Though there are some minor differences, fans clearly got a kick out of seeing Paulson and Evans rock similar garb on screen.

In Run, Sarah portrays overbearing single mom Diane Sherman – who isolates, homeschools, and cares for her 17-year-old daughter Chloe played by newcomer Kiera Allen.

Chloe is a paralyzed, wheelchair-bound straight-A student who’s told by Diane that she suffers from serious medical conditions including asthma, diabetes, arrhythmia, and hemochromatosis.

However, Chloe is horrified to discover that the label on one of her many prescription bottles peels away to reveal the drugs were actually dispensed under Diane’s name.

Ellen joked that Paulson’s hectic filming schedule, in reference to her working on American Crime Story in LA before shooting the second season of Ratched, was responsible for her successful romance life.

‘You’re rarely home. No wonder your relationship works. You never see one another,’ uttered the talk show host with a smile.
