Angela Bassett appeared on TBS’ Conan earlier this week, where she talked about her husband’s reaction to her American Horror Story sex scene with Lady Gaga.
Bassett told host Conan O’Brien that she actually didn’t tell her husband of almost 20 years, Courtney B. Vance, about the scene after she filmed it, even though she signed a nudity disclosure, and decided to let him see it as all the other viewers did. "I just eased him into it,” she said.
"I just, you know, waited until the night [the episode aired] and said, 'Come on, I want you to see something!'” she explained. “And so I'm showing it, and I have the remote and he's like, 'Woah, woah, woah, what's about to happen?!' I was like, 'Well pause! What's going on with you, are you going to be all right?'”
Lady Gaga took home a Golden Globe for her performance in AHS back in January, and Bassett has been announced as the first woman to direct an upcoming episode of the show.
