Jyoti Amge Of 'AHS' Opens Up About Being Treated Like A Baby

FX

Because of her small stature, "American Horror Story" actress Jyoti Amge is often treated younger than her age. The 20-year-old, who SPOILER ALERT played Elsa's assistant Ma Petite until the character's death on the Nov. 19 episode, opened up to ET Online about this frustration in a recent interview.

"When people see me on TV, they become very happy because they don't have to interact with me," Amge, who holds the Guinness world record for "world's smallest woman," said. "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."

Amge, who is 23 inches tall, made similar remarks in an FX interview in October.

"I don't let everyone pick me up. I only let myself be picked up by whomever I want to be picked up by," she said. "I don't like it if I am being held like a baby. If someone holds me normally, and I'm not being coddled, I feel much more comfortable."

"People like me might be small in stature, but they can also act," she said. "Regular people should not underestimate people who are small. In every aspect, they can do the things that normal people can."
