Glenn Close is looking back on her role in Air Force One.
During a new interview with Vanity Fair, the 73-year-old actress revealed there was one scene written for her character Vice President Kathryn Bennett in the 1997 political action thriller that she refused to do.
In the movie, President James Marshall (Harrison Ford), his family, and some staff are aboard Air Force One when the plane is taken over by terrorists. Glenn‘s character is in Washington, D.C. overseeing the situation.
Glenn revealed that at one point, her character was supposed to start crying while sitting down with staff, but she refused to do it because she didn’t want Bennett to appear weak.
“One thing I remember, they had a scene around that table where she broke down crying,” Glenn explained. “And I said, ‘I will not do that. I don’t think that would happen. Not my vice president. My vice president would not break down into tears. She would step up to the challenge.’ So they changed it.”
Just recently, Glenn admitted that she was very surprised when this actress won an Oscar.
