Sarah Paulson stepped out at the 2020 Winter TCA Tour on Thursday where she spoke about her new role in “Miss America”.
Paulson will be playing Linda Tripp, the woman who exposed the affair between Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton. While at the conference, Paulson expressed the importance of getting the fine details right, particularly because Lewinsky is executive producer on the Ryan Murphy project.
And while Paulson has been privy to recorded conversations between Tripp and Lewinsky, she won’t give her personal opinions on them.
“The more you know about my more personal feelings about it, the more challenging it’s going to allow you guys to watch it in a way that is open and available and my personal stake is left out of it,” Paulson said.
She added, “I’m just trying my best to honour the character to tell this story. Not to do necessarily right by Linda, although, of course I want to do it. Given some of her actions in this story, what’s most important to me is that I get it right so that the whole story can be told as accurately and wholesomely as possible.”
