Sarah Paulson Left Petrified After Being Scared By Ellen DeGeneres THREE TIMES — Plus, More Classic Scares!

After starring in six seasons of American Horror Story, you'd think Sarah Paulson would be tough to scare. But it turns out the actress has a pretty low threshold for horror — because she was left trembling on the floor after being spooked not one, not two, but THREE times by scaremaster Ellen DeGeneres!

But it turns out the actress has a pretty low threshold for horror -- because she was left trembling on the floor after being spooked not one, not two, but THREE times by scaremaster Ellen DeGeneres! First, the daytime host startled Paulson by hiding in her dressing room closet and sneaking up on her with a maniacal laugh. Then, as the two were reliving the moment on stage, Ellen had one of her staffers sneak up behind Paulson and give her another scare! Now almost as paranoid as her AHS: Cult character, the 42-year-old had a feeling Ellen wasn't done yet. She nervously asked if someone was about to pop out of the chest behind their chairs. Seconds later, that's exactly what happened -- and she STILL let out a blood-curdling scream! Ch-ch-check out the clip (above) and see more of Ellen's best scares (below)!

Ellen DeGeneres" Birthday Gift From Portia de Rossi Made Her Cry - Watch the Touching Moment!

Portia de Rossi surprised her wife Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen Show to celebrate her 60th birthday. On the show, Portia gave Ellen her birthday gift – which made Ellen cry!

On the show, Portia gave Ellen her birthday gift – which made Ellen cry! The gifting started with a video, which had Portia doing a voice over. “When people ask my wife, ‘who is the person, living or dead, you most want to interview?’ her answer is always Dian Fossey,” Portia said in the video. “Ellen remembers reading National Geographic at home as a little girl and remembers Dian on the cover of the January 1970 magazine. Ellen was struck by Dian’s dedication to animals, her mind, and her bravery. Ellen read how in 1967 Dian Fossey set up a camp she called Karisoke in the Virunga Mountains in Rwanda. This is where Dian began studying several dozen gorillas, and at that time, Dian was alone in protecting them.” “Fast forward 18 years and the world was sad to learn that Dian was murdered in 1985 in her cabin at Karisoke. Most of us know Dian’s work from her book, ‘Gorillas in the Mist,’ which is legendary and carried on her story. Her story is also carried on through the work of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund. The Fossey Fund exists to ensure the survival and thriving of wild gorillas, in close partnership with the government of Rwanda. But unfortunately, today there are only 880 mountain gorillas alive on earth. Thus, the work of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund remains vitally important to ensuring their future,” Portia continued. “So, for your birthday, Ellen, I am bringing you and your hero, Dian, together by building The Ellen DeGeneres Campus of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund. Ellen, you will carry on Dian’s legacy by giving them a permanent home in Rwanda. Now, you will join Dian as a protector and champion of these amazing animals, the mountain gorillas. Happy birthday!,” the video concluded. Watch below for the full reveal!.....»»

Thankfully that wasn't the case on Monday, because poor John Krasinski was a really good sport about (literally?) getting the piss scared out of him by Freddy Krueger. Emily Blunt's husband was on the show to promote A Quiet Place, the horror movie he wrote, directed, and stars in, when Ellen decided to give him a fright of his own. The Office alum didn't see it coming, of course, as it happened while he was in the middle of an intense staring contest with the daytime queen. She's getting crueler with these by the day!

On Monday, Ellen DeGeneres appeared on Dax Shepard's Armchair Expert podcast where the comedian opens up about the death of her former girlfriend. Related: Watch Ellen DeGeneres Surprise Jimmy Kimmel! The 60-year-old, who was living in New Orleans at the time, recounts: "My girlfriend was killed in a car accident when I was like 20 years old. And I wasn't doing comedy, I think I was probably waitressing someplace at the time. I was living with her, and when she was killed, I couldn't afford to live where we were living together. So, I moved into this tiny little basement apartment that I was sleeping on a mattress on the floor infested with fleas. I thought, 'Why is this beautiful, 21-year-old girl gone and fleas are here?"' Despite her grief, the funny lady used the somber material as inspiration for her now-famous "Phone Call to God" bit. "I just thought it would be amazing if we could just pick up the phone and call up God and ask questions and get an answer... It just unfolded, I just wrote the entire thing and when I finished, I read it and I thought, 'Oh my God, that's hilarious. I'm going to do this on Johnny Carson and I'm going to be the first woman in the history of the show be asked to sit down."' In November 1986, DeGeneres did exactly that, and was the first female comedian invited to sit down on The Tonight Show host's couch after a stand-up routine. Listen to the full podcast HERE.
