Glenn Close says she doesn't have the 'body or face' to do rom coms

Washington, Tue, 28 Feb 2012 ANI

Washington, Feb 28 (ANI): Glenn Close reckons that she will never star in a romantic comedy as she doesn't have either the "body or face" for them.


The 64-year-old actress, who portrays the character of a woman pretending to be a man during 19th century Ireland in new drama 'Albert Nobbs', admits she is unlikely ever to be a lead in such a film because she doesn't suit the look usually associated with them.


"I don't have the body or the face for romantic comedies, so I've never been offered those," Contactmusic quoted her as telling Portland Press Herald.


"The challenge is that a lot of people see you only as your last character, so you're constantly competing with whatever your last movie was," she said.


The legendary actress lost out on an Oscar for her performance in the movie to Meryl Streep on Sunday and admits she has never put so much work into one picture.


"I've never done this much in one film before. I bought the material, I put the team together, I found the money to finance it," she said.


"The obstacles were like those faced by any indie film that goes way outside of any formula - you've got to get people to understand the power of the story. Plus, it was tough for people to envision me as a butler!" she added. (ANI)
