Movies stars, models, pop stars and world leaders were all drawn to Mandela, the celebrity magnet.
Mandela's daughters insisted that the film continue.
People living in the same building as the troubled actress in New York City have drawn comparisons between her and Linda's role as a devil-possessed child in the 1973 horror film, claiming she often looks "completely out of it" and talks to herself. One neighbour told the New York Post newspaper: "She stares you out in the elevator. Residents are terrified to be alone with her. She knocked on one woman's door, and when it opened, she screamed "You're ugly," and ran away. Amanda always seems to be alone, muttering to herself and looking completely out of it."
Hasn't been home in a week
However, the 27-year-old star reportedly hasn't been spotted in her apartment building since she was arrested last week, for which she was later charged with attempted evidence tampering, reckless endangerment and marijuana possession. The source added: "The day before her arrest, she arrived in a cab and ran upstairs, leaving the driver shrieking that she owed him $150. She left her cellphone in the cab. The good news is, she hasn't been seen in the building since the arrest."Amanda's lawyer, Lee Hutton, has played down claims of her antics, insisting they have been exaggerated. He explained: "Amanda's fine. This has all been blown out of proportion."
