Sarah Paulson talks Botox and filler: ‘I don’t shoot anything into my face’

Sarah Paulson is all about aging gracefully.

The actress, 49, sat down with her longtime friend, Pedro Pascal, also 49, for an interview with Interview Magazine, and the two spent time discussing growing older.

Although Paulson was happy to talk about her age, Pascal admitted he was “not,” prompting the “American Horror Story” star to share more about where she stands with cosmetic procedures.

“Well, since I don’t shoot anything into my face at this particular juncture, I imagine everyone knows I’m 49,” she joked.

The two also touched on Paulson’s latest project, starring in the play “Appropriate” on Broadway, which is running now through June 23. Pascal said that he believed “going back to the theater” would be the one thing “that’s going to keep you young,” but the actress promptly disagreed.

“Oh my god,” she told him in response. “If there’s anything that’s going to age me rapidly, it’s going back to the theater.”

Paulson added that all the facial expressions she’s making on stage each night are causing her to get wrinkles.

“Sometimes I’m backstage doing this play, ‘Appropriate,’ and I’m thinking, ‘Wow, I’m making these facial expressions multiple times a day all day for months on end. I’ve never had those lines in between my eyebrows.’”

She added, “Well, I expect when I’m done with this play, they’ll be there permanently.”

At one point, Paulson even commented on her shoot being part of the same issue that featured Rihanna in a nun-like look, telling Pascal she couldn’t “knock” the singer “off the cover.”

“Nor would I want to,” she added. “Just glad to be gracing the same issue with the magical queen on the cover.
