Glenn Close Wears Her Movie Costumes

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrity Gossip,

Glenn CloseGlenn Close keeps her outfits from her TV and film roles.

The 65-year-old actress "hates" shopping and doesn't buy many clothes for herself, so she likes to wear the costumes donned by her screen alter-egos. "I really hate shopping. Maybe a handbag. I don't spend a lot of money on myself. I'm very lucky I can wear some of the costumes from the Patty Hughes character in the series Damages," she admitted.

Glenn has enjoyed a career which has spanned four decades, but she believes social networking website Twitter has had a huge impact on the film industry. The screen icon thinks micro-blogging site has made it harder to get certain types of movies commissioned, meaning independent films face more "challenges" than ever before.

"Studios make their money with Spider-Man and Transformers. The big movies make the money and they can't afford to make the smaller movies because of things such as marketing costs. There will always be independent films and there are the film festivals that are important venues for those movies but it's never going to be easy. It's challenging and I know there's an audience for independent films - but they're not in the 18 to 25 demographic. There are so many different ways to watch films now. If you don't have a movie that's Tweetable in the first five minutes you're told you've got a problem. People are always fascinated by stories. The challenge is there are a lot of things competing for people's attention against films."
