— -- After Caitlyn Jenner's first image hit the Internet Monday, people on social media started comparing the look of the person formerly known as Bruce Jenner to actress Jessica Lange.

In fact, Lange, 66, was trending on Twitter Monday, so during an interview with The Daily Beast, the Oscar winner addressed the issue.

Her first reaction when told she was "trending" was, "What does that mean?"

She laughed and reportedly said, "You have to explain what that means to me. ... I don’t do any of this stuff, the Internet. So I have no clue when people use this terminology. I have to repeat it to understand."

After The Daily Beast explained it to her, Lange said of Jenner's photo on the cover of Vanity Fair, "That’s so wonderful. Well now, I’m going to have to look for that picture."

"That’s an interesting bit of information," she added.

The Daily Beast was clear that this wasn't an official statement from the "American Horror Story" star, just the back-and-forth that happened when they told her about Caitlyn Jenner, 65.
