Acting's a real drag for Glenn Close!

The award-winning actress, 63, disguises herself as a man in Albert Nobbs. Set in 19th century Ireland, the flick began shooting in Dublin earlier this month. Close plays a woman who must pass as a man in order to find work.

Jonathan Rhys Myers and Alice in Wonderland's Mia Wasikowska also star.

Close also cross-dressed as Albert Nobbs in a 1980s off-Broadway show.

"I believe in this story and its potential to take everyone on a sensuous, funny, heart-breaking, wildly unexpected ride," says Close, who's been trying to get Albert Nobbs made for over 15 years.
