The “crazy cat lady” trope can be traced back to “Grey Gardens” and “A Clockwork Orange”
You know the type. Lonely old woman, cluttered household, sheltered from society, and her only friends in the world are her numerous cats roaming around her house. It's the "crazy cat lady." Weirdly, it's not a pop culture trope for men, even though they're often equally obsessed with cats as women. Just look at the James Bond villain Blofeld, Don Corleone or Robert De Niro in "Meet the Parents." Still, the crazy cat lady stereotype persists, often with hilarious results. And because June is National Adopt-a-Cat Month, TheWrap decided to look at some of the most famous crazy cat ladies in movies and TV. It's about to get furry.
