A little while back the two ladies finally confirmed that they are in a relationship!
Good for them! If you are happy… More power to you!
Reports that Paulson, 41, was dating Holland Taylor, 73, began to surface in early December after Taylor admitted that she was in a relationship with a woman and that it was the “most wonderful and extraordinary thing” that happened to her life. People began to notice her and Paulson’s witty Twitter banter, but nothing was officially confirmed
The age difference is always part of any article you read about them. Understandable.
This is what Paulson say about that:
“There’s a poignancy to being with someone older,” she said. “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.”
“It puts a kind of sharp light mixed with a sort of diffused light on something. 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.”
The two actresses met at a dinner party about 10 years ago, but Paulson had been dating actress Cherry Jones—who is 18 years older than she— at the time. Despite her relationship status, Paulson admitted to the publication that she thought Taylor was “probably the most exquisitely beautiful woman I’d ever seen.”
Paulson also said:
“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,” “What I can say absolutely is that I am in love, and that person happens to be Holland Taylor.”
