SHARE BUGSY’S FINE, BUT ACTRESS JUST CAN’T STOMACH CANDY

Call her Bergen. Call her Bugsy. Just please, please don't call her Candy.

"I used to think, `What's it going to be like to turn 50 and be called Candy?' " actress Candice Bergen says in the September issue of InStyle magazine. "As I got older, people started calling me Candice because they must have thought it was more age-appropriate. I'm not crazy about either name."Bugsy is the nickname provided by co-star Jack Nicholson during the filming of "Carnal Knowledge."

Her husband, French film director Louis Malle, refers to her as "the wife," says Bergen, 48, the Emmy-winning star of television's "Murphy Brown."
