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."
Johnson, the actress daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, spent the whole evening worried she'd drop a trophy as she carried it out onstage - and the fear ruined her night.
She recalls, "It was terrifying... You bring the Golden Globes out and you give them to the very talented people... I was 16 and I was terrified.
"I was wearing these gloves and I kept thinking that they were gonna slip out of my hands; I was gonna be the girl that dropped a Golden Globe on the stage and, like, ruin everything. I don't even remember the night, honestly, I was so terrified.
"You have to move everyone... and you have to make the presenters move back to a certain line, so their nose isn't in the camera during the speech. It was such a job."
The daughters of celebrities are invited to hand out the awards and become Miss Golden Globe annually. Since Johnson's turn in 2006, the role has been filled by the kids of Jack Nicholson and Rebecca Broussard, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, Roderick Spencer and Alfre Woodard, Joe and Arlene Mantegna, and Andie MacDowell and Paul Qualley.
The long-awaited follow-up, entitled Doctor Sleep, will hit shelves on 24 September next year (13), the author confirmed on his website on Tuesday (18Sep12).
The novel will centre around a hospice worker who helps his patients die painlessly, and comes into contact with a group of psychic vampires.
King's 1977 classic was adapted for the big screen three years later and the film, directed by Stanley Kubrick and starring Jack Nicholson, became a cult favourite.
There's an allure to imperfection. With his latest drama Lawless director John Hillcoat taps directly into the side of human nature that draws us to it. Hillcoat finds it in Prohibition history a time when the regulations of alcohol consumption were subverted by most of the population; He finds it in the rural landscapes of Virginia: dingy raw and mesmerizing. And most importantly he finds it in his main character Jack Bondurant (Shia LaBeouf) the scrappy third brother of a moonshining family who is desperate to prove his worth. Jack forcefully injects himself into the family business only to discover there's an underbelly to the underbelly. Lawless is a beautiful film that's violent as hell striking in a way only unfiltered Americana could be.
Acting as the driver for his two outlaw brothers Forrest (Tom Hardy) and Howard (Jason Clarke) isn't enough for Jack. He's enticed by the power of the gangster figure and entranced by what moonshine money can buy. So like any fledgling entrepreneur Jack takes matters into his own hands. Recruiting crippled family friend/distillery mastermind Cricket (Dane DeHaan) the young whippersnapper sets out to brew his own batch sell it to top dog Floyd Banner and make the family rich. The plan works — but it puts the Bondurant boys in over their heads with a new threat: the corrupt law enforcers of Chicago.
Unlike many stories of crime life Lawless isn't about escalation. The movie drifts back and forth leisurely popping in moments like the beats of a great TV episode. One second the Bondurants could be talking shop with their female shopkeep Maggie Beauford (Jessica Chastain). The next Forrest is beating the bloody pulp out of a cop blackmailing their operation. The plot isn't thick; Hillcoat and screenwriter Nick Cave preferring to bask in the landscapes the quiet moments the haunting terror that comes with a life on the other side of the tracks. A feature film doesn't offer enough time for Lawless to build — it recalls cinema-level TV currently playing on outlets like HBO and AMC that have truly spoiled us — but what the duo accomplish is engrossing.
Accompanying the glowing visuals and Cave's knockout workout on the music side (a toe-tapping mix of spirituals bluegrass and the writer/musician's spine-tingling violin) are muted performances from some of Hollywood's rising stars. Despite LaBeouf's off-screen antics he lights up Lawless and nails the in-deep whippersnapper. His playful relationship with a local religious girl (Mia Wasikowska) solidifies him as a leading man but like everything in the movie you want more. Tom Hardy is one of the few performers who can "uurrr" and "mmmnerm" his way through a scene and come out on top. His greatest sparring partner isn't a hulking thug but Chastain who brings out the heart of the impenetrable beast. The real gem of Lawless is Guy Pearce as the Bondurant trio's biggest threat. Shaved eyebrows pristine city clothes and a temper like a rabid wolverine Pearce's Charlie Rakes is the most frightening villain of 2012. He viciously chews up every moment he's on screen. That's even before he starts drawing blood.
Lawless is the perfect movie for the late August haze — not quite the Oscary prestige picture or the summertime shoot-'em-up. It's drama that has its moonshine and swigs it too. Just don't drink too much.
The movie great and co-star Diane Keaton's characters hit a club on a date night for the film, but the singing scenes didn't make the cut in the finished version, much to Nicholson's dismay.
Meyers tells WENN, "He gets up to sing for her (Keaton's character) and it's La Vie En Rose, which he sings to her in French. He worked really hard on it.
"I had to cut the scene out because it just didn't fit the following scene, where he goes out with another woman. When it came time to tell Jack I was cutting out the scene he didn't hold back his disappointment. He said, 'Chief, what do you mean?'
"He brings it up to me every time I see him and recently I saw him for his birthday and he cornered me (and said), 'Now, about that scene...'
"To make it up to him, I put it in the DVD, so at least he can watch it on there."
Beauty is only fur deep for the 29 dogs who competed at the World's Ugliest Dog competition on Friday in Petaluma, Calif.
Competing for bragging rights, a year's supply of dog cookies and a grand prize of $1,000, a patchy-haired Chinese Crested named Mugly from the UK took home the dubious title.
"I couldn't speak when they announced Mugly's name," his owner Bev Nicholson said. "I didn't know which way to look. I was shaking as much as the dog."
Although Nicholson acknowledges her pet's unusual looks, she also says "he's beautiful, inside and out."
Watch Mugly in action (in a little hat):
The star signed up for the new comedy, based on Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson's 2003 movie of the same name, after he was fired from his last TV job, Two and a Half Men, following a public bust-up with producers.
The programme is due to premiere in the U.S. later this month (Jun12), but Sheen admits he is already looking to the future and is eager to quit showbusiness once Anger Management runs its course.
The 46 year old tells the New York Times, "I've got a dream life as a direct result of television, you know? But at some point you just get tired of wearing somebody else's clothes, saying somebody else's words and working in somebody else's space.
"When I'm done with this business it's just going to be about soccer games and amusement parks. And when this ends, I'm done. This is my swan song... There's a lot more out there to do than make-believe, you know?"
The Apartment actress took to the stage at the Sony Pictures Studios in Los Angeles as she became the 40th Hollywood star to receive the honour.
Other stars in attendance included Jack Nicholson, Julia Roberts, Jack Black and Meryl Streep, with MacLaine's younger brother Warren Beatty telling the Associated Press, "Tonight we're here to honour a person I have known, a person I have loved my whole life."
Black adds, "This is not the first lifetime achievement award she's won over the ages."
