Holland Taylor, the cool law professor lady in Legally Blonde, recently made headlines when she nonchalantly revealed that she's in a deeply committed relationship with a woman on an episode of WNYC's Death, Sex, and Money podcast (opens in new tab). She declined to name her partner, but according to People's sources (opens in new tab), the previously unidentified younger woman is none other than actress Sarah Paulson.

"Given my generation it would not be something that would automatically occur to me," Taylor said of marriage on the podcast. "But as a symbol, as a pledge, as a plighting one's troth, it would be a wonderful thing to do."

Disappointingly, the news has been met with both ageist and homophobic responses, but that shouldn't bother Taylor, who also said, "I haven't come out because I am out. I live out."
