Sarah Paulson is portraying the character of Linda Tripp on the FX series "Impeachment: American Crime Story." The 46-year-old actress is now regretting her choice to wear a fat suit for the role.
In her interview with LA Times, Sara Paulson admitted wearing a fat suit for Linda Tripp's character. The actress said, "I wouldn't make the same choice going forward, and Sarah also said, "fatphobia is real."
Even some critics have come forward to support Sarah Paulson's statement. A New York-based actor, Abby Rose Morris, agreed she shouldn't have worn the fat suit for the role. Abby said, "Fat actors rarely get cast in roles. When we're shut out of the roles intended to be fat the message is that fat actors don’t deserve to be seen."
