“American Horror Story: Hotel” star Matt Bomer got up close and personal in a sex scene with Lady Gaga in the season premiere, but the actor said it wasn’t as awkward as you’d imagine.

“[Lady Gaga] is so intelligent, gracious and down to earth,” the actor said on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday. “She had us over to her house before we started to work together so that by the time that I was wearing nothing but a sock with her we could just focus on the scene.”

Bomer also revealed that he calls the pop star by her given name, Stefani. “It makes me kind of let go of the whole mythos of Lady Gaga, who I’m a huge fan of and just relate to her as an actress,” he said.

The fact that the duo has grown so comfortable with each other is helpful, because Bomer said he shot the “Hotel” sex scene wearing nothing but a flesh-colored sock covering his crotch.

“I mean, there’s not much left to the imagination,” he said. “You have a pretty much understanding of somebody’s junk if they’re wearing it.”
