JOAN CRAWFORD AND BETTE DAVIS WOULD HAVE LOVED RYAN MURPHY
Ryan Murphy has already successfully filmed six out of eight episodes of FX’s “Feud” and he’s made SURE that not a single photo of Jessica Lange or Susan Sarandon in character has leaked out. We hear that Jessica in makeup is a dead ringer for her character Joan Crawford, and Susan already has those Bette Davis eyes! The story celebrates the two stars’ rivalry, and takes place at a dinner at gossip columnist Hedda Hopper’s (played by Judy Davis) house right before the two stars were set to film “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?” Two women over 50 starring in a movie would never happen today and the plot examines the desperation that mature women in Hollywood suffered then and now. We hear that Jessica Lange and Judy Davis have become fast friends on and off the set. Thanks heavens for TV, or these women wouldn’t be working!
