Jessica Lange Talks About Leaving 'American Horror Story'

Jessica Lange dresses up while attending a For Your Consideration event for her series American Horror Story: Freak Show on Thursday (June 11) at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles.

The Emmy-winning actress was joined by her co-stars Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Finn Wittrock, Denis O’Hare, Naomi Grossman, and John Carroll Lynch.

Jessica chatted with Deadline this week about her decision to leave the show after four seasons.

“When I originally agreed to do this, it was for one season. [I thought], ‘This will be interesting to try this. I’ve never done this kind of television before.’ Then I had such a great time doing it the first year, when they approached me to do it again I thought, ‘well okay, maybe we can do it season to season,’” Jessica said. Instead, I agreed to do three more seasons. And that was fine because I’ve had just such a great time doing it. I have no regrets or second thoughts about that decision. But there’s always an end to everything.”

FYI: Sarah is wearing a vintage Yanina Couture dress, Kurt Geiger heels, a Jimmy Choo clutch, and Loree Rodkin jewels.

The ladies were joined by Amanda Peet, Jack Black, Pablo Schreiber, and Tim Robbins.

“We forget that she was a woman, a mother, a sister, a friend. We forget that.,” Angela said during the panel about directing Lifetime’s Whitney about Whitney Houston. “We see her as an icon. And I think we as a public, we consumed her talent, we would want to know everything about her life. But she was sensitive, she would say, ‘I just want to be normal, I just want to, you know, can I just have a normal day? Can I just be a person? Can you just see me as a person and not as a commodity?”
