The Five Best Lines In The Advocate's Jane Lynch Profile

Illustration for article titled The Five Best Lines In The Advocate's Jane Lynch Profile

The Advocate's interview with Jane Lynch is fantastic, and we recommend reading it in its entirety. But as a teaser, here are the five best parts…

The opening line, one of the best ledes we've ever read:

Nearly 30 years ago, Jane Lynch was a bitchy Cornell University student with a tragic perm and a habit of ending her day with a six-pack of Miller Lite.


Jane on marrying a woman with kids:

I'm maternal in that I'm very empathetic, but children I never got or understood. I've always been more of a dog person. So yes, motherhood has changed me.

On doing a love scene with Cybill Shepherd:

…We were both clothed because no one wants to see us middle-aged broads flopping around in bed. [Laughs] I had one love scene under my belt, and I'm a lesbian in actual life, so I'm sure she expected me to take the lead, which I did. She was absolutely wonderful and open to the challenge. We both had a good time.


On her style:

I love fashion, and I love seeing it on people, I have a hard time with myself, though. I'm hard to fit. I have a skinny neck and a little head and a big ass. It's hard to dress that. [Laughs]


On her struggle with alcohol:

Boone's Farm, that's a gateway drug. I think it's cheap. And it gets you drunk, and it's sweet, but boy, it makes you sick. I remember a friend walking home through the park in the snow leaving a trail of bright red vomit.

Jane Lynch is so effing funny. I feel like she is wasting her talent on Glee. Her role in Party Down was infinitely better.
