Sarah Paulson dismisses people's concerns about the 32-year age gap with girlfriend Holland Taylor
Actresses Sarah Paulson, 43 and girlfriend Holland Taylor, 75 confirmed their relationship in 2015 and that had created an instant storm. Even though people were not so happy about the age gap, Sarah does not seem to find that to be a problem. The actress is going to grace the cover of six of Modern Luxury‘s June issues in which she opened up about her relationship with Holland.
Sarah confessed that when she met Holland for the first time she thought she was "probably the most exquisitely beautiful woman I’d ever seen.” The couple happened to meet each other once again a couple of months after that and soon they started following each other on Twitter. Through messages, their love story started blooming and the pair decided to go on a date. Ever since then they have been inseparable.
Speaking to Modern Luxury, Sarah explained how the comments on her relationship do not seem to bother her. “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,” she said as per People. “I’m doing just fine.”
During the interview, Sarah also spoke about taking on roles which require her to transform physically and emotionally. “The more I can look in the mirror and not recognize myself, the more excited I am,” she said. "We’re constantly faced with all these ideas of beauty — things that Hollywood puts out there for us to gobble up."
"It’s very powerful when I look in the mirror and the first thing I’m thinking isn’t, ‘Are you pretty? Are you going to appeal to someone?’ I can work much more freely when I don’t have to concern myself with my looks," she continued. The actress added that even if she ages, she will not let it affect her career. “If being older means all the roles I’m getting to play now because of all the ups and downs and hills and valleys proceeding it, I say bring it on,” she said.
“Every once in a while I’ll go, ‘Wow. [43.] That’s seven years shy of 50.’ That’s the big 5-0. But then I go, ‘Stop running seven years down the road. You have no idea what your life will look like and where you’ll be.’ And that’s just what makes life so sweet. You cross your fingers, take a deep breath and jump. And that’s really all you can do.”
