His family moved to Indiana, and then to Michigan and finally settled in San Diego when Close was seven years old. He graduated with a B.A. in communications at the University of Southern California in 1989.

Close married Keri in 1995 and has two daughters, Katie and Ella. Close is a very reserved person who likes to keep his private life separate from his work. He loves traveling the world, he's a sportsman, preferring outdoor sports such as mountain climbing/free climbing, snow skiing, tennis, golf, sailing and surf and fly-fishing. He also enjoys reading historical books. He was interested in acting from a very early age, and had some stage experience in school, but didn't decide to go for an acting career until after college.
