Holland Taylor Dating “American Horror Story” Star Sarah Paulson


Just days after Holland Taylor shared she’s been dating a woman, Entertainment Tonight is reporting the Two and a Half Men star is actually seeing American Horror Story actress Sarah Paulson.

If it’s true, can we say that’s a pretty amazing couple right there.

A “source” tells the site that Taylor, 72, has been dating Paulson, 40 for “a few months.”

In her interview with WNYC, Taylor didn’t name her lady fair, but she did admit there was an age gap.


“There’s a very big age difference between us which I’m sure shocks a lot of people, and it startles me,” Taylor teased, “But as they say, ’If she dies, she dies.'”

Paulson was previously involved with Tony winner Cherry Jones, 59, for five years before their split in 2009. She doesn’t like to label her sexuality, though, saying
“All I can say is, I’ve done both, and I don’t let either experience define me.”

While Taylor and Paulson haven’t hit the red carpet together (we don’t think), they have had flirtatious banter on social media.

As for where this alleged liaison is heading, neither woman seems to be in a rush to put a timetable on it—or a ring.

“Given my generation, [marriage] would not be something that would automatically occur to me,” said Taylor. “But she’s mentioned it because, just from a spiritual point of view, from a heart point of view … as a deed that has a very rich symbolic gesture to it, it has its attraction.”
