Sarah Paulson has named and shamed the actress who sent her six pages of unsolicited feedback after watching her perform in a play.

Appearing on the “Smartless” podcast Monday, the Emmy winner discussed the theater custom of meeting celebrities backstage after a performance with hosts Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, and Will Arnett.

When the “Ozark” actor asked if any of the trio accepts performance feedback from visitors, the “American Horror Story” alum detailed an “outrageous” incident she had in the past.

“I did do a play once,” she began. “The last time I was on stage, I did a play called ‘Talley’s Folly’ at the Roundabout, and the actress — and I’m going to say this, and I’m not going to ask you to cut this out, because I don’t f–king care — this actress came to the play. Her name is Trish Hawkins — Hi, Trish! Hi, Trisha.”

“Trish Hawkins came to the play — am I going to get sued? I don’t care, because I think this is outrageous,” she said.

Paulson said that Hawkins irritated her almost immediately upon first meeting, as she pointed out an obvious fact about Paulson’s outfit.

“She came to the play, proceeded to say — she looked at me up and down and then she went, ‘Your dress is yellow. Mine was pink.’ And I thought, ‘What?’”

Hawkins starred as Sally Talley in “Talley’s Folly” twice; off-Broadway in 1979 off-Broadway and again in 1980 during its Broadway debut.

In 2013, Paulson took on the role in the play’s revival in NYC.

“Cut to two days later, I got an email that was six pages long of notes and a communication to me about what she had done when she had done the play, what she recommended I do,” she shared.

“It was outrageous. It was really outrageous. Trish Hawkins, I have not forgotten it, and I hope to see you never.”

Paulson admitted that she still has Hawkins’ notes, but never told her mom — who knew Hawkins personally — about the ordeal.

“I just put it back in the file of things my mother has done,” she added.
