Bette Davis who? Jessica Lange’s real-life feud is all too real.

“I feud in my head with people. Like now I’m carrying on a feud with Kellyanne Conway — in my head. I mean the thing is, really, if you got a script as an actor, and that script came to you and they preface it by saying, ‘You’ve been offered this part.’ Your agent calls — ‘You’ve been offered this part.’ One of the most important women in the government right, you know, she’s a council to the president, she’s a spokesperson. And then you pick up the script and read it and think, ‘They’ve got to be kidding.’ You’ve got a scene where you talk about ‘alternative facts? You’ve got a scene where you imagine the microwave is turning into a camera? I mean, you go to the inauguration dressed as a nutcracker? You can just hear that conversation with the actor. ‘Are you kidding me?’ Nobody’s going to take this character seriously, she’s a joke.”— Jessica Lange, when asked by Steven Colbert if she has any feuds of her own. We’re with you Jessica, we’re with you.

  • Jack Meoff

    OK so just waiting for the Trump tweets calling Jessica Lange overrated and washed up and that her career is over.

  • Low Country Boy

    I was thinking the same thing. The hell of it is that Trump would give his left nut to be with either Ms. Lange, Ms. Streep or any other leading woman in Hollywood.

    • mhoffman953

      Why would Trump want to date Meryl Streep? Why would any billionaire want to date Meryl Streep?

    • Mo Bro

      You think the billionaire lusts after 70-year-olds, considering there are hordes of 20-year-old golddiggers clambering to get into his wallet?
      Why, that’s certainly a special form of naïveté you possess there, Boy.

    • DCguy

      So MO BRO is so far up Trump’s ass that he can’t even let a comment about Jessica Lange sleeping with him go?

      Wow, seriously, you need to take a look at yourself. IF you are a paid troll then I get it, but if you aren’t, you should explore why you feel the need to do this. What type of self hating-anti-LGBT baggage is it that drives you?

    • ed_burns

      I’m with Mo Bro on this one.

  • natekerchel

    We should be happy that Conway is still in her job – she makes our job of ridicule and mockery much easier. It also highlights the political ineptitude of the illegitimate ‘administration’ in not replacing her a long time ago. You have to wonder why her own family and friends don’t have a word with her about how absurd a figure she is around the world. I did even wonder if she was part of some very very clever political plan to lull us into believing that she is just some dumb racist/conspiracy theorist and alternative fact peddlar before she is revealed as a master political theorist and tactician. No. She is just dumb. Like the rest of the trump cultists.

    • jkthsnk

      She is part of such a plan, just an ignorant and unwitting one. She’s part of the stage show while the masterminds steal all the momey and dismantle the Constitution.

    • natekerchel

      Unfortunately jkthsnk that might to closer to the truth than we imagine.

  • EdWoody

    Counsel, not council, in this context.

  • He BGB

    I don’t think he wants to have sex with Meryl or Lange (above comments) but he wants to be loved by them and respected and when they laugh at him as the joke he is, or criticize him, it drives him nuts. They’re in the big leagues and he so wants to be in that club. He should never have taken the job of president if that’s the case and never have taken such a hard right turn hiring all those horrible people.
    Anyway, back on topic……

    • 1EqualityUSA

      Trump is a disgusting man and must be told so by somebody. He had better build wall around his grave site, or at least plant a urinal on top of it. Portolet Trump, live streaming.

  • Bellerophon69

    Jessica is doing a SMASHING job as Joan Crawford, and she should play Kellyanne in a few years (after this Trump farce has played out into an exciting disaster mini-series) as well, with the necessary Make-up FX; Lange probably has 20 years on the old hag but still looks ten years younger.
