Holland Taylor hilariously calls out Gillian Anderson for thirsting over Sarah Paulson
Holland Taylor couldn’t resist stepping in and playfully calling out Sex Education star Gillian Anderson after the actor was publicly thirsting over Taylor’s partner Sarah Paulson.
It all began when a fan shared a picture of two women alongside the caption: “gillian anderson and sarah paulson i believe i need to see it”.
This prompted a Twitter user to photoshop Anderson and Paulson’s faces onto the image which saw two women posing lovingly together.
American author Glennon Doyle then chose to stir the pot as she pointed out that it technically meant Anderson’s hand was on Paulson’s butt like the original picture.

To which The Crown star hilariously replied: “About time!”
The comment soon made its way onto Taylor’s feed who then stated: “Hang on a sec…”
The 79-year-old, who has been dating Paulson since 2015, left fans howling with laughter as one wrote: “These are the interactions that make this bird app worth it.”
“another reason why i adore holland so much,” one fan wrote while another added: “HOLLANDskkekkdjdlaksjs but i mean it is GILLIAN we have to let is slide”.
One fan commented: “And this,is why Sarah loves you so much, you have a great sense of humor!!

“And we all know just what Sarah feels about her beloved Holland…love of her life! ❤️ Sooo, all the world’s a stage, and we but players…;)”
Another fan added: “And this,is why Sarah loves you so much, you have a great sense of humor!! And we all know just what Sarah feels about her beloved Holland…love of her life! ❤️ Sooo, all the world’s a stage, and we but players…;)”
Indeed, the couple were already both titans of the acting world before they delighted fans by confirming their romance in 2015.
Their relationship has proven that age is just a number as they’ve helped normalise age-gap relationships within Hollywood and the queer community.
Ocean’s 8 star Paulson made it clear she ignores those criticising the 32-year age gap between her and Taylor.
“If anyone wants to spend any time thinking I’m strange for loving the most spectacular person on the planet, then that’s their problem,” she once said. “I’m doing just fine.”
She also pointed out in an interview with the Guardian that there was a double standard when it comes to reactions about the age differences between heterosexual and queer couples in Hollywood.
“I don’t remember people going nuts about Michael Douglas and Catherine-Zeta Jones, in terms of their age difference,” she said.
