Taylor Schilling “Not A Fan” Of Orange Is The New Black Co-Star Laverne Cox?

“Not everyone is reveling in the success of ‘Orange Is The New Black’ breakout star, Laverne Cox,” begins a piece from Life & Style, which claims co-star Taylor Schilling “isn’t a fan of the transgender actress.”
A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “Taylor thinks Laverne has let the success go to her head.”
“She’s over Laverne hijacking every interview and panel discussion they do,” continues the outlet’s supposed snitch, who goes on to allege the issue nearly came to a head during a Directors Guild appearance earlier this month.
The Life & Style “source” claims, “Taylor would be asked a question, and Laverne would interrupt or interject something. Taylor didn’t even hide her annoyance — she’d roll her eyes and give a little smile as if to say, ‘I’m used to it. I’ll wait until she’s done yapping.'”
Meanwhile, Cox is “riding this as long as she can,” says the tab’s tipster.
The alleged “source” adds, “Nothing is going to bring her down — not even Taylor’s prissy attitude.”
We’re not sure what’s more offensive: the undercurrent of transphobia in Life & Style’s piece, or the tabloid world’s refusal to let two female stars be anything but feuding enemies.
In any case, a rep for Schilling tells Gossip Cop exclusively that the story “couldn’t be further from the truth,” and notes the pair are actually “great friends.”
