Glenn Close Reveals She Has COVID and RSV Just as New “Knives Out” Begins Shooting


Tony and Emmy Award winner Glenn Close says she has COVID and RSV.

Unfortunately for the multiple Oscar winner, she’s shooting the new “Knives Out” movie! She was just two days into making the Rian Johnson movie “Wake Up, Dead Man” with Daniel Craig, Jeremy Renner, Josh Brolin, and Kerry Washington, and a cast of what seems like thousands.

Close says, “I was really hit hard.”

Get well, Glenn! But this is a reminder that COVID is still out there!
