Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor’s relationship began where all great modern romances do: on Twitter.

American Horror Story stars Sarah Paulson and Billy Eichner joined host Andy Cohen on Wednesday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and, naturally, the Glass actress’s long-term relationship with fellow actress Holland Taylor was broached.

Asked how they met, Paulson revealed that she “was with someone else” when they were first introduced and it wasn’t until years later that they began dating. "We were doing a thing at Martha Plimpton’s house.

Eichner clarified, "Holland Taylor slid into your DMs?” and without an ounce of irony, Paulson responded, “She actually did.”
