Hello, have you ever noticed how much Adele looks like Sarah Paulson? Don’t You Remember? It’s something in the bone structure, the way their mouths burst open—in joy or horror—in a similar and chic fashion. Rumour Has It the adored singer reached a new level of twinsie when she posted a pic of her 32nd birthday celebration. Fans were abuzz with the Someone Like You of it all. So how does Paulson feel about not being a One And Only? She’s Turning Tables on any would-be rivalry narrative, offering only Sweetest Devotion.

Speaking to SiriusXM’s EW Live, the American Horror Story star shared what it was like for her. “I was on Twitter. I just happened to be scrolling through,” Paulson recounted, “And it said ‘Sarah Paulson’ is trending. And I was like, ‘Wait, what? Did I die? What happened?!’”

She was relieved to discover, “Oh, it’s the Adele thing again. This has been going on for a while.” Which, duh. Every Glance invites comparison.


Paulson’s pleased, noting, “Listen, I’ll take it. 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.”

It’d Be Divine if Paulson and Adele joined forces, combining their incredible talents in a project. Call me a Daydreamer, but it’s easy to imagine Ryan Murphy looping the pop diva into a campy cameo for a new season of American Horror Story. As wonky as that show can be, such a dynamic duo could prove a Remedy. However, All I Ask is for some clever filmmaker to ground a drama around the impeccable Paulson, and then cast Adele as her sister or doppelganger or lounge singer fantasy. The possibilities are endless…uh…Skyfall.
