Sarah Paulson created a stir in the media after revealing her relationship with 75-year-old Holland Taylor in 2015. The couple is still going strong without being bogged down by others' reactions.
In an interview given to the magazine Modern Luxury on May 21, the Ocean's 8 star Paulson called Taylor the most spectacular person on the planet.
43-year-old Paulson and Taylor first met a decade ago at a dinner party. Although Paulson was dating someone else at that time, she thought that Taylor was the most exquisitely beautiful woman she had ever seen.
They met a few years later and exchanged numbers, started sharing messages, went out for dinners, and began their courtship. Paulson said that she was not bothered about what the critics had to say about their relationship.
“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.”
