2. She Spent 15 Years In A Cult-Like Religious Group
When Close was 7 years old, her father joined a conservative religious group called the Moral Re-Armament (MRA) and moved her family to Switzerland so that they could be closer to the group’s headquarters.

Close has described the group as a cult, telling Hollywood Reporter magazine, "You basically weren't allowed to do anything, or you were made to feel guilty about any unnatural desire...If you talk to anybody who was in a group that basically dictates how you're supposed to live and what you're supposed to say and how you're supposed to feel, from the time you're 7 till the time you're 22, it has a profound impact on you."
