Sarah Paulson loves talking about love
Sarah Paulson wants to "shout from the rooftops" about her love for her partner Holland Taylor.
The 41-year-old actress won her first Primetime Emmy Award on Sunday (18.09.16) for her portrayal of Marcia Clark in 'The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story' and used her acceptance speech to express her love for her 73-year-old partner, who was unable to attend the ceremony because she was in New York rehearsing for her Broadway play 'The Front Page'.
At the end of her acceptance speech, Sarah simply said: "Holland Taylor, I love you."
And the 'American Horror Story' star said the declaration of love wasn't something she wanted to hide, admitting she wanted to "shout from the rooftops" about how much she loves her long term girlfriend.
Speaking afterwards to US TV show 'Extra', the blonde beauty said: "To me it seems like an odd thing, like I'm supposed to not thank the person that I love more than anyone in the world because somehow it would be shameful? I just don't subscribe to that sort of belief.
"I want to shout from the rooftops all the time about how much I love that person, so if I can do it in front of millions of people then why not?"
The feeling is most certainly mutual, as the former 'Two and a Half Men' actress took to Twitter to share her thoughts throughout the evening as she watched the ceremony from New York.
She tweeted: "Having a heart attack...
"If I'm watching...?? If I'm WATCHING??? YES, I'm watching--!!! good LORD! ... I LOVE you!!!
"Yes!!! YES!!! YES!!! YES!!! YES!!! YES!!! 'Maria, Marcia, Marcia'
"There it is.
"Still in New York. Still swooning. @MsSarahPaulson (sic)"
Rather than attend the Emmys alone, Sarah brought along the real-life Marcia Clark as her date.
