Jane Lynch’s career is at its peak thanks to her acclaimed work as manipulative (but at times, thoughtful) cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester on Glee. After years of doing scene stealing work on projects like Two and a Half Men and Role Models, Lynch explains one reason for her overwhelming (and relatively newfound) success.

“I don’t have that burning ambition anymore,” says Lynch. “It’s funny, once I let go of (such questions as)  ‘is the parade going to pass me by’ or ‘when am I going to get mine’ and ‘will I ever find love,’ ‘will I ever live in a nice house,’ ‘will I ever drive a nice car’ –  it all happened.  But my internal shift happened first, and I don’t think that happens for everybody.  There’s a lot of miserable people out there who have everything they think they want.  Mine came after I let go of the steering wheel, if I could use another metaphor…I have much more equanimity than I had five years ago.”
