Taylor Schilling has more in common with her ‘Orange is the New Black’ character than you may have thought! Don’t worry, the actress isn’t headed to prison, but she does have a reported new love interest — and it’s a lady! Taylor is rumored to be dating Carrie Brownstein…and it may have been going on for several months now.
“She loves everything about Carrie,” the mag reports. “It’s rare to find someone special in this business. They’re doing everything they can to keep the spark alive!” But even though this news just seems to be going public now, it seems things have actually been heating up between Taylor and Carrie for months.
The duo were first spotted together in March, when Taylor was visiting her lady in Portland, Oregon. “They text, call and visit whenever they can,” an insider tells OK! The Orange is the New Black star has also been spotted at Carrie’s concerts (she’s in the band Sleater-Kinney), even traveling to Europe to support her gal on tour.
Somehow, though, these ladies have managed to lay pretty under the radar. Even though they sat next to each other (and were super smiley!) at the 10th Annual Global Women’s Rights Awards in West Hollywood on May 18, there have been very few speculations about a romance.
While Taylor has never discussed her sexual orientation, Carrie came out as bisexual when she was just 21 years old. Interestingly, the actress/musician previously dated St. Vincent, who’s been making headlines this year for her relationship with Cara Delevingne. Right now, Carrie and Taylor are filming their respective shows on opposite coasts, but it looks like they haven’t had too much trouble making it work!
