Jessica Lange Writing Children’s Book, Screen legend Jessica Lange says the secret to her longevity in Hollywood is simply trusting her instincts.
“As you can tell from looking at my career, there was no plan!” the 64-year-old said with a hearty laugh. “It’s never setting out with a goal in mind or project or whatever. It’s what kind of captures my imagination in the moment.”
Lange’s gut feeling recently led her to a new path as a children’s book author. “It’s About a Little Bird” follows two young sisters who discover an antique birdcage at their grandmothers’ farm.
“It felt natural and organic and simple and kind of charmed,” Lange said of creating the picture book based on her real-life experiences and featuring photographs she took and tinted by hand.
