Glenn Close Advises James Gunn to Be Wiser About Social Media

EXCLUSIVE

Glenn Close seems conflicted about the firing of director James Gunn over his offensive tweets, but she has some advice for him when it comes to social media.

We got the legendary actress Thursday outside a BUILD Series event in NYC for her upcoming movie  "The Wife" ... and asked her about Disney's decision to fire Gunn. She worked with him when she played Nova Prime in "Guardians of the Galaxy."

She deflected on whether she supports Disney's move, and instead said Gunn, and others, should take a different approach before clicking "tweet" or "share." 

As we reported ... Gunn was axed as director of the 'Guardians' franchise after years-old tweets surfaced in which he made crass and offensive comments about 9/11, AIDS, rape and pedophilia.
