How Emma Roberts Really Felt When She Joined Evan Peters On AHS

Ryan Murphy's anthology series "American Horror Story" made Evan Peters and Emma Roberts the stars they are today. While Peters was there since Season 1, Roberts made her AHS debut in "AHS: Coven."

According to Nylon's interview with the starlet, the young couple met at a dinner party, shot a film together, and then embarked on a seven-year-long relationship that became known for its fluctuating status and toxicity. The co-stars officially called it quits in 2019, and Roberts began dating "Tron: Legacy" star Garett Hedlund. The relationship seems to be going better than her last one, as Roberts and Hedlund welcomed a baby boy into the world in 2020.

With a baby, film projects, and her successful book club Belletrist, it seems Roberts has completely moved on from the volatile relationship she once had with Peters, but viewers of the show will notice that their appearances, or absences, seem to correspond to the status of their relationship. When the couple officially separated, Peters also announced he did not plan to return to the show. Although he said it had to do with the mental toll his characters were taking on him, many fans pointed a finger at Roberts, who did return for "AHS: 1984," the series' ninth season.

With a romantic past that seems to affect their work schedule, it's good to know how it all began. For a little insight, this is how Emma Roberts really felt when she joined Evan Peters on "AHS."

The show clearly had to navigate the Roberts-Peters era

Emma Roberts has notoriously been private about her relationship status, during and after the fact. In an interview with Cosmopolitan, when asked about her breakup from Peters, Roberts didn't divulge much, but did say, "I think that no matter who you are or what you do or wherever in the world you are, anything ending is hard, losing something is hard."

When the two first worked together on "Adult World," each was convinced that they didn't like each other. "He wouldn't speak to me," she told Nylon. Peters admitted to Vulture he was a "more introverted actor" for the film. It wasn't until after the film that the two sparked up a relationship that carried into "AHS: Coven," which put their love to the test on screen via fictional threesomes and death. Peters told Vulture that at the time, the two were very "gung-ho" about working together. "We were feeding off each other," he revealed to the outlet.

As for the bad times? Several reports during their relationship indicated that stars let their personal problems affect things at the workplace. A source told OK! Magazine that the couple, who were engaged at the time, were either constantly "kissing or fighting" in-between takes. Neither star has opened up in detail about their breakup yet, so here's hoping the actors find mutual ground for an upcoming season of "American Horror Story." As of now, Peters has been confirmed for Season 10 of "AHS," while Roberts has not announced an appearance.
