Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor were hard to wrap my head around…but now, I’m INVESTED.
In a recent interview with the New York Times, the American Horror Story actress sounds like, super in love and super cool. Like, can I be friends with them yet? What? No? Hmph.
A little history: the two were first linked back in December of 2015, but in reality have been together for a little more than a year. And Sarah’s in awe of the couple- who have an approximate 31 year age difference. She said:
“My choices in romantic partners have not been conventional, and therefore the idea that it is ‘other’ makes it compelling.”
Sarah and Holland first met over a decade ago at a party and then eventually crossed paths again which led to them following each other on Twitter. And then…sexy times. And she’s not a lesbian- in fact, she doesn’t want to be labeled as anything, right now. She relayed:
“If my life choices had to be predicated based on what was expected of me from a community on either side, that’s going to make me feel really straitjacketed, and I don’t want to feel that. What I can say absolutely is that I am in love, and that person happens to be Holland Taylor.”
And here’s her two cents on dating older women:
“I had a complicated home life, and my teachers, predominantly my theater teachers and my English teachers, were very dedicated to taking care of me in a particular way. And in doing so, I think I developed a very easy rapport with people older than myself.
There’s a poignancy to being with someone older. I think there’s a greater appreciation of time and what you have together and what’s important, and it can make the little things seem very small. It puts a kind of sharp light mixed with a sort of diffused light on something. I can’t say it any other way than there’s a poignancy to it, and a heightened sense of time and the value of time.”

Yeah, I agree with that. 32 years is quite the gap, isn’t it? But hey, maybe it’s made them stronger.
What do YOU think of the couple?
