Who is Taylor Schilling dating?

Taylor Schilling Carrie Brownstein

The Orange is the New Black star was most recently linked to Carrie Brownstein, who you either know from Sleater-Kinney or Portlandia.  The pair managed to keep their romance under the radar during the summer of 2015. The following year, Schilling told People she was single.

“If I was in a relationship I was happy with, I’d love to talk about it,” she told the magazine. “But I don’t like to date. It takes a lot for me to be into somebody. By default I’m a monogamist. I want a partner in crime.”

In February, Schilling told Gotham Magazine that she has a boyfriend who-must-not-be-named living in Gowanus in Brooklyn. For those of you not familiar, Gowanus is an industrial part of town that is both very hip and possibly a toxic wasteland.

“I’m not gonna talk about it, but someone special does live in Gowanus. It’s full of special people. It’s a special place.” OK!

About her sexuality, the 33-year-old says she can’t be labeled. “I’ve had very serious relationships with lots of people, and I’m a very expansive human,” she told the magazine. “I really don’t fit into a box – that’s too reductive. But I’ve had wonderful relationships… I’ve had a lot of love, and I don’t have any qualms about where it comes from.” Cool beans, fam.
