US magazine reports:
She can’t let it go! Sarah Paulson has already won an Emmy and a Golden Globe Award for her role as prosecutor Marcia Clark in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, but she can’t carry those around all day. Instead, the actress, 42, totes this daily reminder: her character’s brown curly cropped wig.
“I travel with it, I take it with me to hotel rooms before I get ready for these events,” she joked on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’s Tuesday, January 17, episode. “It’s just a way of communing with the thing that had been so great, which was wearing this thing on my head. … I like to carry it around. It’s really nice to see it.”
However, there’s one facet of Paulson’s Clark costume that she doesn’t miss. To get in character, she wore Clark’s “extremely stinky” perfume, Lancôme Magie Noire. “It’s sort of earthy and seductive and also smells like the bottom of a tin can. It’s not good!” she noted. “It was like acting juice. I would sort of sniff it before they called action.”
