American actress Sarah Paulson shared a picture on her Instagram page taken from the set of her latest film role, "American Crime Story: Impeachment." 


Sarah Paulson has starred in many hit movies and is a recipient of many awards, including a Primetime Emmy Award and a Golden Globe Award. Hence she is a known face and needs no introduction in Hollywood. 

However, Paulson looked a whole lot different in a recent picture posted on her Instagram page; so much that even her most hardened fan would have found it difficult to recognize her.

The actress shared a picture taken from the set of her latest television role. In the photo, she wore a cream-colored jacket. Paulson accessorized her look with big round glasses. 

She also wore blonde hair and was looking down at her side in the snapshot. In the caption to the post, Paulson revealed she was playing the character, Linda Tripp, in "American Crime Story: Impeachment," writing

"Linda. American Crime Story: Impeachment has begun principal photography."


Paulson referred to Linda Tripp, Monica Lewinsky's confidante before the breakout of her scandal with former US President Bill Clinton. Tripp's secret tape recordings of Lewinsky's conversations with Clinton exposed their affair to the public. 

Paulson's fans know her well for how she transforms into different characters for her movie roles and based on the snapshot she posted, the verdict is that she got it right once again. 

To get her to look like Tripp, costume and make-up artists must have done a lot of make-up on Paulson, but she did not need their help.


Paulson also shared the same picture of her incredible transformation on her Twitter page, with many fans amazed at how she closely resembled Tripp. 

"American Crime Story: Impeachment," tells the story of the affair between former PLOTUS, Bill Clinton and Lewinsky, which led to the president's impeachment by the House of Representatives, though the Senate acquitted him. 


In the movie, actress Beanie Feldstein, who starred in "Booksmart" will portray Lewinsky, while Clive Owen will portray President Clinton. Annaleigh Ashford portrays Paula Jones, who sued President Clinton for sexual harassment. 

The series is based on the book "A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President," written by Jeffrey Toobin. No premiere date has been confirmed for the series' release. 


To get her to look like Tripp, costume and make-up artists must have done a lot of make-up on Paulson, but she did not need their help when she stepped out for a relaxed trip to the salon last Tuesday. 

The busy actress went make-up free to the Balayage by Nancy Braun Salon clad in a cream-colored zip sweater and olive green sweat pants. She also wore a black facemask and carried a green tote bag on her shoulder. 

Paulson still looked great even as she was all shades natural, showing that she can rock any look and always turn out gorgeous. It is no wonder she remains one of the best actresses in the business.
