"What I can say absolutely is that I am in love, and that person happens to be Holland Taylor."The two actresses met at a dinner party about 10 years ago, but Paulson had been dating actress Cherry Jones—who is 18 years older than she— at the time.
As a result, the actress not only has to master a steady stream of rituals as if they're second nature; she has to alter her own essential transparency.
In similar no-nonsense fashion, she exposes her characters' desires and shortcomings with neither elaborate techniques to distance herself from them nor self-congratulation.
The open-faced actor currently has her work cut out for her playing the emotionally shut-off Agnes.
Reports that Paulson, 41, was dating Holland Taylor, 73, began to surface in early December after Taylor admitted that she was in a relationship with a woman and that it was the "most wonderful and extraordinary thing" that happened to her life.
People began to notice her and Paulson's witty Twitter banter, but nothing was officially confirmed—until now."If my life choices had to be predicated 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," Paulson told the newspaper.
