Sarah Paulson on people's criticism of her relationship with Holland Taylor: "If that inspires anybody else, that can’t be a bad thing"
Paulson understands how people define their love as unconventional, but she also says she doesn't have to lead her life as per what is expected of her from a community.
Sarah Paulson has been doing some amazing work. The actress has impressed everyone with her acting skills and now, as she is also directing a few episodes on 'American Horror Story: Apocalypse'. We're sure that she is going to ace that too.
While she's going places in her career, her personal life too is being inadvertently pushed into the limelight. Paulson confirmed about dating actress Holland Taylor in 2016 and ever since people have been questioning her about dating a woman who is 32 years older than her.
Paulson understands how people define their love as "unconventional", but she also makes a point where she emphasizes doesn't have to lead her life as per what is expected of her from a community. "But I think why it's interesting to people is that on paper, it's unconventional. 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," Paulson opened up in her Elle's November 'Women in Hollywood' issue.
"If someone wants to spend any time thinking I'm strange for loving the most spectacular person on the planet, then that's their problem," she told the Modern Luxury magazine during an interview. "I'm doing just fine," added Paulson.
"If my life choices had to be predicted 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," she told The New York Times. "What I can say absolutely is that I am in love, and that person happens to be Holland Taylor" she added.
Paulson has been vocal about her relationship like she is about other issues. There is nothing that can take her down as she says, " I do not want to be defined by who I share my bed, my home, my soul with," she told Town and Country. "My choices in life have been unconventional, and that's my business."
There's the message loud and clear.
