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!"
