Hush, the Supreme has spoken! Veteran actress and American Horror Story kween Jessica Lange is used to the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and everything that comes along with it — including celebrity feuds. While Lange has undoubtably experienced a few of her own over the years, we're most interested in her latest on-screen rendition, the cunningly titled FX show , which depicts the most infamous of Hollywood rivalries: that of Joan Crawford (played by Jessica Lange) and Bette Davis (played by Susan Sarandon).

While on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert promoting the show, Stephen asked her to spill the beans on her own Hollywood feuds, to which she responded:

"I feud in my head with people. Like now, I’m carrying on a feud with Kellyanne Conway in my head."

Whoa, shots fired! But then she launched into it even further, prefacing it as if an agent were offering her Kellyanne's part:

"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 pick up the script, you read it, and you think: 'they’ve got to be kidding!'"

Picking up steam:

"You’ve got a scene where you talk about alternative facts. You’ve got a scene where you imagine that the microwave is turning into a camera. I mean, you go to the inauguration dressed as a nutcracker?"


"Nobody is gonna take this character seriously, she’s a joke!"

Savage. Now can we please bring back Celebrity Death Match?

Watch the full Late Show clip below:

Feud airs Sundays at 10 PM ET on FX.

Who would win in an actual feud, Kellyanne Conway or Jessica Lange?
