Before Holland Taylor, Sarah Paulson Was Engaged to Tracy Letts
It's hard to imagine a time when Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor weren't together. The happy couple have been an item for five years, and while yes, they're freaking adorable together, this isn't Sarah's first or second long-term relationship. In fact, the American Horror Story actress was once engaged (hello, Tracy Letts). Though she has been with Holland for half a decade now, Sarah has a couple of famous exes from before. Here are the actors and actresses who've had the fortune of getting to know Sarah on a more personal level over the course of her career.
Actor and playwright Tracy Letts announced his engagement to Sarah in the late '90s, but the couple called it quits shortly after. In an interview, she explains, "I was young — 24. We loved each other, it just didn't work out." Tracy, who is nine years older than Sarah, is now married to The Leftovers' Carrie Coon, with whom he has three children.
Sarah and Cherry Jones confirmed their relationship in 2005, when they celebrated Cherry's Tony Award win with a televised kiss. It goes without saying, they were in love. But, Sarah had just landed her first big TV part and looking back, admits she was nervous the kiss would backfire on her career.
Rumors began to surface that the duo had split when Cherry didn't thank Sarah in her 2009 Emmys speech. Shortly thereafter, Cherry told US Magazine that after seven years together, they had broken up: "It's the happiest break up that's ever been. We grew so much together and now we can send each other off with a kiss and great love."
Sarah and Holland Taylor became an item back in 2015, and have been going strong ever since! The American Horror Story actress dished she's been smitten about Holland since they first met at a dinner party nearly a decade prior, although at the time, Sarah was still with long-term girlfriend Cherry.
Despite a 32-year age gap, the women can't seem to get enough of each other and continue to profess their love for one another in the cutest of ways.
