Glenn Close Looks Great as a Man...But Why?

Take a really close (haha) look at this picture. Did you guess who it was before you even read the title and knew? It’s kind of scary what makeup can do to a person, isn’t it? Glenn Close is dressing like a man. On purpose! Has Glenn crossed over to the other side and become a transvestite?

Nope, Glenn is only doing her job. She has taken on playing a man’s role in the movie Albert Nobbs.
