Now, she found love in another beloved actress.
“If my life choices had to be predicated based on what was expected of me from a community on either side, that’s going to make me feel really straitjacketed, and I don’t want to feel that,” Sarah Paulson said. “What I can say absolutely is that I am in love, and that person happens to be Holland Taylor.”
