It looks like life imitates art for Taylor Schilling! Star can exclusively reveal that the Orange is the New Black star, who romances Laura Prepon’s character, Alex, on the hit Netflix show, is dating a woman off-screen, as well!
The actress’ lucky lady is Portlandia actress, Carrie Brownstein. “They met awhile back and there was an instant spark,” a friend says. “They’ve gotten super close and are totally smitten with each other.”
Carrie sings and plays guitar in the band Slater-Kinney, and Taylor has been a regular fixture in the audience at some of her recent shows. In fact, just last month, she tweeted, “Ferocious and firey @Sleater_Kinney amazing show last night.”
Last weekend, The Lucky One star visited Carrie in her hometown of Portland, where they were spotted out and about by fans. “They are still in the early stages of their relationship,” the insider explains. “But they couldn’t be happier and are already talking about a future together!”
Interestingly, Carrie previously dated musician St. Vincent, who’s recently made headlines for her hot new relationship with Cara Delevingne.
