It is safe to badume that when Sarah Paulson 42 and Holland Taylor, 74, started dating in 2015 they knew the relationship would raise some eyebrows .
"The options of my life are, for example, unconventional," Paulson revealed in a new interview with The Edit. "I'm with a much older person and people find it totally fascinating and impartial, and, for me, it's the last interesting thing about me, but I feel a bit unconventional, I'm a woman of a certain age who chose not to have children and who I've made my career my priority, I'm the captain of my own ship, and I've never looked for anyone to validate that, or tell me it's okay. "
Some people warned the star American Horror Story that Taylor could stop him from getting a job. "From the beginning, when people discovered that they were with Holland, some said:" I think you should be careful, I'm afraid it's going to negatively affect your career, "he revealed. The warnings entered through one ear and out the other.
Paulson publicly declared his feelings for the Two and a Half Men student at the 2016 Emmy Awards when he won for The People v. OJ Simpson . "It occurred to me, should not [say ‘I love you’ to Taylor onstage]? And then I thought, why would not I?" Paulson explained. "The fact that I'm having this thought is wrong, but I had a moment of social concern, wondering if, maybe, people who did not know about me would be like, wait, what? But then, you know, I did it anyway ".
Taylor, meanwhile, once proclaimed herself "the luckiest person in the world" to be united with Paulson.
