>MY FAVORITE VILLAINS

The comedy icon, 78, lends her voice to a duplicitous housekeeper in The Secret World of Arrietty, out Feb. 17. These dastardly dames inspired her.

1 EVE in ALL ABOUT EVE

(Played by Anne Baxter) She starts off as so innocent. Slowly you discover she’s deeply manipulative.

2 ALEX IN FATAL ATTRACTION

(Played by Glenn Close) Talk about scary! She’s as crazy as can be, but she thinks she’s righteous.

3 THE WICKED WITCH IN THE WIZARD OF OZ

(Played by Margaret Hamilton) She scared the hell out of me when I was a kid. I mean, that laugh? When I was a grown-up, I appreciated what she was doing as an actress.

4 MISS HANNIGAN IN ANNIE

(Played by Burnett) I still have a soft spot for her. To her, those little orphans were the true villains. They were the ones driving her crazy!
