Added DiffLines:

**Close felt that her portrayal of Alex Forrest perpetuated stigmas against mental illness, particularly the misconception that people with Borderline Personality Disorder are violent towards others.[[note]]People with BPD are more likely to hurt ''themselves'' than other people.[[/note]] Ironically, she would later create the organization "Bring Change 2 Mind" [[http://bringchange2mind.org]], which is devoted to ''de-stigmatizing'' mental illness.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The original ending (which is shown in the Japanese version) had [[spoiler:Alex commit suicide to make it look like Dan did it and Dan getting arrested for Alex's "murder." Dan's wife then finds Alex's note on tape that reveals the whole thing was a suicide and goes to the police about it.]]

* CreatorBacklash: Creator/GlennClose prefers the original ending, feeling that Alex was more suicidal than psychotic.

* CreatorBacklash: Creator/GlennClose was so angry over plans to reshoot the ending that for two weeks, she refused to do it. To this day, she prefers the original ending, version, feeling that Alex was more suicidal than psychotic.psychotic. Adrian Lyne wasn't keen on having to redo it either and presumably wouldn't have had test audiences not hated it.



* PlayingAgainstType: Up to this point in her career, Creator/GlennClose had played warm, fuzzy, earth-mother women and gotten nominated for Oscars three times. This was a radical change—so radical, in fact, that she got stuck playing similar characters for a while.

* EnforcedMethodActing: Adrian Lyne got Ellen's tearful reaction upon watching her parents argue by bullying the actress and threatening to take away her stuffed animal (that's why she's clutching it). Once the scene was complete, he assured her he was only kidding.
