Sarah Paulson is thrilled that people think she looks like Adele.
Earlier this month, fans commented on the uncanny resemblance between the pair when the Oscar-winning musician posted a picture of herself, showcasing her enviable new figure, to celebrate her birthday.
And the American Horror Story star was shocked to find her name trending on Twitter, after thousands remarked on the similarities, with one user commenting: “I’m not saying Adele and Sarah Paulson are the same person but…” followed by pictures of the pair side by side.
Commenting on the comparisons, Paulson told SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly Radio: “I was on Twitter and I just happened to be scrolling through and it said Sarah Paulson is trending… I was like, ‘Wait, what?'”
The 45-year-old then realised it was “the Adele thing again” and noted that it wasn’t the first time she’s been compared to the Hello hitmaker.
“Listen, I’ll take it,” she quipped. “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.”
The comparisons first began in December last year, when Adele posted a photo of herself from her Christmas party, and during an Instagram Live Q&A session earlier this month, Paulson was overjoyed to be told she looked like her.
“I think the person who’s the most talented is the person that other person looks like,” the Ocean’s 8 star said. “She doesn’t look like me, if anything, I look like her. She’s Adele, she’s ADELE!”
