Sarah Paulson Says People Find Her Relationship With Holland Taylor 'Fascinating and Odd'

Sarah Paulson Says People Find Her Relationship With Holland Taylor 'Fascinating and Odd'
Sarah Paulson admits that her life is rather "unconventional," but that's not because she's dating Holland Taylor.

The 42-year-old actress is featured in Net-a-Porter’s digital magazine, The Edit, and talks about her longtime romance with the 74-year-old actress and their 32-year age difference.

"My life choices are, um, unconventional," she confides. "I’m with a much older person and people find that totally fascinating and odd, and, to me, it’s the least interesting thing about me."

Paulson adds, "But I do feel a bit unconventional."

The Emmy winner shares that when she first started dating Taylor, she was told that it could have a negative impact on her acting career. "Early on, when people found out I was with Holland, some said: 'I think you have to be careful, I’m afraid it’s going to affect your career negatively,'" she recalls. "I was like, 'What?' It never occurred to me at all."

Sandra Bullock Unites Her Thieves in New Look at Ocean's Eight
It's been almost a full year since Warner Bros. released the first Ocean's Eight photo, featuring Sandra Bullock as Debbie Ocean and her team of thieves riding a New York City subway. Today we have the second official photo with Sandra Bullock alongside her seven partners in crime, played by Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Rhianna, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter and Awkwafina. This all-female heist thriller is following in the footsteps of last year's Ghostbusters, whose all-female cast was often the subject of online vitriol. When asked if this cast has gone through the same type of thing on this movie, Sandra Bullock had this to say.

"They did put (the Ghostbusters cast) through hell. And I'm still trying to figure out why. Forget what the final product was! There were four or five of the most talented comediennes in that film. Everyone should've just taken a breath and said,

The 'Today' Show's 11 Biggest Scandals: Matt Lauer's Firing, Kanye West's Epic Call-Out and More
Though news of Matt Lauer's shocking firing from the Today show last Wednesday over "inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace" rocked the nation, it's not the first time the NBC morning show has caused plenty of controversy.

From Lauer's testy interviews with Tom Cruise and Kanye West, to cringe-worthy on-air gaffes, let's take a look back at the show's nine most memorable scandals.

2005: Tom Cruise gets into heated debate with Lauer over antidepressants.

Tom Cruise appeared on the Today show in June of 2005 to promote War of the Worlds, but the interview quickly went south when the topic changed to Cruise's Scientologist beliefs. Lauer questioned Cruise about slamming Brooke Shields for promoting medication to deal with postpartum depression, prompting the actor to infamously call the Today show co-anchor "glib."

“The thing that I’m saying about Brooke is that there’s misinformation, Ok?" Cruise said. "And she doesn’t understand the history of psychiatry. She doesn’t

The Year of the Woman: 5 Ways Female Filmmakers, Actresses, and Advocates Forever Changed Hollywood in 2017

The Year of the Woman: 5 Ways Female Filmmakers, Actresses, and Advocates Forever Changed Hollywood in 2017
Girl Talk is a weekly look at women in film — past, present, and future. This week, we look back on a monumental year, for better or worse.

Ask enough women in Hollywood about being a woman in Hollywood, and eventually a theme emerges: conversation is great, and the acknowledgement of the skewed numbers and lack of equality is essential. It’s a discussion that needs to happen, but won’t it be great when we can stop just talking and put words into action?

It’s a two-pronged dream — that conversation will move past chatter and produce real results, and that those results will create a world where inequality becomes a thing of the past.

But talking has a way of being one-sided and, as it turns out, there needed to be one more step in between the chatter and actually moving things forward. That finally happened in 2017, the year people stopped talking,

James Franco finally finds his place in Hollywood with The Disaster Artist

The multi-hyphenated star has had his share of missteps, but his performance in the self-directed Hollywood-based comedy might be his defining moment

In the Academy Awards’ long and varied history of bad calls and faux pas, perhaps none – not even this year’s mortifying best picture switch – induces quite the same cold sweat of retroactive embarrassment as the memory of James Franco’s misbegotten hosting attempt. It’s been nearly seven years since Franco, together with Anne Hathaway, was recruited to emcee Hollywood’s biggest night of the year in an ill-conceived grab for the youth audience. In case you need reminding, he proceeded to die on stage like a flailing standup somehow forced to repeat his failed set over four agonising hours: sluggishly delivering second-rate quips, he appeared alternately stoned and stunned, as detached from his audience as he was from the frantically perky Hathaway.

Matt Lauer Fired: A Look Back at His Past Scandals
Today show fans were stunned on Wednesday morning, when co-anchor Savannah Guthrie announced that Matt Lauer had been fired from the long-running morning show for "inappropriate sexual behavior."

NBC News chairman Andy Lack also revealed in a letter to staff that Lauer had been accused by a female colleague of “inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace," and after a "serious review," called Lauer's alleged actions a "clear violation of our company's standards." Lauer was then immediately fired.

"While it is the first complaint about his behavior in the over 20 years he’s been at NBC News, we were also presented with a reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident," Lack wrote. "Our highest priority is to create a workplace environment where everyone feels safe and protected and to ensure that any actions that run counter to our core values are met with consequences no matter who the offender.

Ventana Sur: Versus Entertainment Acquires Alpha Violet’s ‘Hunting Season’(Exclusive)

Ventana Sur: Versus Entertainment Acquires Alpha Violet’s ‘Hunting Season’(Exclusive)
Buenos Aires — In one of the first deals to go down on a buzzed-up movie at Ventana Sur, Natalia Garagiola’s “Temporada de caza” (Hunting Season), Adrián Guerra’s Versus Entertainment has acquired the father-son drama for Spain and Portugal.

In a second deal on “Hunting Season’s” sales agent Alpha Violet’s slate, France’s Bodega Films will release Mapuche teen drama “Mala Junta.”

Argentine Garagiola’s debut feature, “Hunting Season” drew attention for proving a pioneering investment outside by the U.S. by New York-based Gamechanger Films, which exclusively finances feature films directed by women. Gamechanger boarded a project lead-produced by high-flying Buenos Aires-based Argentina’s Rei Cine, and co-produced by Germany’s Augenschein Filmproduktion and France’s Les Films de l’Etranger, a prestigious combination.

But “Hunting Season” really leapt onto the radar this September winning Venice’s Critics’ Week Audience Award. Since then it has hit the festival circuit, most notably

Meghan Markle, Anne Hathaway and More of Our Favorite American Princesses in Pop Culture

Meghan Markle, Anne Hathaway and More of Our Favorite American Princesses in Pop Culture
There's going to be a new princess in town! Earlier today, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced their royal engagement after a little over a year of dating. The 36-year-old is a biracial American actress from Los Angeles—so needless to say, Markle is certainly breaking the British mold of what we think a typical princess is. The big news got us pondering about a few of our favorite American pop princesses (no, not Britney Spears or Taylor Swift) from film and television; actresses who gave many of us the fleeting fantasy that maybe one day, we too would wear a tiara on our heads and go to glittering balls decked out in dazzling gowns... Of course, we loved Anne Hathaway's film debut as ugly...

The BBC Is Working On A Les Miserables TV Series

One of the biggest musicals of the decade is 2012’s Les Miserables, an adaptation of the hugely successful stage production featuring an all-star cast including Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, Eddie Redmayne, Amanda Seyfried, Helena Bonham-Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen and many more. It was an awards magnet, too, achieving a whopping eight nominations at the Oscars that year and earning Hathaway a Best Supporting Actress gong.

You’d think that no one would attempt to top this surely definitive version of the story so soon then, but actually, you’d be wrong. According to industry insider The Knowledge, the BBC is working on a new TV series based on the original 19th century novel written by Victor Hugo. Screenwriter Andrew Davies – whose past credits include House of Cards and Bridget Jones’ Diary (so he’s clearly versatile) – is set to adapt the book, and the hunt for a cast has now begun.

Jesmyn Ward Makes History and Wins Second National Book Award for “Sing, Unburied, Sing”

Ward on “Late Night with Seth Meyers

This year’s National Book Awards were dominated by women. Female writers took home prizes in three major categories: fiction, nonfiction, and young people’s literature. An event celebrating the winners was held last night in New York City, The New York Times reports.

Novelist Jesmyn Ward won the National Book Award for Fiction for “Sing, Unburied, Sing.” Set in contemporary Mississippi, the family epic “grapples with race, poverty, and the psychic scars of past violence,” the source summarizes. The story centers on a 13-year-old boy on a road trip with his sister and drug-addicted mother. Described by judges as “a narrative so beautifully taut and heartbreakingly eloquent that it stops the breath,” the book has earned comparisons to Toni Morrison and William Faulkner’s works. Ward previously took home the National Book Award for Fiction for “Salvage the Bones” in 2011. She’s
