The Wife star was tasked with summing up the plots of iconic films like Mary Poppins and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, which is easier said than done. But, of course, she made it look very easy, crooking her finger for the latter film, for example, and simply saying "Home" in the most alien voice she could muster. So, not only does she have us hankering for a rewatch of the 1982 Steven Spielberg classic, but now we also want her to voice E.T. in the inevitable remake (at this point, no beloved film is off limits).
Watch her performance above, and then check out Close's last, seriously adorable appearance on The Tonight Show.
