Sarah Paulson Opens Up About Her Relationship With Holland Taylor

After news hit the internet that actresses Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor were probably an item, the duo was inundated with well wishes on social media.

Now, Paulson is discussing the relationship for the first time, complete with commentary on her preference for older women (she’s 41 to Holland’s 73) and her refusal to define her sexuality.

“My choices in romantic partners have not been conventional, and therefore the idea that it is ‘other’ makes it compelling,” Paulson said of the reaction to her relationship back in December.

“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,” continued Paulson when asked about her sexual preference. “What I can say absolutely is that I am in love, and that person happens to be Holland Taylor.”

“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.”

She concluded, “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.”
