In recent times actress Sarah Paulson has moved from strength to strength, but there was a time where she was warned her relationship would affect her "career negatively".
In an interview with The Edit, the 42-year-old American Horror Story star said she never worried about balancing her professional life and private relationship with 74-year-old actress girlfriend Holland Taylor until people told her to "be careful".
"Early on, when people found out I was with [Taylor], some said, 'I think you have to be careful, I'm afraid it's going to affect your career negatively,'" she said.
"I was like, what? It never occurred to me at all."
Despite the commencing their relationship in 2015, negative comments did impact on Paulson going public with it for some time.
It was only during her Emmy acceptance speeches last year for her portrayals in American Horror Story and The People v O.J Simpson that she spontaneously decided to say, "Holland Taylor, I love you."Advertisement
