Gender bender: Who’s this dapper chap strolling through the streets of Dublin in his finery?
It’s none other than leading lady Glenn Close.
The Fatal Attraction star has just started lensing The Singular Life Of Albert Nobbs, in which she plays a 19th century Englishwoman who dresses as a male butler in order to score a job in the tough economy.
Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Mia Wasikowska and Aaron Johnson also star in the movie, based on a novel by George Moore.
Speaking at a recent press conference, Close, who is also producing the film, says she has spent the past 15 years trying to get the project off the ground.
“The definition of a truly independent film is that they almost don’t get made… Ten years ago I was here hoping to make the film,” said Close, according to the Irish Central.
“I feel it is a really wonderful partnership and I’m very excited…Never in my wildest dreams did I think we would have this extraordinary group of talent both in front of and behind the camera.”
Well Glenn, you certainly look the part, love…I mean, mate.
