Reporting from New York — Drew Barrymore, facing a window onto Central Park, held up a mirror. She took a long time reapplying her lipstick.

 

“Most of my best friends are gay and they all act like her, talk like her, dress like her at certain moments — they all quote her all the time,” she said, in her somewhat spooky way.

 

Gay men — well, not all of them, but many — do revere and constantly talk about Edith “Little Edie” Bouvier Beale, the crazy-fabulous younger half of the East Hampton mother and daughter recluse-team made famous by the 1975 Maysles brothers (and company) documentary “Grey Gardens.” The family had been flush in the Depression — but, as revealed in the documentary, once left to their own devices, Jacqueline Kennedy’s aunt and cousin rapidly became crazy cat ladies and a town scandal. The last signs of their class were the house itself and their starchy, grating half-mid-Atlantic, half- Long Island accents.    (Click on ‘Continue Reading’ for more)

A month shy of her 60th birthday, Minnesota-born actress Jessica Lange reportedly took a tumble at her cabin near the town where she was born and suffered a host of injuries.

 

According to the gossip website tmz.com, Lange grabbed for a railing that was not secure and fell, breaking her shoulder and collarbone and dislocating her arm. She also suffered cuts and needed stitches at a nearby hospital, the website said. TMZ did not report when the fall occurred.

 

In recent months, she and longtime mate Sam Shepard sold their home in Stillwater.

 

A representative for Lange told People magazine, “She will be completely fine and expects to be released from the hospital imminently.”

 

In a 2004 interview with AARP magazine, Lange said of her cabin, south of Cloquet: “”There is no place I’d rather be. The cabin is in the deep woods, on a hill overlooking a small lake.

 

“There is no sound except nature, which can be amazingly loud when you really listen. We can hear coyote, timber wolves, bear. I get up at 6:30 a.m., take my coffee, and sit on the dock and watch the hawks, eagles, loons, and blue heron.”
