Blind Items Revealed #4 - Anniversary Month

August 7, 2014

As key as she is to the success of this very hit cable show, this multiple Emmy nominee/winner has been threatened with replacement on the show because her drinking is out of control and she has blacked out from drinking on set several times. She is a very rare visitor to the blinds and never about her drinking.

Well she wasn't in Roanoke and do we really expect anyone to work with Ryan Murphy for a long time, on something as dark & twisted as AHS no less, and not self medicate??

I guess playing an alcoholic Joan Crawford wasn't much of a stretch for her then.

Simon said...

@montana, that was Faye Dunaway

WickedBee said...

No, @montana is correct. She played Crawford in Feud.

Jennifer said...

In the minseries “Feud,” Susan Sarandon plays Bette Davis and Jessica Lange plays Joan Crawford.

I loved it, Jessica is great.

I totally believe this one, because she has looked mildly out of it most of the time. Her eyes aren't completely focused and she has a bit of a slur.

A friend went to high school with her daughter and she's an addict (at least, she was in high school, and I don't think that's something you outgrow), so Lange's got some heavy stuff to deal with.

Perhaps she was struggling with the deal she made with the devil.

The blind is dated 2014. I guess she got her drinking under control as she's been featured on every season since 2011. Love Lange.

Felt bad when Sam Shepard died . Maybe she had a hard time with it too . I know he drank alot when he was younger . She is always awesome . I didn't appreciate what a good actor she was when I was younger . Was kinda cool in Coven to see a woman her age really come across as sexual .

Jon said...

Brilliant actor, drunk or not.

She is an amazing talent and I am sure she dealt with a lot of bullshit for a long time in Hollywood.

@mary lamb, Jessica's last AHS was 2015, Curtain Call and I have missed her dearly. She did two episodes of this years Apocalypse which she was awesome in.

kelli grrrl said...

Perhaps she’s a method actor & things got out of control? But she is so fun to watch!

JL said...

When you are with a drinker (Shepard), people tend to also drink too much. A slippery slope.

GentleBreeze said...

Well,props to her ability and longevity. Wasn't she Frances Farmer in that movie? She's been around a long time and has stayed mostly scandal free.

MichiganMama59 said...

She was good in Feud and LOVED her in Frances. If you never saw that you should. But otherwise she is kind "eh" for me.

MichiganMama59 said...

Is this story really from 2014?

Hortensia said...

Jessica Lange and her children were known for their impeccable manners while flying. The children always were reading high quality literature.

Bubbles said...

You mean multi Oscar/Emmy and Tony winner

Anna Mouse said...
