Ratched star Sarah Paulson has long been one of Ellen DeGeneres' favorite people to spring her running jump-scare gags on. On Tuesday, even though Paulson was not even in the studio, DeGeneres managed to terrify her yet again.
After talking about her upcoming turn as Linda Tripp in American Crime Story: Impeachment, she was showing videos of her dog when Ellen managed to shock her, and it got the scream out of Paulson that she so relishes.
