‘Feud’: Inside Jessica Lange, Susan Sarandon’s Take on a Hollywood Battle Royale

15 February 2017 9:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Dressed in a black ensemble topped by a long brown coat, Ryan Murphy darts back and forth between two rooms in the chilly Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. On this January day, a cramped space in this deliciously retro complex houses the monitors for Murphy as he directs an episode of his new FX series “Feud: Bette and Joan” that is set at the 1963 Academy Awards.

It’s a pivotal moment in the famous rivalry between legendary actresses Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. Having co-starred in “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” both women wanted the career boost of appearing on the Oscar podium. While it’s tough to spoil an event that happened more than five decades ago, let’s just say it was, to quote Davis, a “bumpy night.”

Feud” — which debuts March 5 — mines that decades-old conflict to tell a modern and highly relevant story about Hollywood, sexism, and survival.

Ryan Murphy, Jessica Lange, Susan Sarandon Talk Hollywood Ageism, Sexism and Inspirations for ‘Feud’

14 February 2017 3:04 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As a kid growing up in Indiana in the 1970s, Ryan Murphy only ever penned two fan letters.

One was to actor Ron Palillo, better known as Horshack from “Welcome Back, Kotter.” He never wrote back. The other was to Bette Davis. She did write back.

The legendary actress’ response wasn’t gushy, which made it feel all the more authentic. “She didn’t write ‘Love, Bette Davis, Xoxoxo.’ It was like ‘Thanks for the letter. You’re sweet. Bette Davis,” Murphy recalled Tuesday during a luncheon panel session devoted to his latest FX series, “Feud,” which bows March 5.

Murphy’s first letter to Davis led to a running correspondence which eventually led to a meeting in Los Angeles about a month before the screen legend died in 1989. Nearly 30 years later, the prolific writer-director-producer is at the helm of the limited series that tells the story of Davis and Joan Crawford’s frenemy relationship during the making »

Feud: Bette and Joan Review: Oscar Winners Lange and Sarandon Turn Camp Into an Acting Master Class

14 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If you created a TV show in a laboratory with the specific aim of winning a Best Actress Emmy… it’d probably look a lot like FX’s Feud: Bette and Joan. For better or worse.

The first season of Ryan Murphy’s new anthology series (debuting Sunday, March 5 at 10/9c) is an actor’s dream, letting Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon rip each other to shreds and chew up every bit of scenery as dueling Hollywood divas Joan Crawford and Bette Davis.

‘Feud: Bette and Joan’ Review: Why Care About the Facts When a Show Feels This True?

14 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Feud: Bette and Joan” is a TV show built on pure gossipy indulgence; one that’s inclined to believe the most juicy stories about its characters, but not in a bad way. Historical reports about the truth of what happened on the set of “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” and surrounding events are up for dispute, so instead we have the popular myths surrounding Bette Davis and Joan Crawford’s legendary — and last — on-screen collaboration put on display by Ryan Murphy and his team. The end result is at times simultaneously obvious, essential, and not nearly as campy as you might expect.

And it turns out, that’s for the best.

In the brief clip, the 47-year-old actress pans her camera around different sections of her color-coordinated closet, which features shelves designated for her colossal stiletto collection, designer handbags and vibrant scarves.

"A zip through my closet!" she captioned it. "#StyleByZeta."

"A snap shot of my closet," another post read. "I love a good acrylic wedge heel, don't you?"

She also recently shared a photo of her black-and-gold lace-up booties, which she paired with a classic Chanel bag. "Feet up," she wrote. "Ready to fly."

And can we talk about these neon pink pumps?

So fab!

Catherine Zeta-Jones’ Closet Is So Large It Deserves Its Own Zip Code: See Inside!

7 February 2017 2:18 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

We’ve seen a lot of outrageous celebrity closets over the years. Some have their own water fridges, others their own champagne doorbells, so we didn’t think there was much left to shock us, that is, until we saw inside Catherine Zeta-Jones’s wardrobe. Let’s just say, the space probably has its own zip code.

On Instagram the actress shared a video of a “zip” through her closet, and she wasn’t exaggerating. Set to the noise of a roaring race car engine, the camera literally zips through the halls (yes, halls!) of her closet briefly pausing in certain sections. »
