Actress Glenn Close is “distraught” over her inclusion in lewd videos that cost Captain Owen Honors his job.

The raunchy videos, which include a healthy dose of anti-gay jokes and sexual innuendo, surfaced without explanation last week.

Honors, who produced and broadcast the videos aboard the USS Enterprise in 2006 and 2007 while he served as the ship's executive officer, or XO, was relieved of his command of the world's first nuclear powered aircraft carrier on Tuesday.

Footage of Close's tour of the carrier in 2006 is included in at least one video.

“I am distraught that my image has been used to perpetuate something that I abhor,” Close said in a statement. “The cynical, unauthorized use of my image in this video is deeply offensive and insulting, and was the result of a seemingly innocent request made during a visit to an aircraft carrier over four years ago.”

Close is a strong advocate for gay rights, in particular the repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell,” the soon-to-be defunct law that bans gay and bisexual troops from serving openly in the military.
