True Blood’s Anna Paquin Supports A Wonderful Cause

May 15, 2010 by  

Anna Paquin and True Blood costar Grant Bowler are both supporting a wonderful cause. Both will be appearing in the coffee table book The Beauty Book to support finding a cure for cancer. The Beauty Book, compiled by Australian celebrity photographer Darren Tieste, is being used in an effort to raise money for cancer research. Tieste is doing this in honor of his friend Natalie Sattler, who died in 2008 from brain cancer.

However, Tieste had a difficult time at first getting celebrities to join his cause, but was eventually helped when his first A-list star (and a former costar of Anna‘s), Hugh Jackman, agreed to be involved. After that, more people were willing to be involved, and Tieste was able to get Anna to be a part of The Beauty Book. When discussing the coup of getting Anna to join in, he said,

Anna‘s a great girl, we had three hours with her. She was a big one to get, and the sweetest girl, so down to earth and easy in front of the camera.”

Thank you, Anna and Grant, for supporting such a great cause, and thank you to Darren Tieste for setting up The Beauty Book. The proceeds from the sale of The Beauty Book will go to charities including SNOG (Sydney Neuro-Oncology Groug) and ABTA(the American Brain Tumor Association).

    Great stuff! We new that Anna was sweet and she always looks fabulous in front of the camera! Good on Grant a s well! An Aussie/Kiwi and a Kiwi doing us proud!

    Thanks Isis!

    • I know! I registered so that I can get a copy of the book when it comes out! LOL, I’m just thrilled that Anna worked in it, but I suspect it has to do with her sister, because I heard that her sister has cancer too. I just hope Anna’s sister is doing well!

      (I also love that my other leading man, Hugh Jackman, is in it too! :D)

        Looks like the Photographer, Darrin, was looking at Aussies and Kiwis for his shoot, but then, it will be a big book, so it will be international.

        Yes, Anna’s sister has it in hr brain, I think? I also hope all is well with her.

        • Yes, that’s what I’ve heard as well. Anyways, I send the other lovely Ms. Paquin lots of love and support because no one should have to go through what she’s going through.
