In May, Paulson defended the 32 year age year gap between her and her Two and a Half Men actor girlfriend Taylor.

“If someone wants to spend any time thinking I’m strange for loving the most spectacular person on the planet, then that’s their problem.” Paulson told Town and Country in an interview, reported People.

“I do not want to be defined by who I share my bed, my home, my soul with. We love each other.”

Paulson opened up about her love for Holland in an interview with The New York Times in 2016.

“What I can say absolutely is that I am in love, and that person happens to be Holland Taylor,” she told the publication.

Acknowledging the age difference, the actor said: “There’s a poignancy to being with someone older.”
