After singer Adele showed off her new look in a birthday post earlier this month, fans immediately began comparing her to actress Sarah Paulson.
The 45-year-old actress now reacted to the comparison during a recent interview with SiriusXM’s EW Live. “I was on Twitter and I just happened to be scrolling through and it said Sarah Paulson was trending and I was like, ‘Wait what? Did I die? What happened?’ ” she shared Wednesday. “Oh, it’s the Adele thing again.”
Paulson said the comparison between her and Adele, 32, “has been going on for a while” but noted that she takes it as a compliment.
“Listen, I’ll take it,” the American Horror Story actress said.
“What I wish they were comparing was my talent to her talent and saying mine was as great as hers which quite honestly they can’t say because no one’s talent is as great as hers, which is really irritating but I’ll take looking like her.”
Paulson added, “She’s a beauty.”
