Holland Taylor & Sarah Paulson: Lesbian Couple Makes Public Debut
Holland Taylor surprised a lot of people — including herself — when the 72-year-old "Two and a Half Men" star announced that she was in a lesbian relationship with a much younger woman! Holland wouldn't name her lover, but The National ENQUIRER had already caught her out with 40-year-old actress Sarah Paulson, best known for her kinky recurring roles on the hit cable series "American Horror Story."
The couple confirmed their closeness in Dec. 2015 in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Sherman Oaks, as Sarah carefully guarded Holland against some pouring rain as they attended a friend's birthday party. This wasn't Sarah's first time looking out for an older lover, either. The ENQUIRER's Mike Walker had once caught Sarah getting cuddly with Diane Keaton, and Sarah also dated Broadway actress Cherry Jones — who's 19 years older than the blonde beauty!
Holland, who found fame late as the toxic mother of characters played by Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer, had never married. Still, some fans were surprised when the veteran actress said in a radio interview that her new lover was "the most wonderful, extraordinary thing that could have ever possibly happened in my life!"
At the time of their public debut, Sarah was preparing for her Emmy-winning turn as Marcia Clark in "American Crime Story." Meanwhile, Holland was already insisting that her public declaration of lesbian love was no big deal. "I haven't come out," she said, "because I live out!"
