Two and a Half Men mom Holland Taylor, 72, recently spoke out on a podcast about being in a committed relationship with a woman.
Though the actress declined to reveal her partner’s identity on the WNYC Death, Sex and Money podcast last week, she did say that her love interest is a younger woman and the pair are discussing getting married.
“It’s the most wonderful, extraordinary thing that could have ever possibly happened in my life,” said Holland. “I haven’t come out because I am out,” she said, adding, “I live out.”
People magazine is now reporting that the “other woman” in this scenario is American Horror Story star Sarah Paulson.
Paulson, 40, has had one other relationship with a woman: Tony award-winning actress Cherry Jones. Before that, she only dated men.
The pair has posted numerous pictures on social media, but until now their context was a mystery.
Taylor posted this to Twitter, for example:
Paulson posted this:
And here’s the pair at an event in March of this year:
It’s pretty evident that the two are romantically involved, and for Holland, finding love has helped her climb out of a struggle with depression, which consumed her after the death of her mother.
“I wasn’t actually a danger to myself, but I really sometimes wondered how I could get out of the house to go get food,” Taylor told Parade in 2013. “I was on antidepressants for over 15 years, with very intermittent counselling. It was a very dead period of my life.”
