Fatal Attraction star Glenn Close, 74, totally stole the show at the Oscars 2021 by taking part in the Da Butt challenge. The actress, who has been nominated for an Academy Award eight times, stunned viewers when she spontaneously got up and twerked during the ceremony.
The amazing moment took place when Lil Rel Howery asked her if she recognised the track being played by DJ Questlove.
Glenn, who stunned in a navy gown covered in sparkling embellishments, got up from her seat to shake her bum and sway her hips.
The acting legend was applauded by her fellow guests at the ceremony, as she flaunted her rear with her dance moves while shouting “Da Butt”.
The room could be heard bursting into fits of laughter, while viewers took to Twitter to praise Glenn for brightening up the 93rd Academy Awards.
