Sarah Paulson really doesn’t give a fig about what you think of her relationship with 75-year-old Holland Taylor.

The 46-year-old ‘Oceans 8′ actress has been dating the ‘Two and a Half Men’ star since 2015, and despite the 32 year age gap in their relationship, they’re still very much in love.

Speaking to Modern Luxury, Paulson said that it doesn’t bother her what people think, and rather romantically commented:  “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. “I’m doing just fine.”

But she’s not always been comfortable discussing her love life in public. She knows why people talk about her.

“On one hand, when you’re in a relationship that makes you happy, you would be telling anyone who wanted to know about it. On the other, there’s a sort of… meal of it for people,” she said. “That’s not my favourite thing. But I don’t want to spend my life jumping from shadow to shadow.”

Paulson revealed how the happy couple met at a dinner party over a decade ago. She says she remembers thinking that Taylor was “probably the most exquisitely beautiful woman I’d ever seen.”

Paulson was in a relationship with actress Cherry Jones at the time so nothing happened, but she bumped into Taylor a few years later and they started following each other on Twitter. They soon started to message each other and they’ve been inseparable ever since.

When talking about her sexuality with Broadway.com back in 2013, Paulson said the situation had always been ‘fluid for me’ and that she had dated men in the past.

Paulson will be 50 in seven years time but she says age doesn’t really scare her. She just wants to live in the moment and not worry too much about what the future holds.

Talking to Modern Luxury, she said:  “And that’s just what makes life so sweet,” she said. “You cross your fingers, take a deep breath and jump. And that’s really all you can do.”

Other stars in relationships with large age gaps also include film-director Sam Taylor Johnson with actor Aaron Johnson, and Tom Ford with his long-standing partner Richard Buckley.

True love always conquers all, eventually.
