Jessica Lange to retire from acting

Jessica Lange is set to retire from acting.

The Oscar and Emmy Award-winning actress has announced she will leave her glittering career behind after four decades and numerous accolades to pursue a quieter life.

She told the Los Angeles Times newspaper: "I am coming to the end of acting. I have a list: another stage production, maybe one or two more movies, one more season of 'American Horror Story', and then that is it for me. Because I think that's enough. I want to go out with a bang ... or should I say, a scare?"

The 64-year-old star has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity as the leading lady on anthology show 'American Horror Story' - created by 'Glee' mastermind Ryan Murphy - in which she plays a new character each season.

Jessica earned an Emmy Award for her role as Constance Langdon in the first season and a further nomination for her role as Sister Jude Martin in the second run, subtitled 'Asylum'.

The actress - who appears as powerful witch Fiona Goode in the new season, 'American Horror Story: Coven' - plans to bow out of the hit show after a fourth year, but she credits the spooky drama for "re-energizing" her career.

She added: "It re-energized me; it re-energized my career. There's no shame in recognizing that. It's exposed me to a whole new generation, which is a little strange. I'm not used to young people thinking I'm cool."

Jessica has two Academy Awards for Best Actress to her name - for 1982's 'Tootsie' and 1994's 'Blue Sky' - as well as five Golden Globe wins.
