Sarah Paulson has never followed what we might think of as a traditional trajectory. Indeed, the actress has risen to fame on American Horror Story over its eight seasons by playing conjoined twins, a drug addict and a witch, among other characters. But it isn’t just her acting that has gotten people talking.
Instead, what catches many people’s attentions is Paulson’s long-term relationship with fellow actress Holland Taylor, who is 76 years old. That’s a difference of 32 years between the 44-year-old star and her significant other. But Paulson herself has a message for those who think anything negative of their unlikely romance.
For many years, Sarah Paulson reportedly went on dates exclusively with men. She even had plans to marry playwright Tracy Letts, but the pair never made it down the aisle. Instead they broke up, and Paulson eventually started dating actress Cherry Jones. Then, Paulson revealed their relationship status in a way she hadn’t previously planned.
