Glenn Close Emotionally Declares If Christopher Reeve Was Alive, Robin Williams 'Would Be Too'

Glenn Close Emotionally Declares If Christopher Reeve Was Alive, Robin Williams 'Would Be Too'
Glenn Close says that Christopher Reeve and Robin Williams' friendship was so strong that she believes if the Superman star was still alive, he could have saved Williams. 

The 70-year-old actress got emotional while delivering a touching speech at the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation's annual "A Magical Evening" Gala in New York City on Thursday, where she reflected on the late actors and her friendship with them both. 

"My first connection to Christopher Reeve was through Robin Williams, when we were shooting The World According to Garp. It was the summer of 1982, when we were filming on Fishers Island," Close began. "On Friday evenings, Chris would literally swoop in, piloting his own plane, scoop Robin up, and away they would fly for the weekend. On Sunday, late afternoon, Chris would swoop back in and deliver Robin back -- I have to say a little worse for wear."

"Those were the heady days for them both," she continued

My 5: ‘The Chew’ Host Carla Hall’s Go-To Celebrity Cookbooks (Exclusive)

My 5: ‘The Chew’ Host Carla Hall’s Go-To Celebrity Cookbooks (Exclusive)
Chef Carla Hall has one goal for the holidays: for everyone to slow down.

“We’re so busy doing stuff,” says The Chew host and former Top Chef contestant, who is perhaps best remembered for her philosophy of “cooking with love.” “The busier I get, the more family is important to me. I have to carve time out to make sure that everything else stops around me and that I get this time to spend with family.”

It’s why Hall is partnering with T.J. Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods to launch the Gift My Gathering campaign, which aims to inspire families to press pause and celebrate what truly matters -- each other -- by offering the chance to win their own holiday celebration. “This campaign says, ‘Forget the stuff. Let's look at each other. Let's have a conversation. We're going to celebrate each other.’ And I think that's the greatest gift,” she explains.

10 Things About The Dark Knight You Never Knew

10 Things About The Dark Knight You Never Knew
The Dark Knight is one of the greatest comic book movies of all time, ranked among the popcorn cinema elite in fan polls as one of the best movies ever. The penultimate chapter of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy saw Christian Bale's Batman go up against the Joker, portrayed with haunting villainy by the late Heath Ledger, who won a posthumous Oscar for the role. Ledger's commitment to the character is the stuff of legend. But there were plenty of other cool facts behind the scenes, as well.

Katie Holmes skipped the sequel to make a terrible comedy.

Memento filmmaker Christopher Nolan rescued the World's Greatest Detective from the train wreck of glossy camp that was Joel Schumacher's Batman and Robin with 2005's Batman Begins, a serious minded reboot adored by fans and critics. Katie Holmes co-starred as Bruce Wayne love interest Rachel Dawes, but the Dawson's Creek

“Buffy the Vampire Slayer” Being Resurrected as Middle-Grade Book Series

Sarah Michelle Gellar in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Buffy Summers is coming back from the dead. Again. Entertainment Weekly reports that Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, in association with 20th Century Consumer Products, has acquired a new middle-grade book series that centers on everyone’s favorite vampire slayer. Cartoonist Carolyn Nowak will pen the stories, which fuse together comics, journal entries, text messages, and class notes.

While the books are aimed at a younger audience than the original series, they’ll maintain “themes of empowerment and independence,” the source writes. So, if you were counting down the days until you could introduce your favorite kid to the joys of “Buffy” without traumatizing them with the death of beloved characters, sexual innuendos, and/or gore, you’re in luck.

Created by “Avengers” writer-director Joss Whedon, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” aired on the The WB from 1997- 2001 and Upn from 2001–03. Sarah Michelle Gellar played the title role, a highschooler who is tasked with fighting vampires, demons, and other forms of evil brewing in Sunnydale, California. The heroine was first introduced in a 1992 film starring Kristy Swanson. Whedon penned the script and Fran Rubel Kuzu directed the feature.

Whedon famously conceived the character after seeing so many horror movies kill off blond girls who walked into alleys. “Literally, I just had that image, that scene, in my mind, like the trailer for a movie — what if the girl goes into the dark alley. And the monster follows her. And she destroys him,” he’s explained.

Widely considered one of the most influential series of all time, “Buffy” celebrated its 20th anniversary this year. “As an actor, you wish for that one role where you can leave your mark and forever be remembered, with ‘Buffy’ I got so much more,” Gellar posted on Instagram in honor of the occasion. “She’s a feminist challenge to gender hierarchy. Buffy may have been the Chosen One, but I was the lucky one.”

Head over to EW to check out the first book in the new “Buffy” series, “New School Nightmare.”

Buffy the Vampire Slayer” Being Resurrected as Middle-Grade Book Series was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Out of All 144 Episodes of Buffy, Sarah Michelle Gellar Picks Her Absolute Favorite

  • BuzzSugar
There are very few TV shows that compare to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Sarah Michelle Gellar knows it. Not only did the supernatural drama spawn 144 episodes and seven whole seasons, but it also gave rise to Gellar's empowering, vampire-slaying heroine, a character who ended up paving the way for more bold female figures on TV down the road. It's no wonder that, even after 20 years, the show's fan base is insanely dedicated. While there were tons of memorable moments during its seven seasons, there are two episodes in particular that really stand out to the show's star, albeit for different reasons. As for her overall favorite?
