Glenn Close reveals she was ‘dying to find’ Pete Davidson and meet Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala

Glenn Close tried and failed to meet up with her pal Pete Davidson at the Met Gala this Monday and was introduced to his girlfriend Kim Kardashian.

The 75-year-old actress made a splash on the red carpet in a billowing electric pink Valentino ensemble at the star-studded event.

‘But I didn’t get to mingle around and to find, I was dying to find Pete Davidson, who’s my friend, and meet Kim, but …,’ she said with a shrug on SiriusXM radio.

Glenn befriended Pete last year when she interviewed him for the Variety Actors On Actors web-series – a pair-up that turns out to have been his idea.

‘They said that Pete Davidson wanted me to interview him, and I said,’ What? ” Glenn said while being interviewed on SiriusXM this week.

‘And we ended up doing this, you know, as everyone was doing, Zoom video together, and we had the best time!’ she dished. ‘Yeah, and we stayed friends.’

Glenn spilled that the interview ‘was a pretty even exchange. There are things about Pete that I really love and it’s, you know, he’s great to be around. ‘

Pete has been open over the years about his struggles with mental illness and Glenn showered him with praise for his candor.

‘I so respect the way he talks about what he’s going through and, you know, just that alone has I’m sure helped millions of people,’ she said.

Kim stole the show on the Met Gala red carpet in the legendary skintight gold dress Marilyn Monroe wore to John F. Kennedy’s birthday party in 1962.

Because she could not have the dress altered at all, she crash-dieted in the run-up to the event and lost 16lbs in three weeks in order to make the gown fit.

She was also mindful that she needed to protect the historic costume piece, so she only wore it up the red carpet and then changed into a replica for the rest of the fete.

Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue and global chief content officer of Conde Nast, has been at the helm of the Met Gala for more than a quarter of a century.

Glenn shared that at the Met Gala, after having pictures taken in front of the wall of red roses, ‘you go to Anna, and she’s there with the hosts, and you present yourself.’

This year the Met Gala returned to its usual date of the first Monday in May, after last year’s event had to be held in September because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The theme of the 2022 event was Gilded Glamor, with Vogue instructing guests ‘to embody the grandeur – and perhaps the dichotomy – of Gilded Age New York.’
