Glenn Close - Glenn Close Says Navy Movie Was Offensive And Insulting

GLENN CLOSE, the EMMY AWARD winning American actress who appears in a 'raunchy' video made by a fired Navy captain, says the clip is "deeply offensive and insulting", reports the New York Daily News. Captain Owen Honours was relieved of his duties on board the aircraft carrier Enterprise yesterday (4th January 2010) after producing the video in an attempt to entertain the crew.
The clip, which contains homophobic slurs, sexual explicitness and scenes of woman showering together, also features the five-time OSCAR nominated Close who sits behind a desk wearing a 'USS Enterprise Hat'. The video was made and broadcast between 2006 and 2007 when Honors was the second in command on the ship, however, Close's appearance is still unexplained. In a statement, the actress said, "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".
The statement offered little detail as to how Close came to appear in the film, but the Navy has in the past organised visits from journalists, business leaders, and dignitaries and Close is married to DAVID E. SHAW who has reportedly invested in the technology sector.
