Speaking with ET's Jennifer Peros on the red carpet at the 71st Annual Tony Awards on Sunday, outside Radio City Music Hall in New York City, the Oscar-nominated star reflected on the iconic film, and revealed which scene she most fondly remembers filming.
"My favorite memory, I guess [was] doing that crazy kitchen scene," Close said, laughing. "Clinging to Michael Douglas with his underpants around his ankles. I thought that was pretty great."
According to Close -- who was nominated for an Oscar for her role as the dangerously obsessed Alex Forrest in Fatal Attraction -- she's remained close friends with her co-star over the last three decades.
"He’s a great friend. He and [wife Catherine Zeta-Jones] came to see Sunset Boulevard, and it was really wonderful," Close said, referring to her celebrated Broadway revival of Sunset Boulevard, which Close first won a Tony Award for in 1995. "He came [backstage] with tears in his eyes. It really meant the world to me."
Close explained that the pair's long-lasting connection is not uncommon for actors who "go through an intense experience," like shooting a movie as emotionally and psychologically demanding as Fatal Attraction.
"It’s such a gift being an actor. You go through these amazing experiences together and you remain friends for life [regardless of] how much you do or don’t see each other," Close shared. "It doesn’t change."
