American Horror Story/American Crime Story actress Sarah Paulson should probably star next in a show called "American Love Story," since she is so head-over-heels in love with her girlfriend, Holland Taylor, who happens to be 32 years her senior (admit it, you would watch that show).

Paulson knows her relationship with Taylor is unconventional, and has some choice words for those inevitable haters who hate to see two people happy. The actress told People, "I believe that everyone should be allowed to speak their truth and just say what they want to say and show the world who they are. You should be able to love whomever you fucking well please."

Paulson, 41, and Taylor, 73, have reportedly been dating for over a year now, and the two seem to be absolutely smitten with each other. Taylor even gushed about her relationship on the WNYC radio show Death, Sex and Money, saying, "It's the most wonderful, extraordinary thing that could have ever possibly happened in my life."

Like any other couple in 2016, they also are super cutesy on social media.

Paulson also said all the attention on her relationship helped her connect to her American Crime Story character, Marcia Clark.

"I couldn't help but feel a kinship in terms of being looked at," she says. "But there was so much celebration about my relationship. So much so I thought: Jesus, did everyone just assume I was going to be alone forever with 500 cats?"

Paulson seems to kind of have a thing for older women. She dated actress Cherry Jones, 18 years her senior, back in 2005. The pair caused a stir when they shared an on camera kiss at the Tony Awards that year, but Paulson thought the attention was ridiculous.

"I was just doing what one would do when a person they love has just won a big award," she told toPeople. "What am I gonna do, pat her on the back and say, 'Good job, dude'? It didn't occur to me to do anything but what I did."

Look how far we've come, America! A kiss between two woman wouldn't even warrant batting an eyelash now.
