Like any parent, Glenn Close had a difficult time seeing herdaughter Annie Maude, 19, off to college last year. So difficult it wasthat Glenn draws upon that milestone moment whenever she has a cryingscene to shoot. Annie, on the other hand, was more than ready to getout on her own, a fact her mom loves.

Glenn and Annie have always shared a tight bond as Glenn raised Annieas a single parent since she was 2 years old (dad is ex John Starke).Because of that, the Damages star has always been picky with her roles,never wanting to be away from Annie for too long a period of time,especially during her teenage years. Glenn, 60, famously declined to renew her contract on the L.A.-based The Shield for a second season two years ago becauseshe wanted to be around for Annie’s senior year of high school in NewYork.
