My Encounter With Glenn Close! I Was Shaking!

Back in the '80s, when I started my column, Glenn Close was a rising movie and theater star who cut an imposing figure.

She wasn't someone to tangle with.

But when I spotted her sitting at a benefit dinner I was covering, I gamely requested a quickie interview.

The publicist ran over to Glenn and put in the request, then came back to me and said, "Fine. But only innocent questions."

Huh?

I had no idea what that meant.

My questions have never committed a crime in their life!

They've all been declared "not guilty" by courts of law!

Well, most of them.

So I crawled over to Glenn with a mixture of anticipation and fear.

I was crackling with excitement to meet this incandescent star, but was desperate to not offend the woman since I make a point of keeping every deal I agree to.

"I bet you have no innocent questions," she said to me, with a twinkle.

She seemed only half-joking, if at all.

I was thrilled. It meant she'd read my work!

"Well," I responded. "Have you ever had sex with a dead animal?"

Kidding!

I didn't get up the nerve to go that Borscht Belt on her.

I simply asked her a boring question about the charity we were celebrating and she gave me an earnest answer.

And I left, thoroughly impressed with her control mechanisms.

It's the third Close vs. Streep match for the Oscar.  They lost to Cher in '87 and Jodie Foster in '88.

This is one scary bitch, and I mean that in a good way.  She's a super talent.  Seems like she can ensnare with her snooch and has a really big cock too.  That's talent!

I woudn't have been able to speak, knowing that, with "Fatal Attraction"/"Damages" lady...she can certainly do surgically precise verbal incisions...no anesthesia necessary.

I bet Meryl would have said the same "innocent questions" line with more of a twinkle and a better accent.
