Holland Taylor and Sarah Paulson are getting SERIOUS.
When news broke that the two have been secretly dating for at least six months, everyone was kinda shocked, as Paulson is 40 and Taylor’s 72. That’s quite the age diff. ANYHOW, both actresses attended the Broadway premiere of School of Rock The Musical on Sunday, Dec. 6, where Taylor opened up about her significant other:
While the two women showed up together on Sunday night, they walked the red carpet separately. On the carpet, Taylor told reporters that she was surprised by the attention her relationship was garnering — particularly their recent Twitter exchange. “People should be interested in their own lives,” Taylor, 72, joked. Paulson posted her Broadway ticket stub from Ripcord earlier that day and wrote to her girlfriend: “@HollandTaylor You sure are a genius. #favoriteactress.” Naturally, the Internet went crazy.
Hours later, the Two and a Half Men alum praised her girlfriend, 40, on the red carpet with Us. “SheÃ¢â¬â¢s a wonderful person and a brilliant actress!” the Legally Blonde star said. Meanwhile, Paulson was slightly more coy about her romantic partner.
“I donÃ¢â¬â¢t know why anybody wants to know about it at all Ã¢â¬â whatÃ¢â¬â¢s so fascinating about it?” the American Horror Story actress speculated. “I donÃ¢â¬â¢t know. To me, it feel a little Ã¢â¬â whatÃ¢â¬â¢s all the hubbub about? I get it to a degree but then on some other level I think itÃ¢â¬â¢s sort of silly.”

Taylor confirmed late last month in a radio interview that she is gay and dating a significantly younger woman, but refused to name the mystery lady. “There’s a very big age difference between us,” Holland told WNYC on Nov. 25.
“Which I’m sure shocks a lot of people, and it startles me. But you know, it’s not a statement original to me Ã¢â¬â I’ve heard it as a joke once in my past, but as they say, ‘If she dies, she dies.’ Ã¢â¬Â¦ She thought it was funny when I said it too.”
I mean, again, kinda jarring but also I love both actresses so much, I also kinda think it’s cute. What do YOU think about this couple?
