Leslie Jordan is continuing to get us through quarantine!
As we’ve previously shared, the 65-year-old has become an Instagram sensation over the past couple of months thanks to his Southern drawl and wildly entertaining anecdotes about stars such as Faye Dunaway and Boy George.
He even started spilling the tea all about one of his most recognizable former co-stars: Lady Gaga. Unfortunately, his two newest videos have since been deleted, but here’s how it all began:
“Pillow talk! You know, I can tell when I meet you, within three minutes, how you were raised. When I met Lady Gaga on the American Horror [Story] set… beautifully brought up.”
“‘Please, thank you.’ Lovely girl. Told me to call her Stefani.”
In the second vid, the Will & Grace actor went on to explain how he was exposed to her interesting filming approach when the two had to film a scene together on the AHS: Roanoke set. Leslie played psychic Cricket Marlowethen while the Haus Laboratories founder appeared as the witch Scáthach in the sixth season, with the acting vet explaining:
“We had a scene where she was gonna blow fairy dust in my face, and then knock me down, and blind me, chase me, and then roll me over, kick me. And then she was supposed to squat down on me and cut me with a knife.”
And that’s where things got a little strange, Leslie recalled:
“She took me in the woods right before we shot, and she said, ‘You know, I tend to sexualize all my acting partners.’ I thought, ‘Where’s this going?’ Well honey, she kicked me, rolled me over, and got down on me and started riding me, howling at the moon.”
Jordan wrapped up:
“I didn’t know what I was supposed to do! I just laid there and thought, ‘How do I get myself into these situations?’ Yikes.”
The A Star Is Born actress was simultaneously filming GaGa: Five Foot Two, in addition to working on a number of other projects at the time, so we can understand she was under pressure…
Still seems like pretty bizarre behavior, though! Take a look at Jordan’s epic storytelling (below):

Documentary director Chris Moukarbel shared insight with MTV News at the time into what she was like in the zone:
“She’s so committed to her craft as an actor. It was really a rare kind of moment to be filming them filming this. They gave me a lot of freedom to shoot whatever I wanted. It was very important to me to be able to shoot as much of the production as possible, so you really felt like you were seeing what it’s like to be behind the scenes.”
What did you think of Leslie’s crazy story, y’all?? Let us know (below) in the comments!!
