Jessica Lange to Retire from Acting

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celeb News,

Jessica LangeJessica Lange is set to retire from acting. The Oscar and Emmy Award-winning actress has announced she will leave her glittering career behind after four decades and numerous accolades to pursue a quieter life.

"I am coming to the end of acting. I have a list: another stage production, maybe one or two more movies, one more season of American Horror Story, and then that is it for me. Because I think that's enough. I want to go out with a bang... or should I say, a scare?" she told the Los Angeles Times newspaper.

The 64-year-old star has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity as the leading lady on anthology show American Horror Story - co-created by Glee mastermind Ryan Murphy - in which she plays a new character each season. Jessica earned an Emmy Award for her role as Constance Langdon in the first season and a further nomination for her role as Sister Jude Martin in the second run, subtitled Asylum.
