( CM ) - Legendary lothario JACK NICHOLSON hates how the media portray him as a sex symbol - because he likens himself to "the devil". The As Good As It Gets star, whose ex-girlfriends include Lara Flynn Boyle and Anjelica Huston, doesn't understand why he attracts the opposite sex - insisting the high praise has never inflated his ego. The Oscar winner says, "It's very hard to think of yourself in those terms. I see myself in the mirror every morning, and I'm looking the devil right in the face. "I don't relate to what's said about me - how famous I'm supposed to be, how much of a sex symbol I'm supposed to be - and I don't think I could function, really, if I started to believe that stuff."
