American Horror Story star Sarah Paulson has discussed her relationship with Holland Taylor, saying the two share a soul.

News first emerged that 43-year-old Sarah was dating 74-year-old veteran star Holland in 2015.

‘I do want to live responsibly and truthfully without hiding’

The actress told Town & Country magazine: ‘I do not want to be defined by who I share my bed, my home, my soul with. My choices in life have been unconventional, and that’s my business. But I do want to live responsibly and truthfully without hiding.’

She furthermore added: ‘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. What else can I say? We love each other.’

On the subject of not having kids, Sarah added: ‘I don’t want to be torn… I don’t want to look at my child and say, “You’re the most extraordinary thing that ever happened to me, but also the death knell.”‘

She also added: ‘It was hard for my mother to be everywhere, to come to the school play and make a living. I’ve always known what I wanted out of my professional life, and I didn’t want to turn around and go, “If I had only made the choice to just dedicate this time in my life to me.” It’s selfish, but I think the word selfish gets a bad rap.’

Sarah has starred in an array of Hollywood TV shows and movies. Among them, the Oscar-nominated lesbian-themed Carol, and also the critical hits Martha Marcy May Marlene and Blue Jay.

Last month, she expressed an interest in the coveted role of Cheetah in Wonder Woman 2.
