The former Two and a Half Men star dropped by the podcast Death, Sex & Money on WNYC on Monday to talk about the contrast between her headstrong, self-assured female roles and the real status of her emotions toward life and relationships.

She candidly shared her struggles with depression after ending her Broadway run playing Texas Governor Ann Richards, as well as the death of her mother several years ago.
Among the many personal experiences she intimated on the show, Holland Taylor revealed that going through the loss of her mother opened her up to a deeper and more committed kind of relationship, which she hadn’t given much thought prior to that turning point in her life. She then admitted that she is currently in a serious relationship at the moment and that she is “lucky to have the opportunity” to experience that at her age of 72.
“There is no question in my mind that it’s the most wonderful extraordinary thing that could have ever possibly happened in my life,” gushed Holland Taylor.
After being asked about her opinion on marriage, Holland Taylor further revealed that her current relationship is with a woman and that the age gap between them is quite significant.
“There's a very big age difference between us which I'm sure shocks a lot of people, and it startles me,” she confessed to host Anna Sale.
Although she did not mention the name of her girlfriend, a few sources close to Holland Taylor have claimed that the mystery woman is American Horror Story actress Sarah Paulson.
The affection between the two lovebirds is quite apparent, judging by their flirty and sweet back-and-forth messages on social media.
