Glenn Close Zoomed Three Times A Week With Language Coach To Learn Farsi For 'Tehran'

Glenn Close wows in a bright blue suit at the premiere of her Apple TV+ series, Tehran, held at The Robin Williams Center on Wednesday (May 4) in New York City.

The 75-year-old actress met up with her co-stars Niv Sultan, Shila Ommi, Arash Marand, Shervin Alenabi and Shaun Toub on the red carpet, ahead of the second season premiere.

Glenn joined the series for the new season, and had to learn Farsi for her role, Marjan Montazeri, a British agent living in Tehran.

“It just — it was a challenge and territory I never explored before,” she shared with ET at the event.

Glenn added that learning the language “was very challenging. It has a different sentence structure. It’s more like German, with the verb at the end. You use your mouth differently. It has certain sounds that we don’t have in English. But I had a phenomenal coach in Anna Bayat, who worked with me on Zoom three times a week.”

She continued, “It’s just a lot of — you start with one word at a time, then sentences, then repetition, repetition, and then you have to learn the proper intonation, and then you have to say it faster than you think you ever can say it.”

Tehran centers on Tamar (Sultan), an Israeli agent and computer hacker born in Iran but raised in Israel, is tasked with infiltrating an electric company to cut power to Iranian air defenses.

Thereby an Israeli air attack against Iran’s nuclear power plant will be undetected. The mission goes terribly wrong and ends in a race against time.

Tehran is back on May 6 on Apple TV+.

Just recently, Glenn made her Met Gala debut!

The 39-year-old Pam & Tommy actor wore a pink layered look, while the 75-year-old Fatal Attraction actress stepped out in a stunning cape with floral embellishments.

The dress code for the event is “Gilded Glamour” and it’s inspired by the Costume Institute’s exhibition, In America: An Anthology of Fashion. Guests are asked to “embody the grandeur—and perhaps the dichotomy—of Gilded Age New York,” a period that stretched from 1870 to 1890. The official co-chairs this year are Regina King, Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

FYI: They are both wearing Valentino.

Gwyneth Paltrow Reacts to Glenn Close Saying Her Oscar Win Didn't 'Make Sense'

Gwyneth Paltrow won the Best Actress award at the 1999 Oscars, but Glenn Close still doesn’t understand why she received the prize.

Now, Gwyneth is finally reacting to the comments that Glenn made last year.

While promoting her movie Hillbilly Elegy in November 2020, Glenn shared her thoughts on awards shows and how performances are compared to each other.

“I honestly feel that to be nominated by your peers is about as good as it gets. And then, I’ve never understood how you could honestly compare performances, you know?” Glenn said on ABC News’ Popcorn with Peter Travers. “I remember the year Gwyneth Paltrow won over that incredible actress who was in Central Station and I thought, ‘What?’ It doesn’t make sense.”

Fernanda Montenegro is the actress from Central Station. The other nominees in the category that yea were Cate Blanchett for Elizabeth, Meryl Streep for One True Thing, and Emily Watson for Hilary and Jackie.

Glenn added, “So I think who wins has a lot of things to do with how things have been, you know, whether it has traction or whatever. Publicity, how much money did they have to put it out in front of everybody’s sight… I have to be philosophical about it, if I was upset about it.”
