New details on Harrison Ford's shake-up concerning Glenn Close ahead of major recent appearance

Harrison Ford has been making his big comeback into the spotlight thanks to recent TV appearances and a new Indiana Jones movie scheduled to release this year.

One of his most high-profile appearances recently was the 95th Academy Awards this past Sunday, during which he presented the award for Best Picture, although many viewers were left unaware that he was supposed to have a co-star.

Glenn Close was slated to join Harrison as a co-presenter on the night, but was forced to drop out at the last minute due to testing positive for Covid-19.

The actress returned to social media on Saturday, a day before her 76th birthday, with a candid video from her home in Bozeman, Montana, opening up about the missed opportunity.

"So I had to go into isolation," she explained. "I watched it on television, was thrilled with everything and happy with all the winners.

"It was six days, I just got back home yesterday. Still feeling…not great, but really happy to be home," she added, then turning the camera over to her dog before talking about more of the projects she had in the pipeline, including Cameron Diaz's comeback vehicle Back in Action.
