Fatal Attraction Reunion! Glenn Close and Michael Douglas Present Together at 2019 SAG Awards
No bunnies were harmed in the making of this Fatal Attraction reunion.
The duo famously starred together in the iconic 1987 blockbuster Fatal Attraction, where they played two lovers embroiled in a twisted affair.
“Thirty-two years since Fatal Attraction and 25 since these awards began. We experienced many changes in our craft and in our industry and how we relate to each other and our world,” Douglas, 74, said.
They last publicly were seen together backstage at the Broadway revival of Sunset Boulevard in 2017, when Close was playing the lead role of Norma Desmond.
While Fatal Attraction premiered nearly three decades ago, Douglas and Close have remained pals over the years.
“Glenn and I did a little movie in [the 1980s] which stood a lot of people on their heads, called Fatal Attraction,” Douglas said at the 2016 AARP Awards luncheon. “It was a brave film, it’s part of the memory of those films that keeps us all together and our friendships [thriving].”
Close, 71, received an Academy Award nomination for best actress for her iconic turn, but she controversially lost out to Cher for her performance in Moonstruck.
Close is nominated in the female actor in a leading role category up against Lady Gaga for A Star Is Born, Olivia Colman for The Favourite, Emily Blunt for Mary Poppins Returns and Melissa McCarthy for Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Meanwhile, Douglas is nominated for outstanding performance by a male actor in a comedy series and outstanding performance by an ensemble in a comedy series.
The 25th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards was broadcast live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on TNT and TBS.
