American Horror Story might be the show where Emma Roberts and Evan Peters co-star, but it could also be the nickname for these real-life lovebirds' disastrous first kiss.
Evan tells Chelsea Handler the whole sorry story in this clip from the May 19 episode of Chelsea Lately — recounting how he and Emma fell in love on the set of the movie Adult World.
"I had a huge crush on her," Evan begins. "I tried to be cool or, like, funny or whatever and flirt a bit. But it didn't go over very well because I was just saying the wrong things … Perfect example: There's a party scene at the end of the movie, and we were having a party and having a good time. And the director's like, 'Evan! Kiss Emma!' And I was like, 'Oh, s—t.'"
Wait, kissing your celebrity crush is an "oh s—t" moment? Evan explains:
"It's not scripted, so I got really awkward and really weird, and kinda forgot what to do … And I kissed her, and it was good, but it was super awkward, so I felt weird about it, and I was like, 'That was… like kissing Cloris Leachman.' And she was super pissed off and weirded out."
Luckily, they were able to move past that unfortunate gaffe. "We stopped talking a little," Evan remembers, “and I sent her some eggplant emoticons, and it was on!"
OK, so lesson learned: Do not compare your crush's lips with those of someone 65 years her senior.
