Sarah Paulson stopped by “The Late Show” Thursday night and confessed she has yet to see “Bird Box” despite being in it.
The “Glass” star was thrilled when Stephen Colbert told her that in the first four weeks the Netflix movie was streamed in 80 million households but admitted she doesn’t like watching her own work.
“I don’t watch anything I do ever… not since ‘The People vs. OJ’,” the “American Horror Story” star revealed. This revelation shocked the late-night host.
“You didn’t see you in ‘The Post’?!” Colbert exclaimed. “It’s such a brilliant, beautiful scene, you were so good.” Paulson then made Colbert act out the scene so she could get an idea of how she came across on screen.
Earlier in the day, Paulson appeared on “Live! with Kelly & Ryan” where she was told about the #BirdBoxChallenge, in which fans blindfold themselves and try to walk around like the characters in the movie, which left the Golden Globe-winning actress concerned.
“It’s so exciting that the movie is resonating with people, and I hope that people find a way to continue to enjoy watching the movie.
“But I really hope people would not try to re-enact the most dangerous parts of it. It is a movie, and you shouldn’t try it at home. We don’t want anything tragic to happen.”
Paulson also discussed her role in the sort-of superhero movie “Glass”, directed by M. Night Shyamalan, whom she says is a “collaborative” director but does not like actors going off script.
