Why did it take so long for Jessica Lange to mention the fact that she and her longtime companion Sam Shepard were no longer together? The couple hooked up in 1982 and have two grown children, Hannah, 25, and Samuel, 24, – they were rumored to have an off and on relationship and finally called it quits a couple of years ago. Jessica, 62, is starring on the FX series American Horror Story and she’s nominated for a Golden Globe. Her friends pushed her to go public with the split because Jessica would like to meet someone and her friends pointed out that “no one will ask you out if they think your are still with Sam.” So Jessica made the announcement, hoping that someone will finally ask her for a date!

    at this age it’s not something to be proud of.

    Gerard/”forrest” (and I HATE that you defile a great movie by stealing the title for your fake moniker, you are HIGHLY UNworthy!) but just WHAT the hell do you mean by your yet again (and still ANOTHER) moronic comment?

    To WHAT do you refer to when you use the word “it’s”? WHAT’S not something “to be proud of”???? GEEZ, make some bloody sense already, will ya?!?! My friggin head is going to explode some day tryin to figure out what the hell your attempts at communication mean!

    By the way, a TERRIFIC show, but she is HORRIFIC looking (apparently on purpose) in it. Scares the holy shit out of ME, that’s for sure! If this is a combo of acting and make-up, cudos to all! And I will never forget her in “Blue Sky” as the oversexed wife of the then-hunky (to me, okay?!) Tommy Lee Jones. He looked HOT in his uniform (Air Force?) and I even wrote a very naughty poem Mrs. Patrick Campbell would get all mussy over, about how I wanted a military man with a slow hand…etc…etc…etc…(censored…) soooo wish I could share it with y’all, ‘cept those two assholes Gerard and strom!

    Amazing deragatory comments about another poster by a ranting idiot. Take the long meaningless and much less than informative posts and go back to your hiding place.

    Yiddish Jessica has gotten a bit over the hill looking.

    Amazing fact: Measurements: 34B-22-34 (modeling in Paris in 1973), 36C-24 1/2-35 (in 1990), (Source: Celebrity Sleuth magazine. Somone bought some her some silicone.

    I can’t stand this woman. She made some really awful comments about this country and I thought she had some nerve. Sure, she’s entitled to her opinion, but if you’re going to slam the country you live in with one hand, then don’t accept money for your “acting” jobs with the other. She makes me sick.

    Another woman who destroyed her face with plastic surgery, she looks very odd now

    Strom, I’m not saying there’s no silicone, but between 1973 and 1990 her hips and waist also grew. Breasts can get larger as we age and as we gain weight. eg. age 17: 33A-24-34….age 50: 36C-29-39

    Reta: lmao about what you said regarding captain america, gerard vandenberg, forrest gump.

    She is absolutely fabulous on this show which is beyond creepy. If she’s had plastic surgery, I think it’s been well done, and physically she looks quite fit.

    I always loved Sam Shepherd, and as for going public, isn’t it really up to them. Amazingly low key, and lengthy, relationship, for Hollywood (or Hollyweird as some of our posters call it).

    Sorry to hear that they’ve split. I love how wicked she is on AHS!! I think she has aged well…unlike those who’ve had so much work done they look like relatives of Mr. Limpet.

    FX series American Horror Story is my favorite show. Love the cast. Jessica Lange is still beautiful and what an actress. Dam, I love her character. Too cool.

    Sam Shepard is just an intelligent and simmering sexy (and arrogant) man. Two glasses of wine and point me in his direction and I would be drunkenly chasing him all over the place.

    Strom, seriously dude, you really need to make a madmad dash into the nearest emergency clinic and have then place your melon in a sterile vice and grank slowly until hunks spew from your ears and eyes and top of your head, and of course, your nasty fucking racist mouth. Merry crapfest to you.

    Reta makes these foolish deragatory comments about posters but has never learned that: It’s not about posters and her blather adds nothing to the thread and no one cares about her life or lack of it.

    I recall reading many years ago that Lange said “Sam will never leave me.” What happened?

    And wasn’t there an interview with Sam years ago that mentioned he was in the town diner and had lots of female fans?

Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
