Seemingly born atop the Hollywood A-list, actress Glenn Close established herself as one of the finest performers of her generation - or any other, for that matter - with her first film, "The World According to Garp" (1982), for which she earned the first of several Oscar nominations. For the rest of the 1980s, Close quickly became a top leading lady who eventually achieved infamy with her portrayal of a psychotic woman avenging a lost affair in one of the decade's most notorious movies, "Fatal Attraction" (1987). Unlike most film stars, however, Close was more than happy to oscillate from the big screen to television to Broadway; often with even more critical and award success. She played Queen Gertrude to Mel Gibson's "Hamlet" (1990) and voiced Cruella de Vil in the animated classic, "101 Dalmatians" (1996). Close earned critical acclaim as well as Tony Awards for her work on Broadway in "Death and the Maiden" (1992) and the musical "Sunset Boulevard" (1994). Following quality turns in "Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her" (2000) and "Nine Lives" (2005), Close was Emmy-nominated for her portrayal of Capt. Monica Rawling on season four of "The Shield" (FX, 2002-08). But it was her performances as high-stakes litigator Patty Hewes on "Damages" (FX/Audience Network, 2007-2012) that proved to be her most significant small screen role. Regardless of the medium, Close remained one of Hollywood's premier actresses.

Esther Gold says: [thinking] How did I get here? Somewhere along the way, things have gotten out of hand. I don't know how. I tried to do things right, but...maybe that's the problem. Maybe there is no right or wrong. Weâ??re ruled by chaos. That would make more sense. That there are no rewards, no punishments. Life isn't a series of results of things done right or wrong. Itâ??s all just random. Those are the rules. There are no rules.

Esther Gold says: If you are ever in a praying situation with Him: Be Specific! Include certain clauses. It's not enough to assume that if a person lives they'll be okay... Cause God has a wicked sense of humor. And even though he knows you mean more, he'll only give you exactly what you ask for.
