Openly Gay Celebrities — See Who Is Out And Proud!:
Taylor's admission was revealed after an interviewer questioned her on marriage. The actress revealed:
"My relationship is with a woman, and I have not — given my generation it would not be something that would automatically occur to me. But she's mentioned it because just from a spiritual point of view, from a heart point of view, as a — as a — as a deed that has a very rich symbolic gesture to it, it has its attraction. But it's been a very casual conversation at this point. But it's not — it would be a very private thing. I would not do that publicly. But as a symbol, as a pledge, as a plighting one's troth I would see it — that it would be a wonderful thing to do."
Aw! We'd love to see H.T. married to her lady love!
But wait, who is this mystery woman?
The icon explained:
"There's a very big age difference between us. Which I'm sure shocks a lot of people, and it startles me. But you know, it's not a statement original to me — I've heard it as a joke once in my past, but as they say, 'If she dies, she dies.'…She thought it was funny when I said it too."
Wowza! Maybe the Sarah Paulson dating rumors are true!
Sounding off on her sexuality, the blonde divulged:
"I feel at this point in the conversation it feels kind of awkward.. Now I feel very very shy of it. I've been really wrestling with this lately because most of my relationships have been with women and I don't like talking about them because I don't like talking about the politics of it all because I'm not political about it. I think we're ridiculous in this country about it. Ridiculous. And so, it's awkward because if I talk about relationships in my life or people that have been in my life, or somebody I've been seeing for a while or this, that, and the other thing, I'd like to be able to just say that, without having to stop and say, ‘So have you come out?' No, I haven't come out because I am out. I live out."
Yay, live your life girl! We totally support you!
So, are YOU surprised by this admission?
