Glenn Close made a cameo in one of the controversial videos that US Navy Captain Owen Honors filmed and broadcast to the USS enterprise crew in 2006 and 2007. But the actress says the use of her image was “unathorized” and she is “distraught” over it.
Glenn has confirmed the image is of her in the video to the The Washington Post‘s Celebritology blog and that she is extremely offended by it.
“I am distraught that my image has been used to perpetuate something that I abhor,” Glenn said through her publicist Catherine Olim. “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 video shows Glenn wearing a Navy hat and posing with a parrot that is featured throughout the rest of the video.
In Admiral John C. Harvey Jr.’s announcement of Capt. Honors relief of duty he said his actions “call into question his character and completely undermines his credibility to serve effectively in command.”
Glenn’s unwanted cameo appears at 10:26 in the video below. **WARNING: OFFENSIVE CONTENT**
