Glenn Close talks with Jason Kurtz about her "very nice" real-life persona: "You don't know me, you just met me!"

Following her candid and heartfelt interview with Piers Morgan (airing Thursday, 9 p.m.,) television and film icon Glenn Close was gracious enough to spend some time backstage, speaking candidly about her commitment to "Bring Change 2 Mind," while also sharing insight into her most intense roles.

"Whether it's 'Damages,' or 'Fatal Attraction,' or even the Dalmatian movie ['101 Dalmatians,' '102 Dalmatians',] you are always playing, at the very least, these powerful women," noted Digital Producer Jason Kurtz, in referencing some of the actresses signature roles. "In real life, you're very, very nice."

Chucking, the guest quipped "You don't know me, you just met me!"

Admitting Close was technically correct, Kurtz followed up nonetheless:

"Where does that come from? How do you channel that sort of energy? How do you get into those kind of roles?"

Thinking about her process, and joined by her family, the six-time Academy Award nominee explained her inspiration:

"Find kind of a psychological and emotional hitch," said Close. "It's the kind of writing I really like."

Watch the clip to hear Close offer additional context regarding her work with mental illness advocacy, then tune in this evening at 9 for the entire conversation with the Emmy, Golden Globe and Tony award winner.

    My daughter is a mentally ill lady of 47 years old. Sometimes she is almost normal then within a few minutes of conversation she turns into the girl in Rosemary's Baby. I help her when I can but have no legal rights. I can't talk to her case worker without her saying it is OK. To me, it is like my little girl is at the bottom of a well and calling for help. NOBODY HEARS HER
