Paulson explained on Tuesday how she was scared about meeting Barrymore due to her impression possibly being seen as offensive.
"All of the sudden I had this white out in terror thinking, like, I did an impression of her on national television. She may hate my guts," the American Horror Story star said of how she impersonated Barrymore on The Tonight Show in September.
"But she didn't. She thought I was okay," Paulson continued before launching into her impression of Barrymore. "She was like, 'Sarah that was such a good impression. I thought it was so, so accurate. I feel super honored. It was so sweet of you.'"
