Jessica Lange Channels Famous Women in History For NY Mag

Jessica Lange is channeling some of the world’s most famous women.

The Academy Award winning actress recreated portraits of eight famous women from history including Frida Kahlo, Mae West and Gloria Steinem for New York Magazine.

“I don’t think that much has changed in Hollywood for women,” Jessica explained in the feature, adding that not much has changed on a national political level either.

Jessica also opened up about her upcoming role as Joan Crawford in Ryan Murphy’s new anthology series on FX, Feud.

“You do study every breath, every beat, but it can’t just be imitation…we tried to do similar makeup and hair, of course, but that was the extent of the mimicry. And the voice. She had a very melodic way of speaking. It would rise and fall, and it was studied,” she said.
