Glenn Close Biography

Actress Glenn Close is a beloved and acclaimed performer, creating indelible characters on stage, screen and television. A Tony, Emmy, SAG, and Golden Globe award winner, she began her career on stage and received her first Tony nomination for her Broadway appearance in Barnum in 1974. She is the recipient of three Tony Awards for her performances in The Real Thing, Death and the Maiden, and the musical, Sunset Boulevard. Close appeared in the London production of A Streetcar Named Desire at the Royal National Theatre, and in the fall of 2014, she returned to Broadway starring in Edward Albee's A Delicate Balance.

Close made her film debut in 1982’s The World According to Garp, receiving an Academy Award nomination for her performance. She went on to receive four additional Oscar nominations for performances in The Big Chill, The Natural, Fatal Attraction, and Dangerous Liaisons. Other popular films that she has appeared in include Jagged Edge, Reversal of Fortune, Air Force One, 101 Dalmatians and its sequel. Her performance in Fatal Attraction was ranked 36th on Premiere Magazine's list of the 100 greatest movie characters of all time. Currently, she can be seen in Marvel's The Guardians of the Galaxy.

For television, she won an Emmy Award for her TV film, Serving in Silence, plus a SAG Award and a Golden Globe for her performance in Showtime’s The Lion in Winter.

Close won another Golden Globe for her critically acclaimed FX drama series, Damages; she also won the 2009 Emmy Award for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series. The Los Angeles Times said, “Close's performance illuminates rather than outshines with its high wattage.” The show garnered over 50 nominations and 8 wins. The fifth and final season of Damages aired in July 2012.

In 2012 Close received an Oscar nomination and numerous other awards for her film, Albert Nobbs. She received her third Golden Globe for her role in The Wife in 2018.

In 2020, Close starred in Netflix's film adaptation of Hillbilly Elegy, alongside Amy Adams. While the film, which was released for streaming on Netflix on November 24, 2020, received mixed-to-negative critical reviews, Close received acclaim for her performance. For the role, she received the San Francisco International Film Festival's Award for Acting and another Academy Award, Golden Globe, and SAG Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress. Close also received a Razzie Award nomination for Worst Supporting Actress for Hillbilly Elegy, making her the third performer—after James Coco for Only When I Laugh and Amy Irving for Yentl—to receive both an Oscar nomination and a Razzie nomination for the same performance.

Also in 2020, Close co-starred with Mila Kunis in the drama Four Good Days, directed by Rodrigo García and presented at the Sundance Film Festival. It was announced that she would appear opposite Mahershala Ali in the Apple TV+ drama film Swan Song.

Close is a Trustee Emeritus of The Sundance Institute and a Trustee of The Wildlife Conservation Society. She has campaigned for many issues like gay marriage, women's rights, and mental health. Close is a founder and chairperson of BringChange2Mind, a US campaign to eradicate the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness.
