Caitlyn Jenner made her public debut on Monday on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s July issue, and as soon as people celebrated the former Olympian’s first photos as a woman, some noted that she bore a resemblance to actress Jessica Lange.

Lange, when asked what she thought of the comparison, was flattered, though she had yet to see the spread. “That’s so wonderful,” she told The Daily Beast. “Well now I’m going to have to look for that picture.”

After the Annie Leibovitz-shot photos were released, they quickly caused Jenner — and subsequently, Lange — to trend on Twitter. The American Horror Story actress told The Daily Beast she had no idea what “trending,” but was supportive nonetheless.

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