TWO-TIME Oscar winner JESSICA LANGE has found love again – with her fe­male co-star SARAH PAULSON!

After splitting from Pu­litzer Prize-winning playwright Sam Shepard after 27 years to­gether, the 63-year-old actress is making sweet music with actress Sarah Paulson, who stars with Jes­sica in “American Horror Story,” the FX TV series about ghostly en­counters.

“Jessica and Sarah’s friendship has recently bloomed into a full-on romance,” a close source confirmed to The ENQUIRER. “They’ve been dating for the past year, but they’ve been close friends for much longer than that.”

Ironically, Jessica turned to Sar­ah after her relationship with Sam collapsed in 2009.

“Sarah was a good friend and a shoulder to cry on,” said the source.

 “Eventually, their friendship blossomed into love.”

According to the source, Sarah, 37, who former­ly dated Tony winner Cherry Jones, has had a crush on Jessica since 2005, when they appeared on Broad­way together in “The Glass Menagerie.”

“Sarah even kept an auto­graphed photograph that Jessica signed for her years ago, and when she finally showed it to her, Jessica got a huge kick out of it,” added another insider.

 “Jessica’s always been a free spirit who doesn’t like to put labels on people. She says she loves whoever she loves, and Sarah makes her really happy.”
