Jessica Lange thinks it’s amazing people are comparing her looks to Caitlyn Jenner, who was known as Bruce until making his debut as a woman on Monday.

Formerly known as Bruce Jenner, the 65-year-old Olympic gold medalist made his public debut as a woman Monday on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine.

Twitter went wild with comparisons of Caitlyn’s looks, noting she resembles Hollywood legend Jessica.

And the 66-year-old former American Horror Story actress is thrilled by fans’ observations.

“Oh really?” she told The Daily Beast after being informed of the Twitter trend. “That’s so wonderful. Well now I’m going to have to look for that picture.”

However, Jessica made it clear she didn’t really understand what trending on Twitter actually means.

The iconic Big Fish thespian, who’s won two Oscars and has received 117 nominations in her career from various awards shows, simply doesn’t engage with social media.

“Trending on Twitter because Caitlyn Jenner on the cover—you see I don’t do any of this stuff, the Internet,” she noted. “So I have no clue when people use this terminology. I have to repeat it to understand.”

Meanwhile Caitlyn’s transgender story remains one of the biggest headlines of the year and it has even broken Twitter records.

Caitlyn Jenner sent out her first tweet on Monday and received 1 million followers on the micro-blogging site within just four hours of the message’s publication. President of the United States Barack Obama previously held the Guinness World Record for generating the most new followers in the least amount of time, but the politician’s milestone has been trumped, as Caitlyn now holds this title.
