Paul Bettany - Bettany's Never Seen Dogville30 September 2011
Bettany's Never Seen Dogville
The British actor played a writer in Lars von Trier's 2003 drama, alongside a star-studded cast including Nicole Kidman and Lauren Bacall.
But Wimbledon star Bettany did not enjoy his time making the movie - and as a result he's never seen the final cut.
He tells Britain's Guardian newspaper, "I found it a peculiarly unsatisfying experience because (Von Trier) has no interest in you being any part of the cerebral process with him. You're absolutely his puppet. But no, I don't want to be too down on Lars. He is extraordinary and he is a sensation.
"Everyone's really shocked about my not having seen that one because it's a work of art or whatever, but there's a bunch of my movies I haven't seen. I've seen a few, or you see (one of them) at a premiere."
