Jane Lynch

Jane Lynch is friends with her therapist.

The 53-year-old star who plays therapist Dr. Judith in her new film 'A.C.O.D' finds the practice of psychotherapy to resolve childhood issues or personal problems a fascinating social science.

Jane - who is openly a lesbian and a recovering alcoholic - has always been open about her reliance of therapy and insists she and her doctor share a close bond.

She said: "But I think I'm fascinated with therapy and I'm fascinated with my own therapist. I have a terrific therapist who I've seen over the years and I would say we're probably friends now. We've come to the point where we're friends ... She's a very interesting person."

Jane - whose three-year marriage to her wife, clinical psychologist Lara Embry, ended in July - thinks therapy can help actors improve their skills and make it easier for them to get into character.

She told "That kind of exploration that you do in therapy makes you more open and more creative and more empathetic.

"You're able to see a character from the point of view of the inside out, as opposed to, 'Oh, I'm playing a bad guy.' Let's get deep inside this person so we know what makes a sociopath tick. What in me is sociopathic? And we all have it."
