Sarah Paulson is pretty close with the woman she portrayed on The People vs. O.J. Simpson. When Sarah won her Emmy, she dedicated a large portion of her acceptance speech to Marcia Clark.

During her heartfelt speech, Paulson said: “The responsibility of playing a real person is an enormous one. The more I learned about the real Marcia Clark, not the two-dimensional cardboard cutout I saw on the news, but the complicated, whip-smart, giant-hearted mother of two who woke up every day, put both feet on the floor and dedicated herself to righting an unconscionable wrong.” The actresse added, “The more I had to recognize that I, along with the rest of the world, had been superficial and careless in my judgment. I’m proud to be able to stand here today in front of everyone and tell you I’m sorry.”
