“Holland Taylor slid into your DMs?”
Actress Sarah Paulson, 44, revealed on Wednesday how she was courted by 76-year-old girlfriend.
The award-winning TV star said during an appearance on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen” that fellow actress Holland Taylor had approached her on Twitter.
“Holland Taylor slid into your DMs?” asked Billy Eichner, Paulson’s costar on FX’s “American Horror Story.”
“She actually did!” Paulson replied.
The unusual couple has been together since 2015. Paulson has in the past responded to critics of their 32-year age gap.

Last January, she told Modern Luxury: “If anyone wants to spend any time thinking I’m strange for loving the most spectacular person on the planet, then that’s their problem. I’m doing just fine.”
Paulson in May told Town and Country there was “something brave” about their relationship.
“Maybe it encourages others to make brave choices,” she added. “What else can I say? We love each other?”
Defying social restrictions can indeed be brave. Liberals ― like Paulson, who has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump ― are eager to champion those who seek to break free of unjust chains to be their “true selves.” However, conservatives tend to to defer more to the existing order.
As Jonathan Haidt has written, even when there is no clear harm in action, they will deem certain actions to be immoral simply by virtue of being gross.
