DeGENERES LETS LANGE RIP NUNS
Catalyst December Issue 2012
Jessica Lange is mostly known as King Kong’s girlfriend, though she has found a new life bashing nuns in the FX disaster, “American Horror Story: Asylum.” Joining with her recently was the ever sensitive Ellen DeGeneres, a woman who bravely stands up against gay bashing. But when it comes to bashing the Catholic Church, she is quite at home acting as an accomplice. Never once did she challenge Lange.
On an episode of the daytime talk show “Ellen,” Lange and DeGeneres had a good time feeding the worst possible stereotype of “mean” nuns. Lange admitted, with typical Hollywood brilliance, that she “wasn’t raised in any kind of religious situation, so, I mean, we didn’t go to church or anything.” We believe her. In discussing nuns, words like “insanity” and “evil” just rolled off their incoherent lips.
Lange ended by saying that her character, Sister Jude, “is the result of this kind of crazy, wild, drunken, loose life she lived before.” Sounds like even Kong would have dumped this tramp.
