Sarah Paulson isn't ready to dip her toes into the facial-filler conversation quite yet.

The actress, 49, got candid about her age — and how she's aging — while speaking with close friend Pedro Pascal in a new interview for Interview Magazine published April 16.

She boldly stated her age mid-interview, and while Pascal — who is also 49 — skirted the mention (saying he's "not" happy to mention his age), Paulson dove into her thoughts on aging.

"Well, since I don’t shoot anything into my face at this particular juncture, I imagine everyone knows I’m 49," she said.

The Broadway star, who is currently headlining the play Appropriate, went on to say that her current role is probably what's going to age her skin faster than anything. Despite Pascal telling her that theater will keep her young, she vehemently disagreed.

"If there’s anything that’s going to age me rapidly, it’s going back to the theater," she said. "Sometimes I’m backstage doing this play, Appropriate, and I’m thinking, 'Wow, I’m making these facial expressions multiple times a day all day for months on end. I’ve never had those lines in between my eyebrows.' Well, I expect when I’m done with this play, they’ll be there permanently."

Throughout their interview, Paulson and Pascal reminisced about their long friendship, but Paulson noted that she couldn't recall the moment that they actually met. Pascal joked that it was because they were in a group during that fateful moment.

"People will be shocked to know that you didn’t stand out in this particular group at this time," Paulson joked.

Despite her jokes about where the friendship started, Paulson has a lot of love for her paul. She told Esquire in April 2023 about the early days of Pascal's acting career, when he had come to New York to make it big and she helped him out because he was living the life of a struggling actor. Literally.

"He's talked about this publicly, but there were times when I would give him my per diem from a job I was working on so that he could have money to feed himself," Paulson told the outlet.

At the time, he had only booked a few small roles, and he was on the verge of giving up on his dream of becoming an actor. But he had found a core group of friends — including Paulson — who helped carry him through the tough times.

"I died so many deaths," Pascal said. "My vision of it was that if I didn't have some major exposure by the time I was twenty-nine years old, it was over, so I was constantly readjusting what it meant to commit my life to [acting], and giving up the idea of it looking like I thought it would when I was a kid. There were so many good reasons to let that delusion go."
