Sarah Paulson Dating a 73-Year-Old Actress Is the Weirdest and Coolest Thing Ever

Giving Hugh Hefner a run for his money.

American Horror Story Queen (with a capital Q) Sarah Paulson is dating a woman who could be her mom. And if we’re going Teen Mom style, her grandma.

The typically low-key actress confirmed that she is madly in love with Legally Blonde star Holland Taylor, who is 32 years her senior. And you thought Rob and Blac’s reality show was the most interesting thing you’d hear about all day.

In an interview with the NY Times, Sarah confirmed she is romantically involved with Holland after witty Twitter back-and-forth and dating rumors had people guessing since December. “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,” she said. “What I can say absolutely is that I am in love, and that person happens to be Holland Taylor.”

It’s no lie, Ms. Paulson likes herself an older woman. She elaborates: “There’s a poignancy to being with someone older. I think there’s a greater appreciation of time and what you have together and what’s important, and it can make the little things seem very small.” If you didn’t know, she was also once linked to Cherry Jones, who is 18 years older than she is.

And just wait for this poetic statement only Shakespeare could spew; she also told the paper Holland was “probably the most exquisitely beautiful woman [she]’d ever seen.” Can’t even.

Meanwhile, this all happened right under our noses, without us even fully realizing. Here they were back in October.

Props to Wes Bentley for trying to get in on that action.

If there’s anyone who can pull this off, it’s the perf, not-giving-a-f–k Sarah. Congrats, you crazy kids.

Pizza is bae. And yes, I still say bae.
