Jane Lynch Can Relate to Sue Sylvester Because She Used to Be a Bully (VIDEO)

'Glee' star Jane Lynch, fresh off her zinger-filled performance as the host of the Emmys, sat down for an interview with 'Today,' (9AM ET on NBC), where she gave some insight into how she's able to play McKinnley High cheer coach Sue Sylvester so convincingly. In addition to having phenomenal comedic timing and delivery, Lynch is also able to draw on her own personal experience from a time in her life when she was a bit of a bully.

"I love Sue Sylvester because she says all of those thing that are in the back of our head that we would never entertain saying. And she says all of them," Lynch said, explaining Sylvester's signature appeal.

And then Lynch explained something about her past that she's not too proud of, but nonetheless helps her channel Sue's energy. There was a period in her life when she was a bit of a bully. "I had this thing where I was taking everyone else's inventory. And I didn't hold back, and it was Psychology 101, it was the stuff I felt inside ... and I completely projected it onto other people. And I didn't get a lot of love for that, and what I really wanted was a lot of love."

What's the big fuss? I don't know anyone who watches " Glee " , much less know or cares who Jane Lynch is> It's just another feeble attempt at social justice disguised as entertainment.
