Actress Sarah Paulson, 44, has been coupled with Holland Taylor, 76, since 2015. The gorgeous couple show that age is just number.

While many people notice their 32-year age gap, the celebrity same-sex couple couldn’t be happier. The American Horror Story actress has spoken out about people’s judgements about their relationship.

“If someone wants to spend any time thinking I’m strange for loving the most spectacular person on the planet, then that’s their problem.” Paulson told Town and Country in an interview, reported People.

“What I can say absolutely is that I am in love, and that person happens to be Holland Taylor.”

“I do not want to be defined by who I share my bed, my home, my soul with. We love each other.”

Paulson described her partner as “probably the most exquisitely beautiful woman she had ever seen.”

How did Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor meet?

The romance between Paulson and the Two and a Half Men actress actually blossomed over Twitter.

In an interview on Watch What Happens Live, Paulson said: “It’s a long story. We met a very, very long time ago.

“I was with someone else.”

The American Horror Story actor explained she first met Taylor a while before they actually started dating.

Paulson said that she and Holland bumped into one another again, years later, while helping to promote a group that was collaborating with actor Martha Plimpton.

“We were doing a thing at Martha Plimpton’s house,” the star explained.

“We sort of breezed by each other and started following each other on Twitter.”

“It was for an organisation that she was working with and we were both doing a little PSA for it.

“We sort of breezed by each other and started following each other on Twitter.”

Fellow guest on the show Billy Eichner then asked Paulson: “Holland Taylor slid into your DMs?”

“She actually did!” responded Paulson.

Who is Holland Taylor?

Holland Taylor is an American playwright and actress, best known for her role as Evelyn Harper on the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men between 2003 and 2015.

Taylor, who usually keeps her personal life private, spoke to InStyle about her relationship with Paulson.

She said: “I’m from an older generation and for me it’s quite surprising how people talk about personal things of any kind in the press. It’s not natural to me. That doesn’t mean it’s not good, it’s just taken some adjusting.

“And Sarah, of course, is from a different generation, she’s very much of today. It was hard for me at first to go through that membrane of being a private person. But it’s been good for me to do it in such a lovely way.”
