Evan Peters: Shooting American Horror Story Nude Scenes "Scared" Me

USMagazine, Wednesday, October 24, 2012, 4:30pm (PDT)

Evan Peters isn't entirely comfortable dropping trou on the eery FX series American Horror Story: Asylum. "It's a lot of butt. I got scared," the actor admits in an interview with New York Magazine's Vulture. "Unless I'm around certain people, I don't like to be naked."

The 25-year-old wasn't given any warning before he was asked to disrobe on the small screen (including one torrid sex scene with a female costar in the Oct. 17 season premiere). "You pretty much get the script and find out that way," explains the actor, who's dating his Adult World costar Emma Roberts.

If Peters' frequent nudity has made things awkward on set, he hasn't noticed. "I have a great picture of me naked on a bed just wearing a c-ck sock, and the crew is all around me, bored. We were all waiting for a film roll or a lens to arrive. So I'm just sitting around naked on the bed and everyone's so nonchalant," he recalls. "It was really weird for me, like, 'Man, this is awkward.'"

Unlike Dylan McDermott, who frequently appeared nude during the show's first season, Peters says he isn't in tip-top shape. "He's smart," Peters says of his buff former costar, 50. "He had them bring him a gym on set. They hooked him up with a bench-press machine and all these free weights so he could work out in between takes. That dude was naked the whole time. I'd like to [ask for] that, but I'm not Dylan McDermott, so I can't be like, 'Give me a bunch of free weights,' you know?"

American Horror Story: Asylum airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. EST on FX.
