'Distraught' Glenn Close Calls Raunchy Navy Video 'Offensive'
Glenn Close is offended when finding out that her image is misused in a raunchy video made by Navy Captain Owen Honors who was eventually relieved of his service on aircraft carrier USS Enterprise on Tuesday, January 4. She released a statement to clarify that it used to be a "seemingly innocent request".
The video made by Honors was shot aboard the carrier in 2006 and 2007 while he was second in command. It contains several attempts at humor but it includes as well homophobic remarks, simulated masturbation and partial nudity. Close appears at the very end of the video with a stuffed parrot after a shot of condoms and lube.
"I am distraught that my image has been used to perpetuate something that I abhor," Close told Washington Post via publicist Catherine Olim. "The cynical, unauthorized use of my image in this video is deeply offensive and insulting, and was the result of a seemingly innocent request of me during a visit to the aircraft carrier over four years ago."
Close appeared in a TV movie titled "Serving in Silence" in 1995. It is a true story about an army officer who was discharged for admitting she was a lesbian.
