Finally! Ever since those pictures came out of Jessica Lange’s Shirley MacLaine in My Geisha-looking ass as Joan Crawford, I’ve been waiting and waiting for the paparazzi to come through with pictures of Susan Sarandon as Bette Davis and today they did. Jessica and Susan shot scenes in Los Angeles yesterday for Feud, Ryan Murphy’s newest FX anthology series about the bitch battle royale that Joan and Bette got into while shooting Whatever Happened To Baby Jane? The paps caught Susan walking from her trailer to the set as an assistant with an umbrella protected her immaculate Bette Davis brows from melting in the sun.
I don’t know the context for that AliExpress wig, but I do know that Bette Davis’ hair didn’t look like that in the early 1960s. Like Jessica as Joan, I don’t really see Bette Davis in those pictures. But I do see my abuelita as Rizzo in a senior center production of Grease. But who cares if Jessica as Joan looks more like a white woman as an Asian woman and Susan as Bette looks more like a Latina as Rizzo, I’m still going to watch this like it’s a porn starring Idris Elba and Alexander Skarsgard.
