Watch Sarah Paulson Almost Spoil 'American Horror Story: Freakshow'

The actress went from zero to 'crazy snake lady' in a single evening.

If you're a fan of "American Horror Story," this is where you'll want to start shaking your fist at the sky, yelling, "Pauuuuuulsssssonnnn!" -- because oh man, oh man, Sarah Paulson was so close to telling Seth Meyers something seriously juicy about the show's freaky upcoming season.

But she didn't.

"I almost just did something so bad!" Paulson said during an appearance on Meyer's show Thursday, after realizing that she was about to reveal an unrevealable detail about her role. "I almost just got fired."

However! Though she checked herself from spilling even one single bean about "American Horror Story: Freakshow," Sarah was happy to talk at length about the previous season, "Coven," and particularly about that sex scene wherein she writhed around on the floor covered in snakes. So, that's something.
