Laura Prepon Doesn't Think Alex & Piper Will Ever Settle Down

Laura Prepon, Natasha Lyonne, Taylor Schilling, and Danielle Brooks attend the TimesTalk for Orange is the New Black on Friday (June 24) at the Times Center in New York City.

The ladies were joined by their co-stars Kate Mulgrew, Samira Wiley, and Uzo Aduba.

During the event, Laura answered a question about her character Alex and Taylor‘s character Piper possibly ending up together.

“There will never be any settling down for Alex and Piper, which is why it’s such a fun relationship to watch,” Laura said (via EW). “It’s just one of those things where you really can’t control where your heart goes. They love each other and they hate each other, and they manipulate each other and they help each other when they need it, but the thing that’s so great is that it’s always grounded in the reality that they do ultimately love each other. You’re always kind of rooting for them because of that genuine love.”

“I never thought that I’d be on a runway wearing Lane Bryant with Christian Siriano‘s name on the back of the label. It’s pretty surreal in a lot of ways,” Danielle told Cosmopolitan. “It was such a rush. I am so glad I had so many women backstage to help me to know when to, like, make sure that I’m walking in the middle and not too far to the right. They were so helpful.”
