Published: December 4, 2015
Actresses dating: Sarah Paulson Holland Taylor, Two And A Half Men star Holland Taylor surprised many when she mentioned during a recent radio interview that she is in a relationship with a woman.
While the 72-year-old didn’t name her partner, rumours quickly swirled that it might be her frequent companion, American Horror Story star Sarah Paulson, who at 40 is 32 years her junior.
Now unearthed pictures have emerged which show the two enjoying a romantic candlelit dinner in January, suggesting the pair have been together for almost a year.
The picture was posted on Holland’s Twitter account 11 months ago and while the couple made no fuss or public announcement about their union, it turns out they dropped plenty of clues on social media.
In the photo, both actresses are glowing as they take in their Italian meal at a tiny table with a small candle at the center and two long-stem glasses filled with white wine.
It was captioned: ‘We are so up to no good.’
Taylor has on a black sweater over a white shirt and is wearing pretty red lipstick. Paulson is also in black and has a similar shade of lipstick on.
Along with the photo, shared on Holland’s Twitter account, is a snap of her hands on Sarah’s wrist where she is touching her pearl and diamond yellow gold bracelets. The caption was suggestive, reading, ‘About last night.’
In another image, there is a silver bowl of two scoops of ice cream next to a lit candle. There are also two spoons, suggesting the ladies were sharing the treat.
The caption for that photo reads, ‘Sarah Paulson ?@MsSarahPaulson Jan 17 @HollandTaylor interested in my Finn bracelets…’
In the theater icon’s podcast with WNYC.org in November, she would not name the woman she has fallen deeply in love with and in talks about marriage. She would only say she was much younger.
‘I’m sure [that] shocks a lot of people, and it startles me,’ said the blonde.
The Truman Show actress then added: ‘It’s the most wonderful extraordinary thing that could have ever possibly happened in my life.’
Taylor had no problem being upfront about her sexuality. ‘I haven’t come out because I am out, I live out.’
As far as walking down the aisle, it is not something Holland thought would be feasible.
‘Given my generation it would not be something that would automatically occur to me,’ said Holland.
‘But as a symbol, as a pledge, as a plighting one’s troth, it would be a wonderful thing to do,’ said the Bosom Buddies vet.
And she found love after having a meltdown over her life years after her mother passed away.
‘I just suddenly got the sense that I was living a very shallow life,’ The Practice star relayed.
‘I had not had wonderful relationships. I had stayed very solo.’
Then she had what she calls an ‘aging spurt’ at 70 and she was depressed her Tony-nominated one-woman Broadway show, Ann, ended its run in 2013.
‘I was always at a certain safe remove I think,’ Holland said.
‘No matter how much I might have loved a person, I was at some sort of a safe ground, still with a foot on my own island.’
Sarah only dated men until she started a relationship with 24 actress Cherry Jones, 59, in 2004. They split in 2009. In 2013 Paulson told Broadway.com her sexuality is ‘fluid.’
This admission comes just two weeks after Taylor’s Two And A Half Men co-star Charlie Sheen revealed to Matt Lauer during the Today Show he was HIV-positive.
‘It’s a hard three letters to absorb. It’s a turning point in one’s life,’ the 50-year-old Wall Street actor said.
Sheen said he made the announcement to end a smear campaign and extortion efforts.
‘I have to put a stop to this onslaught, this barrage of attacks and of sub-truths and very harmful and mercurial stories that are about me, threatening the health of so many others that couldn’t be further from the truth,’ the son of actor Martin Sheen added.
It is not known if Sheen and Taylor are still in communication now that the show has ended. In 2011, Charlie was replaced by Ashton Kutcher.
