It's a good thing American Horror Story
wrapped up its second season Wednesday night. One of its stars, Sarah Paulson, can sleep a little easier now.
"I can't watch it at night and I'm on it," the Emmy-nominated actress, 38, tells the Associated Press.
"There are some people who like to be scared and I understand that, but I am not one of those individuals. I like to cozy up with a nice book and a bath and a teddy bear. I am not interested in being terrified before I go to sleep."
It's been a breakout year for the FX horror show, and for Paulson personally. One highlight was when Miley Cyrus
, a fan of the show, started following Paulson on Twitter. "@MsSarahPaulson I can't WAIT a whole week until the next episode!" the pop star wrote
at one point.
"That was pretty wild," Paulson tells the Huffington Post
. "I think I tweeted her back
like, 'Are you kidding? Did you follow me?' Miley Cyrus watches American Horror Story
? I couldn't understand."
Paulson also earned Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for her work on the HBO movie Game Change
. She didn't win, but was still thrilled.
"It's okay to sit in the Golden Globe room and look around and think, 'Oh, Helen Mirren's a loser tonight, so is Nicole Kidman
. Meryl Streep lost tonight. Jessica Lange didn't win.' If you're gonna be in the company of losers, that's the company to be in."
She adds: "I definitely have felt how wide-reaching this season has been in terms of people who have come up to me in restaurants and in New York, walking down the street. It's wild."
