Philadelphia born and bred actress Holland Taylor tells WNYC's Sex, Death & Money podcast that she is in a relationship with a woman.
It's her first committed relationship. The Two and a Half Men star said that this is not her coming out, though. "I haven't come out because I am out. I live out."
After Taylor's 2013's Tony nominated turn in one-woman Broadway show, Ann about former Texas Gov. Ann Richards, Taylor fell into a deep depression. While reflecting on her life, noticed that she had lived a solitary life with no real deep personal relationships. At 72, she's in the first committed relationship she's ever been. "It's the most wonderful extraordinary thing that could have ever possibly happened in my life," she said. Taylor was hesitant to talk about her partner, revealing that she is younger and that they have discussed the possibility of marriage. "Given my generation it would not be something that would automatically occur to me," Holland said. "But as a symbol, as a pledge, as a plighting one's troth, it would be a wonderful thing to do."
Holland's official bio says she's "happy to be a Philadelphia native." She went to West Chester's Westtown Friends School before leaving the area to major in theater at Bennington, and eventually move to New York. In addition to a long stage career, Taylor won an Emmy for best supporting actress for her role on The Practice, and plays the mother of Upper Darby's own Tina Fey in the Philadelphia-shot Baby Mama, among many other roles.
