"It's just a day at the office," Matt Bomer said of filming onscreen sex scenes

Matt Bomer may have a ton of shirtless and over-the-top sex scenes as Donovan, one of the lovers of Lady Gaga‘s The Countess in this season of American Horror Story: Hotel, but he doesn’t think his husband will get jealous.

“There’s been a lot of that sort of scene work for me over the years in one form or another, so I think we’re all pretty much sort of anesthetized to that,” Bomer, 37, told reporters about husband Simon Halls, 51, at the premiere of American Horror Story: Hotel in Los Angeles on Saturday night.

“It’s part of the job. It’s part of the character’s reality and who they are and their circumstances. That’s what you show up and do. It’s just a day at the office sometimes when you’re an actor,” added Bomer, who shares three sons – Walker, Kit, and Henry – with Halls.

Working with Lady Gaga, however, wasn’t just your usual day on set – especially since he was such a fan of the pop star to begin with (which may have screwed with his nerves at first).

“Once we met and we hung out and she had us over to her house where she was so approachable and relatable, it made it so much easier to work together,” Bomer said.

“By the time we got to set we could drop the mythos of ‘Lady Gaga’ and approach each others as actors. She’s a brilliant actress. She’s so fun to work with,” confessed Bomer. “I was a big fan coming and I’m an even bigger fan as a human being and actress coming out of it.”
