Glenn Close was recently interview by Entertainment Weekly where she talked about her Golden Globe noms for her role in “The Wife”. Glenn has been long-time friends with Lady Gaga’s mother, Cynthia.
She says that her and Cynthia might break into another apartment as a celebration if she wins an award: “Oh my God, that was incredible. That was such a New York moment,” Close lightheartedly recalls to EW of the time she and longtime friend Cynthia Germanotta — mama to Mother Monster — charmed their way into a stranger’s apartment after a casual lunch in Manhattan.
She plans to congratulate Lady Gaga if she wins a Golden Globe Award: “I’m going to reach [out to her to say congratulations]. Right now, I get to Stefani through Cynthia. I’m thrilled for her and I know she wanted to become an actress before she became a singer, so she’s fulfilling her initial passion that she has. It’s very cool. I can’t get behind the idea that there are winners and losers…. I sat next to Lady Gaga at the Hollywood Reporter roundtable the other day, and she’s such a good lady. She’s so deeply talented, as are the other ladies around that table.”
However, Glenn doesn’t believe that there are losers, everyone is a winner to her: “For me, the great honour is to be picked out of a crowd as one of five in this incredibly competitive profession we’re in… You can’t compare my performance with Gaga’s or Melissa [McCarthy]’s or Nicole [Kidman’s]’s; You can’t. I can understand why there have to be winners and losers, but I don’t buy into it.”
