I don`t have the face for romantic films: Glenn Close

London: Veteran actress Glenn Close says she will never star in a romantic comedy because she doesn`t have the "body or face" for them. The 64-year-old, who plays a woman pretending to be a man during 19th century Ireland in new drama `Albert Nobbs`, said she doesn`t suit the look usually associated with romantic films, reported a website.

"I don`t have the body or the face for romantic comedies, so I`ve never been offered those. The challenge is that a lot of people see you only as your last character, so you`re constantly competing with whatever your last movie was," Close said.

The actress lost out on an Oscar for her performance in `Albert Nobbs` to Meryl Streep and said she has never put so much work into one picture.

"I`ve never done this much in one film before. I bought the material, I put the team together, I found the money to finance it. The obstacles were like those faced by any indie film that goes way outside of any formula - you`ve got to get people to understand the power of the story," she said.
