The Internet just made a bold new discovery 20 years in the making: Sarah Paulson did NOT star in Matilda.

Despite the actress’s striking resemblance to Embeth Davidtz, who played Miss Honey in the beloved 1996 movie, they are NOT the same person.

Honestly, though, it’s hard to believe they aren’t related.

THEY SHARE THE SAME FACE.

The Twitterverse wasn’t ready for this Mandela Effect-type realization.

Paulson herself was loathe to confirm the upsetting news:

However, it’s not the first time the People vs. O.J. Simpson star has netted comparisons to other actors.

Many think Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown looks like a young Paulson, and we can’t say we disagree.

Lana Del Rey, too (LOLOLOLOL).

Peggy Lipton?

The Twin Peaks Log Lady (it's a stretch, but we see it).

Hmm … we sense a conspiracy theory brewing here.

Matilda reboot, anyone?
