So Sarah Paulson still hasn’t seen Netflix’ Bird Box, and she’s in it…
Bird Box has become one of the biggest movies of the last few years, with 80 MILLION people watching it on Netflix in the first month of its release.
It's safe to say pretty much the entire world has seen it, except for one lady, who is actually in the movie itself.
The iconic Sarah Paulson pairs up with her BFF Sandra Bullock for the flick following their Ocean's 8 collab, and Paulson plays Bullock's sister in the infamous apocalyptic horror.
During a recent appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Paulson explained that she actually never watches her own work, and hasn't done so since American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.
Colbert reminded her that she's potentially missed out on some incredible movies and TV shows, such as The Post, which was Oscar-nominated, but she maintains that she's never actually seen Bird Box.
“You didn’t see you in The Post?!” Colbert asked. “It’s such a brilliant, beautiful scene, you were so good.” Paulson then made Colbert act out the scene so she could see the impact.
Imagine being in a movie which sees the entire population die if they open their eyes, and she won't even take off the blindfold to watch the performance and check who survived in the end?
“It’s so exciting that the movie is resonating with people, and I hope that people find a way to continue to enjoy watching the movie," she said, about the #BirdBoxChallenge.
“But I really hope people would not try to re-enact the most dangerous parts of it. It is a movie, and you shouldn’t try it at home. We don’t want anything tragic to happen.” Sensible words from Sarah.
It's a shame she won't get to see Sandra fight her way through the film blindfolded, we wonder how she feels about all the memes which have been inspired by the flick
