Anna Paquin is getting attention after hitting the red carpet using a cane. The 41-year-old actress shared that she’s been dealing with undisclosed health issues that have made mobility a challenge.

The Oscar winner, who stars in the new movie A Bit of Light, told People that it’s been a “difficult” two years.

"It hasn't been easy," she said, noting that she’s also had some issues with her speech. However, a source also told People that Anna will hopefully make a full recovery.

Still, Anna said that she’s excited to support her new movie, which was directed by her husband of 14 years, True Blood alum Stephen Moyer.

"My first love was independent filmmaking," she said. "That's how I entered the film industry. I was working with people who were all about telling stories and telling them with integrity and truth."

Anna also shared that Stephen is her “favorite person” to direct her—and said she wouldn’t be working with him if she didn’t think he was good at what he does. “I'm not sentimental when it comes to work,” she said.

Anna didn’t dive more into her health, but she previously told TODAY that privacy is important to her. “I’ve always been very private. I’m not as neurotic about it as I was when I was younger,” she said. “I don’t want people to know too much about my real, inner private life.”

Stephen also keeps the couple’s life together pretty under wraps, although he shares little behind-the-scenes glimpses of married life with them here and there.

Worth noting: He also called Anna his “incredibly talented soul mate” on Instagram back in 2022:

Get better soon, Anna!
