Daaaaaaaaaamn, Sarah Paulson!

The American Crime Story actress strikes a pose wearing an Alexander McQueen bra for W magazine's special television issue. Lest you forget she's a hilarious, awesome lady to boot, Paulson also revealed the one TV character she wishes she could have played.

"Alyssa Milano as Samantha on Who's the Boss? It was my favorite show," she told the magazine. "Tony Danza reminded me a lot of my dad and I wanted Judith Light to be my mother."

So, she may never get to achieve her '80s TV dreams, but the 41-year-old actress landed the role of a lifetime on FX's The People v. O.J. Simpson and opened up about the "abject terror" that drove her to sign on as Marcia Clark.

"The more I read about her, the more I felt a responsibility to get it right for her," she recalled. "I didn't want this to be another opportunity to pile s**t onto her and continue the sexism that went on during that trial."

Paulson admitted that, before doing the show, she was one of those people who "piled s**t" onto Clark.

"It changed everything. I was one of those women who didn't like Marcia Clark," she said of how her perception of the trial changed. "That was based on believing what I was told by the media -- that she was this total monster and a bulldog and so aggressive. It was really transformational to realize, 'God, I had it all wrong.'"

Meanwhile, Paulson revealed her "theories" about whether Marcia Clark and her co-prosecutor, Chris Darden, ever dated exclusively to ET. Find out what she had to say in the video below.
