We don't blame her! We'd be furious, too!
Glenn Close has inadvertently become a part of the recent Navy scandal, involving Captain Owen Honors - the former second in command of the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise - and a series of leaked videos from 2006 and 2007 that feature him making homophobic slurs, yelling expletives, mimicking masturbation, and other lewd behavior, all oh which were created while on active duty overseas!
Apparently, the actress appears during a montage at the end of one of the video, wearing a Navy hat and holding a toucan!
Although it's unclear as to why it was recorded, she has come forward to reveal that it is, in fact, her - but she had nothing to do with the clips, and is FURIOUS that they incorporated her into one!
"I am distraught that my image has been used to perpetuate something that I abhor. 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."
It's pretty despicable that they took advantage of her presence on the ship and put her into something so crass without her consent!
Such an unbelievable shame!
We hope that proper actions will be taken to ensure that this kind of behavior is not tolerated anymore in that environment!
