Two & a Half Men's Holland Taylor Reveals She's Dating a Woman: 'I Haven't Come Out Because I Am Out!'
Two and a Half Men actress Holland Taylor has revealed she is in a relationship with a woman and has dated mostly women her entire life.
The 72-year-old actress gave an interview with WNYC where she was asked about if she had ever wanted to get married.
“My relationship is with a woman, and I have not — given my generation it would not be something that would automatically occur to me. But she’s mentioned it because just from a spiritual point of view, from a heart point of view, as a — as a — as a deed that has a very rich symbolic gesture to it, it has its attraction. But it’s been a very casual conversation at this point. But it’s not — it would be a very private thing. I would not do that publicly. But as a symbol, as a pledge, as a plighting one’s troth I would see it — that it would be a wonderful thing to do,” Holland said.
“I feel at this point in the conversation it feels kind of awkward. Now I feel very very shy of it. I’ve been really wrestling with this lately because most of my relationships have been with women and I don’t like talking about them because I don’t like talking about the politics of it all because I’m not political about it. I think we’re ridiculous in this country about it. Ridiculous. And so, it’s awkward because if I talk about relationships in my life or people that have been in my life, or somebody I’ve been seeing for a while or this, that, and the other thing, I’d like to be able to just say that, without having to stop and say, ‘So have you come out?’ No, I haven’t come out because I am out. I live out,” Holland continued. “There’s a very big age difference between us. Which I’m sure shocks a lot of people, and it startles me. But you know, it’s not a statement original to me — I’ve heard it as a joke once in my past, but as they say, ‘If she dies, she dies.’ . . . She thought it was funny when I said it too.”
