Nurse 3D Was So Bad It Ruined Paz De La Huerta’s Career Claims Lawsuit


Last year saw the release of Douglas Aarniokoski’s Nurse 3D, which starred Paz De La Huerta as a badass nurse who lured cheating men to their brutal deaths. Some hated it while others embraced it as campy fun, though apparently the film’s star wasn’t a fan.

As reported by TMZ, Paz De La Huerta has filed a lawsuit claiming that Nurse 3D was so bad it ruined her career, and she’s seeking $55 million in damages. When the movie was released, critics panned the actress’ performance, and the gist of the lawsuit is that it wasn’t her fault.

Per the site…

Paz claims she was shooting a scene where an ambulance was supposed to speed by, but it ended up clipping her. Paz says she suffered a spinal fracture and told movie execs she was going to file a worker’s comp claim. That’s all the director needed to hear. According to Paz, he decided she was a pain in the ass so he had a lousy actress dub her voice in the ambulance scene and other scenes as well.

The movie tanked, bringing in a grand total of $5k opening weekend. Critics panned the flick, pointing to Paz’s monotone performance. So she says her career is cooked, and since she was making around $2 million a year, she believes that would total $55 million, plus punitive damages.

And that’s not all. She wants the judge to order the director to re-dub the voice in the movie with hers.

Ironically, Paz De La Huerta’s wacky performance in Nurse 3D is the only thing that made it even remotely worth watching. Go figure!
