The popular actress’s daughter is all set to step into her mother’s footsteps having inherited her gorgeous looks.
29-year-old actress Annie Starke is not just a spitting image of Glenn Close, she has also played the younger version of her mother in two different films.
Starke’s striking similarity to her famous mother is undeniable and it has become more apparent with her growth.
A quick look at her official Instagram shows that she has inherited the similar stunning features that Close boasts.
The fact that Starke has played the younger version of Close in two of her films further proves this point.
According to Woman’s Day, Close’s last year’s release, “The Wife,” featured Starke as the younger version of Glenn’s character, Joan Castleman.
The movie based on Meg Wolitzer’s novel revolves around Close’s character, who travels with her husband, set to receive Nobel Prize for Literature, to Stockholm and realizes that she wants to leave him.
Prior to that, Starke also played Close’s character’s younger version in a 2017 movie, “Father Figures.”
"I don’t expect her to be like me. I just want her to be safe, to have good values, and to be able to eventually find work that’s fulfilling.”
Previously, the mother-daughter duo also worked together for Close’s 2011 movie, “Albert Nobbs,” in which Starke played the role of a chocolate shop waitress.
Starke is Close’s only child with film producer John Starke. The mother-daughter pair share a close bond as was apparent during the promotional programs for their movie, “The Wife,” as per the source.
During a 2007 interview with Good Housekeeping, Close opened up about her emotional connection with her daughter.
She explained that Starke provides her an inspiration each time she has to get emotional for a role. During such situations, she thinks back to the time when she dropped Starke off at college.
Close also called her daughter an “independent, strong child” for her eagerness to start college away from home.
“I’m my child’s custodian. I don’t expect her to be like me. I just want her to be safe, to have good values, and to be able to eventually find work that’s fulfilling.”
