‘American Horror Story’ Twins Photo Fake: Sarah Paulson Admits ‘Freak Show Hoax
Sarah confesses the Twitter photo was just digital mockup from her season 2 character, Lana Winters. “Everyone thinks that is the character of Dot and Bette in terms of the way I look — that’s just what the company came up with [to] digitally show the two heads to Ryan,” Sarah admits to Vulture. “They used a picture of me as Lana Winters because it was in the period. So that’s not what I’ll actually look like as Dot and Bette.” Jaw = dropped right now. We can’t believe this!
Sarah also admits she’s known about her two-headed character for a while now. “I’ve known about this since the middle of last season,” she tells Vulture. “I know how much people want to know and how much they actually like to be surprised, and I knew that I could never do anything until Ryan told me that I could and once I got the go-ahead.”
