"It is the most wonderful, extraordinary thing that could have ever happened in my life," Holland said during a recent interview with WNYC.org. The star declined not to reveal her partner's identity, but she did confirm she was a younger woman.
"Given my generation it would not be something that would automatically occur to me," Holland said of tying the knot. "But as a symbol, as a pledge, as a plighting one's troth, it would be a wonderful thing to do."
The actress went on to say she has never kept her sexual preference a secret, but noted: "I haven't come out because I am out, I live out."

Holland recently shared this photo of her rumoured girlfriend
In hindsight, Holland and Sarah have been photographed together on a number of occasion in the past year. They often send each other social media messages, and just a few weeks ago Holland shared a photo of Sarah in a full length gown, writing alongside: "When captions fail…"
Sarah was previously in a relationship with 24 actress Cherry Jones; they dated for five years before their split in 2009. Speaking to PrideSource last month, Sarah stressed she doesn't want to be attached to any label.
"All I can say is, I've done both and I don't let either experience define me," she said. "I don't let having been with a man make me think I am heterosexual, or make me want to call myself that, because I know I have been attracted to women – and have lived with women.
"So for me, I'm not looking to define myself, and I'm sorry if that is something that is seen as a rejection of or an unwillingness to embrace (my sexuality) in a public way, but it's simply not. It's simply what's true for me and that's all I can speak to."
