Now that basically everyone has seen, and thoroughly discussed, the photo Adele recently posted to Instagram on her birthday, some are noticing that the award-winning singer looks pretty similar to American Horror Story actor Sarah Paulson.
Paulson’s heard about the comparisons and discussed how she feels about them on a recent episode of SiriusXM’s EW Live. “I was on Twitter and I just happened to be scrolling through and it said Sarah Paulson is trending,” she said. “I was like, ‘Wait, what?’”
“Listen, I’ll take it,” said Paulson of the comparison. “I mean, what I wish they were comparing was my talent to her talent and saying that 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. Man, she’s a beauty. So, sure. Great. Give it to me. I’ll take it.”
Paulson speaks for all of us: being compared to Adele is pretty much the greatest compliment ever.
