Sarah Paulson too nervous to watch her own performances

Press Trust of India  |  London 

Actress Sarah Paulson says she never watches her own performances as she thinks she will be too critical about them.

The 41-year-old actress, who recently won her first Primetime Emmy Award for her portrayal of Marcia Clark in "The People vs OJ Simpson: American Crime Story", said the pressure from the compliments she received stopped her from being able to watch the show, reported Female First.

"I'm in this new kick of never watching anything I do anymore. I haven't watched 'O.J ...' I didn't watch my Sally (on 'American Horror Story: Hotel'). I haven't watched season six so far. I haven't watched 'Blue Jay'.

"It started with (playin) Marcia (Clark), it started with the 'O.J.' thing. It was the first time in my career where I really felt such an onslaught of complimentary, effusive reactions to the show itself and to my work on it, that I started to get very nervous about my typical way of watching something and ripping it to shreds when it's my own work," Paulson said.

The actress said she prefers to enjoy what people have to say about her work.
