You Need To See Ellen Scaring The Living Shit Out Of Sarah Paulson

To be fair, I think we're all terrified of Twisty.

If you didn't know, Sarah Paulson is currently killing it as Ally Mayfair-Richards in the newest season of American Horror Story.


And since AHS is such a spooky show, when Sarah made an appearance on Ellen to promote it, Ellen obviously took the opportunity to scare the shit out of her.

But because Ellen loves nothing more than being extra, she didn't just scare Sarah once...

She scared her three times.

Sarah ended up literally falling out of her chair after that last one, because she had revealed earlier that clowns are one of her biggest fears.

And, according to Sarah, Ryan Murphy – the creator of American Horror Story – filled the show with her IRL phobias on purpose. Everyone knows AHS is filled with clowns...

But Sarah's fears also include bees, which featured heavily in the promo for this season...

And the beehive imagery for AHS: Cult is also thanks to Sarah's trypophobia.

I guess now we know why her screams are so convincing.
