    Default Jessica Lange

    What type is Jessica Lange?




    an interview
    excerpts:

    "How dressed-down she is, how ordinary, and yet how oddly appealing; and what a remarkable bundle of paradoxes. She's a reluctant star, a shy siren, a maternal bohemian, a sensual ice-maiden of Polish and Finnish descent, a political and metropolitan sophisticate rooted in the woods and farmlands of northern Minnesota. ...

    Lange is an enigma, an actor who teases with her mixture of seriousness and sexual flippancy. Her role in the great Williams play is similarly elusive: dominant, dependent, bizarre, contained. Is that Jessica Lange? Will she come alive again on stage? "It's you out there, and that's it. You are much more responsible every night than you are on a film set. You can't say, 'Oh, you should have seen what I did!' That's why I love the stage."

    another - brief - interview
    excerpt

    "... Jessica said, “I consider myself a sad person.” She said this with a smile on her face and added that she also felt much happiness and joy in her life, but that a big part of her basic nature included feeling sad a lot of the time and that she accepted this truth about herself. Wow. For some reason that has always stayed with me and I think about it all the time. I remember being struck by the unabashed freedom in this point of view. You mean, we don’t have to be happy every minute of the day? It's not a school assignment that we'll get in trouble for if we don't do it really well? Sadly, being happy to me often feels like an obligation, and I go through so much guilt when I’m coming from other places which is a lot of the time. And then, if I even let it slip to the world that I’m not feeling deliriously happy at that second (not that I’m ever really fooling anybody when I’m not), I have to quickly add all the asterisks about how I really AM happy but I’m just in a weird space and I’m so sorry so just give me a moment and I’ll try to get back to happy…wait, it’s not working, what’s wrong with me…no, I promise I’ll be happy in a minute, hold on…yes, I realize how lucky I am and how much I have to be thankful for and that’s why I know I really am happy, damn it, so just give me a second here ..."


    another interview
    excerpts:

    "Now, like Fonda and Streisand, she's the dealmaker. And they are her deals she makes. But Lange is not some snappy tyrant. She just doesn't' play by Rodeo Drive rules. That, she finds, diverts the uninteresting traffic. Movies like 'Losing Isaiah' are a choice made through many years of playing the Hollywood game. ' In a sense I think I was lucky because some people take off -- they're flying -- and then something hits them in midcareer. Suddenly, the bottom falls out. I got over all this disappointment and rejection and self-doubt and all of those things that were imposed on me for tose first couple of years. It was great for now I know none of that will ever affect me again -- or as strongly as it did.' ...

    Lange, soft spoken, direct as black-cofee-no-sugar-but-I-would-like-the doughnut, possibly tries more than most to compensate. We've all forgotten the big ape. She hasn't. She won't.

    'The hardest thing is the kids. It just kills me. The other stuff isn't hard -- working long hours, doing the whole emotional thing. But being away from the kids gets worse rather than better. The thing is you get seduced by a great part. I've always felt that each one comes at a particular time in your life to giver you the means to explore areas that are important to delve into. I do think there is some grander order so you have to be careful what you say no to. But I can look back from when I really considered myself an actress -- from "Postman" -- and I never felt like I was wasting time playing any of these roles.

    'If I didn't have children I'd be a much better actress. I wouldn't be so distracted. I could pour 100 percent of my energies into it, to promote the investigation which acting is. But I can't do that so I have to pick and choose really deliberately. I must say there has been a lot of suffering along the way with misjudgments. But I've got the children, work I enjoy and the enchanted land.' "

    OK. Thank you for your input so far!

    Any other guesses, anyone?

    i think it's ironic that she played frances farmer in frances, who could be SLI.

    I thought INTp at first, but it's not likely. She is very Ni-Negativist anyway.

    How VERY interesting.

    The first time I ever attempted to v.i. her, I came to the conclusion of INTp. But then hesitated ...

    I do see some ENFj. But that doesn't mean she's ENFj.

    Can you see any hints of ISFp in her? Or ESTj?

    I find her very attractive for some reason.

    isn't it funny how if you're talking about a person, eventually a guy will say "i'd do her" or not?
    Not just UDP, nor am i condemning this, it's just funny.

    I know. It's hilarious.



    Nevertheless, some scraps of valuable input may be ascertained this way.

    I particularly said it to differentiate between a lot of ISTps who I have been agreeing with lately, and vice versa.

    In regard to what you said I agree however. It is my understanding that the simple truth is all people make that decision instantaneously based on their concept of attractiveness and so on, the customary first impression judgment and categorization. It is what it is, though: a superficial judgment, though of course with undeniable implications
