Oscar winner Jessica Lange was taken by surprise when she was honoured by New York City's Film Society Of Lincoln Center on Monday (17APR06) night, when her celebrity pals took to the stage to talk about her short-comings. The TOOTSIE actress was paid the tribute by the renowned cinematic body in recognition of her contribution to film and television. MISERY actress Kathy Bates took the stage with Joan Allen to make fun of Lange's perceived lack of a sense of humour, with Allen saying, "Remember that time in the make-up room (on BONNEVILLE) when she told us not to buy from Exxon because their profits were too high. She's a laugh riot!" Scottish actor Alan Cumming recalled starring naked alongside Lange, who turns 57 tomorrow (20APR06), in TITUS. He said to her, "I don't know what you're talking about Jessica, but you've got fantastic tits." To which she replied, "Please, if your hand weren't there that thing would be halfway round my back."
