Actress Glenn Close is retiring from Hollwood-because she says she doesn't like all the glitz and glamour. The 'Fatal Attraction' star says since 9/11 her priorities have changed and made her realize what is important in life.
'I prefer smaller films now and I want to spend time with people I love. Time is the most precious thing we have. I don't really like the diamonds and glitter of show business.'
Glenn, 58, says she felt uncomfortable attending star studded bashes like the Oscars because of the pressure to look good.
She told the UK Express newspaper, 'The times I was at the Oscars, I was wearing borrowed diamonds. I thought it was so gaudy. I don't think Hollywood knows what to do with me. Hollywood is all about image.

"I'm unemployable. The pictures haven't gotten smaller -- but the ones they offer to me sure have. I know when I'm not wanted, so I'll just disappear for a few decades. Then I'll die."
Awww, that's a shame. Why is it that these actors have to 'announce' they are retiring? Does anyone really care?
What is she talking about ? She just took a new role on "The Shield " ?
LOL!! Buh bye Glenn, no big loss here, buh bye!
That pretty well somes it up thanks.
It was all downhill from there.
Despite the fact that it was just about the worst baseball movie ever made and totally rejected Malamud's book.
Long in the tooth and unable to meet the standards for looks, Glenn is out of here. Another body thrown away in the Hollywood liberal world.
Maybe she can spinoff "Fat Actress" into "Unemployable Actress".
Wow! Imagine what she'll look like AFTER she stops giving in the "the pressure to look good!" I'm picturing Jabba the Hut!
Maybe that's what she's referring to as a "smaller film."
Translation: "Because there isn't enough hairspray and makeup in the world for her to ever get another starring role. ;)
Kim Basinger was great in that picture too.
Translation: "Now that I've made my millions and am 58 and losing my looks and my agent's phone doesn't ring much anymore, I'll retire and make it sound like a principled stand (rejecting the "glamour and glitz") rather than a concession to the inevitable."
