Angela Bassett surprised husband with Lady Gaga sex scene

Angela Bassett kept her Lady Gaga sex scenes on American Horror Story: Hotel a secret from her husband because she wanted to surprise him.
The pop superstar joined the cast of the TV anthology series for its recent fifth season, portraying The Countess, the owner of the cursed hotel, and Angela was cast alongside Gaga as her lover, Ramona Royale.
The pair had to shoot a steamy romp as part of the storyline, but Angela, 57, didn’t share the news with her spouse, fellow actor Courtney B. Vance, until the episode aired.
“I didn’t tell him…,” the Waiting to Exhale star confessed to U.S. talk show host Conan O’Brien. “I just waited until the night of (its broadcast) and I said, ‘Come on, I want you to see something…’
“And so I’m showing it and I have the remote, and he goes, ‘Woah, woah, woah! What’s about to happen?’ I was like… ‘Are you gonna be alright?’ I just kind of eased him into it!”
“I did not tell him at all!” she laughed.
Angela went on to admit she surprised herself by signing on to star as a series regular on the Ryan Murphy show, because she is not a fan of the horror genre.
“I don’t (like scary things),” she smiled. “I like comedies, I like love stories, documentaries. (I’m on a show) that I would not watch! I remember binge watching the first two episodes before I went in to meet Ryan and I was scared. I had a friend with me (to comfort her)…”
She even suffered nightmares after appearing in the third season, American Horror Story: Coven: “The first year on it and watching it, I had nightmares,” Angela shuddered. “It creeped into my dreams, you know…”
