Evan Peters: 'Lady Gaga’s creativity is cool'
American Horror Story star Evan Peters admits Hollywood isn’t as glamorous as it seems.
Actor Evan Peters was surprised by how down to earth Lady Gaga is when they filmed American Horror Story: Hotel.
The latest series of the popular horror show has seen big names stars like Gaga, who has scored a Golden Globe nomination for her role, and Naomi Campbell join cast regular Evan for some scary fun. Despite Gaga’s A-list credentials, Evan reveals she was completely humble and approachable.
“Well, that's the thing – it is mixed with this otherworldly creativeness,” he laughed to Details magazine when they didn’t believe his claims. “She's on a higher plane whether it is music or fashion and now it's acting. She has immersed herself in the artistic lifestyle. And she has stayed true to herself, which is something that most people can't do - the people surrounding them don't let them do it.
“But she has surrounded herself with people that only accept her for who she is. So it has been enlightening to watch her and see her do her thing, her creative process. I have to say it is inspiring and very cool.”
Evan, who split from fiancée Emma Roberts in June 2015, has seen his star continue to rise since being cast in American Horror Story in 2011. He’ll be returning to the X-Men franchise as Peter/Quicksilver for 2016’s Apocalypse, as well as starring in Elvis & Nixon, alongside Kevin Spacey, Colin Hanks and Michael Shannon.
While the roles keep pouring in, the 28-year-old admits Hollywood isn’t always what it seems. “I mean, the wool has been pulled out from under my eyes,” he confessed. “Is that what the saying is? Things that might seem glamorous, but when you get there, it's like: ‘This is hard work. This is not glamorous at all.’ But I definitely am still naïve and gullible and believe people when they say things. Except when they tell me: ‘Good job.’ Then I don't buy it.”
