For some reason, people tend to take the best actors and actresses for granted, and Glenn Close is certainly one of them.
She has played a variety of roles in her career and has taken many neglected women character roles.
With her starting from movies such as Fatal Attraction and then getting into some deeper roles, we must wonder what her net worth is now when she’s 71 years old.
The stage enabled her to connect with people much better
Many celebrities started their acting careers on the stage before discovering the big screen, but Glenn stayed there longer than the others. This is crucial for understanding the character’s depth and for making contact with the audience.
She wanted to become an actress when her strict family joined the Moral Re-Armament movement in the 1950s. When she left the cult, she was already working as an actress on stage for seven years.
Cooperation with Robin Williams in her first film
In the year 1982, she appeared in her first movie, in which she played a strong and independent woman who happens to leave her kid out of wedlock.
She played Robin William’s mother dramatically in a satire The World According to Garp. She earned an Academy Award nomination for her performance. She was discovered for Garp by the director George Roy Hill while still working on the New York stage. A year later she won Emmy and Tony awards.
In her 37 years of being on the big screen, Glenn has played many unique female characters. She also did many TV and stage performances, with repressed and depressed Norma Desmond being the audience’s favorite. She played that character in the musical Sunset Boulevard.
Despite winning Golden Globes and many other awards, she hasn’t won the Oscars yet. However, we bet that she will. Then she is going to be appreciated more.
Could Close double her net worth?
According to official sources, Glenn’s net worth is around 50 million. Even though it is a massive amount of many, actresses of her caliber should be worth much more. After 45 years of hard work, we hope she’ll win the Oscars and raise the net worth to $100 million by 2020.
