Holland Taylor all but flat-out confirmed her relationship with Sarah Paulson during a recent radio interview on WNYC.
“There’s a very big age difference between us which I’m sure shocks a lot of people, and it startles me,” Taylor said jokingly during the interview when discussing her girlfriend and her journey living an out life with her current girlfriend.
Following the segment, Entertainment Tonight confirmed that Taylor is in fact dating American Horror Story actress Paulson. At 72 and 40, respectively, there is definitely a big gap between the two. But just as love knows no gender, it also knows no age.
Not only have the two been seen getting cozy at events together over the past few months, but they have also been openly corresponding on social media. After putting the pieces together with Taylor’s interview, the relationship really doesn’t seem all that surprising.

As for Paulson, she has been very careful about discussing her sexuality in the past.
In a November PrideSource interview she explained, “I don’t let having been with a man make me think I am heterosexual, or make me want to call myself that, because I know I have been attracted to women — and have lived with women. So, for me, I’m not looking to define myself, and I’m sorry if that is something that is seen as a rejection of or an unwillingness to embrace in a public way, but it’s simply not. It’s simply what’s true for me, and that’s all I can speak to.”
