in 1993′s The Piano at only 11 years old, becoming the second youngest person in history to snag an Oscar. An award like that could easily trigger a swift spiraling down (see the actual youngest ever Oscar winner, Tatum O’Neil, as proof!), but Paquin kept her feet on the ground and her head on straight, taking big parts in popular flicks like Almost Famous, X-Men and She’s All That throughout her teen years. After attending Columbia University for two years, the actress left school to pursue acting full-time, which she’s successfully done for years, currently popping up on our TV screens each week as Sookie Stackhouse on HBO hit “True Blood.” Now as Sookie, Paquin can finally experience all those wild, scandalous times she dodged all these years!
