Self-isolation hasn’t slowed this couple down. Actress Holland Taylor revealed how she and her partner, Sarah Paulson, have been spending their quarantine — and it seems they’ve been switching up their surroundings often.
“Sarah has a house about five minutes from me. So we spend the long weekend up at her house, and I’m by myself here for two days, and we spend one day together here,” the 77-year-old told Vulture in an interview published on August 13. “So we go back and forth. That’s actually good to be moving around, to have change, because it’s like — life is really, really strange.”
Though the longtime loves have been making Los Angeles their playground amid the coronavirus pandemic, the actresses are clearly thinking about what social distancing means for their profession. “Of course, I won’t be able to work until this is over,” Holland added. “Except for very unusual circumstances. I don’t know what it will be like when actors can really be in a big film production, 150 people.”
Thankfully, the time off work has given the dynamic duo more time to spend with one another. “I mean, we’re mostly together, and we both have a little time where you just don’t have anybody to answer to, without any sort of accommodating someone else’s plans,” the Legally Blonde star noted. “So it’s good for me because I’m older, and I’ve been so independent all my life, so it works out well.”
The actresses — who started dating in 2015 despite their 32-year age difference — are “very different,” according to Holland, but that’s part of what makes the relationship thrive. “The fact that I am older makes me steadier,” Holland told Closer Weekly in June. “I don’t worry about some of the things that she may worry about. I might be a steadying influence. She’s very excitable. I think I’m the person she can quiet down with. I’m hopefully that sense of home.”
After Holland and Sarah, 45, started dating, they waited an entire year before making their red carpet debut at the Critics’ Choice Awards in January 2016. However, they decided not to address their romance until Sarah opened up during a March 2016 interview with The New York Times.
Clearly, these two lovebirds value holding their private life — and each other — close.
