How Long Have Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor Been Dating?
Since they started dating, the pair haven’t shied away from showcasing their love in public. Despite the ongoing criticism about their 32-year age difference, they continue to embrace their unconventional romance.
So, how long have Paulson and Taylor been enjoying their lives as romantic partners and when exactly did they first fall hard for one another?
Paulson and Taylor’s romance is a modern love story
Nowadays, the most conventional way to meet a significant other is through social media.
We live in a digital age where meeting people online has become the norm and many solid relationships have come from dating apps.
While meeting people online might not work out in everyone’s favor, it was definitely a win-win situation for Paulson and Taylor.
The two actresses have been dating since 2015 and while they first met many years before becoming romantically involved, it wasn’t until Taylor slid into Paulson’s DM’s when their relationship officially took off.
“It’s a long story. We met a very, very long time ago. I was with someone else, she was too then. And then there was, like, a Twitter thing that happened,” the American Horror Story actress shared while appearing on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen earlier this year.
Years after their first meeting, Paulson and Taylor ran into each other again while attending an event.
Seeing as though both of them were single at the time, it didn’t take long for the pair to kick off their romantic relationship in the most modern way—on Twitter.
“We were doing a thing at Martha Plimpton’s house,” Paulson shared. “It was for an organization that she was working with and we were both doing a little PSA for it and breezed by one another and then started following each other on Twitter.”
Paulson’s American Horror Story costar Billy Eichner then chimed in, “So Holland Taylor slid into your DMs?” to which the actress replied, “She actually did! Pretty great.”
The public can’t help but fascinate over the couple’s relationship
Despite their almost 32-year age difference, Paulson and Taylor have one of the most solid and unique relationships in Hollywood today.
Since they began dating, there have been many times the couple couldn’t help but gush about their romance, which has made fans fall in love with them even more.
During a 2018 interview with Elle, Paulson shared just how special her and Taylor’s relationship really is.
“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 expressed. “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.”
Though their are a few people who have yet to embrace the couple’s relationship, many fans have shown a great deal of interest in their romance.
The Two and a Half Men and Legally Blonde actress even expressed how shocking it was to see fans tune into her love life. “I was blindsided by the reaction to it,” she told InStyle back in 2018.
“I’m from an older generation, and for me it’s quite surprising how people talk about personal things of any kind in the press,” Taylor continued. “It’s not natural to me. That doesn’t mean it’s not good, it’s just taken some adjusting. And Sarah, of course, is from a different generation, she’s very much of today. It was hard for me at first to go through that membrane of being a private person. But it’s been good for me to do it in such a lovely way.”
Paulson and Taylor can’t help but fall more in love with each other
While Paulson and Taylor keep the details of the romance out of the public eye, there have been times when the couple couldn’t help but rave about their love.
During a a 2016 interview with the New York Times, Paulson didn’t hold out when talking about her love life and confessed right then and there that Taylor was the one who held her heart.
“What I can say absolutely is that I am in love, and that person happens to be Holland Taylor,” she gushed.
Taylor shared a similar sentiment about Paulson in January 2017 while appearing on SiriusXM’s Sandyland with Sandra Bernhard.
“I’m the luckiest person in the world,” she expressed. “I can’t talk about my life today and not mention this wonderful love.”
Paulson and Taylor have proven to the world that nothing is stronger than their love for each other and we are certain their romance will last for many more years to come!
