Our first introduction to the lovely Sarah Paulson happened by chance when the equally lovely actress Cherry Jones, upon hearing that she had won a Tony award for Best Actress in a Play, kissed Paulson before making her way to the stage to accept the award.

Once there, Cherry Jones thanked Paulson personally, saying, “Laura Wingfield, I share this with you,” referring to Paulson by the name of the character she was playing on Broadway at the time in The Glass Menagerie.

The next day, Playbill confirmed the relationship between Jones and Paulson.

“Cherry Jones, when taking her Best Actress (Play) award for Doubt referenced her ‘Laura Wingfield’ from the stage. Her partner is Sarah Paulson, of Broadway’s The Glass Menagerie.”


Since then, Sarah Paulson has become increasingly popular among lesbian audiences and audiences in general for her recurring guest role on the HBO hit Deadwood and film roles such as Joss Whedon’s Serenity (2005).


Age: 31. Born in Tampa, Florida in 1975

Most memorable performance: best friend to Renee Zellweger’s character in the 1950s Doris Day era comedy, Down With Love, co-starring Ewan McGregor and David Hyde Pierce.
