First off added candids from Emma and Evan leaving the Largo in LA on February 9th, check out below if haven’t seen yet. I have added one still and behind the scene of Adult World, which opens limited this Friday plus available on demand! I have updated official and random instagram photos, which two include photos from Tyler Shields’ shoots! Click ‘read rest of this entry‘ for quotes from Evan Peters interviewed by vulture.com…
Emma told Chelsea Handler that she had a crush on you while you were shooting the movie, but that you didn’t talk to her —
Well, I had a crush on her, too, and I didn’t really know how to approach her or talk to her or any of that stuff. And at the time I was a more introverted actor, trying to kind of stay into it and stay focused and not talk too much. But, yeah, I tried to talk to her a few times and, I don’t know, I kept saying the wrong thing. I was really kind of awkward and stupid and like, Oh God, this is just not working out well. I’m just going to shut up and not talk.
What were you saying that was so bad?
I would just try to make jokes, you know? But they weren’t going over very well. You know how when you like somebody and then you say things, kind of like a fifth grader? You like the person so you kind of tease them a little bit or you joke around a little bit? Emma didn’t get that I was joking so it just kind of came off all wrong.
Well, something worked.
Yeah. It all worked out. We started hanging out after the movie and I relaxed a little bit and she started getting my sense of humor.
And then you worked together on American Horror Story: Coven. What was more awkward for you guys to shoot: the threesome scene, or you strangling her to death?
[Laughs.] They were both pretty awkward to shoot. The threesome scene was probably the most awkward, just because it was … bizarre. Super weird. But the way we did it was pretty tasteful. It calmed down a little bit from what it was. We just didn’t want to — we wanted it to be tasteful. If that could be tasteful in any way. Because Emma and I are dating and then poor Taissa [Farmiga]’s there and we had to get together and do this thing and it’s weird.
Ryan said in an interview with EW that he was worried about the strangling scene because you and Emma are “madly in love.”
It was like me and Emma were in an acting class, doing a scene. We were both so gung-ho about it and ready to get into it. It was almost kinda fun; we were feeding off each other. On my close-up, she’s like, “Ow, too hard, too hard. You’re getting too into it.” I was like, “Oh, sorry, sorry, sorry, babe. I didn’t mean to.”
How do you rank the AHS seasons so far?
I always like the first one the best. And then the second one was cool because it was completely different from the first one and I was pretty central. It was a lot of work. And very challenging. And then the third one was fun because I got to work with Emma and be in New Orleans for seven months. There was a lot more comedy this year as well, a funnier tone and it was just a little bit lighter.
