Please do watch Glenn Close’s beautiful speech about mental illness at last week’s Variety lunch for Power of Women. Other speakers and honorees included Lena Dunham, Whoopi Goldberg, Rachel Weisz, and Kim West. But it was Glenn’s speech that really touches the heart. Variety filled midtown Cipriani and did a brilliant job– kudos to Michelle Sobriano, Claudia Eller et al. Rosie Perez and Emmy Rossum were among the guests, as well as Caroline Hirsch (Caroline’s Comedy Club, and Stand up for Heroes), “Selma” star Carmen Ejogo. I got to meet Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe of Uganda, who you can (and should) follow on Facebook.
