Jessica Lange has said that she’s flattered to be compared to Caitlyn Jenner.

Jenner revealed a dramatic image overhaul today (June 1), as she continues the process of transitioning to live as a woman.

Many Twitter users noticed similarities between American Horror Story star Lange and the shots taken of Jenner for Vanity Fair.

After being told of the meme by the Daily Beast, Lange declared: “Oh really? That’s so wonderful.

“Well now I’m going to have to look for that picture.”

Lange went on to acknowledge that she was initially totally unaware of the comparison to Jenner.

“Trending on Twitter because Caitlyn Jenner on the cover – you see I don’t do any of this stuff, the Internet,” she admitted.

“So I have no clue when people use this terminology. I have to repeat it to understand.”

Jenner formally introduced herself on Twitter today, breaking US president Barack Obama’s record as the fastest person to reach 1 million Twitter followers.

Jenner has been embraced with love and support on Twitter today from family members like Kim Kardashian West, fans like Lena Dunham and organizations like Planned Parenthood.

Her transition will be documented in an E! reality series to air this summer.

Just don’t call it an American horror story. Lange and Byrne will play the grandiose aging matinee idol James Tyrone, famed as the Count Of Monte Cristo, and his morphine-addicted wife Mary in Jonathan Kent’s new revival of the Eugene O’Neill modern classic. The production, slated for next spring, will be a Roundabout Theatre Company presentation, with enhancement funding from Ryan Murphy, the producer of Lange‘s successful American Horror Story franchise on FX.

Lange has been promising to play the role on Broadway ever since she won great notices and an Olivier Award nomination for a 2000 West End revival staged by Robin Phillips and co-starring Charles Dance. Guardian critic Michael Billington wrote that “Lange, in a magnificently unsentimental performance, reminds us that Mary is a woman who constantly twists the knife in the family’s wounds. You can argue that her addiction is to blame; and Lange captures astonishingly Mary’s transition during the day from nervous, hankie-twisting tension to dreamy narcotic escape. But, without judging the character, Lange shows it is her endless picking at the familial scabs that is the real source of agony.”

ByrneByrne (In Treatment) returns to O’Neill on Broadway, having led key revivals of A Moon For The Misbegotten and (for the Roundabout) A Touch Of The Poet. Tony Award-winner John Gallagher (Spring Awakening; recently of The Newsroom) has signed on to play their sickly son Edmund. The rest of the cast and team will be announced later.

Actress Jessica Lange expressed little surprise that a movie studio reportedly turned down 37-year-old actress Maggie Gyllenhaal as “too old,” declaring that the entire movie making industry was run from a “male point of view.”

“Even if a woman runs a studio, she still does it with a male point of view,” Lange, the lead actor on the FX series American Horror Story, said in an interview with TheWrap.

“That men continue to be fascinating and attractive and virile, and women age and are no longer sexual or beautiful ,” she said. “It’s a fantasy that has nothing to do with reality.”

Jessica Lange took home the Emmy for her creepily incredible performance in ‘American Horror Story: Coven,’ but will she return to the spooky series after ‘Freak Show?’

American Horror Story has become a cult favorite, and what would it be without Jessica Lange? The actress, 65, won for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie at the Primetime Emmys in Los Angeles on August 25, and caught up with her after the big moment. Read on for Jessica’s interview — she promises that Freak Show will be the best season yet (and hopefully not her last)!

Jessica Lange won the Emmy on August 25, her second win for American Horror Story, third Emmy overall and and third nomination for the miniseries.

The actress told she was “stunned” and did not expect to win, but if you watch AHS, you know why Jessica got award — she’s incredible. And lucky for us, the actress promises that next season will be even better than her award-worthy performances from past rounds.

“Well, I’m actually looking forward to this season,” Jessica told at the award show. “I think this season is going to be the most extraordinary that we’ve done. I think that what we’ve got – what’s working there, the potential is pretty extraordinary. And if it can all come together, and if we can keep on track, I think it’s going to be something really, really special.”

From the looks of the teaser trailers and recent casting news, we’d say Ryan Murphy‘s team will pull it together. I mean, how could circus chaos not be extraordinary?

“There’s a lot of chaos, but I find I work well in chaotic situations,” she admitted of her time on set with the eclectic cast. “There’s tremendous creative energy, always. I just feel very fortunate to have these people to work with.”

Jessica Lange: Will She Return To ‘AHS’ After ‘Freak Show’?
While Jessica promises the best season yet, will Freak Show be her last? When we told her we had heard that she’d be returning for potential seasons post circus-fest, she responded coyly: “Who told you that?”

Hopefully, she won’t be leaving anytime soon because her fans, for one, will be devastated. “One day I was walking down the street in New Orleans, and I passed this group of young men that were sitting on a stoop,” Jessica tells “And as I went by, I heard the guy say, ‘Holy sh*t balls. The Supreme!’ I thought that was the greatest thing ever.”

Congratulations to Jessica on her win!

The Emmy Awards are tonight, which means that the best of the best in the world of television from this past year will be honored. It’s a mixed bag of drama comedy and reality but the Emmys are what shows strive for and there are some huge names and shows up for awards tonight.

ust like the male side of things, the women of this year’s best television movies and miniseries were forced to fight it out in the same category and there were a few great names to consider for the award. Jessica Lange is no stranger to the Emmys, especially after her role on American Horror Story, but she had stiff competition. Kristen Wiig was a surprise nomination for her comedy role on The Spoils of Babylon but she was outstanding nonetheless in the role.

But there could only be one winner and the Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie ended up going to Jessica Lange for American Horror Story: Coven.

Jessica Lange and Sarah Jessica Parker will star opposite Shirley Maclaine and Alan Arkin in the road-trip comedy “Wild Oats,” sources said.

The Exchange will be selling “Wild Oats” at Cannes.

Producers are Blythe Frank of Wild Pictures and Kip Konwiser of the Konwiser Brothers. Stealth Media Group is exec producing.

The project has been in development for several years with The Weinstein Co. acquiring U.S. distribution rights in 2012. At that point, Jacki Weaver was attached along with MacLaine.

Andy Tennant, whose credits include “Hitch” and “Sweet Home Alabama,” is directing from a script by Claudia Myers and Gary Kanew.

Maclaine portrays a widow and retired history teacher who receives a life insurance check accidentally made out for $5 million instead of the expected $50,000. Her best friend, portrayed by Lange, urges her to deposit the money and escape their small town life to the Canary Islands.
