If you’re a “good gay,” you’ve been watching Feud on FX — Ryan Murphy’s latest series starring Jessica Lange as Joan Crawford and Susan Sarandon as Bette Davis. The series presents two of Hollywood’s greatest female talents in odds against each other, but as it turns out, Lange has personal ‘feuds’ of her own — though they’re “in her head” as she recently told Stephen Colbert.
You can watch the full video of Lange’s appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert below, but here’s the transcript of what she had to say about Conway:
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 counsel 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.
BRB, we’re looking for a towel to clean up all that spilled tea!
