Transcript for Sarah Paulson talks about the pop culture sensation 'Bird Box'
We are excited for our next guest. She is an Emmy award winning actress. You know her from all eight seasons of "American horror story" and as "The people versus O.J. Simpson." Now she's starring in glass glass. Please welcome Sarah Paulson. Thank you, Michael. You're such a gentleman. Thank you so much. Good to see you. Thank you. Now we can chat. We can chat. I love this. I want to show everybody what you wore to the premiere. Can we see a picture of Sarah? Look at that dress. Talk to me about that. It was plastic. Calvin Klein dress and made of plastic. Which is probably very warm. It was very warm and it was very frigid and I was very warm. And hot. And the balloon sleeves, air would go up and my whole chest would puff. Personal little puff the magic heater in my dress. You did the red carpet and did not go into the movie this. Is something you do. I don't like to watch myself. Do you like listening to the sound -- do you watch the show back ever? No. The answer is no. Yeah, I bet they would but -- I just think -- I watch the show but I understand what you're saying. Based on a giant screen or small one is traumatic for me. If you did watch yourself you'd be pretty impressed? That's right. You think so. I think you would. I don't know, I'd be like, ah. Uhh! I saw it last night. Samuel L. Jackson and James Mcavoy and M. Night shyamalan. All those guy, incredible cast but we heard you and Samuel L. Would have -- what do they call it? A swear-off? Well, we both like colorful language. And we're the only people in the movie who have hair in the movie so we were in the makeup trailer the earliest and latest because he got his wig on and I put my wig on so we would talk all day about "Game of thrones" and all the things that we love about all the shows we're watching and it just created an atmosphere for a lot of excited talking. Colorful. Very colorful dialogue and no one does that like he does. Yes. We got a little sample of that the other day on "Gma." Did he do it. No, but -- You can tell he's stopping himself. He's too cool. Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep. Do you want to sea a little bit of "Glass"? My name is Dr. Ellie staple and I'm a psychiatrist. I specialize in a particular type of delusion of grandeur. I specialize in those individuals who believe they are superheroes. I've been given three days to treat you by whatever means necessary. I came here for you both. Sarah turned around and would not even look at the clip. I was looking at lovely times square. It's lovely out there. This is really -- this a real thing. I don't need to see it. I got to do it. I got to work with those incredible actors and got to make the thing and I'll let you all enjoy it. But not only that -- You actually -- you didn't see the script before you took this role and this role was originally written for a man. For a man. That's awesome. I love that. You went in and took it. I went in and took it from that man. I don't know who the pan was. I'm sorry. I'm sorry to you, but, yeah, and I think not much of the dialogue changed which was great because they didn't try to soften her or feminize her, just kept her authority and her strength which was really cool and I did -- I said yes without reading the script which could be crazy but I do that with "American horror story" every year. I never know what the character is going to be so it's sort of in my blood at this point to just go, yeah, I want to work with M. Night shyamalan and all these people. I think it was a good dice roll. I would say so. Another good dice roll is "Bird box." The "Bird box." Can you believe what a phenomenon it's become? No, but I didn't watch it so I don't understand exactly -- I'm just jealous of all the people in the movie who got to wear the blindfold. I didn't get to wear the blindfold. Thank you for your sympathy and support. It looked like they got to do some acting with the blindfold on. I didn't get to do it or be in the house with all those guys. I got to be in the car and like, ah, freaking out. You do tend to gravitate towards stressful films. I know. I don't know what it is. Thanks for the applause for all the anxiety and stress that my work brings me, yeah. Also we can't let you go without talking about "American horror story." Okay. You play ten characters over eight seasons. Yeah. Do have you a favorite character? I love playing Lana winters in season two the most. It was very -- But every year I get to do the wildest stuff. Do you ever look at it and go what? Every time I'm like, huh? I have to do this. I've had to do crazy things where I had to call my mother and say, this is not something you should watch. I won't let my grandmother watch it. She can't watch bird bur. Almost nothing I do she can watch. I tell you what, we're -- You guys can all watch it and I want you to. Sarah, we love what you do and it is "Glass." It is in theaters tomorrow. Make sure you go check it out.
