She's just as scared as we are.

We caught up with Metz on her recurring role as Barbara, aka Ima Wiggles, what it's like being a plus-size actress in Hollywood and her real-life American horror story.

If anyone can take on a powerhouse like Jessica Lange, it would have to be someone with the physical prowess of Michael Chiklis.

As a "strongman," Chiklis made his American Horror Story: Freak Show debut Wednesday night and lived up to his title in more ways than one.

Wendell "Dell" Toledo (Chiklis) arrives at the camp of the titular Freak Show along with his wife, Desiree Dupree (Angela Bassett), a hermaphrodite with three boobs. With credentials like that, Dell thinks they should be shoo-ins as the new headliners, but Elsa Mars (Lange) is strapped for cash and hesitant to hire "The World's Strongest Man." However, she is eventually persuaded by his manly strength and his promise to help lead her band of merry misfits.

From It to American Horror Story: 13 of the Creepiest Clowns in Pop Culture History

This week, the latest chapter of American Horror Story unleashed a new monster upon pop culture: Twisty the Clown.

Check out the final moments of the American Horror Story: Freak Show trailer and get a clear idea about what kind of nightmare series creator Ryan Murphy cooked up.

Murphy has already dubbed Twisty "the most terrifying clown ever." The fact that he's played by actor John Carroll Lynch spoke volumes – Lynch played the title killer in Zodiac and Mimi's husband on The Drew Carey Show, which combine to make great training for a homicidal clown.

It seems pretty safe to say that Kathy Bates probably never expected to play a bearded lady, let alone one with a broad Canadian accent. Or that Sarah Paulson aspired to play a woman with two heads – the one on the right puritanically grim and skeptical, the one on the left a bit dippy and worshipful of movie stars.

Gwyneth Paltrow 'Would Love to Be' on American Horror Story, Says Ryan Murphy

Originally posted 10/06/2014 02:35PM

Pro tip: Gwyneth Paltrow may need to consider growing out a beard or sprouting an extra head if she really wants this.

The actress has her eyes on a role in American Horror Story.

"She would love to be on this show," creator (and new dad!) Ryan Murphy told PEOPLE when asked if he'd ever cast the actress at Sunday's premiere of the FX series's latest season. "We'll see."

The season kicking off Wednesday, American Horror Story: Freak Show, takes viewers to Jupiter, Florida, where a menagerie of nightmare-worthy sideshow characters are trying to keep their business alive. (And if Paltrow can't make it for this installment, might we suggest American Horror Story: Messy Kitchen?)

The morning of awards shows aren't all glitz and glamour – and Sarah Paulson says if anyone says otherwise, then they're clearly lying.

Before she walks the red carpet at Monday's Emmys, the American Horror Story actress won't be sunning poolside, indulging in some last-minute pampering or even sleeping in. Paulson, along with the rest of Hollywood, she says, will be going hardcore at the gym.

"I hate people who don't admit that they're doing things like that before they go because it's a crock of s–––," she told reporters at Saturday's Television Academy's Performers Nominee reception in Los Angeles.
