On Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday, Sarah Paulson stunned Kimmel with an only-in-Hollywood type of story about attending a “make-out party” full of huge names, but light on the making out. Paulson was invited to this party, at late writer Gore Vidal’s house, by the late great Carrie Fisher, whom she’d only met once. Shirley Maclaine was there, as was Queen Latifah. Matthew Perry was there as well, and that’s where things got a bit awkward for Paulson.

“I didn’t see anyone make out, but there was a hat with names in it, and you were supposed to make out with whomever you pulled out of the hat,” Paulson explained. “Matthew Perry pulled my name out of the hat, and then promptly left the room.” “How do you know he pulled it out?” Kimmel asked. “Because I saw him,” Paulson answered. “He was like, ‘Oh, well…” And he was like, ‘I got you.’ And I was like, ‘Uh, well let’s kiss.’ And he was like, ‘No.’”

The situation was made all the more awkward due to the fact that Paulson and Perry were already acquaintances. But, years later, the two would finally make out...on camera.

“We knew each other a little bit through one of my very best friends in the world, so it was awkward,” Paulson said. “But then we ended up playing romantic partners years later on a show called Studio 60, and I got my kiss. I got several kisses. And boy did he regret not taking me up on it back at Gore Vidal’s make-out party.”
