GLENN CLOSE TALKS CORONAVIRUS: From isolation at her home in Montana, Glenn Close talked to The Hollywood Reporter about her life during the coronavirus, solo with her dog Pip. Here’s a typical day: “I binged Ozark until 3:30 in the morning — I couldn't stop myself because I loved it — but normally I’m up earlier. In my bedroom, I have these blackout curtains that I can open on top to see the weather when I wake up. Then, I always make my bed because it makes me feel good to start off the day like that. I get dressed, though for a while there I was lounging around in my pajamas all day until I thought, ‘Hmm, I don’t know about this.’ Now, I get dressed, come down, let Pip out and give him his breakfast and make some for myself.” She added: “I'm an introvert by nature, so being alone has never been a challenge for me. I'm also lucky in a way to be alone. I’m thinking a lot about people who have young children or who live in apartments with little access to going outside. I’m also thinking of my hometown, New York, and how valiant everybody is there but also how hard it must be — and frightening.”

Tub told Deadline: “I am honored to be able to work on my favorite horror film of all time, The Others, and to bring this reimagining to the big screen for new audiences.
