The Fatal Attraction star is seen in a string of films made by Captain Owen Honors of the USS Enterprise, one of America’s premiere aircraft carriers.
The video, which Honors claims he made to boost Navy officers’ morale, shows young women showering, overweight men in bikinis and jokes about proctology exams, while Close is seen in a montage at the end of the clip wearing a Navy hat.
And the five-times Oscar-nominated actress is disgusted she has been linked to the videos, saying in a statement, “I am distraught that my image has been used to perpetuate something that I abhor.
“The cynical, unauthorised use of my image in this video is deeply offensive and insulting, and was the result of a seemingly innocent request of me during a visit to the aircraft carrier over four years ago.”
Honors was dishonourably discharged from naval duties on Tuesday (04Jan11).
