Anyone who’s watched an episode of American Horror Story or the new FX mini-series Feud knows that Jessica Lange can read like nobody’s business.
When asked by Stephen Colbert on if she was feuding with anyone at the moment (in honor of her performance as Joan Crawford on Feud) Lange focused her shady energy onto none other than Kellyanne Conway.
“I feud in my head with people. Like now I’m carrying on a feud with Kellyanne Conway, in my head,” the two time Academy Award-winner explained.
Things got really shady when the actress explained Kellyanne’s real life is the equivalent to an actor getting a really terribly ‘out there’ script.
“If you got a script as an actor and that script came to you. Your agent calls you, ‘You’ve been offered this part. One of the most important women in the government right now. She’s a counsel to the president. She’s a spokesperson.’ And then… you read it, and you think, ‘They’ve got to be kidding!” she exclaimed.
But it didn’t stop there. After saying she went to the inauguration “dressed as a nutcracker,” Lange continued by saying:
“Here you’ve got a scene where you talk about alternative facts. You’ve got a scene where you, like, you know, imagine that, like, the microwave is turning into a camera… It’s like, you can just see that conversation. Are you kidding me, nobody’s going to take this character seriously, she’s a joke!”
To top it off, Colbert replied by saying, “Jessica, nobody does.”
