Taylor Schilling Dating Ritz
There were merely rumors first but now Taylor Schilling and Ritz have confirmed it themselves that they are dating each other. Reports also tell that the two met through mutual friends and their relationship turned more romantic only late last year. Schilling has been a subject of scrutiny several times in the past due to her sexuality. However, she would always maintain her private life very private. She also told Evening Standard back in MAy 2017 that she had very serious relationships with a lot of people and she is a very expansive human.
“There’s no part of me that can be put under a label. I really don’t fit into a box – that’s too reductive. I’ve had wonderful relationships. I’ve had a lot of love, and I don’t have any qualms about where it comes from.”
Taylor Schilling showed her support for the Pride and Black Lives Matter movement by sharing a tribute by Marsha P. Johnson, who died back in 1992. She also admitted that her life was very tough in the early days just because she wanted to succeed. However, now that she has grown up, she is Justin growing and evolving, something she should have done before as well.
“I certainly feel like I am at a different place now than I was in my twenties. I was definitely ready for my twenties to be over. Looking back, my thoughts and my ideas about life might’ve been confining and I was so hard on myself. Things were so much tougher than they needed to be. The transition from being a teenager to being in your early twenties; to getting your sea legs with work and things like that weren’t necessarily easy, but you grow and you evolve.”
