Mcdowell: 'I'm Not Scared Of Eye Drops'
British actor MALCOLM MCDOWELL has slammed rumours he has a phobia of eye drops after his performance in iconic STANLEY KUBRICK movie A CLOCKWORK ORANGE.
The star played Alex de Large in the controversial 1971 film, with his violent character forced to continually watch a montage of human atrocities with his eyes prised open with clamps in a bid to "reform" him.
Rumours abound MCDowell now has a fear of eye drops after Kubrick forced him to keep his eyes open for 24 hours, but the actor insists the oft-quoted trivia is unfounded.
He says, "No (it's not true)!I wish they would take that off the f**king internet!"
