Jessica Lange, awards-upon-awards winning actor and the celebrity most likely to be found at Duluth's Whole Foods Co-Op, gives her home region a shout-out in an interview that was posted Thursday on Rolling Stone magazine's website.

Asked about her favorite city, the Cloquet native gives mentions to Paris, New Orleans:

"And Duluth, Minnesota, because it's home," she said in the interview with David Fear, reportedly laughing after she added, "Shout-out to Duluth."

Lange has just published "Highway 61," a collection of photographs chronicling six years of road-side people and scenes along the route. She's also featured in "The Politician," a new Netflix Original Series by Ryan Murphy.

Fear also asked Lange to talk about the "most Minnesota thing" about her.


"I have a real connection to the natural world," she said, "which feels like a very Minnesota thing to me. For the past 35 years, I've had a cabin in the North Woods and there's something so healing about that place."

She went on to quote artist Juan Rulfo: "There you'll find the place I love most in the world. The place where I grew thin from dreaming."

"That's Minnesota to me," she said.
