From comedy to drama, no matter what role actress Glenn Close embraces she has the ability to make us believe, but it's her work off camera that truly inspires. As an advocate for mental health, Glenn works closely with New York’s Fountain House, a group that’s helped more than 16,000 men and women who are recovering from mental illness to find jobs, locate housing and obtain an education. Her passion for helping others is not limited only to people—Glenn is also a tremendous supporter of animal rescue.
My Generation gets up close and personal with this amazing woman who uses her name and her fame to make a difference.
