She's a wonderful actress I just wished this season of American Horror stories wasn't so HORRIBLE. The plot is strange and dreary.

Ms. Bates - I have been told time and time again that I look just like the actress who played in misery....they always pick that character!! But anyone watching a Kathy Bates movie will eventually look over at me and say...you look just like her - I think it is the best compliment I have received - and as many times as I have heard it - it must be true!!!

BillyJul 11, 2010

Ms. Bates, I just wanted to say how much I enjoy your work and the magic you have put in to your craft. I would also like to say you are one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood today. When you smile your whole face lights up and you carry yourself with such grace and poise that one can`t help but be captivated. I say this with all due respect not just as a fan but more of an admirer. Ken Baker
