Sarah Paulson Kisses a Woman on the Red Carpet — It Isn’t Holland Taylor!
But it wasn’t girlfriend Holland Taylor she kissed on the red carpet…
No, instead the 42-year-old — dressed in a metallic Marc Jacobs gown — gave a peck to friend and frequent co-star Amanda Peet — who wore a more reserved Bottega Veneta number.
This liplock was a lot more graceful than the off-kilter smooch these two actresses shared a month ago at the opening night of New York City play The Babylon Line.
If you think these two look like old friends, you’d be right. They first co-starred in the 1999 dramedy Jack & Jill, a TV show that aired on the now-defunct WB Network.
Then they shared the screen in the indie film Griffin & Phoenix in 2006. And then they were back on TV together that same year in NBC’s short-lived drama Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.
Pedro revealed in August he stole the part of Oberyn Martell from his acting mentee and sent his audition tape to Sarah, his good friend; Sarah forwarded it to Amanda, who happens to be married to Thrones co-showrunner David Benioff.
All the aforementioned actors have found success in their own right, but Sarah has really hit her stride this year, picking up her first Emmy and her first Golden Globe within the span of four months.
“I feel like it’s somehow sacrilegious just to talk about wanting to win and for me, as an actor, I’ve dreamt about doing this since I was a tiny child,” Sarah told Good Morning America backstage.
“So these moments, these things I used to watch on TV, the idea that I could be there and this could happen to me is like a true ‘pinch me’ moment.”
Of course, Holland Taylor isn’t at all surprised her lady love is earning such accolades.
“Again,” she tweeted during Sarah’s big moment last night. “How not?”
