Let’s get this out of the way: As a lesbian with a documented fondness for dating people older than me, I am obviously and logically obsessed with the relationship between 46-year-old Sarah Paulson and 78-year-old Holland Taylor. The two allegedly met at a party back when Paulson was dating someone else (the actress Cherry Jones, to be specific), with the actress telling The New York Times that Taylor was “probably the most exquisitely beautiful woman I’d ever seen.” I plotz!

But these two share more than just a common love of acting. Sarah and Holland have been together since 2015, though they first crossed paths at a dinner party roughly 14 years ago, according to The New York Times. At the time, Sarah was still with her ex-girlfriend Cherry Jones. Nonetheless, Sarah remembers thinking that Holland was "probably the most exquisitely beautiful woman" she'd ever seen.

“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," Sarah explained. "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.” (Source: www.goodhousekeeping.com)


Over the years, the couple has encountered public scrutiny regarding their 32-year age difference. In a 2016 interview with the New York Times, Paulson—known for her work on American Horror Story—confirmed her relationship with Taylor and explained how the public interest in her love life was unexpected.

“I didn’t choose to fall in love with the person I fell in love with. But I think why it’s interesting to people is that on paper, it’s unconventional,” she told Elle in 2018. “For a person who might find themselves in a situation that they fear will be misperceived or judged, maybe they could see me living my life in a way that is authentic to me—just trying to be as real as possible. If that inspires anybody else, that can’t be a bad thing.” (Source: www.oprahdaily.com)


In 1985, she co-starred with Lisa Eilbacher in the ABC detective series Me and Mom. Two years later, she played opposite Alan Arkin in the short-lived ABC sitcom Harry, in which she received "starring" billing. In 1990, Taylor reunited with former Bosom Buddies executive producers Thomas L. Miller and Robert L. Boyett for a role on their ABC sitcom Going Places, playing grand dame television producer Dawn St. Claire for the show's first 13 episodes. From 1992 to 1993, she starred in Norman Lear's The Powers That Be with John Forsythe and David Hyde Pierce, playing the wife of Forsythe's character, a U.S. senator.

She played the part of Judge Roberta Kittleson on The Practice. Originally intended to be a one-time appearance, the role lasted from 1998 to 2003. She won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series in 1999; in her acceptance speech, she is remembered for claiming the statue and exclaiming, "Overnight!" Taylor thanked David E. Kelley, The Practice's producer/writer and creator, for "giving me a chariot to ride up here on: A woman who puts a flag on the moon for women over 40—who can think, who can work, who are successes, who can cook, and who can COOK!"
