Lange, the bird smuggler

The characters in Jessica Lange’s children’s book, “It’s About a Little Bird,” are her granddaughters, she recently told “Ellen.”

“And it’s a true story. It’s about me telling them about the time I came back from Rome and smuggled a little canary in my pocket,” Lange told the talk show host.

“Did it live?” Ellen DeGeneres asked. “It did. It lived a long, long life after I brought it home,” Lange said.

It was another charming exchange between the acting great and the talk show host, who wanted to know about a tattoo on Lange’s wrist.

“It’s a Celtic knot,” explained Lange, who said she normally tries to keep the 20-something-old tattoo covered.

“I have one more [tattoo],” laughed Lange. “On my hip. And that one is really old. I got that one soon after I moved to Paris when I was 19 years old. That’s just a quarter-moon. A full moon would be fitting now.”

Lange said she is about to sign off from her four-year stint on “American Horror Story,” where she’s played roles that are getting her recognized on the street for the first time.

”Well, I don’t believe that,” said Ellen. “I refuse. You made it up for the talk show. We don’t buy it. You have to have a better lie.”

“I take it back,” said Lange.
