X-Men 2 actress Anna Paquin has been in the film industry for 10 years - but she still gets surprised by some of her bizarre fans.

The 20-year-old, who won an OSCAR for her role in The Piano in 1994, admits she underestimates the effect the film has had on some very unusual sectors of society.

She laughs, "I was invited backstage to a wrestling event and this huge, hairy man called THE BEAST shook my hand and said, 'I loved you in The Piano.' I imagined him crying his eyes out watching the movie 'cause it's a real weepie."
