Two and a Half Men actress: ‘I haven’t come out because I am out. I live out.’
Holland Taylor has revealed she is in a serious relationship with a “much younger woman.”
Two and a Half Men actress Holland Taylor has opened up about her sexuality in a recent interview.
“It’s the most wonderful, extraordinary thing that could have ever possibly happened in my life,” she told WNYC of her romance.
Holland declined to give any further details about her girlfriend, but added she is much younger.
The 72 year-old actress was also asked why it had taken her such a long time to come out as gay.
“I haven’t come out because I am out,” she replied. “I live out.”
“I feel at this point in the conversation it feels kind of awkward. Now I feel very very shy of it.
“I’ve been really wrestling with this lately because most of my relationships have been with women and I don’t like talking about them because I don’t like talking about the politics of it all.
“I think we’re ridiculous in this country (the US) about it. Ridiculous.’
The actress went on to say that she and her girlfriend has discussed the possibility of marriage.
“Given my generation it would not be something that would automatically occur to me,” she said.

“But as a symbol, as a pledge, as a plight one’s troth, it would be a wonderful thing to do.”
The actress has starred in a series of plays, films and TV shows, but is probably best known globally for her role as Jon Cryer and Charlie Sheen’s selfish mother on sitcom Two and a Half Men.
She has also had roles in The L Word, The Practice, Legally Blonde and The Naked Truth.
Her former co-star Sheen last month disclosed he is living with HIV – after being named by a number of tabloids.
The actor revealed he had been forced to pay millions to blackmailers and others who hoped to prosper from his condition, but that going public would allow him to “take back my freedom.”
