Matthew McConaughey is a big fan of actress Sarah Paulson, and he recently made the actress's night when he paid her a compliment.

Paulson, best known for her role on American Horror Story and the film Carol, is currently playing the role of Marcia Clark on The People v OJ Simpson: American Crime Story.

She recently told People magazine about the compliment she received from Matthew McConaughey.

"I was actually with someone last night where Matthew McConaughey said the most lovely thing to me," Sarah Paulson said as she walked the red carpet at the PaleyFest tribute to AHS: Hotel. "If I could've written it down...I mean, I've got it committed to memory, and I'm not going to repeat it because it's just for my own personal self!"

"It was one of the moments where I realized, 'God, you know, sometimes you work and you don't know that anyone is noticing or seeing, and other times you're working in a way that you can tell that people are responding to the thing that you're doing,'" Paulson added of Matthew McConaughey's words. "This has been a new world for me to be inhabiting, of people feeling an awareness of my work, which I have not experienced before in this way. So it feels incredibly nice--and I can say it's preferable to the former!"

People can catch Sarah Paulson on The People v OJ Simpson: American Crime Story on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on FX. People can check out Matthew McConaughey just about every night of the week in one or more of those stupid Lincoln ads.

Maybe Sarah Paulson will consider offering up a rather underhanded compliment to Matthew McConaughey one of these days, too. She should tell him he's far more intriguing on the big screen than he is talking to himself inside a Lincoln.
