American Horror Story's Jyoti Amge Is Sick of Being Treated Like a Baby

Ma Petite didn't fare so well on the latest episode of American Horror Story: Freak Show, but thankfully, Jyoti Amge, the actress who plays her, is doing just fine. She's 20 years old in real life, but because of a form of dwarfism called achondroplasia, she's only 23 inches tall. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Amge disclosed her frustrations about being so small: "When people see me on TV, they become very happy because they don't have to interact with me," Jyoti said through a Hindi translator. "When they start interacting with me they ask me questions like I'm a baby or treat me like I'm a baby and hold me like I'm a baby, and that's what they do wrong, really." It's nice to hear directly from Amge, and now I guess we all know how not to act around her if you happen to run into her.
