Sarah Paulson Was Told Her Career Would Be Negatively Affected By Holland Taylor Relationship

Sarah Paulson is on the cover of Net-a-Porter’s The Edit!

Here’s what the 42-year-old award winning actress had to share with the mag:

On her relationship with Holland Taylor, 74: “Early on, when people found out I was with Holland, some said: ‘I think you have to be careful, I’m afraid it’s going to affect your career negatively’. I was like, what? It never occurred to me at all.”

On thinking twice if she should say “I love you” to Holland during awards speeches: “It occurred to me, should I not do that? And then I thought, why would I not? The fact I’m having this thought is wrong. But I had a moment of societal concern; wondering if, maybe, people who didn’t know that about me would be like, wait, what? But then, you know, I did it anyway.”

On her unconventional life: “My life choices are, um, unconventional. I’m with a much older person and people find that totally fascinating and odd, and, to me, it’s the least interesting thing about me. But I do feel a bit unconventional. I am a woman of a certain age who chose not to have children, and who has made my career my priority. I am the captain of my own ship, and I’ve never looked to anyone else to validate that, or tell me it’s okay.”
