Glenn Close Speaks About "Role" in Raunchy Videos Shot on Carrier

Actress Glenn Close is speaking out about appearing briefly in one of the raunchy comedy videos made by a senior officer on a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier a few years ago.

The award-winning actress said she appeared in a video clip after a "seemingly innocent request" made during a visit to the USS Enterprise more than four years ago.

In a statement issued Tuesday, Close called the use of her image deeply offensive and insulting.

The Navy permanently removed Capt. Owen Honors from command of the carrier Tuesday for the videos that included anti-gay slurs and sexual innuendo.

In 1995, Close appeared in a TV movie, "Serving in Silence," a true story about Army officer Margarethe Cammermeyer, who was discharged for admitting she was a lesbian.
