Oscar winner, cancer survivor, activist - is there anything Kathy Bates can't do? Ever since her breakout role as Annie Wilkes in Stephen King's Misery, she's been alternately freaking people out on camera and stealing their hearts. From Fried Green Tomatoes, to Dolores Claiborne, to Titanic, and more, she's been a fantastic character actress that eats up every role she's in.

She's also made quite a splash on TV, starring in series like Disjointed and, of course, American Horror Story. The latter introduced her to a whole new generation of fans who love her crazy characters from Hotel, Roanoke, Cult, and so on. As a horror fan herself, Bates seems to adore every role she gets from season to season, even going so far as to say “Ryan Murphy has resurrected [her] career.”
