Glenn Close Regrets Fatal Attraction Role


Glenn Close Fatal Attraction

Actress Glenn Close regrets her portrayal of a knife-wielding stalker in Fatal Attraction as she is convinced her most famous film role contributed to the stigmatisation of mental health issues.

The star won an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of disturbed Alex Forrest, a woman who ruthlessly pursues a married man, played by Michael Douglas, and even boils his family's pet rabbit after he ends their affair in the 1987 thriller.

The movie gave rise to the unflattering term 'bunny boiler' for an unstable woman, and Close, whose sister and nephew both suffer mental health problems, insists she now wishes she had done things differently.

Charlize Theron Glenn Close Fatal Attraction

Charlize Theron credits Glenn Close for opening her up to sex talk with her mum - because an early screening of Fatal Attraction left the young South African with a host of questions.

The Monster star personally thanked the Hollywood veteran during a recent Actress Roundtable staged by industry magazine The Hollywood Reporter, revealing that she had no idea about sex before she saw the racy 1987 film at a drive-in cinema.

Theron told Close, "I grew up in a farm community town and we didn't have movie theatres. My mom loved movies, and every Friday she would drive us out to a drive-in 45 minutes away from our farm. But we didn't know what would play.

"When the cars started lining up, you would see what was playing and you would see the rating, and my mom would hide me under a blanket if the rating was R.
