Like 'The Wife,' Glenn Close says she's a late bloomer
LOS ANGELES - Reuters
Decades of suppressing her own talents and desires in support of her husband's career begin to unravel when he wins the Nobel Prize for literature and a biographer probes the couple's life.
Close's performance has won rave reviews, sparking talk of a potential seventh Oscar nomination next year.
Despite a 40-year career, three Emmy awards, three Tonys and six Oscar nominations, the star of "Fatal Attraction" and the TV drama "Damages" says she feels she is just beginning.
"I'm a very late bloomer. It took me a very long time to learn some basic things. That's why it's kind of wonderful and ironic for me to be at this point at my life and feel like it's just the beginning," she said.
Close launched her acting career in the theater in the 1970s and said she feels lucky to have found success in job she is so passionate about.
"I think I'm at a time in my life where I've finally accepted certain things about myself, and it's ok. The fact that I'm not a hugely social person that I'm very much in my head is okay," she said.
"I feel happier and calmer and more excited about life than I ever have."
