LOUISE FLETCHER REFUSES TO WATCH CRUEL NURSE RATCHED ROLE

Thursday, October 04, 2012 - Actress Louise Fletcher can't stand to watch her Oscar-winning turn as the tyrannical nurse in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest because her character was so cruel.

Fletcher picked up the Academy Award for Best Actress for her terrifying portrayal of Nurse Ratched in the 1975 cult classic, starring Jack Nicholson as a patient in a mental asylum.

Despite the acclaim she received for her performance, Fletcher admits she can't bring herself to watch the film due to her character's behaviour

- especially when she has Nicholson's Randle McMurphy lobotomised.

She tells the Associated Press, "I find it too painful. It comes with age. I can't watch movies that are inhumane. I was really shocked in those

scenes where I was actually so cruel."
