Two-time Oscar winner, star Frances, Blue Sky, All That Jazz and dozens of other films, Jessica Lange is celebrating her birthday today. The actress is 71 years old. She began her career in the 1970s with a role in the film King Kong. The girl, unknown at that time, bypassed Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn on auditions, getting her ticket to a great acting future. After a noisy premiere, Lang’s career took off. In her filmography appeared the iconic “The Postman Calls Twice”, “Tootsie”, for the role in which she received her first “Oscar”, “A Streetcar Named Desire”, which brought her a Golden Globe, and other projects.
Now Jessica Lange continues to actively act in films. One of her last works is participation in the TV series “Politician” and “American Horror Story“. Besides cinema, Jessica has another long-standing passion – photography. She shoots, publishes photo albums and organizes her exhibitions. Sometimes the actress also remembers her modeling past, participating in advertising campaigns and fashion shows. Before getting to the big screens, Lang worked as a model. Deciding to quit her studies at the Art University of Minnesota, she flew to Paris with her husband, photographer Paco Grande, where agents spotted her. After living in the French capital, Jessica Lange returned to New York. There, her dizzying film story began. We have collected footage of those years – the time of the beginning of her career. Watch and be inspired.
