Two and a Half Men Actress Holland Taylor Opens Up About Being Gay

Why hadn't she come out until now?

Malcolm Venable

Holland Taylor, well known for her many roles including bisexual grandmother Evelyn Harper on Two and a Half Men, recently revealed that she's in a long-term relationship with a younger woman, People reports.

The 72-year-old said on WYNC's Death, Sex & Money podcast that she's in her first deeply committed relationship ever, and that she's not interested in making a big political statement about being gay.

"I haven't come out because I am out," she said. "I live out." Holland wouldn't reveal the name of her partner, but did say her main squeeze is much younger, and marriage isn't off the table.

"Given my generation [marriage] would not be something that would automatically occur to me," Taylor said. "But as a symbol, as a pledge, as a plighting one's troth, it would be a wonderful thing to do."

Hey, if it makes you happy Holland we say go forth and plight that troth! (Whatever that means.)
