Everything Sarah Paulson & Girlfriend Holland Taylor Have Said About Each Other
"People look at me and Holland and say, 'Mommy issues,' but I parent her as much as she parents me, so that’s not it."
— Paulson, on the public's perception of the couple, to The Sunday Times
"I think a lot of people have a stunted way of looking at older people, it’s a way of distancing themselves from something that they think will not happen to them. I have the good fortune of being with someone who is older and wiser than I am."
—Paulson, on people's perceptions of their relationship, to The Sunday Times
"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."
— Paulson, clapping back at critics of her relationship with Taylor, to Modern Luxury
"I do want to live responsibly and truthfully without hiding. It's complicated, because there is a lot of hate in this world, and a lot of good can come from quote-unquote normalizing something for people who don't see it as normal. Our relationship represents a certain amount of hope and risk. Maybe there's something brave in it. Maybe it encourages others to make brave choices."
— Paulson, on what keeping her relationship public can do for others, to Town & Country

"I must say, it has to be part of what has to be the most wonderful thing in my life, is the whole embrace of this wonderful relationship which makes everything else makes sense. I'm the luckiest person in the world. I can't talk about my life today and not mention this wonderful love."
