Sarah Paulson has many children. Not the flesh and blood kind – she likens to the characters she plays on screen to her children. And that’s the closest the American Horror Story actress says she’ll come to motherhood.
In a cover feature interview with Town and Country, the 43-year-old said she’s too “selfish” to have children and doesn’t care who judges her for it.
“I don’t want to be torn,” she explained to interviewer Lesley Blume.
While many people chastise women by telling them one day they'll regret being childless, for Paulson, it's about a fear she would one day regret not being childless.
"I don’t want to look at my child and say, 'You’re the most extraordinary thing that ever happened to me, but also the death knell.'"
