Jane Lynch: Entertainer of the year

How ''Glee'''s resident mean queen became a pop culture icon

No. 12 - The Glee whiz

Glee’s Sue Sylvester would tell Jane Lynch to suck it up and not be so grateful for her scene-stealing role on the Fox hit. But the 49-year-old actress doesn’t have Sue’s stone-cold demeanor (or her colors-of-the-rainbow tracksuit collection). ”It’s been a slow reckoning that this is pretty awesome,” says Lynch of her growing fame. ”But it also means you can’t make a fool of yourself in public. No more streaking. Basically now I have to behave myself.”


Sue Sylvester quotes

”All I want is just one day a year where I’m not visually assaulted by uglies and fatties.”

”I don’t trust a man with curly hair. I can’t help picturing small birds leaving sulfurous eggs in there, and I find it disgusting.”

”I’m going to ask you to smell your armpits. That’s the smell of failure, and it’s stinking up my office.”

”You think this is hard? Try auditioning for Baywatch and being told that they’re going in another direction. That was hard.”

”I’ve always thought the desire to procreate showed deep personal weakness.”
