Sarah Paulson Reveals What Her Emmy Win Means to Her

Sarah Paulson holds her Emmy on the cover of Variety‘s new issue.

Here’s what the American Crime Story and American Horror Story actress had to share:

On what her Emmy win means to her: “This means someone else will ask me to do something great.”

On feeling like she belongs: “As an actor, you’re always afraid that you don’t belong, especially when you keep getting let into rooms that you’re not sure you should be in, with more people that you respect and admire. You say to yourself quietly, ‘I hope they don’t realize that they let me in here and make me leave.’ Somehow, standing there with all of those people, their reaction made me think that I belonged.”

On Ryan Murphy: “He wanted [success] for me because I think he really sees me,” she says. “He knows the why of it. He knows it’s going to make me feel that I’m tethered to something in this business that we’re in. He knows that I come from a fractured home and that this is going to make me feel more linked to something in my family of choice — this community that I work in. He wanted it for me because deep down he’s one of the more vulnerable, caring, gentle people you could possibly meet.”
