The actress had previously been married to songwriter Cabot Wade from 1969-71 and businessman James Marlas from 1984-87.

The couple had no children, though Close has a daughter (Annie Starke) from a relationship with movie producer John Starke.

"Too many women define themselves in terms of a man," Close told People in 1987. "I think of men and women as two different species. Katharine Hepburn said they should live next door and visit each other once in a while. Not a bad idea."
