Personal Quote:

For me, acting was always a way to explore emotions - to dip into the well and really try to reach rock bottom down there. See more »

Trivia:

Had a fall at her home in Minnesota on March 17, 2009, breaking her collarbone and dislocating her arm. After an overnight stay in the hospital, she was released the next day. Soon afterwards (though unpublicized until December 2011), Lange broke up with her boyfriend of 27 years, Sam Shepard, leading to speculation that a domestic dispute had been the actual cause of her injuries.
