Jane Lynch tired of tracksuits

Actress Jane Lynch enjoys being able to wear her own pyjama bottoms on her new show Angel from Hell.

Jane Lynch was sick of wearing tracksuits by the time Glee ended.

The 55-year-old actress played cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester in the hit show during its nearly six-year run. She quickly became synonymous with a sporty style, something which Jane was happy to leave behind when production ended.

"Not really - I got kind of sick of them," she grinned to when asked if she misses Sue's relaxed attire. "But the great thing was that I knew they would fit, I knew they’d look good and there were no mysteries about what I was going to wear."

Jane can currently be seen in TV series Angel from Hell playing Amy, a woman who believes herself to be sent from God. But she doesn't wear a typical angel costume, with the star explaining her outfit follows the same approach taken in Glee.

"I’m doing kind of the same thing in Angel from Hell," Jane added. "I have one outfit, which is kind of nice. I put it together with our wardrobe designer - it’s this army jacket that has the sleeves cut off and a T-shirt and my own pyjama bottoms."

Away from the camera, Jane prefers a more fashionable aesthetic. In a previous interview with O Magazine the blonde star explained how she dresses to suit her figure.

“Darts are always too high, and the knee is never where it’s supposed to be,” she explained. “If I find something that fits, it’s usually a designer’s mistake, and I can never get it again.”

And when it comes to footwear, you won't see Jane rocking high-heeled stilettos: “I know this sounds so lesbian,” the openly gay star added, “but I like a sturdy heel.”
