Anna Paquin's Dogs Keep Her Grounded
Speaking from the Scream 4 premiere in Hollywood, Paquin added that despite their sometimes raucous behavior, being mom to Banjo and Splash has been a rewarding experience.
"They love you unconditionally, and you have to actually take care of them and it makes you step outside yourself," she said. "It doesn't matter how tired you are and if you've been up until whenever, they still need to be walked and loved and pet. I think it's good to put your own self in perspective."
