Was a leading choice to play the mother in Terms of Endearment (1983).
[2012, on why she can no longer bear to watch One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975)] 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.
