  9. Nobody's offended by the headline? She is not a man. She is women who likes to dress in clothes usually identified with men. Big difference.

  10. I always thought she looked like a man, even when she wasn't dressed up as one. She has a hard face. And her name IS Glenn after all.

  11. Well, it wouldn't be the first time she dressed as a man in film... I can think of at least one other- "Hook".

    (If you can't picture where she was in that movie, she was the pirate that got stuffed into the "Boo Box" with the scorpions).

  13. What happened to her HAIRLINE!?

  14. It's clearly a labor of love she long struggled to get made. The photo looks great and I hope the film is too.

    I also hope that Orlando Bloom and Amanda Seyfried quitting isn't a sign of trouble--maybe only scheduling delays?--but Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Mia Wasikowska are fine replacements.

  18. Love Glenn Close!! She's a great actress and I agree with Joel V: give her an Oscar dammit!

  19. She's so awesome. Gifted and talented in so many ways. Saw her in Sunset Blvd. on Broadway and she was amazing. She's been a good friend to gay people as well.

  20. It's Liam Neeson!!! Grab your lightsabers.

  21. Well, there you have it. As men get older, they start to look sophisticated and some even stay attractive. Women, it seems, that as they get older (over 50) they start to look like men.
