When Caitlyn Jenner made her debut on the cover of Vanity Fair yesterday, the Internet lost its collective shit, and I have to say, I was really touched at how overwhelmingly positive the reaction from people – both her fellow celebrities and just random social media users – actually was. It was unexpected, but gives me hope that we’re actually moving forward as a society, even in the tiniest bit.
Another thing that was noticed about Caitlyn’s cover picture is just how much she looks like Jessica Lange. I have to say, looking at the photos side by side, I can totally see it! And what’s awesome is that Lange herself has responded to the comparison and she loves it!
From The Daily Beast:
We gave a quick tutorial on what it means to be trending, and explained that it was because so many people thought Jenner’s Vanity Fair cover looked like her. We also clarified that this was a good comparison, as the overwhelming response is how beautiful Jenner looks on the cover.
“Oh really?” she said. “That’s so wonderful. Well now I’m going to have to look for that picture.”
She giggled as she tried to process what all of this trending talk meant. “Trending on Twitter because Caitlyn Jenner on the cover—you see I don’t do any of this stuff, the Internet,” she said. “So I have no clue when people use this terminology. I have to repeat it to understand.”
We all knew we loved Jessica Lange already, right? I feel like this made her even more awesome, if that was actually possible.
