Kiwi Oscar-winner Anna Paquin relishes starring role in BBC News boob

Anna Paquin can add another accolade to her CV - newsroom favourite.

Kiwi Oscar winner Anna Paquin is thrilled her boobs were responsible for a recent BBC News scandal.

Broadcasting bosses at the Beeb boobed earlier this week when a reporter behind a news anchor was spotted watching a woman remove her bra on a computer screen.

The footage quickly went viral and, upon further inspection, it was revealed the clip was a scene from Paquin's TV vampire drama True Blood.

The 35-year-old had a good chuckle about the BBC boob on Saturday, tweeting: "MY BREASTS!! SO FUNNY ON SO MANY LEVELS. Now that I know what u guys were talking about this (is) some of the funniest s--t I've seen in a while!!! Thanks for the giggle! #FreeTheNipple."

She added: "ya know you've made [it] when... your t--s photo bomb the news at 10."

Her co-star in the scene, Robert Kazinsky, also had a laugh at the BBC's expense, tweeting: "Thankfully it's a shot of you and not my tombstone tied donut eating belly... She doesn't appreciate donuts. Which was my downfall, with nobody to share my weakness I ended up really quite fat."

Paquin's actor husband Stephen Moyer, who also appeared in True Blood, found the whole thing hilarious too, adding: "This is amazing and making me very happy...," adding, "Which scene is it? They have annoyingly blurred it out."

BBC bosses are reportedly investigating the matter after critics asked how a newsroom reporter could be seen checking out racy True Blood footage in full view of the cameras.
