Playing 'Two and a Half Men' Star Holland Taylor Says She’s in a Relationship With a Woman: 'I Haven't Come Out Because I Live Out'

Holland Taylor lives out!

The Two and a Half Men star opened up to WNYC on Monday about her sexuality for the first time, where she admitted that talking about being in a relationship with a woman at 72 can be hard.

"I feel very very shy of it," she said. "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’d like to be able to just say that, without having to stop and say, ‘So have you come out?’” the actress added. "No, I haven’t come out because I am out. I live out.”

While she didn't confirm the identity of her current partner, Taylor did reveal that it can be challenging dating someone younger.

"There’s a very big age difference between us which I’m sure shocks a lot of people, and it startles me,” she said, joking, “but as they say, ‘If she dies, she dies.”

It has been rumored that Taylor is dating 40-year-old American Horror Story star Sarah Paulson. In November, Taylor posted a photo of Paulson wearing a shimmering floor-length gown on Twitter, writing, “When captions fail…”

At this point in her life, Taylor won't rule out a wedding, noting that "it would be a very private thing."

"I would not do that publicly," she said of the possibility of getting 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 deed that has a very rich symbolic gesture to it, it has its attraction."

Another celebrity who has discussed "coming out" is Ellen DeGeneres, during Oprah's Master Class in October.

"It became bigger than I ever thought it would be. Bigger than I wanted it to be," DeGeneres admitted at the time. "It overshadowed my talent, it overshadowed who I am as a person."
