Academy Award & Golden Globe Nominee Sally Kellerman: (imdb.com)

Robert Altman initially did not want Kellerman for the part of "Hot Lips Houlihan" in 'MASH' 1970 because "she was too attractive" and he wanted unattractive actors. In 1969, she reportedly almost talked herself out of her most famous role. She had an argument with MASH (1970) director Robert Altman after reading the script. She was incensed about the way her proposed character, "Hot Lips" O'Houlihan, was to be humiliated. Altman said that her attitude and passion was exactly what he was looking for in that character! And finally the humiliating scenes became actually the best known and almost the most popular moments of the movie. Particularly the famous prank scene, in which the shower tent was lifted up to expose the attractive but snooty "Hot Lips" O'Houlihan, evoked a large number of imitations in movie history.
