After seven seasons of American Horror Story under her belt, you’d think Sarah Paulson would be impervious to silly scare tactics. In actuality, it’s the complete opposite. The 42-year-old actress is quite an easy target.
During her visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote AHS: Cult, poor Paulson was the victim of not one, not two, but three pranks from the playful host. It started with Ellen spooking Sarah in her dressing room, followed by a double header scare in front of the audience. The last one had me cracking up the most.
Check out the scarefest below, along with Paulson talking about her real-life fears. Apparently, her own personal phobias were written into the current season of the FX anthology. Guess playing her neurotic character isn’t too far of a stretch.
