They say being forewarned is forearmed, and that was exactly Glenn Close's mentality ahead of the Oscars 2021. 

The 74-year-old actor – who was nominated for the Best Supporting Actress award for her role in Hillbilly Elegy at the 93rd Academy Awards made sure her feet were well-prepared for their stint in stilettos at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. 

The Fatal Attraction star shared a clip on Instagram of her stylist massaging CBD oil into her pedicured feet during her awards preparation. 

Speaking in a clip she said: "Just using CBD oil on my feet, just to make sure I will be nice and comfy because my feet suffer terribly."
