Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron is convinced she will miss out on a second Best Actress Academy Award at next month's (MAR06) Oscars.

The MONSTER star, who has been nominated for her performance as struggling single mother and harassed mineworker Josey Aimes in North Country, doesn't believe her performance matches those of category rivals DAME Judi Dench and Reese Witherspoon.

She says, "Am I confident I'll win? Are you crazy?

"No, I'm not at all confident."

Theron was catapulted to international stardom after winning the 2004 Best Actress Oscar for her lead role in MONSTER.
